Oh man, I’ve been saving up randoms for weeks now, I hope you’re ready!  This is the seasonal edition…

1. Did you get new techy toys for Christmas?  New phones?  New tablets?  Are you addicted to them yet?  Maybe so addicted that you’d walk off a pier while you checked into Facebook?!  That’s exactly what a Taiwanese tourist did in Melbourne just before Christmas!  Police rescued her 20 minutes later.  Let’s hope Santa bought her a new phone…

2. Maybe instead of walking off a pier you were playing one of the 150 billion games of Candy Crush Saga played last year o.O  500 million people have downloaded it, and in the US it is estimated that it makes £550,000 per DAY!  I’m totally in the wrong industry lol

3. Were you playing any games with your family over the holidays?  Maybe a little hide and seek?  But did any of you find yourself naked in a washing machine?  And did you then get stuck?!  Well one prospective Romeo, again from Melbourne (they must attract all the nutters there ;o) ) did, meaning the firemen had to come and release him.  Well I suppose it made a nice change for them…

4. At the start of the new year, you were probably dreaming of the year ahead and what might happen.  Did any of you manage to spark a gold rush though?  Last October an Indian man’s dream caused a gold rush in Uttar Pradesh after he saw a long dead king tell him that 1,000 tonnes of gold were buried under his old fort.  After 4 weeks of digging the government found nothing, but undeterred, the man himself is beavering away, determined to find it!

5. Perhaps you decided that the new year was the perfect time to find your new partner (preferably not one that likes to hang out in washing machines)  If you did, check out this list of cliches found on online dating profiles, and what they really mean, as compiled by the Beeb.  Oh, and then look at the follow up of ones that irritate readers the most!
