A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 31 – June 6

Oh, look, it’s that time of the year again when something is blooming and the mucous membranes in my face don’t like it so they go on strike, which makes me sneeze like I’m training for the Olympic sneezing team. It’s the time of the year when I hold my personal medicine appreciation week. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 31 – June 6

A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 17-23

Another busy week has just ended and with it several things such as Little C.’s school year and my driving lessons. It’s the end of a (short) era and the beginning of another. I like moments like this. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 17-23

I recently had a Eureka moment. Out of the blue, completely unexpectedly and with stunning suddenness I realised why so many people are afraid of “old age”, which these days seems to be thirty-two. Obviously, every Eureka moment must be shared publicly or it never happened so I’m sharing. Continue reading The Toxic List Effect

Work, work, work

I recently read Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix, who is now officially my new favourite writer and one of the many great things about this shamefully short novel was how he had incorporated one of the most notorious evil slogans in human history into his story.
