A bit of a different blog today. Instead of writing a story or something else of interest, I have done one of those questionnaires you often find on the Facebook page of teenage girls. Not that I go searching for teenage girls on Facebook. I’ll stop digging my hole now.

Read on and enjoy, suckers!


Time started: 22.01
Name: Sean
Single or Taken: Taken and happy about it – sorry, hordes of girls
Sex: Male
Eye colour: Blue – red when my contact lenses have been in too long or I’ve been on the crack pipe
What are you wearing: What is this? A sex chat line? OK… tracksuit bottoms and a Leeds United training top – my winter nightwear
Where do you live: Bath, England – in ‘Good Olde Zummerzet’
Righty or lefty: Righty… I take it that refers to what hand you use as opposed to any political views held


Where is your favorite place to shop: – I remember when they were Play247. So much money spent.
Colour: Purple (not a film reference)
Number: 7
Animal: Shark
Month: August
Movie: Jaws
Juice: Tropical – although do Innocent smoothies count as juice?

Given anyone a bath: Our pet guinea pig years ago when it was too old to lick it’s own shit off its coat
Smoked: The way I like my bacon
Bungee Jumped: No and never will
Gone skinny dipping: See above
Eaten a dog: Not knowingly… possibly from a burger van at football
Put your tongue on a frozen pole: No, although I did on an ice cube – painful
Broken a bone: Nope – cue a broken leg tomorrow
Played truth or dare: On PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360?
Been in a physical fight: Only once or twice, but that comes with the territory having attended Culverhay school
Been in a police car: Yes – neither as a criminal/suspect/victim – I was late for the dentist (true story)
Been in a hot tub: Nope
Swam in the ocean: Not again after seeing my ‘favourite movie’
Fallen asleep in school: What do you think? I’ve already stated I went to Culverhay
Broken someone’s heart: Every girl who just read I was taken
Cried when someone died: The death of my goldfish was a dark day

Sat by the phone all night waiting for someone to call: Nope – that’s what text messages are for
Saved AIM/MSN conversation: I think my laptop saves them automatically, so probably

Compulsive: Must tidy… stay clean. Must tidy… stay clean. Must tidy… stay clean…. No, I’m not
Anorexic: I’m friends with Ronald McDonald on Facebook and the Indian takeaway know me so well they gave me a calendar at Christmas. You be the judge of that.


What are you listening to right now: The news has just finished, so probably the weather next – “ITV weather, sponsored by Braces Bread – enough said”
What did you do yesterday: Work. Eat. Football. Sleep.
What car do you wish you had: One of those that James Bond had. The one in Goldfinger with the ejector seat and missiles looked cool. That invisible car was just plain stupid.

How many remote controls are in your house:
Fuck loads. Far too many to count. More than Dixons.
Last time you took a bath: Years ago! No, I’m not a dirty twat, I have a shower in my flat which I use every month without fail.
The last movie you saw at the cinemas: I can’t remember what it was called. It had Ray Winstone in it (the bloke from the Bet365 adverts)
Do you like scary or happy movies: Happy. I’m not allowed to watch scary movies anymore – underwear is too expensive nowadays
Black or white: What? Movies? Chocolate? People? I never notice the difference 🙂
Root Beer or Dr.Pepper: I’m not a Yank, so have never tasted Root Beer. Dr. Pepper is OK, although I am scared of what may happen if I drink it.
Vanilla or chocolate: Chocolate
Silver or Gold: Gold – made by Terry’s
Diamond or pearl: …. it’s getting late now and I can’t be bothered to think of a witty response

Taken from the BBC match report of tonights game involving Bath City and Newport County…

Bath City 2-2 Newport County

Newport County came back twice as they rescued a Conference point at Bath City to secure their fourth successive draw.

Striker Scott Murray gave Bath a lead, scoring in an empty net after County keeper Glyn Thompson missed his kick.

Yemi Odubade levelled in his first start as the County striker fired in from Graeme Montgomery’s set-up.

Wayne Hatswell’s 35-yarder gave Bath a lead before Newport’s Lee Phillips responded with his own 20-yard effort but County still have not won in 2011.

Anyone who has the slightest bit of knowledge on Bath City or Newport County will be able to spot the error-ridden match report.

A message for the journalist who wrote this…


Incidentally, well done to Bath City’s Lee Phillips for helping City come back to draw. Congratulations to Newport County’s Wayne Hatswell for his excellent goal as well.

The bit about Newport not winning in the whole of 2011 is true. Shame… hehehe.

What’s that old saying? “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is”

I found out the hard way after using that price comparison website ‘Go Compare’ – ‘Go Fuck Off’, more like.

After agreeing a deal with some insurance company to cover the contents of my flat, I discovered today that the policy is invalid and cannot be offered due to the fact I live 250 meters away from a river.

Now I know people get floods and houses become badly damaged as a result, but for that water to reach me, it would have to climb a steep hill, destroying hundreds of houses and probably killing thousands. It would be the biggest natural disaster to happen in the history of the universe and would make that 2004 Indonesian tsunami look like a dripping tap.

However, this company refused to see my logic (and common sense) and therefore the deal is off. I won’t be using them again, even if I move to another property. Not because I hold grudges, but because I can’t be bothered to read all their other exclusions which could include alien abduction, cloned dinosaurs nicking your telly or the ghost of The Titanic falling through the sky into your living room.

Instead, I went crawling back to my old insurer, begging that they take me back and apologising profusely for my treachery in turning to the dark side. A nice Geordie lady reassured me everything would be OK, that they would have me back, Ant & Dec would get a No.1 single and Newcastle United win The Champions League.

Geordies are much more reassuring than Essex girls.

I thought Tuesday’s football away day was rubbish. The coach broke down, we were late and lost the game. I didn’t think things could get worse than that night. I was tempting fate and fate is a bitch.

Yesterday, after almost 2 hours on the coach and a drive up the M5, we were told that the game against Rushden & Diamonds was off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Normally when a game is postponed, you have prior warning. The weather is often freezing cold or the heavens have sent a monsoon upon earth, drowning us all. There was none of this.

Apparently, it had been raining heavily overnight and the ground was unplayable. Now, I neither claim to have the intelligence of Albert Einstein or the football knowledge of Eric Djemba-Djemba, but to me, if a pitch resembles more of swimming pool than a playing field, I would have thought there may have been the slightest of chance the game would be in doubt.

Bearing this in mind and being a courteous and responsible person, had I been employed by Rushden & Diamonds Football Club, I would have contacted Bath City and advised them of this and requested they not travel until a referee confirms whether the pitch is suitable for football or can be loaned to the Women’s Olympic Water Polo Team.

Maybe I’m being naive. Maybe I’m too polite. Or maybe Rushden’s communications manager needs to learn to communicate.

I totally understand that in many cases, games have to be called off, even after fans have left. However, in this instance, it appears obvious that this could have been avoided and much time and money saved by Bath City and its poor supporters.

I played The Million Pound Drop online tonight. I wanted to prove a point that I could win any trivia competition with Google at my disposal. 4 questions in, I lost £1,000,000. Bollocks. Maybe next time I’ll try Bing.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
