We look ridiculous. It’s for a very good cause, but thank god it’s the end of #movember

@jeffdaviess Still feeling fine, thanks, 2 years on. Very glad I went through with the surgery. Good luck if you’re considering it.

@jongilbraith Never gone so red! That’s a LOT of people to talk in front of. Serious flashbacks to being at school too.

My blog's so unfinished it will make your eyes bleed, but I'm beta testing it. What would you change about it?

@sevenupcan Looks fantastic. Love the simplicity. Articles felt a bit orphaned without a way home (footer link doesn’t work?)

What’s with all the Patriot-bashing on #boldpredictions today? Mine: Flacco throws more pick-6s than Leftwich throws passing TDs

@boffbowsh the only part of that I understood was TD but somehow I don’t think you were referring to the HTML tag.

@cronkshaw Cheers. Need to see you back in London soon. Many beers and thanks owed.

Off to the Emirates for the North London Derby. Hard to call it.

@cronkshaw And hopefully a rip-roaring 5-0 thrashing of the Scum to enjoy!

I love that new-monitor smell the way some people love the new-car smell.

@mmazour Congratulations on your new arrival.

I wonder how many emails this person has sent with this opening gambit?

Well-earned Chinese takeaway (@ Pitch & Chip)

@barryf try stop all - may still encourage them to send you more crap though!

@ian_winter Tried that too. Just get a “Not Delivered” response.
