Little Miss Random Recommends – Week Ending 15/07/2012

I must apologise for the late posting. I am just simply exhausted, darling. It happens. Even the Duracell Bunny needs to change its batteries every now and then.

Also, if you haven't yet discovered the sheer insanity that is @Betfairpoker, then take an hour or two out of your day and check out the bizarre surrealism of his/her/its tweets. The recent c conversation between @Betfairpoker, @Bear_Removals and @OfficeBearsOut regarding the removal of bears from their officers (naturally) is hilarious. Go take a look now!
