Do you ever get that feeling that if it can go wrong then it will go wrong? Albert Ndreu must know exactly what we are talking about. The hopeless romantic spent two weeks meticulously planning his perfect proposal after buying an engagement ring for Valerija Madevic. He then spelled out “Marry Me?” in more than 100 candles for his girlfriend and decided to surprise his sweetheart by filling their living room with around 100 tealights and roughly 60 balloons. Albert then went out to pick up the love of his life to bring her home and see the surprise – but after he left the flat caught fire. All his plans soon turned to disaster as his flat burned down.
What is your favourite website? Which site do you use the most and does it do the job you really want it to perform? That is what this series of posts is all about – our favourite websites. Tim Berners-Lee published the first ever website in 1991 and there must be billions more that have come and gone – or even remained – since then. Serious sites, business sites, dysfunctional sites (yes, ok – we know who we are) or maybe sites just devoted to grumpy cats. So, I thought I would have a sit down and decide which sites I thought had brought us the most enjoyment, functionality, performance or just wasted our precious time over the last thirty years.
Hi my name is… my name is… excuse me, my name is Slim Shady Lisa. You might have noticed me commenting on here from time to time using the name of “Just Me”. I have been a friend of Davey’s since about 2003. I used to have a blog on Blogger well before he started to blog and before he discovered these pesky bears. He used to leave comments on my blog and before you knew it we were chatting away on MSN – who remembers good old MSN? I invited him to write a few guest posts on my blog and we became great friends. I even travelled over to the UK in 2007 from Canada for a visit and we had a whale of a time together. Fast forward sixteen years and I now comment on his blog and he has invited me to write some guest posts for him. As the old saying goes; what goes around, comes around…
There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…
Afew years ago, Natalie and I investigated adopting a baby. We are both getting too old to have natural children and we are destined to live out our days together even though we are both just friends and not a couple. We asked child services and they were pretty much of the opinion that they handout kids to anyone these days – that is a joke but probably with some truth in there somewhere. They recommended we attend parenting courses where any questions we might have could be answered and advice given. There were about half-a-dozen couples in our class and we were doing an ‘ice-breaker’ to help get to know one another. Everyone was asked to share their reasons for wanting to adopt or foster a child with the group. Everyone was giving motivational reasons why they thought a child could add something to their lives. Then we came round to this one guy who just shrugged and said, “We have three kids already, but there’s an extra seat in our minivan!” The whole group just fell about laughing. That was my first introduction to Jackson.
Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!
