Short Imagined Monologues – I’m Comic Sans

I’ve discovered Short Imagined Monologues, a website for short imagined monologues (funnily enough). They take submissions and I’m tempted to put pen to paper and give it my best shot.

Favourite Tumblr Pages

If I could count on myself to be a little more reliable I would have named this post ‘Favourite Tumblr Pages – Part 1’. But there is no point keeping a promise that you probably can’t keep, so enjoy my favourite Tumblr accounts of the moment. Hilarious.

Mo Farrah Running Away from Things

Pretty much what it says on the tin.

I Love Charts 

Including the definitive Meryl Streep matrix. Just why? Just brilliant.

The Burning House

If your house was burning, what would you take with you?

People Who

‘People who hold the door open for you when you’re still 20 yards away, forcing you into an awkward jog of gratitude’.

‘People who always choose the one-coin word in draw something’.

‘People who can’t enjoy the movie because it wasn’t exactly the same as the book’.

Clients from Hell

I had just updated some colors on the clients website, and asked him to reload the page in his browser.

CLIENT: How do I do that?

ME: Press the F5 key.

CLIENT: Do I press the F and 5 keys at the same time?

You are WELCOME. Enjoy my humour on some of these fabulous sites!
