Strange comments...
... about me.

Last night I had the pleasure of the "third unexpected nice thing someone has said about me this year".

I'm anxious not to base my personal happiness on other people's opinions, but it is ok to massage ones own ego a little?

I should write them down really in case I forget.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

You should have had far more than three nice things said about you this year. You should start a nice things about Simon poll.

Spare me! "The ego canna take it Cap'n".

Actually there's been some other occasions when some people have said "Thank you" to me which has been most gratifying - and I didn't want the post to sound like I was looking for ego massage - so perhaps it's just the three interesting comments that have made me glow so far, or at least stop and appreciate.

Maybe a "Say interesting nice things about Simon" poll, or I could ask for compliments for my Birthday :-)

Were you in St Martins Lane this morning? If you weren't you've got a doppelganger!!

Doppelganger I'm afraid. The only daylight I've seen in London today is between St James' Park tube and the office - which is about 20m.

Bizarre. A very scary doppelganger indeed. He even had the same bag...!

Surely you've made your position clear on the matter?

I keep all mine in a special place in my head and bring them out when I am miserable.
Tis good to remember that people think nice things of you now and again, and sometimes you can even believe that they might be right...
