Deception

Life is hard sometimes. The other day I was daydreaming, finding a way to escape reality for a while, when I spotted a tiny spider working on a web. It was carefully creating this perfect and fragile little spider web, putting so much love and dedication into a home for one. I was so captivated by its beauty and patience. In that moment it was just me and that little spider in the world. The spider devising a place to call home, and me the onlooker to this beautiful creation.

Just as I was considering this and taking it all in…a figure behind me took notice of us sharing this moment and with one swift movement ripped the spider’s little web in half. I was devastated. How heartless. The lesson to learn here is that there’s monsters everywhere…even disguised as friends.

Credit to Georgina for being the figure that broke a happy home.

The Intern…

I first put this film on as a bit of a whim, as it had just been added to NowTV and I love a bit of Anne hathaway…and a bit of comedy, so I thought why not.

When it started I just thought it would really be a bit of background noise while I was doing other things, as it didn’t really capture me as much as I’d of liked. But once it got into it, I became more and more involved in the storyline.

It basically centres around a guy that’s retired, (without giving too much away) that finds life a bit boring. So he basically gets a job as a senior intern for a fashion company, not really sure as to what he’s doing but with tons of enthusiasm to learn pretty much anything and everything. Although the boss wasn’t entirely on board with this idea, he eventually works his way into the hearts of his colleagues and most importantly his boss…while tackling a few issues along the way (obviously).

Overall I really enjoyed the film. I found it had a refreshing storyline, mainly due to the usual roles being reversed. It really made a good watch, because let’s be honest the repeated storylines get a bit boring after a while. I don’t think I could fault this film really. The main casts were a great choice, and the roles were portrayed just the way they were intended.

I’d definitely recommend anyone to watch this if they like comedy films. Plus I mean who doesn’t like a bit of Robert De Niro…I actually think I have a new-found love for him now after watching this film…I might even look into other films he’s been in that I haven’t watched yet! We shall see…

The Time I Made A Joke…

You know how sometimes when your daydreaming, you slip into a deep place right in the back of your mind. For example the time I was looking at the ants on the floor and It spiralled into a thought that maybe we are just like ants. And as I’m looking down on them now, there’s people/things looking down on us…a bit like a mirror in a mirror, creating a continuous image getting smaller and smaller. So basically I was thinking about a higher intelligence (like aliens) which I know is possible but it’s also completely random for a Tuesday afternoon…I guess that’s what work does to us.

Anyway, so this was one of those times…only this time I was thinking about balls. Guys balls to be exact or testicles if you will. So getting to the point. I was thinking to myself, if guys have two balls…why aren’t they in individual bags? To which my brain then replied…’maybe they didn’t offer them two at the checkout’.

Yeaaahhhh I know, It’s bad. Shockingly bad. But I love them kind of jokes, dad jokes I call them. The wit I got from my dad of course didn’t help my cause. But you know I’ve come out a great person with a quick wit…even if like I say it is bad. So yeah that’s the joke I made. Copyright Natalie Oram. ✌🏼️

If you would like to share my joke to any of your male friends or family I have set up a scenario and wording for the joke below.

Scenario: Lazing around on anyway of the week with said male friend/family.

Hey Ted…If guys have two balls…why is there only one bag?..Did they not offer you two at the checkout? Ba dum bum chush.

Happy Tuesday! 🙈

Single on Valentine’s 

Ok so Valentine’s Day is upon us, and although this is a day/evening for couple’s to celebrate romances old and new…this post is mainly for all the single people out there.

Now even though we’re single, there are still ways we can celebrate Valentine’s Day alone..and the chances are that when it gets to the end of the night, we are probably feeling a hell of a lot more satisfied and relaxed than a lot of couple’s will out there. So to make it simple this is my guide to kick ass on Valentine’s Day! Just as a disclaimer I am no expert at being single, but I do know how to have a great night in…so let’s get started with my way to be single on Valentine’s day.

Ok first things first FOOD. I love food and the perks of being single is that you can eat whatever the heck you want, without having to consider anyone else likes or dislikes. Pizza, Nandos, Chinese, Curry…the possibilities are endless. Hey even if you can choose, you could just have a bit of everything. All to yourself. Another great reason for being single is that you don’t have to share with anyone! I could have Ice cream with pancakes for dessert and I could eat it all with no distractions. PERFECT!

