How long is a piece of string?

Slightly misleading title but it’ll make more sense in a minute.

Recently, I was in pain and I was asked by a medical professional how much pain I was in using a 1 to 10 scale (1 being in no pain and 10 being in the worst pain I have ever felt). Now, I know they have to ask this question to gain an understanding of how much pain a person is in but here’s the thing: I have a very low pain threshold. Very low. Paper cuts and migraines ruin me, let alone the kind of pain I was faced with a couple of days ago.

I’m prety sure pain is relative and so I find it hard to see how it can be measured. What was extremely painful for me might not have been for someone else. And I know the scale is based around how much pain I’ve been in before and how the current pain ranks but I’m not sure how accurate it is.

Regardless, I was in pain.

Plugging.

No, this isn’t about plugs. Although, now we’re talking about it, doesn’t it bloody hurt when you stand on a plug? Apart from an ear ache, migraine, sinus infection or tooth ache I reckon that has got to be one of my most feared pains.

Anyway.

There’s this bloke who edits my videos, laughs at my jokes and is genuinely a top lad. He is a huge supporter of my comedy and I owe quite a lot to him.

He’s a talented guy himself and has recently set up a radio station which promotes unsigned acts and up and coming people from all walks of the entertainment/arts umbrella.

I strongly suggest you check his website out as he’s an inspiration and he puts a lot of work into what he does and deserves a hell of a lot of recognition.

Plug over. 🙂

Eurovision.

Yeah I’m about ten days late but…

So you know that little montage of clips they show before a country performs? I thought that was a little glimpse of that country. Like some tv person in France went “Oooh show them some vines and a sped up trip round Paris!” but, it turns out that, it’s actually all about the country that’s hosting. I never knew that!

They say you learn new things everyday!

Stupid things people say: no. 4

“Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun.”

I don’t mind when someone says this when you’re out with friends and you’re commenting on the situation seriously. In fact, you’re stating fact. And time has probably “flown” because you were having a good time. I like having a good time.

I DO mind when people say it at work because: 1, that kind of raw sarcasm annoys me and 2, it’s not possible for the time to fly. Time doesn’t fly. Time just is. It can’t fly, it can’t run, it can’t skip (unless you have a slightly juddery clock like we do at work where it looks like it’s skipping).

Grrr.

P.S. My guitar is still in the boot of my car.

Anger management.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have an anger management problem. As I’m sure you can imagine, this has an impact on my driving. A negative impact.

Today I found a way to combat driving related anger and it went a bit like this.

Earlier I was driving across the common which is a 30 mph speed limit zone. Out of no-where a car whizzed up behind me, pushing me to go faster. I didn’t for a multitude of reasons including: I had no need to go faster, I was in a 30mph zone already doing 30 and the cars in front of me were also going 30 so even if I wanted to go faster I couldn’t.

The angrier the person behind got, the more amused I became. They couldn’t overtake me because of the stream of people in front of me so they were stuck.

I popped Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” on my ipod and whacked it up to full volume. I wound down both my windows. I sang my heart out, waved my hands around and swayed my head. (I also hit the pavement twice but I’m willing to forget that!) She was getting so annoyed behind but I was having the time of my life.

I think I’ve found a new way to get my own back and I rather like it.

I have an addiction.

Hi everyone, I’m Wagg and I have a problem.

There, I said it.

My addiction is Amazon purchases.

A couple of days ago after watching Gok cook Chinese food I bought his autobiography. It arrived today and I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting it. I mean I knew I’d ordered it but there it suddenly was. Another book to add to my Amazon collection.

Don’t get me wrong it’s not that I don’t want it. I do: I love Gok Wan and I’m interested to read about his life but I guess it’s a scary thought that I can click a few buttons and (almost) whatever I want will turn up at my house for just a small fee. It’s quite daunting.

I hate to think how much money I’ve spent on there in the past two years: my bank statements are littered with purchases and prices.

It amazing though. I wonder if that’s what the name came from? Maybe it was originally called Amazing-On but they just shortened it? However it came about I’m glad it did.

I love you Amazon, I really do.
