WTF

Photobombs

FASHUN BLOGGING = SO HARD, you guys! Witness:   In other news (which will be totally repeated news if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter: sorry!), yesterday morning we woke up to this: Well, actually we woke up in…

Happy Halloween!

I know it’s not actually Halloween until tomorrow, but my mum just emailed me this photo of Rubin (he stayed with my parents’ last night while we were out partying: we’re heading off to pick him up soon!), and it…

Random Rubinman

It’s been a horrendously stressful couple of weeks. This is the kind of thing that’s been helping us get through it: Well, that and the wine. Oh, and watching my parents and Terry slide down Arthur’s Seat on their butts…

Bedtime in the Forever Amber household

So, on Friday night Terry and I are getting ready for bed. I come out of the bathroom, only to find Terry standing at the bedroom window, scanning the street, and sniffing the air like a bloodhound. “Someone in the…

Friday Photo: Best Joke Ever

Rubin and I just heard the best joke ever: We’re totally not going to tell you what it was though. Sorry. Today I decided, in my infinite wisdom, that I would start up a Tumblr. Well, all the cool kids…

In the doghouse

Remember the shirt Terry got for completing his 10k run on the weekend? It was white. Pristine. It had the name of the race on the front of it, and, this being the first race of this type Terry had…

Crime Scene, Do Not Enter

Yesterday I was working away at my desk when I happened to look round to find that OMG, there had been a MURDUR!  </ Taggart> This photo doesn’t really do the scene justice, because there was stuffing EVERYWHERE. Whoever the…

Stuff. In the form of a list.

Because I am lazy: 1. I still haven’t found The Dress. This is much to the distress of Terry, because it seems that I just can’t stop talking about it. I mean, I thought I’d maybe be OVER IT by…

Gardening with Rubin

I hate gardening. And, yes, I know, I’ve already made my point about that, thanksverymuch, so don’t worry, this isn’t going to be YET ANOTHER POST about how much I hate and resent the fact that I work hard all…

Nuthin’ mo’ betta

On the way back to the airport last week, we passed a restaurant that had the tag-line “Nuthin’ mo’ betta’.” No, seriously: it was written just like that. We didn’t stop there, unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) so I can’t confirm…

Packing a Suitcase: an excercise in procrastination

I think I may have managed to conquer the packing. It took most of the day, though, because according to my Twitter, I first started to “think about” packing my suitcase just before lunch yesterday. Here’s what I had by…

A picture is worth a thousand blog posts

There hasn’t been much time for blogging this week. Well, there’s been time for BLOGGING, obviously, because, well, that’s pretty much all I’ve done. But I’ve done so much of it here, here and here that there just hasn’t been time…

No one puts Rubinman in the corner!

A Guest Post from Rubin: WATERGATE

Yo, peeps, Rubinman in da house! Yes, it’s really ME, the R-Man! I’m here because, it’s like, I read Amber’s last entry? The one where she’s whining about me peein on that “radiator”? And it was as I thought. They…

My Life in a List

Absolutely nothing has happened here since The Great Wall of Clothing was removed from my hallway, so this is one of those completely pointless list posts, which I’m pretty sure no one will read anyway, because you’ll all be off…

Rubin’s Surprise

Well, would you look at that: looks like I DIDN’T find anything other than my birthday surprises to write about this week after all! Let’s just pretend I did, OK? I won’t tell if you don’t… Anyway, as I mentioned…

Ask Amber: Fashion, redheads and peeing dogs

Well, folks, The Great Haircut Wars of ’09 have left me feeling wrung out, like a limp rag, and that’s before I’ve even been anywhere NEAR the hairdresser.  So, in a bid to post something that’s NOT directly related to…

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…

The one where I get dog vomit all down my legs

Now, clearly this isn’t the classiest post title I’ve ever come up with in my life, but let it be a warning to you folks: if you have “problems” with vomit (you know, like I DO), you’re going to want…

By Popular Demand: the coat!

Slightly against my better judgement, but because several of you asked to see it: I decided to keep it in the end, after my mum showed me how to tie the neck properly (I had been doing it totally wrong….
