Fruit Salad? Well fruit is healthy for you, naturally that is number 1… number 2 is the fact that this week was jam packed with incredible, inspiring, amazing, wonderful, wise posts (did I go a bit wild with the description? Naaaah it’s all true!).
So please note from this day forth you are all fruits in the fruit salad of life, which type you are is to your choosing and yes there are some nuts along the way…
Before I really get into this here fruit salad of amazing posts I just want to shock everyone, I know, doesn’t it sound scary! First things first I’ll admit that I do read religious posts but I never comment on them, apologies for this. Reason? There are many which I am not going to get into during a fruit salad. This week was literally a “crazy” one because when you take into effect what I have just said, me commenting on 3 such blog posts is almost enough to give the few people that know me seriarse heart attacks. I shan’t give you a full description just go read if you’re curious 🙂
Ok breathe I know the shock was a bit much but you’ll get over it well enough with Psychscribe’s post Relationships can be so hard part 2. Yes it is the follow up to last weeks part 1 so all I will say is *ahem* I’ve realised a few things… too embarrassing to say here so just head over there if you really want to know.
Right now I just have to say that I have been shocked beyond belief with the revelation that Egypt is in fact not in Africa, I know, it’s rather shocking isn’t it. Wow, now that feels good to get off my chest phew!
Now there is a good question that keeps popping up in my mind (yes it sometimes works)… how and why would such a world renown company such as Kellogg’s come up with such a dangerous concept “lego snacks“? Well anyway’s all I know is when I come to answering Joy’s question about What my favourite cereal is… I can only answer with a resounding Lego Snacks. Besides if you really think about it Lego food could quite possibly save a whole nation if not the world!!! I am dead seriarse here and now with Ilegirl’s addition of Biofuel, well, its surely a done deal!
Ah we must never stop dreaming, so important to life and yet so often we tend to get so caught up in living in the past or present that the future, our wants, our dreams get forgotten. I am born dreamer, perhaps this is unrealistic but one day I will, and I mean will, land on the Moon for a spot of wine (a spot).
A friend of mine said to me recently that it is never too late to begin. Sometimes, as I said above, life grabs us, throws us into a situation and we start following that road and before we know it our dreams have been pushed under the carpet with no hope of seeing sunlight ever again. The one thing we must always remember though is that life happens when we make other plans, if we want to do something we must go out and try, if life throws us beans and we can’t stand them grab an apple and take a bite. Congrats Martha, I hope it all comes off and this time next week we’ll be hearing that news 😀 … dreams do come true, when the time is right anything is possible! You can do it girlfriend!
In the mood for a dinner party? A little while ago I set up a skype chat room for bloggers but be warned if you venture in there it’s at your own risk, I hold no accountability for what takes place there. Following on with a similar theme Single for a Reason has started doing dinner parties with her readers, how awesome is that??? I mean in reality who ever said we can’t have a dinner party that crosses continents, oceans or universes? No one exactly! Last night she had dinner with Razzbuffnik, someone who often has me floored by his indepth knowledge of art and humour.
My mind really boggled at her Intersections Named Flood post, not only is the photo-art incredible, the words that follow absolutely amazing! I just love abstracts, less rules, more freedom for the mind to roam, ah the bliss!
Are you a parent? A wanna be parent? Expecting a sample human? Want to own a sample human? Then I think you should first or rather start by reading a little bit about not being superman and the juice on what happens when Momma aint a happy bunny. Yes scary isn’t it? Wait… Here is one specially about the teenage-mutant-syndrome and how to handle it, ok fine, perhaps just one of the many problems you might/will face pretty soon if not already. Personally my chimps will be born with straight-jackets!
While on the topic of strange family happenings and more importantly, relationships, Hayden over at Persistent Illusion has written a book folks (yes you can do the loopy dance), it’s called “The Woman’s Relationship Bible: How I Converted a Romantic Atheist” – how cool is that!!! Good Luck Hayden, I just know it’s going to be a success and no doubt before you know it you’ll be on Oprah! Personally I feel that, once published, this book should be given out at schools world wide, especially to South African men (no offence boys)!
I can honestly say that AmberMoon’s post “The choices we make… Choosing bad things” got under my skin for some reason. She made mention of something I have been battling with. Her words are so true that I am floored, I can’t even blame it on standing on the snail! Thus I shall go forth and choose the good healthy things and not the bad dingbats. This is all I am saying on the matter and you can’t force me to say anything else other than if you read it you will understand… Just between you and me, I’ve decided to make a sacred contract with myself, for myself, about myself… it is between me and the moon but perhaps more of us should put these contracts in place. Lets start a revolution! Sometimes we just have to let things go … point blank just let them go!
In order to change the subject in a really fast manner, there has been a wealth of incredible poetry, my eyes and soul boggled galore! Cordie’s Silent Secrets and Now I lay down to sleep, Vishesh with his poem The Ever Lasting Observer, Enreal’s The Mist, Glaize with Crossroads, Amandzings I won’t say I told you so … wow WOW wow! You guys always amaze me, your talent seems to know no bounds! Each week I find myself floored with the beauty of knowing such amazing souls exist in this world, your words always so woven and true. Your light shines through like a bright light within the darkness of night!
Hmmm… talking about Secrets… nah sorry I have none apart from the fact that I am truly innocent, but alas, if I were to tell you that what are the chances of you actually believing me?
No, sorry just not going to do it… moving along swiftly
The spirit of Do Do often can lead us into believing the myth of striving to become perfect which in reality is only our perception turning into a deception at the end of a really long hard day. Perhaps Words really do get in the way and we don’t show enough gratitude to those around in the right way.
That’s the fruit salad for the week, many different inspiring fruits to choose from but all in one bowl its wow!
To end I would just like to make a public announcement…
Should you for some reason decide to tag me for any particular Meme please know that you are in reality asking for trouble and I can’t be held accountable for what you get from me. Prime example being my version of Vishesh’s Tag entitled 10 things you didn’t know about me Meme which was then picked up by Ravings from the Shell…. brave? Dare you… End of warning.
… A little bird whispered in my little earball something about me being lazy in the tagging… tsk you forced my hand! Brit in sunny California you’re it!

Laughter really is the best medicine… it can make the rain go away and only come back again on mother’s washing day… why not laugh and if all else fails remember what it was like to learn how to ride a bike!
Thanks to all of you for the many laughs we had this week, the inspiring posts and wisdom! If I forgot anyone of the list, apologies.
