Unsubscribing from Email

Unsubscribing from EmailI’m very careful about the boxes I tick when I’m signing up to a new service or for a new product.

Spot the Deliberate Mistake

Whilst out cruising for hookers during daylight hours recently, I was waiting in a car park when a passing car caught my eye.

I’m going to remain positive and hope that someone bothers to follow my scribbled instructions at some point. You never know, it may happen.

Mother of All Trolls

Write for Ninja HedgehogMy mother has always been interested in the workings of Facebook, I’m sure she’s an in-the-closet stalker, she’d fit perfectly as she is tiny. She grew up in Ireland way back in the day when the land and animals were tended by hard working, cracked human hands and has always had a fear of technology until recently. continue reading
