Some blogs I know

  • Freckles and Doubt
    Considering her mastery of narrative structure etc. (insert narrative structure here.....)
  • Trailer Park Refugee | just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight….
    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...
  • Exile on Pain Street | Straddling the Hudson River. One foot in NYC, the other in suburban New Jersey.
    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.

If you can guarantee Don Revie I'm coming!!
I've never played carpet bowls before.


Well Beth, that is by far the best obscure Don Revie reference anyone has ever left in my comment box! I am afraid however, that according to latest rumours, Mr Revie has been lured away by the offer of a lucrative coaching contract in Saudi Arabia and we will never hear from him again. With the tabloids reporting Curly being treated in a celebrity detox clinic for an addiction to Danish Pastries, the smart money is now on Pope Benedict XVI- and with the arch-conservative Pontiff known to favour a tough stance on gentle indoor pastimes popularised by 1970s England squad players, Vatican insiders rate the chances of a game carpet bowls on Piccadilly Gardens as 'slim at best'. A nice couple of rounds of cribbage, on the other hand, remain a distinct possibility.


...he he he
(or however you do that thing that represents sniggering)

I knew it wouldn't be too obscure for you though - enjoy the pastries!


Please give us a full account of the meeting.
Pity abt the weather.

hiya Jonathan, how are you? I had a bit of a hangover the following day but all is well now.


How did the Blogmeet go. I saw your post on friday night but having just come back from a 3 day conference i couldn't face the prospect of further drinking/talking/

Is there any plans to have another one?
