It’s Nice To Be Appreciated! :)


beautifulbloggeraward

I logged on today to find that Seasons Of Insanity had nominated me for a ‘Beautiful Blogger Award’.

EEEEKK!

How exciting. It’s the first bit of recognition I’ve had for my writing since I was 6 and wrote my Mum a story about a crazy elephant and a little girl. That was epic.

This nomination however was for the post ‘A Letter To 12 Year Old Me’, which I found interesting as it’s probably the only post I’ve ever written that is of a personal nature.

For the most part, I tend to write about the frivolous surface stuff, it’s easier. Being personal is scary!

Maybe from now on I’ll try to open up a bit. Or do some some creative, fictional writing that totally (is)n’t about me…?

My deepest thanks to Seasons Of Insanity for their nomination, I’m so grateful for your interest. To see all of the nominees and their work, click here.

A Letter To 12 Year Old Me…


Dearest Marley,

If you’re reading this, you’re in the Matrix. Grab yourself some leather and get to Keanu before that short haired bird does. No, wait, you’re 12. Scrap that, just cry.

Seriously though, what can I say? You’re fucked. Things are going to get really hard, for a long time, no matter what you do. I can however give you a few pieces of advice to help you cope better and avoid at  least some of the bullshit.

  1.  Don’t allow yourself to be bullied out of school: You end up going to a grammar school, well done. It’s an all girls school though so you come up against some terrible bullying and you end up leaving after developing severe mental health problems, letting them win. DON’T. Stay there, grin and bare it. It’s horrific and unfair, but it’s life. It’s not the only time you get bullied in life either so here is where you need to learn to stick up for yourself (note: you also start having a lot of lesbian sex, which is awesome, just avoid Toni W, she broke your Goddamn naive teen heart
  2. Never give up Jemma: You meet a guy and fall dangerously in love at the age of 19, he is very, very bad for you but you should experience it because you learn a lot from the years of pain and suffering. He will try to make you give up a friend called Jemma (amongst others) DO NOT DO THIS. You meet her at a time in your life when you’re lost and feeling hopeless, she picks you up, dusts you off and accepts you whole heartedly into her life. You love her deeply and she deserves your respect. It will feel at the time like you’ll be with this guy forever, so the trauma of letting her go will be worth it on some level. It’s not. It’s one of the biggest mistakes you ever make. Fight harder for her, see her in secret, anything, just don’t let her go. If you do, you’ll never forgive yourself. Read the full post »

The Best Scam Email I’ve Ever Received – With Replies


Most people don’t reply to scam emails, whats the point I guess? They will continue to scam people regardless of how angry the recipient gets. It doesn’t make me angry to receive such emails, it excites me. So I have some fun with them. This one was a beauty, my responses are in purple….

FROM THE DESK OF Mr Ali salf
AFRICA DEVELOPMENT BANK(ADB),
BURKINA FASO , WEST AFRICA
With Due Respect I am Mr Ali salf of the bill and exchange at the foreign
remittance department of AFRICA DEVELOPMENT BANK(ADB),I crave your indulgence as icontact you in such a surprising manner. But I respectfully insist youread this letter carefully as I am optimistic it will open doors for unimaginable financial rewards for both of us. In my department we
discovered an abandoned sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand US dollars (US$10.5m) only , in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family on 31 July,2000 in a plan crash and his name is Christian Eich, 57, an engineer who ran car maker BMW’s museum, his wife and two children and hiswife’s parents were also among the victims. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we
learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim of the sum amount of money with our banking home.It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you so that the money could be released to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent
disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferredinto the Bank treasury as “unclaimed fund”. The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as nextof kin to a foreigner Because I am a citizen of this country Burkina Faso. We agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the
immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private
telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location wherein the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply through my privateemailAdress:(ali.salf@laposte.net)
, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the
transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter Or call my office Private line at the bank premises(+226 71 015 407)
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully Mr Ali salf

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA let me guess, you’re the King of Zimbabwe too? And you have unicorns with magical powers who can turn water into wine? Unfortunately for you I have an IQ over 100 and I’m well aware of this scam. You Sir, are scum and I will be reporting this email and your email address. I’m sure with your millions and billions of shiny gold coins you can run from them, or use your magical unicorns to fly off into Narnia, but you’re not going to scam me.

