For all you damn fine women out there: IVGLDSWD

I'm not one for forwarding on chain mails. If they were to all come true, I'd have no doubt caught bubonic plague or the like years ago.

Sometimes, though, something comes along where I really appreciate the sentiments.

This is one, and I'm putting it out for all of us.

Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman's Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine, n in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" Have a wonderful day!

Alright. that's the way to live life.

My favourite song at the moment is this:

01 : Brave
(Nichole Nordeman, Jay Joyce)
For Charlie, who rearranged my fearful heart.

The gate is wide
The road is paved in moderation
The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in
Welcome to the middle ground
You're safe and sound and
Until now it's where I've been

'Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything
But it's been love, Your love, that cuts the strings

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave

I am small
And I speak when I'm spoken to
But I am willing to risk it all
I say Your name
Just Your name and I'm ready to jump
Even ready to fall...

Why did I take this vow of compromise?
Why did I try to keep it all inside?

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave

I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame
Every storm will start with just a drop of rain
But if you believe in me
That changes everything
So long, I'm gone

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
I wanna be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave

Thank you, Nilknarf.

Every day should be International Very Good Looking etc etc day.

De nada, Darlene, Nora and Rachy.

I lerv mutual admiration societies.

A long time ago decided that since there are always going to be people eager to cut you down, it was up to me to say nice things about myself and others.

I don't always succeed in being nice, of course, but I do try hard.

I agree with you Nilknarf,
I always try to remind myself - "Out of the abundance of heart, the mouth speaks".

Since WHEN does there need to be a special day for women who are smart and good looking?

If there were more MEN in this country and world, you wouldn't need to delegate yourself a special day because you would feel special every day! :)

You say that you're not a "dog" and I can tell that your intelligent by your writings, so.... Hmmm... I dunno what to say now without being condescending :)

Maybe a bloke will wolf-whistle and say "Hey - NICE brain!"? :D

I'm not helping, am I? :)

Jai, I am a certified goddess!

(I'm modest, too.)

I don't take any offense at wolf whistles; a compliment is a compliment. With regards to a call of 'Nice tits!', I'd probably be a bit concerned, as I'm a long way from a 22DD. LOLOLOL!

A call of "nice tits" is just not on if you ask me - not even to a stripper or a prostitute who are (seemingly) happy to use their bodies for personal gain. Maybe a nice quiet whisper in the ear of that between a couple who are close/attached as a joke is OK - but never to an unknown woman on the street. She is still worthy of respect no matter what she looks like - even a lowlife skank like Paris Hilton deserves that!

Double-D?? Ugh - Too big! C's are the maximum in my books. I guess my problem is that I always look too far into the future and think more than 1 day/3 days/3 years ahead and wonder about the back problems that woman will have because of them. The smaller, athletic look is better in my books (it's just a pity that I am not as lithe as I would like to be.... :/

A 'goddess', eh?

I will take your word for it! :)

Funny thing is that of the reading I did on astrology quite a few years ago, there was something to do with a goddess in my corner of the spectrum.

Hmmm..... :)

At 8:41 PM, Blogger Nilk said...

Sounds like you need to get out more, jai.

I've been digging up the garden (literally) for the first time in years, and I'm feeling it. I'll be back in shape in no time.

The pool on the corner is opening this weekend, too. That will keep us out of trouble.

Probably... I've just read some _different_ books over the years :)

I don't go in for any sort of 'belief' thing anymore. I'm not religious; I don't tell the world that I'm a witch or practice wicca (because it looks trendy thanks to shows on TV); I don't practice any sort of astrology (or even read the rubbish in the papers anymore - not even for a laugh).

I've learned that there is only 1 person I can rely on in this life, and he's the one that reminds me to live right; to treat people how I like to be treated; and to brush my teeth twice a day. Me.

At 9:09 PM, Blogger Nilk said...

I'm a prolapsed catholic. Converted at 22 and while I consider myself one, don't make it to church very often. I also don't like to talk about said belief much (although I do mention it on some blogs and with regard to 'faith' and 'religion'). It's between me and God.
