The Cutsie Cupcake Test

You're Happy Cute

People find you cute because you truly shine from within. You are an optimistic and cheerful person.

You have a lot of positive energy, and you're rarely stuck in a rut. You are also very creative.

At times, you have so much energy that you can become a bit high strung or anxious. It's hard to channel all of your drive.

You sometimes take on too much and get overwhelmed, but even when your life is chaotic, you have a sense of humor about it.

Cork Midsummer Festival 2010

The Cork Midsummer Festival is coming up soon; it runs from the 12th to the 27th of June. You can click here to take a look at the programme for the festival. Unfortunately there is no Spiegeltent this year, which I have loved going to in the past but there are Heineken nights in the Crane Lane Theatre and the Pavilion. There is also cabaret and comedy at the Crane Lane too.

Public Health Warning

For the sake of your sanity I would caution anyone contemplating going to see ‘The Back Up Plan’ that is out in cinemas at the moment. This is a complete turd of a film. I have watched a lot of crap films (including one starring Vanilla Ice!) but this one takes the complete biscuit in terms of crappiness. I’ll openly admit to enjoying a good old chick flick where I know what I’m getting and it doesn’t bother me that it is cheesy or fluffy. But the Back Up Plan is just so bad, even the opening credits are awful! Several cringe thresholds were well and truly broken. I can’t talk about the home birthing scene because that was too traumatic and looking back on the film I fail to recall any redeeming features. May you never have the misfortunate to see this film!
