What was the LAST:

Film you watched? The Outlaw Josey Wales. Don’t judge, it was on and I could not sleep

Thing that annoyed you? Being made to walk around a one-way system in a venue

Thing that made you laugh out loud? Being reminded in front of several people by Barbara Dettering, one of the elders from the Malcolm X Centre and founders of Carnival, that I should know my place and listen to her as she used to change my nappy when I was a baby. 

Piece of good advice you were given? Pick my battles and save my energy for the important ones and not get blindsided by unimportant and time-consuming things.
