Self Like-age

2 Oct

I like this comic. But do I 'Like' it?

Okay, Mr WordPress. Answer me this.

WHY let people ‘Like’ their own posts? Just… why?

Me and my crazy, jerky, tired, decrepit mouse just can’t cope. And when my crazy, jerky, tired, decrepit mouse gets really annoyed with life and goes on the rampage, it does its own thing. It runs and gambols around my computer screen like a new-born lamb or an 80-year-old on acid. It is TOTALLY UNCONTROLLABLE.

So there is nothing to stop it from defying the laws of nature and ‘like’-ing a post that it itself helped create.

WordPress, for the sake of my sanity, I implore you! Do a weeny bit of extra coding– it won’t be too much stress, I promise– and GET THE LIKE BUTTON TAKEN OFF OF ALL MY POSTS.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Shall I give you the good news or the bad news first?

I think I’ll give you the bad news– that’s what people usually say, right? I used to never get that when I was younger. Why have the bad news first? you could have the good news and then ignore the bad because you’re too busy drifting off into a reverie about how you’re going to tell other people the good news.

But, enough of that.

Ian Hislop

I like Ian Hislop.

He’s (apparently) Britain’s 67th most powerful man (according to GQ magazine).

He’s very funny.

He features on one of my favourite satirical political panel shows.*

He’s got the job (kinda) that I want, eventually***.

But that’s not why I like him.

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.

Blogging Is Scary Again.

10 Jul

Oh, I long for the days when I could look at my blog with reckless abandon.

Cute, but I don't really know wh-- oh, I get it now.

Unfortunately, as a four month-old blogger (okay, almost. His birthday is in  17 days), blogging is scary. Take this scenario for instance.
