Protected: A Little Something About Dirty Old Men

We all love and use social media.  The world would be a much more boring place without it.  And, we all use it in different ways.  There are the single moms, the geeks, the new-age business folk.  The list goes on and on.  The unfortunate thing, however, is that it also includes the old dirty man. I presume it’s always been hard being an attractive girl.  You get hit on by all the drunk men at the club.  Boys objectify you and search for photos of you nude online.  You’re forced to wear those horrendous breast holders.  You get...

A Little Bit About Man-Flu

Man-flu, put simply, is a killer.  Unless you’re male, and have had some form of deadly disease, you won’t be able to comprehend what I’m talking about.  It comes in many forms but all symptoms are the same.  They may include, but are not limited to, moaning, whinging, and whining.  There are literally millions of symptoms that go along with man-flu, and to list them al would be pointless and time consuming.   Just as there are many symptoms, there are many causes.  It can be down to a simple cold, a broken leg or even haemorrhoids.  Mine, was...

A Little Something About Movember

It’s that time of the year again to look like an idiot for charity.  While TachTober is unofficial, Movember is the month of celebration.  Those of you that know me, now I’m big supporter of CANSA. Each each year, I spray my head weird colours (cos it’s already shaved) And I always wear my support on my wrist.  And this will be no exception. I’m not very good with the upper lip thing, but it’s for charity, so I’m going to give it a go. And if you are going to go ahead and help, go to the Movember...

A Little Bit About Getting Along

As I’m sure you know by now that the 2010 SA Blog Awards are done and dusted.  And I’m sure you also know that there was enough controversy to make the ANC proud.  First, there was the weird way it was initially launched.  Some people had complained that they only found out about it very late.  Personally, I don’t see any other way it couldn’t been done.  Secondly, there was the nomination and voting processes where there were some bugs.  Then, there were judges (possible award winners that didn’t enter) that were dropped at the last second and left...

A Little Something About Happiness

It’s been a long time since I blogged.  And the birthday post doesn’t count.  I mean really blogged.  About raw honesty again.  About how upset this has made me, or how angry that did.  But if I am being honest, it’s because I’m happy. People are ruled by emotion.  They’re driven by anger, intimidation and sadness, but also by happiness, confidence and lust.  ?It’s what keeps us fresh and worth the talk and company.  Without the emotion you’re just a hairy ball of nothingness.  I, most certainly, write best in the throws of emotions.  It comes out quite clearly in the posts I compose and each post will centre around those themes that are automatically included.  For me, this seems to be much easier with the negative emotions, and now I sit with happiness and I’m seriously struggling. Happiness is the second hardest topic for me to blog about only preceded by sex.  I can write maybe one post about it before it becomes repetitive.  And let’s be honest, unhappy people don’t like to read about happy people. Yet, they can always relate to the morbid and melancholy.  And despite this, happiness is the one thing man strives for.  And so, that’s the main reason why I haven’t blogged. Happiness has taken me.  That coupled with work and work and work, and new things and liking sleep.  It’s all come...
