This is a mini blog. Hence the name blig. Things become instantly smaller sounding if you replace their vowels for ‘i’s. There used to be a barmaid at the Sir Thomas A Becket pub in Canterbury who looked exactly like Anna Kornikova if she was a bit squished. Therefore we renamed the barmaid Ini Kinikivi. It works. See? Gotta a lotta stuff to do today so I’ll just blurt some things at you, interspersed with some pictures from the hour before my show last night when myself and Sir Thomas A Craine were bored. Let’s rock it peoples. GO BLIG:
We’ll start with admin. Sorry. But my website front page now has a rolling Tumblr newsfeed. Its already got two new things updated on there so do have a looksie. I have no real idea how Tumblr works and its worth you keeping a keen eye on the front page just for when it all goes wrong and there is just scrolling panic screams.

PREVIEW NUMBER 14
Last night me and Tom drove to Cardiff to the extremely delightful Cardiff Arts Institute. A lovely tiny venue, or vinue if you like, filled with lovely people. Tom’s show has come a long way and rocked it and I had the best preview yet. I am now officially excited about Edinburgh. If there was a box somewhere saying ‘Officially excited about the fringe?’ I would put a big tick in the yes box. That’s a tick as opposed to a cross, not tick like the insect. That would help no one.
Me and Tom are doing one final preview on August 2nd at the Compass before we head up. Details on this tomorrow. After that its all just Edinburgh baby, so hope you’ve booked your tix already.
MY IMPRESSION OF ME IF I WAS A LADY MANNEQUIN
I did a routine spot check this morning and it appears I have a big one right on my face. I’m not sure why, at the age of 29, this still happens. If it means I am still going through puberty, then at least let me grow a bit taller with it to. Otherwise, they need to go. Some people don’t appear to have ever got any spots ever and I feel its only fair I stop getting them now and they have some of mine. I worry that its all because at the beginning of my comedy career I did too many open spots. Arf.

TOY STORY 3
I’m going to see Toy Story 3 today with my friend Ali. Ali knows she is mainly there to give me support when I cry my eyes out.
That’s it. Not much amazing insight, but it was a blig, so now you know. If bligs happen again you’ll be fully prepped. Or should I say pripped? More tomorrow amigos!
