I’ve been burping fish for about a month now, on an almost regular daily basis. I don’t think I’ve had any fish for a long time and therefore had no idea where that was coming from. Until today, when I

Whenever I want to get a bit more serious about my job search, I shave off my goatee: it’s quick, easy and does not require any intellectual effort. So I did today, and then found out when I met Dr.

The Experiment was not entirely unsuccessful. OK, I failed having just one beer and I had three, but I switched to water at 7pm. The interesting twist is that now it’s 11, I’m home with a headache and I’m already

If you’re one of my (seven) regular readers, do not worry. The disappearance of QuitMeter‘s “unsmoked cigarettes” counter from the bar above does not mean I’ve started again. In fact, I’ve hit the “400 pounds saved” mark on Friday night

Let’s randomly select an Italian gay man (quick look around – nobody there – I’ll volunteer then) and see if he can go to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern to meet his friends and Dr Bitful, purely on the strength of

Mon. Re-vamped my CV to give it a 2003 look (open-toe sandals and all) that’ll make it more appealing – and managed to fight off depression while looking at my concentrated “resum├ęd” life. Tue. Bad allergy-type thing on my eyes

Dano (Blogger New): “The Blogger platform of the future — today”. Well, after exactly seven minutes of beta testing last night I was stuck with a bug that did not let me publish the archives. Doesn’t that sound familiar? Looovely.

Like hundreds of thousands of other people, I can enter reminders into my mobile phone. Unlike most of them, I actually do it, occasionally to remind me of an appointment, but more often than not I set up alerts to

A big thanks to the anonymous Madonna fan who left me a comment here saying that the genuine American Life album is on Kazaa now (look for files with ‘www.21stcentury-mp3.com’). I’ve just downloaded Nothing Fails, that many sources have told

It’s a squirrel! It’s a bunny! It’s Squinny©! At least that’s what it looked like last night at The Yard (okay, it was dark, drinks were consumed and my nasty eye infection is back). This morning it looks more like

I went to get my results yesterday. Important things first, all seems to be well in the Little Me department. Phew. Moreover, I do not have anything to do any longer with the Clinic for Sexual Health from Hell. Hurray!

I’d really like to go to DTPM this Bank Holiday weekend, but the online tickets are sold out, and according to someone at Clone Zone that’s the only place where you could buy them. It’s either (shock! horror!) queuing up

Select a tempo that’s slightly under 100 beats per minute. Not too fast – not too slow. Choose a key, any key, as long as it’s minor. Start with a couple of full orchestra hits, followed by your vocalist saying

I was happily skimming through the lyrics of Madonna’s forthcoming new album, when I wondered if it had already leaked and could be downloaded from Kazaa. And yes, it had! So I started downloading track #1, went for a walk

Your name is Tricity, you’re a duo from Liverpool and you get selected to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest. So far, so good. You are told that there’s a British dishwasher company that shares your name, so

Today I did it with fifteen women I’d never met before. At once. And one whole hour later I emerged from it completely drenched in sweat, and feeling all glowing outside and tingling inside. I had not realized how much

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt during the last 21 days, it’s that apparently the most insulting act you can perform against someone in Iraq is to hit them with shoes. Even the Iraqi information minister said it about Bush

If I had any money to save, this is what I’d have saved by not smoking during the past six weeks. Due to my present unemployed condition, it’s more “300 pounds not spent“. Still, it’s quite something, and I hope
