Watch: FlashMob to PSY Gangnam Style in Rome

An insane Flashmob organised in Rome, on the 10th November 2012.

Word spread by social media and word of mouth.


Also, needs to be noted, Gangnam Style is now the most viewed video on Youtube, with over 870,000,000 views. Bloody mental.

In fact, I even received a ‘thank you’ card for organising my Dad’s surprise 50th, in the form of an eCard with my dad’s face as the singer’s face, dancing away on the music video.


Happy Halloween!

My ever patient Bert. “Go on then, you can dress me up if you like”. Aww.

Politics: Gillard vs Abbott

I couldn’t pretend to know much about politics, but I found this speech by Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard rather inspiring.

I don’t have particularly strong feminist views, probably because I grew up in a family where the woman ‘wore the trousers’, so to speak. Sexism and misogyny is not something I appreciate however, which is why I think it’s important to stand up against men who, whether maliciously or not, condone it.

After the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, moved to remove Speaker Peter Slipper after it was discovered that he’s been sending inappropriate text messages, Gillard brings to light Abbott’s own history of sexism and political double standards. No one likes a hypocrite Tony.


NB. I did find her comment about him “looking at his watch because apparently a woman has spoken too long” rather presumptuous and unnecessary, albeit his unfortunate timing.

Amazing: The Talented Olate Dogs

Amazing father and son dog act. Many of these talented dogs were rescued by the duo, and not only do they seem to enjoy what they do but they absolutely love their owners. Love it!


Joke: A horse walks into the bar…

And the barman says: “Why the long face?”

One of the best jokes in the world. See how funny people (and horses) find it?

Laugh: Dogshaming

As the name of this tumblr implies, it is dedicated to the act of bringing dogs transgressions to light and shaming them.

Made with humour, not spite, I find it delightfully funny, and have been LOLing in the office for the past 20 minutes. I can’t wait to get back home and send in a photo of my boubou.

Here are my favourite ones:

I just love how they look so, well,  shamed!

(apart from the one that humps stuffed toys, he just looks thrilled)
