I’ve recently attended a wedding. I forgot how fun, free and happy weddings can be, especially catching up with friends and watching the bride or groom potentially throw their life away whilst also feeling genuinely strangely happy for them at the same time, whilst at the same time you inevitably wait for your own special day. One thing I did notice, however, was a large amount of jealousy floating around. Some people will be direct about it… and some people won’t. The people that are direct about it? – Fair game… they explain their reasons.
The people that don’t? They stay mostly quiet… but you can feel it. You can sense it from the way they are looking at you, people, the couple to be wed. What are they thinking? Are they thinking that they wish that they didn’t play hard to get with the person that truly liked them for who they were? Are they thinking that they wish they never decided to do something that they know they will regret but are too full of themselves to think about someone that cares about them? Who knows! Anyway…
Here for you I have a Wedding/Family Jealousy themed Demotivational Monday! Happy Demotivational Monday to you!
Don’t put porn up on a busy video billboard in Russia. The Russian authorities don’t take anything lightly.
Paul has brought up another interesting topic as of late. Nando’s – is it middle class food? I think it is. A short debate started in the office, and one side thought that it was classed as “fast food” and one side classed it as middle-class. But how do you define fast food and middle class? Does one define “fast food” because it’s fast, or because it’s cheap? Or (as one person put it) because you pay up front?!
I personally take two things into account here, quality and speed. Nando’s doesn’t get to you quickly, you can be waiting up to around 30 minutes on a bad day, and the quality of food is far higher than a McDonalds, a Colonel or a King which all fail miserably in both quality but excel in speed, which surely = fast food, no?!
Pffff whatever. We’ll eventually work out some mathematical equation for this!
In the wake of the horrific 8.9 earthquake to rip though Japan, our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends affected.
However, I can’t help but notice that there is now effectively very little coverage of the conflict in Libya. I for one, actually still want to know what’s happening over there. I logged on to the BBC News website before, only to find one small measly box with a link to a generic coverage and articles page.
I couldn’t help but notice that the link to the live coverage of the Japan tsunami had effectively hijacked the Libya coverage page:
I believe that due to the immense lack of attention that Libya is now getting, peace will probably just be restored as no-one is paying any attention, and has been demoted to as much attention as the police would give a suspicious man on a bike in London with too many flashing lights on his helmet.
