Meanwhile, over on Twitter, the delightful and talented @DocHackenbush has taken one of my silly jokes and cartooned the hell out of it. I’ve always thought it’s a good thing I can’t draw like this because if I could, I would do nothing else and would quickly starve.


Ireland is having a referendum on May 22nd. The issue at stake is marriage equality. I was one hundred per cent certain that I was voting Yes. It seemed like such a no-brainer to me.

My whole worldview has been challenged. So much to think about.


Perfectly normal behaviour.
