And….scene

  Ahem…*taps mic* is this thing on?    I have an announcement to make: I’m moving back to England.    This Brit is fleeing to the homeland y’all.    There was a time when I never thought I’d say that. But I’ve come to realise, as it turns out, homesickness is a pretty darn hard...

Should I Stay or Should I go?

  That is a question I struggle with every now and then. Having moved around so much, my compass is all the way off these days. I don’t know where home is and I have an urge to just keep moving and trying out other cities, countries, places. Yet I also crave stability and focus...

Stop Talking Funny

  So that’s quite the temper Christian Bale has, eh? I have been known to completely lose my shit when someone walks into my field of vision too. I mean, really, it’s so rude for people to be in my presence and be doing their job with complete disregard for my over-inflated sense of ego. ...

Is Prince Harry a Chav?

I try to stay away from talking about the royals, mainly because they are a bunch of wankers. As Brits, our taxes are paying for those mother bitches to live the life. As if that weren’t annoying enough, the runt of the litter, Prince Harry seems to be getting the most airtime these days and...

Saying Bye to Blighty

Well, it’s come to an end. My vacation, that is, not my life (though you may be forgiven for thinking so, due to my lack of posts the past few weeks). As you read this, I am on a plane headed back to Toronto (probably desperately trying to resist the urge to put some screaming...

And the Beat Goes On

I think I speak for all citizens of the world when I say: we are over the US presidential election.   The race hasn’t even really started yet because the Democrats are still bickering about who the nominee should be. I think at this point, it would be perfectly acceptable to get Hillary and Obama...

Striking Out

I hate it when people go on strike. Actually, I hate the threat of a strike. It’s basically just blackmail, which I thought was illegal or something.   It’s so childishly ridiculous. At what point in life does striking become the appropriate response to a problem? When you’re a kid and you ask your parents...

A Sham of a Mockery of a Mockery of a Sham

Strange things are afoot in Blighty my friends. And it comes in the form of one of the weirdest family sagas that side of the pond has probably ever seen.   It all started in February when nine year old school girl, Shannon Matthews went missing and an intense 3 week search began for the...

London Gets Gangsta

Yesterday, the city of London did its best to extinguish the olympic torch on the UK leg of of the quest to get that bitch to China. With all the protests about human rights violations in China, seeing if the torch actually makes it to the destination has become an olympic event in itself.  ...
