Ah yes, the Wellerman Era.

Henry, for all his flaws, was at least a good lap-sitter.
My home office catches the sun very nicely in the morning.
Well that ending caught me by surprise.
It makes no sense. Immersion – ruined.
This will never stop bothering me.
The story of my first COVID booster
My Twitter following has grown to the point where something like this can get me 4 likes and a retweet. Most of my tweets get at least one like these days actually, I must have a fan.
Eurovision 2021 is remarkable for Iceland’s entry, 10 Years by Daði Freyr, which utterly slaps.
I hope this is enough to make up for the remark about her driving.
I do have a tendency to go overboard with this sort of thing. One day I’ll show you the stack of blank notebooks that wobbles on the bookshelf behind me.
I just spent way too long looking for the heating instructions on that pot of gazpacho soup.

I refer you back to the tweet of 21 June 2019.
Any hotel owners who don’t know what I’m talking about, please feel free to drop me a message and I’ll be happy to clarify.
10 PRINT “AROOOOO!”
Since then I’ve mastered the art of using a bit of hot water to loosen the lid. Top tip – you’re not doing it for long enough.
Five people “liked” this and I can’t help wondering if by “like” what they actually mean is “arrrrggghhh!”

There was no way I could let this opportunity pass. Sadly the collection of magnetic letters didn’t quite have enough digits so I did have to make one small compromise.
Three retweets and seven likes, in case you were curious.
With a setup like that, it was impossible to resist.10 August 2021
Hang on. Hang on just a second. I can’t believe what’s happened here. You’ve read the 2020 entry, right? How could this be? Someone’s made a colossal mistake here. And that someone is me.
I like to assume that they’re not making stuff up already.
Computer: Maintenance in progress
Me: Okay then.15 September 2021
I swear that my computer is doing this more and more often now that the operating system is reaching EOL, to try and make me upgrade.
