I can take pictures and put text on them; this is what makes man the dominant species

  • I have noticed that my hair is growing faster since I left my job. When I was in the UK in October, I delighted in the fact that Chris and Geraint -- who are both younger than me -- were losing their hair faster than me. Ever since then, I have been convinced that karma would repay me by making me go bald within a year. And I have watched with concern one little patch on the top of my head that was slightly thinner. But now, as I say, my hair appears to be coming back. Yes!
    Unemployment is the new Propecia. It's better, actually, because it doesn't cause impotence -- perhaps to the child bride's chagrin. Even with the pressures and frustrations and distractions of full-time employment I am a sex pest. Now that I have more energy, I am even worse.
    HER: "Cool down. Don't you have anything to do?"
    ME: "Nope. Take off your pants."

  • I don't have much to blog today because I spent several, several hours pushing my 90s-era HTML skillz to the max in redesigning my Welsh-language blog. I am immensely proud of the fact that I made my own header. Yes, a 14-year-old girl could slap something like that together in about 5 minutes, but I'm not a 14-year-old girl, am I?
    I am a 30-year-old man and it took me about an hour.
    It doesn't make sense in a Welshy context to have incorporated an Irish beer into my header, but I don't care. Guinness is the always hotness*. If I want to spend all day putting Guinness on my blog, that's my right, bitches.
    The new template has an odd foible in the sense that a post will magically disappear from the line up. It can be brought back by refreshing the page. I assume this has something to do with my fucking with the CSS. If anyone has a clue as to what I've done and how to fix it, I'd appreciate some help.
    I am still looking for a better template for this here blog that you're reading. It's had the same look for 16 years. So far, I've got nothing, although I thought it would be funny to put this one up. Amateur, tacky and hard to read -- what could be better?

    *See what I did there, Jenny?

    How much longer is the Child Bride going to have to put up with you constantly trying to take her pants off?

    Why don't you take up a new hobby? I imagine you'd be quite good in the local tourist information office...

    "No, just turn around and go to Texas instea"
