Laugh at Yourself!

•April 16, 2012 • Leave a Comment

 Lets all be honest. Would this not be a better world if we all could just laugh at ourselves? Why not? We laugh at everyone else! All the idiosyncrasies, quirks, and blemishes in our own personalities make this whole gong show they call life worthwhile. Some of our own qualities we think of as flaws, are the same ones that others love and admire us for.

Take a step back, don’t worry about being so perfect, and have a good ole’ out loud, “slap your knee and piss down your leg laugh at yourself”.

You are worth it!!!!!!

Golf

" Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing. something he was born with, that's our's and our's alone. something that can't be taught to you or learned. something that has to be remembered."

Although I have only been golfing for over a year, my insatiable passion for the sport has brought be to the brink of addiction. When I sit back and think about why, I can only come up with one logical answer.

The main reason

There is no other sport like it in the world

You could be 70 or 20, 300 lbs or 100lbs

The fate of your game is in your hands and your hands alone.

 

I have a feeling there will be more golf musings by me in the future so for now I will leave you with this little gem.
Always a classic.
 

Aphrodisiac anyone?

My morning ritual: a large glass of green tea, a check of the e-mail, and a quick browse through the channels (which inevitably ends up on the Food Network so I don’t know why I even bother). This particular morning I stumbled across a film I hadn’t seen in some time. A film which moved me deeply the first and second time I had seen it, so I figured it would be a perfect way to embark on my day.

 Chocolat 

An aesthetic and savory adventure about love and chocolate, and what happens when the two unite. It takes place in a quaint little French village filled with very religious and, well…frigid people. Until one day a women moves in and starts her own Chocolaterie. Even without the deliciousness of watching Johnny Depp prance around, the whole story leaves you feeling alive and chock-full of passion. No pun intended. But what it does do the most of, is pose the question…

Can one be physically aroused by the simple taste of chocolate?

They say that a person’s senses, if utilized properly, can mentally transform your state of mind. And if it is true that sex and lust are 90% mental to begin with, then who is to say that a bite of chocolate wont light a little spark under your libido? And what about the other senses? Obviously perfume and cologne were not invented to simply mask odor. Rose petals are not thrown on beds just for decoration. Music is not played over a moonlight dance to distract from conversation. All of those things have at least one, if not two, sense sparking components that aid in the ever fascinating quest for love.

 Lets be honest. It doesn’t really have to be chocolate or even sweet necessarily does it? What about oysters or caviar; ice cream or cotton candy? Every one has their own set of private little aphrodisiacs; even if they don’t know what they are.

So go out there and let your senses run free. Embrace the smells and tastes, the lights and sounds. Sit by the ocean and smell the sea air. Listen to the waves crash on the shore. We only live once after all, mine as well keep our mojo’s running as long as possible.🙂

And as for me?

Well that’s easy.

Stone Crabs!!!!!!! Sighhhhhhhhh

An old and dear friend of mine recently sent me this list,  and although it seems very simplistic, I find it exceptionally gratifying. After all, the little actions we choose to represent ourselves with, are what make up our soul.

 

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, ‘I love you,’ mean it.

FIVE. When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much…

NINE.  Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

TEN.  In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don’t judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice 

TWENTY- ONE. Spend some time alone.

 This docu-short made by Robert Redford is most definitely worth the 5 minutes it takes to watch.

Ok….I fully admit that I do not have a high tolerance for tear control, but anyone who does not get a little choked up by this, might need a few more hugs. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS

 

Barbara Walters most fascinating BORE!!!!!

I will open with a statement to miss “Wa Wa” herself, (as she undoubtedly reads all of my blogs)…

 ” I love you dearly, but your most fascinating people of 2009  was CRAP. “

I would hope that with 10 people to choose from, I would at least agree with 5 of them. Unfortunately I could only stomach  4

Michelle Obama – Definitely fascinating….although I  wish they did not spend 5 minutes discussing her arms…reallly?

Lady Gaga – Absolutely…..what a performer and inovator….don’t really care about how many women she slept with though….she’s weird and eclectic and apparently bi or tri sexual…..Qu”e Sera Sera….keep on.

Tyler Perry – Great choice…i agree

Brett Favre – Ditto

After that it pretty much goes down hill

Glenn Beck – Probably should be commited….before he turns more seemingly normal republicans into crazed lunatics.

Kate Gosselin – REALLY? There is NOTHING fascinating about that broad.

Adam Lambert – Go play in traffic.

 

Sarah Palin – She was on it last year…ENOUGH! Maybe next year she can figure out what magazines she reads and they can have a whole new special about that.

Blanket and the other two Jackson children – interview them in 5 years… I can’t wait to see what they turn out to be🙂

Jenny Sanford – WOW….a politicains wife who found her husband cheating on her….ohhhhhh…ahhhhhhhh.

Two words Barbara :

TAYLOR SWIFT
