Tom Tully for his golden ageness.

Ian Edges it for me.

Coin flip one for me and it's... Hebden!

Cheers Funt!

A familiar tale Sheridan. I'm conscious that this lockdown could be looked back on as a missed opportunity by many and that's why I was keen to try something to focus my ambitions and be accountable to them.

I'm glad to have finished my exams a year ahead of schedule and I'll always look back on the qualification as one good thing that came out of the pandemic.

I keep trying to refocus so that I don't come out of the pandemic as a fat(ter) alcoholic with a bad haircut!

Good luck with your endeavours!

Another month goes by and another shameful post. Well it's not all bad and we can blame that pesky virus can't we?

Lose Weight : Does putting on weight count? Drinking most days and Takeaway Fridays' have meant that the battle is being lost. Fear not, drinking has been reduced to weekends only and the all day breakfast on Wednesdays is going to be muesli. OK, a bacon roll then,

Update the Lettersentertainyou thread : Done! This has been an easy one to maintain as there was only one Nerve Centre letters page in May and it produced this Lettersentertainyou offering. A big hit too! 500 reads! People will literally read anything in a lock down! hello?

Average 12,500 steps a day : Did about 13k yesterday but for the most part I walk an hour a day which gives me about 6000 in total. Must walk to a takeaway that's further away!

Get 105 Letters Printed : - Sent in a couple but losing the muse as most are going straight into Tharg's trash bucket.

Pass ACII : Success! One to cross off the list.  I passed 'Marketing insurance Products' and got the last credits I needed for my ACII. I am at last a professional! Only took me about 31 years. I am presently awaiting the certificate which takes ten weeks as it's hand inscribed. Hoping for a full gown affair at the end of the year. That'll show them!

Update the Blogs : Sadly I discovered 'Rick & Morty' and Youtube videos of people opening bags of coins looking for rare ones. I did manage to log Watermelon with the lovely Anna Friel and definite articles The Dirt and The Martian. Will try to hit double figures next month so you all have more not to read.

Get on TV Again : Nothing happening - will fashion some applications. Most now look for a video clip so that'll be embarrassing.

Bag 50 Munros in total : Sadly off limits unless you need an eye test.

See you next month for more dismal results.

Buttonman ACII.

I met Pat at a signing in 2009 and he was very patient with my inane questions, and very personable. No one can be in a good mood all the time, so maybe you caught him at a bad time.

I was in no way slagging off the wonderful Pat - merely that his aura and reputation meant that I didn't feel an approach would leave me unscathed. Mike on the other hand is downright cuddly.

Tough draw for TC but I have to go with the crowd and vote for Pete. All things considered the first series of Bad Company is the best their combined oeuvre can offer, and that swings it for me.

I'll go Si - John seems a nice bloke but his stuff is a bit weirdo freak out for my tastes, which I fully appreciate is his appeal to others.

Al for me - we had a nice chat once about the depressions left in carpet by furniture. He seemed genuinely taken with my tip of leaving an ice cube on top of them. I also like Zombo although Dan does well with his Insurrection stuff.

Favourite writer? That's easy, the lovely Mike who always seems pleased to see you and even listens to your witterings about the letters page. I'm sure Pat Mills is lovely but I saw him at the bar at the 40th and he had an aura that said 'fuck right off' - I didn't approach. This is to my detriment as he is a God in 2000ad terms but I couldn't see him indulging me in my mindless pap!

Your chance at the 50th Pat!

No letters page Buttman!

The last Dreddlines was in Meg 404 - I'd be more surprised if there was one. Sad times.

Bollocks I'm a numb nut.

Stephen Watson (of Paisley)

as he's lost his place in the competition.

Please forgive me you fine example of a man and a writer.

Oh FFS - this is why my ears have been burning - sorry Head & Shoulders complaints department.

If I mentioned that I'd actually appeared in 102 issues would that help? (Reader Profile and Editor mention).

I am happy to put my oeuvre up against many of the greats - bring on 'Invasion 1990' and 'Death Planet' (original only).

El Sloano in 19th place has written the same number of letters as the two people in joint 20th place.

The deliberate 'Persian flaw' inserted into the table has served its purpose - proof that someone actually reads this!

Matron! Give my my crayons back now! This has gone on too long!

Yes, your seemingly inexorable fall down the charts must be a cause for concern...

Strange that despite covering 37 scribes not one lady has made the list! Wonder why?!

oooh, get you letters man with your fancypants '90s-level google image graphics! Somebody's got too much time on their hands.
