July 26th 2020 Today I had the briefest of hesitations of whether I should run or not. I did, but it was at 8pm and it was raining and I still felt tired and kinda hungover. I considerd the fact that 83 days was a decent run, so to speak, and that I could just stop it there. And then I went for a run anyway. It was actually a decent run in the end as well. Usually when I run I listen to the Fake Doctors, Real Friends/Scrubs rewatch podcast from Zach Braff and Donald Faison, but I’d already … Continue reading Hesitations


23rd July 2020 Today I reneged on my decision to not drink during the week. It just seemed an appropriate course of action, given the events of the day. Two separate trips to Tesco to buy a bottle of wine on a Thursday isn’t tragic, it’s fun. What is tragic, though, is that I just wrote ‘tracking’ instead of ‘tragic’ because I was thinking about a work thing. Clearly need more wine. One moment please. I decided not to drink during the week because I drank a lot last weekend and I’m gonna drink a lot this weekend too. But … Continue reading Reneged


22nd July 2020 Today I paid a dude £300 to fix the brakes on my car in order for it to pass it’s MOT. Are functioning brakes really worth £300? Perhaps. It still hurt though. To make up for spending £300 on brakes I spent £18 on a t-shirt to wear to London next week. Also, to make up for deciding to eat a salad for lunch, I did that thing I do where I make a chilli with 750g of meat and somehow make just three portions out of it. I made up for the fact that my body … Continue reading Made


July 21st 2020 Today my body aches all over because of a round of golf. Also I want to go out and do normal things with the people I love. Also I want to know what my life is going to be like in six months time. Also I don’t know what normal is supposed to be. Also I realised too late that I didn’t have appropriate salad for my chicken, jacket potato and salad so I overcooked a pan sauce that I had to then throw away and I ended up just having to pour gravy on what was … Continue reading Also


July 20th 2020 Today I made carbonara instead of carbonara. For that sentence to work, please re-read it but roll the r’s on the second carbonara. Because I didn’t make carbonara, I made carbonara. This distinction would work much better if spoken aloud, but that’s not really the point of a blog. Anyway, I disrespected some italian grandmas by putting garlic in my carbonara. I also used a mix of pecorino and parmesan, I emulsified the egg/cheese mix with a dash of starchy pasta water, and I served it with a sprinkle of diced parsley for the aesthetic. It was … Continue reading Authentic


July 16th 2020 Today I agreed to climb Mount Snowdon in 3 weeks time. Mount Snowdon is one of the three highest mountains in Great Britain. It’s either second or third after either Ben Nevis and/or Scaffell Pike. I could google the answer for more accuracy, or I could leave it up to chance and say that I think it’s the second highest after Ben Nevis. If I’m wrong, please don’t let me know. I’d prefer to imagine that I got it right. Anyway. My friend Jim text me out of nowhere to ask if I wanted to climb it … Continue reading Exotic
