Maybe it's just me..

Waking up this morning, I rolled over with a slight groan to see that once again, we had beautiful blue skies and wonderful weather.

Why would I groan? Surely nice weather is a good thing?

To most people, I suppose there are advantages to this surprising weather.

Beer Gardens -  instead of sitting inside a pub, people are about to sit OUTSIDE in the beer garden! Yes, the ability to sit outside really does excite us English. Sitting outside allows you to walk further to the bar and toilets and end up squashed right next to the other jobless folk who too want to experience this, 'outside'. You also make a little friend in bees and wasps that want to share that fruit juice you just bought.

Sweat - Glistening, glowing, perspiring, however you want to mask it, sweating is something we all do. Bermuda temperatures mean we do it by the bucket loads (quite literally). How is sweat an advantage? Well, sweating supposedly helps remove toxins from the body and promote weight loss. This is why people use saunas. Deodorant companies are raking it in. 

Sunburn - people parade this bane of life as though it is a good thing? 

Pleb 1 - Oh you look like you have caught the sun..
Pleb 2 - *laughs* yeah, I was sat outside for about 5 hours. I think I will peel tomorrow. Hopefully I will go brown.

WHY ON EARTH do you think the peeling of skin is not something to be concerned about? People seem to think they are snakes and will simply peel off the nasty pale skin and be mahogany underneath.. Sorry, a few more hours per day on the sunbed will be required before that happens.

Hayfever - sneezing and watery eyes look great together and if you team them with a kleenex, you are bang on trend this season. Hawt.

Blackpool beach - the only time of the year that anyone will dare to go to that beach is on days like this. Swimming in sewer water doesn't matter if the sun is beaming down. The sun will cancel out the many diseases you are bound to get. Blackpool businesses will manage to sell FIVE more pieces of rock than normal. This is called, 'raking it in'.

Maybe it's just me, maybe I am just being miserable...... *shrugs*

I've always wanted to....

.....shave an alpaca.

I just want to know, do they still look like an alpaca underneath? Maybe they look like a horse or a deer. Its a mystery.

What isn't a mystery anymore is the origin of my blog. Yes, an "About" page has arisen from the depths of Doodledom to add yet another fugly widget to my blog. I don't like having the tabs separate the header from the rest of the blog so for now, they are stuck on the side with everything else. I'm sure I will change things around again, I seem to bore very easily.

April 2012 A to Z Challenge Recap

So, this is a little while after the A to Z Challenge but if you had followed me during this time, you'll know that university has got in the way.

Oh and by the way, I have, as of today, officially finished university! I had my last ever exam *hopefully* and now I'm done with it. It is definitely a nice feeling to get it all out of the way and concentrate on job applications.

So yes, back to the topic.. I have to say that I didn't enjoy doing the challenge as much as I thought I would. I mean, if the timing would have been different and I could have put more effort into it, then yeah, it would have been awesome *maybe next year!!*.  So apart from university, this has been my April. I have linked all the pictures to their respective posts so feel free to check them out!

Being so busy meant that some posts were missed or squashed together. For example:

Really Stupid Tattoos
Priorities and PIe

There have been some random moments. Although, what more do you really expect from me:

Antibiotics Against Alcoholism
Envelope Fetish
Who lives in an Igloo like this?

Burned Toast

Like every person with two X chromosomes, I love animals and so they just had to feature somewhere:

Friends with Flamingos


Oh and finally a celebrity or two popped up:

Kate Middleton
Hulk Hogan                                                    

So all in all it has been a random, colourful journey which will hopefully be bigger and better next year. Hope you all enjoyed (and continue to enjoy) my posts and I'm loving all the new Doodle fans. Thanks for reading everyone!
