Christmas Shopping – The Ultimate Guide

Step 1 - Don’t fucking bother. Why put yourself through it? Stay at home, put your feet up and become a Scientologist or a Jedi Knight for the Christmas period, that way you don’t even have to celebrate it. Ah, if only, eh? If, like me, you don’t have the luxury of ditching the shopping, … Continue reading Christmas Shopping – The Ultimate Guide

Like An Idiot Misses The Point

‘I still miss you’ Did you think of anyone while you read that sentence? Did a particular person come straight into your head? Do you have that one person from your past that you still miss? I don’t mean obsess over or constantly crave like a junkie tweaking for their next fix, but just someone … Continue reading Like An Idiot Misses The Point

Here Lies This Conversation….

‘The art of conversation is dead’. Usually what people mean when they say this is that because most interactions are done digitally these days, people don’t seem to be able to hold a halfway decent conversation anymore. Everything is abbreviated, people don’t converse; they just say ‘k’ or ‘lol’ and tag each other in memes … Continue reading Here Lies This Conversation….

Fact Friday!

Everyone loves a good fact, don’t they? Well, I do, anyway. A couple of months ago, on a Friday night, my mate told me a fact that I found totally fascinating (I didn’t believe him at first, but good old Google verified it. Yes, he was smug as fuck) and because it was a Friday … Continue reading Fact Friday!

‘Where we’re going, we don’t need roads’

Picture the scene - you’re sitting in the DeLorean, the time circuits are on, the flux capacitor is running, Mr Fusion has been filled with egg shells and banana skins (I figured I’d go with the Back to the Future 2 DeLorean because where the fuck are we supposed to get plutonium from, eh?), you … Continue reading ‘Where we’re going, we don’t need roads’

Kids Say The Darndest Things….

So, my son (Osian) is 7 years old and, even if I do say so myself, pretty clever for his age. I am currently in the process of getting him diagnosed with Aspergers and he has lots of quirks and obsessions. Over the years though, he has come out with some of the maddest things … Continue reading Kids Say The Darndest Things….

Love is just a four letter word, but, then again, so is cunt!

‘Tell people you love them before it’s too late’ This is a saying that you hear all the time. People say that you need to tell the people you care about how much they mean to you while you still have a chance to. Fuck, I’ve even said it myself. The inference being that someone … Continue reading Love is just a four letter word, but, then again, so is cunt!

Taking A Dim View

This is my attempt at personification, which means giving inanimate objects a physical presence. The setting I’m going to use is the view from my bedroom window. It’s a bit of a weird one for me, so feel free to skip it. I’m just trying to broaden my range a bit and develop different areas … Continue reading Taking A Dim View

Poetry or not poetry? That is the question.

About six months ago I wanted to try something that I had been calling ‘poetic prose’, which I had seen on Instagram. I don’t know what the literary term for the style actually is, but I often find that in the absence of knowledge, making stuff up as you go along will do the job. … Continue reading Poetry or not poetry? That is the question.

Do our achievements define who we are? Dear god, I hope not!

Does it matter at what age you achieve certain things? What if you never achieve them? Does it matter if you haven’t had kids by your 30s? Or if you’re in your 40s and you haven’t had a promotion at your job? Is age just a number? Well, I don’t know about it being just … Continue reading Do our achievements define who we are? Dear god, I hope not!
