Some blogs I know

    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...

    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.

Ooh, Bordeaux. One of my favourite cities - a triumph of good Town Planning. And with proper weather. You sound like you had a lovely time...


They certainly know how to fashion themselves a Boulevard, ISBW. Apparently it was all down to a fellow named Haussman (I think that's right) who honed his European-style town planning skills on Bordeaux before making a name for himself in Paris (or was it the other way round?) Well as you can see I should really have taken more notice of all those glossy brochures that were spread tastefully across the coffee tables of our ridiculously bijou apartment, we're just going to have to go back at the earliest possible opportunity and do the whole thing again..


eeeee, I want to go to Bourdeaux at once! Now is it true that you actually slowcook everything at the moment due to having no cooker?


It was true, but we have now bought an actual real-life brand-new oven, from the store (it's more an institution really) by Southern Cemetery which connoisseurs of white goods speak of in reverend hushed tones on account of how they have counted stars of Coronation Street as their most regular customers, or at least that's what they tell you. Not only that but it has a light in (the light on the old one hadn't worked since 2002) so we don't really need the telly any more as we are quite happy watching our scones rise. I think it's called 'making your own entertainment'.
