Multiple Milestones

This post, the one you’re currently reading (if indeed you are reading this) is the 524th post to appear on James Proclaims. Which is not hugely significant in and of itself, but back on October 30th 2017, I had only written a measly 324 posts. On October 31st, I wrote a post about Halloween. Little…

Unleash Your Lethargy

Sorry that I didn’t Do that thing I said I’d do I didn’t get around to it Because I didn’t want to It’s not that I am lazy (Though you could say that of me) But I really see no purpose In being as busy as a bee It’s hard to really care about A…

Sofa Loafer

Sitting on my sofa Is where I like to be It might not be exciting But it’s just right for me I don’t crave adventure I don’t need a quest I’d rather put my feet up And have a little rest It’s really not the height Of furniture design But for a lazy evening My…

A Triennium Of Proclamations

Today is my third blogiversary. That’s right, I’ve been doing this blogging malarkey for three whole years now. Which seems like a respectable amount of time to have maintained a blog.

Life Style

Desperate Lover

I know I said I’d write A poem about you But I can’t do it now Cos I really need the loo You know that I adore you And I would try to write it first But I just can’t hold it in Cos I’m about to burst My poem will be lovely I’m sure…

James Explains Some Stuff That No-one Asked Him To Explain

Welcome back to another James Explains. It’s been a while since I last donned my explaining socks (which are, essentially, just ordinary socks that I’ve chosen to call ‘explaining socks’), to answer the questions posed to me by other people. People like you. Assuming you are people. Which is the only assumption I can make,…
