Merry Christmas, all a’ y’all!

This Christmas has been a strange one for me, mainly because it feels like we’vee not actually been celebrating it at the right time this year. For example, everyone knows how much the traditionals Christmas hymns and carols refer to the dark nights and snowy winter weather. Over here, it’s been about 35ΒΊC. Yet this …

Phew, that was a close one

So, the mortgage company have apparently decided to finally withdraw their heads from their sphincters. The house has officially sold and the money is now in our laps. Everyone’s a happy bunny now. More or less. πŸ˜€

Scotty the Cat, episode 4 – the final chapter

Scotty is now terrified of our house. The number of empty rooms and cardboard boxes left lying around the place has made him freak out a little bit, and he can’t stand the sound or even the threat of cardboard boxes being moved around. I think it might be because he loves climbing in and …

Seeing this guy live tomorrow

Scotty the Cat, episode 3

I never …

This will be what you see when 2012 arrives – my current graphic (for my 2011 videos) actually uses as its background an abstract wallpaper design by someone else (so it’s somewhat unoriginal), whereas this one uses a photo of an …

Obsessive-compulsive webpage-reloading disorder: A diagnosis

I realize I’m now in the advanced stages of obsessive-compulsive webpage-reloading disorder. An unfortunate condition, in which the afflicted slowly but surely loses track of the concept of time over a twelve-hour period. I have compiled my study on this condition (and my subsequent findings) into this post. The ordeal begins early in the day, …

Scotty the Cat, episode 1

Look at him. Look at that adorable little furry bastard. Pictured: Pure evil He’s the most lovable, friendliest, ginger-blonde pussy cat with a tendency to roll down stairs and obsession with being a ninja I’ve ever laid eyes upon. But right now I think I have a justifiable excuse to hate him with every fibre …
