Still on the bog

I can’t help but laugh about the fact that, while my fellow bloggers write about fabulously expensive clothes, trendy openings, launches and cosmopolitan lifestyles I am blogging about having the sh*ts in a backpackers’ hostel in Mexico. Where is the glamour, Robinson? You rotten munter! Could you not at least pretend that you’re wearing expensive high heels as you charge to the bog, swearing and yelling? Could you not, I dunno, give yourself a must-have manicure during your hours of isolation in the sanitario? Nope. I could not. I am a rotten munter and that’s all there is to it. … Continue reading

Lies

Every time I log into my email I am offered a selection of feckin diabolical articles courtesy of the email provider’s homepage. A recent offering that had me swearing into my herbal tea was “ten most horrible beach bodies.” Seriously?

Why don’t they offer me articles on international … Continue reading
