Things I Love Thursday: 12 Sep

Here’s what’s been floating my boat this week ­čÖé

  • Researching all things Paleo! This meal planning template was a particularly useful find.
  • Pinterest funnies, especially this:

  • ┬áCelebrating the birthday of my best friend since forever on the weekend. Friendship established 1992 & still going strong!
    Nina's birthday

    Here we are as chubby-faced primary schoolers ­čÖé

  • LOVE GRIT! Is it a tough workout? Here’s my post-GRIT face… Pooped!post grit
  • This Paleo Pizookie recipe with this banana ice cream recipe… Decadent but still a tick in the technical paleo book!

Paleo pizookie

  • And on banana ice cream: OMG!? I’d seen this article from The Kitchn before but just thought it was a bit of a beat up, or that I’d need some fancy-schmancy Thermomix-style blender. Ahhh no! It is pure magic! I shared the recipe with a workmate & he’s now using it as a bribery tool with his toddler. Bribery with just a frozen, blended banana – so simple! Just make it. You’ll see.

Kids these days

Girl’s Facebook status: “Omg I love you Kurt!”
Male friend: “Are you listening to Nirvana?”
Girl: “Ah no. I’m watching Glee.”

Blog Love: The Man Repeller

Deadset loving The Man Repeller! The concept behind the blog?

“outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see:┬áhuman repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.”

Sums up my fashion philosophy right there really: Dress for yourself, not for anyone else (except maybe your grandma on her 87th birthday)

About this Chanel number, ┬áThe Man Repeller says “I call this one straitjacket chic. Girlfriend is going to one fancy mental asylum in that sequin adored number.” Love it.

A note to future lovers…

…Don’t go too hardcore on the hickeys:

“A woman was partially paralysed by a love bite from her amorous partner, a New Zealand doctor has reported…┬áThere was a clot in the artery underneath where the hickey was.┬áThe clot had gone into the woman’s heart and caused a minor stroke that led to the loss of movement.”

Little Wayne thinks the bible is “deep”

Ah rappers.

Fresh out of the slammer, Little Wayne has told reporters (via SMH) that during his (eight) months behind bars he devoured plenty of books including biographies of fellow performers Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, and Anthony Kiedis. One addition to his library check-out though really blew him away. Yes, Lil’ Wayne kicked back in the big house with a copy of the bible.

When asked what he thought of the tome, the rapper said that while he thought it was “deep”, it also had some “cool” moments:

“It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he’d be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool.”

And with conjugal visits off the menu, he also had the chance to become a mad Uno player. So mad in fact that his fellow jailbirds would sneak off to play without him.

“They’d be like, ‘Oh, we thought you were asleep,’,” Wayne said. He would reply: “Like you can’t look inside my cell and see that I’m right there! We ain’t got no doors!”

“I’d bust a n—-‘s ass at Uno. We gamble for phone time. I’d take n—-‘s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”

Given Little Wayne’s time was served for gun offenses, hopefully he keeps using the Uno deck as his best weapon.

Ah rappers. Let this be a lesson kids: stay in school.
