The other month an old colleague messaged me on a social networking site asking about working together. I replied promptly, enthused and excited about this potential new collaboration.

I’m Sorry You Rode Into Me. Asshole.

sex and the city

The other day I was walking along the street on my way to the station in broad daylight when suddenly, from out of nowhere, this geezer on a bicycle rides INTO ME. Stop right there.

Happy Cringemas!


Christmas is just around the corner, which inevitably means work dos, crimbo dinners and festive parties. This usually involves having to be social with some people that you know less well than others, which combined with varying amounts of mulled wine and other tipples, can lead to some awkward situations.

…there’s always a but.


I’ve just started seeing someone new. He’s sweet, he’s nice, there’s none of these games that boys love to constantly play and it’s really damn easy.
