A night out with arms dealers

Not literally.

I just spent a very pleasant evening at the local theatre watching Mark Thomas deliver a corking live show. He's been immersed in all sorts of shenanigans, posing as an arms dealer in order to expose their invidious trade. And he wrote a very funny book about his experiences, and now he's most of the way through a live tour talking about it (his experiences, not the book, although I'm sure he's chuffed if he sells a few more at the end of the night). But don't take my word for it - go and see him. Or buy the book.

Mind you, I'm biased. We were at uni together. But he's still very funny. And very passionate.

The rest of the day was searingly dull by comparison. I did my accounts.
