Oh Lord, I’ve done it again. It’s 9:13 on Thursday night and I’ve totally forgotten to blog for the day. This has become embarrassing. As an apology, please accept this series of IT Crowd memes: Continue reading

Fingerling potatoes and heirloom tomatoes (food trends are ridiculous)

Yesterday I was introduced to the world of food trends, and I’m not quite sure if I can express how incredibly silly I found it. I tend to think most trends are silly (I’m still anti-Ugg boot) but food trends seem especially silly – just because somebody tells you that cupcakes are no longer fad-worthy does that really mean you have to stop eating them and start eating bacon-flavoured donuts? Continue reading

Just Because You’re Famous, It Doesn’t Make You Interesting

I discovered this article on Oh No They Didn’t today about the most boring celebrity instagram accounts. You can read the full list here. Continue reading

Bathing suit shopping: it’s not you, it’s the suit.

I went bathing suit shopping last night and it was a trial of patience (and I have very little patience in general). I think this is an experience shared by many women (and possibly men, though their suits are just shorts, so suck it up gents, you should be so lucky). It’s ridiculously hard to find a bathing suit that fits just perfectly and that doesn’t have ruffles, bling, or cutouts in all the wrong places. I don’t know why one piece bathing suits with all the sides cut out are a thing these days, but those are not tan lines I want on my skin. I’m also not sure why push-up bikini tops are also a thing – weren’t they revealing enough just being tiny triangles of fabric? Continue reading

“Sir, please do not leave your snake unattended in public”

Julia suggested that I make one giant post about all the weird things I see in the town where I work, but then something happened on Monday that was actually just too weird not to talk about. Continue reading

I Question So Much of This

I discovered this morning that Liam Gallagher and Liam Howlett of The Prodigy are married, respectively, to Nicole and Natalie Appleton of All Saints, the Canadian-British girl group from the ‘90s. This seems outrageously odd to me. What exactly is the attraction? And I mean that in regards to any end of either relationship. Continue reading

I just discovered the video for Blurred Lines. It’s brilliant.

I’ve been listening to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke (or Robin #Thicke if is video is to be believed) on repeat all day today. Now I know that I’m ridiculously behind the times and this song has been out for some time, and is likely on its way to being overplayed, because it’s remarkably catchy. But this is what happens when you don’t listen to the radio and instead listen to indie music in your car. So, essentially, I’m sort of just getting into it now. And today, for the first time ever, I saw the video and I question much of it. Continue reading

Kaidence Kardashian and other ridiculous baby name suggestions

Well, Kim Kardashian has had her baby and unconfirmed reports are swirling about that her name is “Kaidence”. I refuse to believe that stupidity until it’s confirmed by the parents. But this got me thinking of celebrity baby names in general. I think we all knew that the Kardashian/West baby would have an unusual name (who spells Chloe with a K? I ask you.) but I was hoping for Klout or Kookie or Kandlestick. Continue reading
