Day 301 - L

A-Z Blogging Challenge - Day 11 - L - Love


I love, and I am loved. 


I fall in love with people, not images, not ideologies, not materials, people. 


Real people. People with personalities, with flaws and imprfections, whose idea of living is more than self advancement. 


I love selflessness. 


I don't hate people who have to depend on their looks, I pity them. 


If you have to take all your photos with your top off, just to get noticed, to get heard, or read, or complimented, y'know what? That's not real life. That's vanity. 


If you build your whole life thinking you can do anything because you're attractive, or popular, well. You have no idea. You're not living, you're existing. Feeding off the empty compliments and the fakery of it all. 


I don't envy you, I don't envy your life, because despite everything, I wouldn't change my life for the world.


I called this blog LifeLifeLifeLifeLife - for 2 reasons. Firstly, because that's the only blog title I would have considered that was actually available (!) - but more importantly, that's what all this is about. My life, my love, my friendships, my annoyances, my experiences. And You. The fact you read this, share my life with me, it's a great honour.


But what does any of that matter. I'm only me.

Day 299 - J

A-Z Blogging Challenge - Day 10 - J - Jokes


I've not exactly been looking forward to this post. Funnily (ironic..) enough, I'm not actually that funny. Well not in a 'haha' laugh with me sense. People laugh AT me I suppose, so, I'm 'funny', in that, I'm not all normal. 


Anyway, time to write some jokes. 


I remember one of my FAVOURITE jokes was one I heard years ago: 


There are 2 crisps walking along the road, and a taxi pulls up along side them both. The driver winds down the window and shouts to the crisps: "Hey, do you two want a lift?" - and one of the crisps turned to him and said: "No thanks, we're Walkers!"


Yeah, that amuses me still. :3


A joke I heard off my brother the other day still makes me laugh, and it's so my type of joke: 


"Knock Knock"
"Who's There?"
"To."
"To who?"
"I believe it's 'to whom'."


Like I said, I'm not that good on the ol' joke front. :3


INSTEAD... to the internet! GO HERE: http://anti-joke.com/


:)


What a crap post THIS has been. 


I thought I better get it done before K. Which should be a good'n ;D
