Nom or Vom

Ok, it's Friday, which means the return of Nom or Vom, and this week, like the weather, we have a hot one. 

Without further ado, I bring you. 

Theo James. 

Pretty simple this one, 

Theo James,

Nom or Vom?

Let me know.

Going Blank

Ever have those times when the blogging part of your brain goes, "Fuck this, I'm off to lay on the beach. You're on your own, bitch" (My blogging brain is RUDE, rude, I tell you)

After nearly FIVE years of blogging, every day I worry that I will run out of things to blog about. I could always fall back on telling other people How To Blog Successfully, that seems to be a popular theme at the moment. people doling out advice like cake at a party, (mmmmmmmm, cake) but the honest truth is there is no ideal formula on how to be a blogger, successful or otherwise.

Want to blog?

Write shit down.

BANG, you are a blogger, let us all move on.

Currently, I have run out of things to say, (I KNOW!!!!!) I know it never lasts, I too have read the articles on running a successful blog that say, if you haven't got anything to say, just take a step back for a day or two, but I DON'T WANT TO. I want to write shit down.

Part of the problem is that my children are away for a week and I am out of my blogging routine, therefore giving my blogging brain the chance to slip away unnoticed to sip mojitos on the beach and eye up the lifeguards. (My blogging brain is also a bit of a perv)

I want to blog, I feel like I need to blog, but ain't no-one going to suffer if I don't, so I may just go and join my blogging brain on the beach,

I hear the lifeguard is a fittie.

What do you do when your blogging brain runs away? Do you join it? Push on through?

Odontophobia  - Fear of Dentists

I have broken a tooth.

(Think of all the swearing you have ever heard, make up a couple of new swear words and insert them here)

The problem is, I am scared of the dentist. I mean REALLLLLLLY scared.


You say dentist and I either see this guy, or Steve Martin in Little Shop Of Horrors, either way. I DO NOT LIKE THE DENTIST.

Yes, I know I HAVE TO GO, (Anyone else wish that teeth were like fingernails and just grew back?) partly because, OH MY GOD MY MOUTH HURTS. Yes, I know that once I go, (eventually) I will feel better, but I DO NOT LIKE THE DENTIST.

I actually bit a dentist once, he has his fingers in my mouth and I was going to throw up, he wouldn't stop, so I bit him. Not big, not brave and not clever, I know. But I was scared and I wanted him to stop rummaging in my mouth like an old lady with a huge handbag searching for a loose mint.

I don't know anyone who actually goes, "Whooo Hooooo, it is time to visit the dentist" but I don't know if I am alone in being a total scaredy cat who is wondering how long I can actually leave this broken tooth before it gives me grief. Well yes, I KNOW it hurts now, but that will go,

WON'T IT??????

Help me out here, am I alone in being frightened of the dentist? Do I need to woman up and make the appt? Who wants to hold my hand?

Let me know

A Bite Of The Apple

So, I purchased an Apple Watch.

Why? I hear some of you ask. Well because I wanted it, because I can more than afford it, and because I love all things Apple.

You didn't buy an Apple Watch? Because you didn't want one or currently couldn't afford one?

Good for you. I hope you enjoy not owning one.

SEEEEEEEEEEEEEE how simple that is? You would be gobsmacked, (Or possibly not) by the amount of sarcastic comments, rude comments and indirect bitching that I have experienced because I made a purchase and I don't feel an ounce of shame about it.

I have no need to justify my purchases to anyone, no-one does. You want the shoes? Buy the fucking shoes. You want the Go Pro? You can afford the Go Pro? Buy it. We don't answer to anyone other than ourselves and our bank account. I certainly don't answer to anyone regarding a watch that I want.

In times like this, I bring out Neil Patrick Harris,

(Pushes my mobile phone bill to the front of the pile)

For those that are interested, I purchased a Pink Apple Sport Watch. Yes, I will be blogging about it when I get it, I am excited about it, (and looking for a nail varnish that will match the colour)

For those that aren't interested, that's fine too. For those that are morally outraged that I have made a purchase with which you disagree............

Which bill was it you decided to pay?

Let me know.

Cracking Choccy

I have a question,

What the HELL do they put in Easter Egg chocolate to make it taste so nice? I LOVE chocolate, I really do, But Easter Egg Chocolate is like CRACK to me. It tastes 100% nicer than normal chocolate and I cannot leave it alone until it is gone.

I tell you what tastes nicer than my Easter Eggs?


They scream, I swear they scream from the cupboard once the kids have gone to bed. It starts off as a seductive whisper,

"Just snap off a little bit, they won't even notice"

and they steadily get louder and louder until at about 11pm at night they are yelling,


Who am I to argue with an Easter Egg?

Am I wrong?

Easter Egg chocolate tastes better, doesn't it?

Let me know

Trollin' Trollin' Trollin'

I remember when I first heard the saying "Don't Feed The Trolls" thinking, "Hmmmmmmm, Troll. that is such a good word for people who sit on the internet and just spout shit all day, hurting peoples feelings and generally causing misery to others. Troll, I like it"

But now, things have changed. Does anyone else think that the word troll is bandied around so often now that it has kind of lost its true meaning?

If someone disagrees with another person online, these days, more and more people will scream that they are being trolled. Take Sarah Vine, (Someone, please take her) she writes an inflammatory article about a kitchen, and then writes another article about trolls, hmmmmmmmmm. It is almost a Buy One Get One Free for columnists these days, isn't it?

1/    Write one article and be as obnoxious and inflammatory as possible,

Oh look, now I have enough material for a second article about how people trolled me for my opinions.  See anyone who has written something obnoxious and chances are you will see a follow up article a week or two later "bravely" talking about how they were trolled and abused.

Don't get me wrong, death threats, abuse, threats of violence. ALL WRONG.

But there definitely seems to be a change in what people call TROLLING.

Someone disagreeing with your opinion, doesn't make them a troll, they are just someone with a different opinion from you and different opinions are COOL.

Let us not cheapen the word troll, trolls are truly horrible, sad individuals with no lives and the desperate need to hurt others, they feed off of people's misery and are nasty individuals.

A troll is not someone who thinks that Zayn Fucking Malik would be better off as a solo artist.

What do you think? Is the word "Troll" bandied around too much lately? Do some people actually invite differing opinions just so they can cry troll?

Let me know
