A lot of fun stuff for you today:

Can’t remember where i found this photo, but i just love the colours of the wrapping.

Wow! Is this on TV in North America? I just love this animated Coca-Cola commercial, “Happiness Factory”. Best parts: the Luv Puppies, the snowman shredder, the penguins waving ‘bye to the coke bottle.

Just in case you lose track during the weekly grind: Is it Friday?

This is especially for my friend Jeff–Bugging You–because we have always believed that it is our purpose in life to bother each other. Whenever we call, we start off our conversations like this:
“Hi, am I bothering you?
“No.”
“No? Too bad! I’ll have to try harder!”

And I thought this article, 50 Common Interview Q&A, would be something interesting to do with my advanced level class, as the majority of them need English for business purposes. Except of course, I will just give them the list at first, and ask them to speculate on why the interviewer might ask each question, and what kind of answer would be best to give.

Finally, Tony Roma’s here in Korea is having a 40% off event every Monday until September 30. Print off the coupons and go enjoy! How about it, Liz?

The only reason I regret not being able to watch North American TV:

Made with images from Flickr…check out Spell with Flickr and have some fun!

And to continue with the visual pleasure, check out likebetter.com. You are shown two pictures at a time, and you click on the one you like better. After a few tries, click on the brain, and it will analyze your personality based on your picture choices. It doesn’t do a bad job, actually. It figured out that I am not religious, not particularly wealthy, and prefer to socialize one-on-one.

I love interior decorating, i love design, and i love colour…so upon ripely reflecting, it is a logical conclusion that i must absolutely adore IKEA. Flipping through their online catalogue, I came across this totally unique kitchen table, this blanket that i absolutely must have (or make–hah! right…), and the fabulous striped rug below:

Singing Horses! oooooooo-OOOOOOOO-oooooooooo-weeee-oooooooo! Boomboom-boom ch-ch! Sha-la-la-la!

Click on each horse in turn to make them sing in 4-part harmony. Too cute!

And just in case you haven’t had enough silliness, head on over to YouTube, where it’s a Swedish Chef fest! (More over at Google Video, too)

I particularly love the dough sketch…brings back memories of watching the Muppet Show on Sunday evenings with Mom and Jaret. Bork, bork, bork!

According to this article, this is my ice cream personality, and I find it to be quite right:

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
You have a sweet tooth, Taurus, and you’re also quite social. Because you like the finer things in life, you can be found at a local bistro sharing a dish of rich, creamy gelato with a friend. Or, you may opt for the sinful Founder’s Favorite at Cold Stone Creamery … sweet cream ice cream, pecans, brownies, fudge and caramel. A Taurus friend once said that eating a bowl of chocolate ice cream topped with raspberries, almonds and Amaretto is “comparable to having good sex … you can enjoy it slowly, to the very last drop.”

ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 🙂

And now for a bit of colour:

Check out these photos of a really colourful stationery shop, Broadway Paper. And then there’s a great furniture and home decorating company called Maine Cottage. I particularly like their bookshelves, and just playing with the color palette.

This looks like a good movie, with Kal Penn in the main role. It’s about a young man named Gogol Ganguli who wants to change his name to fit in with mainstream American society, but then learns the history behind his name…something to do with train accident that his father was in in the 70’s in India. I particularly like a bit of dialogue from the trailer where the son asks, of his father’s near death experience:

“Do I remind you of that night?”

The father replies, “You remind me of everything that followed. Every day since then has been a gift.”

It’s based on the book by Jhumpa Lahiri and it opens in September in the States, but I don’t know about here in Korea…

Courtesy of Nothing to Do with Arbroath comes this little visual puzzle. I’ve seen it before, and stared at it for hours, but I still can’t figure out how it works. How many people do you count?
