Scaryfied to death!

“Why is he still outside?” I asked. “He’s been out there ages.” “He’s scarifying the lawn.” I had never heard the term scarifying before, and it sounded absolutely terrifying.  I had images of my friend jumping out on the lawn shouting “Boo!” or running around…

A bit of boring admin

Once a year I look at this website and think, “Jesus it’s looking tired, perhaps I can jazz it up a bit?” I then spend a few hours teaching myself basic CSS code, testing a few things, fucking it up royally, before finally admitting that…

Festive Salutations!

It is that time of year again where people give gifts and presents and hope against hope that the presents received this year are not total shite.  I am beyond that of course, as I recognise that at twenty-thirteen it is unlikely I am going…

Milestones

There are moments in a man’s journey, when he feels like he is passing from one phase of his life, to the next. It can be triggered by something small, but the dawning realisation of what is happening can be huge.  Which is what happened…

Urinating efficiency

I had always been bemused as to why women insist on having cubicles in their public conveniences.  Especially when you see the length of the queues in even in a semi-popular venue.  Surely it would make much more sense to have them all use some…
