The humour chart is mine, you may have it when I'm done.

Sorry, I couldn't resist letting my ego out of the box for a second there with the title of this post.

The reason for this uncharacteristic hubris?

This:



Yep, Spalding now sits in the top three positions in the Amazon UK Kindle Humour chart.

Woo... and indeed... hoo.

I don't know if it means anything in the grand scheme of things, but it's certainly a big deal for me. I can't think of any other self-published author in the UK (or even elsewhere) who's managed to do this, and am therefore Captain Proudpants and no mistake.

In slightly more commonplace Spalding news, I managed to nearly expose myself to two passing women this morning.

Our apartment here in Oz is on the ground floor. You'd think that having been here for several weeks I would have learned not to throw open the curtains in only my boxer shorts.

You'd think, but you'd be wrong.

Luckily I was wearing my bestest pair of boxers, so there was no inadvertent genitalia on display. I'm leaving the country soon, so would rather avoid being deported thanks to a mild case of indecent exposure.

You see? Even riding high in the Amazon charts I can still make an arse out of myself, no problem at all.
