Are you celebrating?

Today is World Kidney Day. I shall be celebrating it in a pub later on. I also celebrated National No Smoking Day yesterday by smoking to my heart's (and lung's) content.

Hmmm, surely this calls for a steak and kidney pudding for lunch...

Good man. I missed the pleasure of knowing that I was smoking on No Smoking Day through ignorance of the event. I will however have a cheerful grin while I give the old kidneys a work out with my merlot exercise tool later today.

It is also World Glaucoma Day today.

I was smoking on — um, it was way back in 1965, when I had just become old enough to try it. It make me stink, so I thought: "Only a cretin would do this" and stopped — permanently. No excuses: I just did it. It wasn't difficult.

I too didn't realise that yesterday was "National No Smoking Day" but I'm very pleased to note that I, inadvertantly, celebrated it by bringing a few thousand ciggies back with me from Spain.

I celebrated by selling one of mine for £3000 on the black market - that's another few month's rent sorted while I watch the country go down the tubes...
