Pineberries

I’m not easily surprised when it comes to food, but these not only caught my eye, but also had me wondering if I had missed something all my life. Before you try to check your memory to see if you’ve ever seen these let me help you out. The odds are that no, you haven’t.

These strawberry-like berries were “re-launched” by Waitrose last April after near extension

According to the Guardian‘s review from last year they’re not all that great, but I still think they’re cute.

I’m curious and would love to try them, even if they’re supposed to taste like watered down pineapples. I’d love to know if I could get my hand on these in the US.

Found them here.

UP

I adored the movie Up. It was cute, quirky and sweet, but most of all I thought it was adorably idealistic and romantic. A house could never fly so high. Boy was I wrong.

The National Geographic team for the new show “How Hard Can It Be” decided to try it out, after all, Carl made it seem pretty easy in the movie.

Check out this video for a how/why/when/where they did it, and to see a house fly. Pretty impressive, and I’m not always easily amused.

911

She called the police because he didn’t propose.

See highlights from the news piece below.

Ana Perez, 40, called 911 around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, claiming her boyfriend was attacking her.

When police arrived, she changed her story, admitting she was trying to scare her boyfriend into marrying her.

Police in the Grand Central District were not amused, and charged Perez with disorderly conduct.

“She called 911 to scare him and have the police force him to marry her,’’ according to Grand Central District police Capt. Grand Central District Capt. Ronald Pontecore’

The boyfriend, according to police, had no intention of marrying Perez and was in the process of breaking up with her

Why would he EVER break up with her?

I couldn’t make this up if I tried.

Hiring guide or model casting?

This week, American Apparel’s hiring guidelines have been released. And if you’re looking for a job in retail look another way since these are very very very specific guidelines.

Silly guidelines for girls:

a) Makeup is to be kept to a minimal- please take this very seriously. Liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner and eyeshadow are advised against; mascara must look very natural (ie. should not be clumpy or a color that does not compliment your skin and haircolor). Blush must not be overdone- should not have glitter or sparkles. Liquid foundation is prohibited (undereye concealer is understandable if it looks natural- ie. not clumpy or caked on, must match your skin tone). Please do not use a shiny gloss on your lips; any lipcolor must be subtle.
b) Eyebrows must not be overplucked. Full eyebrows are very much encouraged. Please do not dye your eyebrows a different color.
c) We encourage long, healthy, natural hair, so please be advised of the following:
-Hair must be kept your natural color.
-Blow-drying hair excessively could cause heat damage, so this is advised against.
-“Bangs” or “fringe” are advised against. It is not part of the direction we’re moving in.

And guidelines for the poor guys:

a) Hair should look natural. Excessive product to the extent of creating stiffness and an unnatural or greasy appearance to your hair is advised against.
b) Eyebrows should be natural. Please do not dye your eyebrows a different color or overpluck them.
c) Males should not wear makeup.
d) Facial hair needs to be kept clean and well groomed. Any mustache or goatee of a contemporary style are advised against.
e) No gauges allowed whatsoever.

At least I’m on the same page as them regarding men plucking their eyebrows.

Am I the only one that thinks this is extra nutty?

Apparently, American Apparel thinks this is nutty too.

Hug-E-Gram

Valentine’s day  is right around the corner. Even though I’m not expecting roses or chocolate, I certainly wouldn’t be able to appreciate it if someone sent me this. Not even the best intentions can disguise that the Hug E Gram must be one of the silliest things sold on the internet. This is its description:

A Hug-E-Gram lets you give your hug to someone when you can’t be there! It is the hug that lasts. You will understand how very special the moment can be as the love and sentiment from you comes through. The Hug-E-Gram is available in 3 different colors (Black, Red or Salmon). After you order, you may record a personalized message that will arrive with your Hug-E-Gram.

Imagine getting this in the mail for valentines. Would you actually put it on? Or would you leave it in a corner for the dog to chew on?


I wonder what the card would say. Maybe Hunny here’s a hug for my favorite part of you. Your love handles.

What would you write in the card if you were to send a Hug-E-Gram? Share it in the comments.
