One handed sausage roll

You know when you’re eating a baguette & as you bite it all the filling falls out the end. Well as I can only use one hand to feed with, I was forced to find a new way of holding it together. Use some wooden stakes to pin the thing together. If you don’t have … Continue reading “One handed sausage roll”

A pork & leek sausage baguette with ketchup & mustard, pinned together using wooden stakesYou know when you’re eating a baguette & as you bite it all the filling falls out the end. Well as I can only use one hand to feed with, I was forced to find a new way of holding it together.

Use some wooden stakes to pin the thing together. If you don’t have these then standard cocktail stick would suffice.

Broken wing

Went to the hospital on Tuesday, 9 days after my accident. Turns out, I actually fractured the metacarpal to my index finger. The hand specialist gave me 2 options.

Went to the hospital on Tuesday, 9 days after my accident. Turns out, I actually fractured the metacarpal to my index finger. The hand specialist gave me 2 options. Go to Wrexham Park Hospital on Thursday & have a metal plate & wires put in my hand or remain in it’s current cast for a further 3 weeks before another examination.

The idea of surgery & risk of infection didn’t appeal to me, so I’m going for the suck it & see option. Plus the more scar tissue, the stiffer my hand will become. Hopefully nature will take it’s course & my hand will heal, otherwise it’s a re-brake & the plate goes in – aaaaargh!

Fingers crossed (left hand only of course)!

The Rasmus suck

From watching MTV2 last night, I learnt that The Rasmus were booed & bottled & subsequently left the stage after 2 songs at this years Reading Festival. Which I thought was funny because they suck! …with all that “I’ve been waiting”, Foreigner rip-off rubbish. AND their website is rubbish! Frames? Pah!

iPod vs. The Cassette

The poor old cassette got pushed out the window as soon as MP3 reared it’s head. Now it’s all iPod this & Metallica lawsuit that. This site has some good points on the subject. It’s nicely done & is also relatively amusing.

Pull your finger out

Went on a canal boat trip at the weekend in Bath. Had a great time relaxing, drinking, laughing & general messing about. Sunday though I managed to get my hand stuck under a rope with a 20 ton “Berwyn” the barge attached to the other end & dislocated my finger at the knuckle. So there … Continue reading “Pull your finger out”

My hand - it's hard to see, but it is very swollenWent on a canal boat trip at the weekend in Bath. Had a great time relaxing, drinking, laughing & general messing about. Sunday though I managed to get my hand stuck under a rope with a 20 ton “Berwyn” the barge attached to the other end & dislocated my finger at the knuckle.

So there I was rolling around on the floor with my clicking finger pointing the wrong way. Managed to pop it back in shortly after & a couple of hours later, as luck would have it – I bumped into a physiotherapist. So at the moment at least, it looks like no serious damage has been done & so for now, I’m practising left handed mouse operation.

The filming of “Personal”

“Personal” is a short movie made by a friend of mine, Nicole, who asked if my flat could be used as the main location of the 4-day shoot. This was a big decision to make as of course, my home & personal space was to be completely invaded by up to 15 strangers. But with … Continue reading “The filming of “Personal””

“Personal” is a short movie made by a friend of mine, Nicole, who asked if my flat could be used as the main location of the 4-day shoot. This was a big decision to make as of course, my home & personal space was to be completely invaded by up to 15 strangers. But with the consent of my landlord & my interest in the industry we opted in.

With filming due to start on Saturday morning, the preceding week was filled with uncertainty. I kept myself busy taking pictures of local pubs with pool tables & a garden. Friday night felt like the top of a roller coaster – the big rush was eminent. I didn’t know whether I should be worried about my home or excited about the experience & there was no going back now.
