The idea is simple: in a few sentences, people describe the moments that have ruined their day. These snapshot anecdotes are embarrassing, humiliating, horrific - and very, very funny. Perhaps worst of all, they're all 100 per cent real... *** Today, I fell asleep. I felt something on my face. I batted it away. It was my hamster. It died from hitting the wall. FML *** *** Today, I went to the doctor with my parents. When the doctor asked if I was sexually active, I said, 'Yes.' My mom laughed and said, 'Good one.' My dad, for added effect, said, 'Your hand doesn't count.' FML *** *** Today, my girlfriend dumped me proclaiming she wanted someone more like her 'Edward'. I asked her who Edward was.

Whilst in certain quarters it may be fashionable to suppose that there is no such thing as society historians have had no difficulty in finding their subject. The difficulty, rather, is that the advance has occurred through such an outpouring of research and writing that it is hard for anyone but the specialist to keep up with the literature or grasp the overall picture. In these three volumes, as is the tradition in Cambridge Histories, a team of specialists has assembled the jigsaw of recent monographic research and presented an interpretation of the development of modern British society since 1750, from three complementary perspectives: those of regional communities, of the working and living environment, and of social institutions. Each volume is self-contained, and each contribution, thematically defined, contains its own chronology of the period under review. Taken as a whole they offer an authoritative and comprehensive view of the manner and method of the shaping of society in the two centuries of unprecedented demographic and economic change.

My life was like some psychotic mutant cross breed of Notting Hill and Bridget Jones¿s Diary. I worked in a second-hand bookstore and I was a blonde British girl trying to find the love of my life. The only difference was, I had no handsome(ish) Brits after my pudgy British arse, I didn¿t smoke like a chimney, but on occasion I did drink like a fish. and yes, my mother did like to send me her off cast clothing that looked like they were right out of the nineteen-forties.Oh, and I lived in L.A. Movie capital of the world.It took a twisted turn, however, the day my gay roommate managed to convince me that going in to a movie studio for Extras Casting was a good idea.If I had known what my life would be like after that fateful day, I would have told him to sod off and cut his bollocks off for dragging my arse out the door.
