» Narrow Escapes

Not me but my Nan's best friend's son in law works in New York and worked in one of the towers which was hit. On the morning of it though, his wife had gone to hospital thinking she was in labour so he turned round as he got to Manhattan and went to the hospital. Then the attacks happened. Everyone thought he was killed but then he let everybody know he was all right and that it was the luckiest day of his life.

» "You're doing it wrong"

I found out last month, after years of avoiding it, that cheese cake doesn't contain cheeses like cheddar or red leicester but mascarpone, a sweet cream-like cheese. I was unnecessarily put off by non-existant sponges coated with cheddar. Genius(!)

» Beautiful Moments, Part Two

Yesterday night my hamster looked close to death. It was shaking like a druggie withdrawing and wasn't able to walk or anything. I checked this morning to see if it was still alive to take it to the vets and she/he (undetermined sex) is back to his/her normal healthy self!

» Money-saving tips

Save money on drinks
In my really skint days I used to take out a bottle of mouthwash filled with cheap vodka with a few drops of food colouring. Buy a soft drink (or if you're without a single penny, a glass of water) and drink it. Then go to the Ladies' and drink the 'mouthwash'.

» Drunk Parents

My Entire Childhood
My parents were obsesssed with alcohol, drinking every day.

- My mum used to walk home from the pub to her shouting "(HER FOOTBALL TEAM TILL I DIE!) at the top of her voice. She lives in a respectable area so doesn't go down well.

- My dad decided it was a good idea to max a credit card with a £15k limit on gambling.

- Getting a phone call from the police at 11:30 saying my Mum's passed out on a grass verge in the worst area in the city - can I go and pick her up. (The most recent one but was after a funeral)

- My Mum drove to the 24h Tesco, whilst intoxicated, to get more booze.

- My Mum once tried to stab herself after an arguement with my Dad (I think she was just being melodramatic). I was about four but I will always remember walking into the kitchen and dropping the knife into the sink, telling her not to stab Dad.

Yes sadly my parents had a very turbulent relationship. They stayed together for another six years after the above incident. Since splitting, they are both actually normal now and behave like adults.
