    A weakness exposed
    Josie Long tells us that she's been learning from a more experienced, wise performer friend, to turn her weaknesses into strengths. Get to know yourself, and in the honest appraisal of your character focus on the negative side so as to find ways towards making the negative positive. She then tells us that her weakness is her stomach (and admittedly she is a little chubby in that area). And then she demonstrates how she has turned her spare tyre from a weakness to a strength, by pulling up her t-shirt to reveal her midriff on which she has felt-tipped a picture of a bright blue tidal wave, above which, in yellow ink, arches the word MARVELLOUS. It's very good.

    I'd diaried-in the day as one in which I would begin writing my next round of Common Prayers but spent that time instead looking up the rental prices of serviced apartments in Leeds city centre. Not a totally wasted day but a weakness exposed. So an evening at Liverpool Comedy Festival with a dose of Josie's heavenly ordinariness was very refreshing.
