2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,100 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

From A to B.. All thats in-between

From donkey whisperer to goat herder..Lets forget the in-between!
From donkey whisperer to goat herder..Lets forget the in-between!

Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckin’ fuuuuuck!

If sound could be seen and viewed as a colour,

This moment would be an ominous shade of FUCK!

This is the sound emanating from a hairy, four-eyed, balding little man awaiting a response to a heart wrenching e-mail *a shit one to boot, that  never should have been sent.      -Please note; I’m not always a miserable shite-

I’m sure we’ve all done it. The age of text messages, facebook and e-mails giving those of us with that red mist descending, ‘this is a good idea let’s do it now’ mentality, far too much opportunity to dribble our half-baked thoughts and schemes and punch ENTER quite appropriately as I now enter, or re-enter the ever growing and over populated land of Thefuck’dIdothatfor.

Now I could say I never learn, but this is actually a vast improvement on the time I sent a valentine’s message during my school days through the morning notice board that 1,500 people had the pleasure of reading. I spent a loooong time brooding in the land of Thefuck’dIdothatfor after that one, but that was many years ago and long forgotten, until now –shit.

So, back to the present and a pulsating heart pounds out toward a stupid little brain;

‘What have I done’?

You did what you had to

‘I’ve really done it now’

Indeed, but you gave it your best

‘But I did it all wrong’

Well, yes. You did it by fucking facebook you fucking idiot!

Waiting, waiting, w-a-i-ting..

To hear that familiar rendition of ‘let’s just be friend’s’, followed by the classic ‘it’s not you it’s me’ and finishing off with a slightly different version of ‘you’re a good guy, but not for me’. Yeah, I get it. Better than a kick in the balls, but I don’t have to be happy about it.

Waiting, waiting..


God, I hate being right all the fucking time!

Not really looking for another pen-pal to be honest and that’s really what facebook is –if you see them every day then what’s the point?

Despite the lols, dining updates and self-righteous ‘look how great I am’ dribble from people who want us to know how they support every humanitarian issue going, not to mention endless fucking games requests then yeah, facebook is  a great thing. Not so many friends in Scotland, but a fair amount scattered across the world from seven years of travel and adventure. Maybe 90% of these people I will never see again, not because I don’t want to but because life goes on, new things happen and I’ll most likely make new friends tomorrow. So to the future ‘let’s just be friend’s/pen-pal’s’ lady’s out there.. Let’s not.

In my bid to get a grip and stop acting like a big Jessie crawling from the pages of a Helen Fielding novel, I did what any man would do. Any non-religious man not long off a 30 year drought would do.

Thirty years. Thirty fuckin years and you better believe I give up. No one will ever have that chance to let me feel I’m just not good enough again, so as I crawl my way back towards the open arms of a masseuse named Crystal I wonder to myself if this is just the way it’s going to be, possible start to a no-strings physical relationship with a prostitute. How could this possibly go wrong?

-Smallest violin? Smallest fuckin’ orchestra jammin’ to this shit!-

Think we can guess the only possible time she can offer me is during her working hours at the cost of £75 and when I arrive she’s not even there. I’m met by an old, fat, smoking Romanian dwarf telling me it’s just herself on today and I’ve to take it easy as she’s pregnant. New lows in life, is this still the way to go? Futures bleak, this futures shite!

I’m out the door and fuming at life, at myself and with my morning horoscope which was a complete load of bollocks:

Today, Venus connects with the Sun and this is going to give your sex appeal a boost. Indeed, lots of people are likely to want to be with you. With all this popularity bubbling away, enjoy the plaudits and praise.

Fuck you Metroscope! Only person getting wet at my presence today is myself –by way of it being a miserable rainy day out there-.

My time back in Scotland has been a brief one but a brief one to soon forget. So close to falling in love with a girl so completely my type AND learning that when it comes to finding ways to move on then all the Crystal in the world won’t make things right.. and either will a pregnant, Romanian dwarf.

TEXT MESSAGE (from Crystal):

Where were u 2day?

Fuck this, I’m going to be a shepherd in Brazil… but not before changing my mind and realising I can’t give up this time

And that is how we get from A (Aruba) to B (Brazil)!

Not yet in Brazil shepherding goats, but here's one I worked for previously in Italy
