What’s Sneddon up to?

He’s actually a really successful songwriter now, he wrote stuff for Lana Del Rey and loads of others.

(I’m sorry this isn’t a very funny answer but hopefully it is informative).

Don’t really know what I was looking for when I posited the question tbh, thanks mate.

Spoke to him on the phone in my old call centre once. Seemed like a nice lad. Failed security though so no time for much chat. Felt a bit bad failing him when I could recognise his voice.

What time is it? It’s Puke-o Time!

While I would never let water from The Thames near my mouth, I thought that the river was actually reasonably clean these days? Wikipedia not much help tbh tbf…


#19

this happened 3 years ago or something. Outside of the window for near death experience storytelling (WFNDES)

I shared this story with my boss who reckons him and his street urchin mates used to swim in the Thames all the time as a kid (the tidal Thames as well, not the posh bit above Teddington).
