It's been one bizarre day.
10.45 - wake up, later than planned - by about an hour
Hurriedly dress and start trying to find a car parts supplier with a new distributor cap for the trusty vehicle. This is a long and difficult process, achieved with a very sore throat.
11.30 - get cash in case of need
11.40 - heading to South Shields, get stuck in traffic - unsure of the route
12.30 - find the car parts place and buy the part
13.00 - arrive home and fit the new distributor cap, finding the old one to have no visible means of ever having worked for the last 180 miles.
13.15 - eat hurriedly
13.30 - set off for rehearsal
14.00 - arrive at the rehearsal in the nick of time
16.25 - leave the rehearsal to meet people to go to Manchester with
20.30 - the Manchester gong show starts
late-ish - I go on stage and, before I've done anything, they're booing me off
late-ish + 5 minutes - having won them back, I leave the stage having beaten the gong and feeling like I was a reasonably competent comedian
late-ish + 20 more minutes - discover I've not won the entire evening, but still feel pretty good.
3.00 - arrive home, somewhat tired... and eat some cranberry filled mini shredded wheat style cereal
In the words of Shaggy - MMmmmMMmmm
