Disclaimer: MWG had the TV on while I was watching this so I got distracted by the cheesiness of The Lizzie McGuire movie, so forgive me if this goes astray. On Sunday night, to celebrate my birthday MWG took me to a rather fancy hotel. It was four stars and probably the nicest place I've … Continue reading I’m a man, and I order Lemon and Herb
Like any rational person with a basic understanding of hygiene and germs, I don't like touching toilet flushes. I get why we need them, but imagining the other hands and what might have been on them touching the same handle is gross. So I applaud that anonymous genius who invented the hands free flush. You … Continue reading Awkward moments: Wet balls
Disclaimer: I'm writing this on Saturday, because I'm going to be away for a few days this week, so if anything massive happens between now and Tuesday, or a news story comes up that relates to this post, I apologize for it appearing tactless or like I'm ignoring a major event/story.

Unbelievable Over in Switzerland a shopping centre decided that instead of using the cliche of bunny girls in skimpy clothes for it's Easter promotion they'd use an actual bunny in underwear. Cue this rather daft photoshopping: It's a fairly harmless, goofy little advert. I mean, who's going to kick off about that? Well, it would … Continue reading News Grab Bag: Bunnies, Busts and Bedroom Blunders
I don't often by a newspaper. With the net there's not really any need, I can get the news from the BBC and Huffington Post, but I do occasionally pick up The i, sometimes even the Guardian. What I will not buy is the Sun. Or the Daily Mail, but let's focus on the Sun … Continue reading Too much, Sun
A while ago I wrote about my disbelief that 139 people would not only be shocked by Holly Willoughby's cleavage, let alone take the time out to lodge an official complaint. But it appears that people losing their head over the mere glimpse of some female flesh is a worldwide phenomenon, and that in Turkey … Continue reading People are idiots the world over.
I'm currently reading One Night In Turin by Pete Davies (previously known as All Played Out), a fascinating book about the 1990 World Cup focusing on the England team, it's a wonderfully written book and one of the lines that stood out for me was this one: Because at a football game you don't just … Continue reading Twelfth Man

I've got a love-hate relationship with the show Deal or No Deal- it's relentlessly addictive once you get going, but I don't like it because there's no skill or knowledge involved, and I think those are the game shows that work best, where the winners earn their prize (Countdown, University Challenge, Who Wants To Be … Continue reading Raw Deal
