How to get out of a car without showing your knickers

Category: , , By panda_eyed

Tarepanda - he makes me smile with his pudgy cuteness. He's my mascot for several reasons:
  1. 1. He's a panda, which matches my blog name
  2. 2. Pandas are Chinese, as am I
  3. You often see him looking tired, lazing about or being clumsy, just like me :)
  4. He's just tOO cute, and so lovable!

I'm a bit ashamed of my previous post. Its not often I get that low, and I would like to stress that in between these times, i.e. normal day-to-day life, I'm okay, and not depressed all the time. I'm still learning about how to cope, this is relatively new for me, as I hadn't fully accepted the diagnosis until it was confirmed a few weeks ago. I guess I shouldn't blog during those low points, but you guys really REALLY helped a LOT, and it gives me great comfort to know that I have your support.

Anyway, moving on, I found a cool site recently that I wanted to share with you: What is it? Life explained. On film. Whether you're looking for how to make a chocolate and orange cake, how to change a tyre, or other more amusing ones such as How to get our of a car without showing your knickers and How to chat someone up on the train, this site has it all!

Here's a few of my faves from there:

How to insult someone using British Sign Language
How to make spring rolls
How to make a pina colada
How to eat sushi
and bizarrely, How to undo a bra with one hand.

    Hello Pandy I'm glad to see that you're feeling brighter.
    Have you seen this before?

    Pandy - I do love your little panda splat mascot.
    I have to come back and check out these "how tos" tomorrow, as I am off to bed in a minute.
    But it seems even Jemima Khan has joined the throng (thong, BOOM BOOM) of shameless females who need to learn how to get out of a car with dignity.

    Flighty - LOL I love that panda sneeze video. It's all over YouTube too, and the other day it was even on the television.

    Oh....I do agree with you. Tarepanda is really cute and lovely. I like the specially one you put in your current post (swinging on a swing). Hey, would you mind teaching me how to put an animation icon on the blog?

    You know, one of my blog pal who likes Chinese Panda very much. He uses a Panda as his blog mascot. If you like, please visit his blog Pandabonium

    Panda_eyes, you do make us L.O.L. by putting those links. ;-)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Okay, I spent most of my lunch hour watching the sushi demonstrations - they're great! And it was nice to see your face, albeit on Feathers' blog :-) Hugs, honey.

    Hello Flighty, thanks for the link, it makes me giggle every time! Hope you're dandy xx

    Livs, it's good advice - I'm so clumsy I always trip out of the car or bang my head and such-like. Hope you've caught up on sleep now, it was good seeing you on the weekend!

    Boso, it was great, wasn't it? :) Glad you liked!

    Amylou, missed you this weekend! Thanks sweetie, I'm feeling much better in spirit now :) Hope to see you soon xx

    Hi Pinkpanther. I'm not very technical-minded, but I just saved the .gif file and then posted it as you would post a picture, and it worked. I think with some animations though, you might have to save it in a web-hosting place first (like before you place the URL on, but that's a little more complicated, and I'm not entirely sure how to go about that. I'm useless, sorry! Glad you liked the links, and I'll go and visit the other Panda now ;) thanks! x

    Nikki, thought you'd like that one! I was fascinated by the number of customs in a simple meal! I've just seen Feather's blog, hehe, my face looks slightly warped in that pic, I don't know why! Lovely Feathers!
    Oh, and *hugs back*, Nikki! xx

    Hello Panda_eyed,

    Just a quick note from Videojug here to say thanks for the link to our website. We really appreciate any exposure from the people who enjoy our site, and hopefully you all did! Anyway that's all i've come to say, but if there are other bloggers there- please spread the word. Why not make a video yourselves; "How To Care For Panda's"- that's should be a cracker!

    Cheers again- i'll look out for a panda when i leave the building tonight; might even see you!

    Hello person at videojug :) Thanks for stopping by. I've used your site for lots of things recently, but most useful (for me) are the recipes. Well done on creating a great site :)

Something to say?
