Things are so simple when you're 3

This is the most adorable thing EVER

All movies should be told by 3 year olds

Sudoku Maddness

I’m not sure why I’ve never gotten into this before but honestly I can’t stop playing Sudoku!

It all started a week ago when I was coming home from a night out, in my drunken state I decided I was going to try my hand at this problem solving game while on the tube. As I’m sure you could guess I wasn’t very good, at all. Instead I became frustrated with trying to solve the puzzle; I almost missed my stop for goodness sake! I left the unfinished puzzle on the train and headed home to my bed, not thinking anything more of it…until last Sunday when I bought the ‘Observer’ newspaper and found one inside. ‘I’m probably better in my sober state’ I thought, so decided to give it another (fair) chance….

Now I’m doing them all the time – before I go to bed, during my lunch period, while I’m waiting for dinner….I just can’t stop. I love the satisfaction of completing one of these bad boys.

I highly recommend them.

If you haven’t seen it yet, Here’s Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon in ‘I’m F?#king Matt Damon’

Who are you f^£king?

Useless Facts

TNT magazine is one of my favourite Monday night indulgents….after work I grab my copy so I’m in the loop. You see there’s so much to do around London that if I don’t, I start to worry that I’m missing out on something – something really cool!

This week there’s a feature entitled ‘My Local’ (ie. your local pub) and the love affair it has with some. I’ve never lived in a country where they take the drink so seriously (and so often for that matter)…that being said I’d like to share with you some facts TNT brought to my attention:

  • 60, 000 pubs
  • 29 million pints consumed per day
  • 39 million barrels of beer brewed a year
  • £15 billion spent on beer a year

Anyone fancy a pint?

Adam's Apple

This is a very funny take on the ‘Adam and Eve’ story.

I hope they decide to post more 'contemporary stories for the matured'.

It’s One of Those Days

I haven’t felt my best today. I blame the moon, even the stars. Last night I was tossing and turning all night and just as I was starting to fall alseep my alarm clock went off (this actually might not have been the case but it sure felt that way!). I obviously didn’t look my best, what with my puffy eyes and dark circles…oh wait it gets better. After spending hours (fine 10 minutes) straightening my hair I left the house to enter the worst fog I’ve seen in a while. Seriously, I couldn’t see a few feet in front of me, it was that bad. Now we all know with fog comes moisture and what does moisture do to someone’s naturally wavy hair, that they try to hide by straightening it? Needless to say I wasn’t feeling so hot today……..

That’s why I just loved this piece (I know it’s mean but it made me feel a little better) that did on the ‘ugly truth’, how celebrities look before the almighty Photoshop takes over and makes them red hot.

I wish I could have been Photoshopped today!

Pancake Tuesday

Mmmmm it's Pancake Tuesday and I haven't had mine yet....shame on me. I guess I'll be making them tonight for dinner (don't worry about my teeth mom I'll brush right after, promise!).

That's all really. I just wanted to share my excitment with you.

History Lesson

I love it when the BBC or Wikipedia shares what happened on this day in history, it’s always so fascinating. So let me share what I learned today - On this day in 1974 a 19 year Patty Hearst (the granddaughter of publishing entrepreneur William Randolph Hearst) was kidnapped from her home in California by the SLA (stands for Symbionese Liberation Army – an American urban guerilla warfare group). Approximately a year later she was photographed with a rifle in her hand trying to rob a bank…she had joined her capture’s crusade – it was thought she was brainwashed. Her jail sentence was pardoned after 22 months from 7 years.

She now lives a fairly regular life – married her former bodyguard, is an actress and has two daughters, 1 of which is a model.

Over all, Patty, you’ve lived a pretty interesting life.

Great Commercial

Now that the Superbowl is over…..what? just thought I’d follow suite – every website/blog I’ve been on today has said something about the Superbowl, and in turn the (very costly) commercials. Sorry, I didn’t watch the Superbowl and this post isn’t about that at all…however you could make a lose connection – great commercials.

Last night, while watching my regular Sunday night line up of TV shows, a great commercial from Talk Talk came on. I’m not sure why I liked it so much but it made a lasting impact (well enough for me to want to blog about it). I was never particularly interested in (the only think I can think of that’s similar is) Synchronized Swimming, but I really loved this advert – the skill it took to coordinate and choreograph this is mind blowing. How did they know what it would look it? How long did it take to perfect? Oh there are so many questions…and yet no answers.

Commercial in Question:

Do you remember when Coca Cola did something similar to this?

Or How about Miller Lite?
