I couldn’t decide on whether the title for this post should be: “Why Warwick is a Terrible Jungler” but managed to fight the urge. My flatmate has recently picked up League of Legends, reportedly the biggest E-Sport in the world even above StarCraft – probably because it’s hard to lose LoL in three minutes without… Continue reading Not So Big Bad Wolf
People who are dieting might not be fit, and people who exercise might not be thin. I write this while chowing down on a Chicago Town (brand not location) microwaveable pizza having spent my whole day inside, so I am not going to claim to be either. It is, however, an important fact to accept.… Continue reading Dieting Vs Exercise Vs Enjoyment

The below is a narrative battle report of an X-Wing Epic game (four players aside, 250pts a player). I was on the Imperials… Continue reading The War for the Spartan Sector, First Report

I am now thirty thousand words into my novel and going strong – and still writing bits on the side. I’m pretty damn chuffed… Continue reading The War with Words Continues
2016 begins with a fresh chance to lose weight! As does every day, if you’ve got the right attitude. After losing five and a half stone (cue much rejoicing) I put two stone back on over a year and a half. I don’t have a reference for this except possible the noise made by… Continue reading Yet Again, Into the Breach
I cannot believe Draps found this. It is horrifically mundane and mildly dull as a principal – people can literally do that thing where they pretend to be a train conductor anywhere they like. On the bus, at the office; hell, even the gym! Train-conducting fantasists could be lying in wait for a signal and… Continue reading Pocket Trains: Is that the X-O’clock to nowhere?
