A White Sister...

This is how I found out Adele is white and not black as I was under the impression...

I was browsing some of the blogs I follow and discovered this awesome photo off Adele on Time and a few moths .

Isn't she gorgeous?  And I do like her attitude.  And she really has a stunning stunning voice...

The fact that I thought she was black lead to the following conversation on facebook:

Charlene Richards

So I kind of discovered today that Adele is not black...

LOL!!! SMH....just a heads up, neither was Amy Winehouse or Duffy or Christina Aguilera...

Charlene Richards

What I love about How I Met Your Mother

Since all those HIMYM fans are counting off the days like me till the new season starts, I thought I would share a few reasons why I love this show:

Reason number 1: 

"Come on everybody...Let's go to the mall..."

Lyrics to Let's Go To The Mall :

Let's go to the mall everybody! Go!
C'mon Jessica, C'mon Tori,
let's go to the mall you won't be sorry.
Put on your jelly-bracelets,
and your cool graffiti-coat,
at the mall havin' fun is what its all about.

I haven't done my homework yet...
That's okay.
And you know how my parents get...
I don't care 'cause all my friends are gonna be there

Everybody come and play
Throw every last care away
Let's go to the mall...

Chloe, mouse, I love it.

There's this boy I like,
Met him at the food court.
He's got hair like Brettsy
and he does jumps on his skateboard.

I hope he asks me out,
take me to my favourite spot.
It'll be just him and me.
But don't forget the robot.

Dad says I'm too young to date.
But baby I don't wanna wait.
I don't wanna wait.
Let's do it.
That's okay I'm gonna rock your body anyway.
I'm gonna rock your body till the Canada Day.

Everybody come and play
Throw every last care away
Let's go to the mall...

I went to the mall with a couple of friends.
I had a whole week's allowance to spend.
I want hoop earrings and a Benetton shirt.
We came here to shop and we came here to flirt.
I turned around and who should I see?
Prime Minister Brian Mulrooney.
He said, "Young lady I don't approve."
So I had to get down and bust trés sweet moves.
Hey Fred...c'mon...let's go to the mall!

Let's go to the mall everybody!

Everybody come and play
Throw every last care away
Let's go to the mall...

Everybody loves the mall!
Everybody come and play

Throw every last care away
I love my hoop earrings.
Let's go to the mall...

Today. [ X 32 ] Let's go to the mall. [ X 12 ]

Times are changing

So, today I was feeling really blue...
It might be wedding jitters, it might  be work-related or it might be the fact that I saw Mufasa die in 3D last night...

However, I needed something to spice up my day.

So I revamped my whole blog  (Eish)

Don't know if I like it yet...

Let me know what you think.

It's the same ME

I just got different colours:)

30 Seconds of Fame

I thought you'd be happy to know that I am featuring on somebody else's blog...

Jerusha at This Red Lipstick (one of the awesome blogs that I follow) asked for our favourite photos and I decided to email mine to her.  With the result that  me and someone else on the photo (whose name I am not allowed to mention) is showing our bums to the world (okay, maybe not quite).  I laugh every time I see this photo and I explain on Jerusha's blog why it is special to me.

Check it out for yourself:)

How to make the perfect bowl of Asscorn

  • Cup of popcorn seeds
  • Oil
  • Packet of Astro's*
  • Salt and Vinegar Popcorn Spice
  • Put a pot on the stove plate and pour in enough oil to cover the bottom. 
  • Now pour in the cup of popcorn seeds  (make sure it also just covers the bottom of the pot) 
  • Put the plate on about 5 or 6 to heat up the oil and let the seeds begin to pop...
  • Once you've got a pot full of popcorn (or once you don't hear the popping sound anymore), switch off the plate and remove the pot from the stove. 
  • Throw your popcorn into a glassbowl or if your lucky and you had a friend who knew about your popcorn fetish, throw the popcorn into your big yellow bucket that says Popcorn on the front
  • Pour the Astro's* into the bowl of popcorn (if the popcorn is nice and hot, you get a bit of melted chocolate effect)
  • Sprinkle Salt and Vinger spice to taste
Put on your favourite dvd (in my case:  Love Actually) and you are ready to indulge in your perfect bowl of asscorn...

Beware:  Asscorn is Addictive!!!


After a certain not-so-anonymous-follower seemed shock that I did not speak about Smartcorn in this post I've decided to update the recipe for her..

*Astro's can be replaced by any of the following:
  • Smarties (for Smartcorn)
  • Jelly Tots (for Jellocorn)
  • Any small sweets or chocolates you like :) 

Spring has Sprung

My favourite day of the year has arrived...

I love how God shows us that seasons pass and that after difficult (cold and dark) times, there will always be beautiful blossoms again...:)

What I love about Spring...

  • The flowers

  • How everything comes to live...

  • Pretty shoes and toenails

  • Smiles all around

Happy Spring Day.  May your days be filled with blossoms and your dreams grow like bean sprouts or something like that.

And remember: 

 "A little Madness in the Spring Is wholesome even for the King".~Emily Dickinson
