There was a shriek from the bathroom this morning. The little lady had discovered a ‘tarantula’ in the bath. “It’s that big” she says, holding hands out that would easily encirle a dustbin lid (the old-fashioned corrugated type, not a wheely bin). The offending creature was, in fact, about an inch wide. Anyway, I ejected the helpless thing out of …

I’d never heard of her until three days ago. She’s headline news today after dying following a skiing accident. Now that’s awful and tragic news, no doubt about it.

The only exceptions I can think of is the lovely Cerys Matthews, boyo, and that geezer out of …

Wankword obsession?

Help! It seems as though I’m becoming wank-word obsessed. I’m listening out for them all the time now. I think I may be developing a wank-word problem. Where do I go? Wankwordaholic’s anonymous? Anyone have their number? Anyway, in my quest to discover more wankwords, I stumbled upon another chap’s blog post about tips on things to avoid when writing …
