…and I’d like to thank my hairdresser, my English professor, and my kilt presser… #TBSU…

…sniff, sniff, sniff… tartan hankie blows nose… wipes away the welling tears… my wee baby, my wee baby… my wee baby’s doing okay… ‘ccording  to the Amazon UK Kindle version of Lies, Lies and Statistics, here’s how it’s doing as of now, eight days after it toddled into the readership universe…

…Amazon Bestsellers Rank:

#150 Paid in Kindle Store

#50 in Kindle Store > Books > Crime, Thrillers & Mystery
#50 in Books > Crime, Thrillers & Mystery > Thrillers…

… like most of yeez lads and Lassies of Blog Land, I care not one jot about best-seller rankings and such… (…who the f*ck am I trying to kid, Mabel???!!!…) … of course I’m gratified with the take-up, drawdown, outtake, up-draw…heck, call it what yeez like… it’s bluudy marvellous just to get an honourable mention… I was one among billions who scoffed when that lassie went nuts at the Oscars a while back…do yeez remember her?… ‘…oh, my…they LIKE me! they LIKE me! they LIKE me!…’ , she squealed, squeaked and squawked while her acceptance speech over-ran about two and a half hours… well, now, in all fairness, I kinda sense a bit of what she must have felt like… so, if any of the Nobel Literature Prize panel is interested, I have been practising a few WURDS of thanks… I’d like to thank my hairdresser, without whose skull-polishing skills my follically-challenged cranium would be dull-matted and boring for the camera shots… I’d like to thank my English professor who regularly insisted that most of my essay WURDS were non-existent, p*ssing me off to such a  degree I continue to this day to invent stuff that sounds like WURDS… I’d like to thank my kilt-presser for ensuring that the ‘hang’ is always sufficient not to land me in jail…(…if yeez don’t understand that, I’m not going to explain it to yeez…) …after that, as they used to say in The Good Old Days, that wonderful television show some of yeez of a certain age may recall, I’d like to thank principally YERSELVES!! for all the LUV and support… yer propagation of this ol’ Jurassic’s scribblings is the stuff of dreams… LUV YEEZ!!!… see yeez later…
