7 Random Facts You Probably Didn't Know

I've been tagged, so here are 7 random facts you probably didn't know. If I leave a comment in your blog, you've been tagged and you have to post 7 random facts!!! Have fun finding them!
Stressed, my dears, is dessert spelt backwards...coincidence? Hmm. I suppose you get stressed when you can't find the right pudding. Or there isn't any. Or your sister got there first <coughcough>
There is approxmiately one chicken for every human being in the world. Well, that's fair. Never exceed that, though, guys, because if you have more than one chicken...you'd better say sorry to everyone else, at any rate, in case it was their chicken.
There is a special name for phobia of teeth - odontophobia.
In Alaska it is actually illegal to look at a moose from a flying vehicle. Really weird. I wonder what would happen? Jailtime? Fine? And how would they know, anyway? Is there a special job you can get that is basically going round making sure no one is looking at mooses from flying vehicles? I would take that job!
When Ke$ha performs in the UK she becomes Ke£ha! (Okay, I just made that one up. Give me a break!)
The voice of Bugs Bunny, Mel Blanc, was allergic to carrots! This person was not fated to be Bugs Bunny. I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you.
It is impossible to cry in space because as there is no gravity, the tears won't flow! So let's all live in space, where there's no point being mean to people cos they can't cry!

Meet the Adverts

Right now I am watching My Name Is Earl. And obviously writing. Well, actually, the TV is advertising...kit-kats? But it's showing some random guy smashing stuff up! What's that got to do with kit-kats? Oh, right. Take a break with kit-kats. How stupid was I?
And now, some angelic + some dramatic music is playing and someone is cooking with lurpak. 
Ugh, Domino's pizza. I hate those ads. I remember when they sponsored X-Factor, or was it Britain's Got Talent? One of them.
Smallville ads. I wonder what that's about. 
Anyway, My Name Is Earl is back on now, so I'm gonna watch it.

My Inspirations

Now what I want you to remember as you read this is that all of this is JUST MY OWN OPINION! If you disagree with me that's fine you don't need to be offended. I mean, sometimes I disagree with me, but I don't get offended. (I have multiple personalities, if that explains anything.)

Adele - inspiring
Wooden boat - uninspiring
Justin Bieber - inspiringly rubbish singer
Hayley Williams - inspiringly good singer
Smurf - inspiringly cool
Cinderella - inspiringly uncool

So these are my inspirations. Hayley Williams, by the way, is the lead singer of the ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, AWESOME, AND WICKED rock band Paramore which you will fall in love with if you like rock, alternative or punk music (like me!)
So what are your inspirations and why?

Sweet Relief!!! Then Again, Maybe Not

The moment we've all been waiting for...end of the exams! Unbelievable as it seems, the exams are finally over! We finished off with a French aural and an IT test I completely forgot to revise for. Whoops!
Now all I have is 14 tests to look forward to next year.
And then some mock GCSEs, and suddenly, I'll be doing the proper GSCEs! And that's not the end...A levels. Then college. Or whatever.
Does the madness never end?

Self-Portrait of me Under Extreme Pressure

I did not draw this but it is an amazing illustration of me trying to do my homework!!!
I know, you're probably thinking, nothing could be so bad! But maths isn't exactly my strongest point. I know how sorry you're feeling for me right now. 
Either that, or your really, REALLY mean, and laughing evilly right now. If that's what you're doing, let me get one thing straight - one day, maths will destroy you too!
Oh, you may think you can always outsmart this evil villain...but you're wrong. So very wrong. He has so many methods of...evilness.

Method 1:
Yes. Algebra. So confusing. (Well, I am just in the stages of:
So how can I possibly not be destroyed by that...thing...up there?)

Method 2:
That's supposed to be pi. I dread it. It came up in my maths test, and we haven't even learned it yet. Am I supposed to be impressed?

Method 3:
Co-ordinates. These things are deadly. I mean, what if you were stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing but a map and the co-ordinates of where you were? If you didn't understand co-ordinates, you'd be dead. DEAD, I tell you! (At least until you stumbled across the road and got help)

Method 4:
I think saying there are 144 times tables you're supposed to know off by heart is enough to have you convinced.

Method 5:
Sorry, that shouldn't be there. Straight lines wouldn't destroy you. I was just thinking of the time my maths teacher spent 2 whole lessons showing us how to draw straight lines. We are 12-year-youngs. I think we know how to use rulers.

Doctor Who Rules (Except this episode)

If I'm honest - and I try to be as honest as I can...sometimes - tonight's Doctor Who felt really short. I'm not saying it was really good. Nor am I saying that it wasn't good, mind you. 
There's always a but. Life is a long line of buts, really. "You can go out and play but you have to be back by tea time." It's like nothing can be said without a few conditions along with it. 
So back to the but...
RIVER SONG and MELODY POND? One and the same? I'm sorry. They just can't be. I mean, everything fits but it's just not right. I mean, come on! River Song is older than Amy. And Rory. How...What...Where...When...WHY???
I feel slightly guilty here but I have to admit that I don't like the idea of River being so important to the story...she's always annoyed me.
But hey. You don't have to agree with me. 
As you can see, 
we have another but
over here.  Would it 
count as a condition? You
tell me.

The Search of the Marshmallows

You wouldn't have thought it would be so hard to find a pack of marshmallows.
I mean, in the half term me and my family went camping for the week in Kent. We were less than 2 hours away from London, where I live. But anyway. The campsite we were staying at was pretty cool. (It's called Welsummer if you're interested) You could camp either on these 2 fields, or in the forest. Each pitch had a place you could light a fire, and singin round it was encouraged!!! So anyway, we wanted to toast some marshmallows.
We were in Tenterden for a day after a failed trip to Leeds Castle so we stopped by at Waitrose to pick up marshmallows. My sister and me spent half an hour wandering round the sweet section looking for them. Then, the genius that I am, I had the AMAZING idea of looking at those labels that you get under each food. I found the marshmallow label, but there were no marshmallows. 
Very suspicious. 
Sold out? Unbelievable. 
We tried W.H.Smiths next, as they usually sell sweets. Alas, they only had Galaxy bars (they are like, my favourite chocolate but not suitable for toasting, I'm afraid). We had to leave Tenterden by that time as it was getting late. On the way back we looked out for shops. Costcutters? Nothing. Tesco's? Nothing! 
How many people in Kent can all need marshmallows at the same time? 
Finally we stopped for petrol and my dad found a pack of marshmallows...the last in the shop!
But at least we had a nice evening around the fire toasting those marshmallows and EATING THEM!!!
Mwa ha ha ha ha! 
P.s. I am sorry to all the marshmallows I ate for ending their poor lives. If you happen to know their families please pass on the apologies.
