First of all, please support Oxfam’s campaign to get pharmaceutical company Novartis to allow India to produce more affordable cancer drugs.
I’ve been on a business trip to Brussels for the last couple of days. Did you get that? Business trip. I’ve been on a business trip. How grown up is that? There I was, representing my workplace in the heart of European democracy. It’s moments like these that make you feel out of your depth. Well, that and the fact I was disappointed to have to go to a an official dinner rather than being able to watch Superman Returns on pay-per-view.
Talking of dinner, am off to the Imperial in Wolverhampton for our annual ‘nearly Christmas’ pig-out on Saturday. Remember, all you can eat isn’t an offer, it’s a challenge.
I was going to rant about the quality of last week’s comics, but it seems a bit late now. Instead, I’ll just big up the Tintin toys I saw in Brussels airport. Especially the Destination: Moon rocket ship, which I was really tempted to buy. Didn’t think I’d get it through customs though. It doesn’t come over in the pictures, but it looks like you could do some damage with it…!
To close, rest in peace, Doctor Who author Craig Hinton. The condolances thread over on Outpost Gallifrey is testimony to a fine writer and the community of fandom…
