Grannies & Eggs

I came across this weeks ago and I’m just randomly finding myself still laughing at it… I guess it just has always amused me when self appointed experts don’t realise they’re in the same room as actual experts… I’ve not trawled the rest of the thread but I’m guessing Stephen King was classy enough to […]

Does He Exist?

One of the things or is it two of the things? Hmmm… Let’s go with something. Something I’ve noticed during lockdown is that people use phones less and ask questions more.

Tuning My Station

Since returning to working on the D.O. my habitat has somewhat spiralled into more chaos than usual… I’ve made a few attempts to rein it in and fake some kind of order… Or enough neatness to escape being labelled as a TV level hoarder… But it’s not easy… The house is always busy and mostly […]
