There are so many things wrong with facebook I’m not even sure where to start but below is a list of the worst offences and offenders:

  • People who load a picture of their pet or child as their profile pic – I quite possibly haven’t seen you since high school so I probably won’t accept your friend request if I can’t figure out who you are.
  • Random invites especially from people who live in countries I’ve never heard of
  • Facebook book stalker friends who barely know you but like or comment on every status, picture, etc.
  • Provocative and inappropriate pictures – get career as a model, actress or porn star
  • Anyone who has over 5000 ‘friends’ – just get a fan page and get everyone to LIKE it because you cannot possibly have 5000 friends
  • Serial relationship status updaters – we get it, it’s complicated, so complicated in fact that more than half the time you are confused
  • Proclamations of love for your significant other – don’t worry you’ll see your ‘baby’ in a few hours and when you do please get it out of your system and GET A ROOM
  • The friend who posts and tags all photos including your drunkard weekends – not cool
  • People who make threats but don’t mention any names – if you have a problem with someone confront them – don’t be a coward and hide behind technology
  • The vague status update – does anyone actually know what you are talking about?
  • ūüė¶ the sad face that will eventually prompt someone to ask what’s wrong
  • Profound, deep and spiritual statuses – we get it you are at one with the universe and¬†have a direct link to a Higher Being or Deepak Chopra
  • Swear/Cuss words
  • Regular jetsetters who feel the need to rub into our faces that they are off yet again to see some exotic location
  • Non regular jetsetters who posts all and random pictures eg. This is a picture of our lunch. This is the picture of the toilet in our room.
  • Bizarre and cryptic posts done mostly by girls to confuse the guys – ladies men don’t give a tiny rats ass
  • Posts that encourages one to copy and paste if you care about cancer – seriously?!? I’ve lost family to cancer not posting does not mean I care any less.
  • Links to songs and youtube
  • Links to blogs (see I’m just as guilty but hey nobody is perfect)

I can’t think of any more but I’m sure there is plenty that I missed. Feel free to add to the list.

FC Barcelona VS AC Milan

I was elated when I discovered that we would be able to watch the Barcelona football team play a game at their home Stadium Camp Nou. As soon as we could we bought our tickets and were told to collect it at the stadium on the day of the match. I might not religiously watch soccer but I¬†played it for a while and it just so happens that FC Barcelona¬†is my favourite team. I thought this would more than make up for the fact that I didn’t see any World Cup games when it was hosted in my country.

The minute we entered the stadium the excitement that was building up inside me trebled. With a capacity of almost 100 000 fans one can only imagine how electrifying the atmosphere was. And we had really good seats. Just a pity we couldn’t get clearer photos and the fact that they drew the game 2-2.

Let me remind you what these Spanish guys look like……sigh.

Genius or Madman?

I think a little bit of both as you will see from the pictures below Gaudi was light years ahead of his time. Antoni Gaudi (1852 Р1926) was a Catalan architect and produced what was considered back then very modern buildings during his lifetime. We took the free Gaudi walking which met up at Placa Reial and the day before we visited Park Guell.

Park Guell

Casa Mila

Casa Batllo

Palau Guell

And his unfinished work Sagrada Familia Рhe knew he would not be able to complete this church in his lifetime so he left behind his designs and plaster moulds for future generations of architects. This building is surrounded by cranes today as they are still busy completing it and many joke that the church will never be finished and will remain a work in progress. The soldiers on the Passion facade of the church is where George Lucas whilst visiting Barcelona got costume inspiration for Darth Vader and his troopers.

Another stabby Monday

Did I mention I have rage issues?

So many things annoyed me today, and no it’s not PMS, I have a personality disorder. I think I might need professional help.

Ok so first thing to annoy me today was seeing this lady at the bus stop with 3 bags. She was waiting for the bus to get to work (she had a name tag and everything). I would however love to know what is in those 3 bags. From what I could ascertain:

Bag 1 is the formal handbag that will hold her purse, cell phone, keys, ID and other important documents. This is purely conjecture on my part.

Bag 2 is a shopper and I’m not entirely sure what gets put into this bag, maybe lunch? I think I saw a laptop in there, if so then the shopper is little bit (read very) inappropriate. I’ve noticed this scary fad where many ladies tote the Harrods green shoppers as if it’s an LV, that’s Louis Vuitton for all the fashion challenged people out there. I mean a Harrods bag?! Someone probably used it to throw their dirty underwear in it before travelling back home and instead of throwing the bag out they gave it to a poor unsuspecting family member or friend. I suppose one can’t scoff at 20 pounds which is what a large Harrods shopper costs. Also on a not so unrelated note, a¬†while back I noticed some ladies used large gift bags as that extra bag to cart around extra crap they don’t need. This leaves me speechless.

Bag 3 is just a normal plastic carrier bag and I really haven’t a fudgin clue as to what could possibly go into this one. Try as I might and believe me I did, I just cannot fathom what and why? I’m sure she won’t even need what’s in bag 3. Why does she need to cart 3 bags to work and back if she lives less than 5km away from work?

Moving¬†along swiftly, once I got to work and more importantly my desk I walked straight into Ye Olde Weekend Story. Unfortunately I am in the middle of these 2 colleagues’ desks¬†and was subjected to yet another inane and boring story. Why do some people think we want a blow-by-blow account of what they did over the weekend especially if all¬†they are going to do is brag? And then I still have to listen to the remix at lunchtime, well please excuse me when my eyes glaze over and whilst I nod along and pretend to be listening with complete rapture. I really am only trying to spare your feelings. Besides I still don’t think stabbing people in the face is socially acceptable behaviour. See, told you I have¬†rage issues.

I suppose I could go on and on ad nauseam but I vented and I’m feeling much better. Must pat myself on the back for not needing drugs.
