I Thought I Was A Telly Addict…

Published by under Blog

Last week, I wrote a post on my telly-viewing habits, which got a great response. Thank you everyone.

But now I realise that, comparatively speaking, I’m an amateur. Check out Ray’s blog on the TV shows he intends to watch, some he has tried to watch, some he cannot watch, and some he just cannot help but watch again and again.

It’s one of the most enjoyable posts I’ve read in a while, but that probably just shows my nerdiness. I didn’t agree with everything he said, but he’s definitely given me more TV fodder to chew on.

Oh, and Lottie replied to Mr Foley here. I think she’s a little angry about the Buffy thing.

Update: B’dum B’dum gives his run down here.

Note: I don’t actually have a thing for Irish DJ’s. I just read their blogs a lot.

Proud To Be A Toyboy

Published by under Blog

On the night of the Blog Awards, I met a remarkable woman who ended up becoming one of my favourite bloggers. She writes very funny and very heartwarming posts and is an inspiration to anyone who wants to share their life with a bunch of strangers online.

Grannymar (winner of the April Blog Award) is brilliant. I love her to bits and I’m proud to call myself A Grannymar Toyboy.

On the off chance that you haven’t already done, check out Grannymar’s Blog.

Note: Well done to Will for sorting them out and there’s more info here.

Mr Rick, Jay Z And A Band Of Bloggers

Published by under Blog,Night Out

I was one of the bloggers plucked from Rick O’Shea’s hat to go along to the Jay Z concert on Thursday evening (we may partake of a few light beverages also). Thank you very much, Sir.

He describes the event as an experiment, which inspires an element of nervousness in me, but the man looks trustworthy enough, so I guess we’ll be fine. Ahem! We can only assume that this will play a part in the night. It should be good fun and I’m looking forward to meeting a bunch of fellow bloggers: Mr Rick, of course, but this bunch are also attending:

Pedro Monscooch

The Great Green Ink

The Mysterious Someone Living

Annie Rhiannon


Some chancer called Andrew

Wish us luck in Rick’s experiment.
