Who I Am, In Picture Form
Let’s break this down, in case the banner menu across the top isn’t clear enough. This is my blog, it’s where I do most of my blogging. I also tweet, and I do that somewhere around here, and I take Instagram photos that I post in this approximate vicinity. As for the rest of me?
Hi. I’m Felix, I’m 27, and I occasionally write things on the internet.
This is a picture of me. That’s what I look like, with my face and head and legs and the various other bodily appendages that define a basic humanoid form.
I’m a simple creature: proud yet majestic, like a lonesome moose, or some kind of hardworking buffalo.
This is my cat. This picture will tell you that he demands respect, but in reality he demands wet food and then to be left alone.
This is my brother Marcus. He’s interested in what’s going on in the upper right corner of this photo. He’s a detective inspector in the London Metropolitan Police Service. That’s the tough one with all the drug busts and nightsticks.
This is my brother Daniel. He’s – I mean, what is going on in that upper right corner of these photos? He’s an officer in the RAF Regiment. That’s the crazy one with all the yelling and the sleeping in mud.
We all used to look like this, but then things started going wrong. This picture suggests that they both already suspect there to be an underlying problem lurking inside me. Good intuition, guys. Good intuition.
This is my girlfriend Rebecca. She’s kind of cute. My whole family calls her ‘Disney’ and I’m pretty sure birds sing to her when no one else is around.
We’ve been together for ten years. Occasionally she lets me speak; more often, she tells me to be quiet. Also, we’re crazy fashionable.
I like writing stuff. One day I’ll figure out how to actually make some money off of it. Maybe. I’ll try to pop in and write you all some silly little jokes and rants and whatever other nonsensical garbage I find rattling around inside my seldom-used brain. In the meantime however, I’m busy, so as long as you keep the noise to a minimum, you’re free to take a look around. Read it, comment on it, subscribe to it, and generally enjoy all of the world-weary winging that can be found in the land of Grumpy Comments.
Gosh you are SO grumpy looking! NOT! :)
I love your nancy little armament! Such wit and such command of language in so few years. Sigh. You’ll go places, my friend. Don’t ask me where…but places aren’t bad.
I bestowed two awards on you simultaneously, somehow. Go check out what they are. http://wp.me/p1CLmE-Ay

Nice blog and great pictures.
Love your blog! You’re witty and a breath of fresh air.
I love this page!
Keep plugging away at the blog. If I don’t laugh out loud at what I read, don’t worry there is usually a wry smile on my face.
You sound like a goofy two-legged with a bird-name ( Felix) so I will follow u. Terrific compliment from me so you’d better ENJOY it. BTW I have tried TEA but prefer water.
Love Grumpy Comments already!
Being pretty grumpy (okay, constantly raging) myself, I am liking this chat. Keep it up .
Bug @ Bugwear

Thanks for subscribing to the Sandpit :)
Many thanks for subscribing to my scribblings. If I ever catch up on my sleep I might start to make sense. Or perhaps I’m just dreaming of that. Cheers
We have two things in common – playing guitar terribly (though you look as though you probably play it quite well) and having great cats. Oh, and being grumpy sometimes. That’s three. You can read about me and my guitar and songwriting experiences by searching ‘guitar’ on my blog.
Love your blog! Am definitely follow. Top of my list, you rock!
Your view of the world appears to be skewed just enough to be edgy and funny. Good luck with the writing. Don’t give up on it. I love the multimedia creativity shown here. I look forward to reading more.
Enjoyed reading and looking at your “Who I am in picture form” it’s witty, well written and concise, the best inroduction to a blog I’ve read so far. I wish you to figure out how to make money using your writing talent soon) Grumpy is a sign of lucidity, when it’s used with moderation. Good luck! ;-)
Sorry if this is a bit late and all, but I wanted to thank you for following my blog. I truly appreciate it! :D Thank you once again!
I enjoy you. and although i’m 33 i feel more like you than me. if that makes a lick of sense.
