Wake up, and Smell the Coffee

When I was in the USA, I lived in the midtown area of Atlanta…which was lovely! I was told this was the “gay area” by someone in hushed tones, but honestly I didn’t see the problem – all I saw were friendly strangers who liked to give compliments, and some great brunch establishments! How could anyone hate that?!Continue reading “Wake up, and Smell the Coffee”

Taco Bell Romance

The title says it all really! This is a tale of true romance that took place in the most romantic of all romantic locations..a Taco Bell. And a Taco Bell bathroom at that!  Trust you’ll get a giggle from it…enjoy!  If you have a video request you can leave a comment, or send me an emailContinue reading “Taco Bell Romance”

IS 50 CENT BANKRUPT?! (NAHH!)

Despite his namesake this 50 Cent character is far, far, far from broke. Here I break down exactly what is going on; it’s all clever legal maneuvering rather than Monopoly style madness. Worth a watch: So what do you think of him then? Smart guy, or total knob? Both perhaps? If you have a video request youContinue reading “IS 50 CENT BANKRUPT?! (NAHH!)”

The Struggling Artist (USA)

USA – Atlanta, Georgia ~2010 As a kid I could sit at the kitchen table for hours and hours drawing – whether it was superheroes, monsters or my teachers – my imagination was my own limit, and I did it all on reams of cheap copier paper (my Dad “knew a guy”)…unfortunately this passion wasContinue reading “The Struggling Artist (USA)”

The Psycho Stalker…

Some stories write themselves…and some take years, and years…well this particular one has been waiting in the drafts for a long, long time. Every time I went back to it I just couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t express all of the oddness, craziness, and horror on the page! I came close, but it didn’t ever seem quiteContinue reading “The Psycho Stalker…”

Waka Flocka Flame (USA)

USA – Atlanta ~2011 Naturally while I was in the USA I wanted to soak up as much….errr…culture, as possible! This is my vague aim everywhere I go I suppose, after all before you know it, the trip, holiday, or stay, is over – and you are back in your “ordinary” setting, almost like it didn’t everContinue reading “Waka Flocka Flame (USA)”

An 8 Year Old’s America

A student of mine handed me this today – announcing; “This is why I don’t like America.”  We had been discussing holidays, and dream destinations – so this wasn’t exactly part of the lesson plan…but I couldn’t exactly fault him, as he was so well informed for an eight year old…particularly as he is Korean,Continue reading “An 8 Year Old’s America”

ILLEGAL in the USA!

It was back in 2010 that my first real trip took place, sure I had been on family trips to France and Spain during the school holidays – but this was different…I was heading off to the USA, for a whole year…by myself. Now, I wouldn’t blink at this kind of thing, but back thenContinue reading “ILLEGAL in the USA!”
