intermittent since 2001


This is what happens… You’re talking about nothing in particular with your kids and they see something online, like a fake Superman poster for the new film ‘Man of Steel‘, and they say, ‘that’s a funny name for a film, they should do one for SpongeBob SquarePants called Man of Sponge’. So I say, ‘I…

About Lakrisal

I just got back from a weekend in Iceland with Mrs Snappy and some friends. What an amazing place. Incredible sites to see and things to eat. A weekend is just not enough time and we only explored a tiny corner of the country. Perhaps we will return once more to explore that strange land….

Bye bye Bush

A few memories of Bush House can be read here.


I worked in Shoreditch once before having left the BBC for the glamour of the outside world. We were tucked a little way up Kingsland Road and I’d not really been around this neck of East London before. Unusually I explored the local area very little and never really got tha familiary with anything other than…

An open letter of complaint to Swizzels-Matlow

Dear Messers Swizzel and Matlow I have just opened one of your Swizzels-Matlow Double Lollies Dip. I was quite enjoying a bit of retro sweet goodness when I happened upon across a sugar encrusted long brunette hair, not the sort of thing you expect to find in an item of confection. I am positive that…

Did you think I’d forgotten about you, interwebs?

You always have time for a bit of social networking right? Especially when you’re working on the interwebs? Wrong. When you’re working so hard that your kids forget what you look like it seems that my old pals Facebook and Twitter are taking a bit of  a back seat! It’s been a while since I…
