Month: September 2010

I just have to share the most amazing woman’s blog I’ve come across. A mother of nine (NINE! KAPOW!), humanitarian and activist who…and this is the clincher for me…totally walks the walk. Sadly I see I’ve found her site just as she’s given up blogging for the interim, but no matter. There seems to be plenty already there for me to trawl through in the meantime. Honestly, I was so moved after just 5 minutes on her site that I emailed her, to tell her how inspired I’d been. I shared with her how the hubbster and I have long…

Most people remember baseball legend Babe Ruth as one of the great hitters of all time, with a career record of 714 home runs. However, he was also a master of the strike out. That’s because he always swung for home runs, not singles or doubles. Ruth either succeeded big or failed spectacularly. No one wants to make mistakes or fail. But if you try too hard to avoid failure, you’ll also avoid success. It has been said that to increase your success rate, you should aim to make more mistakes. In other words, take more chances and you’ll succeed…

You know, dress up in celeb inspired outfits, spew forth ridiculous improvised rants with the starlet of choice, and instead of taking the whole thing too seriously,…

It’s been an extremely intense few days. Sozzoms! Just FYI, when I’m absent from cyberspace for more than a few days it’s usually either cos: 1) I’m away. 2) I’m experiencing technical problems. 3) I’m feeling extra depressed. Or combinations of the above. Notably on the third point, just seeing as I’m in a rather sharing mood these days in blog-land (lucky, lucky YOU! Here, let me hand you a shot-glass through the screen and let us share a tequila, you and I…), know that I don’t tend to ruminate that much about the crap parts of my life here,…

P.S. I know the screen-cap for this is a SHOCKER! Heehee, but am keeping it up there as a challenge to my vanity. I’m not wearing make-up either. Oh, and on that note, there’s a great blog post about that very topic over at my uberly fabulous friend Rachel Hills’ blog. P.P.S. I’m running a bit of a silly, hmmmm, shall we say “experiment” over at my facebook comedy page whereby you can submit a suggestion for the title of a song. I will choose one that particularly inspires me above all – the song title to rule all song…
