Good job Colin!

Have you approached Dan for a comment? I'd be chuffed if it was me!

Another month flies by - hope all are well as we start to emerge from the shadows - stay where you are Leicester people!

Thanks for the kind words about me passing my exams - would have posted earlier but I'm conscious of bumping such a vanity thread!

This has been a quick month with success on some fronts. Others, not so much.

Lose Weight : Not doing well with the gym shut down. Curbed the wine until the weekends only but the Friday night takeaway is a killer + a peshwari nan. This will be the last week of gluttony as we are getting a kitchen fitted and takeaways are all we have! In mitigation I've not had chocolate or Haribo in months and I have lost the urge for snacking.

Update Blogs regularly : Did my usual 'focus too much on one thing' thing again with a total of 44 films watches and critiqued. 45 if you count the Will Ferrell Eurovision one that doesn't fit my criteria. The Definite Article blog saw the most with a whopping 25 entries. Best of the month was The Duellists which was Ridley Scott's first feature. The 'W' Blog saw 19 entries with the pick of the litter being Wind River which was cold and brutal. Lovely!

Update the Lettersentertainyou thread for each letters publication event : No Nerve Centre or Dreddlines letters this month. For shame. Again!

Average 12,500 steps a day : Probably averaging about 6000 - spending too long inside watching movies that start with a 'W'.

Get 105 Letters Printed : - Sending fewer as all are going in the bin. C'mon Tharg unquarantine that inbox!

Pass ACII : Still awaiting the certificate but did get notified that I'd been awarded the CII Certificate for 'Excellence in Claims Practice'. Another certificate awaited along with £250. Actually I was jointly awarded it, but we won't talk about that.

Get on TV Again : All games shows are now reruns and no one is recruiting!

Bag 50 Munros in total : Parked until the Summer!

Pat has the history but he also has the sexy ostriches. Two piles of trades - what do you pick? Got to be Dan Abnett for me.

Dan's the man for me in this match up.

Pat for being a 2000ad man for life, Moore just used it as a stepping stone.

Used to like Elaine out of Taxi - hope she shows up (in my boudoir).

Interestingly the actress who plays her, Marilu Henner has hyperthymesia or total recall memory; she can remember specific details of virtually every day of her life since she was a small child.

Anyway, good luck with the book!

Nice! A lot of Debbie Harry in there - which was Anderson's original inspiration if I remember correctly?

I think even the most contrary person would struggle to justify a vote against the bearded one. Alan Moore for me.

Rob Williams for producing more stuff that I prefer, but only just.

Not a Slaine fan but Pat's footprint squashes almost all.

Edginton for Leviathan and a few other choice offerings.

Alan Grant for a body of work that is measured in decades. Like the Moore but he jumped a bit to early for 2000ad icon status

McKenzie magic takes the day.

Fodder v Bad Company for me and the sainted one takes it for Kek-W.

A Mills bomb for me.
