Valentine’s sniff

Happy Valentine’s Day. Hope it is a good one and that you eat lots of fancy pants chocolate whoever you are. Even if you didn’t get a card today remember:

Hate Mail

I am lovin’ this post card. Dear Mark, fuck you and fuck your cat. It is a bit harsh, but maybe the cat was a bitch. Have a look at some more, I personally like the ‘YOU WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS PETER ANDRE’ one. It is true, we will never be as good as him but he is really good so we¬†mustn’t beat ourselves up about it. There is¬†whole array of these cards by Mr Bingo which can be brought on¬†Amazon. It’s on my birthday wish list, although I have to wait 6 months for it, darn!

Super Freak at the Super Bowl

It’s the¬†equivalent¬†of American Football Christmas. I’m in my American¬†onesie¬†tryna understand all the millions of rules and routing for the Ravens. Best part so far was when Beyonc√© shooed off the rest of Destiny’s Child when she was bored of them.¬†Incidentally¬†when ‘Single Ladies’ started playing. Standard. So I thought this pic was pretty apt. Enjoy x


Extreme Watersports

Yes I know I have already graced you with my snowman presents but I couldn’t NOT post this.¬†Introducing extreme¬†watersports¬†Bob; he kayaks even when the river has¬†frozen¬†over.

He is¬†particularly¬†impressive as the snow yesterday was so fluffy you couldn’t make a snowball out of it; It was like washing powder. So, with the power of ‘not-giving-up-ness’ I kinda cheated – his head is a basketball. I literally wet a basketball and rolled it in the snow for his head. Kinda works, he looks happy enough anyway!


Sly Dolphins

Alas, I cannot sleep, there is too much to think about. And when I cannot sleep I think about all the big things in life, like can you make home-made spam, why are Hippos so angry and are Dolphins¬†really just gay sharks? Of course¬†I know ¬†they are not gay sharks, but while we are on the subject I believe there is something¬†suppositious¬†about them. They always smiling like they know a secret, they click their mouths every 5 seconds like a dog trainer and have tiny pegs for teeth. No, I don’t trust them.

So when I found this ‘factual’ illustration about Dolphins my¬†supposition¬†were confirmed. Listen in for the secrets of the trade:

Karl Pilkington Recites a Poem

Over the Christmas holidays, whilst getting fat on Rocky Road and trying to reverse the affect of days of drinking, the Ricky Gervais Show came on TV. In the show Karl Pilkington (my personal awkward hero) took a liking to poetry and the results are amazing. Click this picture to watch him in action:

kp poetry

Here is the poem encase you didn’t catch it straight off:

“If moths had eyes, would they be happier?
How do they know they’re not dead?
Cavemen hunting for food
But not before they style their hair on their head
What would last longer in dinosaur times?
A blind man didn’t stand a chance
Not with all them rocks about
I`d rather be a blind moth”.

Fred Blocks

This is me playing around with my XYZ blocks I got for my birthday, I love them. They represent an alternative to the exhausted structure of:
‘A is for apple, B is for ball and C is for cat’.
They offer a much more inventive way of learning, that really sticks in your mind:
‘A is for afro, B is for bald and C is for corndog’.
Not to mention the typography is amazingly colourful and diverse.
