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

Just realised I’m closer to 25 than 20. Oh dear.

It’s a beautiful morning.
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.
