‘You want to go get some lunch?’
‘Hmm… thanks for asking, but I need to go for a run today.’
‘You ran yesterday!’
‘So why not skip it today and come to lunch with us?’
‘Can’t. If I don’t run, it’ll catch up.’
‘Dare I ask?’ Continue reading

Ransomology Weekly Newsletter No.3
February 2, 2015
Hello Cherished Readers!
You will recall no doubt that the hot topic of last week’s newsletter was:
The Ransomology About page stinks – I need to make it not stink.
But I begin to despair this may not be possible. Anyone who read my latest post Confessions of an Art School Douche Bag, will know that I have made a SHOCKING discovery – I am apparently NOT an artisan of language, and so not an artist capable of making great art with my words. Continue reading
Hello. My name is Steve Ransom, and I am still a drug addict. It has been 25 minutes since my last drink. Yes, I confess, after 30 days clean, without a drop, I decided that it was time to find out what happens when I finally have coffee again. Today, is Consumption Day.
Ransomology Weekly Newsletter No. 2
Jan 20, 2015
As announced last week, the Ransomology About page needs work. Foolishly, I sought input from some seasoned bloggers before writing About versions 1 to 97, and was given the dubious advice that no matter what happens, it must be short.

Ransomology Weekly Newsletter No. 1
January 13, 2015.

It is now day 6 with no coffee. I realise it’s been a while between posts, but since my last at the 72 hour mark, there has been little to report except a gradual decrease in the physical symptoms; that is, I have gradually become less tired, my body has become less sore, and I have started feeling less despondent. Continue reading
So I have my first confession to make – I’m fully hyped for the quitting as I said, and am greatly enjoying the unique perspective and opportunities for in-depth analysis of addictive behaviors that it affords. It’s just that I’m having a liiiitle trouble with some of the finer details of the process; specifically, the part about not drinking the coffee. Continue reading
Ok, so here’s the thing. There’s been a small snag in the coffee quitting process. That is to say…as yet…I haven’t actually quit. I KNOW, I know, but hear me out.
I was all set to quit, and excited about it, really; fully hyped for the quitting I was. Continue reading
By their late 20’s most people with male pattern baldness have worked out that a closely shaved head, especially when it is accompanied by similar length facial hair, is quite attractive to a significant pool of women (and men for that matter); that is unless you are part Neanderthal, or have a head shaped like one of those Easter Island statues
