Ok, I have a thing for weirdos. I admit it!!!

Normal people are just...Boring. So if I am in any way especially fond of you, chances are you must be HIGH up there on the weirdo scale! LOL

Cheers weirdies :O)

What Kind of Smurf Are You?

I've been thinking about smurfs lately. If I was a smurf I think I am blend of Jokey, Sleepy, Artist and Brainy.Lately though I think I felt more like a mix of SMURFETTE, Jokey, Sleepy, Artist and Brainy...


Apart from that I also resonate with Bashful gnome and Schroeder from Peanuts. How about you?

Today my folks rolled into town. I swear whenever my folks roll in most of the street knows! Cos they can's kinda like that feeling I get with two noisy kids making a racket and I feel tired! When they come it's like they bring all the hustle bustle chaotic mayhem of inner city dense population living with them and when they leave it is like quiet as a cemetary restful-peaceful...I need to make more noise obviously!!! Nah I like the Quiet peace...very conducive to Zz-ing! :D

Best Kung Fu Movie EVER!

Okay between my last post and bed I got distracted and detoured via...TV!

And ended up seeing a fantastic film!

Highly recommend it- the fight sequences are inspiring- I totally want to learn Wing Chun now!

P.S it is about the guy who stood up to Japan during China's invasion and later went on to teach BRUCE LEE!!!!

If you're not interested to go rent it NOW...what are you waiting for!

Today Musing

Holding high standards, being unwilling to compromise...all go hand in hand nicely with...PATIENCE...something I'm starting to learn the beauty of.

I'm so tired. So much been happening- My brain needs some time out...


love, z

There are two most powerful things a human can have in their arsenal to deal with the challenges that LIFE presents...

1) (in my humble opinion) is FAITH and a relationship with GOD...of course unless this awareness has been gifted to you you won't have it....but don't give up! All happens in the right time :)

2) The latter that follows...which we humans DO have control over is how we choose to behave and act. One of the most powerful behaviours a human can adopt I think is Acceptance. Acceptance of circumstances they can't change etc. Because once you accept, it means you can let go of attachment to thoughts of what might have been, what could have been, what might be, what will relinquish your need to control and just connect to the present moment. And this is all we can be certain we may as well enjoy each beautiful moment and just LIVE!

Clinking my glass to you! & Light *Zoe*! :)

Learning and Development

I feel like I'm wearing preshrunk clothes several sizes too small and am "growing" (in a sense) at such a fast rate they are uncomfortably tightening everyday and all my limbs are sticking out half exposed and cold! I'm hoping to find some comfy nice fitting larger size clothes soon that I can grow into so that I can rip these out of date ill-fitting ones off!

I hope you didn't take that analogy literally...I don't want to traumatise anybody to imagine me in the nud!!! :P

They call it "beauty" sleep for a reason!

WOW. It's amazing what actual sleep can do for you. The effects are quite drastic- for example it's only been 2 nights so far and I have put on significant WEIGHT and am the heaviest I have been for...I can't remember!!! My face is also starting to change perhaps losing some of that sickly, I hope it continues...cos in a few days I'm due for renewal of a five year driver's would cheer my vanity greatly to not have to always be faced with a terrible mug shot every time I open my wallet for the next five years...LOL!

I hope this post finds you well rested and in good health too :)

Welcome back to (sanity) and the land of the living Z...

I finally got SLEEEEEP for the first time in THREE AND A HALF...MONTHS!!!!

SLEEP! SLEEP! SLEEP! Did any word ever sound so SWEEEET??!

Who new moving houses could be such a health hazard?

Oh well I worked it out now. And once I catch up on the last 3.5 months, I'm hoping to get back into the full swing of busy bee LIFE!!! Maybe 20kms under the old speeds, lol I need to recognise the fact I'm getting old...

I need to catch up on blogs though, lucky I have a long weekend for that. Anyway I think I'll go back to bed now :)

Hiding under a Ball Cap

Just a quick trivial update. I'm wearing a BALL CAP which I haven't done regularly since I was 12 and/or the 2000 Olympics uniform.

Anyway I'm starting to like the look- it's really quite an attractive way to COMPLETELY hide my butchered hair that was butchered so bad and is so lopsided(even in a ponytail) it's going to take months...

People are just wondering why I am wearing a ball cap indoors in the middle of winter. Along with my usual dark glasses I feel nice and safe in my little tortoise shell :)

Knowledge is Power or Ignorance is Bliss

I found myself pondering this dichotomy of sorts today...

I would say I have gathered a lot of knowledge however I'm not sure how powerful it is. I think the more you know, the more you FEAR which is completely disempowering...

I am more likely to hold to the Ignorance is Bliss. I guess it's that middle path thing, if I grew up in a primitive community without any education that would probably be not enough knowledge. However I've had the opportunity to have A LOT of education...I think too much...however can you ever have too much knowledge? I find myself with an insatiable thirst and appetite to know and know and know.

Maybe it's like that saying "Curiosity killed the Cat".

P.S more advice from another part of Europe "Drug yourself and get on a f* plane to Europe!" LOL, I wish...maybe I need to put this intention out into the universe...however I'm not sure if it's what I really want. I have no idea what I really want. This reeks of midlife crisis. Although I thought I'd been through that already? I guess I'm waaay ahead of my time LOL!

Word from Civilization!

I opened the mail box to a sopping wet kaleidoscope of colours. Postmark:UK. Chuckles...

News from Civilization! (Anything from Europe counts, lol).

Anyway moral of the story is...never eat late at night. I couldn't sleep and found myself fantasizing about moving to European remoteness...

When I was younger I still had a lot of cool friends based here. But mostly, as it has always been, it was about my study, my career and having my own business. If that option is now out...well...the doorway in my perception just seemed to get a whole lot wider. Maybe I should start learning German, lol...

The only thing I'd miss about here is probably the weather(historically) -although this year has been pretty unseasonal and miserable. I'd also miss the amazing fresh local organic produce. And family...but that's about IT really.
