Charity porn helped raise over $1m for Australia

I won’t make a 2020 vision joke because then I would have to punch myself in the face, so instead, I will wish you a Happy New Year! I hope that you all had time to rest and that this year will be a good one. I went to Limpopo to visit the family, read, swam as much as I could (without getting seriously sunburnt – that’s got to be some kind of record) and started re-watching the Harry Potter movies. I also got my Christmas movie fix (The Muppets Christmas Carol is one of the best out there) and played board games. My favourite being Harry Potter Cluedo, where you get to travel via floo powder. I started work on Monday so I’m back into the swing of things. And that includes Bytesized (albeit a few days late because Sam decided go on holiday last week).

New year, new you

It’s time to start meditating.

Charity porn: this lady raised over $1m by sending nudes to anyone who donated $10 or more to help put out the Australian bushfires

The news and social media feeds have been filled with horrific images of Australia burning not to mention awful pics of koalas and other animals. The Naked Philanthropist sent anyone who donated to a charity helping out a nude pic via DM. But remember sharing this is considered revenge porn and you will be sued. She even tweeted about it.

The Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais, being true to himself, didn’t hold anything back.  If you haven’t seen the intro or just want a laugh, check out the video below. My favourite is the paedophile jokes and the line “I don’t care. Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t my friend, he was yours”. Brilliant.

They only served plant-based food at the Golden Globes. No idea why people get so offended, meat-eaters can eat veggie food but not vice versa. Also, it looked flippen’ delicious.

Succession won a Globe for Best Drama and best actor. My S/O and I binge-watched it over the weekend and it was brilliant (Showmax has Season 1 and 2). It is 18 for a reason but it is really funny and shows how ‘effed up the 1% really are (because I would know).

Awkwafina won best actress for The Farewell. A friend told me to listen to the podcast, where the family didn’t tell their grandmother she had cancer. This is the movie based on that. The gran found out she had cancer by watching the movie. Listen to the podcast here.

And as we enter a new decade, just remember that this truly was the worst thing to happen

And if you don’t want the past to taint the future, listen to Coconut Kelz

I read her book last year and it had me laughing out loud.
