Ahhhh Tuesdays…After a six classes straight no-break-not-even-a-pee-break Monday, Tuesday is always a welcome addition to my week. It’s eases me nicely into Wednesday and sure then it’s almost Thursday which is one day closer to Friday, and I mean, I could practically say it’s almost the weekend…eventhough it’s only 12:30pm…on Tuesday and I’m yet to actually do any work…and won’t for at least another two and a half hours minimum. God, I’ll miss this upon our trade from The Land of the Morning Calm to The Land of the Maple Leaf. I’ll have to get a real job, with real hours, doing real, dare I say it, work! Ewwww.
Moving on. Happy Timewasting Everybody….Hope you’re all recovering nicely from Paddy’s Weekend!
First up, some photography. Man, I love pictures! Not only do they require less effort to appreciate than reading something (God, I’m lazy!) but they can be just so damn pretty sometimes. Here’s a selection of my faves, check out the rest on the site. They are all awesome. I had my faves narrowed down to five…until a sixth crept in too. (also, credit where credit’s due, if one of these photos is personally yours, shoot me an email and we’ll credit and link you)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this website. Love it. It makes me laugh out loud, literally. Not in the ‘LOL’ type of way where I think something’s mildly amusing so I type that back as a response when in reality my face barely twitched when I read it. Nope. Not like that. Banned from being read in public places such as the bus or the subway as people around me stare and point at the white girl laughing uncontrollably. This is, without a doubt, one of the funniest, random sites out there. Not only does their logo look like this:
David Thorne is awesome! The Canadian One even tried to get me his book for Christmas but alas, tis not available in Korea. Fear not, apparently there’s an e-book version and, armed with my new Kindle, perhaps it shall be my next purchase. Check out my favorite post of his about Missing Missy and, of course, his advice for you if you’re feeling sad.
Oh cracked.com, how I do love your random lists of things people really never knew they NEEDED to know! Here’s 6 places I do not, EVER want to go on vacation. And here’s another about 5 Mysterious Disappearances (that turned out to be hoaxes).
Bert Kreischer is a comedian and whenever he stays in hotel rooms, he uses stuff in the room to leave a surprise for the maid. Check it out!
And, finally, I leave you with this picture, cos it’s hilarious and, having had this conversation with The Canadian One recently, I find it appropriate.
TCO: ‘Are there bears in England?’
Me: ‘Like free? No. Why, are there bears in Canada?’
Me: ‘Like free?’
Me: ‘Like just wandering about??’
TCO: ‘Yeah. Like in the forests.’
ME: ‘WTF? Who looks after them?’
TCO: ‘No one, they’re wild.’
ME: ‘WILD? But what if they get sick?’
TCO: ‘I dunno. They’re wild. No one looks after them. They live deep in the forest.’
Me: ‘Free? Like, just wandering about?….Do they eat people?’
ME: ‘We’re not moving to Canada.’
