Hello, me again.
I have recently become aware of some people on the Internet who I think are excellent. The first is a man called James Ward. I don’t know who he is. He may be a comedian or a writer or he may work in Waterstones. It doesn’t matter. He is my new favourite.
He is on the Twitter which is where I first encountered him having a conversation with radio presenter Geoff Lloyd. It was an excellent conversation about how Geoff had died. I liked the cut of this man’s gib, so I followed him and in doing so, navigated to his blog.
It is wonderful. It is all about boring things and, quite often, posters he has seen. I thoroughly recommend reading all of it – I’m now back to November 2010. The thought process and over-analytical approach to the mundane is very similar to how my mind works, except that Mr James Ward writes down his thought process for idiots like me to read.
I told him that I liked it on the Twitter. I’m not just saying this, have evidence:
As I am incapable of original thought, I daresay I shall be drawing inspiration from his blog whilst hopefully stopping slightly short of copying his style outright.
Anyway, I don’t really have any more to say about James Ward, just go and follow him on the Twitter and read his blog.
The next thing I found which is wonderful was actually via James Ward. I know, I’m like a fucking stalker or something.
This is a blog by a man called Peter Fletcher, in which he logs all of his sneezes. Highlights include:
two thousand, eight hundred and thirty-eight

This is a level of obsession which one can only admire. One day I hope to start a project of this calibre. I have given genuine consideration to starting a Flickr photoblog of my poos. The Cons currently outweigh the Pros:
|It would amuse and occupy me||I would need a Flickr Pro account to upload more than 200 photos|
|It is fucking disgusting|
Anyway, I think that’s all I have to say about Sneezecount as well. Bye.
