    The World is Flat

    The Song Remains The Same

A quick rummage through 'My Documents', they claim, would deliver all the...

    thought i'd share it. Headed 'the guy's rules' 1. Men are NOT mind readers. 1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down. 1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or...

    Diary of a Shrimper in Devon

    Saturday (Early) The alarm went off bang on 5 and hit the wall at 1 second past, my reflexes are still pretty quick even at this god awful hour. Get up and stand on clock. Scream and kick clock. Scream louder as I remember I have nothing on my feet. Clock looks all smug as I limp to the...

    Reading - Arsenal

    I covered this game last night, and if you didn't see it then congratulations. It was truly awful and a shocking example of the way the game has gone in the top flight. Here's the report, have a read and be thankful that Southend aren't in the Premier League! "What do you do with a problem...

    Fell asleep watching Consadole Sapporo
