Scotty the Cat, episode 2

Currently Scotty is crouched on my bed, frightened out of his tiny mind. It is of course Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night, and everyone who’s anyone (else) in the neighbourhood is currently setting off fireworks to celebrate the arrest of a man who 406 years ago today didn’t blow up the Houses of Parliament. I never …

Countdown to Australia: 3 weeks.

We’re moving to Australia on November 28, precisely three weeks from now. Every week leading up to that day (and on the day itself… providing the time allows for it) I’m gonna be releasing a short update video to my Vlog Channel. Here is the first. (Yes, it’s Tuesday now, I know. This post should’ve …

Facepalm.

Don’t you just hate it when you talk to someone and say something which you think sounds fairly inoffensive but gets either misinterpreted or misheard and they react in a very unpleasant manner that just seems to come out of nowhere and you can’t justify it because you haven’t the faintest idea how they interpreted …

Scotty the Cat, episode 3

Just a quick one this time, but it’s pretty significant. We finally know about Scotty’s actual owners. He was lifted from his regular hour-or-seven morning nap on my bed and taken to the vet this morning by my parents, on account of a swollen foot. We’d not seen how it had happened so we had …

Seeing this guy live tomorrow

Super excited. This guy‘s one of the funniest comedians I know. He’s definitely up there with Dara O Briain and possibly Billy Connolly. 😀 Also WordPress just said “dope” to me. Don’t you act like you’re cooler than me, you freakin’ blog.

Countdown to Australia: 2 weeks.

Second “Australia Countdown” video uploaded to my Vlog Channel. This one’s totally tardy but I explain why (kinda) in the video.

Make the nasty thing go away.

A few posts down I wrote how I accidentally offend people nearly all the time. It’s so terribly awkward and un-fun. I don’t try to be a bad guy, but it seems I just am. However, this time I’m just going to say what I think. I don’t care if you’re offended, because the issue …

Going to see the family for the last time

Tomorrow we’ll be heading down to Walton-on-Thames and Surrey (which is unfortunately a 3-hour car journey at the best of times) to see our relatives for the final time before we head out to Aus. It’s going to be emotional. I’m not looking forward to leaving everyone 9000 miles behind me. 150 miles (the distance …

Epic Song of the Week #8

This week’s Epic Song is “The Mob Rules” by Black Sabbath (Adrenaline Mob cover). Check it out on the ESotW page. — Last week’s ESotW was “America” by The Nice.

Quick Aus update

Just some really quick things pertaining to the Australia situation. We said our last goodbyes to the family a couple of days ago. It was a nice final reunion. We’ve sold one of our cars for a good price (but still lower than what we paid for it but that’s the nature of auctions, really). …
