Some blogs I know

    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.

December 30, 2011



What a splendidly surreal way to spend Boxing Day proving once again that you can take the boy out of Newcastle but you can't take
Newcastle out of the boy.

Uncle Mark

A Quixotic Quest culminates in a triumphant conclusion for our wandering Everyman. This lacks only mention of 'A Pie' to be considered high art, and the Author can expect a call from Speilberg* very soon unless I am much mistaken.

* That's Arty Speilberg. Does a very nice Steak and Kidney on Gosforth High Street.

Me love that. Irey man.


Eeeee I'm glad you didn't have to resort to your posh vicar accent, very convincing though it is!


Abby- I was indeed silently practicing my posh vicar accent in case it was needed at the Reebok ticket office, as you know it has a 100% success rate, although admittedly it has only been called into action on the one occasion and that was one afternoon on the phone from the flange desk when I used it to illicitly obtain tickets for the home end for a cup tie at Blackburn Rovers. It turned out I was in the company of 5000 other posh Geordie vicars, but that's another story...

John S/ Irey Man thank you very much (I have been trying to work out 'Irey Man' all week to no avail, it will come to me in a flash...)

Uncle Mark- Spielberg doesn't seem to have been in touch yet although in his defence my phone was out of charge for a while yesterday... yes that will be it. I'll give him another week.

Izzy/ Me Mam- Hope I didn't scare you too much by texting from the post-match Wanderers supporters bus- I'm sure you had visions of me being lynched by glum Lancastrians who had rumbled my posh vicar 'neutral supporter' accent! I lived to tell the tale as you can see (and actually, as I know there is at least one Wanderers fan who reads this- hello Warren- I should say the home fans I came across were unfailingly friendly..)


That's £31 very well spent in my opinion.
