And you'll always find me in the kitchen at parties

Gosh, look at the time. While I sit at home in my slippers, awaiting the imminent arrival of Benedict Cumberbatch with a basket full of kittens and a tanker full of chilled gin and tonic*, I might as well take the opportunity to pen a few lines of gratuitous self-promotion. After all, it IS only once a year (hem hem).

A Poem About Time and Space and Other Important Stuff (Honest)

Once again, it is time to celebrate the anniversary of my birth
And the fact that I have now spent thirty-nine years living on planet Earth
Which is a scarily high number, so would it be terribly naughty
If I moved to Mars next year and started counting again from scratch, in order to avoid being forty?

By the way, a brief note to any Merlinites: I'm afraid you'll have to wait until Sunday for my recap post. But my hopes are high that they'll show the long-mooted all-nude revue episode this week, so you'll probably faint in shock and never notice that I wasn't around...

* Let's hope he doesn't get the two mixed up in his excitement, otherwise there might be a bit of a mess.
