Pinterest Strikes Again

Quite some number of years ago I wrote about my Myers-Briggs personality profile.  Every now and then I come across interesting things that make me reflect on this.  Today, courtesy of Pinterest I hit a mother lode of personality profile inspired humour and cleverness.

I’m sorry.  I had to share.  Turn away if it gets too much.

For the Trek-geeks…


For the Whovian geeks…


Possibly my favourite, if slightly creepy for others to realise about me…


A close second…

Mr Oh Waily would second this completely…
(And if I could bold the phrase “They hate small talk”, I would.)


And to finish, the truth…


Come on then, tell us your MBTI, and we can laugh at your foibles too.

A new tradition

So, who is up for guessing where this is?

Well, it’s where Mr Oh Waily is currently. I know where he is staying doesn’t look a thing like this, because he is there for work. I know he is not lounging around in a lagoon that is clear and beautiful, because he is there for work. I know that it probably doesn’t have that sunkissed glow either, as thunderstorms have been forecast for the past week.
I do know that he will need to be rehydrating a lot, and not with a beer bearing the image of a hei wearing lady my dear, after work because the temperature is roughly between 23 and 30° celsius.  And we all know that it is hotter than Hades despite what the Met Services of the world tell us.

So in Mr Oh Waily’s absence I have started a Ms Oh Waily tradition.

Wine* and Movie night.

That would be, so far, a classic movie plus a nice glass of red wine to accompany it.  This is how I plan to spend the evenings of the almost two weeks that Mr Oh Waily is away on this particular trip.  Or until I run through my home library of classics (and wine).  Then we will need to move on to Red Dwarf and Blackadder before finally working my way through the back catalogue of Jacky**/Jackie Chan movies.

So far my tradition has included Roman Holiday***, Funny Face, Sabrina and Casablanca.

Prepare for more Audrey, as I have the boxed set.  I wish I had more Bogart, especially The Maltese Falcon, The African Queen and To Have and Have Not.  I may be able to fish out my Hepburn/Grant/Stewart classic – The Philadelphia Story – as well.  I just loved Ruth Hussey in that one, such a great supporting cast.

I’ll bore you with an update of films revisited in a few days.  In the meantime, anyone want to have a stab at the current location of Mr Oh Waily?  Go on – drop a quick comment if you think you know – it’s nice to hear from you.


* So I am going to sound a bit like an old soak, but isn’t the blogging world about baring your inner person?  Nah, but every mother who has had to do solo parenting duty for any extended period of time without outside support knows exactly where I’m coming from on the glass of wine.  Just organise an intervention when I start talking about Movie night and a Bottle of wine, okay?  Promise?

** Yes, I own DVDs that are of movies so old he was billed as Jacky.  Bless.

*** Where I fell in love with Gregory Peck, yet again.  *Sigh*


p.s.  Yes, I know the post title is something of an oxymoron.  Let your inner grammar Dalek take a tea break. 😉

An Unexpected Journey – Part 2

So the previous version of the Unexpected Journey was not quite what you would expect. Today I hope to make it up to you.

The airline of Middle Earth is rather well known (at least in this part of the world) for their humorous approach to the inflight briefing.  It should, therefore, come as no surprise to find that they are enjoying the arrival of The Hobbit.

Here’s the airplane…

Hobbit 777-300

And here is the latest briefing from the airline of Middle Earth.  Enjoy!

Are you feeling down?  A little glum?  Perhaps a little under the weather?
Well, not any more.  Courtesy of Graham Norton you will be giggling yourself silly, possibly needing to avail yourself of Poise liners and maybe having people stare at you like you’ve gone a little odd.

Today’s humour fest is completely down to his TV show.  I hope you all enjoy this.

Mr Oh Waily thinks you should start with this one as it is “cuter” or more upbeat or something. Personally I think you should start where you get maximum impact.  And you certainly get impact from my choice.

Or, perhaps you like it hot?  Or maybe you are a Harry Potter fan or synchronised swimming hater?

Let me know what your favourite is – there’s bound to be one to tickle your funny bone.
