Hi there, don’t mind me, I’m just typing away on my phone (115g) and eating a bag of beefy seabrooks (35g). Oh, and also, I’m writing a review of Ozeri’s Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale, a lovely shiny scale for measuring the weight of all the things you bake or cook or other chef words.


So, yeah it’s a set of digital weighing scales. You might have seen me using them already when I made lemonade with the kids (and some lemons) last week. You’ve got basically a shiny 6″ diameter stainless steel dish for putting your stuff on. Put your stuff on top and you get the weight showing up on the little digital LCD display. Which is nice. If you don’t know what a weighing scale does, maybe you shouldn’t be allowed in the kitchen, basically. Read the rest of this entry »

One of the first couple of reviews I started doing back when I started doing reviews on my blog (as opposed to just random nonsense that nobody bothered reading) I did the first two books in this series of fairy tale based adventure books by Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil and A World Without Princes. Well, the final part of the trilogy is out now and I figured, why not complete the set by reading the books and telling you I liked it. So here we go.


Ooh, and we have a trailer for the new book too. I know you lot like trailers.

Hello. It’s me again. No, come back, I’m sorry.
Anyway, shut up. I’m reviewing another awesome T-shirt from the Mecca of obscure geeky tees, Tostodora.co.uk

So, yeah, have a look…


No, I don’t know what’s going on with my hair either.

Hey everyone, it’s time for a video review, and my first ever unboxing video. I know how all you internet people like unboxing videos. Sure, I’m unboxing a box of cereal, but beggars can’t be choosers or space cowboys.


This time around it’s Freedom Cereals Ltd’s Keep Me Going breakfast cereal, which promises to be healthier and nicer than all the other cereals, despite healthy and nice being polar opposites, as far as any food I eat is concerned.

Hey you lot, you alright? Glad to hear it.
Well, I’m busy reading books like mad again because someone with a beard thought it would be a good idea to start reviewing books on my blog again, after a few months off. I have been more picky in my selection though, no confusing gimpy handed historical novels or whatever.


So, the first book I’m reading is the new edition of Truckers – The first book of the Nomes by Terry Pratchett. From what I gather, the best/most popular of Terry’s work are getting rereleased in bright new colours in an attempt to drag the kids away from their xboggles and playstrapons to read a bit of good ol’ literature.
