. “That’s the big challenge of life—to chisel disappointment into wisdom so people respect you and you don’t annoy your friends with your whining.” ― Marc Maron .

. “I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you... Continue Reading →
Do you have a sense of what is fair and what is unfair? Do others agree with you about this? If they agree with you... is that fair? Let me put it another way, which may seem unfair as I may appear to be changing the rules or something like that... How does it feel... Continue Reading →
The other day I wrote a post about how blogs are people, how what you find on a blog reflects the person behind the blog who experiences all the ups, downs, and usual merry-go-round of being a human living life. I know that's obvious but sometimes the obvious gets obscured by... by what? By all... Continue Reading →

Just once... I'd like to answer one of the Daily Post's prompts properly... (maybe you wish I'd do that too... I don't know, I can't focus on your wishes when I'm too distracted by the flashing lights and blaring horns of mine) The me who wishes that isn't the me who writes my posts... so...

Before I launch into another long post where I talk all about myself, and verbally masturbate until I selfishly orgasm, I'd like to say... Thank you very much to the wonderful person who inspired this post, our conversations mean a lot to me... I'm not going to make you take the blogging stage, but if... Continue Reading →
. Ah... memories... What do you think people remember about you? Is it everything you'd hoped they'd remember about you or... is it everything you'd hoped they'd forget? People have a strange way of remembering what you want them to forget and of forgetting what you want them to remember... ...they feel the same way... Continue Reading →
Do you like being asked questions? Do you like answering questions? Depends on the questions, doesn't it? What if those questions are about getting to know yourself, and the answers you give reveal you to yourself in some way? . . You may have noticed that the last few posts on this blog have a...

I have spent countless (oops... that was almost a socially unacceptable typo - you figure it out) hours beating myself up for cringing sins, social faux-pas whiplash. You'd think a mortal would be more practical with their time, but this mortal is human, and humans only pretend to be practical with their time and everything... Continue Reading →
My levels of stupid are fairly healthy... compared to my levels of other things. In fact (yes, I used the word 'fact' on the internet cue the theme from Jaws...) being stupid is probably the healthiest aspect of me being me. I have a sweet spot for stupid me.

Since it's Capricorn season (not open season on Capricorn - which is all year round), I thought I'd have some fun (yes, Capricorns can do that thing known as having fun) and take some of the search terms in my blog's stats which people have asked their search engines to answer for them about Capricorn......

What a talented artist in both drawing and wit!
Yes, I looked at the illustration for and read my sign first, and what I read made my soft teddy bear center reach out to hug a stranger and utter the words “There, there, it’ll all be fine!”… but then my soft teddy bear remembered that his arms were lopped off (like the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail) and he has not spoken for so long due to needing to bite his tongue to stop himself from screaming in pain that he’s forgotten how and the sound of his own voice saying something… mushy (and probably factually incorrect, I mean how do I know if it’s all going to be fine, should I be misleading someone like that with possibly pointless hope?)… might scare him back into hiding behind that hard exterior.
No idea why my inner teddy bear is a ‘he’… he just is a he.
The other signs are equally humorously insightful, the drawings are brilliant… and the disclaimers are hilarious!
Brilliant blog and artist!

Yay! It’s here! Final part to this series Part 3 is here!
I think I’m in the homestretch of recovery. This has been the worst bout of flu/fever I’ve had since last year. Lots of mucus in the back of my throat still, keep hacking, coughing and spitting like an old man every few minutes. Sexy, I know.
But enough about my bodily fluids! I know ya’ll clicked on the link to see a breakdown on the last 4 signs, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces! If any of you belong to these, thank you for your patience. Your roasting awaits 😀

A post full of giant… chuckles, laughs and other fluffy things which make you ache in a good way!
The news presented in the way… I wish all news sites would do it, because frankly I’m fed up of clicking on an interesting READ THIS NOW type of news headline only to find the article is just a rehash of a rehash of a rehash of ‘humans know nothing but think they know everything and panic about it on a daily end of the world basis’.
This is a news a la Doctor Who! Most excellent blog!
Thank you for sharing.
A misspoken word.
A reluctant glance.
A horde of slobbering rabbits.
Thanks to my training and experience, and several highlighted newspaper clippings sent in by concerned readers, I have painstakingly pieced together what I, as a member of the conservative media, believe is undeniable evidence that rabbits are planning to take over the world.
By radiating themselves and producing offspring roughly the size of Volkswagen Beatles.

My post yesterday was rather serious, as I was in a deeply contemplative mood.

Pure Brilliant Genius!!!
A wonderful post by a lovely incredibly talented blogger with a beautiful soul!
She thinks she’s weird, maybe she is… I still can’t see it, but maybe because we’re a similar kind of weird and it seems normal and logical to be that way.
Please check out the bloggers whom she raps about (not me, you’re already checking me out and raising a cynical eyebrow)!
So I wrote a rap to name check some of my favourite bloggers as a massive thank you to you all. I have provided you with a SICK beat to listen to so that you can actually rap along with this. Please, ignore the name of the song, I do not want to see your genitals.
So go on, press play, and proceed:
There once was a girl, we’ll call her Jane
She set up a blog, and its content’s insane
But she met some people who’ve made it so easy
So she wrote this rap to rival Jay-Z
She wants these guys to know one thing
That she once had a weird crush on sting
And also, she loves you all
Ok…that’s two things
First there’s Ben, who’s been here since the start
His blog is bitter
But he has a heart
Then there’s Trent, who’s so…

She who laughs first turns embarrassment into a shared moment of fun, of ice-breaking joviality, of another fight won against perfectionism, of loosening the noose of seriousness, of just plain being human appreciation.
