It seems if I wake up and my phone has loads of messages on it these days it means somebody has died. Either a comic like Robin Williams or Rik or hundreds of people as in Gaza.
My friend Josh Howie, (who got five stars in Edinburgh from Kate Copstick in the Scotsman Hooray!) suggested I start stockpiling obits of my friends. In a quiet moment I could work on a eulogy to somebody I know because who knows? I might be talking about them on 5 Live in a few weeks time or doing a piece about them for the Telegraph.
