Friday lites – three things we liked this week

Songs have a way of timestamping your life. For us, Boy Meets Girl’s Waiting for a Star to Fall was the end of primary school. So their recent interview about the song and its impact was a blast from the past – and who knew they’d also written Whitney Houston’s hits How Will I Know and I Wanna Dance With Somebody?

Sorry about this, but someone showed us this silly clip two weeks ago. It’s beneath all of us, but we found it to be snort-laughter inducing… Sound on for the full effect.

If you like paella (or as a friend calls it, hot wet rice…), nothing beats the real thing. But it’s quite a bit of effort – unlike this baked rice with broccoli and prawns. It’s got the great paella flavour, with a fraction of the hassle. Good for a weekday meal.
