I have been re-reading a lot my blog posts lately, and I’ve come to realise that somehow I have lost sight of the initial point of the blog – probably because I was getting something else out of it. I had decided to write the blog to try and gain support for a crowd funder venture so that I could afford to have a work hiatus and retrain in front end web development. So I perhaps I should tell you why I wanted to do this.
Well hello and welcome to another edition of the life and times of Pappa Carr. It has been a long few days, after a lovely holiday the return to the arduous commute and the less than satisfactory job it leads to have already taken its toll. The plus side, though, is that Lizzy Face and I have started our daddy daughter Fridays again, so we filled ours with spiders, Sainsburys and sensory play.
I’m a fairly tolerant person – not really of people, most people get on my nerves. So do cities, customer service tends to get me riled as does the price of public transport and actually I’m not a huge fan of the weather either. Come to think of it, I’m actually quite an angry irritable guy at times but when it comes to peoples beliefs I’m open to anything. So long as what you do does not cause any injury to anyone else believe away, Philosophically speaking I sit in a sphere of belief that there must be something more than what we know, but a strong conviction that any religion, organised or not doesn’t hold the answer. Anyone who claims to definitely ‘know’ any of the answers to the big questions is, in my opinion, almost certainly wrong- but if it makes them feel better about their earthly struggle then hey dude, fill your fucking boots. After living with a teething baby however, I feel reasonably justified in suggesting that any design theorist is full of utter twaddle.
I was recently asked in a blog comment about the decisions we will make regarding Lizzy Face’s diet, with particular reference to the battle between the veggie Fergotron and the carnivorous Pappa Carr. Uncharacteristically for us, there has so far been very little debate as to how to handle this...so far.
I have struggled for something to write about over the last week, and that alongside some coding practice has meant I’ve not updated the blog at all which is a shame as there seemed to be some momentum building. While searching for inspiration, and after exhausting many potential post titles that just felt like writing for the sake of writing I realised that the inspiration was right there in front of me – The Lizzy Face! So I thought I would write about some of my favourite Lizzyisms.
