Thought this was a nifty tip. Probably because I’m *sorta* hopeless at chopping things (True story: cut off the tips of my fingers once*).
*Don’t worry, they grew back!
I am no fan of Taylor Swift, but I don’t *completely* hate her work either. She’s done good work, worked her way up to get to where she is today – and at such a young age too. What’s not to admire?
Well, perhaps her music, which can make you want to scratch your eyeballs out sometimes. Unless, perhaps, you’re into teen pop.
So if you feel like killing yourself from hearing too much Taylor Swift on the radio, I hereby present to you some smart aleck’s analysis of Taylor Swift’s life’s work (thus far). Might make you feel better!
Made me laugh. You can’t help but agree.
If you don’t know who Taylor Swift is, here’s a video to whet your appetite for teen pop:
I have a confession to make.
I’m a Google slut.
Sure, Microsoft Bing’s got pretty pictures and Yahoo offers an alternative taste, but like a responsible man who says no to a stripper because he’s married/has a girlfriend (if only all men were like that!), I go back to my first love every time.
Speaking of love, this is another reason I keep going back to Google (even its name is sexy!):
As friend says, this is the dastardly equilateral triangle of dating. So which two to pick?
Well top of the morning to you!
St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and here’s a merry *hic* bottoms up to you (it may be early in the day here in Singapore, but i maintain it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere else in the world)!
To celebrate, here’re some fun, potentially useless trivia about this once-religious Irish holiday you might like to hoard for future use (or perhaps to win a pub quiz):
- The original Patrick behind this here holiday wasn’t even Irish. He was British! Now I’d like to know what the folks from Ireland think of this, given the sensitivities between the two islands.
- St Pat’s Day wasn’t invented by the Irish. America claims credit once again. It was invented by Irish-American immigrants – probably to celebrate their ethnic identity and bond with one another.
- Pollution matchmade green with St. Pat’s Day. The tradition of wearing green on St Pat’s Day started when an American St Pat’s parade organizer noticed that a dye used to detect river pollution stained someone’s overalls green. He decided to turn the river green on St Pat’s Day that year and the rest is history.
- On average, 13 million pints of Guinness Stout are consumed on St. Pat’s Day. As opposed to 5.5 million pints consumed on a normal day! Obviously, we don’t need a reason to drink. Just a reason to drink more!
- Guinness is good for you. A nurse friend of mine told me Guinness is medicinally good for you. I didn’t believe her. Of course I was proven wrong, by BBC Health no less – “A pint of the black stuff a day may work as well as a low dose aspirin to prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks.” Looks like good news for boozers!
*St. Patrick’s Day blessing upon you!***
**A pint of Guinness, please.
