ArticleA Mound of White BonesHits 2514 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 Over the purple mountains to the east lies a forest where nobody ever goes.

ArticleGrubs whores and landminesHits 6345 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 About an hour inside Cambodia we stopped at a roadside establishment that had been spawned simply to service tourists en route to Siem Reap from the border. The staff inside happily accepted any currency and provided change in tattered Cambodian Reals, which resulted in a lot of confused looking tourists - Reals are worth about 3,900 to the US dollar, so even if people wanted to check their change, they had a hard time because most of them had handed over Thai baht in the first place. After a few weeks in Cambodia, you either become an expert in tri-currency conversion, or lose a lot of cash.ArticleHalf-man, half-biscuitHits 9272 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 One of the most popular types of monster throughout history has been the half-man, half-something-else. A good examples of a scary half-men creatures are the werewolf (half-man, half-wolf), minotaur (half-man, half bull) and zombie. Zombie? I hear you cry. Yes - half-man, half-dead. On the whole it seems like taking half of a man away and adding half of something else creates an evil entity, bent on death and destruction. There are notable exceptions though, which I'll talk about in a moment.NewsJournalsHits 4437 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 Writing things down in a little book could be a dying art...ArticleLittle archaeologist storyHits 4069 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 A short story written for a java game I wrote some years ago.ArticleMemories between 4 and 6Hits 1985 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 My very first memory in life is a lie. I'm about 3 years old and we've just arrived at my Grandmother's house, it is sunny and I'm wearing shorts and a striped T-shirt. My Grandmother is waiting on her lawn to meet us with our dog - a large Irish Setter called Finbar. Finbar is excited to see us and runs over to us, almost knocking me over, then licking my face with joy.ArticleRiskHits 5691 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 I'm not terribly scared of electrical storms, I was never traumatised as a child by stories of giants in the clouds being angry, or any other such nonsense. During thunder and lightning I like to go outside, to the top of the nearest hill and watch the show. I don't think being hit is very likely.

Nice place, distinct lack of crime and any rough edges"ArticleSleepHits 2981 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 An article about sleep that I wrote, re-found recently on my hard-drive.ArticleSuzy's Bar, TakasakiHits 23159 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 Ah, the memories.

The four figures huddled around a beer stained table concentrated upon the tiles in front of them. The game was known as Lucky Mary in these parts and many a man had lost a fortune on the turn of a not so lucky tile. Halgar Blacktooth frowned deeply as he looked again at the images of the four winds from the east in his hand, this was a good hand, but his final tile, the six of goblins which he had just picked up, didn't help at all. BlogThe GeorgeHits 2556 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 So we're walking through the streets in the rain. I'm upset already as we spent a valuable 30 minutes of drinking time watching some god-awful move-to-spain-and-fix-up-an-old-house programme. The rain really doesn't improve our moods as we splash through puddles and scowl into the wind.ArticleThe Hilton Hotel, In East Croydon, EnglandHits 4538 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 My idea was to return to the hotel and sip a Martini and smoke a cigarette before retiring. I was dismayed to find that there was a large Xmas party occurring, and so the bar was rather busy, the staff looked harassed. ArticleThe Quest for HashishHits 5766 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 I met a strange man a few nights ago in a downtown bar - strange mainly because he seemed to be wearing home-made clothes and make-up. During the course of our chit-chat conversation I happened to ask him what he did for a living. 'I grow grass.' He said.ArticleThirty-OneHits 2713 | Last Modified 2007-05-31 Written on my 31st birthday, I just found this article and thought I'd publish it again.
