Originally my blog was meant to be a laughter guide which would involve me posting anything funny for you all to have a good old giggle at. I then realised my blog has in fact been taken over by my experience as a journalist, perhaps reflecting how much I’ve learnt and how much I’ve grown up since getting a proper job and finishing my course. BUT do not fear as I’m still always on the look out for funny things, so I came across this which made me actually LOL (laugh out loud,) so have a look and a laugh!
This video also reminded me of my dog and how human like she can sometimes be. You have to love Labrador’s 🙂
I would firstly like to apologise for my lack of blogging this month, however I have had a valid excuse. I started back on the 9th of January and was revising solidly for an exam in ‘Public Admin.’ I also had other deadlines to be met and tried to avoid the internet as I get easily distracted. Fear not, I am back and will be making an effort to bring cheer to you all!
As a little treat for myself I’ve been going to the cinema with friends for a little escapism. With the Oscar nominations there was one film that picked up the most nods, one which I didn’t think would be my cup of tea but I was wrong! After much persuasion from my best friend I decided to go to see ‘The Artist’ last night. The thought of watching a silent movie did not appeal to me in the slightest but ten minutes in and I was hooked.
The main actor, Jean Dujardi and his hilarious little dog were central to the comedy of the film and his cheeky and charming mannerisms made him a likeable character from the start. Bérénice Bejo, the lead actress and her love towards Jean Dujardi was a beautiful love story and again was a great source of humour. The silence of the film didn’t seem to matter as the narrative was so easy to follow and the pathos worked really well.
I won’t go into too much detail but for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, it truly is an incredible film and worthy of all its nominations in the Oscars. It’s also one which will definitely put a smile on your face.
If you thought the major battle for the number one spot in the charts was going to be the Army wives versus X-factor winners Little Mix well think again. Having listened to Chris Moyles morning shows on Radio 1 I can’t stop singing ‘Dominick the Donkey,’ complete with ‘eee orrr, eee orrr.’ I now fully support Moyles’ efforts to get our new four legged friend to overtake his female rivals.
Dominick the donkey.

For some reason penguin’s always bring a smile to my face. I love watching how graceful they are in the water and then how they waddle about on the ice (not so gracefully). I just love penguins and so when I saw this video it made me ‘LOL,’ (laugh out loud) and I had to share it with you:
When I was in my teenage years I was a huge fan of the Wallace and Gromit animated short films, my favourite character being the evil penguin ‘Feathers McGraw.’ I love that he does not say a word or have any facial expressions yet he is so successfully portrayed as sly and deceitful. The subtle humour is brilliant, if you haven’t seen the films yet you can buy them for really cheap online , they are definitely worth a watch. Take a look at the evil penguin in action:
