7 things I did not know last week

  1. Dominic Purcell is Australian.
  2. The word ‘avocado’ comes from the Aztec ‘ahuacatl’ meaning tescicle.
  3. Tina Fey wrote and co-starred in Mean Girls.
  4. You can cure a stomach ache if you lie on your left side for 5 minutes. The stomach is on the left side, the oesophagus enters it on the right and therefore gas bubbles can rise and allow you to burp. Reciting the alphabet is optional.
  5. Mary Portas bats for my team. Well, in the female division I suppose, since she left her husband of 13 years and moved in with her partner Melanie Rickey.
  6. Labradors are the most popular breed (by registration) in the world.
  7. The Japan edition of Lily Allen’s ‘Alright Still’ has a song entitled ‘Cheryl Tweedy‘.

    #4 – and I thought I was just a bit weird as, when lying on my left side, my stomach churns and gurgles something chronic! Phew. I am not a weirdo after all!!
