    A new estate agent opened up around the corner from us. There's a ledge at the bottom of the shop front windows, and smokers seemed to like sitting there on their smoko break (it's in a big apartment building with a Woolies, BigW etc). Anyway, the business owners are of Oriental background so English is possibly not their first language. They stuck a sign on their ledge saying:
    "please do not seat in front of the display"

    It really bugged me, and I was so tempted to scribble out the 'seat' and put 'sit'...but someone beat me to it! It only took a couple of weeks and the sign was replaced with the correct wording. Phew! What a long winded message

    If only being a school teacher ensured this, I would be a much happier parent!

    My cousin just got a new tattoo.

    Oh, it is so beatiful.

    Really, it's beatiful.

    It says 'beatiful' in giant curly letters down her side, reaching from her armpit to her mid thigh.

    Out of the 83 comments below the picture, nobody has mentioned {or noticed?} it yet.
    Should I take the liberty?

    Oh MY god!!!! Do it!!! Gold.

    FOB always calls DS "muscles" but spells it on cards etc as "mussels". DH and I laugh so much and call him our little sea creature. DS has since corrected him, lmao!
    He said it on his FB page and someone corrected him... Possibly the best day of my life.

    I think obtuse angles are the most precious. Acute angles are a dime a dozen.

    Are you kidding? Just look at a right angle and tell me it is not the cutest thing you have ever seen in your life.

    They're just so square. It's like, 'live a little, angle. Not everything has to be so perfect all the time.' I prefer my angles a little quirky.
