I honestly can’t remember the last time I picked up a user manual, an honest-to-god paper book of technical documentation. Actually that’s a lie, it was just last week when i was tidying up. I picked up several user manuals and moved them to a lower shelf on my bookcase. It’s also been a long…Continue reading Dumping the manual
So, that was Manchester eh? I’m just processing some of the photos I took and thinking back over the past couple of days. What sort of impression did Manchester make on me? Hmmmm. Let’s start with the good stuff. The main reason I was there to see Elbow in their last gig for a wee…Continue reading Musings on Manchester
Apparently, and this MAY come as a shock to some of you… in fact, before I continue perhaps some of you should make sure you are sitting down, even if you already are. So, please could you (yes, you) double check that you can feel your body weight being supported by your arse on something…Continue reading I have a revelation!
I’m sitting at the dining table, the laptop in front of me with a view out of the back garden. I’m being dazzled as the in the sharp light of a crisp winter day bounces off the last of the snow. Ollie has been in a couple of times to check I’m ok, and to…Continue reading Fixing Me
I’ve still to find any good reason to visit Facebook more than once a month. It’s just never really grabbed me, largely because I have plenty of other places online where I can interact and all of them are far more subtle than the constant barrage of utter nonsense that the bulk of Facebook seems…Continue reading Facebooked
Birds flying high you know how I feel, Sun in the sky you know how I feel, Reeds driftin’ on by you know how I feel OK, so it’s maybe not a new day, a new life, or at least not in the grander scheme of things. I’m not reborn or anything, but there is…Continue reading Feeling Good
Sometimes it’s the little things that add up to make something better. The realisation that I probably post to Twitter more than I should hit home recently. I use Twitter to update my Facebook status and, as a few work colleagues can see my Facebook profile, one of the jovial nitwits has created a special…Continue reading Small changes
I am fat (no, it’s not a photo you sickos, just a link to a previous post on this very topic). I am obese, overweight, chubby, big, heavy, and all the other words you associate with someone who is overweight (I’m discounting lardarse and fatso purely because no-one has ever had the gall to call…Continue reading Why am I fat?
OK, perhaps if I head back to some previous “unblocking” techniques I might be able to kick start my blogging mojo. Remember when Referrer Searches were all the rage? Back when we all suddenly discovered that our blogs were being indexed by something called “Google” (weird name…) and that meant we could see how people…Continue reading Ye olde blog
The scene is a small darkly lit room. On the desk sits a lamp and a computer screen glows. A man sits in front of the screen, staring intently. Lost in his thoughts… Bloody hell. Can’t be right. Can’t. Shit. It is. Where’s that list? No, the other one. OK, here we go. 1 of…Continue reading Sneaky
