The Best Design Of Plastic Water Bottles

Simply take the usefulness of expensive aluminium containers and in turn make a very cool cap for a one litre bottle. Well done Grupo Damm, the guys behind Estrella lager!

Spanish Speakers Are Obsessed With Dogs!

In all my years of travelling and learning little bits of languages I have never come across a country who are so obsessed with dogs. Every sentence I hear is 'yadda yadda dogs... more yadda' or 'there is this, that, dogs... there is something else'. Truly bizarre, but, who am I to judge...?

How I Decorate The Table For A Chinese Takeaway

I know what you are thinking, but the only person I am trying to impress tonight is me! So no change there then... Still, it beats putting older roses straight in the bin!

I Like To Wax Lyrical But I'm Excessively Dyslexic!

Giving up control can be quite sexy, or so I've heard. So last I night I did in relation to waxing lyrical. Unfortunately with my excessive dyslexia I ended up being literally waxed! O.M.God! There is no greater pain than very hot wax pressing on your manly skin and then groups of hairs being ripped off violently. I'm thinking child-birth would be a breeze by comparison...

I'm Coping With VD Alone After A Weekend In Dublin

Phew!  Just back from a fabulous weekend in Dublin with my 'special friend'.  Here's a picture of who I spent a couple of nights with, pictured on the left (not sure who the one on the right is...).  So to all who are going to have alcohol-induced fun tonight, try and enjoy VD as much as one can!

Fire Safety Can Be Practical Too

Are you frustrated with a large fire resistant door that auto-closes and a sign reading 'Fire Door Keep Closed' that just doesn't look cool when opened and potentially puts your customers at risk? Then why not wedge it open with a matching fire extinguisher? Remember, fire kills but subverting fire saftey can look stylish...

The New And Original Bulmers Is Berry Good

The real Bulmers (known as Magners in the UK, read why here) has a great new flavour out in Ireland called Berry. It's made of raspberries and strawberries, plus apples of course. Strangely though the Irish haven't experienced the Golden Draft slightly sweeter less tart version we have.

Is Hanging (In A Modern Art Galley) Too Good For Me?

I guess that's the question ever self-obsessed egotist has to ask, is my art hanging in the National Gallery of Ireland too good for me? Probably not. So here is my first entry, currently hanging in the Moderns exhibit celebrating modern art. It's simply called 'Future'.

Where Is Gate 8 In Edinburgh Airport?

Short answer, it doesn't exist! For some bizarre unknown reason, Edinburgh Airport does not have a gate numbered 8. It has a 13 which is usually a superstitious number but as you can see from this picture, it goes Gate 7 then 9 (and the other side of the building is Security checkpoints. In all seriousness I emailed them asking why but no one has ever bothered to reply... Can anyone think of a good reason to omit Gate 8?

I Did Not Have Sexual Relations With That Badge...

I don't really like discussing the potential thorny issue of football online, it's too emotive.  Politics and religion are fine, but football is more important than them...  Anyway, Torres has calmly said he has only ever been an Atletico Madrid fan and that he's never kissed the Liverpool badge.  Fair enough, sound logic, if only the guys over the pond at Bleacher Report hadn't posted this video capture of you kissing the famous badge it would have been believable...

I'm Worried About My Hollandaise Sauce...

I'm making a Hollandaise sauce and I'm completely racked with worry!  I think I've got separation anxiety...
