Last Friday in the first ever Soap Star Friday I showed you, my fabulous readers, the delights of Danish TV soap 2900 Happieness. It was from 2007 so I thought it was only natural to take you back a bit, to a time when things were not quite so fabulous in Denmark. Introducing
A show about, well how should I know, I didn't watch it. Oh, ok, I did a little research about it now but I honestly didn't watch it as I couldn't watch Channel 3 at the time. It's a show about life at, and around a small town hospital. It ran for 3 years and was hugely popular. You can clearly see why from the clip, right?
You can't sum up MJ in one post so I had to make two. The first one saw Sabrina flashing her finest assets at us. Reminding us why she had those massive... hits or tits? She sang of Boys, saying she was looking for a good time, said she was a Hot Girl being dynamite. She was looking for My Chico with All Of Me and felt Like a Yoyo. It was fabulous, 80s high hair, big ear rings, shoulder pads, catchy pop and delightful gay abandon.
All of this perfectly embodies everything MJ is, will and can be. Enjoy the videos.
We are here today to celebrate MJ's 2 years of blogging. 2 years of blogging the most fabulous filth. We've seen her win Old Knudsens Most Filthy Blogger award, being stalked by the Mongs, almost leaving us and sharing with us the delightful images of Sean Connery in red leather getup. To celebrate this minx I've hooked up with one of my all star favorite 80s singers. A minx herself who had a few hits (and misses) over the years. So without further ado.
Sabrina flies the flag for MJ on her special day.
Pete and Sabrina says: HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY MJ
Be sure to tune in again Tuesday for a little video celebration of the minx that is MJ
It's only natural that I would give you, my fabulous readers, a good treat on Good Friday. So today I'm starting a new segment called Soap Star Friday which will probably run for some time as I'm a huge fan of the soaps. Some more than others, but even the bad and ugly have great moments. This is what this segment is all about. Discovering the brilliance in the old as well as new soaps on TV. It will consist mostly of clips found on YouTube (We love YouTube) but also screen caps and other goodies found, stolen, borrowed or discovered on the almighty interweb.
The show we discover today is a Danish soap. It started in August of last year and ran until Christmas where in ended in a dramatic cliffhanger like all good soaps do. Since you can't understand what they are saying and I am lazy to translate you can go here to check out more background on
A colleague of mine and I started watching it thinking it was kitsch and it surely is. Bad acting and bad scripts make a fabulously fun show. We spent many days texting each other laughing over this show. Enjoy the teasers.
One of the villains of the show is this guy, David Owe who is a Danish celebrity who made his fame doing Dancing With Stars and did a couple of movies and released an album of covers duetting with his wife on amongs others Where the Wild Roses Grow originally done by Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue. Never has such a haunting song been mutilated into something you hear at high tea, But he looks good yeah?
IDV did this (sort of), who stole it from Frobi and I can't think of anything to blog today so I figured I'd do the latest and most avantgarde meme in blogland: The View From Your Kitchen Window.
It's pretty self explanatory. I have a bus stop (actually two) right outside my kitchen window which makes it quite interesting standing watching the street while cooking. When I stand at bus stops waiting my eyes wander and I automatically end up looking into peoples homes observing them if there is anyone home. It's natural an instict to me. Then when I was making the gayer cake this weekend I suddenly felt someone looking at me. It was such an odd feeling to have when you are all alone but then I turned my head and there it was. An older lady staring at me like I was Jim Davis - you know, the guy who played Jock in Dallas.
It was an invasion of privacy so I stared her down stirring the custard. She looked away in shame, how proud I was. Now I just have to stop staring into other peoples homes myself. Or maybe not, because what's the fun in that.
If you don't like the smell, get out of my kitchen
First off I'd like to introduce you, my dear readers, to the kitchen that I've spent so much time in making delights especially for you.
It looks lovely and quite clean doesn't it? No muck in the corners, no rotting stuff or dishes in the sink. All clean. So why is it that it smells funky in there?
That's what I've been asking myself until I spotted this culprit.
Who knew that something that looks so lovely could smell so disgusting. Like cat pee really. The really harsh kind. Clearly the people giving me this lovely Fleur de cat pee don't like me very much. Or maybe the intentions were honourable because I'm really bad at keeping flowers alive and this one requires water about once a month. Still I can't help but wonder if my mother and father were trying to tell me something..
I will however find out as I'm going to stay with them from this Friday until Wednsday and will ask. If anyone knows the real name of this stink bomb please be sure to tell me. I like to know my enemy.
Can you spray it with Febreeze to get rid of the smell?
I promised myself I wouldn't do anymore Cooking for dummies for a while as it seems every other post is about this. However there are special circumstances beyond my control. It seems I have inadvertently triggered the magic sentence making me the *ahem* proud *coughs* winner *coughs* of the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts from Tatas. This feat should be celebrated in some way, and since I'm fresh out of alcohol I decided to make a gayer cake. So here goes..
