regardless, i am going to try. see what happens. in the process, i will remember two pieces of advice. one from siamese saffron who, among other wise words, commented blogging was 'cheaper than therapy' (and god knows there's a hell of a lot of things i'd rather spend my money on than some guy who nods his head while i cry. although i am still going to pay some guy to nod his head while i cry. see how it pans out). the other (piece of advice - in case you'd forgotten after my bracketed super tangent) comes from some random blogger who says 'blog like nobody's reading'. i am not blind to the fact that is hugely cheesy and a complete rip-off of the old 'dance like nobody's watching' phrase, but if it helps, i'll take it.
first though, my disclaimer. this decision may lead to epic failure. i mean, i am working on the new and improved** me with gusto. you should see me go. and i promise i will stop at nothing to achieve what i set out to. and, for the first time (in this context), i believe in myself so yay for confidence. but in terms of using my blog to aid this process, i am not sure it's going to work for me. time will tell.
before i collect my prize for world's longest introduction, i will finish this entry which, until i got my ramble on, was going to be brief. it was also going to be a very non-personal start to my personal promise. one from two. deal with it.
so, there's this game my wonderful, fantastic, admirable, loyal, hilarious (all the good things, none of the bad) friend clare told me about. it's done the facebook rounds although i never saw it. you're meant to google search the word 'unfortunately' followed by your first name.
i always find the time to do this kind of crap. i am not ashamed.
the first couple of returns just linked to blog entries, like this one, of kates playing the same game. skipping those, my results were:
- Unfortunately, Kate's globe-trotting is restricted because she starves when abroad, and
- Unfortunately, Kate carries ALL OF HER WEIGHT in her ass.
- Thankfully, Kate has better luck with men in the real world, and
- Thankfully, Kate was incredibly patient.
now, for reasons i will not disclose yet (or possibly ever) that resonated a freaking lot with me. patience is a virtue. thank you athena destiny starwoman.*to be explained in a future entry.
**new and improved. contradiction. new or improved. can't be both. i'm going for improved. i like some parts of me. i'll keep them.
