Slightly inappropraite clothing part 1: Sequins are my prozac

I swear, nothing cheers me up quicker.

I wish there was a medical procedure
which would permanently change my skin for sequins.

Sadly my life dosnt feature many points in time where this dress could be worn.

Keeping up with the Jones

Resolution number 3: Learn stuff....


Here is my first attempt in many, many a year, to knit.
At first it was hard.
I kept ending up with more stitches then I started, I'm not sure, but I did.
It may not look like much now but I bet any day now it will become something amazing
like a jumper.

OR a perfectly anatomically correct representation of the human brain.

10 things that I will do this year that really I should have done last year

10 things that I solemnly swear to do this year
(although really I SHOULD have done 3 or more of these last year
but some how dues to time, circumstance, finance
or perhaps pure laziness I did not)

1. Write a post about 10 things you will do in 2011 -
well better late than never.

2. Which brings me nicely to my next point, STOP BEING LATE!

Seriously. It's like an addiction.

Learn to leave the house on time, stop flapping about and not being able to decide what to do with your hair, or getting changed entirely because you your current outfit does'nt go with the shoes you have to wear because it is raining.

It's unprofessional and damn annoying for you and everyone else so just stop it, ok?

And be more tidy. You only annoy yourself missy!

3. Learn a whole boat load of new things. For real this time. A third language is a good place to start. Or an instrument of some sort. You know you can, you have done it before!
Just dont put too much pressure on yourself and you will do it and then, voila!
(see, you have started already.)


4. Get a job. A really really lovely amazing job that you are good at and get to dress nicely for every day. Like a magicians assistant. Or become a magician! Add that to the list of things to learn - magic. Get really good and preform for people in vintage sequined dresses.


5. Fall in love. With a city. Not a person, because people come and go and change but places stay the same quite a lot and now is the perfect time to move on and get a new place which makes you happy.


6. Don't get stuck in rut. Don't allow yourself to be petty and lazy and self defeatist and unwilling to make allowances to people. Don't be too stubborn or narrow minded because you know those are things you hate in other because that's what you find totally unbearable about yourself. Be less careful. Or more careful. Be more impulsive and don't let the things that came before to stop you from pursuing things which could lie ahead.

Also maybe be less judgmental.

Well you could always be as judgmental but not so open about it.


7. Blog more. Try and maintain all three of them. Keep taking a photo a day, keep sharing you make up looks, keep writing your thoughts here. In fact keep doing them but do them more, and more frequently! And share MORE! Tell all those stories you bore your friends with here and maybe people will read that and surprise you, or maybe they wont, but at least you would have done it.


8. Visit America. Do it.
There is one lady who(m) you like who will be there and she deserves a bit of your time.


9. More glitter. Just as a general rule.

10. Stop talking to yourself in the third person.

It's a little pretentious and thoroughly annoying.

10 things which make being single better then being something else.

Relationships aye? Bit of a tricky thing those ones. So we all go through phases of being in them and not being in them and being in them but not wanting to be in them or being not in them and wanting to be in one. Ah love, you are a many splendored thing.

For example when you are in a relationship you get to do all sorts of great things, like going out to eat together or taking photos of yourselves looking in love (and uploading them onto social networking sites so others can be jealous) or watching films about love and thinking how lucky you are not to be alone or spending hours just staring into each others eyes or taking lovely sunset walks and throwing stones at the single people.

However for those of us who are currently not enjoying the many splendors love has to offer (but are instead feasting from the cornucopia of single person living) get to spend our time eating (alone), drinking (alone), feeding stray animals in attempts to not be alone and hiding below ground during day light hours so as to avoid the stones thrown by couples.


There are, of course, innumerous wonderful things about being "single". However I like a challenge so I went ahead and attempted to make a top 10....

1. Bed Clothes....I'm a hogger. Fact. And an unapologetic one at that. I'm half your weight, just pull the duvet back or man up.

2. No one to disprove it when I lie about why I am late for something.
Yes I am always late.
Yes I always have a excuse.
No there is no one to witness the freak hurricane which ripped through my flat and made me lose 40 minutes.

3: Watching really terrible shows: Yes ANTM, yes Glee, yes Jersey Shore, yes yes, yes.

4: High heels, as high as I like and no Napoleon complex to deal with.

5: Man flu. Nuff said.

6: Talking to myself is now truly to myself and no one can complain that I have been singing an off key version of "Total eclipse of the heart" for the past 4 days.

7: Wearing layers of the brightest lipstick known to mankind.

8: White girl dancing. Ok I did this when I wasn't single also but I find it more rewarding now.

9: Wandering around my house dressed like a "Grey Gardens" refugee.

10:The less people around you have around you, the less chance there is of one of them being a CIA planted killer robot.
That's just sound logic.
