Monthly Archives: July 2012
First of all, if there are any copyrights that belong to the Daily Mail, then I acknowledge them all, I would hate to ignore their fine journalism qualities!
I’m showcasing 15 screenshots of the Daily Mail at its finest, all the photos were taken in July and there were many more pointless articles that had either a lack of substance, spelling mistakes, or both in some cases!
Some of the stories are so poorly written, what ever happened to proof-reading? Their articles are full of spelling mistakes and missing words, mostly the online articles consist of this.. Maybe because the article is ‘virtual’ and can be edited at anytime, they feel the need to just publish the rough version? Is that how much they value their readers – we deserve the un-polished version?
One of their ‘apprentices’ shall we call them, is a woman called Samantha Brick, she rose to ‘fame’ after they published her article “women hate me because I’m beautiful”, since then, even after all the bad press and red arrows she has received, the Daily Mail now have her as a writer for them, her latest article is basically about why her best friends should not have the bad taste to honour her as a godmother!
Photo number 12, is a floater. They’re still in the wrong for publishing it, because its one of 2 things, scenario 1 is Miley Cyrus recently got some young dogs, now I myself know that excitable young dogs accidentally scratch your arms and legs, when my dogs were at that not full Adult but not Puppy stage, they are so playful, that they scratch. The Daily Mail claimed that the scratches on Miley’s arm were Self Harm injuries, they did not even mention they could be dog scratches despite the fact they were very irregular for ‘typical’ self injury cuts. But scenario 2, is that Miley did the marks on her arm, which was wrong for tabloids to cling to the ‘Miley is a cutter’ image, because it ridicules the person, rather than helping.
I hope you enjoy these photos!
Comment with your best Daily Fail story!
I feel a little bit like Bridget Jones compiling this list. But it had to be done, I hate feeling like a failure and even though I know that once everything has been achieved on this list, I’ll still be a failure (I’m a typical Capricorn in my feelings).. But at least it shows I can make a list and do something, or it will be on the internet for time and memoriam to prove I can’t even follow a simple list if none of the tasks are completed, no pressure then.
1.) Be more tolerant of people, no matter how annoying they are. If all else fails, watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles to become like Del.
2.)Become fluent (or have the ability to get your point across to someone without the need to use hand gestures and grunting) in at least one language.
3.) Read at least 5 books this summer, you used to love reading and now you don’t enjoy them anymore, your bookshelves at night scream “y u no love us no more?”
4.) Try not to lose anymore friends, remember 2 years ago? You used to be so popular, now you can count your friends on one hand.
5.) Be happy, whether or not you’re always happy, you must always put that on the list, its puts things in to perspective.
6.) Try and get 5000 Twitter followers and 2,000 blog views. Because its fun. But remember to follow each kind individual back, its not nice if you don’t give back.
7.) Try and get more confidence, nobody likes creatures that blend in to the wall like a man on manoeuvres wearing camouflage and wring their hands so much that they’ve counted the specks on the floor.
8.) Empty your e-mail inbox and rue the day that you ever chose Hotmail over Yahoo, at least with Yahoo you could search for emails beginning with “Facebook” and click ‘Delete all’
9.) Curb your jealousy, hard to achieve being a typical Chinese Zodiac Pig, but you don’t want to become the person who puts Cayenne Pepper all over a guests meal because they got the promotion and you didn’t, in later life.
10.) Dare to bare legs and show toes (if the sun pops its head out).. Maybe your toes aren’t as ugly as you think and your legs don’t really resemble chicken thighs… But seriously, who gets cellulite at 16?!
11.) Try and blog earlier in the day.
So starting today, I’m going to get cracking on this list and by September 1st, I shall post a progress (hopefully completion) report!
Comment if you think something should be added to my list, help me get 5,000 followers and feel free to use this list as inspiration for yourself!
Wonders never cease as its still raining in England and the ark jokes have gotten silly and tedious now, instead the country have just stopped sharpening their brooms after Andy Murray fluffed up the Wimbledon mens final! As you all probably know, I didn’t publish on Thursday, I did it unannounced.. I went in to deep hibernation, hoping to find a warm sunny New York in my dreams, sadly I didn’t, so I woke up and snapped back to reality as Eminem once famously said! So let’s get cracking with WRU #7!
This story wasn’t in Manchester (UK), which is a shame because I would have had fun saying “this story really puts the ‘chest’ in ‘Manchester” alas, the story is in Birmingham (MI, USA) and I still got to say my joke! A bra was sold off for £1m in an auction, The blingy boulder holder was encrusted with 500 carat diamonds and 18 carats of Gold, taking over 12 months to make! I think that’s £1m well spent if you have a couple of millions spare lying around!
I am obsessed with dinosaurs, but even up to this point in my life, I like to think that the jurassic Stork brought bouncing 2 tonne bundles of joys to the arms of expectant T-Rex mummies and daddies. Earlier in the week, scientists kindly shattered this wonderful illusion for me, presenting How dinosaurs had coitus – describing every prehistoric detail.. I think I’ll stick to my jurassic Stork illusion!
Speaking of Jurassic (reminding me of Jurassic park), I found out why male mosquitoes don’t bite. They don’t have the equipment to bite, because they don’t need the nutrients in blood, but the female needs blood to complete her eggs!
