I can’t believe no-one guessed the answer to last week’s phrase association question, I don’t know, do none of you read the news? ;o) The answer was, in case you were wondering, that they were all phrases that politicians and celebrities have used to cover up their extra-marital affairs. You’ll never be able to look at a badger in the same way again…
And so onto this week’s madness:
1. So is it irony or cunning planning that a $1m jewel heist was carried out in Cannes on the day that they were showing Sofia Coppola’s new film The Bling Ring, where a bunch of high school students find out about when celebrities are on the red carpet so they can break into their homes and steal their designer clothes, bags and shoes?
2. I had a rather surreal moment this week while sitting in a meeting. One of my colleagues had forgotten to turn off his phone before coming into the meeting, and as the Ghostbusters theme song played out while he fumbled to find it, in the background, 3 council workers were walking past the window armed with strimmers and leaf blowers, complete with power back packs…
3. I got an interesting visual in my head this week when I read the headline about a cruise ship getting stranded in Oban. Envisaging a behemoth like last week’s offering towering over the CalMac ferries, the crowds of local sailing boats and fishing boats, and casting a dark shadow over the town, I opened the article only to see…
|Hmm, think CalMac can rest safe!|
4. Have you ever lain down and just looked up at the sky? Since I’ve been doing Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred this week, during the ‘Abs’ phases as I’m lying there ‘crunching’ I can look out my new windows and see all sorts of aircraft flying by – who knew the airspace over the centre of Glasgow was so populated!
5. Dress down Friday can be a bit of a revelation, and not in a good way! As one of my more, um, mature colleagues had the proverbial mercilessly ripped out of him for his choice of rather psychedelic floral shirt (he blamed his wife, but I doubt it somehow ;o) ), it brought about the conversation about what age one should stop wearing certain things (it should be noted that our youngest team member was sporting a plain white t-shirt and jeans, rather putting the rest of us to shame!) So at what age should men stop wearing psychedelic shirts, t-shirts with slogans more suited to the average 13-year-old, and anything neon?
here's something random – I've just got back from Oban and that ship was the view from our hotel window!
The ghostbusters one had me laughing out loud 🙂 I have really come to look forward to Thursdays
Men should never wear *those* shirts! Yes, the Ghostbusters randomness most hilarious 🙂
You know this post has been the highlight of my week. I'm not even going to ask what I missed with the whole badger thing. And neon and anyone of any age should be outlawed – unless they're digging up a motorway or doing community service of some kind!
Whaaaat is it with cruise ships becoming stranded? It happened to a few near here recently, one for about a week. I couldn't even watch the news as people were sharing photos via their phones and the news shows were sharing those, and things were quite biological and gross.
I used to have th A-Team theme on my phone. It went off during a meeting. I said "Sorry, I have a mission" and walked out. It was just the restaurant confirming reservations for our group and I was right back, but my boss's boss was in there and I think he was wondering if I was a bit loony (of course I am 🙂
Hope there wasn't any whisky on board that ship!
Ha ha what a bizarre week! I would have liked to have seen the Ghostbusters walking down the street!
Hah! Who you gonna call?!
Thursday posts are a highlight 🙂 I think no one should wear anything full of slogans/neon/disco'ish like ever.
Ghostbusters!! ROTFLMAO!! My hubby was known for his Friday shirts, and then others joined in with their loud shirts, I guess his work place didn't mind a bit if colourful behaviour.
Love the ghostbusters one the best, you make me laugh every week with your randomness!
Love these Thursday posts. I'm not ageist, don't care what age people wear anything really but I don't like seeing muffin tops being flashed or builder's bums etc, I could go on..
Jillian Michaels…. Got through 7 days, I think before I just couldn't take it anymore. Maybe it's because she taunts you instead of offering positive encouragement. She knows how evil the workout is and then tells you you're not swearing at her loud enough. I never made it to the second or third levels. LOL.
Laughing madly here at the Ghostbusters reference. That's just a lil bit spooky!
Im going with cunning plan to Number 1….it just seems too much of a coincidence.
I love those Ghostbuster moments! Thanks for waking me up with a laugh!
I don't mind a groovy dad, but I have a skirt theory/equation, that it should always be longer than it is wide!
Love the ghost busters image, and Hadleys skirt rule. I'm ok with most fashion, apart from leggings wirn as trousers with a short top so knickers and or labels can be seen through the stretched fabric, oh and tights under shorts so you can see the denser bit of the tights at the top of the leg. Where was I! Oh yes, planes … Every 3 minutes over my house – I'm 10 minutes from Heathrow!!!!
Loving the Ghostbusters scene – that would've given me goosebumps.
I have the Shred, too – it's a good one. I am back into running now though, so am giving it a rest. Love Jillian though, and her abs!
It would seem I'm not the only one who loved the ghostbuster moment. As for age and dress codes I'm not the one to answer that. When you get to my age anything goes because you really could care less what people wear as long as they're dressed.
These were great visuals. Thanks for linking up again this week. A highlight, as always!
Ha, ha, I like Hadley's response and so agree
Great random as always.
I'm impressed that you didn't crack up when you saw the ghostbusters outside 🙂
No one should ever wear a psychedelic shirt, and what Hadley said about skirts! No one wants to see what you had for breakfast.
Well, my guy insists on wearing tye dyed t-shirts all the time, although not so much when he hangs out with me, which might say something about how I feel about them. I don't think it so much about age as it is about what fits the person and those who have to look at them.
My hubby wears plain white shirts – wish we would wear something a bit more exciting ! Hate ironing white shirts!
