Ok, I think this blog could do with a bump in readership. Now food, recipes and kitty cats improve the stats but I don’t like cats ( what? you had no idea? Hmmm … you must be new around here. )  So here are some simple recipes. I cannot promise you that these sandwiches are healthy, calorie-wise or otherwise good for you. I can tell you that these are good to eat, fast to make and as far as I know contain no lead, melamine, dog food or antibiotics. Without further ado, on with the list. (more…)

He’s a good friend to me, he is.
Wherever I go he goes before me.
In a public urinal when I go to piss
He alerts me to dally not, but pee
quickly and get the hell out. (more…)

Today is, according to WordPress, and WordPress should know, the exact day 5 years ago when The SloMan signed up at WordPress and stared at the screen thinking “What is this blog thing and how do you go about blogging?”
Since that day, 5 years ago, The SloMan has seen much activity. Over 2 years ago, he merged (more…)

Pride, Prejudice and Curiosity

A scene with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy after a swim in a lake is recognized as “one of the most unforgettable moments in British TV history”. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The words “Pride” and “Prejudice”, especially when joined with a non-contrasting conjunction are to a certain gender what, reportedly, catnip is to a feline. Some of those, personally known to me, have watched Colin Firth‘s D’Arcy in a wet t-shirt scene a few thousand times. Of course, people of all genders are simply fond of Jane Austen and count the story of Fitz and Liz as a great love story. (more…)

Jeepers! Peepers!

A small ground floor flat (apartment, if American) is what we loved in and lived in. As a newly married couple in our mid-twenties, we both worked for "computer companies" where we "did computers".

(We've been through this before, the flat / apartment thing,…

Over the past year this blog has seen quite a bit of activity. Averaging approximately a post a week, we've managed to talk about many a thing. And as we continue to dig into the statistics that WordPress has kindly provided, we are struck by the power of cats. Kittens, especially, are a big draw. The top three posts are in order: 1. Catty Rolls - which contained a picture of kittens and paragraph talking about my…

Ten Reasons why I blog

I’ve been blogging for a while. I don’t see blogging, yet, as an end in itself. So why do I blog? Here are my ten reasons why I blog, in no particular order.  #whyblog? 1. Boredom I started on the Microsoft blog site, I forget what it was called and it doesn’t exist anaymore anyway. That was late at night 7 or 8 years ago. Waiting for systems to quieten down at night so we could start…

It's mine!

BottledWorder is at it again - digging deep into the blogging experience and into the mind of the bloggist. http://bottledworder.com/2013/05/07/electronic-writing-and-the-numbers-game/ I did try the cute kitten trick and it definitely brought an uptick in traffic, so clearly the people have spoken! "Less coconut oil and more kittens" they say. Should I break down and stop writing my stories and commentaries on what moves me, annoys me, gives me cause for wonder and pause for thought? Or damn…
