Patrick

Do you take Diners Club?

Ben

OMG that is a fucking brilliant idea. You've smashed it. Again.

I've just donated my dollar. Worth every cent and it's not often I get to say that.

Colman

Paddy, God knows, I just do the jokes.

Evening, Kev.

Colman

Oh, hi, Ben.
Thanks for your support.
I'm thinking of contacting Big Yellow and seeing if they want to talk again, it feels like it's time.

Ben

They've been quiet haven't they? This feels like something they could really get hold of. They're big on social curation.

Although there was that thing about you "giving them the finger", remember?

Brett T. T. Macfarlane

Intrigued but can you firs please promise this endeavor will ultimately become a book, keynote topic at a media conference, a new agency model or sitcom idea for the 2012 fall line of last place US network NBC. Thx.

Colman

I can't say too much about it, but I'm hoping to bring Richard Keys on board in the morning, that ought to help them get over the finger thing.

Colman

Brett, do you really have to ask?
I'm getting t-shirts printed tonight.

Brett T. T. Macfarlane

Excellent. I've made a call to my media buyer.

Paddy

Who was Kev calling a twonk, you or me?

Colman

Thanks, man.

Colman

God knows, Paddy, I'm able to tune him out.

Ben

Where the fuck is Fresh? Not moaning about being fucking late home again? We need him on this. He has contacts in the media.

Ben

And Tash.

Tobybarnes

You need to give people a badge for donating - you know gamify the campaign.

Colman

Ben, he'll be here in a minute, he's stuck in the toilet at KFC.

Toby, they'll be hugs not badges - think 2007.

Ben

Hey, I'm in on the Superbowl ad too. Is that $2?

Topfife

I don't have any dollars, do you accept pounds?

Colman

Hi Topfife, probably.
Although you need to write in if you want a receipt.

Colman

No Ben, you'll need to put in $50k for that.

marcus

an important and timely post.

Colman

I know, Marcus, I know.

Age

I'll be honest, I'm worried this blog will change once the 24 million kids arrive. You still have my $1 though, Paul :(

Colman

Hey Age, I just don't think it will change.
Although I am now in talks with a media company about selling up.
Anyways...

Ben

Remember when you gave a bike away? Your mate David won it.

Happy days.

Zuck

Liking your angle. We should do lunch.

Colman

That bike was eventually stolen, which took him ages to get over.
In the end I just had to give him a stern talking to.

Colman

Thanks, Zuck.
I like your site too, it's a useful way to stay in touch with friends and that.

doug

Take a boo son, take a boo

doug

Ps Colman, fuck you

Pps Evening, Paul

Kevin Dryden Donne Chesters

MASSIVE twonk

Asi

I'm truly inspired. Truly. Or is it utterly? And as a consumer of this blog I really feel engaged.

I just chipped in with 2(!) US of A dollars.

My 2 conditions are as follow:

1. You will call your first son (or daughter) Asi.

2. I wish to play superbowl in your ad

Cordially.

A.

Colman

Asi, you should have negotiated harder, I was going to do that anyway.

Fresh, embarrassing.

Asi

daim!

doug

Morning, Colman.

More importantly, do we have the money yet?

Thomas

Good morning.
I just supported your most noble cause with $2 and hope you will teach the kids something about life in the middle. Or use the attention for something like world peace. (Plus I want the same t-shirt that Mr Macfarlane gets.)

Colman

Thomas, thank you for your comment and your money.
There's been an issue with the t-shirts, and world peace, but I think I can resolve the t-shirt issue by end of play (not sure about the world peace issue, leave it with me).

John

Do you take cash?

Topfife

Good afternoon,

I have converted my £0.65 into your $1. When should I expect a copy of your blog to arrive in the mail?

Colman

John, let's take that conversation off-line, I think the revenue might be listening.

Topfife, thanks, I might bring it around myself - will be sometime before 7am, in March, if that's cool.

Tobybarnes

Afternoon, thinking about plush toys of the blog. will those be available soon?

Colman

Hi Toby, no they won't.

Tom

Hey this sounds great ! All your readers need good CV market tools.

Now about I write your CV ? We need good write CV and theseis document.

One time and all spell checks.

Best trained staff with full attention and all polite.

Colman

Oh, hi, Tom.

VicHoon

You are thinking big. I love this.

Colman

VicHoon, I'm glad you recognize the vision of this thing - you're one of the few.

David Young

Colman, parting with my dollar was painful. Not the thought of being a dollar poorer, but the hassle of updating paypal credit card numbers, getting charged a foreign exchange fee, etc etc. As one of the world's best advertising people can't you set up some kind of text message number that allows people to donate a pound by simply texting the number? Make it easy and you'll have the money rolling in.


(PS I am still gutted by the bike theft. The best bike I ever owned - if the text donations method takes off, can you buy me a replacement bike?)

Shib88

Can I pay in person? I just want to make sure you're not a Nigerian paypal scamster.

Colman

David, this is not about innovation, I don't have time for that.

Shib88, please feel free to grab me on the bus tomorrow.
