Oh, oh!

I reckon he did a fantastic job, hosting the Oscars. Can't help liking the man. :-) Especially after watching "Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" in its entirety. :-D

I kind of find this one hard to resist too:

...I just realised there's little point in linking to copyright protected material on YouTube... Well. The first link was the opening act at this year's Oscar's show. Performed by Neil Patrick Harris, Anna Kendrick, and Jack Black. Second link was from the same show - a musical number from The Lego Movie which was really awesome.

This is so true!

Oh internet, what wouldn't I know without you??


Well, what do you know? Not that it takes a lot of effort or time to peel an egg with a cooperative shell... But for those times when you have to pick the shell off in minuscular millimeter sized pieces...

I've taken to always peel my kiwis (rather than using a spoon to eat them out of their halves with skin) but this is WAY quicker than peeling with knife or peeler as I normally do!


This looks a little too good to be true but hey, worth trying! :-)

I guess I'm hungry



I guess I'm a little hungry. Or peckish perhaps.
Better to look at this gif than actually going over to the fridge to have a look see, right? 8-)

Just got to love them



Or perhaps it's him you've just got to love? Funny it is either way. Steve Ziegler (?) and his infamous "gnocci-laugh" from the Webstaurant Store.

Heck, you have to watch that old gnocci-video too, it's hilarious! :-D

To pink or not to pink

Photographer JeongMee Yoon took this portrait of her daughter Seo Woo and Her Pink Things in response to feeling Seo Woo's life was being overtaken by pink.

I have an issue with pink. I haven't been thinking a whole lot about it, it's been more of a fact, something gathered over time - I just don't like the colour pink.

This has changed though. At some point during the pregnancy with my youngest I have suddenly gone from not liking to accepting that it can be a pleasant colour. What? What happened there?

Pink is such an unnecessarily controversial colour! Why is that?

I just read an article where the author Elisabeth Camp looked at that very fact. :-)

I was

I was going to write something bitter and/or insightful here regarding separation and the process of forcefully moving someone out of my life.

But I played Warcraft instead.
