Killer Kale - Elizabeth has been working on a screenplay for a vegan zombie film called Killer Kale and one of my co-workers graciously applied his Photoshop skills to the movie poster. Thank you, Ryan! It’s perfect.
Is this a scene from a horror film? - In keeping with my earlier proclamation about not giving a rat’s arse about what anyone else thinks, behold the uninhibited Rachel looking like a dork and wearing pyjamas. I ate all that green stuff just after the photo was taken. It’s produce from my plot at the allotment which is where I went in the … Continue reading Is this a scene from a horror film?
Goodbye goody two-shoes - Yesterday I did everything in my power to kill myself accidentally. It’s fortunate I survived because today is my birthday and I’m now the meaning of life, 42. I’m a bit of a goody two-shoes but this is only because I don’t like getting into trouble. This makes it doubly painful when I do the … Continue reading Goodbye goody two-shoes

My mother is visiting and yesterday we went to Dunnottar … Continue reading Dunnottar Castle
Sack racing in front of the Queen - We were very pleased to return our campervan today and return home to hot water and flushing toilets. I’ve realised that those old VW campervans are just for young, cool people who can defy their natural biology by not producing any poo. Ben and I both have war wounds. Ben for hitting his head on … Continue reading Sack racing in front of the Queen
On top of the world - We’re in Braemar for the weekend but were unable to get any accommodation because the Braemar Gathering is on and so we decided to book a 1974 VW campervan and take our own accommodation. It has been a bit of a disaster so far. I had a lot of problems shifting gears. I learnt … Continue reading On top of the world
I’m on TV! - This morning I was interviewed by John Parkinson from WordPress TV about what WordPress means to me. Is this my stepping stone to a part on Doctor Who? I probably should have brushed my hair a bit better first. John interviews people who attend WordCamps. He has other great interviews on the WordPress.tv site.
