- break 1) resigning from his job and earning only £120 over the next four months, that was a damn long break I can tell you,

So, why am I setting up a 'blog instead? Well, I admire Richard Herring's Warming Up greatly and like the way he uses that space to explore ideas, examine his navel, force himself to be entertaining daily, and erm, warm up for the proper writing. Furthermore, everyone else has one now. If nothing else it'll get my thoughts out the house now and again even when I'm not getting out much myself (hence the puntastic title).
Don't expect anything earth-shattering here, and don't expect daily missives either. Expect the unexpected if you like (it sounds like one hand clapping in a forest where no one can hear it)...
