Panic

It’s World Mental Health Day, which I don’t normally mark because I’m never sure who decides which days are which. Seems like a marketing gimmick to me… However, I thought I’d write a bit about about my own mental health after the last few weeks. It might help me today. I feel I need to […]

The Long Dark

Autumn. And just like that it went cold overnight. Yesterday was a big nippy but this morning it’s cold. Four degrees as I slipped out of bed and wondered if I’d done the wise thing. I expect this week to be particularly busy. Tuesday is the presidential debate and I aim/hope to be awake for […]

Rubik

One of these days I will have a normal day, when I get around to writing long (hopefully) eloquant pieces. That just won’t be today because I have jobs to do. Not the awful jobs of the last few days but a quite decent job. Specsavers are coming to give my Mum an eye test, […]

In the weeds…

Was up until a stupid hour watching the Democratic convention. I’m not sure why except it never feels right catching it on Youtube the next day, where there’s too much temptation to fast forward a bit, which always turns into fast forwarding so much you effectively didn’t watch any of it… Perhaps that’s why I […]

Friday and already under attack from QAnon cultists annoyed by my piece yesterday where I’d called QAnon a cult. I knew I should have just called it a “nutty cabal”… I should have seen this coming. Commenting on American politics from a distance, I sometimes forget that there are a lot of people seriously invested […]

Comedian

Taking a break from a two-page cartoon spread I’ve decided to finish (I hope to post it tomorrow), I found myself in a strange tidying mood… It’s probably because I’ve had an Amazon account almost as long as I’ve had email that my Amazon account is linked to my very first email account. For that […]

Kamala

Wrote late into the evening about the VP pick. Should you wish, you can read it over yonder. I have to say, though, I’m feeling some mild relief that Biden announced Kamala Harris last night and not just because I think the ticket is probably the strongest that Democrats could field from those running. I […]

An Aimless Tuesday

Dear Diary… A post that will ramble, so apologies in advance. Given I posted four times yesterday, I guess is makes sense that today I don’t feel much like posting at all. I shouldn’t have looked on Twitter, though I’m waiting for Biden’s VP announcement since I intend to write about it. However, having looked, […]

The Gettysberg Address…

… (as written by Stephen Miller, with contributions in black Sharpie by Donald J. Trump) Four score and seven years ago our fathers, along with Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and the great George S. Patton, strongly brought forth on this continent, a brand new premier, world-class, top-of-the-line, triple A, gold standard nation, conceived on Fox News, […]
