You know when people go, ‘Oh I’m so RANDOM’ and ‘Isn’t it random?’ etc and you just want to punch them in the face? This is not one of those times. We never, ever punch KateTakes5 in the face. We heart her, and do her Listography bidding. This week, the theme is Top 5 random things I like, and we were WARNED by Kate to not just write ‘I like chocolate’. Or she would punch us in the face.
So with that threat of violence ringing in my ears, here is my Top 5:
The stringy white stringy stuff on satsumas/clementines etc
Before you cry ‘DEMON’ and retch into your sleeves, may I remind you that the stringy white stringy stuff (its actual name) is all part of the orange and really quite tasty? Yes, yes, I know I am the only person you’ll ever meet that will admit to liking the stringy white stringy stuff on satsumas/clementines etc, but it’s not that bad. People who peel it all off are the weirdos. Not me.
The Go Compare ads on TV
They do different ones! With different scenarios! It’s like they tell a little story each time! I liked the space one with aliens, and the 17th century style one with the lady singer. Not too keen on the caveman one, the singing mammoth is just a bit too far-fetched, if you ask me.
The smell of creosote
It reminds me of playing in my nan’s garden when I was little. Hot summer days, warm wooden fences, larking about in the tall grass and throwing apples at my cousins. Good times.
Air raid sirens
Yeah, we don’t hear them every day, do we? But there’s something about that noise that gets my adrenalin pumping. It’s thrilling and fecking terrifying at the same time. And I do a great impression of one when drunk.
I’ve never even been, but I love this place, mostly due to the film In Bruges (starring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes) which contains lots of swearing and violence and is VERY FUNNY and also made me cry a bit. And proved to me that Colin Farrell can actually act. And makes Belgium look awesome. In a really mundane, bland kind of way…
That’s yer lot! Move along now! Go see the other reprobates that joined in on Kate’s lovely blog!
