just what a fat girl needs...
Cakes and Ale, on my fridge. Sweet delicious cakes and yummy beer mocking me daily.
I kid, I kid. I managed to make it onto Ian's postcard mailing list which means I get a postcard from him once a month. It's no secret I overtweet him and I think he's all kinds of awesome, but that's just because he is, so I was thrilled when he added me to his postcard list as a late, last minute addition. I wasn't sure what to expect but was excited to receive my very first postcard from him this month. I have no idea where he found such neat cards but I love it, it's so cool!! I won't share the message with you, you'd have to get on the list but it was totally fun and he has excellent penmanship! I promised to send him a card in return and the ideas are spinning but I can't talk about it here cause he occasionally reads my gibberish.
Speaking of my gibberish. This blog has been a really fun (I'm saying fun alot today) endeavour for me but I'm no writer, I know this and I'm ok with it. I think part of my 'charm' (shutup! hahah) is that it's just me, bad grammar and all. I try to tell a story as if I'm actually talking to you and in the end I really just want to make you laugh, with me, not AT me (john). The other day I was checking my stats and alot of people end up on my blog by googling 'she said i need a goal', so, I googled it. Imagine my surprise when I wound up on a quit smoking website which had copied my entire post from Jan 7, word for word. They didn't advise me they were posting it or credit me at all. I have to say that if my story about quitting smoking can help anyone then I'm more than happy to share but as a matter of etiquette shouldn't they at least tell me they are going to use it? If they had emailed me saying they wanted to post it on the site I would have been beyond thrilled but this just left me feeling deflated and slightly violated. I emailed them about it and haven't heard back. I know by putting it out there on the net it's public and it's definitely not worth getting my knickers in a knot, I was just a bit surprised and disappointed.
In other news, not much is going on with me. I'm still looking for my mojo, it's here, then gone, then here, then gone. I have a long swim to do this weekend, apparently I'm making up time or something silly and I have been told to swim 'with intensity'. I will do some time on the trainer and get out and run too cause why do 1 sport when you can do three! ah what the hell, may as well throw a strength session in there too.
Have a great weekend!
That's all I got....
