Why Sweep Is Better Than Sooty …

… because – and I’m being about as culturally sensitive as Prince Philip here – it’s the tomb sweeping festival which means I get 3 days of national holiday and you get 3 days of no ‘Campbell blog bollocks’.

That’s a big case of Win:Win in my book.

So till Thursday, happy working. [Cue: Smug bastard laugh]

Good. You can give your blood pressure a rest.

I come here to vent spleen to find you’ve buggered off again

Well done for exploding western stereotype of the – working our finger to the bone – Chinese work ethic.

While you kick back, think of the weekend I spent trying to fix a fucking roof box to our ‘admit you’re totally past it’ Renault Scenic,basically so we can take the gazillion outfits Mrs Northern keeps buying for little Evie when we go stay with my Mum and Dad next week.

That and the four hours I spent with Will on his new trampoline, while Juliette scoured the most overpriced purveyors of baby clothes in the universe to find Evie’s christening dress. I’m a finely honed athlete, but my back aches, my shins are on fire and I want to lay down.

Is this all Andy has to look forward to?

This has made me happier than when you go on a Media Arts rant and up until now, I didn’t think that was possible.

Happy holiday for you and happy christening for Evie – I’m sure she’ll look stunning in her 10,000 pound, Stella McCartney dress.

So Jill actually did call the police

I saw this, he’s become a bit of a hero to me now – especially the way he ends the song with even more pomp than Queen managed at Rock In Rio, and that’s saying something!

What interesting thing did you do today? Thought so.

Comment by DH

Sweep is a legend.
Absolute legend.
That’s probably enough justification for a day off in China it appears…!

Comment by Rob Mortimer (Not a fake Andy)

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by andy@cynic

I know … I know … but I thought as it was Easter, I’d give you all a break.

Then I decided that was way more than you deserve so I wrote a post for you.

You can thank me later.
