Man Up

There are certain choice phrases that really grate on me. The reasons why they may grate on me are varied: overuse, misquotation, mispronunciation, etc. Some people are obsessed with platitudes and they often get my back up. There’s something hollow in a person using a clichéd saying when somebody has asked for their advice or … Continue reading Man Up

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–A Year on the Blog

A year ago to the day I clicked ‘publish’ on my first official blog post. There had been one other before that; however, that was merely a short introductory post. The first proper one was Shiver Me Timbers…Said No Pirate Ever! where I imparted everyone with a little bit of my knowledge on the subject … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–A Year on the Blog

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Reviewing the Reviewer

Our dear friend, the internet— the gift that keeps on giving—makes virtually (no pun intended) everything possible these days. Want to order takeaway? Go on the internet. Need some shopping?

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Dear Jupiter…

This world is a beautiful place. It has diversity. It has colour. It has life.

It seems to me that there are people out there waging a war on negative emotions and those who experience them. Don’t get … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Smile

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – What Are You Looking For?

In recent times I’ve been postulating over what it is people are generally looking for in a blog. When you get the urge to read what somebody has posted, are you looking for something in particular or is it more to do with the person who wrote it? In the case of the latter, I … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – What Are You Looking For?

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Embrace Thy Kingdom (A Real Life Story)

Title image from Geograph. If you read my previous real life tale, Tea Time, then you’ll know that spontaneity was something of a normalcy amongst my friends and I. Nothing quite hit the spot like venturing to a random place at the last minute in the search of shits and giggles. Expressly because of our … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Embrace Thy Kingdom (A Real Life Story)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Infectious Human Waste

It’s rant time you luck dawgs! This is something I really need to get off my chest because I’m so sick and tired of it. There are many groups of people that I am infuriated by. People who feel the need to insert themselves into certain niches and cliques are usually the most dull and … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Infectious Human Waste

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Biggest Videogame Let-downs

Waaaaaay back in the early days of my blog I ran down what five of my favourite videogames were. It was tough to choose five from the many games that I really enjoy and I have a huge list of potential titles that could have made that list aside from the five I eventually settled … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Biggest Videogame Let-downs