I just nominated you for the versatile blogger award. :)
I like your sense of irony and sarcasm! I’ll definately keep reading!
Heh I am my cat whimper in fear (my cat is a complete pussy!).
Thanks for your subscription! Regrettably now I have read your stuff I don’t think I can compete. You are infinitaley more funny than I am. I’m so depressed……..
I’ve really enjoyed reading your stuff… Think you’d enjoy reading the Crabby Old Fart (here on WordPress).
I like the fact that you are disturbingly funny. awesome.
You’ve been nominated! Check it out: http://stayathometatte.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/award-innundation/
This is great. I like your style. Your natural wit/sarcasm shines through each caption. You just got yourself another follower!
Ohhhh… I have three boys. WIll one of them turn disgruntled? Your our Peter. Don’t believe me? Check out his info under “Us”.
i can’t believe you are grumpy. You are witty!
I was about to blindly proceed with the tradition of commenting “Followed you because you followed me!thxkbaiii <3s :) ”
But your inherent hilariousity caught my attention and I am going to follow you FOR REAL.
Your Girlfriend is sooo pretty! Hope you guys have a good relationship… When you type these things, your life seems pretty boring (for me), but when you look at these pictures, it explains everything so well! GOD BLESS :D and continue blogging :)
You are the winner for two awards! Congrats! http://nizamhappieboyz.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/hug-the-sunshine-award/
Have a great week and best wishes, Nizam
Hey, you’re kind of cool and I might like your blog so good job or whatever.
That’s cool, I guess. Whatever. I mean, you know… Thanks, and stuff.
Your grumpy complaints and grievances are award-worthy. That’s why I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. Feel free to check out the details of the award here http://randomdeviations.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/an-award-and-a-request/ :)
Sorry about the comment I made just a few seconds ago. The word “go” got added to the link making it null.
I have been nominated for the ‘Sunshine Award’” by fellow blogger Thelma Cunningham.
In turn, I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award.
Please read my post “I have been nominated for the ‘Sunshine Award’” –
If you are interested, and feel that this is not gibberish, then copy the logo for posting on your site. Also I have included the instructions penned by other bloggers who have been nominated for the award before me.
For those who do not know what a Sunshine Blog Award is (and that included me), it is a prize awarded to “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. This is a sort of chain letter that we can never resist.
Super-glad I found your blog.
It appeals to my little, black heart. ♥
Hey, Thanks so much for the follow. You have a pretty cool blog yourself, glad I found ya!
I think u have a great personality :) and I like what u look like :D
hahah, your blog (and you :P ) made my day! Thanks :)
Most entertaining biography I’ve ever read^^, I might have to be a copycat:P
You’re awesome. I love writing and drawing to. Please make a book.
Thank you, and I am writing a book at the moment, for kindle! It’ll hopefully be done in a couple of weeks, I’m just collecting artwork from a few contributors. I really hope people are going to buy it!
i’m actually making a book too, a ZOMBIE book. But i certainly will buy your book.
It’s a kitty!
Also, Twinnings? Have you tried Rooibos? It’s good, you should try it.
Hey Man! It was interesting to look at your life in pictures. You seem like an interesting bloke. Gotta press that follow button on your blog.
Dude, if you’re not making money off this, where is the hope for the rest of us…you’re freakin’ hilarious!
You are now and forever, my favorite internet person. Keep on doing your stuff Felix. :)
Hey Felix, cool “About” page! Thanks for checking out one of my blogs (http://threedailydelights.wordpress.com/), and for choosing to follow it; I appreciate it!
One of my fave bloggers! :D
Love your cats and the ever lovely Rebecca. :D
Awesome about me page. I wear odd shoes too, people always come up to me and say “are you wearing odd shoes?” and I say yes and they say “good… I thought there was something wrong with my brain”. It’s a good conversation starter but only works with people who doubt their own sanity.
So, everyone, surely?
