People thing doing nothing is easy. Let me tell you it isn’t. It takes practice, sometimes years to perfect maximizing the nothing, and minimizing the thing. I spent three years at university doing such a thing, until save from the cafe across the road (literally) and the pub round the corner, all I needed was …

Everything was always about the start, as far as my P.E. teacher was concerned at secondary school. I forget his real name, but like all P.E. teachers, and probably most teachers in general he had a nickname; Fade. This was because (and remember this was the 80’s by the way) if we dared to forget …

How many times do you see people get the most terrible leaving presents. At a place I once worked, one of my (male) colleagues left to work nearer his home, and they bought him some tableware. This was a bloke who was well into six feet tall, lived in Barnsley and played bass in a …

It must have been the Sea, Sun, Sangria and what have you, but I once went to Mallorca on holiday and bought a watch. I say it must have been the aforementioned because I knew it wasn’t a real Tag Hauer one, on account of it being sold to me by a tall, dark, but …

I love getting something for free. Especially when its good. At various points in everyone’s life you get those occasions when luck smiles on you and something comes your way. It’s even better when it’s not expected. Like the time a friend of mine gave me a box of (with one or two exceptions) great …

At school, I always wanted to be part of a gang. For some reason, the school I went to was big on re-enactments. Not the English Civil War kind you see on banners as you drive through the countryside, but a sort of Quadraphenia Mods v Rockers sort of world. And when I say re-enactments, I …

I think I was about 13 or 14 when I discovered the ‘carry on’ films. I remember, I think maybe my mother was working late, and I happened upon it. I think in those simple days of four channels you could still find a good ‘carry on’  most nights, if you looked hard enough (altogether …

I’ve done a few things over the years that have absolutely terrified me, like asking a good friend of mine if she wanted to be more than that, in a bar full of drunken friends all cheering and jeering me on. After doing that I reckon I could face down a hungry lion with a …
