You can’t write nonsense like this and expect me to stay subscribed to your emails.

My parents are moving into a smaller place today, and so I have just taken delivery of a new old toy. Constant companion of my childhood, welcome to my home. We’ll have many years together yet.

I’ve come to work in a hotel lounge, for a change of scenery. I sit down, and suddenly I hear foreign accents all around me. I could be in London, or New York, or anywhere. I relax. My anxiety - the annoying beast I’ve been fighting every single day for months - just melts away. I feel at home. At ease.

I had to find a spot in my city that’s filled with foreigners in order to feel the fluffy-slippers-and-soft-chair comfort of home.

My grandfather moved around ceaselessly his whole life. To the outside observer it seemed to be a compulsion. Perhaps I inherited more from him than just an obsessive need to make lists.

WELCOME BACK TO BNN NEWS, YOUR UP-TO-THE-MINUTE SOURCE FOR EVERYTHING NEWSWORTHY. I’M BRIAN ANDROCONIA AND WE’RE HERE WITH RIVETING NEW UPDATES REGARDING THE DISAPPEARANCE OF FLOWER GH760, LAST SEEN IN THE HENDERSONS’ GARDEN EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. AUTHORITIES CAN’T CONFIRM IF THE FLOWER WAS CUT BY THE HENDERSONS THEMSELVES OR PICKED BY A PASSING STRANGER, NOR DID ANYONE SEE ITS REMOVAL, SO I’LL ACTUALLY JUST BE LISTING OFF NUMEROUS OTHER POSSIBILITIES RANGING FROM THE MILDLY LIKELY TO THE PATENTLY RIDICULOUS, INTERSPERSED WITH MANY INVENTIVE REPHRASINGS OF THE TWO CONCRETE DETAILS WE DO POSSESS, WHICH ARE BASICALLY THAT THERE USED TO BE A FLOWER AND NOW IT’S GONE, NONSTOP FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE AND CALLING THOSE THINGS UPDATES. GOD IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE A JOURNALIST.

I don’t feel smug about not having a TV. I feel grateful. (Grateful that we are too disorganised to go out and buy one, I mean.) Just reading Twitter is painful enough some days.

The Lego movie has JUST opened at cinemas in South Africa. It’s tough living down here sometimes. But actually, it’s good timing for me, because just last week I took delivery of all my childhood Lego from my parents. I am going to build SO MUCH stuff, you guys.

Children, this is what Windows looked like 20 years ago. This is my very first computer, which I bought in 1994, using my student loan.

As you can see, it still works. It has a whopping great 210MB hard-drive, so I probably won’t be using it to store my iTunes library.

It’s cool, guys; we’ve put our heads together and come up with a use for the Yellow Pages.

The operating system relies on sensors in the headset which detect electric signals in the dog’s brainwaves. Technology from an in-built processing device then analyses the signal patterns and deciphers them into distinct feelings like anger, curiosity or tiredness. Sample sentences such as “I’m hungry – but I don’t like this!” or “I’m curious who that is?” will be programmed into the device and emitted through a loudspeaker.
