I love BOOBIES!

I wanted to share with you something which I do not make a habit of saying out loud. Sure, there are those who say it proudly while some others are more embarrassed to admit it publicly. Some of their fans are male. Some are female. But let’s be completely honest. BOOBIES are great!

Am I right?

Am I right?

A booby is a type of seabird in the genus Sula, part of the Sulidae family. Boobies are closely related to the gannets (Morus), which were formerly included in Sula.

This is a blue footed booby

Boobies hunt fish by diving from a height into the sea and pursuing their prey underwater. Facial air sacs under their skin cushion the impact with the water. Boobies are colonial breeders on islands and coasts. They normally lay one or more chalky-blue eggs on the ground or sometimes in a tree nest.

Their name was possibly based on the Spanish slang term bobo, meaning “stupid”, as these tame birds had a habit of landing on board sailing ships, where they were easily captured and eaten. Owing to this, boobies are often mentioned as having been caught and eaten by shipwrecked sailors. Poor birds!

They are also incredibly cute!

This looks like me and a friend on the sauce.


Here are some photos of other type of booby.

Oh and by the way, if you thought from the title I was referring to breasts, then SHAME on YOU!

SHAME ON YOU!


Epic marriage proposal


I’ve seen some epic marriage proposals in my time. Okay, let me rephrase that. I have “seen” some epic marriage proposals in my time on television. BUT, I’ve never seen anything like this. 

The proposal happened while the couple were playing a game of Speak Out, which requires one player to wear the plastic mouthpiece and say tricky phrases for the other contestants to try and decipher.

With the mouthpiece distorting all of his words, “Will you honour me by becoming my wife?” is heard as “the yarn is tangled in the lights” and “the corn is on the ice”.

It takes multiple spluttered attempts for the man to get his message across, as the couple’s children watch on laughing. It’s really quite an innovative and crazy way to propose. 

And after more than three minutes of confusion, the bride-to-be twigs what her boyfriend is asking – and still can’t believe her ears.

“Are you kidding? You’re not kidding? Are you sure? Are you positive?” she asks as he eventually gets down on one knee producing the ring from his pocket. 
It’s a really lovely story and one that I’ll admit made me smile from ear to ear. Romance is a wonderful thing!
