When conversing with a woman, it's important to assert your masculinity through mind games. While she's talking, very subtly bring out a sourdough roll and place it on the table. This will let her know, through subliminal means, that you have what it takes to be a breadwinner, thus making her more likely to invest in you.
Volunteers are the backbone of sport in the UK, without them sport just wouldn't be possible.... Volunteering helps boost communities, people who volunteer in sport feel closer to their communities, they feel they can trust their communities and that they have an impact on what that community is like. I've seen it first hand, people from different backgrounds, ages and areas coming together for a cause they feel strongly about.
You singularly warp the weakened minds of infants into some vision of unquestioned worship, with the obtaining of mince pies and sherry as your one, despicable goal. How do you sleep at night?
Excited about The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies? Want the inside scoop on the 11 scenes that are so mind-blowing that you will have to watch them again and again and then probably once more to fully understand and appreciate them? Ask and thou shall receive...
And a pantomime it is, well not so entertaining, no flouncing dames or doleful Buttons or rousing songs, just semi-staged tittle-tattle and bickering. The only worthwhile sentiments, be they raging or insightful come from the audience, across the camera bank. The man who brings up politicians pay rises, the man who demands I stand for parliament (so that he could not vote for me judging from his antipathy), the mad, lovely blue hair woman who swears at everyone, mostly though the woman who says "Why are we talking about immigrants? It's a side issue, this crisis was caused by financial negligence and the subsequent bail-out".
Christmas is coming, like the relentless wave of immigrants that UKIP keep threatening us about, and News Punch is back with a festive special! So drink and be merry, the way Nigel Farage does every single working day.
While the Horrible Histories series for children has been recognised as fitting within the Roald Dahl tradition of humour, it seems that the adult version, which Double History offers, is simply too opaque for some. Yet what exactly is being satirised here?
I honestly think the majority of Australians are actually a laid back tolerant bunch, which is perhaps why no one notices. Because said nonchalance goes hand in hand with not being particularly vocal. Here we've been afforded the opportunity to show what this country's really about and, at this stage, are taking hold of said opportunity with both hands.
Ding Dong Merrily On- bollocks I've got Gordon for secret Santa?? Really? Gordon?! Gordon smells of damp tea towels and has a weird nasal hair flutter when he exhales. I'm sure he was talking about his athlete's foot to the maintenance manager in the car park yesterday. A tube of Canesten it is then.
Poverty in Myanmar affects ordinary Burmese families and children, with one in four of the population living in extreme poverty, but ActionAid's child sponsorship programme is really helping and making real transformations... That is why I am is backing ActionAid's Christmas appeal to find sponsors for 2,700 children across six countries in the developing world - Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ghana, Malawi, Myanmar and The Gambia - who are affected by extreme poverty or conflict to help give them a future.
It's going to cost more than milk. Maybe twice as much, but is also supposed to have heaps of additional health benefits. There are also significant health benefits with not drinking milk and doing exercise, but Coca Cola isn't selling that.
Overshadowed by the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War this year has been another hundred year anniversary, that of the launch of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic expedition. It was of course a heroic failure, one which ended the heroic age of polar exploration...
There is a sweet taste of melancholy in the air after our final show, although performance has been my auxiliary goal to observing Daniel's behaviour, it has had an addictive quality that leaves me yearning for longevity in this project so I could indulge in more of its more-ish byproduct.
If you really liked this person that you've got on the backburner, why aren't you having a crack at it? If you don't have a solid answer to that question, then you're not being fair to the person that's on the backburner, or to yourself.
The trouble is that we all tend to think we're a little more well-liked than we are. Therefore, the receiving of a Hallmark offering is often the only validation we have of our self-perceived popularity.
We've boarded the flight from Zurich to Belgrade with that hazy level of hangover where everything is vague, memories evaporate the minute they are made, nothing is done with consideration or care because being conscious is a trick...
We have arrived in Ljubljana, a title that reads more like a WiFi password than a place name, after an eight hour sleep in the Belgrade hotel and a five hour sleep in the car Daniel has found it necessary to retire to his quarters for a nap and recharge for the gig.
03:30 - We are still in the same bar playing darts for measures of aniseed spirits which the loser must purchase, all the doors are locked and a haze of indoor smoke, a strange sight in the 21st Century, chokes the air.