I have no idea why you followed me when I first started my blog a year ago, but I’m glad you did, because then I followed you, and you make me laugh on a regular basis. There are a few bloggers that come to my email in-box, and you’re one of them, so I often read your posts while I’m standing in line at the grocery store and such. Keep going, you’re funny. I’m going to put you on my blog roll. You never know, you might get a hit or two as a result of this!
Cheers from a middle-aged Seattle mom…
Thank you! That’s so lovely to hear! I’m having a bit of writer’s block at the moment, so it’s always great to be reminded that I’m not awful at this! Thanks again.
Felix, for what I’ve seen here, your def not a loser… You’re a bright, intelligent, creative soul, a restless soul, and it would appear a wonderfully interesting person… my blessings and peace for you this New Year….
Thank you for following HoB. Much appreciated! I’ll be hanging around here…
Appreciate the follow, man.
Definately my fave blog so far!
Such a great presentation!!! Really made me embarassed over my own…
This is fantastic! Absolutely loved this page :)
I must say I enjoy your canter. I find myself viewing the world in like manner at times. Hope to hear more from you!
Looking forward to seeing more from your entertaining blog :-)
Hi Felix :) Like your style. I’m so used to grumpy comments (they’re my husband’s stock in trade) that I’ll be quite at home here.
Pleasure to meet you.
Thanks for the ‘follow’ – I’m following you on Twitter too :-)
Your photo journaling on this page is brilliant, I really do get feel for being introduced to you. That’s very cool and very unique. I sense if you don’t mind me saying that you have an eclectic style about yourself, and that is a very easy thing for me to relate to.
Some refer to me as eclectic and some even cal me eccentric, and I wear that with pride.
When I was 24 we called that being a ‘Free Spirit” And it took courage, not something a loser could do.
No disrespect meant to your own words, but II think you have courage.
Peace ~ BB
I am a blogger-friend of Rangewriter. I just read her comment about this page. I want to let to now that I wholeheartedly agree with her. This page is really good to have a look at.
You seem lovely!
High marks for imagination!
I thought only old men were supposed to be grumpy!
Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
May Rebecca long tell you not to speak…if it means you’ll keep on writing. Fresh, bratty, witty, humourous – and a great respecter of cats. What more is there?
The name Felix: zesty.
The About section: one of the top three coolest I’ve seen yet and I’m addicted to WordPress.
The girlfriend: cute as hell. That hair should be insured by Lloyds of London.
The style: make peace with people’s jealousy because you’ve got a long stretch of it to endure.
The brothers: are you sure you’re related? I mean, was there DNA swabbing at any time?
The kitty: only the most awesome people can handle cats. Those who have failed the test are given dogs until they learn enough to take the test again. The cats proctor.
The writing: tight; book worthy. “I’ve found that while a small brown waistcoat or a jacket with elbow patches can’t keep you safe during the long winters of the soul, they can at least make pretty girls smile at you while you slowly decompose on the inside” is pretty damned good.
Yes, I get all that but Felix, come on… do you bowl?
Like your style! Come to our summer solstice celebration!
I’m a big fan of your clothing style. Thanks for visiting my blog. It’s good to see there are other grumpy people out there who others think are weird. I like being weird, it’s far more interesting.
You are the first person I have come across who has implemented this idea. I like it a lot.
Thank you for the ‘follow’, it’s very encouraging.
P.S. When you figure out how to make money from writing you will let me know, won’t you?
Trust me, I’ll be screaming about it so damn loud you’ll hear, wherever you are. Also, thank you, and you’re very welcome, sir!
Hey. I really love the crazy cool you embody and your blog exhibits. Nicely done.
I can’t figure out how to send you a private message to let you know I have changed my blog address to mylifedayjourney.wordpress.com You follow me on my other My LifeDay Journey but I didn’t like the fact that I had my full name in the address. So….Please come and like my new blog home!
One of the unique ‘About’ pages I have had the pleasure to visit :)
Its too cool and Thanks a bunch for the follow.
Felix, thanks for visiting my site and choosing to follow along. Stunning photos here.
