It's mine and Lisa's 45 month anniversary today, but the first time we've ever celebrated one in February. So technically it's only our 42nd anniversary. Either way I think it's time we started counting it in years.

But while I'm waiting for the marriage proposals to start rolling in, I've been beavering away on the Brighton Festival website this morning, booking my social diary for May. Tickets went on sale this morning, and I wanted to avoid a repeat of last year, when I tragically missed out on tickets for afternoon tea with Joan Bakewell (the famous tart), thanks to my belief that I'd still be able to book the week before.

Anyhoo, the bad news is that my bank balance now looks like the Northern Rock share price, but on the bright side, my calendar looks like this:


5th - The Brighton Moment. An evening with the city's literati. I don't know why I'm not on the bill.

7th - Mike Leigh. Oscar-nominated kitchen sinker.

9th - Celebrating Linda Smith. Believe it or not, this is the most expensive event I've booked, and Linda's not even coming.

17th - Neil Tennant. He won't be singing. Thank God.

18th - Susan Greenfield. Baroness, scientist, writer, broadcaster, Professor of Synaptic Pharmacology at Lincoln College, Oxford, and Director of the Royal Institution. But what has she ever done for us?

21st - Alex James. Rock 'n' roll dairy farmer.

22nd - Gore Vidal. Script doctor on Ben Hur.

23rd - Jarvis Cocker. Michael Jackson's nemesis.

25th - Augusten Burroughs. An American author and recovering alcoholic whose writing "pokes fun at psychiatrists and religious families". I've no idea why I want to go and see him.

Add to all that the fact that I have tickets for Matchbox Twenty at Wembley Arena on the 1st, and the Here & Now concert at the Brighton Centre on the 15th, and I think I'm going to be knackered come June.

I'm not sure I've totally convinced Lisa to come and see Susan, and she doesn't even know about Augusten, but the one person I'm definitely seeing alone is Gore Vidal. He might be one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, but she'd rather see the lead singer of the Pet Shop Boys. It's why I love her. Happy Anniversary. xxx
