Platypus Bride

Ah, life and it's double-edged swords.

Take Google Earth, for example.

On the one hand, it's quite creepy what those satellites can capture. And the resolution is only getting better.

On the flip side, though, there are amazingly creative people out there who use it to make things like "Night Walk in Marseilles" - where you get to go on a guided tour of a little French neighbourhood famous for it's street art.

Toy Story Cupcakes and a New Word

Do you know what the word for microwave is in Wales?

Popty Ping.

Was there ever a more appropriate name for something? In my head, I'm picturing Anthony Hopkins saying it in that gravitas manner of his. 

Ah, these little colloquial ins and outs - they're what I live for ; )

Downton Abbey, how I love thee!

It has recently come to my attention that Sean "P. Puff Diddy Daddy" Combs and I have more in common than bling and hoes.

Apparently, we both LVE Downton Abbey - isn't it wonderful how little things like that bring us all together?

A Darth Vader Cake and some Random Blah Blah

When I was little, I absolutely loathed Top Gear.

I distinctly remember, back when one had to check TV listings in newspapers, that there would be a day every single week where one of the channels would insist on doing a Top Gear marathon.

It was torturous. Just hearing that jingle in the beginning would fill me with a mixture of rage and coma-inducing boredom.

Which is why, when Bro Bro suggested I give it another go, I thought that he might finally be losing his $#!+.

Pondering Sochi

Today, I gave in and read my first proper article about Sochi.

Usually, I tune out all the chatter until after it's all over and, there's a line in Memoirs of a Geisha that sums up my reason much more concisely and profoundly than I ever could. It goes -

 I don't think any of us can speak frankly about pain until we are no longer enduring it.

For Olympic Host Countries it's most likely equal parts pain and sheer terror, though - can you imagine the logistics of all the forced teamwork it takes to pull off something on this scale?

Twenty Fourteen

I'm attempting to marshal my thoughts and type something coherent but, it seems that that's not going to happen because the latest episode of Sherlock was just on and I'm just the tiniest bit delirious.
