Sorry I've been away for a few days. And, believe me, I AM sorry.
I've had the flu; horrible, terrible, restless, shivery, achy, vomity, shitey, flu.
Yes, you can tick all of the above (You did ask. OK, you didn't ask, but I thought I'd tell you anyway).
One of the consequences of my five days in bed is that I have next to nothing to report.
Apart from news of Egyptian President and all-round man-of-the-moment Hosni Mubarak's doppelganger.
I was doing a spot of one-eyed Sunday Times reading and the paper happened to be open at the cartoon. Can you guess who the cartoon featured?
You'll never get it - it was Egyptian President and all-round man-of-the-moment Hosni Mubarak. (Sorry, perhaps I should give you more credit).
Anyway, Jamie saw the picture and excitedly pointed a finger in its direction.
"Mr Bean!" he cried.
A mighty fine observation, young sir.
