BBC before Breakfast

Sunday morning, picture the scene: too early for much activity on the street apart from the odd early riser walking to the shop to get the papers. A black cab waits outside Castle Smith, diesel engine thrumming. Yours truly, unshaven and casually attired, sneaks out of the house as quietly as possible; taking care to not bang the awkward front door and wake the Monkey slumbering upstairs.

No, I wasn't up to no good (shame on you for thinking that), I was heading off to the BBC's Birmingham base at the Mailbox to give an interview about blogs and bloggers; the third I've done for them in 2 weeks. You can listen to what I sound like early on a Sunday morning here, by choosing the 'listen again' (sunday) option. I think I was on about an hour into the show.

Keeping on the Asian theme, I called into the Desi Sweet centre on the way home and woke the Monkey up with mango kulfi for breakfast. Quick radio interview before an ice cream breakfast: who says the life of a blogger isn't rock and roll?

Well spotted Piet. Goes to show I'm useless at self promotion.

Am planning on building up a non-blogger site/blog in the next few months. Will redirect from here and hopefully will keep both updated automatically for a while. Hope I can remember that URL

Ok, it's not TV yet, but it's coming really close! ;-) No, seriously: jolly nice show, old chap! (which is the most cliché English phrase I can think of at the moment). If they ever need a Belgian interviewee in the show... :-) Then again: how early in the morning is early in the morning for this show?

Thanks Broady - feel free to rummage through the archives as much as you like. I'll even get round to posting this week if I ever get my inspiration/mojo kickstarted.

PS - mango kulfi is a type of Indian ice cream. Delicious!
