Transmission to an ex

Stuff I'd say to an ex girlfriend if I were going to say them. You'd probably only want to read this if you like reading random things out of other people's diaries. Which I do, but it's not for everyone.

Your Mind is a Funny Thing

My book about how the sense of humour works in the human mind and insights into the craft of comedy and stuff.


I mainly use this to post pictures of random things I come across that amuse me. No selfies, pictures of things I'm eating, or "look how awesome my life is" pictures. I might post things I draw or to mention if I've made something I'd like you to see.


I use this mainly to post links to things like when I've updated my blog, or maybe mentions of me in other places, and that sort of thing.
