So excited I may just crap

When Emma and I lived in Hong Kong I used to regularly breakfast on these spicy flavour Nissin noodles.  Everyone that came to visit was subjected to a taste of these wee beasties and nobody was ever disappointed. 

I stocked up on them during my last trip to HK for the rugby [ HK Blog ] but today they ran out.  It only took a few minutes of smurfing the web but I finally found them here.  So I ordered 40 packets of them.

Happy days are here again!

Petrol prices in the UK


I’ve been driving around a fair bit recently heading up to the Lake District to sail my boat and travelling down to Reading to go to the office and the thing that I keep noticing is the petrol price is always 104.9p per litre or 115.9p per litre.  Why do they have to keep putting the 0.9 on the end of it? 

Do oil companies think drivers go "tskkk, just look at that, it’s 115p per litre now.  Still at least it’s not 116p".  Well, people really aren’t that fucking stupid now are they.  It’s like when people advertise their house at £299,999 because then it’s not advertised for £300k and it "sounds cheaper".  Fucking imbeciles the lot of them.

So dear petrol stations and home sellers, let’s call a spade a spade and stop fannying around with 0.9p or knocking £1 of a £300,000 pound house.  Jesus.

Bunch of psychos the lot of ’em.  Taken at the beer festival in Bispham Green.  May 08.


A long time ago back when I was suicidally stupid rather than today when I am just a bit of a thickie, Aggy and I went to California for a skydiving holiday.  We’re both alive to tell the tale so it didn’t go too badly.

On the final day we had videos made of us doing our solo jumps.  You’ll notice my exit from the plane doesn’t go too well and I somersault for about five thousand feet.  I meant to do that, seriously!

All good clean fun.

What’s Denis doing?

A long long time ago, in an employ far far away we had to make a stupid corporate video for Openwave.  It really was a complete waste of time and money. 

Still we had a laugh making our little part of it, and it was better than working.

The line up is Me, Abigail Kroon-Herbert, Martin Bradshaw and Denis Gershongoren.  The man behind the camera is Robert Wakeling.
