The ghost selfie

Ever taken a ghost selfie?

The selfie where you miss yourself

 


A soft bump

when angels collide with people
I have my work friend to thank for this one.

She looked at my arm and said, ‘You’ve been bumped by an angel.’ Not understanding, I said rather intelligently (not), ‘Huh?’ She plucked the lone feather which was stuck to my jacket and showed me. It made me smile. Hope this cartoon makes you smile too.

And an important message for current followers of this site. I’ve finally plucked the courage to change over from this WordPress hosted site to self hosting. What does this mean for current WordPress followers of this site? It means that you’ll receive an alert when I convert. If you wish to still keep in touch (and I’d love you too as it might be rather lonely out there), then you’ll be promoted to re-subscribe. For current email followers, there’s no change as the emails will continue.

Why the change? I feel that I’ve outgrown the current environment and want to have more freedom with the development of my site. I have no skill set, so I’ll have to learn as I go. Rather than a well thought out plan, it’s a bit more like a leap of faith. Wish me luck and hopefully you’ll join me.

 


Eight instances of self indulgence

Octo-selfie

Next generation selfie? You could make a full 3D selfie model out of this.


Where it all started

Selfie stick caveman styleAh, the selfie stick. Will it define our generation in years to come?

Not all are on board with the selfie stick. London music venue halls in Wembley are banning the selfie stick as it is considered a safety hazard to others surrounding the stick user, especially in crowded halls. Disruption to people’s view of the performances was another reason cited for the banning of the stick.

So what do you think?

Do you own one (but are too shy to admit it – fear not – you can come out here in a safe environment called the internet) or

Do you own one and brandish it everywhere you go with great pride and gusto?

PS. If you leave a comment below, I might just quietly share with you whether or not I own one.

Careful what you wish for…

The Grinch's Christmas presentLove a good Dr. Seuss book. Here are a few fun facts you mightn’t know about this talented man:

  • His real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel and had other pen names prior to staying with Dr Seuss – Dr. Theophrastus Seuss, Theo LeSieg and Rosetta Stone
  • Although the Grinch is specific character in a Dr. Seuss book, it is now commonly used to refer to people displaying a similar distain to Christmas
  • He married twice, but had no children. The irony would lead people to ask, Why no kids? He used to answer, ’You have ‘em; I’ll entertain ‘em.’
  • The Cat is the Hat was inspired after a text book editor read an article in Life magazine about the high rate of illiteracy amongst children. He commissioned Dr Seuss to write a book for kids to read. the catch was, he was only to use the 250 words provided to him by the editor.
