This week’s pick of the week is Doing Nothing All Weekend. That is all.
I had to pick this little piece of internet madness this week, simply because it gave me the biggest giggle I have had for a while. It’s far too long to embed in the post, so I’ll just ask you to click here: Please return my spider. Funniest thing is, I have honestly had emailContinue reading “Pick of the week XIV”
Today’s pick of the week is very slightly hypocritical, because I have never actually bought any of the lovely things I am going to recommend. Not for lack of wanting to, or even for lack of cash, but simply because lovely as they are, they just wouldn’t suit me. I just don’t have the kindContinue reading “Pick of the week XII”
I don’t think this requires much further comment, it’s just the thing that made me laugh the most this past week.
I was first sent a link to this blog for a story on the state and situation of the original Winnie the Pooh toys. And then I started poking around at some of the other stories, and realised what a great blog it was, so I thought I’d share it here. Scouting NY is aContinue reading “Pick of the week X”
Well, as today is a particularly lazy post-barbeque Sunday, I thought I’d pick you all a particularly indulgent and yummy pick of the week. So here are my current 2 favourite treats.

Every tweet is a complete story in only 140 characters or less. Unfortunately they are usually too long toContinue reading “Pick of the week VIII”
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin. Once upon a time there was a princess. Well, obviously, not a real princess, but no-one ever starts a story with “once upon a time there was a thirty-something web designer”. Anyhoo, this particular princess must have had a whole bag of Bird’s Eye frozen peas under mattressContinue reading “Pick of the week VII”
You know how to peel a banana, right? Wrong! The glorious thing about the Internet is that, while you’re sifting through the infinite quantities of crud, every now and then you find a gem. It’s a bit like beachcombing, sometimes you find a pretty shell, sometimes the shell is pretty enough for you to pickContinue reading “Pick of the week V”
Surprisingly enough, the Light House cinema in Dublin is not only not a lighthouse, or a tower of any shape or form, it’s underground. In fact, it’s doubly underground. Underground as in not very well known, kind of arty and different, and very very cool. And underground in that you have to go down aContinue reading “Pick of the week IV”
