Did You Just Lick My Face?

Get this.  I’m hanging. Badly. REALLY BADLY. I know, right?  This is the perfect counter-balance to my last post declaring alcohol is the devil – link here I woke up on this Thursday morning without an alarm, it was around 7am, I had about 1.4 blissful seconds of feeling great. Then it hit me. Light…

Wine or Wisdom?

Last week I published a post denouncing alcohol, stating my intention to remove it from my diet (link here).  Struck down with a crappy cold, I had a good reason to stay in on the weekend and avoid the temptation.  I sold the ticket I had for a warehouse rave on Saturday, and instead opted…

Bring It All Back To You

I was quietly singing the lyrics to ‘Bring It All Back’ whilst sat at my desk in the office yesterday afternoon, when, half way through the second chorus, one of my colleagues laughed a laugh of disbelief at my preposterous behaviour.  Towards the end of the third verse another colleague mentioned that they were worried…

Unlucky, But Plucky, In Love

A topic of conversation came up whilst I was on a date last week.  It popped into my head again three days ago as I ran along the beach.  In the spirit of this blog I thought I’d write about it and see what came out.  Welcome back to my inner workings… This has been…

Momentum

I awoke in bed this morning, unable to get back to sleep.  It felt early, I guessed at 5am.  I checked my phone, saw that it was 5.30am.  I put my phone down and closed my eyes, but it was no use, sleep wasn’t coming back to me.  I needed a wee, but I was…

Walk on Fire, or Wimp Out?

A whole bunch of you have contacted me following Monday’s post, demanding the next piece, so look, you greedy gulls, I slogged away getting the next bit written up – here it is. Drink the freakin kool-aid. BUT WAIT! Before you read any further, you absolutely have to watch this.  Watch this and witness the…

He Might Well Be My Guru

OH. MY.  F***ING. GOD.  How the hell do I start this piece, when there is so much to write, and manage to do justice to the weekend I’ve just had? By saying “YES”, and getting the fuck on with it. (warning there will be a lot of swear words in this post.  I’m in that…

The Evil Stepmother is Dead! Bachie Review pt.2

THE EVIL STEPMOTHER IS DEAD.  Her dastardly sidekicks are gone too. Good prevails over evil!  Hope conquers despair.  The righteous reign supreme!  CINDERELLA SHALL GO TO THE BALL! That’s right, I came home from work and cooked up a prawn and vegetable stir fry, with tamarind, coriander, fish sauce and chilli.  The prawns were wild…

Ten-Nil! Oh… Tenille? Ohhhhh Tenille.

Can someone explain the name Tenille to me?  Scrap that. Googled it.  Means ‘light’, and is of Celtic or African origins. Celtic and African – pretty closely related cultures those… How? What are the hell are you talking about, Chris? Well, I got back from the gym tonight, cooked up some fish and veggies, switched…
