Hey all!

So… social distancing. Naff, isn’t it? We’ve watched a dozen movies, cooked 1 million batches of meals and conducted more video calls than we care to mention. Gotta be done though, hasn’t it. We’ve scared ourselves half to death watching the news today, so thought it would be fun to send out a blog that maybe brightened people’s days a bit. It was, after all, International Day of Happiness, only a few days ago.

A few fun facts for a rainy day:

The name for ‘fear of long words’ is Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia

Cows moo in regional accents

Dolly Parton once lost a Dolly Parton look-alike contest

If you get bored isolating, banging your head against a wall for an hour actually burns 150 calories.

Fancy a quiz? Course you do! Answers back to me via email!

The AAF Self-Distancing Quiz.

  1. Which nuts are used to make marzipan?
  2. What is Marilyn Manson’s real name?
  3. How many eyes does a honeybee have?
  4. What was the highest-selling song of the 00s?
  5. Which two actors have played the role of Genie in Disney’s two movies called Aladdin?


Some funny Youtube videos:

A mad video of a dog imitating a police siren

Ryan Gosling won’t eat his cereal (a classic)

Mine and Sam’s favourite Youtube video (includes a child being hilarious for 6 mins)


All the stuff on this blog should last you, gee I dunno, maybe 9 minutes. See; social distancing isn’t that bad! In all seriousness though, if anyone is finding these weird times tough, just remember that it is for the greater good. The world needs you!

Finally, see the bottom of the page for some of the best self-isolating memes out there.

Lots of love for last week’s International Day of Happiness,
