Boring Blogging


I don't know if they're a hit in the US or not, but the lead singer of the band 'The Ordinary Boys' is a celebrity here in the UK. He did 'Celebrity Big Brother' on TV and now he's really well known. Anyway, his picture is all over magazines & the tabloids and every time I see his face, I feel like I know him (kind of like a different lead singer of a famous British boy band who looks very much like my first love - his photo is EVERYWHERE and every time I see him - I feel like I should wave because that's what you do when you know each other intimately).
I digress...the lead singer of the Ordinary Boys (his name is Preston) - for the longest time, I've felt like know him, but haven't been able to place where I know him from. Then, it hit me - he looks a lot like a Canadian I met years ago on a business trip (and during another trip, spent a drunken - yet highly enjoyable evening with). Mystery solved.
This morning, I saw a link to their web site so, I thought I'd take a closer look to see if he actually does look like my favorite Canadian. I spent the following 30 minutes reading The Diary section of the site. It wasn't like they talked about anything of substance, but it was interesting all the same and found myself reading on. It wasn't what he talked about, but how he expressed himself that made it interesting. I soon realized this blog of mine - it's really F*@king boring and I wish I had something to say that would actually make someone linger longer than expected.
Maybe it's the colder weather making me feel like sh*t (arthritis) but I've been feeling pretty uninspired lately, so if anyone has any good blogging topics - feel free to shoot me an email. Maybe once I start writing on a regular basis again - my entries may start getting a bit more interesting.

Top 20 Lists

Recently, a magazine here in the UK issued their list of their Top 100 women in show business. This sparked conversation between Wayne and I and one rainy weekend when we had nothing to do, we compiled our own Top 20 lists. The rules were we had to judge on looks alone (not their physique) and only one token model was allowed.
For fun, I thought I'd add our lists here for you to view and enjoy. Maybe it will even spark conversation between you and a friend or loved one.
Wayne and I actually had a really good time creating our lists together - judging each other's taste in the opposite sex and laughing over how long it took for us to prioritize our selections. We still change the order every time we look at it! (although our top five have remained the same)
Enjoy and feel free to comment!

Kicked the habit with an e-cigarette

I quit smoking when I moved to the UK, mainly because I promised my husband I would.  I did it for him, but not because I wanted to.  I enjoyed smoking.  I missed it, but quit successfully for many years until I went through a stressful time and started again.  My relapse lasted over a year.  The whole time, I was ashamed of myself.  I hated the smell.  I hated how I felt, I hated the health risks and I hated my lack of willpower.
     I've known a few people who have tried e-cigarettes.  I was a skeptic.  I thought it was going from one habit to another.  The people I knew that tried it, always had it and were constantly sucking on it.  It seemed to me they were more addicted to it then they were cigarettes.  I don't know any smokers that constantly had a cigarette in their hand.
     Then in January, I saw a piece about it on the BBC News.  I watched with interest thinking they were going to say that they have found it to be harmful.  What they said was quite the opposite.…

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after o…
