3 types of sales-assistants I want to throttle


Yes, I know that it has been said before, but I will say it again and again. Maybe if we all whine long and loud enough it will finally sink in.  So this goes out to all those who work in any sort of shop: politeness is not optional when facing that strange animal we […]


Anti-Valentine’s: the movies to break the mood

500 days of summer

Did you get dumped right before the big day? Or maybe you’re just not too fond of the forced red roses and chocolates combo? Whatever your reasons, here’s a list of awesome movies to help you have a blast while sticking it to that borin’ old Cupid. Kill Bill 2 Why am I opting for […]


Facebook parenting, parenting fail

This video, which is going viral pretty fast, at first conjured conflicting reactions in me. I wasn’t sure whether I was looking at someone who deserves the Parent of the Year award for single-handedly going against the tide of brat-hood or ….at the world’s biggest jerk. Then –  after I got over my rather immature […]


Valentines? Happy Hallmark Day

walking dead

Do I like spontaneously romantic gestures? Hell yes. Can anything that happens on an industry-fabricated holiday known for spewing sad clichés on the back of a plastic menu ever be spontaneously romantic? I believe you will find your answer within the question. Unexpected champagne by the moonlight = good. Dinner in a restaurant full of […]


Wanna learn Japanese? Try some boobs!

miss minxy

It’s Monday morning and I really am not in the mood for serious topics like the elections or the shocking hate crime that was revealed yesterday. Luckily, the interwebz is full of happy distractions. Such as this incredibly clever lady with her weekly lessons in Japanese. I know that many of you are heavily into Japanese culture. Miss […]


Election watch: 4 phenomena that magically manifest now we’re in electo-mode

 1. The infamous Innijiet. Things kicked off to a glorious hamallata last Sunday, when what seemed like the entire corps of what would be our trailer trash community showed up with enthusiasm to greet (a highly uncomfortable) PM during his “impromptu” Balzan meeting. Gonzi huwa il-mexxej, Alleljuljah – although the most telling video has mysteriously […]


WTF moment (only for those who understand Italian)

This one really needs no comments. Any takers? Word of warning…not for those who are weak of stomach (with thanks to the, erm, kind person who forwarded this link)


Those farkin Japanese show us how it’s done

Japanese organise a fuckin massive sale

Because there’s more to life than watching Franco on TV… obviously the F word in the title is meant to be read in the spirit of the picture below, rather than taken as a pejorative term. If you want to read all about it, here is the source.


Election watch: Why Gonzi got the new ministerial appointments wrong

With a surprise cabinet re-shuffle announced hours ago just in time for the weekend, the country is – as usual – in turmoil. Said turmoil could have easily been avoided with wiser choices as to who should have been awarded which ministry. Here’s what was obvious to the whole electorate but seems to have eluded […]


That day I was branded a porn-monger

a coffee shop

So there I was, caught viewing a website full of “questionable content” in public,  with two tut-tutting ladies emanating loud and clear disapproval right behind me. Just another day on Planet Gaffes. But maybe I should start from the beginning. My idea of ways to keep myself entertained can be weird. Occasionally, I can be […]
