Antidotal Friday Fun

How was yesterday for you? Dare we talk about it? If it’s all a little bit too raw, perhaps your pain will be eased by some Friday amusement? (If not, ignore the next few items. Not everything in today’s post is love related…)

First up, we have a super cute video of pre-schoolers talking about love. Remember the other day when I was singing the praises of C. Jane? She shared this as her son’s in it. [Talking of Courtney, I had a tweet from her that made me dance a little jig. Small things!]

Secondly, an interesting YouTube project that will help you find your perfect other half – well, as long as they have a YouTube account and took part in this exercise. Turn on annotations and answer their questions. I did this while hanging out at the RFH yesterday and I chuckled to myself heartily. A fun diversion…

Next up, two things for my fellow OCD sufferers. You may mock us, but certain things make us very, very happy. Firstly, a Tumblr devoted to pictures showing things fitting perfectly into things. Does that makes sense? Would a picture (or maybe two) help?

The second OCD thing is a beautiful collection of things organised by colour, compiled by Buzzfeed. My friend Becki is very OCD about such things, particularly arranging coloured sweets according to their colour before eating any of them and I thank her for sending this my way. I love looking at beautiful colour arrangements – even books – but while my eyes are saying “ooohhhh pretty!”, my mind is screaming “but HOW DO YOU FIND THE BOOKS???” Anyway, here’s a couple of examples:

Finally, a little bit of partisan, sporting, singing flash-mobbing. I know it’s not a 6 Nations weekend this week, but I’m liable to forget this next week with all that’s currently going on. Apologies if you don’t support England, but (i) it’s the Swingle Singers, (ii) Swing Low Sweet Chariot is a great song and (iii) it’s the Swingle Singers…


  1. You’re welcome… although I maintain that my OCD tendencies are not as bad as yours! (Also, I found the things-into-other-things tumblr too. It’s perfect.)
