Please, not the spa
Help me out here, readers. I don't get spas. The culture of enforced relaxing is something I've never quite understood, especially because none of the things one does at a spa seems in any way relaxing . Do you actually know anyone who has been to a spa? Ha...

I'm angry. Deal with it.
Being angry is fun. I actively enjoy it (sometimes), although I understand that there must be consequences, as with most things. But I think getting a bit angry is good for us - wouldn't you agree?  Wider society is impossible - on the one hand it wants us ...

Winter sun is overrated
At this time of year you can't sit through an advert break without being invited on a holiday. Cheap Disneyland trips for young families. Luxurious tropical retreats for discerning adults. Boat trips only for old people. Many viewers, it seems, are seduced ...

Here it is upon us again. New Year's Eve. That went fast didn't it? Rather than feeling daunted, I find I am quite addicted to the hopefulness of setting goals - something many of you will no doubt be torturing yourselves with today. Why must we make it suc...

Lighten up
I am unashamedly moved by Christmas lights. Sometimes to the point of actual tears. Lights in general, really. Street lamps casting their eerie glow in this autumnal (or should that be wintery) fog. The less subtle sugary glare of neon shop signs, arcade ga...

Some things stick for life, not just for Christmas
To those who leave the house - in fact even those who don't, thanks to the likes of Channel 4 - the following exchange won't come as the shock that it really should. The other day, on the bus, I overhead - impossible not to, they were shouting so proudly - ...

The (angry) mimic
Blog post - Tolerance is futile We all have embarrassing habits, don't we? Googling yourself regularly. Slathering on antibacterial hand gel every time you touch someone for fear of their likely germs. Secretly listening to One Direction every morning (the ...

In her shoes
Blog post - Walking in Heels I've never been able to walk in high heels. Rarely does the powerful click clack of sex and glamour resonate in my wake. I can't even cope with a kitten. Of course I tried that kind of femininity on for size for a period in my y...
