A Little Off The Top Please, Barber

Doesn’t it just drag your butt when you read something and it sticks with you for so long that you have to respond to it at some point in the vain hope that it will get it out of your system. Well, that is what has happened to me over the past couple of weeks ever since I read this most excellent post by Holley Perry over at ChasingDestino  – Reading that post urged me to comment and if you click this link  it will take you to the comment that I made. Well, that comment has stuck with me ever since and has now forced me to write this. Continue reading

This Was The Mug I Was Looking For

In my last post I touched on my smoking addiction, whilst that is my most unhealthy addiction it is not the one that will probably kill me first. The one that will get me first is the addiction to MUGS. I love ’em. If I find a quirky mug, I must have it. I have boxes full of mugs that I will probably never use again, but I can’t get rid of them because they are my babies. My problem is though, if I keep buying them the rest of my family is going to either keep the mugs and kick me out or just shank me with one of my own mugs!

I took delivery today of my latest addition. I wouldn’t have known about this if my wonderful wife hadn’t shown me her Facebook time-line yesterday, but she slipped up and I saw this and had to have something similar. So here I present to you – The Mug I Was Looking For:

A Mug is the design of Star Wars StormTroper

The Force is Strong With This Mug

The upside to my collection is that I get to use these cool things to.. the downside.. more washing up. It’s a trade-off

Until next time…

I Am Addicted

(Read that post title to the tune John Bunyan’s “To Be A Pilgrim” – not that it has a bloody thing to do with this post)

Just over three weeks ago I went to the Doctors to keep a self made promise I made to my Mum. I am the kind of person who likes to try and keep his promises where ever possible, but sometimes I over egg the pudding, and occasionally I let my gob get in the way of common sense and offer more than I can deliver. This is one of those time, folks.

They'll Kill ya Folks

They’ll Kill ya Folks

Without airing everyone’s granny pants to the world, its’ time for me to give up smoking for the benefit of everyone in the household. To be supportive to Mum who has had to give up over night and has done it cold turkey and has been smoke free for close to 100 days,. For me health wise, I am getting no younger and with that natural health problems are just hastened on with adding cigarettes to the mix. Then there is the financial side to the whole thing,, it’s bloody expensive. Continue reading

Erasing The Doctor

If I was to ask you what sprang to mind when I said the words “Doctor Who”, you, depending on which Doctor was “your” Doctor could possibly answer:

Bow-ties are cool!
Really Long Scarf’s!
Celery in the Lapel
Weeping Angels
TARDIS

It could be a list a mile long.

For me though it changes on a daily basis. I don’t really have a 100% firm MY Doctor… IF I am pinned down to just ONE, then it would probably have to be David Tennant. I found his performance to be everything I wanted from a Doctor, but to be honest, every Actor that has portrayed the great medic has something that the others just haven’t and makes them unique and MY Doctor whilst I am watching that story.
