Ah Seattle, I Could Get Used To You

Alex General Nuggets 0 Comments

So it’s 2am again and yet again, I’m being told off for still being awake. I doubt I’ll finish this post in one short session, so this’ll probably come at some really weird time or on a regular scheduled post slot.  Adventure Awaits! I wanted the freedom to do some exploring, so I decided to get a rental car and …

Hello Seattle

Alex General Nuggets 0 Comments

Finally, I’m here! I’ve got through customs and have arrived in Seattle.  I love long journeys The longest journey I ever had was probably when I went to Australia at the age of seven, although, unsurprisingly I was traveling with my parents at this time. While a ten hour flight might seem like a long time to most people, if …

I hate pears!

​”I swear down Alex, if you’ve eaten a pear again, I am not going to be pleased.” Shhhh, you know nothing! There is no fruit quite as disatisfying as a pear. These completely unique shaped fruits generally have a disgusting wooly texture to them. In fact, if you are one of the few people who can somehow tolerate the scourge …

For my birthday, I was lucky enough to get Da Vinci Catapult kit. Now for those of you who are unsure as to what this actually is, it’s a small working scale model that’s actually pretty powerful!  Let’s talk Physics Ugh, not physics, please anything but Physics. So this is a single armed catapult, Da Vinci did actually create a …

So here’s the day I was waiting for. My day of judgement, my day of reckoning. As I take a look back at my life, I accept that I truly have achieved a lot. At 06:53 in the morning, two decades ago, I was born. I was fed up of my mother’s uterus and decided to leave it two weeks …

It’s June

It’s been a while since my last post, too long in fact. I thought I’d write a post to let you know what’s going on. I now use Britain’s biggest carpark every weekday Of course, I am talking about the infamous M25, which in truth, for me, hasn’t been to bad yet. Now I have said this however, I’ll most …

The Craziest Brit Between Three Countries

I hopped on the flybus just after ten minutes past six in the morning to catch the flight to Gatwick for the next leg of my adventure, armed with my twenty-five litre rucksack, a ridiculous amount of energy, my owl t-shirt and of course the puffin I bought in Iceland!  Today, I have been to three capitals! This is a …

Lemons!!!

Hello everyone and welcome back to Tetracious Frustration, the only blog site powered by lemons…  I eat entire lemons… Most people I know have seen me eat an entire lemon at some point. Of course most people’s reaction to this is broadly similar and usually goes along the lines of “are you eating a lemon?” Which roughly translates to “stop …

The birth of the sixth

Alex General Nuggets 0 Comments

“Alex? Can you hear me?  “Please don’t leave me!”  “Fine! Don’t reply then.  😕” When I awoke it was quiet, too quiet. I was disoriented, confused, not entirely sure of what had happened. “What was reality?” That was a question, I asked myself, “where am I?” was another. These questions weren’t that important, because I had to consider the possibility …

Be Different!

Prometheus was punished by the Gods for giving the gift of knowledge to man. He was cast to the bowels of the earth and pecked by birds.  Argh! Bird, bird, bird, kill it, it’s evil!… In Portal 2, the story of Prometheus was told by a turret who claimed to be “different.” This turret was known as the ‘oracle turret’ and …

…. Alex…  No, those holes in the back of the television are not for you to spit Ribena into… Liquid and electronics don’t mix When I was six, I saw some holes in the back of the television and decided that it would be a ‘fun game’ to spit Ribena down the holes of the television. I was extremely surprised …

Pineapple Does Belong On Pizza!

Alex General Nuggets, The Weird, Wired and Wacky World Of Alex Wornast 2 Comments

I love pineapple on pizza Alex! Remember, I told you to order one with pineapple while we watched stranger things. Yes, I remember! I also remember the food coma that I went into afterwards… I would seriously not recommend binge watching stranger things… But yes, moving swiftly on, contrary to what you might believe, pineapple on pizza is much more popular …

Have you got a quid mate?

When I worked in Waitrose, someone handed me a new fiver. I was so excited because it was all new and shiny, but I had to give it to someone because they needed change for a tenner 🙁 What an absolute shame that must have been for you… Well well well Britain, the new quid coins have arrived and as …
