The UK has just started charging for plastic bags (the princely sum of 5p) and either the Daily Mail or the Express (can’t remember which but it was definitely one of them) published an article along the lines of “say no to the bag charge!! bring your own!!!”, like that wasn’t the entire fucking point of introducing a Read more

I haven’t seen this but I’m really confused about why he’s tweeting that it’s been 10 years since it came out. I mean, unless he’s aware that it spawned the Manic Pixie Dream Girl thing. it’s not like it’s some really important cinematic oeuvre. Or is this a new thing now? Did Judd Apatow tweet that it’s been 10 years Read more

I saw these girls when they opened for Joshua Radin at one of his UK dates about 5 years ago and kept an eye on them afterwards because armed with just a guitar, a tambourine, and a kick drum, they were utterly incredible. I went to see them this February when they were on their If I Was UK tour and they still had Read more

I got really cross because I saw hot cross buns being stocked on Boxing Day. It's just not right! I made a bread and butter pudding for lunch on Easter Sunday a few years ago using hot cross buns. It was pretty damn good, if I say so myself.

I'm drinking Prosecco (that my friends brought round when they came for dinner a few weeks ago that we never got around to drinking) because it was the last day of my job today! I'm on glass three of an as-yet-unknown number. I've had "Friends With Kids" on in the background for the past hour but I've been reading Read more

I'm not sure what's more scary, the fact that he might've had such a profound upheaval in such a short period of time that he would do that, or the fact that might not have been what happened. It's all hideous.

How dare you come in here with your logic and your scientific report. He debated this in high school. He knows "a few women" who've had abortions. Why won't you just watch the totally unbiased videos on how they perform abortions and change your mind?

Lufthansa said there was nothing that would be considered red flags for him the last time his suitability was checked - he was deemed fit to fly with no conditions or restrictions. They're doing checks into his personal circumstances to see if anything had happened in the last months, weeks, days, hours, even, before Read more

That's exactly how I keep reading this too! Like, if you push a mother so far in a teenaged tantrum, the only course of action is for her to get a tattoo.

I remember almost crying with frustration because my mother INSISTED on calling the Powerpuff Girls the POWDERpuff Girls. Like, repeatedly and even with me telling her that's not what they were called, HONESTLY why are you SO EMBARRASSIIIINNNNGGG. I didn't shout much as a teenager, I was just constantly crying.

I would flat-out refuse to have those people back in my house again if they pulled that sort of stunt, particularly if I'd gone to the effort (and expense) of preparing an additional meal for them to accommodate their pickiness. That is just the height of rudeness.

I've had something similar quite recently. Your description matches perfectly with what I was googling, and getting the result BIG FUCKING SCARY HEART ATTACK which it wasn't and I knew it wasn't, but it still freaked me out, obviously. I even googled the symptoms of heart attacks in women because I know they're Read more

I have Ruby Woo and I absolutely adore it. I think it's one of their "retro matte" shades so it really is super-matte. It can feel a bit drying, but I find that putting on a lip balm about 5 minutes before you apply the lipstick helps with that. It hardly budges though, I've worn it to hot, gross, sweaty clubs and by Read more

Everything at work from about 2pm today has been hell on earth and because we're in the UK and I'm currently dealing with someone in LA who has a vastly inflated idea of their own importance, my colleague (who took the work mobile home with him) had to field a call at 10.30pm from someone representing the delegate, Read more

I needed to see this today. Things at work are going spectacularly tits up and I'm stressing out because I've only got one week left to make sure the replacement knows what she's doing for the things that we do every month but she hasn't seen me doing yet, that any of the loose ends I might have dangling that could Read more
