End of the world?

If you have read my blog for a while you may be aware that Mr Realdoc is a bit of an apocalypse junkie so at the moment he is in his element, hoarding cornflakes, making plans to farm the lawn and investigating how one gets a gun license. In his opinion a blink of an eye will take us from the collapse of a number of large financial institutions to a Survivors type scenario in which he stars as the one member of the human race with the foresight to make sure no-one will go without a decent breakfast.

I think if we hoard stuff bigger, meaner people will come and take it off us so I am using my last days wisely by comparing different types of gin. (this is the best!) and watching all the extra bits in my DVD box sets (David Tennant's video diary - yummers!)

PS No-one commented on babydoc's little sylvanian going up Everest, he really did you know!

Back from the Grave.....3

Right, first sorry for deserting the blog for so long. No real excuses I just ran out of things to say. I have been reading all your blogs and listening to a variety of podcasts so I think I'm more or less up to date with the goings-on. Meeting some old friends last weekend has given me a kickstart to try again so here goes. An update

  • I am back being a proper doctor again...hurrah. Medical management was not for me and doctors are stroppy bastards generally so it was rather like herding cats.

    • Mr realdoc had an epiphany on holiday due to this place and now spends a lot of time throwing himself at the North Atlantic in a vain attempt to reverse the aging process. (think King Canute in a wetsuit)

      • Teenrealdoc is now taller and gobbier than me and spends a lot of her time trying to convince me why, despite the fact that Angel is hotter, Spike/Buffy is the more romantic pairing.

        • Baby realdoc is now in big school and growing taller and gobbier by the day. The Sylvanians are being a bit neglected despite the fact that one of them, Dusty Evergreen??, recently scaled Mt. Everest.....no really!


        • Ballykissarse is in the grip of a cultural renaissance with a modern art gallery, an experimental theatre company and an indie rock venue all opening since I last spoke to you.**

        • I am a little older, more gnarly and saggy, but still in search of the perfect post-modern sitcom, life-changing novel or piece of music. I have watched all 5 series of The Wire and was blown away. I watched the entire run of Bonekickers and wasn't. Although Hugh Bonneville is my new unlikely sex symbol after Lost in Austen. I am listening to Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver and as a result will probably buy a lumberjack shirt and move into the shed. So I'll sign off now and hope to keep this updated at least once a week, laters.

        **********UPDATE********* Doing a pathetic round of the blogroll to drum up some business but I can't seem to comment on a lot of blogs at the moment. But I'll keep trying.
