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.

eeee, welcome back, man...I suspect your Welsh travel writings are probably, at this moment, being discussed in heated conference rooms by teams of famous anthropologists and linguists. I like the frothy coffee bit the best!

Ben

I love that Welsh thing of taking English words and "Welshifying" them by changing one letter, or lopping it off. Eg "theatr", "sinema"...

jonathan

You know, the whole time I was writing that Welsh stuff I had clean forgotten that one of my most long-standing and regular commenters was stationed right there in the capital- just the other side from our holiday house of 'Y contraflo', as the natives quite unaccountably don't call it.

Hey and while we're on the subject of Geordies exiled in The Principality, can we just raise a late-night glass of something Welsh to Whitley Bay's finest, Michael 'Hammer of the Mackems' Chopra. The lad's faraway exploits are almost enough to make up for Newcastle's floundering form on their own... in fact I'm seriously considering emigrating myself to get a closer view.

Oh, anyone who doesn't know what I am on about can follow the link to Niall and Biffa's one and only nufc.com.. it's over there on the left man...

Ben

Oh yes, Jonathan - I raised a glass to Chops. And another one to last night's very unexpected but very welcome win in Sicily.
