Occassionally my mind gets carried away with whimsy and nonsense, and sometimes it gets carried away by something more interesting. Writing about whatever's on my mind is a good way to clear my mind so I can focus on Pokemon, boobies, and beer.
I think that the difference between men and women is never more apparent than when faced with the task of buying gifts.
Whilst buying gifts for my mother, or girlfriend, or 'girl-pals' requires weeks or forethought and planning, buying gifts for guys is a much simpler affair. For instance, here in the UK, father's day is coming up. It's still over a week away and I hadn't even thought about what I am going to get him but I stumbled across something in the shops today which I immediately knew was the perfect gift.
It was.... drumroll... a 3.5kg jar of pickled onions.
Straight away I knew it was perfect. I'll let you know what he thinks next week. :D
Recently, I saw a guy wearing a t-shirt which proclaimed that during his participation in the 'Sex Olympics', he emerged as the U.K. champion. Now, clearly this is intended to humourously imply that he is good at sex. But I think it fails to do so because the olympic games are an international event. So to be the U.K. champion is not actually that much of an achievement. It's like saying, "I'm good at sex... but not that good".
Now this might be funny to a somebody below the age of 16... but for a grown man to be wearing it, in what was quite a fancy bar, strikes me as slightly pathetic.
It's not the only example of an ill-advised 'witty' t-shirt I've seen. I used to know a guy who wore this beauty on a tshirt:
I don't even.
I also cringe whenever I see "FBI: Female Body Inspector" t-shirts.
Today for the first time in a long time, I have the house to myself. This is a rare occurrence these days and so I am going to make the most of it by walking around my house in a state of semi-undress and generally doing NOTHING! :)
Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaah. This also means that my blogging might be cut short due to
Like all British people I drink a lot of tea. Some say too much, but I say that there is no such thing as too much. And sometimes with my hectic and stressful life, I end up drinking coffee instead, but what I really love is tea. It is bloody delicious. Nice 'n strong. No sugar. Tiny bit of milk.
I mainly drink breakfast tea, but I also like green tea, jasmine tea and rooibois.
People never change their minds. OK, they do, but not often. Even when presented with devastatingly powerful evidence, people still cling onto their convictions. This is well known in science.... In science, people rarely change their minds about theories they hold dear, it's just that eventually all the people who support the bad theories die and are replaced by new generations of scientists who have been brought up on the newer, better theories. If you want a recent example, look up the "Steady State" vs. "Big Bang" theories. The "Steady State" theory has been long forgotten, nowadays, not because its exponents were ever convinced by the "Big Bang" theory, but because they died.
Another example is theism vs. atheism. It is extremely rare to see somebody switch sides. But anyway,what got me thinking about this is that on the rare occasion that we have an argument, it always follows a predictable formula which looks something like this:
The loop doesn't go on forever though. I try to brake the cycle by changing the subject... this works for a while until we dive back into the argument. :D It's a good job I love her (and she's hot).
Anyway, I don't think I can be bothered to write any more and you certainly can't be bothered to read it.
Things have been pretty quiet on here for the past week or so because I am right in the middle of exams. 3 down, 3 to go. They're all going well so far, and hopefully this is a trend that will continue.
I assure you that by the end of next week, I'll be back into the blogosphere to carry on with my usual onslaught of wit and wisdom.
