After all these years of avoiding blogs, I've ended up starting one. Why do I hate them so much? Because, generally speaking, most of the ones I've read tend to be self-obsessed twunts who want to tell you about their mundane, unimportant lives.
To be frank, you don't want to know about my day to day life - it would bore the shite out of you. Don't get me wrong, I love my manshape and the kids to bits, but I do realize that however fascinating it is to me that Son No. 4 has got 5 teeth and has learnt to play with the computer mouse pad (at 5 months), you really don't want to hear about it. And, quite frankly, I have no interest in the contents of your meal last night, nor which pub you're planning to go to tonight.
But, and I realise there's a flaw in this plan, I need a forum to shout out my rage at the world. I think posting on facebook has it's value, but I can't keep creating endless notes, or I'll end up spamming them all as much as the youtube music videos I frequently end up scrolling through.
And let's face it - I've been stuck on this sofa for a while, and it looks like I'll be here a while longer. Until I can get up off my arse and DO something, this is about the only way I can endlessly talk tripe and at least feel like I'm doing something worthwhile.
So apologies are in order, but hey, I only invited you here - you don't need to keep reading! But hopefully, somewhere along the way, you might find my shit mildly amusing or entertaining, or maybe even valuable. Of course, I anticipate most of it will be links to articles about outrageously unjust political situations, but that's what gets my goat. Shoot me if I start talking about cross-stitch though, eh?
