The heebie geebies

Director Tim Burton is currently applying his considerable talents to Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ – due for release in March 2010.  I actually always found this a rather unsettling story as a child, which is why I’m not a hundred percent sure that I will be rushing out to see this film.  Having had a look at the character and set stills displayed on the IMDb site, it looks as though Tim Burton’s imagination has run rampant again, producing an amazing result … but one which may just give me the heebie geebies.

You're kidding…right?

sad-boyThis recipe was advertised on my Googlemail page and just the title made me click on it.  I had no idea that people still ate Spam let alone a ‘French Fry and Spam Casserole’ (with a few crushed cornflakes in there for good measure)! 

Actually this inspires me to start collecting the worst sounding recipes I can find.  At some point I may (may, I say) actually try them to see if they really do taste as bad as they sound.  Anyone want to contribute?  Genuine recipes only (together with a note of the source if you can).

Here is the recipe for Spam and French Fry Casserole, as listed at recipesource.com.  Try it – I dare you.

Ghostly observer?

Cadbury's wackiness

Here’s a glass and a half of full cream Cadbury’s wackiness. I particularly love the little girl’s face.  🙂

Google Ghost

I’ve just found this over at The Daily Telegraph.  Seen on Google Street View it appears to show the ghost of a Victorian lady in the once notorious docklands area of Tiger Bay, Cardiff, UK, where a series of murders were committed 200 years ago.  The full story can be read here(BTW, I also looked up the  Google alien reported in that story …in case you’re interested)!
