basically what my job involves.

Sometimes, I listen to Yann Tiersen accordion music on my headphones, and if I stare at my feet for long enough while I’m walking, I can pretend I’m in Paris. Then I wonder what I’d get up to in Paris. I think I’d start by riding a bicycle, although I wouldn’t do it for long because that involves being on roads and as we ALL know, I’m not good at crossing roads as I’m nearly always hit by a...
i studied caffeine for a while.
[From the British Psychological Society Research Digest (it arrives in my inbox every now and then and makes me feel clever and reminds me of the old psychology days. sigh. My entire undergraduate dissertation was on the effects of caffeine on the consolidation of memory.)] Coffee helps women cope with stressful meetings but has the opposite effect on men If a meeting becomes stressful, does it...

a letter to clothes.
Dear Clothes, Hope you are well. Just thought I’d write you a quick message to let you know that I’m getting paid tomorrow. This means that I will be buying you. I hope you don’t mind my contacting you in this way, but I felt it was necessary. Thanks for all your help and support over the years. Hope to see you soon. Ben.
things my job has taught me.
One thing that my job is definitely helping with is my geographical knowledge of the USA. Seriously - I can now (according to Sporcle; that prestigious self-examination tool) name nearly all of the states AND label them on a map. I keep forgetting Wyoming and Kentucky. Not that it’s a massive problem. And I also actually don’t need to know all this information but my constant trawling...

Read this. Then read this. Pretty late for jumping on the let’s-all-hate-Liz-Jones bandwagon but BETTER LATE THAN NEVER. And I have admitted no hate of my own. I just drew a comparison between LOLs.
i need to write more.
There are two reasons for this. 1) I seem to be just re-posting hilarious pictures from other people’s blogs and then writing inane comments below them. This is not exactly stellar blogging. 2) Aesthetically, I prefer to look at my blog when it has sections of text interspersed with pictures, rather than just PICTURE PICTURE PICTURE funny comment PICTURE. It makes me feel more at one with...
look at this man's house. →
I want to live there after he’s moved out/died/become so unbelievably stylish he just melts into the ether.
oh look i made some resolutions.
NY Resolutions, in no particular order: 1) Cease the use of the word ‘like’ in the middle of sentences when it is completely unnecessary. You know what I mean - when you say, like, stuff like this. (This can also be expanded to include the use of the word ‘random’ when I actually mean ‘unexpected’ or ‘somewhat of a surprise’.) 2) Expand music...
