A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 24-30

Tonight on PLBW: Irina braves a mountain and her healthy respect of heights and lives to survive another seven days of heat.

A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 27 – August 2

My least favourite month has started and I apologise to all who happen to have been born in August. I’m sure you’re all lovely people but I have a thing for August and it is not a good thing. And I have good reasons for it, including three incidents that required urgent medical attention and two deaths. Suffice it to say I don’t expect anything good from August. But you never know.

Sit-Down Comedy: Lost

Remember when I said I was considering a career change into stand-up comedy after I told a number of people about how I got lost in Italy? It’s all right if you don’t, I just said it again. Only stand-up is not an option because I don’t have a stage to stand up on, so I’ll be doing it sitting down, in writing. Continue reading Sit-Down Comedy: Lost
