Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone...– When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating. It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them.

andymurrray: I just find it hilarious that eurovision was invented because europe was like “no more war guys, fight it out through songs” i find it hilarious that it worked
andymurrray: we all know who the real star of eurovision is
andymurrray: in Europe we don’t say ‘I love you’ we say “12 points to…” which translates to “you are close to me” and I think that’s beautiful
agroncriss: i remember when france gave the uk one point last year and then graham norton said: we built a tunnel to your country

jhnmyr: New record this Summer… Not a Born and Raised “plus”… A new group of songs to bring the whole thing up to date with Summer 2013. I have that hunger that always precedes something meaningful. See you all soon. And thanks for the warm welcome back to the stage. Getting back on it a little at a time. John Announcing this the day before my birthday, must mean good things!

lightspeedsound: firelordazula: Last week, the director of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre suggested there were currently too many public school actors on stage and screen, as he unveiled a new project to train children from all walks of life.

FInally got tickets to go see John Mayer at the O2 in London. Had to pay extra mind you, but I suppose it’s worth it, hahahaha. 1 date in the UK is utterly ridiculous though. But now I’ve paid that much I think I’d hate it if he added another, lmao.
friendlyangryfeminist: the brilliant thing about being a woman is that I’m punished for both trusting and distrusting men! I should magically know which man is going to harm me by having a brief conversation with him. if I trust Bad Men, then, well. I should’ve known. if I don’t trust Nice Men though, I’m an utter bitch who deserves violence. don’t I know most men are good people?
