Too Many Hashtags

#whoopsie In November I spent two weeks in Samoa on a clinical placement for an unnamed university, who will remain as such because I’m paranoid that naming it will see me expelled. And I need this fucking degree: one evening, I was chatting to two students—Copper, an ex-detective; and Vag, a fellow enrolled nurse. Copper … Continue reading Too Many Hashtags


Trawling Tinder

I've never had a good experience on Tinder. And yet, like a woman trapped in a co-dependant union, I keep going back. Because Tinder is fucking hilarious. Pockets of humanity lurk on there and trawling Tinder freaks has become a perfectly acceptable way to spend my weekend. He Gives Good Head Take this guy: Check out … Continue reading Trawling Tinder

Rusty Butter Knives and Baby Bunny Rabbits

I’ve been writing a lot about love lately. One post seems to jump off the back of the last. What started as 5000 semi-literate words on my computer has been cut and pasted into four rambling posts that probably sound like a maudlin episode of Growing Pains where questionable wisdom is imparted with a smug, … Continue reading Rusty Butter Knives and Baby Bunny Rabbits

CC Unplugged in Cambodia

I try not to hate on Facebook. It's incredibly hipster to do so, but I don't. I wouldn't say that I take it seriously, but I acknowledge that I can be useful for some things: getting in contact with old friends, keeping in touch with people, forging new connections...heck, I wouldn't have heard about Nelson … Continue reading CC Unplugged in Cambodia

But…if we can’t TELL everybody how fabulous our life is, how can we really enjoy it?

After visiting the Louvre, I can only come to one conclusion: nobody appreciates The Mona Lisa. It's true. It's constantly surrounded by tourists. Tourists who inch their way to the front, quickly snap an iPhone picture, turn, then leave. Seriously, what's the fucking point in that?! That's the equivalent of going to a concert and … Continue reading But…if we can’t TELL everybody how fabulous our life is, how can we really enjoy it?

The Charisma Effect

A few weeks back, I was out with two friends, Bestie and Mr Charisma. We were at a Breaking Bad farewell party. I was at the bar with them both, chatting happily to the young bartender as he made our cocktails. As part of the evening, we were given cute little promotional things, such as … Continue reading The Charisma Effect

National FANG Day

Years back, I may, or may not, have worked with someone who rubbed a person’s toothbrush under the rim of the toilet as payback. While I’m not explicitly admitting to it, I’m not denying it...actually, I'm not at liberty to say who did it...but I can categorically state that the victim deserved it. I’m not … Continue reading National FANG Day

Peacock Feathers

As a general rule, I try and avoid social media during times of emotional turmoil. I detest emotion fuelled Facebook rants. I don’t judge anyone who does it, because we have all been there. I just hate when I do it. In all honesty, I would rather drunkenly attack my status and describe the contents … Continue reading Peacock Feathers

A big blue-and-white box of social media debates

I am in the midst of an almost Facebook war. I say 'almost' because I am waiting for a response to my last punchy and snappy comment. It has been a long, long time since I have found myself stirring any sort of pot on Facebook. The last time was when I posted the following … Continue reading A big blue-and-white box of social media debates
