No Means No

There's always someone in whatever environment you're in that seems to think their way is the only way. Seeing as how the world has such a vast population I never quite understand how these people come to think that their ideas are better or more valid than everyone elses. The world isn't black and white, it's full of colours. Wonderful colours, but every so often someone comes along and tries to dim their brightness.

Bad day. Stressful day. I don't stress often, I'm a happy-go-lucky kinda girl.... but that woman.... my god, that woman.... one day I will be able to tell her that, suprise suprise, she isn't perfect, and I'm sure the shock will send her world tumbling around her, and I'll be like "....It wasn't me, I don't care enough about you to be so vindictive, and you know what, Netty? I know you didn't know this, but no means fucking no!"

Anyone for an Hour?

Yep, I know, the clocks have gone forward. Light mornings, longer days, warmer weather.... lovely! But the amount of people who told me they wanted the hour back simply because they had less sleep that night.... I don't mind sacrificing an hour of sleep for warmer weather, no sir.

I'm also closer to my holiday in Portugal........ ahhhh excitement!

I Know What Book You Read Last Summer

I'm reading a book at the moment called 'My Sister's Keeper' by Jodie Picoult. It's a heart gripping book that makes you appreciate your life that probably hasn't had such hardships.

I picked the book up this morning and noticed something stuck to the back of the front cover. It mentioned a website www.bookcrossing.com, the sticker in the book gives you a code that you can type in a box and find out who has read the book before you and where the book has been. I found that this book had been in a city an hour away from me.

I love it! It's a fantastic idea!

There's nothing quite like the fright you feel when walking past a toy in a shop and it suddenly goes off.

I was in a charity shop with Auntie Ria minding my own business when MWAHAHAHAHAH!

What the?! I think it's fair to say I jumped a mile.... actually it's fair to say I grabbed Maria's arm, it's also fair to say she laughed her arse right off and won't let me live it down....

It's my little sister's 20th birthday tomorrow. TWENTY! How. Is. This. Happening?

Nose Bleed Memory

I blew my nose this morning when I got out of bed. The season is changing so it's a little bit runny. Attractive.

Anyway, I blew too hard and started a little nose bleed, I stood for ten minutes hovering over the bathroom sink, and while I was there I remembered something from when I was younger.

A girl I used to play with named Emma had severe epilepsy, so her mum was quite over protective and was always taking Emma to the doctors. One day Emma told me that she kept getting nose bleeds so would have to stop playing at 3pm so she could go see the doctor.

After dinner when I knew she'd be back, I went to call for her and asked how the appointment went, Emma said it was fine and tried to hurry me out the door, but suddenly from another room Emma's mum shouted "The doctor said she wouldn't get nose bleeds if she just stopped picking her nose!"

Haha! I had completely forgotten this happened until I was hovering over the sink. It's funny what things we have in our memory bank, and what things trigger them to surface.

Deaf Ignoranus!

How much of an annoyance is it when someone asks you a question and you answer them, but they ask you the same question five minutes later because they haven't heard you?

"Do you know where my keys are?"

"They're on the stairs."

Five minutes later.

"Hello ignoranus! I asked you if you know where my keys are, I know you heard me."

"I know you know I heard you, but I also know that you don't know that I answered you. Arsehole!"

Lol! No way was I telling her where her keys were after that. Fend for yourself, and remember where you put them next time, bitch!

Boundries That Aren't There

I often wonder if I was more impulsive would I be more content. I often feel constrained by my own boundries, But I have no idea why I put these boundries up in the first place, they hinder my progress. I describe it as being cautious, but I wouldn't say I was afriad. There's nothing to be frightened of.... except cockroaches and Ted Bundy.

I used to think having fancy things was a testemant to my success in life, but when I look at the things I've got I see wood and metal.... if I think of the things I've done I have memories and warm feelings that no amount of money can buy. I guess that's a valuable lesson right there.

