Before all that happened, though, I picked up my guitar and we performed a cover of Somethin' Stupid, originally by Frank and Nancy Sinatra. Watch them in action here:
Frank and Nancy Sinatra - Somethin' Stupid (Live)
I think it's quite clear that I didn't learn the introduction and that we both slip up occasionally, but who cares? Here we are, lager-faced and all, paying homage to the song (and each other):

I usually post new covers and new songs on YouTube, so if you want to keep up with all of the latest videos before I get chance to write a story about them, subscribe. Follow Laura on Twitter too, while you're at it.
In other news:
I'm in the middle of negotiations with a couple of exciting new projects. The Lexicologist's Handbook is now up to 'refractory', 471 pages and over 42,000 words. Better, when I finish work on that, I'll be dedicating most of my writing time to my ultra secret upcoming project.
I've been in contact with a guy called 'Kevin' from Deadstar Publishing, and he's expressed interest in publishing 'Angels'. I'm in the process of scheduling a Skype call with him, so keep your eyes peeled for future updates.
I don't have any live dates coming up, sorry - they're taking a back seat while I work on tunes for 'Dipsomania' (working title) and get a couple more books finished. That's not to say that I'm not still taking live dates when offered, though - click here to find out more about booking me.
I've also written a new song called 'Get Together and Dance', which uses the happy title to hide the fact that it's about medication and exhaustion (among other things). That should be out in the next few days, depending - I might record an album version of it (lo-fi sound, standard)!
I'll also be helping songwriter Chris Onslow, one of Nobull's clients, to release a single called 'Secret Dancer', performed by Andrew James and the Secret. I'll write an article about that too, if I get the time.
Last, but not least, me and Laura heard back from Pointless and it looks like we're going to be on the show. I've updated the old article, so find out more about that here. Oh, and buy us the Pointless Board Game.
