For those of you who don't recognise it, this is Boston, Mass. One of the greatest cities in the World in my opinion. And I'm going. I'm going because I got an email. Through this blog. From one of you.

I don't know if this is right but I just checked out the stats page and this blog has now received 6500 hits. I had never really looked at the stats before but it seems as if there are loads of you out there reading this blog. Send me an email if you are. No, actually don't bother. I'll never reply to 6500 emails.
You are reading this in The USA, in Australia, Singapore, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Spain, South Africa, Canada, Japan, China, Milton Keynes...I'm really quite chuffed by it all. Thanks

If you didn't get it from the title, those famous lyrics are from the mighty Queen Anthem 'Barcelona'. I have been playing that a lot in the last day. Not because I am the biggest Queen fan around but because I am going there. Did you know Barcelona was on the coast? For some reason I didn't realise that. I am shocked with myself.

Have you ever hidden your wallet, phone and keys in your landlord's kettle before? No, I didn't think so. I hadn't either up until last night.
That, though, is not even the bad news. The bad news is that I can't remember what happened last night but I know it may have been something good. If anyone knows of a way to help you remember stuff please let me know.

I am absolutely sick to death of people spamming this blog. It is becoming the one-stop shop for virus protection, Viagra and body enlargement operations. I am not interested in any of them and I am sure neither are you. I have therefore taken the executive decision to remove the ability to post comments. If you would like to get in touch with me please email email@example.com. Cheers.

It's the afternoon after the day before. The day before in which something truly horrific happened. I can't quite believe it. I narrowly avoided one of the most unpleasant nights of my entire life. And that came on the back of the worst news...ever. Amsterdam is one scary place.

Okay, now I can hardly control myself. The adrenaline is pumping. I have a lead!!!!!!! At long, long last I actually have a lead. Some guy has been in touch to say that he might know who The Man is. They live in Amsterdam so I am going. Next week. This is just incredible. I might have done this. I might have found my friend's look-a-like!!!!!

I'm not really sure what is going to happen to my quest now. I haven't totally given up on it but I have just moved. I've moved from Gloucestershire to London to pursue a career in advertising. You can't really pursue a career in quest completing while pursuing a career in advertising. It just doesn't work. It could change but for the next few weeks I am concentrating fully on my career. I have a competition to enter.

Good Morning. Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who has started posting comments and sending me emails. It seems like people are now reading this blog in droves. Please tell your friends about it. It only takes you to tell someone and them to tell someone and suddenly I might get a lead. Cheers.
Oh, and for people who keep saying is this for real. The answer is Yes. Is a blog not enough to prove it?

Recently I have had loads of invites to join Facebook. I deleted them to begin with but they just kept coming back in droves. I gave in and signed up and now I am an addict. I seem to spend a ridiculous amount of time on there. Anyway, I have set up a Facebook group to help me find this man. I have also started looking at hundreds and hundreds of profile pictures trying to work out whether I can see The Man. It's been a long week.
Edit: Facebook group has been deleted.

So after work I hung around a bit just in case The Man happened to be in Bristol for the day. It was a long shot I admit but I believe that he could be anywhere at anytime. No one can argue with that. Unless he's dead, which I sincerely hope he is not. When I was in Oz I bumped into a guy I knew from school. Surely probability would favour us bumping into each other in Bristol, but no, we bumped into each other in Perth. Why then shouldn't I bump into The Man in Bristol?
He wasn't there this morning though. I'll try again tomorrow.

It's January. It's 2007. It's time for a new start. I am going to put as much effort as humanly possible into finding this guy. It is just wrong to let a man who looks just like my friend Jon, walk around the World as if everything is fine. It really is time to find out who he is.
