Homophones comic #8

Yes, believe it or not, I still have more of these, and I still think they’re funny! This is another one of my favourites perhaps especially for the reference to a certain fandom (not the same as last time). This comic is based on the concept of homophones being words with different meanings and spellings…

Homophones comic #7

Warning: this one is a two word solution but only the second word is a homophone. Why? Because I thought it was funnier this way. And who couldn’t use an extra challenge?!… Also, in honour of my biggest fan (my mum…) I have made a separate homophones tab on the blog, so you can now…

Book review: So, Anyway… by John Cleese

3/5 stars Audible version, narrated by John Cleese. This is the first part (out of I don’t know how many) of John Cleese’s autobiography. I was not aware that it was part 1 of x when I purchased it, and I’m not entirely convinced it warrants multiple parts to be honest. He could have cut…

Martin carefully starts to experiment with the file, and finds he can teleport by changing the coordinates listed for his…

Book review: Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson

4/5 stars. This book is basically one big trigger warning (which I believe she even mentions herself at some point), but an important one for me: dead cats. Rest assured, there’s nothing about killing them or that sort of thing, and Jenny definitely seems to be an animal lover, but at the same time she…

Book review: The Break by Marian Keyes

4/5 stars. Audible version, narrated by Aoife McMahon. It’s already been months since I finished this read – or rather, listen – I’m so behind on my reviewing! I’m going to try and keep some of them a little shorter so I don’t feel completely daunted by the mere idea of reviewing the backlog. So…

Book review: Small Things Considered by Joel Schwartzberg

3/5 stars This collection was very uneven. It’s advertised as an essay collection, and though technically correct I feel most of the texts lack the depth and analysis I would generally expect from an essay. I’d rather call it a collection of anecdotes. It’s also very personal which isn’t a problem per se, but if…