I'm starting to see things differently simply because I'm breaking down my own boundries, I'm making a concious effort to appreciate things that, as adults, people seem to lose sight of. So when I have a stressful day at work, it doesn't really affect me like it should/would have, because, after all, it's just a job, and at the end of every day, I'll still get to see the sun setting.

This place isn't the only place on earth.

My job isn't the only job on earth.

Because I know this, my possibilities are endless.

If Only it Was Possible

Sunday the 15th of March 2009 never happened for me! Oh my goodness.

I often pride myself on having a strong will, but why oh why oh why do I fold like a cheap deck chair when I go out with friends and drink alcohol? The results are often near fatel the next day. I swear yesterday the grim reaper was standing at the end of my bed tut tutting at me and looking at his watch.... no really, I felt like death was taunting me.

Alright, ok, I know, I'm being dramatic. But for the love of chocolate why can't I just never drink again? I know that when I go out I will drink evil alcohol, so I think the only promise I can actually make to myself, and actually stick to, is to never allow myself to get that drunk from this moment on.

So this is me, promising myself to never be that drunk again.... I think.

( For the Record: I didn't do anything stupid while drunk, I just felt a wee bit unwell the next day)

But it's Sunny Outside

I've been told that I'm behaving like a camel. rather than doing things that I want to do I'm simply storing them in my hump. I agreed with the person telling me this because I know there are many many things I want to achieve, so I bought a guitar. It's one less thing in my hump and I've always had the desire to be able to play.

It's customery to name ones guitar, but right now I want to name it 'The Fucking Waste of Money' because I can't get the hang of it. lol. I'm sure in a few months when I've learnt some songs I'll think of a suitable name.

So the grass cutters were out today, and I almost wet myself a little with excitement. I walked to the bus stop and felt a little giddy at the thought of warmer weather. Yippie! But when I got to work my colleague was in a bad mood. I hate when other people are grumpy because it makes me feel forced... like I'm being forced to feel the way that they do.... like just because they don't feel good, nobody else can feel good either. Like, I said like alot just then. Ha!

I asked her why she was in a bad mood, and she had no idea. NO IDEA! She was bringing this big black cloud into the room yet she had no idea why? So I was like, "but it's sunny outside...." Because how can anyone be in a bad mood when it's sunny outside?

Careful Where You Stand

I heard this quote from... erm... it was either Tegan or Sara, I have no idea which, but I liked it and am therefore stealing it.

"I've come to realise that if you're standing in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could be mistaken for a prostitute."

I'm quoting this because there's a street where I live, I mean, I don't live on the street because it's for crack addicts and such, but it's a street in my city and it's also where the prostitues earn their spendable paper, but I was waiting for my friend on the corner of this street once, and I swear to god, I thought to myself.... I hope I'm not mistaken for a prostitue....

Train of Random Thoughts

I keep thinking all kinds of random crap that is really just, well.... odd! More than a few times today I have found myself wondering what the hell I just thought.... I mean, did I really just think what I thought I did? Anyway, here's a few of my wierd inner ramblings that I can remember.

I don't know why I'm eating this carrot, I only like carrots when they're tinned in sugar water, so why did I think this non tinned sugar water carrot would be ok for me to eat?

If I threw this ball of paper at Daniel what would he do?

I think I need new shoes.

Her forehead is huge!

That bitch is on her period for sure!!

Does my nose look big from the side?


She bites her nails.

A scarf indoors is going overboard.

Those windows need cleaning.

I'll pee at half past two.

I should probably be paying attention to what she's saying....

Dr. McDreamy is Dr. McSleepy for me because I'm a big fat lesbian!

I'm glad I'm not from Birmingham.

I can't get fat, I've tried.

Sainsburys isn't the only supermarket you can pick your nose in.

This is only half of the ramdom crap that went through my mind today. Goodness, I really do think I'm losing it!

