Rob, Rambling - A lot of things interest me...

Logan’s already 4 months old and is certainly enjoying becoming more and more involved in the world. He’s grabbing his toys now, and reacting to pretty much everything we do around him. He’s generally a very happy baby, always chuckling away and breaking out in huge smiles. This photo is from last weekend, when we took him to the cinema for the first time. He barely cried once and slept through most of it, thanks to his ultra-fashionable ear defenders!

I’m delighted to announce the arrival of my son Logan Robert on 19th April 2014. He arrived healthy and bubbly, and has already completely stolen my heart.

His mum is recovering fantastically well, and our little family is one very happy place to be right now.

I’m going to be a dad! This little one is due April 2014.

Discussing Wedding Plans

  • The Fiancee: Add it into the ideas folder
  • Me: We have an ideas folder?!

Unfortunately, the girlfriend and I are no longer together.

The fiancee and I, however, are just getting started…

(Yay!)

No one liked Howie.

I had a genuine LOL at this line, from Thought Catalog’s entry on the rivalry between Backstreet Boys and N*SYNC as part of their list of 10 things 90s kids will have to explain to their own children.

Of course, these were very much party tips for 2008, and while one wouldn’t suggest they have become déclassé since – it should be perfectly obvious that they were always déclassé – there may well be other vogues these days. There will doubtless be new “stemware fashions”, “mixer trends”, and all manner of emetic phrases I’d find it almost impossible to type were I not currently drinking a large bleach daiquiri garnished with some caramelised prescription uppers.

Marina Hyde, taking as her jumping off point Pippa Middleton’s reported £400,000 advance for writing a book about party planning. She points to an earlier article that Middleton wrote a few years ago, and how utterly, utterly vapid it was. My particular favourite quote:

A hibiscus margarita looks just elegant garnished with a caramelised slice of lime.

Obviously.

Get into the festive spirit with party outfit lingerie solutions!

Don’t mind if I do!

Honestly, you buy underwear for the girlfriend a few times, and soon your inbox is full of subjects like the above. Not that I’m complaining, although I’ll have to wait until I get home from work before actually opening the email…

Oh, and why is everything nowadays a “solution”?

Newsnight is a BBC TV news programme about the news nobody really cares about.
WhatTheTrend.com, in a user-submitted description of why a certain keyword is trending on Twitter in the UK. Sigh.

About

Londoner, thinking and writing far too much about far too many random things. Wannabe photo-/videographer of my life. More likely to be found propping up a bar somewhere.

I also write about football.

This mess is powered by Tumblr, on which there are many things I like. You can also ask me anything.
