Like The Palm Of My Hand

This is a photograph of a plate. I am just as confused as you are as to why this diagram has been put onto a plate. Nevertheless, I find it both interesting and informative. Thanks to this plate, I can finally read the lines on my palm(s). So here’s what I learnt from a plate: 1. I have a deep ‘Line of Mars’. I can only assume that this means either a) I am from Mars and therefore a […]

The Perks Of Rising Early

On the odd occasion I am woken by my morning alarm. On the very odd occasion I sleep right through it. Some mornings, however, I wake long before it goes off.

They were trying on 90s-style […]

There is a little poster on the wall in my bedroom of Andy Warhol’s black and white portrait above the quote “I think everybody should like everybody”. Andy’s logic is simple, but I’ve come to fear that this simple act of liking everybody is much easier said than done. Don’t get me wrong; I “like” almost everybody. I can count on the fingers of just one hand the number of individuals I actually dislike. What […]
