This Is Love.

There is something sickeningly cliched about getting married on Valentine’s day, but that’s what thousands did regardless.  Edith Casa and Victor Cingolani were one of those couples when they married over in Argentina yesterday.  If you haven’t read their story, let me fill you in about why I’ve chosen to write about this particularly special couple.  He is currently in jail serving a 13 year sentence…for killing her sister.  Just let that sink in for a minute. Now I know that you have already formed your own opinion, but let me give you mine anyway.  I think it’s beautiful.  I think she’s … Continue reading This Is Love.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  How was your day? Suitably sickening?  Or perhaps it was as tedious as every other year?  Did you get any cards? I never, quelle surprise. I’m not going to lie, it was just another Thursday.  In my life Thursday’s have a reputation of being a little bit terrible ( it’s like that Monday morning feeling all day).  We’re all allowed a bad day once in a while, and today just happened to be my turn again.  Let me impart my new-found wisdom with you: 1.  If you have an injury and you roll onto it in your … Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day!

Top 5 : Soppy Love Songs

Okay, I’ve succumbed to listening to some soppy(ish) lovey dovey songs, and here are the five which I have decided encompass everything that a good true love should be (in the perfect Disney princess, hearts and flowers, Mr Perfect kind of way that various romantic publications tell us is right).  Vomit buckets at the ready… 1. I Won’t Say I think my subconcious wrote this song in my sleep, because I do this on a regular basis (it pains me to admit that).  There were so many Disney love songs that could have made it into this list, but this … Continue reading Top 5 : Soppy Love Songs

Top 5: (Not Quite) Love Songs

My current top five songs that are almost about love?  This is a slightly more enthusiastic attempt to get into the spirit of all things hearts and flowers… 1. I Hate Everything About You We’ve all been there.  Where you really like that one person who encompasses everything that you hate about humanity, and you can’t really justify it because you “just do.” 2. Wicked Way I just love the honesty of this song.  So many people out there will say that they’ve never thought like this, and at least 90% are lying.  Would you not rather somebody was honest about … Continue reading Top 5: (Not Quite) Love Songs

Top 5: Anti-Love Songs

I’d love to kickstart my month of lovey dovey blogs with something unnaturally upbeat and soppy, but let’s be realistic, this is is the Queen of Unromantic writing here.  So I thought I’d break myself into the vile subject by picking my five favourite songs that are either totally opposed to love or have nothing to do with love.  [By ‘favourite’ I mean the first 5 that came into my head. I love music too much to have favourites] 1. Everyday I Love You Less And Less If the title doesn’t explain it then I don’t know what will.  Hate … Continue reading Top 5: Anti-Love Songs

28 Days of Love.

  I have decided that all of my February posts are going to be (somehow) related to love. I feel the need to give you all some pre-warning of this plan since, if you weren’t already aware, I am the most unromantic female to have ever existed. I don’t believe in love and I am totally opposed to anything soppy. There are a number of possible outcomes: -I’m going to show some sickeningly romantic side of myself that even I didn’t know existed (Incredibly Unlikely). -I’m going to spend the whole month taking the mick out of everything and everyone … Continue reading 28 Days of Love.
