Bad Gag Day

I have discovered this brilliant thing on the Internet called Twitter.  It is a bit like text messaging, but to everyone on the Internet.  You should really go and have a look, it is going to be massive when everyone else finds out about it. …

I go for a run

This morning, struck by the sunshine and the bathroom scales’ most recent verdict, I decided to go for a run. I used to go running at least once a week, which combined with playing football and reasonably regular visits to the gym, kept me in…

A busy week

This week has been a little bit busy, I had a few posts in mind, one including a visit to the post office, which is always worthy of a few hundred words. But now I’m thinking I might just talk about it on the podcast…

The Hospital

My friend TOWTAL (The One Who Talks A Lot) is in hospital with a broken leg and ankle, sustained whilst playing football on Saturday. This meant a trip to the hospital on Sunday to visit him after his ankle had been pinned. I don’t like…

"That's not a dessert!"

I went to Fat Jim’s for dinner. Fat Jim likes to experiment with food.  As I have written about in the past.  He is a bit like a really bad Heston Blumenthal.  But with hair. To his credit, the actual dinner was quite nice, though…

I only wanted a stamp

Following the guilt trip I had been enjoying since telling you all about the conversation with my mother last week, I did something nice.  I took the time to print off some family photos for her that I had taken during the Christmas holidays.  I…

Breaking News

I don’t have any, before you get excited.  It is just that the title seemed appropriate to the story. It was last Wednesday morning and my phone went off at 8am, which it does not do very often.  A quick glance showed it to be…

Christian Bale's train set rant

For those of you who don’t listen to the podcast (I know you’re there) the Christian Bale segment is now up on Youtube, mainly because I wanted to play around with the features of iMovie in iLife 09. Watch it below. Or don’t, it’s up…
