A Spoonful of Sugar..

First off! Sorry for not posting for yonks. I've just moved back home from University for the summer so it's been a bit hectic, and to make matters worse I don't have internet back here .-. So all of my blogging will be done from the comfort of.. the public library. Ugh; I've just had an egg McMuffin from McDonalds and I am stuffed!

Anyway; this blog is mainly gonna be about lies. Not horrific lies that would end you up on Jeremy Kyle or Sally Jessy Raphael, but tiny lies that, in most cases, help you in any relationship, whether it be soppy, friendly or sexy.

"Does my bum look big in this?"

In a poll undertaken by the show 'This Morning' they found that 90% of men would tell their wives/other half that their bum looked big in that new dress they bought. I think this is a big hairy lie (unless they're one of those men folk who like big butts and they cannot lie..). By telling me that my bum looked big in a dress I would either be very happy (because I quite like having a more ample bottom, on one of those good body image days) or think that you were criticizing me, telling me I was ugly, that you didn't find me attractive anymore and that my whole life was doomed! This, of course, would be on one of those days where you look at yourself and think about how much you'd like to cheese grater your hips off because they're so huge.

But then lies do not all revolve around image and all that malarky. Seeing your friends instead of going to that horrendously soppy girly film, or jam packed action film with more special effects than Michael Jackson's face or being grateful for a gift that is.. questionable but the thought was in it might be okay lies because without them, you'd probably end up losing touch with those friends or man friends because.. well that's the way it goes. The things that you lie about are never massive lies, but you can justify them because it's to save hurting the other people's feelings.

Overall, nice lies (:

Hello :D

Okay so I am gonna post a blog post later on this evening or tomorrow, but I thought I'd just say a quick hello to all of the readers that seem to have been flocking to the page this past week. I think it's gone from 40 to 130 people, which is fantastico!

Please, comment here what you like/dislike about the blog, or what you'd like to see in it in the future! No doubt I'll start running out of topics at one point ;D And please, follow (I will follow you back - I need to get some more blog reading under my belt!) and/tell your friends to check the blog out.

And keep reading!

Enough is enough.. is enough!

I love that song. It's been in my head for the past hour.

[Edit: I just re-read this blog post and it does sound a little like it'll be my last one, but it will not!]

Anyway! Been a while since I blogged last but only cause I've had nothing really worth while to say - which makes a nice change for me cause I normally have something to whinge about. So anyway; I like this blog but when I think about the reason I started it I'm always like.. cringe! I have a nasty habit of starting blogs whenever I get stressed about something, but this was probably a thing I should'a been like - do I really wanna broadcast how I'm not getting over it.

Haha, so anyway, now I'm feeling a lot better about it all! I laugh at the fact I made it, more than actually wanting to throw myself off a cliff.

And then I started to think about how people cope with stuff, in the context of relationships. I think there's stuff out there like this - the whole 'the first step is admitting you have a problem, then you go through denail, anger, etc etc.' But is that the same with everything? I'd like to think my little coping strategy went like this;
  • Denial; "What do you mean, 'is it really working out'? 'Course it is!"
  • Hurt; "Why would he do this to me?!"
  • Denial; "We'll make up in a couple of days."
  • Anger; "He better not text me."
  • Rage; "Why the hell hasn't he texted me?!"
  • Defiance; "I bloody well deserve better."
  • Acceptance; "Actually, this isn't so bad."
  • Rejection; "Yeah I know you're trying to catch my eye over the bar, you smarmy git. But I'm currently checking out the bottom of a nearby male."
I think I should patent it ;D
