Things I Have Learnt From Twitter Today….

Whenever I go on Twitter these days, it’s usually on my Blackberry when I’m stuck in traffic, or my mum is droning on about something I can’t be arsed listening to; oh the joys of living back at home. But today, during a rather quiet day in the office – Now I have a ‘proper’ job, I can’t just spend hours social networking – I decided to have a browse of the ‘Trending Topics.’

I’ve never been one to bother with Trending Topics, as they’re usually just some rubbish like #OMGIfIWereAnAnimalIWouldBe or something equally as moronic. “LOL.” But after exhausting my Timeline and STILL having 1 hour 29 minutes before home time, I thought I’d have a little nosy… and here’s what I have learnt. I’m actually quite impressed.

  • Percy Pig now has a brand of ice cream. Those delicious pink pig faces have been frozen, mixed with all sorts of other calorific ingredients and sold in Marks & Spencer.
  • Pete Doherty has gone to jail for possession of cocaine. Naughty
  • Gail Porter has been sectioned under the mental health act after cutting her chest and arms in her bathroom.
  • Waterstones bookstore chain has been sold for £53m. Great huh? But not when you take into account that that’s the selling price of one Fernando Torres. The world is MENTAL.
  • The Queen has made it to Cork without being assassinated by terrorists.
  • Skater Girl Avril Lavigne has released a video for her single ‘Smile’. Everyone seems to be going on about it… as I’m in the office, I don’t think blasting out some pop punk would go down very well, so I’ll have to find out the big news on that one when I go home, or I get to my sisters, who has one of these iPhones where you can ACTUALLY watch videos. I know, how amazing is that?

Finally, something is happening on the Worldwide TT with some bloke called Joaquín Sabina. All the gossip is in a foreign language though, and Google isn’t giving me anything… can anyone help? I’ll never sleep tonight otherwise.



Rafal Nadal & Megan Fox Semi-Naked. Thank The Lord…

Cristiano Ronaldo was the last guy to bare all with Megan Fox for an Armani campaign, but now she’s teamed up with tennis ace / superhunk Rafael Nadal for these saucy snaps.

If you thought your weekend couldn’t get off to a better start than listening to Chris Moyle’s Golden Hour and eating a sausage and egg buttie, then think again, because these cheeky pictures will definitely put a smile on your face.

Yes, so Nadal makes us want to leg it down to Wimbledon and get our hands on some furry balls, but Megan Fox… wow. What a babe. I want her figure, I want her tattoos, she’s just incredible. I wish I’d not eaten that breakfast buttie now….

What do you think? Good start to the weekend?

OMG! The Fitties From The Inbetweeners Are On A UK Road Trip

Those mega-babes from The Inbetweeners (I still can’t decide which one I would want to go on a date with) are going to be back on ouir screens just in time for Comic Relief, as they do their bit for charity. Ah, I’m all warm and fuzzy already!

The lads will be taking their trusty yellow Fiat on a road trip to find some of the rudest places in Britain, beginning at none other than London’s Bush Lane, and have 50 hours to drive around the country and locate 50 places with rude sounding names.

Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison are keeping a video diary via the Red Nose Day YouTube channel, and we’ve got to admit, its compelling viewing, especially since they’ve already found Fannys Lane, Sally Pussys Inn, Twatley and Cock Street.

But, they’ve still got loads more to find, is there anywhere near you that the boys should visit? Oh, and we’ve decided James Buckley is our favourite.

Thanks Mum. Now I’m Addicted To The Event.

Quite why my mum didn’t think I’d be out getting hammered and tottering around town in ridiculous heels like 23 year olds do on a Friday night is beyond me, but at about half 7 last Friday good old Moma Harrison rang me to tell me I had to watch The Event.

To be honest, I was a little dubious about the show – considering the critics were calling it ‘the new Lost’ and I hated Lost – but I thought I’d give it a go anyway, after all, I only had a bottle of Merlot and the dog for company.

I’m kinda glad I did though, because I thought it was pretty ace. I’ve never been a fan of TV shows that bring in aliens (just like I thought walking and talking trees ruined Lord Of The Rings) because I hate not being able to actually believe in the plot of the story… because Jack Bauer is SO believable, obviously.

Did anyone else watch it? Have you got any ideas as to what on Earth could be going on yet? And does anyone else find it slightly annoying that we keep seeing the same bits over and over again?


Is It Katy Perry Or Katie Price? All I know Is We Need The Fashion Police…

Uh-Oh, I just stumbled across this picture of Katy Perry from her appearance on The Today Show, and at first glance I was like; “Hasn’t Katie Price worn that already?”

Shockingly though, it looks as though Katy Perry has been raiding Katie Price’s wardrobe after we spied a very similar outfit on the glamour girl at one of her many book launches.

Personally I’m not a fan, but do you think Katy with a ‘Y’ can get away with things that Katie with an ‘IE’ cannot?

Nooooo! Orlando Bloom Is Getting Married

That’s it ladies, the dream is over, Orlando Bloom is taking himself off our list of eligible bachelors and traipsing down the aisle with some bird called Miranda Kerr.

The pair might have been together for three months, but I’m sure – like me – you always hoped that Orlando would come knocking at your door one Sunday afternoon with a bunch of flowers and bottle of champagne, well now the dream is over after he’s popped the question to his lady of three years.

Despite the model frequently denying she had any plans to wed the actor, she was spotted wearing a sparkly ring on her wedding finger in February and Orlando’s spokesperson yesterday confirmed the couple “are getting married”.

Oh well, back to Sebastian Vettel.

Cristiano Ronaldo Gets Naked. There Is A God.

Cristiano Ronaldo has never really been a guy I’ve fancied, but after having these pictures land in my inbox first thing this morning I’ve got to admit, I drooled a little bit.

I guess being dumped over the phone has given me the right to perve over blokes in their underwear… I mean, I deserve it. I feel like Lisa Kudrow’s character in PS. I Love You – justifiably perving over a man because I’ve been hurt too much by other males. Well, that’s how I’m justifying it, and I’m sticking to it.

The pictures come with massive thanks to Giorgio Armani, who has used Cristiano for the second season as the official worldwide testimonial for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans, coinciding with Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 advertising campaign.

So, who else is setting this as their desktop background right now?