In other news. Macrina the Incredible came to work with us today. She went to spain for the weekend last week and brought me back a CD of my favourite Spanish Band 'La Quinta Estacion'. She also bought me a CD of a band she thought I'd like, and I honestly had no idea what to say.... how sweet! Le dreamy sigh....

Auntie Ria

My auntie Maria is certainly determined to live life to the full after her ordeal two years ago. Last week she decided to run a pub, so her and her partner, Chris, have been true to their word.... and got one! I wouldn't say it was the best looking pub in the world, but it's close to their home which means they can still have their family life, which is good because family is certainly the number one priority to Maria.

Considering I talk about her so much, here she is.

I don't know who that is in the picture with her *whistles*....

Our family had a huge get together, and considering I have 8 aunties and uncles, and 21 cousins, when I say 'huge' I really mean it. Our family managed to fill the pub. We danced, sang karaoke and partied like it was well past 1999. Because we're such a large family, occasions where we're all in the same place at the same time are rare, so when they do happen, we make the most of them. Tonight was fantastic, and after Maria's ordeal, we were closer than ever. It's a nice feeling, and we were all there to wish Maria and Chris well in their new venture. We certainly boosted the takings with the amount of alcohol we drank.

Fat Day!

At least once a week I have what I like to call a 'Fat Day'. This means if I see it I'll eat it, no questions asked.... oh wait, one question; is there meat in it? Otherwise, I'm good.

I like to pride myself on the fact that I eat well. I generally have my five a day, I like trying new food (the fried baby squid was a mistake though) and I enjoy cooking things from scratch, but sometimes.... I just wanna eat shit!

I also pride myself on being active. Don't get me wrong I go online every day, but I like to be outside gardening, jogging, socialising etc. But sometimes.... I just don't wanna do shit!

Today I'm having a Fat Day. I'm eating shit and not doing shit and it's great!

87p Lettuce

I've just been shopping in ASDA and the woman at the till informed me that carrier bags were no longer being provided. I didn't mind because I always bring with me the bags that you can fold and put in your handbag, but the woman behind me was outraged. She went on a rant explaining that seeing as she was probably overcharged for her lettuce but has no way of knowing, she would at least like a bloody bag to carry the lettuce home in. I agreed. But then the woman at the till explained that ASDA has stopped providing plastic bags to help the environment. I agreed with that aswel.

Hoooooooowever.... I'm very environmentally friendly. I recycle, I buy recycled loo roll for heavens sake, but I think I mostly agree with the customer here. If I'm paying 87p for a lettuce that's worth 57p then I'd like to be offered a means of getting the lettuce home safely! There could have been a better way to execute this, rather than one day ASDA offering you a bag and the next day making you pay for one, they should have given out free re-usable bags to ease in the change, because what is going to happen will be a disaster. Every day staff at ASDA will face angry customers, and rightly so. Because as such a big supermarket chain, ASDA also stands to save a lot of money by no longer having to make bags. The extra 30p that I'm being charged for my lettuce would have covered the costs for the bags ASDA would have provided me with.

I went on a rant, but I suppose what I'm trying to say is; If we don't get a bag for our lettuce, shouldn't it cost us less?

Toilet paper (roll) Theory

I once read a secret on Post Secret that rang true for me. It said; "I suspect that I use more toilet paper than your avarage person, but I have no way of knowing." I too suspect that I use more toilet paper than everyone else, but there isn't a survey titled 'How Much Bog Roll do You Use Per Visit to the Lavatory?'

It's actually 'toilet roll' where I'm from. Tomayto.... tomarto.

So I'm sitting here eating Skittles. Well, trying to eat Skittles because I actually have to poor them all out of the bag, put them into groups of colours then eat the colour with the least skittles. I know, I know. I have a problem....

By the way, the red Skittles are to be eaten first, then the yellow, then the brown, then the orange then the green. Phew. That's a lot of Skittles.
