I don't want to do a telephone survey

A few Sundays ago before Manchester United were about to play, I was feeling particularly nervous and I was rushing about getting my superstitious stuff out of the way and then my phone rang. It was a with-held number and normally I don't tend to always answer these but this time I chose to. The very nice lady asked to speak to me and said she was calling in relation to my bank. On a Sunday??? I nearly hung up there and then but I carried on with the call.

Reviewed: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector

You have probably seen a lot of these BB cream reviews - and here's another. I was sent a handful of Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector samples and a discount voucher to tempt me into my further purchase. Crafty but the product itself does the talking. I'm quite a big tinted moisturiser fan through the summer months and I knew a BB cream would soon be a new favourite.

Stop googling and use your brain

I listen to Frank Skinner's Absolute Radio podcasts every week and the latest one he was talking about how he uses Google. For me I use google, wikipedia and IMDB on a daily occasion, some days it could be quite a few times. Now what Frank was saying in his podcast was that he uses Google only for things he really does not know and could never know and uses the example of "What's Paul McCartney's mother called?" He has no idea, so he looked it up. But if there was something he really should know he won't look it up, he will have to think about it. This seemed pretty normal to me and then I started thinking about my Google searches.
