Wow! I can’t believe it has been 20 years since the first episode of Friends was aired on our TV screens! I would have been 11! That makes me feel old lol! Friends is one of my favourite shows ever! I love the “WE WERE ON A BREAK!!” ep. Also the ep where Monica, Phoebe and Rachel wear the wedding dresses. My best friend and I wanted to recreate that ep on the night before her wedding lol! The one where Joey speaks “French” always has me in stitches and, to this day, I still cry when Monica and chandler propose to each other. Awww it was so romantic! And , of course, the last ever ep has me crying, too. She got off the plane! I was on holiday in Blackpool with my now ex boyfriend when that aired and I told him we weren’t leaving the hotel for the evening until we’d watched the last ever ep of Friends hahaha! The show had such an impact on my life and there always seems to be a moment in Friends that mirrors something going on in my life hahaha.

Prepare to feel old – Friends turns 20 this month.
It’s been two whole decades since we were first introduced to Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe yet we’re still quoting the show.
236 episodes were aired across the show’s ten-year run and the sitcom has had an incredible cultural impact. Trying to choose just 20 must-watch episodes is no easy feat, but I’ve had a go. Here are my choices, which episodes would you choose?
1. The One With The Baby On The Bus
Phoebe sings a song about a Smelly Cat for the first time. We’d hear it many more times over the next ten years.
2. The One With The Prom Video
Ross sports a dodgy moustache as an old video reveals his true feelings for Rachel.
3. The One Where No One’s Ready

Being an owner of 6 gorgeous cats, this sickens and upsets me. They could have been people’s pets! What’s more, it’s just wrong! Now, the jury’s out on whether it was racially motivated or left out by one of the restaurants, but I know where my vote would lie. Absolutely disgusted!

A bin bag of cats’ heads found in Manchester’s ‘Curry Mile’ may have been placed there in a ‘racially motivated’ incident.
The animal heads were found by James Robinson in an alley just off Wilmslow Road, which is an area famous for its Indian restaurants.
‘I was going out for some food and walking down the side street when I saw a black bin bag filled with something that looked suspicious,’ the 34-year-old told Manchester Evening News.
‘When I opened it I couldn’t believe my eyes. There were about five cats’ heads in there. I can’t get over the shock of it.’
Manchester City Council, which suggested the incident may have been ‘racially motivated’, ruled out any of the local businesses as perpetrators.
‘This is obviously an incredibly distressing…

I have recently found out about the Six Book Challenge, which is run by The Reading Agency and takes place every year in libraries, colleges, workplaces and prisons.
Their “How to join in“webpage says,
“The Reading Agency’s Six Book Challenge invites you to pick six reads and record them in a diary to get a certificate. Sign up now and create a profile.
You may be taking part already through your library, college or workplace – in which case you will already have a reading diary. If not, please contact us and say where you’re based so that we can try to link you up with someone running the Six Book Challenge near you and you can get a reading diary through them. Once you’ve completed the challenge you can enter a national prize draw. Last year, prizes included Kobo eReaders and a trip to London.

I think all budding authors need to be aware of this.

Got this in the mail yesterday. Fascinatingly, it was sent to Luther Siler– who, remember, isn’t a real person– at my actual physical address. The number of organizations that can pair his name with my address are… limited. And I am not happy with them.
This is page 3 of a three-page letter; I’m not going to bother reproducing the first two. If you happen to get this in the mail, you should throw it the hell away.
Before we start, the first page is a fake check for $601. Their “Ultimate Publishing Package” costs $1600, meaning that with their “discount” you’re only spending nine hundred and ninety-nine dollars of your money– before they make you a single dime, and as we’ll see it’s going to be more than that anyway.
Let’s walk through this “offer” bit by bit, shall we?
