From the Universe

It's working! Every day you're getting closer! Everything you've ever wanted is being pressed toward you. Everything is clicking. Don't let the illusions trick you. Don't let the events of today dampen your spirits. Things couldn't be any better than they now are. You couldn't have more reasons to celebrate. Now! Do it! The hardest work is done! Just show up, be present, open every door and let events unfold. Life is your stage. This is your parade. Together we can do anything.

    I love it when you're hot,
         The Universe

Room 101

Those long taggy things they put on your clothes these days.

Their reasoning is that it helps the clothes stay on the hanger in the store.
Fine, but they don't always work, so I still end up kicking the item under the rack cause I can't be assed picking it up.
Plus if I buy it I have to remember to cut them out and run the risk of cutting holes in my top, or I forget and end up walking around with what looks like a shoelace or ribbon protruding from my arm pit.

Oh, and I couldn't find a pic which illustrated my annoyance (causing me further annoyance) but when I googled clothes tags the above pic came up so thought I would add for your enjoyment!

What song always makes you happy?
Accidently in Love - usually the Counting Crows Version, and Crazy chick by Charlotte Church (I don't usually admit to even knowing that song in public, but it's great belting it out in the car on a long drive)

If your life were a movie, what actor/actress would play you?
I'd like to think that the latest Oscar winner Sandra Bullock would be able to do me justice, although it would be a few hours in make up every day to make her look dumpy and dowdy. :)

If you could make any fictional character come to life, which would it be?
I fell in love with Stuart Townsend's portrayal of Dorian Gray in League - the "dastardly" deviant making me weak at the knees (every girl loves a bad boy) however I imagine the character could be quite a troubled, tortured soul. 
I must have a think for tortured souls, as the other person that sprung to mind is Armand from the Vampire Chronicles.  Not so much because of the portrayals in the movie adaptations, but from the Anne Rice novels themselves.  The book about him touched me in a way no other book had.  His sordid past, and the tortures he endured, really made me "understand" him.  Who wouldn't want to live forever?

Cool things I found this week...

Signs You´re Hungover ...

- You´d rather have a pencil driven through your retina than be exposed to sunlight.
- Trying to gain control of the situation, you continue to tell your room to "Stay still."
- Looking at yourself in the mirror induces the same reaction as chugging a glass of fresh paint.
- You´re convinced that the chirping birds are Satan´s pets.
- You set aside an entire morning to spend some quality time with your toilet.
- You replaced the traditional praying on your knees with the more feasible praying in a fetal position.
- All day long your motto is, "Never again."
- You could purchase a new bike just by recycling the bottles around your bed.
- Your natural response to "Good morning," is "Shut up!"

From the Universe

Of all the things that matter, that really and truly matter, working more efficiently and getting more done is not among them.

      The Universe

P.S:  Quite accidentally, such an appreciation leads to greater efficiency and more productivity. Not that that really matters.

News According to BHB

This just makes a joke out of the entire diet and lifestyle industry.  I have always said that WeightWatchers was a BIG con. (I proved so on this very blog years ago when I noticed that Weightwatchers "diet" sticky date pudding had more calories than a Sarah Lee one) - I changed their logo for them. (sorry, not a very good "photoshopper" am I!) or there is always a change of name that could go with it -

'Baby Gaga', 8, causes outrage with dance
I don't see any "outrageous" or "provocative" dancing.  What is more outrageous is that her mother thought her daughter was "talented" enough to go on a talent show.  The kid can't sing, and it's hardly dancing! She's prancing round like she's in her bedroom!  She should be condemned for letting the poor kid embarrass herself like that in public!

Botched surgery gave woman 'four breasts'
Would have thought her husband would have been ecstatic to have a woman with 4 breasts - double the toys, double the fun!

Miami B(it)(ea)ch

I absolutely detest this song.  It comes on the radio and I change channels. 
I did however find this very cheesy you tube clip some gangly teenagers did to it.  Watch it with the sound down if you hate the song as much as I do

Quirky Tuesday

I can't eat my cereal with a spoon like this:

It has to be like this:
so there!

Is there anything you're superstitious about?
I do keep 3 chinese coins in my purse.  In fact this is my second lot, as one of the first ones broke.  My friend suggested I take them out as that was the reason I was "broke".  When they weren't there at all I never had money.  Ever since I got new ones my purse has always had money in it.

If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be?
You're supposed to say World Peace, End to World Hunger and Suffering, then the third one is for something silly like Eternal Youth, right?
Thing is, you don't need Genies, as the Universe grants your every wish, as long as you help out by taking steps in the right direction.  Just see my Friday posts as proof!

What is your motto in life?
Life is far too precious for half-ways, maybes and De-caf!