Goodbye King of Zamunda, I had fun reading your little story. Next time include pirates. Pirates are exciting!!

Dear King of Zamunda,
 
I’m not sure you fully understood my email. I will never, ever give you my information because unlike you I am not stupid. We can email back and forth as much as you like, I find it all very amusing, but you are wasting your time trying to scam me. I hope your kingdom is doing well and that your loyal subjects are continuing to try and financially rape the innocent. Hopefully one day the lovable African military will catch up with you and remove you from your throne of tyranny. Upon researching your ‘address’ I found many many many links to your amusing scam. See a few below….

So is it 3, 4, 7, or 300,000 children that you have? Or have some died? Did the magical unicorns kill your family?! Ohhh noooooooo!!!

I have just received notice that the Prime Minister is dead and has left me all of his money, but I now need your REAL name and bank account details in order to process the money. For helping me I will give you 1 million billion simoleans and a basket of avocados. If not I will send an army of flying monkeys to your castle to destroy your evil plot for world domination.

 
The choice is yours o beloved King of Zamunda.
 
Please send your details to:

I expect a response, which I will update you with when I get it. Such fun!!

Good Riddance 2012, You’ve Been A Twat


I know, I know… castrate me, scold me, beat me for I have let you down. I’m the worst blogger there ever was and I don’t deserve you!

My sincerest apologies for the lack of posting over the last month or so. I had to move  just before Christmas, which was fun (NOT) and spent the weeks previous packing, cleaning and redecorating my old house, for the most part alone and that’s no small feat I tell you. It left me little time to think of anything else.

I for one am glad the world didn’t end last year. If it had, my life would definetly have gone out on a low, which would have been annoying.

New Friends

2012 had been a mixture of disappointing and frustrating, interspersed with absolutely-freaking-awesome trips to London and the building of new friendships. I’ve have crafted a life for myself up there which makes me very happy indeed, but it also amplifies how miserable I am in my current location. The consatnt commute is an expensive outlay but it’ll have been worth it when I get there as I’ll already have a job, friends and naughty-cuddle-chums waiting for me when I get there.

There are no career prospects here, no nightlife, none of the local Universities do the courses I want and there is literally no alternative scene to speak of. It’s what the majority would call, dead-end. The most my generation can hope for here is having babies and 15 and getting more benefits, yeah, it’s like that.

It’s okay looking at my home from up here…

It has it’s beauty, don’t get me wrong and it has some interesting history, but it’s not somewhere the young and ambitious can thrive.

I’ve also had a large cull of some of the stagnating and destructive friendships I had with people. Like I’ve said before, I don’t believe in holding onto people if they don’t put in the same effort as you and the relationship is pointless. So as much as it’s my choice it’s also a relatively stressful time realizing yet again you put your faith and hope in the wrong people.

I’ve also gone and got myself a new job, my dream job in fact, working for Rethink Mental Illness. I’ll elaborate on that another time though as I could go on about it forever.

So yeah, I’ve had my reasons for being crap, but believe me when I say you haven’t been far from my mind. I’m back on the case and will endeavor to update as much as possible from now on.

My plan for 2013 is to make as much money as is humanly possible without selling my vagina to wealthy perverts, finally get out of this country for a well needed break (it’s been 10 YEARS since I last had a holiday! Grrr) and get myself healthy. Also, more sex. Much, much more sex. I am a force to be reckoned with this year, you watch…

Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?


I love whoever created StumbleUpon, seriously. The things it’s shown me, things I could only dream of, things I’d never have sought out on my own.

This was no different:

Why Can’t I Own a Canadian? – StumbleUpon.

The brilliantly titled ‘Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?’, is a letter written to Dr Schlessinger (an orthodox Jew) who claimed during a radio show that homosexuality was an abomination and should not be condoned under any circumstances. HA! Pfft.

The letter is both funny and informative and I enjoyed it immensely. I hope you do too.

4 Ways to Keep Your Sanity When You’re Unemployed


I’ve been unfortunate enough to be unemployed several times in my life, with a distinct lack of jobs in this country, and worldwide, it’s a position many find themselves in. But it doesn’t have to be awful and it doesn’t have to drive you insane. I’ve mastered a few things now which help make unemployment tolerable and today, I share them with you..

