Feeling much, much better, and actually having today and tomorrow off anyway, I decided to spend the day wandering round the shops. You know the type of wandering, the type you have to do on your own, because you are the only person who wants to look at the type of things you want to

ReligionSPEAKEASY: The one man show that is Carey Henderson, keeps getting better.I've contributed one article and just sent off a short piece about my early dalliances with religion.I don't believe in God. (So why the capital letter? hmmm)I do believe in people's right to believe in whatever they want to believe in... I do believe

Still awakeBeen awake since 7:30 a.m., which given the past few days, is something of an achievement. Mind you, I'm off for a snooze now as I can hardly keep my eyes open - hey, it's hard work catching up, cripes what's it going to be like when we go on holiday later in the

We held a diet contest in my workplace last year. I won it. Lost almost two stones (28lbs) in 10 weeks. I did it healthily, started going to the gym, ate sensible, healthy foods. I felt good about myself, looked better, and enjoyed (in that embarassed way we Brits manage so well) the compliments. I've

I Spy

I Spy A harmless film but that's not really an excuse. Questionable comedy 'romp' vaguely about a spy (Owen Wilson), who recruits a famous boxer (Eddie Murphy) to help him infiltrate a baddies base.

Yawn...Working at home, which is just as well as I feel bleuch. Surprisingly not hungover bleuch, but 'fighting off a cold' bleuch. How many Vitamin C pills are you allowed to pop in a day?Ohh and huge, embarassed, apologies to everyone who I was in contact with last night. Be it a comment left on

I think this is getting out of hand.An in-joke is slowly spreading, to the point that the finer points are now a matter of debate. A phrase containing one or more galactic toss monkey(s).
