Listen, I bow to no one in my love for ABBA. But this image is simply unacceptable.
What an unusual chess set.
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.
Saw this on Twitter. Best thing ever? Best thing ever.
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. Of course gay people should be allowed to get married. But I must say I have been given pause by the powerful arguments made by this oven glove. I’m in a tizzy now. My whole worldview has been challenged. So much to think about.
Ride were one of my most beloved bands in my long-vanished youth. They’re performing again, which has set my lower lip a-tremble. Here’s a killer version of Seagull.
A lovely video about the upcoming referendum on equal marriage in Ireland.