  1. Wake up early! Don’t let yourself fall into a bad sleep pattern just because you have nothing specific to wake up for. Waking up at midday, every day, is pointless and counter-productive. The rest of the world doesn’t operate like that and you’ll end up missing out on things. Get up, get on and make the most of every day.
  2. Make plans. Whether it’s job hunting, being creative or socialising with friends, make sure you fill up your days with as much as possible. With nothing to focus on or look forward to, life can stagnate very, very quickly and you can find yourself being overlooked. If you’re really stuck for something to do, sign up to WordPress.com and start a blog! :D

    (Source: organdonation.nhs.uk)

  3. Get a hobby, volunteer or do some further education. You don’t have to be in employment to contribute to society or feel like you’re doing something worth while with your time. During periods of unemployment I have chosen to do several things to stave off boredom. I did a Psychology course with the Open University and also signed up to do campaign work with Diabetes UK and the NHS Blood and Transplant services. Doing stuff like this has several benefits, like helping others, feeling better about yourself, but it also looks great on a CV when you do come to find work, who wouldn’t want to employ someone with the initiative and drive to make more of their lives?
  4. Use your time wisely and get stuff done. Do that room that needs repainting, sort through all of your paperwork, spring clean your house or do the gardening you’ve left so long that your entire back garden now looks like a meadow. Sitting around moping about being out of work will get you absolutely nowhere, very quickly. You may as well get all of the boring, tedious things you’ve been procrastinating over out of the way, I can guarantee it’ll make you feel better and will free up your down time when you get back into work, leaving much more time for play!

Challenge Me Baby!


I’m always up for a bit of self improvement. Evolve that we must. My aim of course to become God like in my perfection. I’d say I’m actually only about 10% there (I’d be further along of course, if I didn’t enjoy being naughty so much. Sigh.)

So I found this little article: 30 Challenges for 30 Days – StumbleUpon.. and I may as well give a few of them a crack, see if they can help bump up my percentages.

One can only hope.

If I have any profound epiphany’s I’ll be sure to let you know.

The Web’s Weird and Wonderful 10/12/12


This week for your delectation, my friends, I have found awesome zombie portraits, Thai penile amputation, false prophets, letters, Johnny Depp and probably an animal or two, there’s always animals..

                                                                                                                                               

I love letters. Reading them and writing them. It’s a dying art if you ask me. So I was pleased when I came across lettersofnote.com, which has compiled what it describes as, ‘correspondence deserving of a wider audience’. And deserving they are, some funny, some touching and some just down right unbelievable. Worth a wee look.

                                                                                                                                                   

I was, until now, unaware that Thailand had had an epidemic of penile amputations back in the 70’s, but apparently they did. *Cringe* Crazy damn women! I don’t care what a man does, you don’t cut his penis off!! No. No. No. No.

                                                                                                                                                   

12 Out of Control Faith Healers – All I’m going to say is, in the wrong hands, religion can be very, very dangerous.

                                                                                                                                                  

I’ve always known Johnny Depp is awesome (and no, not just because he’s beautiful), I’ve seen him in interviews before and he always strikes me as an intelligent, witty, a bit cheeky and completely bizarre. Traits I find most appealing. Then I found this article titled ‘The 7 Greatest (True) Johnny Depp Stories Ever Told’ and it reminded me of just why he’s so epic. On screen and off.

                                                                                                                                                 

Off to the Netherlands now, and The Moses Bridge, which thanks to clever design and engineering is ‘invisible’ to the eye, well, sort of. Very cool.

                                                                                                                                               

I quite enjoyed these Zombie Portraits by Andre De Freitas

                                                                                                                                              

And finally, this picture of the gorgeous Baatara Gorge Waterfall in Tannourine – Lebanon.

Be prepared to laugh, to be in awe of the world and to awaken the deepest recesses of your mind to the crazy that is, our species. Ladies and Gentlemen. The Interweb….

I always have been and always will be a huge fan of Bill Murray, so imagine my excitement when I happened upon this article.. 20 Reasons Bill Murray is The Coolest Human Being Alive So. Frickin’. True. Look at it now please. Thank you.

                                                                                                                         

Some truly breathtaking photography of the worlds landscapes. It boggles my mind sometimes how beautiful our planet is, I can’t wait to see it all with my own eyes.

