Fyse's Floating Face

Contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly innacurate…

The death knell of nobility…

Seated on a bench waiting for an old school friend, I hummed quietly (and slightly dementedly) to myself. Situated by a junction in the centre of town, cars swished by as I eyed a sweeper truck crawling along the curb toward me. Peering over the dashboard, the driver guided his furiously spinning brushes through the […]

Tagged for a meme…

As I mentioned previously, Kerrie tagged me to continue a meme, and so here it is. The game is to write about five from the list, then add one to the end. If I could be a scientist . . . that would mean I did alright in my exams. Unfortunately that isn’t very likely. […]

‘Mom’s Cancer’ – A comic strip

Just a very quick post to direct you all to an online comic strip called Mom’s Cancer. It’s tells the tale a family’s fight against their mother’s illness, and is extraordinarily worth reading. Apparently it will only be online for a limited period, since it is shortly to be published in book form. I’m toying […]

eBay the Moxie Cinebar…

My readership is divided into two sections; those who know me directly, live in England and don’t blog themselves, and those that do have blogs and also read ‘The Moxie Blog‘. Since half these people know all about the auction already, and half of them probably don’t care very much, this post will serve little […]

This is a public announcement..

The Floating Face would like to extend sincere apologies to anyone suffering technical difficulties recently. Our engineer is currently working hard to correct these faults, but in the meantime visitors may experience symptoms including (but not limited to) text spilling out of containers, mangled layout, lack of style and severe nausea. Anyone still suffering difficulties […]

Hearty recommendations…

Well, again it’s been a whole week between posts. Back in the early days of this blog I used to post practically every day, but perhaps I’m now leaning more toward quality than quantity? You look unconvinced. In today’s post, I bring you three hearty recommendations. The first is for a book I have just […]

Seasonal salutations…

Just realised that I never wished my beloved readership a Merry Christmas, so this is a quick post from my phone. The irritation of typing on a phone keypad, even one with predictive text, is such that my message of Yuletide joy will be brief. But it’s the thought that counts. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! And that […]

Christmas shopping…

With three days left till Christmas, and being a male of average behaviour, my mind has finally turned to seasonal shopping. While normally this would leave me an ample three days to scour local shops and business for suitable gifts, I depart early tomorrow for a family Christmas in Harrogate, Yorkshire. Therefore, today is all […]

Ahurghhackhaarucoushk…

Have you ever tried to write down a hacking cough phonetically? It’s not easy, as aptly demonstrated above. I’ve tried on many occasions to capture the essence of a truly gut-wrenching throat-clearing, but never succeeded. What is certain, however, is that ‘ahem’ is woefully inadequate. Interestingly, the word ‘ahem’ has become almost synonymous with a […]

A missing hour & Emily’s return…

I’m rather confused, and slightly concerned, about what exactly happened to the three hours it took me to get home on Friday. I left college at 15:50 and arrived home at 18:50, which makes a three hour journey, yet when I add up the sections of the journey (eg. walking to the station – 25 […]