3 stories, 3 minutes to read.. Enjoy and if you liked that follow me on Twitter! 🙂
That’s all for now!
For the record, I’m not a smoker but for the record I am totally against what the government is doing to the tobacco industry.
I find it strange how one of the largest taxable commodities is being chased in to extinction by smoking, branding and display bans.
The smoking ban was understandable, but perhaps, it was a little over excited, smokers out in the rain (outside), non-smokers in the dry (indoors). Its like a partide for people who have slightly different habits than others.
The impending branding ban, means that all cigarette packets MUST be in plain packaging, supposedly deterring young people from taking it up.. Because people really go “oooh a pretty pink box, I wanna become a smoker!”.. Hmm yes *rolls eyes*.
The ban on display came in to force earlier this year. This means that all tobacco counters, in large shops/supermarkets have to be concealed with unsightly shutters, the idea behind it all, is if something is hidden a person won’t have the desire to want it anymore.. Don’t you remember when you were little and your parents had a ‘forbidden’ cabinet? Maybe it held liquor or money or even porn, didn’t you feel empowered to go in to it and steal/drink whatever was in it? So track back to the present day, they’re making cigarettes ‘forbidden’ from view. Well I’m sorry but I don’t see how that will stop people, in fact I have no desire to smoke, but those shutters are just so tempting!
The ban on advertising, has meant that instead of having Embassy on a Formula 1 racing car, we now have Carling on a racing car, that just screams ‘don’t smoke and drive when you can drink and drive!’
During the last half of 2010 and the first half of 2011, a total of £11.1bn was made, just from cigarettes sales in England. See the figures for yourself for Tobacco tax revenue its shocking.
£11.1bn is a noticeable amount and when the government delve in to their deep deep pockets, they’ll find that those missing billions were actually very important indeed.
What are your views on the bullying of smokers? Have any of these laws affected you? As always drop me a comment and don’t forget to follow me – LeilaniDiana!
As Rihanna said “cheers to the fricken washout weekend”, maybe she didn’t say ‘washout’ but if she was British, she would have done! So sit back, relax and enjoy the double 7 WRU edition 6!
Wimbledon is fairly normal, but this year records have been broken, seeds have been smashed and history has been made. For the first time in Wimbledon history, a Mens singles match was played past 11pm, it was a Murray v Baghdatis match. Going against health and safety wishes, they agreed to play on if someone was a few points away from winning. Keeping true to their word, Murray played on until 11:02pm, in which he won.
Serena Williams and Venus Williams became part of the first women’s doubles to play past 9pm, not going past 11pm though as they won with 10 minutes to spare!
The mens doubles final was a moment in history too, having the first Brit to win the doubles since 1936!
So history is being made all around, its a great time to read up on some Wimbledon facts and then some Federer facts and then some Murray facts ahead of the Mens final! Watch its as history is being made whoever wins!
Here’s my own little joke for the British weather; Had to cross David Cameron and Nick Clegg off the Ark boarding list, to make room for the Addams family!
If you have an Ark joke, comment it!
Not quite a round up, though Wimbledon is Legen-waitforit-Dary!
That’s all for now!
I have the worst sweet tooth in the world, I must confess this. Whether it was because I was born in the year of the pig or I’m just plain greedy or both is still undecided!
I’ve had a slight obsession with sweets for the past 3 months, I know what they say, any infatuation that lasts longer than 3 months is more than just a crush 😉
Anyway, its bad enough where I live has one of the largest Tescos in Europe, I also have a mini local Tescos that stocks the full range of Tesco own brand 3 for £1 sweets. I love them all and its only recenttly I have become like that.
I believe that, what with the rising cost of fuel and the fact that chocolate has to be imported, I have actually gone off the solid brown menace in a brightly coloured wrapper, I was never a large fan of chocolate. I would eat it because it was there, though I didn’t like the way it made me feel, I felt sluggish, sick and like I was getting a cold after eating it. Sweets that don’t contain chocolate or only chocolate flavouring have never made me feel like this.
I think that just like cupcakes have made a boom in the food industry, candy will made its lasting mark too! Prepared to become obsessed!
Not only the brilliant mastermind behind Wikileaks, Julian Assange is the 21st century Robin Hood, ‘stealing’ from the ‘bad guys’ and giving it to those who walk around with their eyes closed.
Today we celebrate the Ausralian born cyber expert’s birthday. Born in Queensland, 3 July 1970. Assange moved a lot during his childhood, hopping school to school then eventually becoming home educated. Always having a strong sense of what’s wrong and what’s right, throughout his life, Julian was always working with computers and trying to get the news that everyone needs to see to light.
I’m not going to contaminate my post with current and past affairs, because you don’t do that. Talking about the alleged happenings, would be me using my birthday blog as a trojan horse. If you’re going to talk about something sensitive then talk about it straight.
What his actions and beliefs mean to me, are beyond words. What he does shows that it is possible for us to live in a better world, we just have to open our eyes. Its not unattainable like a peace filled Utopia, believing in Wikileaks means that you believe in the truth and when more people tell the truth, the better people behave.
Here’s to this birthday and to many more!
Even when his birthday is over for another year, if you support Julian then I would like you to comment below, your comment can be anonymous if you want it to, though if you provide a name it would be wonderful. Thank you.
