The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 68,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I used to hate long distance running. I would watch runners go past and envy the fact that they could do it – and wondered why they liked it.
Strangely enough that all changed earlier this year. I had heard about an App for my phone which could help you get from ‘couch potato’ to a runner (possibly good enough for the Olympics… okay, I can dream).
I have stuck to the challenges and kept running a few times a week (once every two days when I’m being really good).
A friend of mine in London posted information about the first Big Gay 10K in London on Facebook and I was hooked…
The route will go along the River Thames – It means I get to run past icons like the London Eye, Tate Modern, Big Ben and Westminster! Fab!
You’re allowed to RUN it, WALK it, MINCE it…
It’s a great excuse to get my legs out.
I may not make it to October…
I would love it if you took the time to check out my Just Giving page – You may even like to make a small donation for the wonderful charity. (That’s the easy bit – I’ll be the one running around London in September).
2012…. How did that creep up on us all so quickly?
I am still recovering from the shock that Christmas arrived and went by in a flash. I’ve almost finished my Christmas chocolates. How many days has it been since that lovely day with the family? More to the point – How many days are there until next Christmas?
I’d better get my Christmas list ready…. (just kidding)
I’ve not been blogging very much recently. I have lots of excuses (all good ones). Here are a few:
I am such a popular boy – I have to deal with my fans.
I’ve been in England for two weeks and was unable to blog.
I enjoyed Christmas with family and great friends.
Work has been manic.
I’ve been hit by the old ‘wordlessness’. Eeeeek.
But – Fear not! I am back and aim to keep you all entertained with fresh and funny little treasures over the next few months.
Keep you eyes peeled – I’ll be making you all smile soon.
