Cockney Girls Like Jug-‘Eds

20120621 Jug Head 150x150 Cockney Girls Like Jug Eds

That’s as much a statement of fact as when I said Essex girls like bags!  Okay, so generalisations aren’t all true but they make good post titles à la Daily Mail [Cue: rightist pun-riddled nonsense].

Anyway, back to the picture… Cockney sisters Jen and Sal sent in yet another awesome picture.  The covering email read as follows:

“This Fathers’ Day jug-‘ed was seen at a restaurant in the heart of the East End -Stratford, home to the Olympics, to be precise.

Jug-‘ed was like the cat that got the cream until we poured his innards out all over our chocolate fudge cakes.

And bloody lovely it tasted too.”

I bet it did! I’m hungry!

Thanks Cockney girls!

Where’s Wally?

On Tuesday a fine human female – or so I understand; humans disgust me (especially the editor) – called Emily sent me an email with a couple of photographs attached.  Emily (the Vaxian equivalent of which is Q’ahmahx) is a Bristol-based food blogger and runs the very successful Bristol Bites website.  As I understand it, Em was out hunting wild boar, catching salmon and gathering pots of Onken yoghurt in the Yeo Valley earlier in the week (okay, that’s all lies apart from the Yeo Valley bit) and somehow ended up with the mahusive bowl of salad shown below.

In her email she challenged me to spend some time looking at the photograph to see whether I could spot the face – a bit like Where’s Wally? (or Where’s Waldo? if you’re American or Canadian) or the alternative popular book Where’s Bin Laden?  The latter comes with a very cool Fresnel magnifying glass.

Despite clear instructions in the email, the editor failed (EPIC FAIL!) and scrolled straight down to the second photograph revealing the answer.  It’s a bit like when you tell someone, “Don’t look at that man over there with the big nose and orange toupée …”  In the editor’s defence the answer was kind of given away in the instructions.  But the editor is still a tosser.  Where’s Wally?  There’s the wally…

So, take a couple of minutes and see if you can spot the face.  Then scroll down.  I’ll go and raid the editor’s fridge whilst you do that.  If you stare long enough you’ll see it in 3D…

…not really…

Ready? Now scroll down for the reveal.

…and here it is. Très cool, n’est-ce pas?  [Cue: Ja, for shure!].  Many thanks Emilyna! 😉

Don’t worry. Be happy.

20101226 Vase 300x225 Dont worry.  Be happy.This is a foot stove at my parents’ house. They use it as a pedestal for a Chinese vase, which they have had for as long as I can remember. Well, not quite. It has four or five holes in the top but only the front two are visible, creating the illusion of a face with its mouth open, looking worried or unhappy. Why is it unhappy? Maybe it’s the weight of the vase pressing down on its head. In a way this is a metaphor for worrying about things that are precious to us, but in the grand scheme of things may not matter. They weigh us down and can cause mental and physical discomfort. I for one worry too much sometimes. What’s it all for? At the end of the day the vase is only worth something because we believe it. It is, after all, just a blob of ceramic. Don’t worry. Be happy. [cue: whistling]
