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.

June 28, 2006



Love the idea of you frantically consulting the dictionary while consoling yourself that Greer, Paulin etc can't see you doing it...

Greggs pasties - now you're talking. I look forward to a whole post on the delights of the steak bake...


John and I actually fell for the cheap electricity scam a couple of years ago. I thought it was a Queens thing! Are Levenshulme's European plazas not safe from corrupting influences?


There's something in the water this week, because Girlonatrain has been all comtemplative as well lately - but with an economy of expression that I'd find impossible.

I know what you mean about the World Cup. I've been pacing the room for the last hour making girlf feel nervous, as I'm suffering the same withdrawl symptoms. We could be in a triple World War with nuclear weapons heading at us from North Korea, Iran and Pakistan simultaneously for all I know, but I'd know less about that than whether Hargreaves will start on the left against Portugal, or reaction in Stockholm to Sweden's defeat to Germany from those fascinating little bits the Guardian translates from foreign papers.

And tomorrow, when it all starts again, I'm working from 12 till 11. Bum!


Yes, Girlonatrain is keeping us all guessing there... perhaps Beth's fascinatingly cryptic series of posts will be featured on Newsnight Review tomorrow night and Tom Paulin will explain to us what they are all about. Although I must say I am quite enjoying the uncertainty and suspense in the meantime...

As for Hargreaves on the left- well I suppose he has played everywhere else, and Sven is clearly making it all up as he goes along so I can't see why we shouldn't. I'd keep Carrick in the middle alongside Gerrard, drop the big wheezing girl's blouse Lampard to the bench, and bring back Crouch to spearhead a 4-4-2 alongside the boy Rooney. Although of course if you ask me again tomorrow I will tell you something entirely different.


I was going to leave a comment.

But I think a respectful silence is probably best just now.
