Hoo pet...do ye wanna hear a cock tale?

Apologies for the lack of posts over the last few days but I went to a wedding on Friday and I’ve been knackered ever since! It was a very classy affair, free bar all day consisting of wine, beer and champagne. This was rounded off at 18.30 by ‘Cocktail Hour’ when free cocktails were the order of the day – very nice. I was obviously a little disappointed by the lack of Mojito’s as they’re my official favourite playboy’s tipple but this was more than compensated for by my discovery of Cosmopolitans – I couldn’t get them down my neck fast enough!!

Later on instead of a cheesy disco we had a real live band who were shit hot and plenty of drunken jigging about ensued. All in all a great day and a good time had by all. Cheers Neil.

Anyway, it’s all a bit slow on the old writing front at the minute. I’m slowly stacking up the rejections for ‘Special’ in an attempt to over-shadow my rejection pile for ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’ and I’m confident of meeting that particular challenge. I’m still writing my Newcastle United memoirs – working title of ‘Magpie Ranger’ (you’d have to be an old school Newcastle fan to get that title – so the Wallsend Ultras are out!) and that’s proceeding slowly but surely. It’s a bit cathartic really, I keep remembering things from my youth that still make me laugh now – stuff like being chased across the pitch at Rotherham or hoying Mars bars at Gazza, those were the days eh.

Right then, best get on with some work – see you later.

Me and the rest of the ultras are feeling a little miffed by that last post,since when have you ever lived for sex and danger,honestly its the daftest thing i've heard since William Hague Claimed to be able to drink 20 pints!

Look it up on the internet did you? Call me pedantic but little Willie actually claimed he could drink 14 pints.

I can drink fifty cos I'm a Magpie Ranger!
