I haven’t a clue what I’ve let myself in for…

Over the past week, I came up with a challenge for myself to attempt during 2013. It’ll take all year. Basically, can I solve 2500 crossword clues from the Guardian in 2013? It’s towards the upper end of my solving skills, that much I know! You can find more details about it on the “2500 Clue Challenge” page by clicking on the banner above.

So – what do you think of the challenge? Do you think I’ll make it? As its for the charity Rethink, which supports people with a wide range of mental health issues, I’m asking for people to PLEDGE 1p PER CLUE I SOLVE! So, let me know if you want to pledge! Please do, it’s a worthy cause.

Super Saturday!

So, “what am I up to today?”, I hear you cry.

Well, firstly I’m running silly buggers around Battersea Park for a 10k with obstacles! There is a mud bath and an ice bath on the course. Oh god. You can see the course at http://www.mhsurvival.co.uk/ , I may be a cripple afterwards.

THEN I’m rushing home in the evening to commentate live on tonight’s Schlag Den Raab, the superbowl of game shows, where if Raab is beaten the contestant will win €3million! I’m commentating with Lewis Murphy from the fifty50 podcast, Nick Gates from bothersbar.co.uk and the all round Game Show God David Bodycombe.

It’s going to be a good day!