Who you are in three words…..one funny dude.
OK. I am #89. I COULD shower you with platitudes, like you are darling and talented and your brothers and girl are terribly sweet, but I am expecting a call, so no time. On the other hand, you are RATHER talented, you know? SO glad you decided to pay me a visit. I am dull by comparison, so I look forward to your adventures. I really like the younger bloggers… most inspirational ;)
How I love a fellow grump!
I’m a man of very few words Felix. A typical East Londoner in that respect. I shall therefore be succinct and clipped in my address to you…
Nice blog, thanks for the follow. Are you sure you’ve thought this through?
Thanks for subscribing to my blog! I have to say that this was such an entertaining ‘about’ page, I can’t wait to check out some of your regular posts.
Love your ‘witty sense of humour’ and the sketches that you draw. Great to know about you.
Hi Felix :)
I have awarded you this:
Enjoy your weekend!
Dear friend, Thank you very much, I was really happy to have been following your blog. I’m still a lot to figure out, and here I can only say that you are an awesome blogger, full Inspiring and hope you can inspire more readers. Thanks and greetings compassion from Gede Prama :)
Your blog is awesome!
Thank you! That’s pretty much exactly what I’m going for.
Many thanks for visiting the site.
Loved your “about me”.
Dude, you are really funny and witty! I caught myself grinning a couple of times while reading what you had written.
I’m looking forward to checking out more of your posts.
And thanks for following me! :D
In the pic with the cigarette you look like the spoilt son of a Regency dandy. Think of yourself as a cynic &/ or satirist. What the hell ya wanna be a loser for!?
Excellent article. I definitely appreciate this website.
Continue the good work!
um.. Felix.. I just wanted to reach out to you because you were one of the first people to follow my blog. Thanks again so much for helping me with that first step – a friend
Neat. Cool humour. Feet where fingers are: I’m following you, too.
Hey, Felix, thanks for the follow. I only needed your menu titles to make me click that Follow button. Snap on the guitar, piano, ukulele (all played badly). Oh, except I don’t have a ukulele. Yet. I have a poorly played banjo, though.
A poorly played banjo definitely counts! I hope you enjoy my (poor, sporadic, trivial, and often, nonsensical) content!
Possibly the most engaging about section I’ve ever read…
I assure you, now that you’ve read all that, there’s absolutely nothing left about me that is in any way interesting. But thank you!
What a great site and great to meet you Felix. I would say ‘cool’ may describe you in one word. Thanks for stopping by.
Felix, that has to be a contender for the most entertaining “About” page prize.
Thank you, although it’s quite old now. I probably need to update it with all of the new ways in which I’m a wholly boring person.
Good to meet you, Felix and thanks to following my blog! Looking forward to reading your blog in future!
Felix, this funny old world of blogging makes the greatest connections. So glad it does. You write wonderfully! Big hello from this Brit living in Oregon.
Hi Felix. Thanks for following my blog. I will be back to visit yours again very soon. I have roared at some of the one-liners you have come out with,but you don’t seem that grumpy to me (Trust me, I have experience with Grumpiness, having married a Grumpster)!
Great blog you got here.
You got a Very Inspiring Blogger Award!
Hi Mr Grumpy!! Very honoured that you follow my blog which is just a collection of videos I like. Even though you criticise your dress style, it looks pretty interesting to me. Also, you remind me of some of the pop stars of the 60s and 70s — back when I was growing up. Dare I even say you remind me a bit of the Beatles. :) Anyway, it’s nice to “meet” your family and your sweet girlfriend, Rebecca. I hope you make tons of money from your writing. I’ll now do a tour of your blog. Cheers!
Love your about page and looking forward to reading more from you…
Thanks for coming in to see me at Steve Says…come again, stay a while – have a drink even! Happy blogging. Steve…
Great blog, I’m loving delving into it. It’s so unique. Nothing you’d expect. simply extraordinary. :) And thanks for following my blog.
that childhood photo is great! hahah :D
