Things I learned this week

  • Don't wear Boucle to a Rodeo - especially if you're sitting on straw strewn lawn.
  • You can Lead a Horse to water, but you can't make it run round a barrel if he don't want to!
  • Money is the root of all evil

From the Universe

The trick is learning to maintain an unwavering focus upon your desired end result, your completed dream, the "finish line," without insisting upon, or even contemplating, its means of attainment, no matter how logical, obvious, or tempting it may seem.

News According to BHB

Rockefeller Millionaire sightings
There have been a number of reported sightings of Millionaire Herman Rockefellar including at the Gordon General Store where he allegedly bought food.
I saw him down the chip shop, with Elvis and a guy that claimed he was Michael Jackson.  Didn't believe him though - he was too white.

Abstinence Debate
Tony Abbott's advice to his daughters - not to "give (their virginity) to someone lightly" - prompted a sharp retort from Labor. Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop has accused the federal government of double standards over its attack on her leader's views about sex before marriage.
If this came at me, I would abstain too!

Rafael Nadal will undergo further medical scans in Spain to determine the severity of the knee injury that forced him out of the Australian Open.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think a man of his ego would fake an injury just because he was losing, however, I bet there are a few thoughts crossing many minds - would he have forfeited if he had been winning?
C'mon Murray - you thought it too... maybe just a little.... huh?

Room 101


Everytime I hear that word, it makes me sing this song:

However, it does not evoke good times or make me happy.  Thanks to 1 fateful night of teaching my brother in law the art of "Lick, drink, Suck" which he kept getting wrong. So I had to show him again.  He got it wrong again, and so the student and teacher got progressively through the bottle.
Next day I spewed nothing but salt.
I was ill for 3 days.
Put Tequila in room 101 - PLEASE!

Manic Monday

If you could only have one section of the bookstore to visit, which section would it be?
I could cheat, and just say the fiction section - but if I have to be more specific, then I would say the horror section.  If I had to pick non-fiction section it would be craft!

If you could only subscribe to one publication for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Top Gear Magazine!  It's almost as hilarious as the show!

What activity always makes you lose track of time?
Making my jewellery - time flies.  Also Facebook!

Yes, you can have whatever you want. ANYTHING you can imagine.
You name it. It's yours. Done deal. Zip, zap. Bing, bong. Ka-pow.
Oh, but you have to go get it. K?

P:S: We're a team. I'll do the hard parts, but you gotta get us started. Schwing, baby.

Room 101

Pregnant women who smoke.

I don't get on soap boxes very often, and I prefer not to force my opinions on to other people.  I detest smoking, but if you wanna go and kill yourself slowly, one cancer stick at a time, and stink while doing it, then go right on ahead.
What makes me sick to my stomach though, is women who still smoke when they are pregnant. We all know that this can seriously harm your baby.  Is this not child abuse at it's earliest form?  At the very least it must be neglect, but surely this must show a complete lack of care or concern for your unborn child.  If you can't show a bit of willpower for the sake of your chidren, then don't pro-create.

Quirky Tuesday

I am bored, so so very bored, and lacking in inspiration for quirky posts.
I googled Boredom at work: here's my top picks!

The Top 5 tips for everything: How to Relieve Boredom - includes a recommendation to blog when you're bored, and a wonderful fun idea of Randomail!

E-How - includes Office Pilates, and a few great jokes to prank your co-workers with.

If you're REALLY desperate, try Area 51 - but beware, you may get institutionalised for this type of behaviour.  My favourite:  "Put your head in a candy floss machine...see what happens.!"

Monday Meme

Rather than copy other people's questions I found some of my own.  I found these "Icebreakers" on an internet dating site (please don't ask why I was on there!) and thought it only fair that I answer the questions myself.

What's the best dream you've ever had?
Don't remember many of my dreams.  At one point I was writing them down as soon as I woke up, and was writing them on a separate blog, but it got too hard and took too long to post.  I do remember a rather cosy warm and fuzzy one involving myself and Robbie Williams being romantically involved while working on a farm. Think we'll leave that one there :)

What last made you laugh?
My boy this morning.  Complained that he did not have enough vegemite on his toast.  I said "put more on, you moron" and then couldn't stop laughing at how hilarious I was!

