I laughed more than a normal person would at this...hehehehe!


I have a bone to pick right now...(I don't like that makes NO sense whatsoever...why would you pick a bone??!)

But anyway...yeah..what's the deal with Facebook?! Why has everyone suddenly got one except me?? Even my mother has one!! What's the big appeal?? Isn't it just like Myspace and Bebo, and Tagged, but a zillion times more annoying??? 

I'm irked by it. First...everyone had Myspace, and told me to make a profile there. Which I did. Just when I had my page all pretty and HTML'd and whatnot, they told me to make a bebo page. Which I resisted for a while...and then made. (Nobody told me to make a Tagged page, I made that mistake all by myself. Don't have it? GOOD!)

So now my false little bubble of Bebo security has been burst by bloody Facebook! (I don't mean to swear there...I had a little alliteration thing goin on though...)

I refuse on principal to get one hiss to Facebook!!! 

Irrational Fears...

We all have them. The slightly less than normal things that make our hearts race, have us reaching for the cushion to hide our eyes, or the duvet to hide under. Others don't understand them, and we can't explain them, but nevertheless, they're real, and they're terrifying!

So, I thought we could share our irrational fears..we might even get a laugh out of some of them!!

My top 5, are, in no particular order (they all terrify me equally..)as follows:

Ok..well, I'm afraid of ALL birds, but pigeons are the worst. They are EVERYWHERE, and..the pigeons where I live have a serious attitude problem. They have no fear...(I've actually had this conversation, in depth, with a work colleague...)They don't fly away when I shoo them (from a safe distance of course...), instead, they look at you with their beady little eyes, as if to say "Oh yeah??? You and what army, bitch?!" and keep strutting on their merry way, bopping their heads like they don't have a care in the world! 

BE WARNED!! Pigeons are all evil and want to eat your livers!! I hope they all get gammy legs and die. Yeah...

Small green men with wild, orange hair and pervy 'Oirish' accents who sit on a pot of gold all day, cackling all sinister like to themselves...usually while innebriated! Need I say more!?

Painted People
You know like the ones on Grafton Street, painted all silver (or gold, if you're lucky...) Yeah...what is the deal with them!? What sort of sick, twisted fecker gets a buzz out of scaring innocent children for money?! They should all be lined up and shot (while people stand jingling the spare change in their pockets..)Yeah...

I don't trust them. Just what are beardy people hiding (except maybe food...) under there??? Hmmm...the mind boggles...(well...mine does anyway...)

Billy Connolly
I think this is possibly my oddest irrational fear...but the man petrifies me! It stems from a childhood thing...I don't know if anyone remembers, but he was once in an ad for some alcohol or other...(I'll YouTube it and post the link...if I'm brave enough..)..and he had a puppet of himself...and it was just horrible! Scared the bejaysus outta me! To this day, I cannot watch him on the skin crawls, I get goosebumps..not good! 
And he has a beard...Nuff said!!!

So...I've told you mine...what are yours?? 

[EDIT: I can't find the video with the puppet, but I've found this one...I'm having minor palpitations now having watched it. It's terrifying!!!]

New ink baby!

Off I went, into town yesterday, to get inked (again!). It's about a year or so since I got my last tattoo, so I'd forgotten just what I was letting myself in for! I soon remembered when I reached the studio...and heard the bzzzzzz of the tattoo gun!

My tattoo was drawn by the talented (and gorgeous) tattoo man, and off I was! 15 mins later, I was inked! And this is the result!


I'm in love!

Edited to say what it is! It's a version of the Scorpio symbol!

Take a deep breath..

This is my new (possibly) philosophy for life:

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.


I discovered this a few days ago and just fell in love with it. (and yes, I know it's a bit of a cop-out blog post, but bear with me for a while!)
