Stroke Bloke is on paternity leave and brushing up on modern parenting skills. There’s probably a stroke recovery story in there somewhere.
Anyway, apoplectic.me will be back next week. See you then.
Hi! I think I’m going to change apoplectic.me’s regular posting day to Tuesday.
Over the weekend, there are weekend things to do, and then by Monday all the other things to do have built up and there are regular weekday things to do and I want to do all the things because if I don’t do all the things the to-do list will just get longer and longer for ever and ever amen.
At the end of last week’s post on Democracy, I asked
I was quite pleased with the turnout, although I wouldn’t call it overwhelming. Nevertheless, we have a decision and I intend to carry out the wishes of the apoplectic public. Although I suppose that after my triumph, I should resign from the blog and let another blogger pick up the pieces. Someone with high level experience, and a knowledge of dated British indie music and puns. And a mum, preferably. A mum of kids. A mum of kids who can maintain the high moral tone of the blog. But who fits the bill??? Continue reading Monarchy
apoplectic.me is on vacation this week.
I’ll look forward to writing to you next week. But in the meantime, please do take the opportunity to catch up with these recent scribblings by a bloke three years removed from a catastrophic haemorrhagic stroke:
All from a uniquely stroke-y angle.
Till next week…
A quick flick through my Penguin Dictionary of Modern Humorous Quotations reveals that no one has ever said anything funning about fishing.
So, I’ve not gone fishing, but apoplectic.me is taking the week off – things are busy around here. In the meantime, why not check out Nerd Bait’s site in preparation for the première of their new short-form concept album, The Tail of The Wee Mermannie, at the Edinburgh International Book Festival on 25th August?
apoplectic.me will be back on 17th August. Till then, have a great week!
Hello, Dear Reader. And belatedly, Happy Stroke Month. To mark the occasion, the Apoplexy Store has re-opened.

A massively smaller selection of stuff, but much pithier, I think. The bad news is, given what’s been cut, you’ll have to hack my phone if you’re looking for a t-shirt of Stroke Bloke looking lithe in a dress.
Want to show non-profit solidarity with stroke survivors and their carers
this Stroke Awareness Month?
Check out the all-new, not-shit Apoplexy Store.
Welcome to the new, all-singing, all-dancing apoplectic.me. (Disclaimer: May still not sing or dance.) Please get in touch if you have any thoughts on the new design , and particularly if there are any features you think should be added.
It’s time for a wallowing post. It’s been a while, and I’ll be brief.
Good news and bad news. Or maybe, good news and good news.
The bad news is that, starting with the Monday, 9 September post, apoplectic.me will be moving to a weekly posting schedule, every Monday. The good news: while this means half the apoplexy, as we approach Stroke-iversary, there will be twice the quality.
If that’s not enough apoplexy for you, don’t forget that if you leave a comment or otherwise expressly request, you’ll receive extra material and easter eggs from time to time in email notices of new posts. Unless you wish to opt out.
