Working from home today and got Five Live on the wireless. I had no idea how awful Adrian Chiles is on the radio. It's painfully bad but sort of works because you carry on listening waiting for him to have a 'Richard Madeley' moment.

Is that something involving jizzing?
The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat.

I was thinking about the time he was discussing infidelity on This Morning and a gay bloke rang in upset that his partner had cheated on him.

Madeley said: "I know exactly what you mean. You just don't like him going behind your back, do you?..."

Single Sex clubs, the "Greek life", beating with paddles, drinking until stupified, pitching members against each other, death a potential cost of success. Are they sure it's not "Roman Life"?  

The future of Western democracy is in safe hands.

That Little Miss BW has a birthday party that Mrs BW is taking her to on Sunday lunchtime. My presence is not required.

I'll be on the sofa with a Sky Sports day pass, which doesn't bode well for Forest unfortunately.

Google has a dead man's switch, literally, in that if your account goes inactive for a certain period of time and their attempts to contact you are unsuccessful, they can provide access to a separately named contact - in other words, if you walk under a bus then eventually they'll give your login details to your next of kin.
