I've finally got around to updating the MBedd site, ditching the full flash version, and instead going for the static picture based approach. More people seem to be asking me for HTML5 stuff now, so I thought I better adjust accordingly.
MBoredPosted by mbedd Mon, June 04, 2012 17:17:28 At last, here is proof that I am in fact an award winner.
On July 30th 1983 I beat all the competition and received the highest accolade ever imaginable by anyone ever.
That's right, I won the Star Letter in the Beano.
Yes, my tale of getting my Beano annual signed by the mighty sub new romantic singing sensation Tony Hadley, had propelled me into the limelight. I always treasure that memory, always realising I would never achieve anything as special as that ever again in my life ever.
-Even though Dennis tried to trump my story with his spurious Duran Duran autograph ramblings, adding more fuel to a Spandau versus Duran war that had been raging since the beginning of time.
-Even though I hadn't been honest in my letter, and had actually deliberately taken my Beano to be signed, and the autograph book mishap I had mentioned was in fact a shameful fabrication to give the story more colour and drama.
-Even though I scorched and frayed the stripey faux Dennis the Menace
jumper I had won, because I needed it for a Freddy Krueger fancy dress
costume many years later.
