Ever seen a peacock fly? Me neither

I’d describe this week as crummy. I’ve been a gloomy goose, grumpasaurus and acted like Eeyore. There is no particular reason that I can think of, but it has been meh. Despite this, it is still important to never take yourself too seriously, and always laugh. Here are the stories that made me giggle this week and will hopefully make you laugh too.

?Tired of committing social faux pas? Here’s how to stand in 50 different situations

I think most of us know how to stand in an elevator, but there are other situations when you ask yourself, what do I do with my hands (just me?) Well this dude has kindly put together a video so that we have to worry no more.

Here’s how to stand in 50 different situations.

I always wish I had the guts to just start singing in an elevator. Kind of like Jim Carey in Fun with Dick & Jane. I read somewhere that this is how Stephen Colbert got over stage fright.

Here are some tweets I thought were worth sharing this week

?When you discover the true meaning behind a nursery rhyme

Well, I’m a 33 year old and I just realised this. Does that make me the winner?


?Have you ever seen a peacock fly? Well, you will soon…

Same here. It looks like a phoenix.

↗️Saved you a click

Buzzfeed is the best at headlines but Saved You A Click hilariously shows how a headline from Buzzfeed can be click bait.

?️How to become a great proofreader

Every single time.


?Shoppers are buying clothes for the gram & then returning them

People are “buying” clothes, posting pics on Instagram and then returning them. That’s like posting a picture of a cake that you don’t eat, a private jet you don’t take a flight on (Lil Bow Wow) or a screenshot of someone else’s Fitbit report. By insinuating, there is deception. But then again I think most of us know this? Sort of.

In this study, they found that most of these people were between 35-44 and that men outnumbered women! (They didn’t include teens in this survey, but still!)

I’ve come up with some new hashtags that these people should start using: #ReturnPolicy #NotReallyMine #OnLoan #FamousOnInstgram #RichInMonopoly (that last one may not apply. I am fully aware that there are rich instafluencers out there).

I'd love to chat to you some more.