                                                                                                                          

I’ve got to admit, I knew nothing of Kabul before reading a story from The Daily Mail titled, ‘Living in The ‘Burbs, Kabul Style’. Poverty is rife in countries all over the world, so it came as no surprise to me to hear that over 1 million Kabul residence were living in extreme poverty, in slums that cover the hills surrounding the capital’s city. What did surprise me were the pictures. They are unbelievable, and beautiful. I must have spent half an hour looking at them all. How some people are forced to live eh? Shocking…

Capital growth: Low-income housing spreads into the hills surrounding the Afghan capital Kabul. Many are merely mud houses, without running water or electricity - and with open sewers running downhill  Teeming with life: The crowded hills of Kabul's outer suburbs are home to more than a million residents. Many of them are among the 23 per cent of Kabulis who live below the poverty line Looking out: Saber, an Afghan small shop owner and a resident of the hillside neighbourhood of Jamal Mina, stands on a small room he was adding to his existing home where he lives with his family high above downtown Kabul Life in the hills: Ahmad Tazim, who makes a living as a construction worker, stands with his two sons Naim, five, and Karim, two, in front of his home in the hillside neighborhood of Jamal Mina high above Kabul

*GASP* I’ve been needing something like this forever! I take my laptop to bed with me every night and this ErgoArc laptop stand would make life a whole lot easier.

                                                                                                                         

I came across a TwitLonger post sent to Jon Ronson (Author of The Psychopath Test) from a self-proclaimed psychopath. The man’s aim was to try and change how society views psychopath’s, I found his words touching, intelligent and thought provoking. Read the message here.

                                                                                                                        

Ahahahahaha. Awww. This is the most beautiful fuck-ugly cat I’ve ever seen. I want her. I love her. She’s hilarious!! Extra toes, no teeth and a dwarf. *heart explodes*

The Curse of Being Clever


This is me and my exasperation every single morning… but with boobs.

My best friend Stephen J and I are always moaning about how annoying it is sometimes, being a somewhat intelligent human being.

As much as I believe knowledge is power, I also believe that it would be nice not to understand sometimes. To not have to think, or worry about the external forces of the world, especially in the climate we live now. Holding us back, preventing us from ever fulfilling our dreams by affording us little but the roof over our heads, if that.

Oh how lovely it would be for me to only worry about the shade of my nail varnish, or what my friends are doing on Facebook. Alas, the curse means I am well aware of how screwed I am living in the UK, in 2012 at the age of 24. I’m completely screwed.

So then I came across this brilliant article, titled, 11 Reasons It’s Hard Being Intelligent | Thought Catalog. (Thought Catalog is full of exceptional articles, this one is no different.) It explains the symptoms of such a curse perfectly and I thought I’d share it with you.

Enjoy

Battles Fought


To be nobody but yourself, in a world that’s doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting..

- E. E. Cummings

9 Things You Should Know About Me Before We Go Any Further…


  1. You never, ever want to see me get annoyed with technology. I’m a pretty resilient kind of gal, I can handle a lot of shit getting thrown at me and I’m not easily fazed. I don’t sweat the small stuff any more. Technology however, is something altogether different. It is the only thing on this Earth that once failing, turns me from fun-loving 24 year old, to a stroppy, petulant 6 year old. I throw things across the  room, I shout, I cry, stomp my feet and generally behave like a absolute twat. It’s not pretty. 
  2. I want to know everything. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a naturally inquisitive nature. This and a keen eye for detail often means I find myself researching random topics for hours on end, veering off on tangents until I’ve given myself a headache. I tend to ask a lot of questions if someone has knowledge or skills I’m interested in, if you have it in you, I will extract it and then pass on my findings. I believe knowledge is power. Ignorance may be bliss but information is ecstasy.     Read the full post »

Go Ahead and Smile


Life can be a little stressful sometimes and we feel like there’s not much to smile about.

That’s why the internet is so ‘effing brilliant. A simple smile is always but a click away. I found these and they gave me a little fuzzy feeling. Hope you get it too..

The Webs Weird and Wonderful 26/11/12


This week my brain and eyes were titillated by some incredible behind-the-scenes photos from film sets, satirical art, ‘sexy’ women from he 1800’s and much more. Have a look and let yourself be titillated as I was.

A beautiful collection of landscape photography by Bulgarian photographer Evgeni Dinev.

                                                                                                                          

Giethoorn in Holland is easy to get around, but it has no roads. Instead it is connected by paths, biking trails and waterways. How quaint! I bet it’s really quiet without the constant buzz of traffic, I like the quiet.

