Can’t get it out of my head

It’s probably to do with my burgeoning Allison Iraheta obsession (17 year old currently rocking it out on American Idol) but lately, I cannot get this song out of my head:

Heart – Alone

I think it may have to be my new karaoke song. Sorry people.

EDIT: This happens to me EVERYTIME. Why do my videos always disappear as soon as I post them? Le sigh. Anyways, it *should* be up there now.



Tweet Treat

The post title is nowt to do with twitter, but a treat of the rather more edible and delicious kind.

I give you – The Chocomatic Chocolate Clock:
l_chocclock

 

Tadaaaa!

This delightfully pink apparatus pops out a chocolate treat, on the hour, every hour. Nyom.

But you’ve got to be quick though; if you haven’t nabbed the sweet in 30 seconds (AND WHY WOULDN’T YOU??) it’ll take it back in for the next hour. And it would serve you right.  However, luckily enough, there is a cheat button though to get an instant treat, just in case you were busy when the chocolate came out. As if.

What more could you need on this dark December day in April?



Love her, love her please

I’m not usually a massive American Idol fan.  I’ve always found the young hopeful’s quests for stardom a bit too desperate sometimes and it lacks the humour of X Factor (apparent from the required ‘whacky’ auditionees at the beginning of every season – they’re even more ‘whacky’ in the States o’course).

But this year, I’ve been kind of following it through the repeats on TV3 on lazy Saturdays and one lucky afternoon, I flicked on to this girl:

She’s sixteen years of age. Six.Teen. Her voice is pure gorgeous and as the classic line goes, she could sing the phonebook. I think, bar Leona Lewis maybe, she’s the only ever person I’ve seen on a reality programme like this, that I’ve actually wanted to buy their album. I want her album now. Right now.

Simon, mind that girl please, she’s a talented ‘un!

EDIT: YouTube and WordPress are not my friends 😦 I posted this ages ago, sauntered off happily and the video never published. Boourns. Fingers crossed it’s up now!



That Ratan Tata sounds like such a lovely fellow…

Says the charming Mr Tata on the long waiting list for his new £1,300 Nana car:

”You wouldn’t want to make someone wait to long for his car since a car is like a pretty woman. If you wait too long she will become old and perhaps fat.”

I was going to say ‘God love his wife’ but then I thought, sure the poor chap mightn’t have one. And so off to the ever trustworthy Wikipedia I go to see if there is a lucky Mrs Tata.

From Wikipedia:

Personal life

Mr Ratan Tata has a metalic blue Maserati.[4] He sometimes likes to fly his private jet himself.[5]

So I guess he really does compare cars to wimmins. Sure we’re only accessories after all. Expensive accessories obviously but accessories all the same. Pfffffffft.



There he is!

I’m returning to blogging by thieving someone else’s post:

“I’m alone because you’re more alone in an unhappy relationship than you really ever are without a relationship at all.”

It’s a post very worthwhile thieving though, by a Huffington post writer on why she’s still single after her husband died ten years ago. I’m admirable of her strength, independence, and laid back attitude. And she’s funneh to boot.

PS. Thanks all for the well wishes below; I luff you!

I haven’t disappeared on purpose or intentionally – stuff is just getting a wee bit in the the way of blogging at the mo, but hopefully, all shall return to normal sporadic blogging soon.

Stuff that got in the way:

– Laptop breaking

– Laptop being fixed but losing internet for no Goddamn reason

– Being sick (nowt serious of course, it just left me in bed for a week)

– Life stuff that I no like blogging about

– The quick dip-in-and-out-edness of Twitter. I’m not an addict by any means, but I do quite like it right now.

Speaking of Le Twit – here are six weird and wonderful (but mainly weird) things people have built with Twitter. Nifty!



Where have you been all my life?

Maybe it’s because I’m in a bit of a strange mood these days but I’ve just seen this picture of Sarah Harding from last night’s NME’s and I’m curious as to when she got so foxy?

Now, the dress is a tiny bit gack – I don’t like that random mid-length on anybody – but I’ve never seen her face look so pretty and sexy all at the very same time. I always thought she looked a bit hard but now….

… I definitely would.

… and neither is Barb Dwyer, Paige Turner or – my personal fave – Les Plack (a dentist from San Fransisco).

According to the good ould Beeb these are all real people who, methinks, must have had some really strange and/or humorous parents.

I’ll have to judge any potential future husbands by their surname if I’m going to have any fun naming our sprogs!
