It's like Jell-O on springs

Just spent the afternooon watching Some Like It Hot and just like the other times I've seen it, it's just really good. The jokes are funny, the costumes are excellent and Marilyn Monroe is (or was) just so pretty as Sugar Kane.

But obviously, this intro just serves the purpose of letting me say: "Speaking of sugar canes...." because I just used the very same for the decoration of my Advent wreath. Usually, when I try my hand at other crafts than knitting, it never really turns out the way I imagined it. However, not to blow my own horn or anything, I think this turned out pretty nice. Colour-theme and all - I feel so Martha! Sorry about the scrummy picture, my mobile isn't really much of a camera - I also like to think that in real life, the sugar canes look less Photoshopped.

You've got nothing to do so you just stay in bed (oh poor thing)

I still haven't got all the yarn for my cardigan, so I'm keeping myself busy with this instead - oooh, the joys of having a job where I do nothing all day! And speaking of lace, I'm usually not a fan of knitted dresses and skirts (too hippie), but I kinda like this (via Ysolda). What do you think? Is it terrible? Am I just fooled by the pretty (and skinny) model and the drinks?

By the way, if you've read my 100 (which I really need to update as it still says that I am a vegetarian and well... The stuff about moustaches looking equally good on men and women is still very valid, though), you'll know that my favourite animals are sheep, ducks and penguins. I might have to add another to the list - the alpaca! Crossover between sheep and llamas, how can you not love them? I want one for Christmas, I'm sure it'll fit nicely into the flat.

If I ever have kids, I'm totally dressing them up as Yoda as well. Not just for Halloween, that hat is the epitome of everyday cool. Alas, it's crocheted and I am a rather reluctant hooker - it's no fun when you can't watch TV at the same time, you know.

Dark and difficult times lie ahead

You know, Daniel Radcliffe, I really like the Harry Potter-books. And movies. Loads. And I think you rock. You obviously have excellent taste in music; you nearly had Franz Ferdinand in the latest movie (it turned out to be Jarvis Cocker and Jonny Greenwood instead, not a bad substitute if you ask me), you like The Libertines and you are a pretty nifty 16-year-old (again, like Peter Hayes, it's the hair) - if I were 16 years old again, I'm sure I'd have a major, huge crush on you. But seriously, hon, don't pluck your eyebrows! It wasn't a good look for Boy George, it wasn't a good look for that fella from The Calling, it's really not a good look for any guy. Fair dues, you might have unibrow tendencies, I shan't say, and obviously you're supposed to have two eyebrows, not one, so the middle bit is okay, I guess. But really, don't pluck anywhere else. Don't let anybody do it either. Just put the tweezers down. Please.

Oh honey no!

A couple of Danish bloggers has been posting their top fives of hot guys 'n' girls over the last couple of days. I thought about doing the same thing, partly because I was bored, partly because I have too much time on my hands and partly because one list included Colin Farrell and another Elijah Wood, so I wanted to set the record straight, 'cause that is poor f***ing taste if I ever saw it.
Anyway! I'd been considered several candidates, you know, Brett Anderson (Brett gets two links for being sex on a stick), Johnny Depp (that picture because collarbones + cigarette = dirty. Also, because, you know, he's 40, he was bald in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, he's had a beard, for f***'s sake and I still would), the smackhead from Marion (that picture because... come on, it says 'shag'), mid-nineties Alex James, start-nineties Nicky Wire (I wanted the picture with the popsicle for this one, but when I couldn't find it, I just thought "F*** it.") - you know, your basic skinny, somehow-looking-a-bit-like-an-ugly-girl-makes-a-shithot-guy indie-girl favourites - the staple goods!
There were lots of candidates, of course, and another was Peter Hayes from B.R.M.C., because even though I met him once and he is around 1,60, he is still one dirty f***er. Or, at least I thought so until I saw this picture and nearly f***ing cried. It's almost as bad as the time Brett dyed his hair blond. The guy had such nice hair, so what possessed him to do such a thing? What is he lacking? Eyes? Friends? Mirrors? Surely not taste? What? I just don't get it. So sad...

You used to make me smile when I was down

Normally, I don't post these test-thingies, but chances are that a few of you will want to know which indie-album you are. Can't really say which part of me is this Belle and Sebastian-album, it's probably not the "She was into S&M and bible studies"-line... Most likely it's the tag that Jack Black gives it in High Fidelity - sad bastard music!

Belle and Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister
You are Belle & Sebastians If Youre Feeling

What essential indie rock album are you?

And if that Pulp Fiction-remake ever comes along, I reckon The Gimp should wear this.
