I grew up in the sleepy little Suffolk country side town of Stowmarket, and underwent an education that to me seemed an absolute waste of time. Although with that wonderful tool known as hindsight, my reading and writing skills would have served me well in the writing of this book. I should have taken the trouble and given the teachers my full undivided attention and not the girls sitting next to me, while behind me was always the wall. Yes I was a back of c

Life Of An Idiot
Life Of An Idiot is one year in my little boring life. Inspired by the film director, Kevin Smith, I started a blog, I figured my life was far more boring than his, and it is. This book, a series of blog posts edited into book form, was written between Summer 2009 and Winter 2010, it is terribly boring, and full of grammatical errors, I was going through a, strange, period in which I was obsessed. Life Of An Idiot is book one in a trilogy. It’s a terribly dull book, I always figured that biographies by famous folk, people who have led interesting lives is all well and good, but I’m more interested in the unremarkable people of history, what was life like for them? What did they think of their times? For that reason this book, and the next two, exist, I want to record, for prosperity, heh, my own thoughts and opinions on life, and look back many years from now and see if I still agree, or not.

Letters from an Expatriate in Europe
Tagore wrote these letters nearly three decades before becoming the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. They give an in-depth view of Victorian England through the eyes of an Indian and a Bengali. The author drew flak from his own critics for his dissections of the Anglo-Bengali and English psyches. His words are as relevant and enjoyable now as they were then … The bard wrote at the conclusion of his sixth letter, "Then the Sun-god having contained his thousand rays laid out his tired head on the bed of multitudinous clouds leaning on sunset's shadowy peak and closed his sleepy crimson eyes; the birds returned to their respective nests. The lowing herd headed for the cow-house tracing the cowboy's steps. We began our journey for London." They were returning to London from a day's boat trip. Not the Bard of Avon but seventeen-year-old Rabindranath Tagore. His letters to his older brother Jyotirindranath give an in-depth view of Victorian England through the ey

The grit or "sleep" in one's eyes upon waking is supposed to be the result of the Sandman's work the previous evening. In Hans Christian Andersen's 1841 folk tale "Ole Lukøje" recorded the Sandman, named Ole Lukøje, by relating dreams he gave to a young boy in a week through his magical technique of sprinkling dust in the eyes of the children.Andersen wrote:There is nobody in the world who knows so many stories as Ole-Luk-Oie, or who can relate them so nicely. In the evening, while the children are seated at the table or in their little chairs, he comes up the stairs very softly, for he walks in his socks, then he opens the doors without the slightest noise, and throws a small quantity of very fine dust in their eyes, just enough to prevent them from keeping them open, and so they do not s
