One-Year Anniversary!

OK so I missed it! Technically, the one-year anniversary was on 17th July, but hey I only get to a year on WordPress on 25th November apparently! So today seems like a happy medium.

(If you’re wondering what the medium is; its a Saturday night, I’m in one of the most ‘vibrant’ cities in the world,  and I’ve just spent over two hours ‘revamping’ my blog. On Halloween. What could I possibly do to top that? This post. The awesome life of  a young one in London!)

Without further ado, blog stats:

Number of views: 30 850 (it pays to write about Disney movies, Barney Stinson and laser tag!)

Most popular day: Friday 19th February, 2010 – 1703 views! All thanks to Esther Arunga and Quincy Timbergate! Thank you Finger of God church and Placenta Party (I never wrote about that, just wanted to remind everyone of the terrible efforts those Helloners make when it comes to naming things!)

Weirdest search terms:

  • english mutha fucka
  • pepeljuga hilary duff (what the hell does pepeljuga mean?! this search comes up many, MANY times!)
  • sociopathic stare
  • what did the wall say in the movie a cin (I can’t even begin to guess)
  • bba shower hour pics (and LOTS of variations. Pervs!)
  • selena gomez breasts (I’m not a lesbian!!)

The top search term of all time is…. *DRUMROLL*… Quincy Timberlake. How depressing.

Most popular post: Vive le weekend – told you it pays to talk about Barney. Second is the Another Cinderella Story review 🙂

What I’ve learnt from writing this blog:

  1. Disney movies are the bomb.com.
  2. Writing is much easier when you have time to browse the internet and to come up with things to write.
  3. Ergo working is conducive to blogging. (HEAR THAT all you writers who don’t work and sponge off your parents/friends/the government!)

What I haven’t learnt:

  1. The art of non-procrastination.

What I hope to learn:

  1. Nothing. I know everything. Except how not to procrastinate. But I don’t need that sort of negativity in my life. Procrastination is king.

Pic is unrelated.

Three times a…

sign I can’t think of snappy titles for my posts. This post was going to be named “WHY?” until I remembered that I’ve already posted two posts with that very same title. Although one was more like “Whyyyyyyyy” haha.

Anyway this is a series of things I wonder about on the daily:
1. Why did Diaby cut off his fro? I think thats where he held all his footballing skill – like Samson or something.

2. Why is  so sick with it?

3. Why did MTV cancel The Hills?
Or more importantly, why did they let Lauren leave??!! Noone cares about Heidi’s transexual plastic surgeries or Kristin’s contrived beef with the other girls!! (All 26 of us who still watch the show 🙂 )

4. Why do people always talk about politics? Its BORING!

Except maybe chicken politics

5. How in this day and age are there still people who do not believe in anthropogenic climate change?6. What is the probability of the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ writers deciding to retcon the whole season by saying it was all a dream Dallas-style?

(NB: retcon: full term – retroactive continuity – Adding or altering information regarding the back story of a fictional character or world, regardless of whether the change contradicts what was said before).

They should because if you think about it, all thats happened this season is that Ted has seen his future wife’s foot and most recently bought a house. Otherwise nothing – no change in the other character’s lives either (except Robin ‘seriously dating’ Don,  but the show doesn’t seem to care about that or even bother to show it, so why should I?)

7. Speaking of retcons, what’s with Kiely (formerly of 3LW and Cheetah Girls) retconning her super-slutty song Spectacular?

Sample of the lyrics:

Last I remember I was face down
Ass up, clothes off, broke off, dozed off
Even though I’m not sure of his name
He could get it again if he wanted
Cause the sex was spectacular
The sex was spectacular (yeaaah)

So it was the morning after
I couldn’t get home faster
Doing the walk of shame
In the same clothes from yesterday
I think he pulled a track out
When he was blowing my back out
What was I drinking
I cant believe I blacked out

You can say what you want but
You can call me a slut but
What he did to me last night felt so good
I must have been on drugs
I hope he used a rubber
Or I’mma be in trouble

After unanimous criticism from like, the whole world, Kiely said:

“Young women across the country get intoxicated and have unprotected sex. That’s a fact. I recorded the song to bring attention to this frighteningly prevalent activity. It is absurd to infer or suggest that I am condoning this behavior.”

Just a little reminder: “Even though I’m not sure of his name he could get it again if he wanted, Cause the sex was spectacular”. Back to you, Kiely!

