Things you might need to know about LousyNick...

He can’t walk past a bookstore without going inside and buying something (he even spent a stretch working in one just for the employee discount). He is a terrible, terrible dancer, and should avoid karaoke at all costs (but doesn't). He loves science and skepticism and a good debate down in the pub. And he’s rumoured to be the second laziest bastard in the world (but he tries harder). He doesn’t give a damn who won the cricket or the rugby or the amateur curling, unless he has money on it (and he always does).

Also, he seems to have developed an annoying tendency to refer to himself in the third person. He’s wandering whether he should see someone about that.

Gambling (in a decent way, honest)
Random acts of weirdness and insanity

Dog Day Afternoon: Happiness, Hula Hoops, Huskies

Some days you dance for the amusement of a drone, while bemused puppies watch. These things happen.

It’s called Puppy Park for a reason. And today, that reason is obvious.There are canines of all kinds roaming around. English bulldogs and French bulldogs loping around lazily. A Jack Russell terrier is running around at a furious pace, a tiny brown-and-w...
