From the Universe

My wish for you, is that you succeed beyond your wildest imagination. That you find love in places that astound you. And that you have friends who call you "just because."

I dream that you go barefoot more than you wear shoes. That you play as hard as you work. And that you laugh more than you cry.

I want you to set the bar high, but not too high. To reach for the stars, but with your toes on the ground. And to never, ever stop dreaming.

But most of all, I wish for your happiness.
And these dreams of mine are what started it all.

Cool Things I found This Week

Having a quiet moment at my desk at work, and noticed how this wood grain looked like a bear.

Ok, so you have to squint and tilt your head, but you get it.... right?

It's not what's happening around you that determines your health, finances, or hotness, but what's happening inside of you - exclusively.

You hottie,
The Universe

p.s: When you bring "it" to me in thought, I'll bring "it" to you as a thing - no matter what, no matter what, no matter what.

Quirky Tuesday

19 of the most ridiculous complaints made by holidaymakers to their travel agent.
  • "The beach was too sandy."
  • A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time.
  • "Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."
  • "We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."
  • "No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."
  • "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England it only took the Americans three hours to get home."
  • "My fiancĂ© and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."
  • "I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."
  • "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. we're trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying here?"
  • "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."
  • "We had to queue outside with no air conditioning
  • "I was bitten by a mosquito - no-one said they could bite
  • "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned."
  • "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."
  • "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels."

It's so ridiculously, yet painfully simple, that you're going to have a knock-down, hair-pulling, tongue-twisting, feet-stomping, baby-pouting, screaming fit (this happens all the time here), when you see that all you truly ever had to do to get heaven and earth to shake, rattle, and roll, was hold in your mind what you wanted, feel its emotional reality, and behave as if you already had it.
Just thought I'd warn you.

Room 101

... cause sometimes there is nothing wrong with a 2 minute man. You can get it all over and done with so I can get back to watching Private Practice.
btw... The pic came up when I googled Nasal technology for a pic to post. Made me giggle!

Little Funny

Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called in a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, 'I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you a check. Oh, by the way don't worry about my dog Spike. He won't bother you.''But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!''I MUST STRESS TO YOU: DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!'

When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking dog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling.

Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled,'Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!'To which the parrot replied,'Get him Spike!'

Our House - Week 14

Ciaran's room
Ducts for heating in, and the insulation batts.

My room - en suite to left, robe in middle, exit right.

We're at lock up stage, which I thought meant that the doors were locked, but while taking photos through the windows I fell through the laundry door, which was not locked and obviously not shut properly either!
So my other theory is that lock up means I need a short stay in a mental institution due to all the stress!

I treated myself to new shoes at the weekend. Put them on Monday for work… they felt very uncomfortable, so I took them off again. The right one wasn’t too bad, but the left one felt strange.

Thought I’d give them another go this morning.. did the straps extra tight and decided they may just need breaking in.

Got to work, and while talking to my boss happened to glance down and see a dark shadow peeking out of the side of my left shoe… no matching shadow on the right shoe. Then I realized…..

In the shop I had only tried on the right shoe. They had cardboard inserts in to support the front. I had taken the insert out at the shop.

The cardboard insert was still in the left shoe… and I had been wearing them like that, with discomfort, for 3 hours!
