I am not making up any of these details, or exaggerating one bit. I was doing some work, and my mum was hovering around on the phone. She was catching up with whoever was on the other end of the line with what my siblings and cousins were up to.
“Our David’s just started a job teaching at the British school in Manila. He gets his own house, a live in maid, and a driver!
Becky’s just started being a tutor out in Dubai.
Nick’s just been promoted at his job as an actuary in London.
Vicki’s just come back from delivering a speech at the UN in Brussels. She’s been rebooked to do one in Norway with Kofi Annan.
Chris is going round the world soon.
Mark’s still working as a consultant in Amsterdam
And Paul…. Paul was doing a gig in Portsmouth last night (long pause) I think he got paid for it”
I did as well. I got paid for a gig that didn’t even happen. That’s how succesful I am .

Found a pad with the setlist I wrote 4 years before I did my 1st gig. I'll post a pic when I've stopped weeping at my youthful twattishness

that last quote came from the man I am writing a TV show with. It'll end as a murder suicide, it's just which way round it'll happen

@Myk_Osborne well done mike, you've been on twitter a week and you're sending out spam.

RT @joshgondelman: Now that I'm an adult, college deans from movies seem so much more reasonable.
