Some blogs I know

    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...

    One man's story, etc.....
  • Fat Man on a Keyboard
    'At first they came for the smokers but I did not speak out as I did not smoke. Then they came for the binge drinkers but I said nothing as I did not binge. Now they have an obesity strategy...'
  • New York Bike Blog
  • Belgian Waffle
    Prolific? Bien sur. Waffle? Not a bit of it. The best thing to come out of Belgium since Leffe Blonde, and that is saying something.
  • Non-working monkey
    'Why taking work seriously turns you into a cock', among other lifesavingly important career advice.
  • Razorblade of life
    'Not so much cutting-edge as half-cut and still sliding'...
  • blue cat
    This blue cat fellow (he writes for the telly you know) issues forth an apparently effortless stream of grade-A funniness that has me overcome in turns by helpless laughter and shameful, powerful envy. There I've said it.
  • Joella
    Joella in Oxfordshire. Working for The Man while training to be a plumber (I think!). Loves gherkins, hates aubergines... and Fascists.
  • Bushra
    Bushra's blog/ homepage/ call it what you want
  • Dubsteps (formerly Hobo Tread)
    Thoughts of Skif, a Havant and Waterlooville fan exiled in Liverpool- possibly the most engaging non-league football writing to be found on the web- and with a little bit of politics, and plenty more beside!
  • Tired Dad
    The Man Who Very Nearly Fell Asleep
  • troubled diva.
    Mike, the self-styled 'Fairy Godmother of British Blogging'. He got us all published in a book, you know...
  • Private Secret Diary
    Dispatches from deepest Norfolk. Not that private and not that secret. Just consistently hilarious.
  • The man who fell asleep; Sadness and ecstasy in unequal measures
    The book inspired by this veteran site (A Year in the life of The Man Who Fell Asleep) features the 'sarcastic polar bears of north London' among other oddities that the author manages somehow to render absolutely plausible.
  • Pete Ashton's Internet Presence
    Birmingham's finest. Writing with enviable clarity on every subject under the sun since 2000 (a very long time indeed!). Now with added nice pictures of canals and stuff...
  • Looby
    'An awkward, clumsy fellow; a lubber; a novice'....a venerated (if refreshingly irreverent) blogging institution. Lancaster's very finest!
  • RichardHerring.com
    The comedian Richard Herring's kind of online diary thing. Always worth a visit.

//the snake itself, who reveals it was attempting to make a break from the tedium of small-town life and start a new life in Droylsden.//

Made me laugh out loud in the office. Keep it up!

I'm also impressed with your seemingly boundless knowledge of local hostelries (though I would expect no less from a Geordie ;-)).


You've obviously been to Droylsden, Iain... next part of the match report should follow next week, although I can't promise too many details of the match itself as after the first four goals (and OK, after the first four pints of bitter) it all got a little hazy. I can remember quite a lot about the crowd, though, and may include an in-depth analysis of the pies...


Without wishing to upset any fans of Glossop who may be reading this, I think I'd actually rather have an in-depth analysis of the pies...


Great story, reading like our very own version of "the Far Corner" that you lent me whilst i recovered from a broken metatarsal (before it became the popular injury for todays premiership footballer).
Bring on the crowd and pie analysis.


Ha ha! Excellent stuff. This is going to be a ripping yarn, I can tell :)
