You know that weird thing that happens when you’re talking to someone on the phone, and it takes you a while to realise that the call’s accidentally dropped because you were so busy talking… to yourself! What is it about that that is so personally embarrassing? Even if you’re in a room all on your own and nobody else witnessed you talking to yourself like a damned idiot… what is it that makes you feel embarrassed for yourself?
Afro Celt Sound System – Release
Let me know if you’d like to hear more of my all time favourite tracks featured on La Femme Nikita ;@)
A new Dutch website launched this weekend — www.dier-en-mens.nl — is helping animal lovers get together and even find find love – from finding the perfect person to look after your piglets for you when you go on holiday to a partner who’s also batty about snakes.
What a great idea. I wonder if there is something like this in the UK or the States yet?
“I just ate an egg… and my belly sounds like the ocean.”
(For those who know me. Only.) (more…)
Seriously. I haven’t watched anything close to this funny in so long. Kenna, I owe you big time!
Oh and by the way, definitely not safe for work. Unless you have headphones.
What is it about this picture that makes me want to gently take up this little thing in my hands, curl it into a ball and squeeze it to my heart?
Its shiny little eyes and wild matted hair fill me with admiration, because even though we have tried to domesticate this creature for countless generations, it has never lost it’s wild spirit or desire for freedom. Almost every hamster I have ever known has spent countless hours planning and scheming the Great Escape, and most succeed. I only once ever had a hamster as a pet, when I was small and didn’t know any better, and it was the grumpiest and angriest creature I have ever cared for. All night long he would throw things around in his cage in fit or rage, chew at the plastic base relentlessly and rattle at the door, until finally one day his cage dropped off the table, split apart and released him to his freedom… sadly he ran towards freedom straight into the path of my stone blind cat Leila. My mother and brother discovered his toyed with, bloody body lying limply on the floor when they returned home a few hours later. He had come so close… and fought bravely for his life, but with the determination of a man who was also fighting for freedom.
Knowing what I know now, I would never have kept a hamster in captivity. And if for some reason I have to look after someone else’s hamster for a while while they are away, I would do a lot of things differently to make its captive life a lot more enjoyable… (more…)
