The price of fame, in blogland, appears to be nasty comments. At least that’s what some visitors, the minority it would seem, to Naked Blog take it to be. Peter rightly points out that it is his writing that is the key element of his site, but I’m not sure that the following statement is…Continue reading What's in a name?
Blimey, it’s almost cold enough to freeze the testicles off a monkey made from a copper and zinc alloy! Anyway, my fingers are just about warm enough to type so I have a question. How long should I wait for payment before re-listing an item on eBay? The bidding ended 5 days ago, and I’ve…Continue reading Patience?
Blimey, it’s almost over ALREADY! A few beers on Friday night, and after dragging myself away from the pub I came home to find the remnants of a curry Louise had ordered, bonus! Admittedly after a few pints of Guinness and a spot of curry, Saturday was a little… windy. Thankfully by the time Saturday…Continue reading Weekender
Meme alert. Yes, always a sure sign that I’m too busy to be bothered actually putting some effort into posting here, it’s meme time. This one was stolen from Neil and has scared me a little, particularly the first set of stats. Who the hell needs that many tracks?* How many total songs? 11,937 songs,…Continue reading iTunes Meme

It’s been a long time since I attend…Continue reading Here's tae Rabbie

What’s the point of having a website and an email address if you don’t check them and respond to potential customers?! Eh!! A question. Whilst driving to the airport to pick up my sister-in-law today I was bullied out…Continue reading Miscellany
Recently, Adrian of Sevitz admitted to spending a lot of money getting his hair and nails done and it got me thinking. Now, I’m the type of guy who still visits a barber, refuses to pay more than Â£10 for a haircut – my last haircut cost £6 instead of £8 because “let’s be honest…Continue reading Grooming
(and several other far more interesting people) February 18th, the Jolly Judge pub in Edinburgh, anytime after 2pm (full details). Just thought I’d mention it here lest anyone miss it, and yes I’ve emailed everyone who has attend previous blogmeets. At least I think I did… Anyway, be there or be the product of a…Continue reading Meet the author
Despite the fact I’ve only been away for a week I seem to have lost some of my usual ‘productive’ habits and I’m struggling to get my head around everything I need to get done this week. Typically that means I resort to one thing. A big long list. Trouble is, having started it, I’m…Continue reading Personal Priority Ponderings
