Best Things Ever of The Week Ever of The Week #2

29 Jul

Yaaay! It’s time for *add internety epic movie guy voice* Part Two.

5. Food Porn

I can pretty much sum this up with two very useful examples.

Example 1: M&S Adverts

Note the oh-so-sexy voice* and the suggestive pauses (“Three bean salad… and wild rocket… with chargrilled tuna steak…”)  , the slo-mo effect, the smoochy lounge music.

Seriously, if M&S food really looked like that, I would buy all my meals from there.

Example 2: The Hummingbird Bakery

Oh god, it's so... so...

I don’t really think I should have to say much about this, just that most of the entries on this list are based around cupcakes. And that their website is equally as scrumptious. :3

The point of food porn is that it makes you salivate, and then go out and buy things. Which is okay with me.

On Boys, Bikes and Mistaken Identity

11 Jul

I am a blogger* and a geek, therefore I have no life.

So, what do I do during the summer holidays when I am on my lonesome (for, due to my nerd-dom, I have no friends)? I ride up and down the canal path near where I live, on my bike.**

First, let me explain about my bike.

On Pants and the English Language

27 Jun

Quote of the day:

“I refute you!”                                                                                                                                       Josie Carter

Use this one in an argument. It really works. No one knows quite what to say, so they just dissolve, especially if said in a Simba from The Lion King manner. Another that really works is “Do not mock me, for my words are a matter of pride!

DISCLAIMER: I am about to offend anyone on here who speaks American English. If you indeed do speak American English and are reading this, my advice would be to stop reading. Now. Okay, I put this up. Continue at your own peril!

A Disgruntled And Moany-ish Letter

25 Jun

Dear Owner of this Blog,

Please shut up. Or at least write about something different. I’m sick and tired of hearing about your internet related woes. Readers aren’t interested! We want romance, murder, excitement and LOTS MORE EPIC MUSIC!

If you don’t write about something else, we will terminate your blog. Okay?

Lots of love,

The Secret Society of WordPress Blog Police (who only write to people who are rubbish)

Things I Like: Cousins

I like cousins.

That is to say, I like ‘Cousins’ by Vampire Weekend.

Not my actual cousins. Though I do love you, if you’re reading.*

Yeah, well anyway! Cousins. Yes. Look. Just listen. And watch. You’ll get what I mean.

So.

“…Like A Hundred Million Hotdogs, Sir.”

I love Eddie Izzard. In all his transvestite-sparkly-dressed-tight-leather-trousered-lipsticked-and-eyelinered glory.  He’s just pretty awesome.

Mr Izzard himself.

“Transvestite is male tomboy, not, repeat,  NOT drag queen. Gay men have pretty much got that covered.”

The Internet has no eraser. Anything that you post can be found again, no matter how many times you edit, delete or try to cover up. Scary, no?
