I just made a connection that has been lurking in the dark recesses of my mind for 20 years.

BEHOLD! Two of my all-time favourite works of art.

I really enjoy reading the comments left on online recipes. I like having these random insights into the lives of strangers, who like me, have a craving for curry and access to a computer.

I just cooked this and im only 20 and this was the first time I tried cooking something that didnt involve a microwave, a jar or a packet and I must say it was one of the best currys I've ever ate. Just a shame I had a fight with my dad since he tried taking over and was putting in too much ginger, so he went to bed and refused to eat any.

This was not good. The onion was too much, and the peas were pushing it. My child rejected it after 2 bites, and my husband only ate it out of courtesy. The dog liked it though. I went to bed with a stomachache.

Great news: there's a hot new word coming your way. Get your vocabulary to do some stretches, because it is about to expand.



A horrifying dream! Perhaps your spine has collapsed and you've lost several inches. Suddenly you are reduced to a pathetic specimen who needs help getting tupperware down from the top shelf (this is my waking nightmare, sigh). Or maybe you've shot up, and now have to stoop to get through doorways. Or maybe you are a retired San Francisco detective, dangerously obsessed with Kim Novak. Of course the damn woman leads you to terrifying heights. Aieee!

To her dismay!

From wikipedia:
On May 21, 2009 Judge Morrison England, Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed a complaint filed by serial litigant Janine Sugawara who said she had purchased "Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries" because she believed "crunchberries" were real fruit. Sugawara alleged that after four years of purchasing the product she had only recently discovered to her dismay that said "berries" were in fact simply brightly-colored cereal balls. The judge commented "In this case,... it is simply impossible for Plaintiff to file an amended complaint stating a claim based upon these facts. The survival of the instant claim would require this Court to ignore all concepts of personal responsibility and common sense. The Court has no intention of allowing that to happen."

Serial litigant, or cereal litigant? Hohoho, this paragraph has brought me such joy.

Sexy Break-Out Performance in The Social Network

I just viewed The Social Network at a cinema, and was totally captivated by a stunning silver screen debut.

MY TEA CUP! One of my favourites! On a fancy-important-elitist Harvard desk!

I discovered it at Valuable Village, and now it has hit the big time. I hope it remembers me in the Oscar acceptance speech.

I made the mistake of googling today's new word I made up, and of course found that some jerk on urban dictionary already defined it. 642 people have given this inconsiderate individual their thumbs up of approval, but they are misguided. Anyway, to the word.




Now the criminally insane pervert who posted it on urban dictionary thinks that the word is "the acknowledgement of an accusation, or a point made by someone you consider to be a douchebag."

NO! Douché is the acknowledgement of a good point, but point itself is a douchey point to make. As the defeated individual, you might not think the victor is a douchebag at all. Example:

Leper: I think nose rings are awful and would never, ever get one myself.

Mother Teresa: Well, of course you never will, because your tragic disease has caused your nose to collapse.

Leper: Douché, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. Douché.

After much freaking and spazzing out, I killed one of these today. I was pretty sure it was an evil demon or a time traveller from the Cretaceous period .

Now I feel very bad, because I've learned that House Centipedes feed on spiders, bedbugs, termites, cockroaches, silverfish and ants.


Never again.