                                                                                                                      

The quicker these Avocado Egg Rolls with Creamy Cilantro Ranch Dip are in my gut, the better.

                                                                                                                    

I came across these Awesome Behind The Scenes Photos from Horror Movies (Includes ‘The Shining’, ‘Aliens’, ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, Slience of the Lambs’, ‘IT’ and ‘The Exorcist’ to name a few.)

                                                                                                                 

Polish artist Paul Kuczynski bring us 13 amazingly dark pieces of satirical art. Designed to make us stop and think. So stop. Think.

                                                                                                               

I StumbledUpon this funny 3D short called ‘A Gentlemen’s Duel’ created by Blur Studios, it made me chuckle a few times.

- A seemingly innocent tea party is transformed into mega technological mayhem when two imperious aristocrats compete for the affections of a lady.

                                                                                                           

You may want to view this link in private, with some tissues. Lord knows those 1800’s women are sexy as Hell. Phew. ;)

                                                                                                         

And finally, this baby giraffe! (I want to touch his whole face)

The Most True Quote There Ever Was


Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you’ve never been. Sleep under the stars. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide wether you want to be liked or admired. Find out if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.

Fetish At It’s Finest (Oh How I’ve Missed Thee)


I’ve been out of the scene for a couple of months now and I’m starting to get itchy feet. Its a rarity for me to go this long without attending an event, having a photoshoot or even a basic night out clubbing.

I miss my Fetish Family, they have the ability to make me feel happy in a way I never could be here. Tactile, open minded, calming, they stole my heart and now I miss them so much it breaks. I need to dance, to go wild and forget the mundane, it’s definitely time to crack out the latex, let down my hair and head to the city, deviance calls me!

In the meantime I’ve been filling my boots with fetish photography, just to whet my appetite and inspire my next outfit. Enjoy… (over 18’s only) ;)

The Webs Weird and Wonderful 19/11/12


I’ve missed one or two of these weekly Web posts, as I’ve had the pressures of moving, job hunting and nightmare friends to contend with recently, I had to put blogging on the back burner. Rest assured though I am back with a vengeance and have scheduled the next six weeks worth of The Web’s Weird and Wonderful along with some poetry and articles for your humble enjoyment.

This week we have a thought provoking animation, cooking, songs by reclusive’s, wildlife photography, Pablo Neruda, rare celebrity photographs and a zombie map of the dead… Fill your boots.

                                                                                                                       

Chocolate and Vanilla Zebra cake… Time to crack out the apron and get baking. I want this cake in my stomach immediately.

XVII (I Do Not Love You) – Pablo Neruda (1904-1973)

                                                                                                                       

Map of The Dead – Zombie apocalypse survival game. I love the idea of this. The game uses Google maps to find your location and you make your way around your home town fighting a zombie apocalypse. (“Scavenge for supplies at real life locations around your city, fight zombies with the weapons you find and team up with your friends to complete missions together.”) Coming soon apparently. Lets hope so.

                                                                                                                       

Animals in battle – 20 Amazing Photos

                                                                                                                       

I’m not really sure how to describe this short animated film. So I’ll let someone else do it for me..

“I, Pet Goat II” is a computer animated video that is loaded with silent messages and esoteric symbolism. While the movie has no dialogue, each symbol tells a piece of a story that covers the fields of history, politics, occult conspiracies and spirituality. We’ll look at the esoteric meaning behind the viral sensation “I, Pet Goat II”. (- Vigilantcitizen.com)

Made by Canadian production crew Heliofant, it certainly is trying to say something. What? I’m not sure. Would love your opinions.

And finally, this picture of Marieta Islands hidden beach, off the coast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I’m going to win the Lottery this weekend and buy this beach…. Yep.

Thoughts on Life. By Ellen Bass


It’s All About the Getaway Sticks… Apparently


A few weeks ago, I was sorting through the many photographs on my laptop. Putting them into folders, deleting the unwanted and so on, then I came across several pictures of my legs. Upon further investigation I found that not only did I have pictures of my own legs but I’d apparently collected over 60 pictures of other peoples legs too. Why? I don’t know. I guess I have some kind of  subconscious obsession with that particular set of extremities. Who knew?! I believe they were taken over a six year period, I share with you 30 of the finest…
