What a year..

When I was fifteen I came across this little expression from a book of quotations; “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”   Rumi I had no idea who Rumi was and as I was fifteen (and knew […]

Walk like an Egyptian? Australian?

It’s Sunday evening on the 30th January, 2011 and I have about a weeks worth of annual leave to take before the end of March, and for a couple of weeks now I’ve been thinking of spending from the 8th to the 14th of February in Egypt. However, I’ve just watched the news this evening […]

What’s in a (sur)name?

I was thinking the other day about surnames. A friend of mine, who has no sons, bemoaned the fact ( a number of years ago) that his name ‘Messervy’ will be dying out with him – it’s an old French name and he can trace his family tree back to the time when the Normans […]

More Crimes and Misdemeanours

More crimes I’m afraid. When I was 25 I shaved off half my friend’s moustache. It was punishment as (a) he was unconscious after drinking all my booze on holiday plus (b) he had booked us a hotel room in Turkey right beside those huge effing speakers the faithful are called to prayer with at […]

Word of the day: Moist.

Working with a load of Geeks can be a challenge at times, one, I should mention, I am always willing to sink down to..  We play games occasionally, one game involves inserting today’s ‘childish word of the day’ into a conversation with a Muggle (non-geek [non-magical] staff). But a few years ago the word was […]

Meeting The Dreaded Parents..

  You need to read this with a very upper class English accent.. Years ago I went to a girlfriends parents house for the dreaded first meeting but this family was very posh and I was warned on pain of death that I had to be on best behaviour. So Sunday comes, we drive down […]

Miss Nottinghill Park

When I started this whole t’inkernet dating malarkey I was very fussy about whom I emailed but after a few weeks (months) of no-one responding to my emails I decided to go to the opposite extreme and made it a rule that no matter how inappropriate (or mad) someone seemed I would chat away with […]

A load of balls

When I was working on A&E (ER) as a nurse, we had this bloke come in unconscious and naked, he was found by his flatmate who called the ambulance. We checked him over and he had a huge bash on the top of his head (he was bald) but rather unusually he had scratch marks […]

Walking the tightrope

It’s Friday evening and one shouldn’t blog when inebriated but bugger it. In the game of life, one of the things I really appreciate is – being a man, we seem to have got a better deal than woman, at least in a few respects; I can count the amount of times I’ve had to […]
