My Sticky Dating Situation: Familiar Faces

In honour of my Love Thy Pits Giveaway which ends tomorrow night, i am going to share with you my very own sticky dating situation. It's more of a story but it's 100% true so here goes...

For about half a year in secondary school (that's high school, for all you Americans), i had this on/off thing going on with a boy in my class. It was never anything serious and never actually resulted in a boyfriend and girlfriend situation. It was just the odd kiss here and there, we flirted a lot and we were really good friends.

When school was over we both ended up attending different colleges and never saw each other again, until one day, when Facebook came to town. Can i just say how thankful i am that Facebook was not really well known when i was in school, it would have made puberty so much more painful!

Anyway back to me and the boy. A couple of years later i was on Facebook when i saw that i had a friend request from a guy that looked really familiar. He'd lost weight, got a funky hairstyle and become very much the fashionista. As i was perusing his photos, (being a nosey parker) i saw quite a few of him with his arm around other extremely well dressed guys. Hmmmm?

Yep sure enough, he is as gay as they come! Secretly, i think i always knew he was, he always had a great dress sense. I can only hope i wasn't the one to put him off girls for good.

If you have a sticky dating situation to share click here and leave it as a comment. You could win a $75 dollar spa voucher plus a stick of Mitchum's deodorant.

London's burning and it's spreading across the country

Tuesday, 9 August 2011 7 comments

If you haven't already heard about the troubles in England right now then this should give you an idea:

This is a post for all those people who are rioting in Manchester, Liverpool, London, Nottingham, Wolverhampton and anywhere else in England. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You think stealing, arson and abuse will solve anything? It won't! There are people fighting for their lives in war torn countries across the world right now, and you are fighting over TVs and Nike trainers. It's disgusting and frightening. 

You think that looting shops and burning down people's businesses makes you a big man/woman? It makes you an ignorant idiot. You are burning shops that families have built up for years, burning buildings that house innocent people and destroying the economy further. I'm all for fighting for a cause, but this is just a free for all. Enough is enough.

Sorry to rant, but i had to get that out. This is terrifying and i hope it stops soon.

Uncle Joe's Minty Balls

Uncle Joe's Mint Balls Factory

My commute to work is a drag, but there's one thing that never fails to catch my attention as i pass by. A giant red pornographic sign, painted onto the side of the above building, telling me how great Uncle Joe's balls are. This mysterious sign made me curious for weeks. Who the hell is Uncle Joe and why the heck are his balls so minty?

For months i pondered, until i realised that the supermarket was hiding the answer to the riddle of Uncle Joe.

One night, after a long day's work i was on a hunt for sugar, sweets and E numbers to perk me up, when there, nestled on the bottom shelf of the forbidden aisle, between boiled sweets and sherbet straws was a shiny vintage looking tin can with Uncle Joe, the ball man himself slapped on the front.

There was only one thing for it. I bought the balls! I sucked on the balls and let me tell you now, they're pretty darn minty.

Who knew that Uncle Joe's balls were actually sweets! And here i was, thinking Uncle Joe was a dirty old man.

They even have a Mint Ball song, which is hilarious!

"Give 'em to your Granny and watch the beggar go. Away with coughs and sniffles, take a few in hand, suck 'em and see, you'll agree they're the best in all the land!"

Now that i know Uncle Joe isn't a pervert, it's kind of refreshing to see a company with a sense of humour who's not afraid to be a little 'out there'.

Before you go, please take a minute of your time to nominate me for the Cosmo Blog Awards 2011. I need as many nominations as possible. All you have to do is click the big pink Cosmo button in the top right of my sidebar. It's easy, you don't even have to sign up! Just enter my blog URL and your email address and press submit.
