Well, it’s finally happened. I’ve finally been trusted with something that has a plug and isn’t called an iron or a kettle. This week – and for one week only, you’ll be pleased to know – I’ve been given the honour of hosting the great KateTakes5 Listography while the lady herself takes a much-needed break from the hectic pull and thrust of, er, coming up with an idea for a list every week.
Mmm, actually, it’s harder than I thought. You’re trying to prompt your readers into anecdotal inspiration, prod them into delivering a blend of humour and poignancy, push the very boundaries of their creative souls into generating content that will connect with as many people as possible.
Unfortunately, Kate isn’t here to do all that pushing and prodding, so I’ll have to do. C’mon, it’s only a week. One. Week.
So, after much head-scratching and several pints of Doombar, the best I’ve come up with for this week’s Listography is: FINALS
Here’s the premise. A couple of weeks ago we were told the world was going to end. It didn’t (did it? have I missed something?) so The End has now been re-scheduled to December 21 2012.
That leaves us with 18 months to prepare our Final Farewells, Final Suppers, Final Words, Final Destinations, Final Resting Places, Final Shags and lots, lots more.
SO WHAT WOULD YOUR 5 FINALS BE?

Here are my 5 Finals:
…Wagyu sirloin, gently poached under vacuum in a sous vide water bath at 55C for two hours, then rolled in crushed black pepper and oil and flash fried in a white hot cast iron frying pan for 30 seconds each side. Served with thrice-cooked chips and a mushroom-Stilton sauce. No need to die to go to foodie Heaven!
…What’s That Big Rock In The Sky? It seems to be getting closer.
…Corsica, the villa where we spent our honeymoon and had the best two weeks of my entire life before the reality of unemployment sank in.
FINAL RESTING PLACE
…as ashes, scattered over the moors above the estate where I grew up. The Keefy, My Friend, Is Blowing In The Wind, The Keithy Is Blowing In The Wind
OK, so that’s my maudling twaddle done with. Now it’s over to you.