The next thing on my agenda after I get food sorted is down time. You want to be relaxed and comfy obviously. So take a bath, light some candles, get a glass of wine (or whatever you like to drink) and just relax. No need to think or worry about what you need to do, or keeping anyone else happy. Just focus on you. Then after you’ve turned into a wrinkly prune get out of the bath and into the fluffiest, most unsexy pyjama’s you have and snuggle up on the sofa.

Onto number three, now by this point in a relationship you’d either be arguing or getting ‘down to business’, sooo let’s grab our hot buff celebrity crush and throw on a romcom. Filled with highs and lows including arguments, conflict, comedy, upset, nudity, and of course sex. What more could you want from entertainment on a night in alone? Basic but brilliant. On a different note if your not into films, why not read a book or even hop onto the Xbox and play a bit of Fallout 4 for that survivor/defender inside of you.

Ok so the night is coming to a end now…but maybe your feeling a bit unfulfilled still? wondering what to do with yourself before bed? How about….some internet shopping! Maybe you saw a top or a dress you wanted last time you went shopping, or even just fancy a little pick me up. The internet is there! With deals, and offers and overall pretty things to buy. So why not? Then after you can relax into a nice warm bed (with your electric blanket) and drift of into a peaceful sleep.

And there you have it! The day is over and you can go back to your everyday life, with the blissful memory of having a nice relaxing valentines with your one true love (you)! Anyway that’s just my perfect day. Feel free to leave me any comments or feedback about have you’d spend your Valentine’s day evening and I hope you kick ass.

 

5 Little Things…

There’s a lot of things that make me laugh…sometimes I even laugh over nothing. But it takes something special to make me laugh out loud.

The first thing I can think of is: Memories. Now I have to admit majority of these are embarrassing memories. Like the number of times I’ve physically walked into a wall time or the time I threw up purple puke at the Blue Lagoon…and on that note I shall move on…

The next thing is Animals. And for this one I just thank the lord for YouTube! I’ve mentioned this before, but I can sit for hours watching Animals videos. They just do the most stupid and funniest things. From the No no no cat to the talking dog video. I may even go as far to say this is a past time of mine that I pass down to my children.

Onto Number Three. Friends. Being a weird person, I tend to make friends with weird people. And that in itself can brighten up anyones day! From strange accents, to weird dances with a mop. Whenever I have a rough day I know they are there to get me close to peeing my pants with laughter.

Fourth on the List is Accidents. This one can be quite childish at times. It involves a lot of those moments where you know you shouldn’t laugh…but you do. The most common causes are: people slipping off the curb, hitting themselves in the face, or just walking into things. It’s ridiculous because if I did it I wouldn’t want people laughing…but It’s a natural response I guess.

The final thing that makes me laugh uncontrollably is Comedians. Now this mights be an obvious answer…but what is a comedian without the ability to make you laugh unexpectedly. My two favourite Comedians are Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre. I don’t know why but I seem to prefer male comedians…a lot of woman comedians just don’t seem to hit the spot. That might change the more I watch them though…so we will see.

It’s a strange thing laughter, sometimes you can’t control it, sometimes it’s polite and then other time’s it’s forced…You can never quite tell…

Top 10 Films…

The five ways to win my heart…

Option number 1: Cat videos. I love cat videos. Whether they’re funny, cute, or even a bit weird, I love them all. There’s a high chance I’ve seen all of them, but if I’m ever down this is a sure way to pick me back up instantly.

Option number 2: Food. I’ll pretty much eat anything, but the definite wooing foods are chocolate, chicken, ice cream (mint choc chip), corn on the cob, bacon, pancakes, watermelon,pea and ham soup, buttered bread, maybe even the odd mini kiev.

Option number 3: Sleep. I like sleep….lots. So there’s a few ways to go about this, you can either let me have a nice long lie in, or let me fall asleep in a warm place. For extra brownie points you could even make a little den filled with a hot water bottle and snacks for a midnight feast.

Option number 4: Films. I’m always open to seeing new films…or old films depending on the production date. So if you have a good film choice and it makes its way into my top 50, your onto a winner!

Option number 5: Travel. This one’s more of an expensive option. But let’s be honest if I had an opportunity to go travelling right now, I’d take it in a heartbeat. Wherever, whenever! So let’s travel!
