Google ego-alert ego-massage

My google ego-alert email service had a link to this review of Sod That today in the Huddersfield Examiner, by one Chris Mellor.

Here's his conclusion:

Walking on fire is over-rated, he says. Ask the 28 people who suffered serious burns during an attempt to break the fire-walking world record in New Zealand.

Going shopping in Milan, riding a gondola in Venice and visiting Florence are all kicked into touch, although I actually did visit Florence. Nice girl.

“This book is a rallying call for common sense and dignified indolence over hectic, wasteful and morally dubious over-activity. Sometimes staying at home is the best thing to do with your time,” he says.

I couldn’t agree more.

I'm all aglow. Especially since Chris Mellor seems to be a fellow (non-) traveller.
