An eclectic collection of trivia, observation, cynicism, wit....
and the occasional rant.
Enjoy!

I'm Mark. Older than you imagine, pescetarian, husband, father, professional parent & pedant.

I post some original stuff and a bunch of other things that I like. If you own the rights to something you see here and you're not happy about me sharing it, let me know.
Hot stuff!
New batch just arrived of possibly the best pickles I’ve ever tasted, from Ouse Valley Foods.

Theoretically, you’re still allowed to do this. Imagine the chaos (and the carnage) if you tried.

I just sat in traffic for over three hours and missed my favourite band in the entire world.

My Princess was looking forward to this so much. You don’t think about checking the traffic news when you’re only going one junction on the motorway to the next town. Sadly, there was a fatal accident and the motorway was blocked whilst the emergency services did their work. The resultant jam meant my Princess was sat in traffic for three hours, when she should have been at the gig in London. It was one of only four dates that Brand New are playing in the UK this year.

She’s absolutely gutted & I really feel for her.

Hey everyone. I know this is Sybil’s blog but I just wanted to introduce myself. After a week of deliberation, my humans have finally named me Watson. I just wanted to come by and say that no matter what Sybil tells you, we actually SHARE a bed. She keeps saying I’ve stolen this and stolen that. I’ve even “stolen” her stupid purple collar. It has a bell on it so the humans don’t tread on me, but I’m not convinced about the colour. Still, it’s not HER collar. It wouldn’t even fit around her neck. I’m not even sure if she has a neck? She’ll probably say I stole that too.
