James Reviews The Rio Games From The Comfort Of His Sofa

As I write this I’m half aware of some brightly coloured fruit and vegetables dancing in front of me. I’ve checked the ingredients of the M&S “Spirit of Summer” Cocoa and Pecan fudge that I’m currently snacking on (a welcome and undeserved gift from Mrs Proclaims who just returned from the afore-mentioned M&S), to see…

James Reviews James Proclaims

I haven’t written a ‘James Reviews’ for a while. The original concept was that I’d write reviews about stuff that no-one really needs, or at least stuff no-one really needs a review of. Obviously everyone should own drumstick pencils and a Jedi dressing gown. But the trouble is that there’s only so often you can…

James Reviews Sudoku Themed Toilet Paper

What do you get the man who has everything? Probably not Sudoku Loo Roll. He’ll already have some if he’s got everything and no-one needs two rolls of Sudoku themed toilet paper. But if you’re trying to buy a gift for the man who never really wants anything, then Sudoku Loo Roll could well be…

James Reviews a 16kg kettlebell

Unlike that enormous weights bench, which sat in your parents’ garage long after you left home, this kettlebell is relatively easy to transport. A cautionary note,…

James Reviews – Fifty plastic money bags

Do you get really stressed when you’re at the checkout, and always pay with a note, even when you’ve got the exact change in your pocket? Then these plastic money bags are absolutely essential! Because inevitably you’re going to have lots of loose change lying around. And that can be annoying.

James Reviews – A Jedi Themed Dressing Gown

This dressing gown is a must have. When you’ve had a tough day fighting Sith lords and Stormtroopers, there’s nothing better than kicking back and relaxing in one of these luxurious robes. Equally if the force isn’t quite as strong with you, or you’re now in your mid-thirties and therefore ‘too old to begin the…

James Reviews – Drumstick Pencils

Could this be another new feature on James Proclaims? A feature where I regularly review stuff that you may, but probably won’t, find useful? Only time will tell. Today I’m reviewing something that I got given as a Secret Santa gift in December 2013. I am reviewing these drumstick pencils.
