Pills that make you poop glitter…

Oh my! We should give these to ALL the pigeons in London until the whole city is a sparkly rainbow! Granted we'd be covered in shit, but what a talking point. People would come for miles to see Big Ben how it is now... a shimmering beacon of birdy-poopy perfection, compared to how it was = BORING. I know they say not to eat these pills that make you poop glitter, but oh, oh, oh, I want to know. I...Read More

Why ex-travellers are not always the best employees…

Speaking from personal experience, it can be hard coming back from an extensive period of travelling and trying to get a job. Travellers might be cultured, open-minded, used to acting on initiative and great in a blackout thanks to months of sitting round campfires playing guitar, but they're also a free spirited bunch unused to deadlines and rules. They will never be on time Time had no meaning on their meaningful journey and an ex-traveller has been well-taught that the...Read More

London tube strike VS ghost face in Dorset waves…

While everyone is banging on about tube strikes in London, the Gods of the Ocean are striking back themselves down south. Check out Poseidon here taking a look at Lyme Regis before he gets all tsunami on it... Imagine standing with your Spaniel on the seafront looking at that! I don't know whether this has been enhanced... well, OK it probably has but when photographer Simon Emmett shot this yesterday it must have had some eerie quality in order for someone...Read More

Don’t date a girl who travels…

A friend just sent me this and I had to share! Some of it rings so true... or did, up until a few months ago I guess. Yes I have battle scars from wars with bugs and coral, no I don't wear a watch, yeah I bug people to book plane tickets and run away with me, and yeah, I detest the thought of working for someone else's dream... but it's not all true (ahem). The point is, if you're...Read More

Why I’m annoyed about fines to take kids out of school. And I’m not even a parent…

Now… I don’t have children, but I’d like to say that reading all these news reports about these new laws, saying parents can’t take their kids out of school for a holiday now unless they’re willing to pay a fine are really upsetting me. Just last week a British couple were fined £1,300 for taking their children to the Greek island of Rhodes for a week during term time. That’s probably more than the holiday cost! New rules state that...Read More

Ever thought about cheese therapy? L’Art du Fromage can save your life…

Sick with a sore throat and sniffles – the result of clutching one too many grubby tube poles back here in London me-thinks – I was taken on a surprise dinner date tonight. I knew nothing of where we were headed until we got there. And then I practically threw up in excitement. A fucking CHEESE RESTAURANT in London. A restaurant that serves only cheese. Only in my wildest dreams does such a thing exist… or, it did, until we...Read More
