Away days are always fun, and my friend, he had a luck that his club owners were paying the bus for all the away fans. It's a smaller club, so not a lot of people are going to away games, but those that are going are all quite insane.

 

In the beginning they were acting normal, they were traveling for free so they knew to respect that. However, after a little bit of time, they started doing all sorts of crazy things. They were always drunk and used to get naked on the bus. They stopped the…

Two of my friends and I, we had a rough period not so long ago. Our hearts were broken as we all broke up with our girlfriends. Somehow, every single one of them was going to art school, and because of that, we started our new philosophy. At first, it was just a few rules, it was forbidden for us to date any girl from art school and even to hang out with those people.

 

After our brains fell apart, and we couldn’t live without alcohol, we started blaming people from art school for all our…

Who knew the horrors that lurk in your own bathroom? I had no clue that the shower head, one of those nice massagers with different strengths, was leaking from the joint and squirting straight up to the ceiling in an arc. Of course, ​it was the day I decided to do girl shaving, so the water was running longer than usual. When I finished and opened the shower door, I was shocked to find it literally raining from the ceiling. Everything was soaked, from the light fixture, the mirror, the counter,…

Over the many years I had my menagerie, my male Zebra Finch, Cheepie, was among my favourites. Abandoned by his parents as a 3-day hatchling, my mom wasn’t able to cope with raising him, so I adopted him and became mother bird for three weeks until he was weaned. With feedings every three hours, it was just like taking care of a baby. I kept him in a makeshift nest in the bathroom on a heating pad. The moment I turned on the light, he’d wiggle his tiny body and open his beak. I used a tiny…

I’ve always been an animal lover, and have been considered by many as a fur parent. At first, it used to be only cats, but after moving back to the US, I evolved from being a cat fur mother to the female version of Dr. Doolittle. It never started off that way, but I soon discovered that I was a walking animal magnet. Strays and waifs magically found their way to me, whether it was the lost rabbit chowing down on the neighbor’s lawn, the sad-looking stray cat hanging around the yard, or a…

Well, I guess that it's a normal thing for every man to have that one mate that never liked football. Since my best friend was always a loser (like all of us, but he thought he was cool), he never watched football because he was more into death metal and super heroes. Now, it is okay not to watch something that you don’t find interesting, but he used to make himself an idiot when he tries to talk about football.

 

“Yeah, if you ask me, best players in the world are Ronaldinho, David Beckham…

When my then SO and I decided to emigrate to the US from the UK, it was a major decision that also included taking our three cats. Our fourth cat had a chronic respiratory condition, so she couldn’t get a vet’s certificate, and we had to leave her with some relatives. The transition was supposed to be a breeze. After all, we planned everything, down to the tranquilisers from the vet to give the cats to sedate for the flight. So on the day, I gave them their tablets, thinking they’d be relaxed…

When someone tells me his business plan, I don’t look at him as a person that knows shit about business. Cause in my neighborhood business is not fancy suits, expensive cars and lots of money, it’s just a bunch of useless ideas that will never make you money, things that Trotters will probably do. For example, few guys made a business out of a simple idea like beating the shit out of somebody’s teacher. So if you don’t like your grades, you know where to come! It’s simple as that.

 

Well, in…

Drinking with my friends can, in theory, be dangerous sometimes. We can do all sorts of bad stuff for no particular reason. For example, my little brother smashed his head with a broken bottle a few days ago. Nobody knew why he did it, but sometimes things just get ugly and violent. And you regret it tomorrow morning, but when the night comes, you’ll do something crazy again. That’s the way things are going around here.

 

Now, sometimes, when nothing bad is happening, you can see something…

As a cat lover (yes, you can call me a crazy cat-girl), I’ve had felines all my life. My mother was the same way, and like her, I had more than one cat. At one time I had seven, and it was both fun and chaotic. Each one had their own personalities, but one of my favourites was a green-eyed tortoiseshell tabby. Koo-Koo had the feisty attitude of a prima donna, and proudly earned her nickname, “Bitchy-Koo”. In human terms, she’d be the leader of an all-girl gang. She may have been the smallest of…
