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.

You don't come very often, but when you do...

Anyway, enough of my memories of things old girlfriends have said to me -- I'm glad to see you and Frankie have arranged walks that pivot of the right balance for both of you. I thoroughly enjoy country walks.

A few months ago me and Trina tramped across the rock-strewn car park surrounding The Patten Arms, a distance of about twenty feet, bravely kicking away stones of up to an inch in diameter, hampered by a faint drizzle, or Trina's plosive consonants, I couldn't quite tell.

Anyway it's a pleasure as always Jonathan. You always post something delightful just as I'm thinking "I'll scratch that lazy bastard off my blogroll."


Ha! Given what I know of your well-documented views on the practice of hiking Looby, I suspect that the task of negotiating a 'Third Way' excursion that me, you and Frankie could all sign up to might prove a totter along the crevice/ through the pub carpark too far (although I imagine at least two us of could see our way clear to the pints of Purple Moose Ale).

And I know- not here often enough, at all! I do have tremendously good intentions to do something about that as it pains me to see Crinklybee so sparsely updated, but let's not make any rash promises... in the meantime, thank you for your continuing comment box loyalty- if I ever fell off your blogroll it would feel like the online equivalent of plunging into hell's crevice, ie not an ideal day out at all...


... oh- and link to Frankie's astonishingly technically accomplished YouTube account of the day- now added. A recommended view!


Super, a most professional video. A future in epic mountaineering films beckons I'm sure!
