Judge on what we say.

I've been sitting on the tube all morning, watching people getting more and more irate on Twitter about a radio discussion where the words "rape and "skirt length" were mentioned in the same sentence.

Now, I could get angry and shouty, (it has been known) instead I thought I would just write this down. (It's my blog, I can do that)

Don't look at what I'm wearing,
Don't see make up on my face.
Don't judge me on my skirt length,
Or the time and the place.

Listen to my voice,
Hear me tell you go.
Understand, we ask of you,
No, means no.

Summer fashion? Get stuffed.

Take a quick look out of the window. Go on. (I'm not standing out there, I promise.)

Done it? Looks chilly doesn't it? (I deleted my first observation that it was fucking freezing, I must admit)

I think we will all agree it is cold at least.

So why the HELL are all the stores now bringing out their Spring/Summer ranges NOW?

Yesterday, I went to a shopping centre, (Doing a passable impression of a Yeti may I add) and my eyes were assaulted with neon colours, short sleeves and impossibly short skirts. (Not even in August, New Look, not even in August)

It is January!!!!!!!

Give me over-sized jumpers, thermal knickers and a coat that could double as a duvet. We don't need wispy fabrics and sheer tights yet, (I don't shave my legs until May) we want warmth and comfort.

It always makes me wonder whether this sales tactic is part of the reason why some companies struggle. It is the equivalent of trying to sell ice to an eskimo. (I feel like a bloody eskimo at the moment)

Clothing companies, there is enough time in the year for me to worry about fitting into my summer gear, indulge me a bit. Why not let me buy jumpers in January and sell me bikinis in July (ha ha ha ha Bikini? Joker)

Instead of the other way around as you are doing at the moment.

What do you think? Are clothing companies missing out on our money by not selling us clothing we actually want? or am I just being over-sensitive about the fact I'm never going to fit in a bikini?

Let me know (Break it to me gently)

Horsing around

If ever there was a good reason to put down the burgers in January, this would be it.

Horse DNA? In burgers?

What scares me most is that they aren't saying horsemeat, it's just the DNA!! (I'm slightly concerned now that they have disgruntled horses working in the burger factory who are masturbating over the burgers for shit and giggles)

We've heard all the jokes now, about the burgers giving you the trots, someone got ill, but now they are stable and it is a pun lovers dream, if not a burger lovers like myself.

But did ANYONE out there, honestly know what was in their burger in the first place?

I'm going to stand up now and say, it doesn't bother me if my burger is partly minced up Shergar. It tastes good. For some people it just means they can't feel superior to the French anymore for not eating horsemeat. Never mind.

We eat cows, pigs, rabbits, squirrel and all sorts anyway. So why is everyone so upset?

Will YOU carry on eating burgers, now you know there is a chance it contains parts of the loser at the 3.20 at Kempton?

Let me know.

Positive Mental Attitude

We all have bad days, and god knows I've had my share lately.

But you know what?

There has to come a time in our lives when we drink down a big, tall, glass of positivity and think, this WILL get better, I BELIEVE things will go my way,

I may not be gulping from that glass just yet, but I am taking a sip, and THAT, my friends, is positivity at its finest.

First rant of the year

What? You expected me to ease you in gently? Bless you, you're pretty.

So this is the deal, I've had a little time off recently and while I have been chilling out with my head buried in Christmas pudding, (Fat girl CRACK, I tell you) up has popped a couple of blogging GURUS telling us how to run our blogs.

Now I am ALLLLLLLL for bloggers being so far up their own arse that they just fill their blogs with instructions on how to have a blog as successful as theirs. Honestly, every time I see one it just fills my cold, dead heart with (misery, anger) joy.

Because, what there isn't enough of in this world, is people telling us how to do something we are already doing.

Blogging isn't an ART, sorry, it isn't. Anyone can write crap on a page and if it appeals to someone, they will read it, and possibly come back for more (No, not you, you guys are special)

The "secret"" to blogging?

There isn't one.

If you write it, they will come.

People can only tell you what works for THEM. Not what works for you,

And if you take on board what every blog "guru" tells you to do, all you become is a weak imitation of them.

Right now? You are the real deal. Be original, be unique, be YOU.

Advice is fine, but who wants to be TOLD what to do?

Not me. How about you?

Let me know.

Happy New Year

So yes, I am a little late, what can I say apart from, who wants to be first to the party?

I am here now so let's all just chill out a bit and look forward to the year ahead.

There will be highs, (legal ones, obvs) and there will be lows. It is basically 2012 repackaged with the words ""New and Improved" on the label. Nothing has changed except the year on the front of our diaries (and our slippers, because we got new ones for christmas)

So we are going to make the most of it. Embrace the changes and welcome in 2013 and whatever shit it can throw at us.

I'm going to be here, I hope you can be too.

Happy New Year to you all.

Let's do this,
