While shopping yesterday, we happened to go down the American Sweets aisle of Tesco, and the kids spotted these Beanboozled jelly beans. They suggested we eat them and film the results.

I am too much of an idiot to say no. (more…)

Describe to me a helpful manatee flipping pancakes? No? OK…

Act our a famous leprechaun throwing a javelin? Give up? Right…

Draw an obnoxious koala travelling back in time.

Sounds like a bunch of mad challenges, right? Well, these are all things for you to describe, act out or draw in RANDOMISE, a party game that combines Pictionary, Charades and Articulate/Taboo, but takes things to an absurd, abstract, awesome new level of nonsense.

So, yesterday, as an end-of term treat, we decided to take the kids to Stockeld Park, Wetherby for some sunny day shenanigans. It just so happened that I’d managed to blag free opening day VIP event tickets, but that’s neither here nor there. I’m not going to give a biased review just because they gave me free BBQ, and plied Gem with wine in an actual wine glass (none of that plastic cup nonsense). No siree.

Although why someone would put a crown on a sausage is beyond me. To be fair, I’d just eat the sausage. (more…)

So, it’s Election Day today and the interweb is awash with folk nagging on about using your vote, like some terribly dull politics student trying to make themselves seem more important because they got up early to write an X on a piece of paper. I will of course be making my mark later this evening, but I really don’t like being nagged about it.

What do I do when folk nag me? I take the piss of course…

and thus…

Hiya, I’m really bloody knackered today. In my wisdom I decided to indulge my geeky urges and spend yesterday in Headingley, Leeds at The 7th Leeds Zombie Film Festival.

I am now gonna try and offer a summary of the day’s movies, but if I nod off halfway through it’s because I had to get up at half 6 today for work so ultimately the whole shebang was a very silly idea.

One day, Mr and Mrs Bear went out for a walk. The tragic events that occurred next might shock you, terrify you or leave a bad taste in your mouth.

It certainly left a bad taste in mine.
