T is for Traumatic tbh

Okay... let me explain. I was what you might call an intense child. Before reaching double didgets I was reading Shakespeare and Edgar Allen Poe, listened to classical music and opera, suffered from terrible OCD, wrote dark poetry and had an invisible friend who was a hit and run victim. I was basically Wednesday Adams. … Continue reading T is for Traumatic tbh

Is anyone else sick of the fake job ads?

Before I was dissed and covid-dismissed I worked at a large firm. In fact, a lot of little guys were and we were equally desposed of a la used Kleenex tissues in hayfever season. Quickly and without remorse. The last time layoffs of this magnitude had occurred at this firm it was 2008 during the … Continue reading Is anyone else sick of the fake job ads?

Cancel Culture

I’m really fed up of all this #CancelCulture It’s insane how quickly the social media masses will indignantly grab their torches and pitchforks and converge on a public figure to tear them from limb to limb. Run them off the internet. Cancel them. FINITO. Granted, if it comes to light that someone has committed a … Continue reading Cancel Culture

The Great Chocolate Biscuit Debate

The other day I was minding my business, Skyping with my parents and eating a Kit-Kat when Daddyo stops mid sentence and says “Wait, what are you doing to that biscuit?” This is not the first time I have been queried in disgusted tones regarding the way I am eating something chocolate covered. You see, … Continue reading The Great Chocolate Biscuit Debate

From hero to zero

When the pandemic happened many corporations closed their doors, but not before kicking out as many little guys that they possibly could. These, ironically, are the same big corporations who wax lyrical about sycophantic “pillar stones” of their businesses - pillar stones that include ‘Integrity,’ ‘honesty’ and ‘morality.’ Corporations who claim to “celebrate” the little … Continue reading From hero to zero

So… I started a BookTube Channel

I’m currently #safeathome with Mr Maybe - but over the past couple of weeks cabin fever has started to slowly settle in. Not for me obviously but Mr M isn’t suited for limited social interaction. While I’m happily pottering around planting a windowsill herb garden, testing cook book recipes and taking the opportunity to reorganise … Continue reading So… I started a BookTube Channel

You say hermit like it’s a bad thing…

With the current Cov-19 pandemic / London lockdown going on, it got me thinking about how many people are probably stuck inside around about now who might be bored and enjoy reading blog posts about stuff I have been meaning to write about. Only... I haven’t. Because procrastination is my own particular disease. So, how … Continue reading You say hermit like it’s a bad thing…

Wait… is that blood?

Back in New York my parents and I piled into a cab one morning on our way to brunch. We were zooming past Saks and laughing at tourists who looked exhausted, grumpy and were clearly making the error of walking absolutely everywhere... when I idly perused the inside of the cab to my left where … Continue reading Wait… is that blood?

The Subtle Art Of Having A Breakdown

Oh, Hi there. Long time no see. What have I been doing for the past seven months? Well, I’ve been perfecting the art of a french martini while splayed on the sofa covered by a gorgeous cashmere throw I found at a flea market and binge watching Garrett Watts videos on youtube. Because he is uncomplicated … Continue reading The Subtle Art Of Having A Breakdown

Getting into a right (Empire) State

To have a hope in hells chance of getting to the Empire State before the worst of the tourist crowds (to which I now belong) snaked around the building - we had to get up early. As luck would have it the time difference between London and New York made this horrific task a walk … Continue reading Getting into a right (Empire) State

New York, New York – a helluva town

I am in the fabulous United States of America. It only took a ten hour flight, vast quantities of bloody Mary's and the overpowering urge to escape from London to get me here. I have to tell you, the border security here is scary. They took fingerprints, a candid (and entirely unattractive) picture of me, … Continue reading New York, New York – a helluva town

Don’t call me Daddy

I had recently been procrastinating about an irritating cough that just wouldn't go away. It started as annoyingly persistent and turned into the sort of deep-in-the-chest cough you would expect to come out of someone like Brian Blessed. To the point that when people heard me cough they actually said “um…Are you okay?” The thing … Continue reading Don’t call me Daddy

Comic Con – spring 2019

I went to the spring Comic-Con recently. Growing up in the golden area before the mobile phone I'm grateful to have been able to develop as a human being without the pressures of Facebook, Instagram and snapchat dragging me into a bigger pit of body dysmorphia and self loathing. Instead of taking pictures of myself … Continue reading Comic Con – spring 2019
