Edit: read my previous post, people are saying interesting things!
Why is there currently a duck outside my flat? It’s been there a while. It scared the bollocks out of me when I heard it quack. I like my nature where I can find it, at a safe distance in parks, not on an estate in South London.
What do I? Not used to nature visiting like this. Do I offer it a fag or something? I’ve only got menthols.
Speaking of ducks, it’s Red Nose Day tomorrow!
That’s an event sponsored by Comic Relief, one of the better UK charities and whose annual with Rowan Atkinson scared me as a child. They fund many great projects, including some of mental health charities such as Rethink. I went to their BBC Radio Three concert on Monday and galliantly- along with almost 4000 other people- broke the world record for most kazoos players in one room! Hooray!
All proceeds of that raucousness went to Comic Relief. If you support them, donate! I’m partly posting this because my limit right now is a fiver, so I hope if people read this and like Comic Relief they can add a fiver, too!
There’s also twitrelief on Twitter and eBay, auctioning off celebrity twitter following and some extras. I’m not sure whether that’s inventive and generous or cynical profile raising shit but it raises cash, so who gives a toss? If there was an auction for kicking Nelson Mandela right in the balls that raised money, it’d be worth it. If there was one for kicking Ricky Gervais in the balls, I’d happily donate both money and an afternoon to really dedicate myself to it.
Anyway, hooray for Comic Relief!
