The year has rolled around and we've had ourselves another Yule Sacrifice. You might call it a family Christmas party, but I'm far more outre and pretentious than you. We Vipers live in a small house. My home, "Viper's Hole", is a tight fit. There's not much room at the best of times, so the … Continue reading Another Yule Sacrifice
Another blog post? Yes, why the hell not. It's my blog, I'll do as I please. This is a short one. This is about snow. I'm a grown man. Why do I crave snow? Why do I, quite genuinely, dream of a white Christmas? Snow is the last piece of magic that the universe has … Continue reading The Viper’s Feeling for Snow
Caveat: this post is too long. Ignore it. I'm going to try to do a serious, philosophical post. I get the feeling my inherent flippancy and sarcasm will ooze into it, though. It'll end up stained with my absurdity. I'm not really bright or articulate enough to communicate what I want to say, so … Continue reading Poisonous Beliefs
Chilly, isn't it? Well, it is here. I don't know what it's like with you, I'm not bloody well psychic, am I? It's pretty nippy around Viper's Hole today. It's winter, so that's to be expected. I'm resisting having the heating on, but the Viperina was beginning to shiver, so I've set the boiler going. … Continue reading Follow your Dreams! (A rebuttal)
Another 'Moments of Excellence'?! Why not? Go on, treat yourself. Moments of Excellence Twelve It's Advent! Hope you're enjoying it. Much love, Viper (and, to a lesser extent, Greg).
Well, well, well. Look who it is. You. Creeping back to my blog to find out about my luxurious Viperish lifestyle. You never write, you never call. You just slither into my blog and start looking for good stuff. Then I, like a fool, give you that stuff. All that lovely stuff. I went out … Continue reading Bear Coffee Company – Derby
I'm feeling a little fragile. You want to know why? I'll tell you for why. Today I took our pushchair to the charity shop. There's no point keeping it, we don't need it any more. It's a bulky bit of kit to have in the closet. What possible emergency would we keep it for? A … Continue reading Fragility
I felt like writing about Britain. I think it's because Brexit makes me feel sad. Brexit reminds me of the things that I hate about Britain. I hate the xenophobia, the jingoism and the poisonous nostalgia. Part of the trouble is that I am only inches away from being a Brexiteer. I love this country, … Continue reading BRITAIN! BRITAIN! BRITAIN!
I know it's not Christmas for a long while, but Mrs Viper has already started watching films on Christmas 24, the Christmas Channel and Xmas X-Rated. I know, it seems odd that there are actually people out there who watch this rubbish, but Mrs Viper proves that they exist. I imagine they have secret forums … Continue reading More Christmas Movies
I know, I know. I've not written in a while. This isn't proper writing either, it's just to let you know I've done another vee-log. I'm thinking of writing something soon. Soonish. Maybe something about the environment and the dominance of plastic. Maybe something about artificial intelligence. Maybe something about cat poo. You know, high-brow … Continue reading Excellence 11
