it was amazing

After the death of Alan's nemesis Tony Heyers:

It was only polite that I got in touch with Jane Heyers. I barely knew her and she'd not exactly covered herself in glory by marrying an idiot like Tony, but widows are needy people and I was going to do everything in my power to support her. So I sent her a travel clock wrapped in black tissue paper and in a black box- not the ones from aircraft. (footnote: Which are actually painted red. Try finding a black cuboid on a sea bed. It'd take you all bloody day!) The card was fashioned from black card. Inside in silver Pentel, I'd simply written 'You are really sad' and I'd made the 'o' of the word 'you' into a smiley face. (I'd thought of doing a sad face but I wanted it to be a celebration of his life). I posted it to her and only then realised I'd forgotten to sign it.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. My children thought I'd gone mad sitting on the sofa crying (with laughter) on Boxing Day.

Emily I read this bit on a plane and couldn't control myself- so good. Another favourite section was the chapter 'My Drink and Drugs Heck'.
