One to tick off already! Thank you Dave Gorman

Me, Cheryl, Mike and Laura went to see Dave Gorman last week at Preston Charter Theatre and he was really good. I have never seen much of him on television or read much of what he has done apart from that time he did a show about finding Dave Gorman with Danny Wallace.

This was part of a great wedding present from Mike and Laura. Dave Gorman opened up with riding on to stage with a little red kids bike to represent his tour of Britain on a bike last year. Dave rode from Lands End to John O'groats on a bicycle (he must have a soar backside and a lop side meat and two veg if you know what I mean). His stand up was great with a lot of quirky stories but the second half he came into his own with his now tradtional slide show and this time it was about the history of the honey monster. It was pure comic gold!

Anyway after the show I went up to get Dave's autograph to tick the autograph off the list, a nice bloke who kindly signed it. He said that he did not consider himself to be really famous enough to be called a celebrity, so does the search go on?

And finally...the rest of the list.

Here is the rest of the list.

25. Go on a historical walk of Preston
26. Sort out all my old photo's and put them in albums
27. Go and watch Preston Grasshoppers
28. Write a blog about what I am doing this year
29. Do a Maths course
30. I am not telling you hehehe.... ;0)

I can't believe I have roped my self into the Clevedon Boxing Day run this year. It is only 4 miles but I am not looking forward to the massive hill next to mine parents I will be running up *gulp*.

It was so good being at home with my family and friends at the weekend it made me think about going back to live in the West Country or near that way, it has been a rubbish 18 months job/career wise since I was told my contract would not be renewed at UCLan in October 2008. A change of scenery may will bring better luck on the job front.
