Images & Stuff

Random pictures, and stuff. Bits and pieces that I found amusing.

Maybe it’s the time of year…

Wow, coincidence? After much neglect I come back to this blog, answer a few questions and do some updates. While trawling around I notice that the last post I made was exactly one year ago today!! Maybe it’s the time of year. The cold weather has me relaxing on the couch keeping warm; no doubt the same was probably true this time last year too. Cold and I don’t get along all that well… So a year is a long time, and thinking back I’m trying to piece it all together in my head. What’s changed, what’s new etc. The main change I guess are that I’ve moved house. After …

It feels inherently wrong…

Other than that all is looking good.

Inane halarity…

The other day I was going through some old files looking for something and came across a s**tload of pics and stuff that I’d collected over the years and used to be on one of my old websites. So, instead of uploading things in gallery fashion as they were I thought I’d post a few every now and then as I felt motivated. So far, I’ve decided on a few obvious categories but I’m sure the list will grow. There’s everything from politically incorrect, to down right rude.
