Debate

Long day which began sometime around the dawn chorus as I finished my piece on last night’s debate. You can read it over here. I grabbed a few hours sleep but it’s been one of those difficult days, largely on account of yesterday being better. Today was one of those days when we tried to […]

Starship

I forgot to blog yesterday and nearly did the same today. Pretty exhausted at the moment and I want to stay awake tonight to catch the last debate. I’ve also had a long week and yesterday was especially busy with phone calls. Yes, I do find it strange to write that line. I never get […]

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 […]

Waiting for the mail…

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 […]

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 […]
