Archives for 2012


I went to Munich for a few days last week with my friend Kelly. Mostly it rained so thankfully there were plenty of indoor museums to do. But on the one sunny day we went to this awesome castle at Neuschwanstein in the Alps. Unfortunately one whole side of the castle was covered in scaffolding […]


Yesterday while I was out exploring I discovered this beautiful pink tree. Is it a cherry blossom? Maybe a tree scientist would know. Anyway, the tree was full of bees! Which is a bit of rarity these days I think. Tried to take some photos of them but unfortunately they don’t much like posing. Also […]


Some genius from the intertubes has invented a recipe for bacon milkshake!!! Me and friend Winni made some yesterday and it is tasty meaty goodness. Here are some action shots to go along with the recipe. First step: fry the bacon! Bacon is the most important ingredient. We used one whole pack. Put the ice […]


I’m so excited about Eurovision this year. Not only will it be hosted in the glorious nation of Azerbaijan, but our entry will be veteran crooner Engelbert Humperdinck! This could only be improved by him singing his classic hit Lesbian Seagull. …oh wait, it just got better.

Regular readers might have noticed that my adventurings have become less, err, adventurous of late with suspicious amounts of repetition. Well, I’ve decided that the Chilterns really are the optimal walking location in […]


So after having no real problems with my flat for over a year, a few days ago my landlord phones to say he’ll be in India until the end of the month. The following day I wake up and there’s no hot water. This is completely unreasonably unlucky and I wish to protest. Update: should […]

Best Feature

If you needed any convincing that Clementine is the best Linux music player since Amarok 1.4, here it is: Nyanalyser mode!


Another year so time for fresh adventuring. Yesterday I wandered through Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire to that far-flung outpost of the London Underground, Chorleywood: I had rather optimistically set off for Hemel Hempstead but I was hampered by the available daylight and my inability to estimate distances. Below are some pictures of the things I saw […]

Three Degrees of Separation

Just two people separate me from both President Obama and Sarah Palin on LinkedIn. Well chuffed.
