United States of England

I have been abroad twice in my lifetime.

The first time was for the obligatory school trip to France when I was about 14.  We got on a coach before the sun came up, went over to Calais on the ferry and did our best not to succumb to seasickness (some more easily than others), spent an hour with a group of French school kids who spoke as little of our language as we did theirs, went round a hypermarket where we were instructed to buy some typically French food (I brought chocolate) and then came home again.  It was a very long, pointless day.  The only thing I learned was that French chocolate was yummy.

Sharing the Disney Love

I am currently in the middle of writing a proper blog (yeah, I know, about time too) and it should be up in the next couple of hours, but I had to share this video with you.  It's had over a million hits and was only posted three days ago, and it's sooooooo beautiful.

Giggle Vid: ♥

If you don't think this is sweet, then you have no soul!

Inside Out

Outside lives a girl with a smile that will brighten up the room,
Yet inside hides a girl with a frown full of despair.

Sunday Stealing: The Burnt Toast Meme II

17. Who would you like to show up at your door to say they love you?
Anyone.  As long as I knew them.  And liked them.  And they weren't stalking me.

Sunday Stealing: The Burnt Toast Meme

I just discovered this blog.  From what I can gather, they steal surveys from other bloggers (with their consent) and ask you to answer the questions to.  It's perfect for me as I'm usually awake at stupid o'clock (it's currently 3 a.m.) and quite often all blogged up with nothing to write.

Giggle Vid: Simon's Cat

Simon has a cat, he makes short films based on what his cat gets up to, and if you have a cat or have ever had a cat, you will definitely relate to Simon and his cat.

The Magicians

"If there's a single lesson that life teaches us, it's that wishing doesn't make it so.  Words and thoughts don't change anything.  Language and reality are kept strictly apart - reality is tough, unyielding stuff, and it doesn't care what you think or feel or say about it.  Or it shouldn't.  You deal with it, and you get on with your life.

Little children don't know that.  Magical thinking, that's what Freud called it.  Once we learn otherwise we cease to be children.  The separation of word and thing is the essential fact on which our adult lives are founded."
