Ten things I have learned in twenty-eight years:
1. Less really is more, especially in terms of make-up.
2. Although few things beat a truly brilliant red lipstick.
3. You can always run faster, it’s just a matter of realizing it won’t kill you.
4. Brussell sprouts are delicious.
5. There will just always be too many books.
6. In the land of Comfy, I am queen.
7. Cleaning house is always better when in your underwear, blasting really loud pop music.
8. The Big Lebowski, and A Fish Called Wanda will never stop being funny. In fact, like a fine wine, they just improve with age.
9. Push-ups are a tiny bit more bearable when you pretend you’re in a post-apocalyptic fight preparation montage.
10. Having a boy love you is pretty darn brilliant. Loving yourself is even better.
Now? Onwards, ho!

Love #5, #7 and #10 – Happy Birthday Girlie – Queen of Comfy – May You Reign with your HUMOR:) Happy Monday!
Awww, thanks Ms. R! I shall reign with all the laughs!! x
<3 right back!
I am not running quite as far as you are or as fast, but I sure hope to one day. Oh! and I also love brussel sprouts :D
Aren’t they the best? I could eat buckets of them. And hey, everyone starts out somewhere right? Happy running to you Mr. A! x
Yep! wish this rain would stop though so I actually COULD go out there and train :\
URG NO DOUBT. Where the heck is the sun? I’m tired of being rained on.
They say tomorrow..crossing fingers!
I have never seen The Big Lebowski. I know. I’m a loser. I do love A Fish Called Wanda, though. Michael Palin at his absolute best. Ridiculously funny. I have been a John Cleese girl for many, many years. I cannot pass up an episode of Fawlty Towers. Ever. It makes no difference that I have seen them all at least 25 times each. They still make me laugh.
Brussel sprouts are just mini cabbage. Enough said.
Too many books and too many blog posts. I am woefully behind in terms of reading them and writing them. (I’ve got one in the works— I’m kind of hypercritical of my writing these days. I don’t know why.)
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this, but the reason you have a boy who loves you so much is BECAUSE you love yourself.
Not a loser! Just a non-convert. Holy smokes, I would so love to watch that flick with you. If you do get a chance to watch it, you must! (And I really, really hope it makes you laugh.)
You know, I used to HATE brussel sprouts and now I love them. Weird right? I still hate cabbage and turnips taste like a fart smells.
TOO MANY EVERYTHING! It’s bloody overwhelming.
And your last sentence is a truism if I ever knew one. PREACH IT SISTER! x
Oh I love it! These are the best kinds of pearls of wisdom: capturing the small joys, siezing the moments, and knowing yourself. And the photo had me smiling like a Cheshire cat! Happiest of Tuesday to you, my lovely amiga.
Thanks love! I would do anything for a big pipping hot bowl of your taco soup for dinner tonight. It’s been on my mind all afternoon! x
i suppose if the CATASCLISMIC TIDAL WAVE were imminent, i could/would/should run faster. but most your other truths of birthday diskuvverry are yooniversally true.
a self-promotional plug, but one which possibly could benefit your other job: i was sooooo looking forward to your opinion of what may be my funniest post ever. yes. the colonoscopy. in the remote event there’s some material there, i wholeheartedly would positively hope you might find SOME MATERIAL there for, if not the upcoming routine, then your next presentation.
i.e. i would be honored if there was a bit of material there you could yoooze. prob’ly naught. laff @ my dilemma ennnneee weigh…
you don’t clean the kkkkaaaattttbocks in yer undeez? (mine require full facemask PPE)
Goodness no! I definitely take out the battle armour for that job.
Yeah, I often wonder about that. Like would I be able to survive some freak natural disaster? COULD I outrun the thing? I like to scare myself thinking those thoughts.
I will hop on by and check out the post, although I am a little nervous NOT GOING TO LIE. I’ll tough it out!
loved this post!!
less is more, always!!
Thanks dear! x
