Google is Watching You

In Interwebs, WTF

Call me naive, but I’ve always been fairly blasé about online privacy. Aside from not publishing any photos showing my face, I take no real steps towards hiding my identity. You could probably find out my entire life history—including past addresses, education and employment details—with… read full entry →

Oops, I Bought a Sofa


Went out today for cat litter, and somehow from there ended up doing McDonalds breakfast (ew, never again) and buying this: We only bought it so that we could spend the next several years making gags about sitting on Amelie, farting on Amelie, making babies… read full entry →

This Could All Go Horribly Wrong


Karl had a call from the estate agents/solicitors last week re: the house and they informed him that things are moving along swiftly and they expect us to be in by the end of the month. This month. May. Holy shit. But also, they said… read full entry →

House Hunting


Why did nobody warn me that this bloody house-hunting lark is hard work? When you’re looking at a rental property, there’s this little voice in the back of your mind reminding you that if the house or neighbourhood turns out to be a dump, then… read full entry →



It’s nearly April. Nearly fucking April you guys. Stop, life; I want to get off! Need to blog baby, house, pets, work, poo, shopping, reviews .. sooo behind. Drafts queue building, building. Free time dwindling, dwindling. La la la, in denial about state of mind.… read full entry →

Weird Driving Lesson Moment


I had to give way to a sofa today.

Thank you Google, you twat

In Geek, Interwebs, WTF

So, if you’d not noticed already, I converted my blog to WordPress yesterday. I know, I know, I told WordPress to suck my balls. Apparently things change, not least because of a half-dead install of Habari thanks to me installing an unstable night-release (don’t ask… read full entry →

Kim Kardashian; Tits or GTFO


This is Kim Kardashian: She thinks breastfeeding in public is only OK if you use a cover1 2 Riiiiight. Let’s just say I won’t be taking tips on modesty from her.

You Are a Fucking Twat

In Interwebs, WTF

Yes, you. Firstly, for this: …and then for the “I Don’t Support Breast Feeding in Public” Facebook group. But, let’s assume for one second that you’re simply an ill-educated fool who doesn’t have a clue about babies feeding, and break down every single word of… read full entry →

Sneaky Tactics: Making Adverts Look Like the Browser Part 2

In Geek, Interwebs, WTF

In 2008 I blogged about a site displaying adverts disguised as browser-style yellow bars and the risks associated with this shady tactic (especially if something a little more sinister than an advert were linked!) Clearly nothing has changed in the past 2 years, because it’s… read full entry →

No, I don’t want your shitty add-ons

In Geek, WTF

What the hell is it with software companies thinking it’s OK to bombard you with additional junk packaged up with their programs already? I finally got ’round to buying Windows 7 for my laptop (after finding it plain awesome on my AA1) so did the… read full entry →

You’re Fucking Kidding Me?


I was going through my stats earlier (as I do, several times a day, hah) when I came across Legion Training and Education Consultancy. No, I’m not planning on joining a foreign legion… the site is using tutorialtastic‘s layout and code — direct-linked files and… read full entry →
