Happy New Year!

Auld lang syne

A Christmas Message from Rubin Santa Claus

  Yo ho freakin’ ho! Yes, folks, this “blawg” message comes to you from me, the Rubinman, Santa Claus, standing in for Amber because – guess what? Yeah, she’s freakin ILL. AGAIN. She totally got the cold, like really bad, on…

Dear Santa, please bring me a monkey, kthxbai

Hey, guess what I appear to have got as an early Christmas “present”? Did you guess “another freaking cold?” Congratulations, you win the house cup! Now please shoot me… Yep, just in case the flu I had the week before…

I don’t know “nothing”

I’m feeling a little better today. Only a little, but hey, at least I wasn’t up all night waiting for the sweet release of death, so that’s something. In a break from our regularly scheduled “Woe is me!” programme, then,…

Review | Miss Groovy double-ended Tweezer Duos

Now, as regular readers know, I love my tweezers. Maybe a little bit too much sometimes. And I love all kinds of tweezers, too. I love slant tweezers and I love point tweezers, which is why this Tweezer Duo by…

I need a foil blanket…

Yeah, it was the cold. Only at night? At night it turns into the flu, and I lie awake wearing all the clothes I can possibly wrap around my body, accessorized with two hot water bottles, one heating pad and…

It’s like raaaaiiiin, on your wedding day…

I know I’ve hardly mentioned this AT ALL, but I’m going on holiday this Sunday. THIS SUNDAY. Before I go, I have 26 blog posts still to write, and I’m not even making that figure up: I actually have 26…
