I’m back! Baaaack in the saddle again ~guitar riff~ ~headbang~ ~Tom Cruise-esque jump~

Anyway, let’s get down to it. I’ve missed a lot in my absence, but I’m just gonna cover what I’ve read in the past two days lol. Trump’s trip has sort of shoved all the other news to one side.  (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, 100 Days


I can’t believe I am still writing these. It’s a testament to my lack of fresh snark material, it really is. That being said, it has been good to keep up with everything. The amount of ignorance on display is ridiculous.

Here’s a list of the previous posts because I haven’t gotten around to making a page

Week 14

So, this week, the first article I stumbled upon contained this:

When asked if he thought he had changed how people vote, Mr Trump pointed to his “very high ratings”, claiming they increased by two or three times when he appeared on the Sunday morning shows. He highlighted Chris Wallace’s Fox News show.

“It had 9.2 million people. It’s the highest they’ve ever had. On any, on air, [CBS’ John] Dickerson had 5.2 million people,” he said.

“It’s the highest for ‘Face the Nation’ or as I call it, ‘Deface the Nation’. It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It’s a tremendous advantage.”

What. The. Actual. Fuck. What is wrong with him? Why is he comparing the ratings of his disaster of a Presidency to an actual disaster? Why the obsession with ratings? It’s weird. Oh, wait, rampant narcissism. Got it.

The Real World: London/ Trump Administration, Week 9


First of all, I  want to say something about the London (Westminster) terror attack really quickly. I don’t usually comment on these things because I feel like everyone reacts differently and it’s easy to end up saying the wrong thing. However, I’m a Londoner and it is alarming to think that someone could just do that to all of those people. It’s needless and extremely sad. My heart goes out to those that died and their loved ones.

Of course, in the aftermath, there was the usual Islamophobic nonsense. It always really irritates me because innocent people dying is not an excuse to try and score points or make useless comments that help no one. (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, week 8 – more of the same shit


I missed last week’s post because I was so tired. This week is even worse but here I am. I’m somewhat out of the loop with regards to the US. The UK media actually started focusing on the mess the current government are doing and it’s been Brexit, Brexit, The Queen gave royal assent aka meaningless permission to invoke Article 50, Brexit, Brexit. I think most of us just want them to shut up. At the same time, it’s crazy that they basically admit that they have no idea what the fuck they’re doing. I might just do a post on it one of these days. (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 5 (re-post)


I was so tired in the past week that I basically took a few days off from the news so I don’t cover a lot this week. I’ve left out the stuff about the new DNC chairman and the latest on healthcare reform but hey, there’s always next week. (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 4: A Whole Lotta Backpfeifengesicht

First things first, I love that the Germans have a word for just about everything.

Backpfeifengesicht: a face in need of a slap

Second of all, there may not be a week 5. I am sorely tempted to just bury my head in the clouds and binge watch reality TV. I need a holiday from real. We’ll see! (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 3



This week’s episode is shorter because the bullshit is occurring at a rate that not even I can (or really want to) keep up with.

Trump loses appeal court bid to reinstate travel ban!! 

Fuck yeah! Of course, the big baby had to have his say via Twitter.


Apparently, he won’t rush to appeal, so.

2016 Roundup + my blog turned 5 in December!


Happy New Year, snarklings!!!! Here’s hoping that 2017 is good to all of us.😊
I’d like to thank everyone who has commented over the years, particularly Trish, JoJo and JM. And to my friends who’ve had to deal with me sending them links over the years 😂

So I thought I’d do a roundup post of sorts! And then babble for a bit.

Stats:

Most popular posts from 2016

1.The one where the Jared set his Pada Warriors on someone who didn’t deserve it

2. The one where I compared Rapunzelecki to Trump

3. Charity stuff

4.Jared’s love affair with McDonalds 

Most popular posts this year that were not posted in 2016

Other shizzle

Last recap:10×10

Snarkvestigation 3

Lifetime snark

My scripts 

Yes! I finally ticked off an item on my bucket list and wrote a script. And then I wrote six more. And sure, they’re not Hollywood standard but it still counts. 

So here they are!

Babble about how my blog helped me 

It was so long that it got its own page here.


It was a quiet year here on the blog but hopefully I will be able to post more next year. My next bad moviethon entry will be Playing It Cool which sounds truly awful. SPN recaps are still on hiatus for now. I’m sure there will be more Lifetime recaps. 

But most of all, there will be snark.
