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.

proof that some things are worth waiting for!!

(did you put all that on the insurance claim?)

Ben

The game was great for the first half and incredibly fraught and nervy in the second. Still, a far more enjoyable evening's entertainment than being dangled down your own chimney in pursuit of a deaf dog...

MQ

Wow - one of your best for a long time, JB! All the funniest things happen to you... who's the neighbour, by the way, and have you mentioned the costs you incurred on his behalf?

abby

Eeee, I heard that the incident did wonders for your bad back -- could it be true that you have taken the terrier cure after all that money wasted on acupuncture?

Tim

Well, at least not a case of drop the dead dog-(Ga)ry!

Northern lads don't change I see.
Z sent me - nice one!

Penny

Z sent me, too.

Fantastic! Had a Great laugh!!

Ilona

There were probably easier ways for Charlotte to get that bedroom reno, but few more effective.

Hello and welcome friends of Z.. come in and make yourselves at home, there's a tray of mince pies somewhere and a couple of cans of Polish lager.

I know you're all dying to know who the almost-famous actor is but I'm going to stay tight-lipped about that (at least until he's a properly famous Hollywood superstar and I can really dine out on the story). In the meantime you can type in 'nearly famous actor who lives in Levenshulme with deaf dog' into google and see how you get on. If you end up back here mind then don't say I didn't warn you...

What I will say is that the thespian in question has proved to be a stand-up guy and the matter has been resolved without recourse to insurance firms, a shame in a way as I was looking forward to starring in one of those 'We won't make a drama out of a crisis' TV ads...

looby

Oh Lord, that was funny. I like it when you tell stories - you always take time to tell them properly.

The only remaining piece of the puzzle for me is how exactly you managed to lose your underpants and presumably ended up with a sooty todger.
