This is totally hilarious. I’ve spent a good 5 minutes chuckling at these. On Wednesday comedian Nathan Fielder asked his fans to text their parents a cryptic message alluding to a drug deal underway. Text “got 2 grams for $40″, Fielder instructed his twitter followers to write to their parents before texting a second message immediately after to […]
I signed up to Pinterest last night. I actually have no idea what to do with it or what it’s for, but this picture came up on my Pinterest newsfeed equivalent. So my life may not be a mess, but there have been times when I’ve thought I’ve cocked things up (a certain exam at uni springs to mind) and then I’ve been guilty of consoling myself thinking “ah well at least my dress/shoes/outfit/false eyelashes” are awesome.
Came across this image on I f**king love science’s Facebook page. I’m one of these girls who’s not a massive fan of flowers, but I thought these little orchids were just marvellous! I would totally invest in them if they didn’t pong of poop :(. There’s a description below from the Facebook Page, I don’t know how accurate it is, but I think it covers the basics.
“These incredible looking flowers are monkey orchids. There are two species shown here, Dracula simia (the ones that look like monkey faces) and Orchis simia (which resemble little dancing monkeys).
Dracula simia are only found in the cloud forests of southeastern Ecuador at elevations of 1000 to 2000 meters and their flowers smell likes ripe oranges. Orchis simia are found in Europe, the Mediterranean, Russia, Asia Minor and Iran and the flowers smell strongly of feces! “
So the 30 day challenge kinda went out of the window. I have a reasonable excuse, I’ve had to switch laptops, so been working on my old old Toshiba and no access to any of my photos etc. Anyway you’re all going to be bombarded with catch up posts over the next couple of days. I hope you’ve all had a fun and random weekend!
This photo of this pepsi drinking primate is one of my favourite pictures that I took in Jaipur. Let’s just say it wasn’t my finest hour being chased by a monkey in the scorching heat for my beautiful, ice cold thirst quenching pepsi! In the end I had to succumb to the monkey’s demands and hand over the bottle. I have to say I was flabbergasted when it actually opened the bottle an started drinking, talk about rubbing it in! I’m almost tempted to send this photo to Pepsi, I’m sure they could devise some clever advertising gimmick with it!
A word of caution for anyone travelling to India, beware of monkeys! They will try and snatch food and drink from you. Unless you fancy taking on one of these pesky primates and risk having your face scratched, it’s best to just hand over the goods!
Being a loose cannon who does not play by the rules the first thing I did was ignore the warning and smear this all over my knob and bollocks. The bollocks I knew and loved are gone now. In their place is a maroon coloured bag of agony which sends stabs of pain up my body every time it grazes against my thigh or an article of clothing. I am suffering so that you don’t have to. Heed my lesson. DO NOT PUT ON KNOB AND BOLLOCKS.
(I am giving this product a 5 because despite the fact that I think my bollocks might fall off, they are now completely hairless.)
So over the past year I’ve been spotting these so-called fashionistas rocking humongous, somewhat hideous, geeky, thick, plastic framed glasses in the name of fashion. Apparently the look is considered sauvé and also adds a touch of intelligence and sophistication.
Ok so there may be a frame or two that look cool, but trust me, if you’ve spent the majority of your childhood and teenage years wearing that style of glasses and being traumatised, not having boys pay attention to you (let me tell you that whole “it’s what’s on the inside that counts”, doesn’t really count in secondary school) and made fun of because the cool kids didn’t perceive them as cool, you will not be agreeing at all with this trend. No one ever looks their absolute best in glasses. Period.
Blind people like me shouldn’t be made fun of because the NHS of the 1990’s did not have any sensible designs for children glasses.
Who do these fashionistas think they are, waltzing around with the geeky glasses and making them all cool?!
Anyway, I’m willing to let go and put my traumatic childhood to one side, and at the very least I can appreciate the benefit of these types of frames trending at the moment is that the younger generation of NHS glasses wearing kids won’t be teased at school. The second advantage is that it also gives my mother comfort in knowing that she is a proper trend spotting fashionista herself who is well ahead of the times as opposed to dismissing the whole of the fashion crowd to be a tad bit odd, as I do like my fashion.
What the fashionistas will make you believe you’ll look like…….
What you really look like….
I was having a bit of a lazy day the other day when I came across this TED talk by Google Engineer, Matt Cutts; Try something new for 30 days.
In a nutshell he states that the next 30 days are going to go by anyway, but by doing various 30 day challenges made the months that go by more memorable. So he’s done some crazy tasks, like write a 50,000 word novel in 30 months, which I contemplated doing for a fleeting moment and then thought “hell no”.
It’s a good way of introducing small changes into your life and as he says it also a good way to boost confidence too. So I was having a think of what could be my first 30 day challenge. There’s a few things that I would like to do more often, so I thought maybe I could incorporate those things into a 30 day challenge and post about it on here. So here are some ideas:
- Write a blog post every day
- Take a photo every day
- Take a photo of what I’m wearing every day
- Exercise every day (yeah, that’ll be a challenge, especially in this weather)
- Give up chocolate?!
- Maybe just try something new, that I haven’t done before, for 30 days
It was a toss up between blogging every day and taking a photo everyday. I’m concerned that I don’t have anything interesting to write about/take photos off. I’ve decided to blog everyday for 30 days in December and you’ll see for yourselves how I get on with it. Just so you know the blogging may be an amalgamation of ideas 1,2 and 3! Especially as I’ll be in Spain for 10 days in December, so I’ll have some amazing photo opportunities too. It’ll also be interesting to see if I agree with Matt Cutts’s views.
Anyway watch the talk for yourselves (it’s less than 4 minutes, so no excuses!) and you never know, you may embark on your own 30 day challenges!
