Narcoleptic Presbyterians

Tomorrow sees, at long last, the publication of my important reference book Mr Key’s Shorter Potted Brief, Brief Lives. Within its pages you will learn, among much else, that Eric Clapton is an anagram of Narcoleptic, that Britney Spears is an anagram of Presbyterians, and that, during a foopball match in which the Brazilian Ronaldo faced an opposing defender named Rolando, a commentator asked “how long is it since Ronaldo was marked by an anagram of himself?”. There is much more in the book other than anagrams, so go and queue up at your nearest bookshop for opening time tomorrow morning …

Indisposed

Since returning from my jaunt to Belgium I am afraid I have been somewhat indisposed. I shall spare you the details. Suffice to say that my brainpans remain in full (if uninspired) working order. Fine fettle? I would need to consult a qualified fettlist to be sure on that score.

But things are gradually getting back to normal. There was a new piece in The Dabbler on Friday, and after the Resonance summer break Hooting Yard On The Air is back on the air. Last week’s show is available here, and I ought to remind you that each show now appears on Mixcloud almost as soon as it has been broadcast.

Added to which, my book Mr Key’s Shorter Potted Brief, Brief Lives is – at long last – published the day after tomorrow. Of which more later.

In theory I will be back here tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
