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.

Congratulations on the Post of the Week award! A worthy winner. No resting on your laurels, mind...

I hate that going-back-to-work-after-a-couple-of-weeks thing - passwords and names get me too, every time, usually resulting in bemusement from IT and strange looks from colleagues. Oh well. A dose of the flu has helped put off my return this year - might actually make it in tomorrow, when I'll have to overcome the usual mental hurdles with the added impediment of a malingering cold. Joy.

All the best to you, Charlotte and Frankie for 2009 - make sure you take it easy!


Happy New Year.
With Newcastle's forward line in the state it is, 2009 could even be the year your footballing career gets resurrected.
Even with that back you can't be any worse than Alan Smith.


Now that's what I like to see on a Friday night- a comment box full of Geordies. Someone should have got the Greggs pasties in.

Michael I would be careful about making disparaging comments about Alan Smith anywhere where Beth Girlonatrain may be listening... but yes I was not entirely downhearted to learn of the spiky-haired ones proposed exchange move to Middlesbrough. Just don't mention Shay Given and Man City in the same breath though, or I may well burst into tears...

Ben can I not just rest on my laurels a little bit? Five minutes even? Oh all right. All the best for 2009 to you and yours also...


Hurrah I'm one of tens! Here's hoping you are able to post more often. I know it's difficult for you to be so adventure and accident prone, but it's just so entertaining for the rest of us...


Not half as downhearted as Mido was when he heard about it. Just in case Beth happens by, can I hearby categorically state that I'd rather have a goalshy Yorkie than an overweight Boro reserve.
Man, what I'd give for a Greggs Cornish pasty.


I'm here and I'm watching!

Poor Smithy. He should never have left us you know. We loved him. No one else does.

Happy New Year...it still counts as new doesn't it? Even half way through January?


Eeeeeee, happy new year, wor jonathan and congratulations on your award!


Happy, er...slightly tarnished new year! Lovely that F found his presents so exciting...mine are just a teensy bit jaded about it, which is probably a function of how much stuff they're bought.

As to posting regularity...I think it's a question of quality rather than quantity. Every year that goes by I'm amazed that people still find time for this still slightly bizarre online activity, yet glad they do.
