Have you ever wondered who was the very first person to laugh. How did it happen. Did the early humans laugh. And if they did laugh was it because they found something funny or was it a primal survival skill which had nothing to do with humour. Was laughter used as a warning like a... Continue Reading →
I may have to delete my blog after this... there's probably a less extreme solution, but I can't think of one at the moment. All I can think about right now is the fact that I exclaimed "Cha-cha-bing!" out loud with triumphant gusto after I'd finally managed to get the WordPress editor to embed the... Continue Reading →
Why does everyone keep insisting that today is Sunday? Because it is... but is it really? Well it does seem to really be a sunny day, which is nice after the windy downpour we had all day yesterday... I was just about to take the tarp off the ark. Someone asked me if I'd seen... Continue Reading →
Are you walking on sunshine? Do you make your own sunshine? Do you need some time in the sunshine? Ain't no sunshine when... it's night... unless you're looking at the moon, or the Space Station as it glides on by high up in the... Space, the final frontier... where the force may be with you,...

Imagine that you're almost at the end of a job interview and things have been going rather well, all the questions have been answered with professional expertise, the other person seems... Well, that's just it, that's what's bothering you... What if they're not who they seem to be? The interviewee has answered all the questions... Continue Reading →
The first one comes from 2017, but somehow slipped under my radar. In China, apparently, if you’re constipated, a traditional folk remedy is to insert an eel into your anus. This seems a bit radical to me, but what do I know? https://nobodysreadingme.wordpress.com/2012/11/22/this-is-a-government-health-warning/ Any road up, some 49 year old lamebrain in the Baiyun District […]...

Okay, maybe it's because I'm only talking to you in my head. Or because you're ignoring me, desperately trying not to hear me or even see me... was it something I said or didn't say? Or because there's so much chatter going on in your head that you can't hear anyone outside of your head.... Continue Reading →
Originally posted in March 2015. When I did this post, I only had edamame beans and coffee beans in the house so that's what I used... But there are so many different types of beans, and I kind of wish I'd had more and done more (typical human bean thought... why can you just be... Continue Reading →
. “That’s the big challenge of life—to chisel disappointment into wisdom so people respect you and you don’t annoy your friends with your whining.” ― Marc Maron .

Do you have a sense of what is fair and what is unfair? Do others agree with you about this? If they agree with you... is that fair? Let me put it another way, which may seem unfair as I may appear to be changing the rules or something like that... How does it feel... Continue Reading →
The other day I wrote a post about how blogs are people, how what you find on a blog reflects the person behind the blog who experiences all the ups, downs, and usual merry-go-round of being a human living life. I know that's obvious but sometimes the obvious gets obscured by... by what? By all... Continue Reading →
We, the people... shouldn't that be... We are people... ? because we are people, aren't we? and the 'the' just sounds like...

Just once... I'd like to answer one of the Daily Post's prompts properly... (maybe you wish I'd do that too... I don't know, I can't focus on your wishes when I'm too distracted by the flashing lights and blaring horns of mine) The me who wishes that isn't the me who writes my posts... so...

Before I launch into another long post where I talk all about myself, and verbally masturbate until I selfishly orgasm, I'd like to say... Thank you very much to the wonderful person who inspired this post, our conversations mean a lot to me... I'm not going to make you take the blogging stage, but if... Continue Reading →
. Ah... memories... What do you think people remember about you? Is it everything you'd hoped they'd remember about you or... is it everything you'd hoped they'd forget? People have a strange way of remembering what you want them to forget and of forgetting what you want them to remember... ...they feel the same way... Continue Reading →
Do you like being asked questions? Do you like answering questions? Depends on the questions, doesn't it? What if those questions are about getting to know yourself, and the answers you give reveal you to yourself in some way? . . You may have noticed that the last few posts on this blog have a...

I have spent countless (oops... that was almost a socially unacceptable typo - you figure it out) hours beating myself up for cringing sins, social faux-pas whiplash. You'd think a mortal would be more practical with their time, but this mortal is human, and humans only pretend to be practical with their time and everything... Continue Reading →
My levels of stupid are fairly healthy... compared to my levels of other things. In fact (yes, I used the word 'fact' on the internet cue the theme from Jaws...) being stupid is probably the healthiest aspect of me being me. I have a sweet spot for stupid me. She (yup, I'm messing with pronouns)... Continue Reading →
Since it's Capricorn season (not open season on Capricorn - which is all year round), I thought I'd have some fun (yes, Capricorns can do that thing known as having fun) and take some of the search terms in my blog's stats which people have asked their search engines to answer for them about Capricorn......

I've just been helping (more like hindering) a friend record the voices to characters in an animated short film. I'm voicing one of the characters... ruh roh!

The Devil's Rejects (2005) - written & directed by Rob Zombie (a Capricorn) . . Do Capricorns like silly people - is a search term which led someone to my blog. It made me chuckle so much that I decided to dedicate a post to it. It also made me intensely curious about what had... Continue Reading →
. . Sun Sign: Karmachameleon. Dates: Uncertain. You'll know if you're this sign or not. If you are this sign and know it, then you'll wish you didn't know it. This wish will make you become one of those people who dismiss things which don't support their version of reality and identity, by using 'facts'... Continue Reading →
What a talented artist in both drawing and wit!
Yes, I looked at the illustration for and read my sign first, and what I read made my soft teddy bear center reach out to hug a stranger and utter the words “There, there, it’ll all be fine!”… but then my soft teddy bear remembered that his arms were lopped off (like the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail) and he has not spoken for so long due to needing to bite his tongue to stop himself from screaming in pain that he’s forgotten how and the sound of his own voice saying something… mushy (and probably factually incorrect, I mean how do I know if it’s all going to be fine, should I be misleading someone like that with possibly pointless hope?)… might scare him back into hiding behind that hard exterior.
No idea why my inner teddy bear is a ‘he’… he just is a he.
The other signs are equally humorously insightful, the drawings are brilliant… and the disclaimers are hilarious!
Brilliant blog and artist!

Yay! It’s here! Final part to this series Part 3 is here!
I think I’m in the homestretch of recovery. This has been the worst bout of flu/fever I’ve had since last year. Lots of mucus in the back of my throat still, keep hacking, coughing and spitting like an old man every few minutes. Sexy, I know.
But enough about my bodily fluids! I know ya’ll clicked on the link to see a breakdown on the last 4 signs, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces! If any of you belong to these, thank you for your patience. Your roasting awaits 😀

A post full of giant… chuckles, laughs and other fluffy things which make you ache in a good way!
The news presented in the way… I wish all news sites would do it, because frankly I’m fed up of clicking on an interesting READ THIS NOW type of news headline only to find the article is just a rehash of a rehash of a rehash of ‘humans know nothing but think they know everything and panic about it on a daily end of the world basis’.
This is a news a la Doctor Who! Most excellent blog!
Thank you for sharing.
A misspoken word.
A reluctant glance.
A horde of slobbering rabbits.
Thanks to my training and experience, and several highlighted newspaper clippings sent in by concerned readers, I have painstakingly pieced together what I, as a member of the conservative media, believe is undeniable evidence that rabbits are planning to take over the world.
By radiating themselves and producing offspring roughly the size of Volkswagen Beatles.

My post yesterday was rather serious, as I was in a deeply contemplative mood.