Do you have tattoos? Why or why not?
I have a small tribal flower design on my back.  Had it for about 8 years now and I still love it!  Thinking about having a dragon next, with the tail wrapping round the existing flower... much bigger project and not sure I'm up to it

Cool Things I found this week

In continuation of Thursdays post... check out this site, detailing embarrassing FB posts by your family

This is on Blogs of Note and is now one of my favourite reads.

I thought that a Meme was just a regular Q&A, theme or inspiration that a group of people got involved in (like the ones that I sometimes do) However it's much more like a blogging "in thing", or it seems to be anything that goes viral.  This site is very enlightening!

Things I Learned this week

  • Taxation is meant to be unexplainable… that way the Government can take what they like and you can’t argue
  • It all goes downhill when you hit 35 (so I got 5 months!)
  • Try to remember everyone you have added on FB, so you know who not to bitch about
  • Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you

Something that occurred to me.... should it be "Things I learned" or "Things I Learnt"?  Hmmmmmmm

From the Universe

It only seems like others have it all figured out; that their challenges are simpler, their friends are jollier, and their grass is greener. But, you should hear how they admire you.

The pitfalls of Facebook

  • You can't bitch about your "friends" without them finding out
  • Some people "share" too much
  • It tells your employer that you were on FB instead of working

Room 101

"Street Type"

I know I have put bad Grammar in here before, but this is kind of different.  I'm sure they go to school, and I assume they are taught the principles of good English, but yet they think it's really "cool" to type how they talk. 

Example is a question I got from one of those naff home made Quiz Creators on FB:

how long wud u last
  1. not very long..u dump cuz u see him with other girls
  2. couple months cuz he needs space
  3. u last more than half a year cause ur perfect

any spell check worth it's javascript would have been SCREAMing at all the mispellings, made up words, none use of capital letters and not one punctuation mark in sight! (the numbers I put in when reformatting)
... Ok, actually there is 2 "full stops in there, used incorrectly as a pause and with no space following)

Quirky Tuesday

I google a lot... mostly for info, research and for photos that go with my posts, and I love it when I come up with interesting pics completely off topic.

This photo came up on a search for "Lake Walk"

Obviously I was "intrigued" enough to click (my inner 12 yr old giggling), and I discovered this site.

My favourite activity:
Interclub sports: A day of fun activities with other clubs invited. This has included blind tent erecting (!!!!), various complicated sports with balloons held between the legs or passing balls without touching them with your hands, you probably get the picture here, undignified but fun.

Oh, and another favourite, this time a quote from the site:
  "...a public reserve near to the club grounds at Sutton, nobody seems to mind a few naked ramblers there."

Manic Monday

What did you get in trouble for the most when you were a kid?
Can't remember being told off as a little kid, but as a teenager it was for staying out late, or saying that I was a friends place when I was going out with boys instead! (Still happens!!!)

Which is your wish that is not yet fulfilled?
True Love that lasts
If you have to choose a movie title for your life story, what would that be?
What first came to mind was "Giving Her All", however it probably should be something witty and off wall, like a "Ya Ya Sisterhood" or "Green Tomatos" type title. How about "Everything is great, Thanks for asking"

From the Universe

I understand, that you must wonder, sometimes to the point of bewilderment, at what you're truly capable of doing. Yet, therein lies the "problem," because living the life of your dreams is far more about what I'm capable of doing.

P.s: All I need from you is a vision, followed by an unending march of little, tiny baby steps in its direction.

Room 101

Gossip Columnists

I'm tired of hearing about Tiger Woods. I couldn't give a crap how many women he had his 5iron in.
I don't care that Angelina ripped Brads shirt in an argument. They can afford to buy him a new one.
and the less said about Paris Hilton the better.
I would like to hear about REAL news, about heroic "ordinary" people who should be recognised for their gallant, brave deeds or their long but tireless struggles to make this world a better place.  I don't wanna hear about bimbos that are only famous because they let their boyfriends tape their sex acts.
