Sweaty Little Man

"I started doing physical comedy, because I was like a moving target. You know what British audiences are like - 'he's shit, kill him!' My upbringing taught me to keep moving" Lee Evans tonight. Can't wait. Expecting sore sides tomorrow.

Best of a bad bunch

In the never ending and mind numbingly tedious job that is "adding titles to all my old posts" I've been trying to keep a wee log of posts that I think are my best work on this 'ere blog. Of course this is entirely based on MY preferences and I think it only fair to

How now purple cow?

If, like me, you have a USB drive (or two), you'll no doubt have it filled with wonderful applications, sync'd with a directory or three on your hard drive, you'll be using it to store some personal details in a nice secure little application, and maybe even booting from it and other fancy schmancy things.

Remember me

Dear people who write software programs, I'm not an unreasonable man, and I understand that software mirrors life in that there are always restrictions, things you just can't do. I know that there are other people beside me whose needs you are trying to cater for and that their requirements are as valid as mine.


Whoooooosh There goes the weekend! Saturday morning and we hit Hamilton town centre early. I headed to the shops, Louise headed to Cafe Crema to meet Louise (who she used to work with and who I use to enjoy flirting with on the phone every lunchtime). Home again by noon for a bite of lunch,


Unbeknownst to you, dearest reader, I've lost over a stone in the past couple of months. I started at just over 18stone, and I now tickle the scales at considerably more svelte 16st 10lbs. I've been weighing myself regularly and have consistently lost at least 2lbs every week. But not this week. The fact that


There is one simple rule by which I, and you, can live life. "It's never finished". Now, I could either get all philosophical on you (almost said "on yo ass" there...) or I could just say that I'm still not 100% happy with the banner (the very top bit) of this site. Energy levels dictate

(Late) Weekender

Blimey, is it Wednesday already?? Ohhh I did that, right... as you were. I'd like to ask for two days off work. Tomorrow and Friday will do, so I can be take the time to be thankful for everything I hold dear. And so I can snap up some goodies on Black Friday... (that's for

That's Gross man

Blimey, is it Tuesday already? I received an email from Clare last week asking if I'd take part in a little game of hers. Sure thing, I said (always too quick to say yes and too nice to say no... it's an affliction). I was glad when she only asked me to provide two photos.

Silly women

Honestly, you women. Running around, daring to be happy and comfortable in your sexuality, wearing flattering clothes and flirting, yes FLIRTING, with members of the opposite sex. It's ridiculous, but tolerable. The limit is reached when you start drinking though. Honestly. You can't have everything, that's just greedy. Yes? No? I'm gobsmacked at the news

9rules Network

Back in April I mentioned that I was going to apply to join the 9rules network and my what a stooshie it caused: If people want to sell their souls to advertising or to networks, why not write for the paper press? The 9rules thing seems 180 degrees opposed to everything I love about blogging

Airport Express

Finally!!! Considering the amount of hassle I've had trying to setup and configure my new Airport Express, I've jotted down some information which I hope may be of use to others. I may end up waffling my way through this so, if you want, skip straight to the summary. Firstly some notes on my setup

Old songs say so much

Meme-like post ahoy! I've been on a musical voyage of re-discovery lately, digging through dusty CDs and uncovering some albums I'd forgotten about. Some, I'll happily admit, haven't really stood up against the ravages of time and my changing musical tastes; one Kevin McDermott Orchestra CD has worn so badly you can see through parts

The Brothers Grimm

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic Terry Gilliam has a certain way with imagery, you either love it or can't quite figure it out. For the most part I love it and this story, of the two young Grimm brothers and the supposed origin of their famous fairytales, is a perfect foil for

Who am I?

UPDATE: The idea for this post came from Lea Alcantara. I'll summarise your comments over the weekend and maybe even let you know why I asked. Maybe. Right, interaction time (stop groaning at the back). For reasons that I can't yet disclose (unless you're willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement? No, didn't think so) I
