Welcome to all faithful (and unfaithful!) readers. I am relentlessly trying to conquer the Internet with my pen (eee... keyboard) and hopefully bring you a few laughs in the process. I write on whatever takes my fancy, mostly about food, books and ridiculous social behaviors. I'm not much of a salesman so my lenses are mostly for reading, not for shopping. This leaves me starving, but adds to their quality. Subjects you'll NEVER catch me writing about include Lady Gaga, celebrities doing anything and how much I love Christ because I don't (and here, dear Christians, you have a chance of showing your famous tolerance off by not burning me at the stake). Enjoy and if you like it, come back for more!

    If you are an unsuspecting tourist in Porto, Portugal, the zoo won't be an obvious place you'll be pointed to. Everybody will try to sign you up for one of innumerable Douro cruises, or wine cellar trips, and if you ask...

    10 things I hate about the Internet

    It provides hours and hours of fun. It gives you an answer to every question in 0.08 seconds average. It lets you have your say, whatever the subject. It connects, promotes, enlightens. Gosh, the Internet is great. But...
