I think James Corden has one of the best jobs in the world. He got to hang out and sing with Stevie Wonder. Check it out!

He seems like a really decent guy. And notice the English accent that pulls out of the bag.

A month ago the RAC (underwritten by AVIVA) insured my daughter to drive my car as a learner driver. Now that she's passed her test, I've just spent 20 minutes on the phone with the RAC to find that the same insurance company won't insure her to drive the same car.

A colleague has a notebook which is just the right unusual, non-standard, size, so I asked him where he got it. Turns out it's a "Moleskine" branded pad. So I visited their website to see what's available. After registering and checking out a few products I ended up contacting them through their online chat box.

Here's the conversation.

Giannina: Yes
Giannina: if is the price you see it means that is right
