Just another average Thursday

I'm having a bad day. I have a cold, woke up late, missed brekkie, had parking issues, got unnecessarily crapped upon, walked in the rain, and discovered that my favourite boots of all time have a hole in them (so now I have a wet sock). Bleak street. It's at times like these that I often wonder whether or not to blog about my woes. Let's be honest, most of us don't want to hear about other peoples' issues. Which is why I find it so interesting that the increased usage of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc has been linked to what psychologists are referring to as "social media depression". In a nutshell, people feel sad, inadequate or left out when they compare themselves to how they perceive their friends through the internet. Think about it: we never see pics of the unglamorous days or statuses about UTIs and bad breath. We post pics of us having fun, looking awesome and being popular. Sure, there are the occasional my-boyfriend-broke-up-with-me-and-now-I-hate-all-men rants, but the majority of people always appear to be super happy, good-looking, hilarious fashionistas. All.The.Time. And that makes us sad.

Now I'm not suggesting spamming my newsfeed with depressing anecdotes about how much you hate your life – trust me on this, I WILL delete you – but I wouldn't say no to a non-filtered pic every now and then. If I follow you, am friends with you or read your blog, I want to know the good AND the bad, pimples and all. (No seriously, posts of gorgeous people with pimples always make me feel better about my own flaws.) So here's a non-perfect post for all of you: I'm having a bad day. I am human. And I hope that reading this makes you smile (even if it is at my own expense!).

Long live Nick Cage!

It's Friday. And in honour of this awesome day, I am giving you all a gift. That's right! Because I am almost as awesome as Friday is. The other day I was perusing Pinterest and, much to my delight, came across this amazing post:

That's right. It's a picture of Nicolas Cage being creepy (as always) and lurking in the most unsuspecting of places.  Now that's what I call AWESOME! Naturally I decided to do this myself and I have to say that the prank went down a treat. In fact, after about 20 minutes of being in the kitchen, completely missing the looming figure present in the fridge, my beloved finally turns to the toaster and yells "What the Nicolas Cage?!" AWESOME! I still have one stuck behind a picture frame that has yet to be spotted - I'm considering re-sticking them up around the house for about a week, just for funsies! So now it's your turn: I give you your very own Nicolas Cage:

Save it, print it, stick it, and have fun! Long live Nick Cage!

50 Shades of "I quit!"

This is just to let you all know that clearly Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim actor and Christian Grey wannabe) reads my blog. He has officially announced that he will no longer be playing the masochistic sex fiend. Obviously he realised (thanks to my excellent post of course) that he just is not fit to play such a devilishly handsome role. You're welcome Charlie, I'm glad I could help.

Ryan Gosling's Doppelganger

Yes, I've done it! I've found Ryan Gosling's doppelganger! OK, he has a different skin colour but still! When I excitedly shared this amazing discovery with others, most people kind of squinted at the pics and said "Weeeelll.... maybeeee...". They are, of course, complete morons. See for yourselves:

This is Nicholas Strong. You may recognise him from Under The Dome, where he plays Phil Bushey - the super gorgeous radio DJ whose presence totally makes the show. Ok, he actually has a pretty small role and the series could probably go on without him, but whatever!

This is Ryan Gosling. If you don't know who he is then I have no patience for you. Get off my blog!

Now, observe:

Nicholas Strong in sunnies looking all hipster                 Ryan Gosling in sunnies looking all hipster

Nicholas Strong being interviewed in a suit                      Ryan Gosling being interviewed in a suit

Nicholas Strong looking concerned                                   Ryan Gosling looking concerned


Now the only question is, is this an example of a black Ryan Gosling, or a white Nicholas Strong? Hmmm... Chicken and egg anyone?
