Wouldn't it be great if somebody really famous wrote a blog?

Like Liz perhaps...

Sunday, May 18, year of one's reign 51
One was woken up by the arrival of the newspapers. It appears that Edward has been embarassing us in public again. Decided to wear that really awful shade of bright peach today, just to annoy Phillip. One of one's corgis was sick on the footman's shoes - how one laughed.

Or Tony...

Next election minus 760 days
Rang George. He was out. Rang Gordon, then put the phone down when he answered ha ha. Invented a new way of shortening hospital waiting lists. Threw darts at Clare Short's resignation letter again.

Or maybe even God...

Day 1 Created light. Saw that it was good. Decided it should travel really really fast.
Day 2 Created heaven. Saw that it was good. The neighbours sound a bit loud though.
Day 3 Created land and sea. Saw that it was good. There are some really pretty beaches where the two meet.
Day 4 Created the stars and planets. Saw that it was good. Later in the afternoon invented astronomy.
Day 5 Created fish and birds. Saw that it was good. Hid a few dinosaur fossils in the ground to confuse future scientists.
Day 6 Created loads of animals. Saw that it was good. Also created a couple of humans. Decided to give them free will.
Day 7 Took the day off after a hard week. Beginning to wonder if the 'human' project wasn't a big mistake.

I can't claim to have found anyone that famous who writes a blog, but I was delighted to discover (via A Blog's Life) that Richard Herring is now writing one. Richard was half of comedy duo Lee and Herring who did the excellent Fist of Fun on BBC2 back in the 90s. He really was famous back then, in the right circles, honest. He has a wicked and withering sense of humour, and continues to perform stand-up comedy around the country. If you're still scratching your head wondering who he is, never mind, just rejoice in the fact that Richard is writing his daily thoughts online and they're an excellent read. His page (called Warming Up) isn't organised quite like a normal blog because there's a separate page each day, but it's definitely worth the time and effort to explore his archive. I can heartily recommend Richard's thoughts on ageing, babies, sweets and Consecutive Number Plate Spotting for a start. But more on CNPS tomorrow...
