Flashdance!!!

Ok, I think I've been watching far too many dance movies of late (I'm collecting them), all that Dirty Dancing, Flashdancing, Centre Staging, and Footloosing is starting to effect my clothing choices for the Buddha boy...

Well, he may not thank me for this in years to come, but AREN'T these the coolest baby things; one of my Jamtots covers (I now have six; mottled blue-green, mottled red-orange, blue with rainbow applique, dalmation print, tiger print, and leopard print)... The leggings are from HUGGALUGS, bought them at the Baby Expo this last weekend, proceeds from these go to a camp for children suffering with cander (in Canada, mind you, not Australia, but still)... You can check them out here http://www.huggalugs.com.au/ ...

I love that over-the-shoulder shot too. What a tease! :o) He looks like Flashdance crossed with Totally Wild.

Are you an 80s film nerd or just a dance film nerd? Cos if you are the former and you haven't seen The Sure Thing then you are MISSING OUT. It seriously rocks my world, has a very young John Cusack and Daphne Zuniga and Tim Robbins in his first film appearance.

Ok, enough of my gushing. GRRRRR to Dave on the dvd thing but I think it's even more of a grrrr about you seeming like the bad person. :o( Definitely something to keep for private rants if the boys are going to make you feel like you're the evil guard at the gate and Dad is the guy down the side saying "Pssst! There's a back entrance, just keep it quiet". ;o) Hugs to you my girl.

Cheers, Cass
ps - if we do have a meet in Melb, will you be there? Would lvoeloveLOVE to meet you. Do I sound like a blog stalking freak? :o) :o)

Sorry, just a dance film nerd, have heard of that title though, can't remember if I saw it (thats sacrelige, isn't it?)...

Oh, I think I need to get back on the list, I've been busy and slack this past fortnight, I don't know what meet you're talking about, but yeah, if you're going to be there, I want to be there too, hahahaha! We can form a mutual admiration club ;)...

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
