  • We Hate You

    We Hate You

    That title is slightly disingenuous, until you get to the last paragraph. This is a MUG OF FUCKING AWESOME ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ pic.twitter.com/noPQ79htRB — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah ๐Ÿ“ Shonky Hankering ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) October 26, 2018 I utterly love personally-made gifts. Not only are they far less likely to be contributing to global warming, but they indicate a level […]

  • The Old Songs :: Two

    The Old Songs :: Two

    Okay, I’m back at a PC: I took a tablet with me across the weekend, but there was simply not enough time to write. Honestly, the last three days have been more packed than has been the case for MONTHS… and I want to make sure I get it all recorded before memories fade. Therefore, […]

  • Save Me

    Save Me

    I’ve been thinking about the sonographer yesterday probably more than I should, trying to work out what it was I sensed from him, and there’s one word I keep coming back to: irritation. This is one of those moments where I wish I’d had someone else with me, so I could check if I read […]

  • Good Night

    Good Night

    Something interesting happened to my Fitbit in the week, which I think is worth discussing this morning. My Blaze now utilises its own heart rate monitor to show me what kind of sleep I’m getting. There’s been the ability for a while to ‘track’ how long you sleep using the internal accelerometer, but many people […]

  • Don’t Sweat the Technique

    Don’t Sweat the Technique

    I have a very bad short-term memory. It’s always been that way, for as long as I can remember (badum-tish) and what this leads to is a fair amount of repetition in daily life. I’m also a great sufferer of inertia, that my brain can get caught in cycles of ‘I’ll do that in a […]

And people are not united." #Tucker pic.twitter.com/QNFr4cY996 — Fox News (@FoxNews) March 23, 2017 Rupert Murdoch’s been around a long time. He’s a shrewd businessman and his media empire is, like it or not, as much a part of my ongoing existence as the three […]

  • Confusion the Waitress

    Confusion the Waitress

    Monday, it must be said, seems a very long way away. It didn’t help this week that I’ve not had a regular PT session, that my son spent Monday and Tuesday at home, that I spoke to a Therapist on Wednesday and yesterday went outside for longer on my own than I have been for […]

  • The Dawning of a New Day

    The Dawning of a New Day

    Honesty in my life is becoming a rather big deal. As you’ll see in an unscheduled Writing post on the other site, finding trustworthy people in this great big pile of social media shit can be, on any given day, a rather fraught affair. Everybody it seems is out to make their own fortune in […]

  • New Sensation

    New Sensation

    I’m involving myself in a number of new things this week, allowing creativity to mix with a bit of risk taking. The first one of these is writing for an aggregation service, for want of a better term, that pays me on a per click basis. I know that I’m initially making nothing on this, […]
