An amusing Christmas distraction

Our annual SEX party (Self Employed Xmas) found me assuming the role of auctioneer to raise money amongst the assembled 25 or so creative luminaries on behalf of our old, and sadly missed, pal Kenny Harris for his charity of choice; Diabetes Scotland.

Post lunch, rather lubricated my job began and after a few successful and enthusiastic lots had been sold we moved onto “the Sting” lot donated by David Reid for a “lost afternoon” lunch at The Canny Man’s.  Everything covered including taxi home.

All were pre-warned not to bid under any circumstances (for a wee laugh) apart from one person who tried but was restrained from bidding.  The action was caught on camera by a stealthy Mike Coulter.

The auction went on to raise £1,800 and David had the last laugh as his lot reached the highest total of £200 when it was later auctioned for real.

Enjoy!

Mark Waites, Mother London

I was extraordinarily priveleged to host an event for STV last night in which we had Mark Waites, founder and creative director of Mother London, speak.

By 3 am, as the grappa had flowed ceaselessly at Rufus Wedderburn’s gaff, I was quite tired.

But Mark was wonderful and if you follow this link you’ll find a fantastic photographic capture of the event thanks to my dear freind, Mike Coulter.  He likes a grappa or two, too.

Twitter ye Not?

For those of you who missed my earlier post about Twitter you might have missed the burgeoning debate.  It really is getting quite heated.  Do feel free to join in here.
