Advice in Strange Places

It’s no secret that I love to watch bad TV, Dance Moms, Cheer Perfection, Amish Mafia, pretty much anything on TLC. I just love the kind of show that makes you instantly feel better about yourself. I mean I might be messed up but at least I’m not Honey Boo Boo right?

Out of all the bad TV I watch I have a soft spot for 19 Kids and Counting, despite the fact I agree with them on very little I love the Duggar family. In a day and age where most families fail to raise 1 or 2 good kids; they’re raising 19. That’s pretty damn impressive....and crazy.

Because of my soft spot for them I’ve actually read both their books and oddly enough they weren’t bad and not at all preachy. There was however a paragraph in their second book that caught my attention.

“Men are geared differently than women; they need the physical relationship more often than women. Keep the perspective that you are the only one who can fulfil that special need in his life.” Then she says “With God’s grace we can do for each other what we ought to do, even when we don’t feel like it.”

That’s right the uber religious Michelle Duggar just said the key to a happy relationship is to have sex ever your partner wants, even if you don’t want to. That was a little titbit I didn’t see coming............Guess that explains the 19 kids.

Then last night while watching their shows one of their older girls said something that struck me as wise beyond her years, especially since it’s coming from a girl who has never been on a date or even kissed a boy.

“If you’re not happy and fulfilled when you’re single, you’ll never be happy and fulfilled when you’re with someone.”

That’s some very good advice from a very unlikely place; so I have to ask what strange places have you found good advice? And what bad TV do you love? Let me know in the comment box below. And as always stay and place safe.

Internet Friends

When I say internet friends I’m not talking about those “friends” you have online to stretch an itch. I’m talking about those few friends you’ve met online, who live on the opposite sides of the world and you continue to chat to because you like each other and have things in common. Those few special randoms you just click with.

I almost feel that the friendships you form online are more pure. You’re not influenced by who they hang out with, who they’re dating or having to be seen in public with them. These friendships are formed and last because you can be completely honest with one and other. You don’t have to pretend to be something you’re not and you don’t have to worry about maintaining a certain reputation. You’re just you.

It’s kind of weird when you think about it, you form these close friendships with people you probably wouldn’t recognize in the street. Neal is the perfect example, I felt horrible that I hurt his feelings and I may or may not have cried about it. Anyone who knows me wouldn’t believe that for second. I've never been sorry for anything I’ve said. After all it’s only my personal opinion. So the idea that I could feel bad over a relative stranger is crazy. Then again I’ve never been normal.

The other big benefit to having good internet friends is they don’t know you’re real life friends. This means you can vent, moan and bitch all you want without fear that the person will find out. Internet friends are also great for unbiased opinions. They have no motivation to lead you astray.

The other great benefit is if things turn sour Internet friends are easy to get rid of. Block button, appear offline then are so many ways to get rid of them. You hope it never comes down to that, but if they go crazy they’re easier to hide from than real world friends.

Internet friends have an important role to play in the circle of life. Anyways guys I’m off have a great night and as always stay safe.

June 30th 2010


I’ve had a lovely night at bingo, won a little bit, £50 not bad for a free night. The best part was £1.60 for an archers and lemonade. I was drinking them 2 by 2. I don’t drink often but the bingo called was on my nerves. He sounded like he was doing an Indian chant. There was no breath between numbers or words it was all joined by sound. I had a good night though. I spent a lot of the night flirting with the manager, it’s always a good night when I get to flirt and since he was flirting back I was even happier.

Here’s a random fact about me: I only read books in the summer. Now I’m not someone who sun baths. I don’t like being hot, so the suns not my friend. I do however enjoy sitting outside in a shading spot. In summer most of the time outside is cooler then in so it makes sense to lay outside with a good book and some music and relax.

I’m currently reading “Are you there Vodka, It’s me Chelsea”. I love Chelsea Handler anyways but the book is pretty good. It’s taken a while for me to get into it. I read “My Horizontal Life” in 3 days, one of which I had my wisdom tooth pulled. This isn’t going to be like that one. I’ve had it since Saturday and I’ve read 39 pages but I’m starting to get into now.
Anyways my dears I’m off to get some sleep. I have lots to do to tomorrow to get myself ready for Canada Day on Thursday.

Play nice
