Quotes du Jour

As I seem to be collecting more and more of these, it's only right that they should be given their own section of my strange little world.
"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in PINK. I believe that loving is the best calorie burner. I believe in French kissing. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles" - Audrey Hepburn
'"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not." - Yoda

'"People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do."- Isaac Asimov
'"There's plenty of people getting their insert banned word of choice here together and leading healthy lives these days. Someone has to be responsible for keeping alive the arts of drunkeness and debauchery. Some day in the future, little will be known of such ways. Let's make sure those that follow in the years to come look back at such behaviour and say: "What the insert banned word of choice here were these people up to?"'
- Anon
"To be nobody - but yourself - in a world that is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight" - e. e. cummings

A multi-coloured, bright pair of socks

Well I've just about got the hang of this GuideML lark now, and this picture here is to represent my love of all things stripey. Especially socks. And if it's sparkly and stripey, then so much the better. I think underneath this strange exterior lies a bit of a smiley - diva. Hobbies / obsessions include James Dean Bradfield (although not without the Gibson), Dave Grohl, Flea, blood, obscure scientific journals that nobody apart from me seems to read, shouting at doctors (cos let's face it, they deserve it), Tequila and *very* loud - preferably live - music (which my neighbours will attest to smiley - devil). I love cats and dogs equally but prefer horses to both, and despise both tea and coffee yet have a major caffeine addiction. I think that's all for now. Ye know too much...

and now for the science bit...

Through my job, this subject is dear to my heart. Yup, we're talking about Donating Blood. Did you know that at any one time, the National Blood Service only has enough blood in stock to meet demand for 10 days?. It's painless, quick and who knows, you might just make a difference to somebody's life. Of course, some people aren't allowed to donate blood. To find out if you're one of them, click here


I'll write something here when I can think of something suitably zen-like and profound. But I wouldn't go holding your breath. Random Stuff will probably appear when I've had a few smiley - ale's too many and feel like adding a few alcohol-fueled ramblings about the utter futility of it all. Or something.

... And here it is. I am as suprised as anyone to find myself one half of a marital unit. That's not to say that this one time party-loving, hell-raising, beer-drinking riot girl has turned into a cookie-baking stepford wife. Hell no. I've just been lucky enough to find a partner in crime smiley - loveblush who'll help me hide the bodies...

"I swear I'll never give in, I refuse" - Foo Fighters - 'The best of you'

A year and a half ago, I got diagnosed with a severe pre cancerous condition. Two operations and a painful procedure later, I'm still here goddammit. The above quote means a lot to me. Dave Grohl is my personal Jesus. Is someone getting the best of you?


"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure.
I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
—Marilyn Monroe
'By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying'
- Dorothy Parker
'Come on God, do I seem bulletproof?' - Red Hot Chili Peppers - 'Fortune Faded'
