Today's protests in Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens sees 400 Greater Manchester Police deployed. A live stream of the protest, that actually buffered more than it streamed, was hosted on Facebook by the user account The Manc. It seemed that even the most fundamental aspect of the event, like who...

Still can't get over the fact that el hijo numero uno has spawned!!! I am to be called Mimi. I still want another baby myself, but I know there's no chance I'd ever have a girl. I've always known I'd only have sons. And, hilariously, I always said I bet I'd end up with a gaggle of...

Before I'd ever had a chemically induced surreal experience, I recall life striking me as incredibly odd. On a fairly regular basis. I put it down to being a child and that everything was pretty weird anyway, so, I never really thought a great deal about it. I just enjoyed it since I couldn't...
I live in Europe. Regardless of Brexit and the establishment of the European Super State, England can't be geo-politically edited out of Europe. It's a region, we're a part of it. It affects us. In Rouen, as I am so sure the whole world has heard by now, a church was attacked, a priest slain...

An old friend that I've known my entire life sent a message through my Mom asking me to call him. Unless I mean to be found, I cannot be found, but, I am really easy to get a message to. We have the same phone number that we had when I was in Kindergarten. Mom said he was telling her how he'd...
Brexit. Nothing annoys me worse than made up compound names for couples and/or situations. Brangelina. Tomcat. Whatever. Fortunately, that tendency seems to be on it's way out. Along with any British subservience to the European Union. Whilst this gives me immense pleasure on behalf of my...

I have never been a drinker. I have always put this down to the fact that I've been an Olympic puker my whole life and just couldn't keep it down long enough to justify the effort required to be a successful drinker. This puts me at odds with my English lineage. My American family were religious...
When a relationship begins to resound with echoing death knells, it's fairly unmistakable. I have known for a very long time that this would occur. And, honestly, it's been degrading since the moment it began. I blame myself. So does he. In fact, he not only heaps all the blame on me, but all...

I was just scrolling through youtube vids of Moz and came across this. I'm pretty impressed!

Feels like that long since I wrote here. I feel secretive, guarded, and exposed as I poise to write. I have not written in the full length of time I have been gone from here. I occasionally fall mute, to the unconcealed surprise of those who know me. It isn't within my nature to be quiet, much...
I have never really appreciated unsolicited advice. I don't "take" it. I don't take orders, either. I will seek out things I need to know. And as far as orders go, I've been running my own little show for ages and I will continue to do so. I don't get off on being bossy, and I certainly...
I am in the land of Scots. I am so happy when I'm here! Everywhere I look, there is something else I absolutely adore. It is such a gorgeous day. We woke up early, there are some very posh boys from down South back in England that are staying with us this year. They are blond, have perfect tv...
I want to be Rachel Brice. I think this is so ethereal and exotic. It's beautiful. That style of dance is incredibly taxing. The amount of control you must have over your movements requires such strength. It doesn't really look like she's doing much, but I know from past experience whilst...
We got a really weird phone call yesterday morning. A guy we don't really know very well has asked us to move into his recently purchased hotel/pub and run it. It looks pretty good on the auction house website. Not perfect, but workable. We're going down to have a look at it tomorrow. There...
I know that things get nasty on this site, but I have a different experience here. I enjoy coming here, I enjoy the exchanges with my fellow writers, look forward to reading new posts and actually miss folks when they aren't about for whatever reason. Everybody that had been missing turned up...
I am so miserable. For so many reasons. And I am completely unable to do very much about it right this moment, thus, compounding the misery, exponentially. I totally had a meltdown this morning. After being let down yesterday, AGAIN, by someone I trusted, this morning, I was in no frame of...
I just can't believe that was Bruce Jenner. The guy from the Wheaties box... He must've been burning up inside all those years thinking he was the better looking female in that house and he had to play a man with botched plastic surgery. I hope she feels better now in her new skin.
I found a company for whom I would actually LOVE to work. So, in typical Charlie fashion, I just wrote the owner. I didn't even look for employment listings for the company. Didn't check for a human resources contact. I just went straight to the MAN. It will either work, or it won't. What...
On May 3rd, I went to Ducie Bridge in Manchester with a lovely writer/former Manc band member, whom I have not asked for permission to divulge his name, so, as per MOW policy, he shall, here, remain nameless. Unless he reads this and says it's ok.... Isn't it nice to know what a confidant I can...
I WIN!! WOO HOO! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32583432 All my speculation on the historical significance of the name was spot on! I am a Royal history nerd, so it was easy. LOVE IT!!! She's a pretty baby, too!