“I wrote Spectacular and made the video to bring attention to a serious womens health and safety issue. Please dont shoot the messenger.”

HAHA world’s biggest retcon – Dallas better give up their crown.

The vid can be found here.

8. Why do people still care about Esther Arunga? That story broke like 3 months ago… people need to move on.

9. Why are people hating on Mourihno so bad lol. Dude can’t help it if his team just keeps on winning… Inter FTW!

The Special One

10. Is there anything Amazon doesn’t sell? Seriously. I’m about to hit up the site once more to check for some…

nom nom nom

11. KFC chicken! Why aren’t there any KFCs in Belgium?? All they have is Hector’s Chicken – which is pretty good but like double the price. I don’t play that shit ya dig?

12. Why don’t people understand the greatness of Britney Spears? And why do they always handwave her super-awesome comeback??? Remember when everyone was predicting that she was gonna OD and die or whatever? In yo face, haters!!

And finally… how come my mom is so awesome??

Happy Birthday!!!!!!

She’s really 35 but I’m retconning her age as her birthday present 😀 (cheapskate alert!!)

Youtube Tuesday – Welcome to the O.C., BITCH!

Actually, I have had Youtube Friday, Youtube Monday and now Youtube Tuesday at the office. I pity the poor people paying me, and I really hope they have unlimited bandwidth. In addition to the great model video, I have also listened to a lot of Backstreet Boys, Matchbox 20 and other random music from way back when :). Today, I have been watching this:

The O.C. Best music Moment #5: The Countdown

The O.C. Best music moment #15: Fix You

Wasn’t The O.C. like the best show ever! I’m seriously considering buying the DVDs – or maybe just waiting till I’m back in Nai so I can ‘obtain’ them for 50 bob. Or for free, heh we’ll see how it goes. Another day when I am even more idle than today (I wonder if that’s humanly possible?), I’ll bless you all with the profound conclusion that I have come to: Gossip Girl = The O.C. 2.0 and how I came to this conclusion.

Anyway, I’m off to enjoy more great O.C. music moments, mostly involving Ryan and Marissa OTPing. I don’t think there’s a Ryan-Taylor vid anywhere in the 40 video countdown! Lol. Whatever your criticisms about this show, you can’t deny the soundtrack was sick! Also, can’t believe the countdown wasn’t number one! Its the best part ever!

And because I know you’re on tenterhooks… Welcome to the O.C., BITCH!

P.S. You may be wondering what video did make it to #1. The truth is that there is no Number 1 – the countdown begins at number 2 and is also missing a couple of other positions, as well as having two #5’s. Just so you know 😉

P.S.S. Just realised when retrawling through the best music moments that there is a #1 – the video was just deleted. And of course, its the most amazing song ever – Forever Young!! Woop!

Football news – Reloaded :)

*****This post is dedicated to ‘Your biggest fan’ *****

I have just looked at the front page and I’m horrified (horrified I tell you!) that the last like, twenty posts are all Arunga-related!! ITS TERRIBLE. So I’ll do a summary of weekend footballing news especially as overall, this was a really good week – well if only Chelsea/Tottenham could have lost too, but you can’t have it all.

Arsenal – Sunderland (2-0)

YES!! GUNNERS!!! Fabregas was my captain on FPL as well… nice one.

Everton – Manchester United (3-1)

There’s something about Manchester United that makes me so freaking happy when they lose :). And all the Everton fans were ecstatic (at least on my homepage – all five of them)

Aston Villa – Burnley (5-2)

Football is not a gay sport at all. But props to Milner – 3 assists = shitloads of points for me 🙂

Fulham – Birmingham

I like Zamora. Plus he’s one of my attackers so bonus.

Tottenham – Wigan (3-0)

Poor Wigan.

Chelsea – Wolves (2-0) – Everyday I hate Drogba more and more.

Man-City – Liverpool (0-0) – Where’s the animosity!! How boring.

Blackburn – Bolton (3-0) – Wish I’d subbed in Robinson, Sorensen didn’t give as many points – Stoke – Portsmouth (2-1).

OK I don’t care about the rest. Buuuut –  

Nottingham Forest also beat Middlesborough 1-0 and are now looking veeeeery likely for promotion *touch wood*!! Yay!

In other news, Goal.com says that Henry is leaving Barca, possibly to Man-City. And also Cheryl Cole has left Ashley Cole (apparently) but I guess it doesn’t matter coz he’s injured anyway. Its not going to ruin his morale, or the teams. So whatevs.
