facebook targeted ads.

after being 'in a relationship' for many months according to facebook targeted ads, i must be looking to get married. ads tell me that instead of waiting for a proposal, i should buy my own engagement ring so i can start on the road to wifedom asap. oh, and i should lose weight.

swede has also been 'in a relationship' for the same length of time according to facebook, but the targeted ads system seems to think he would be much more likely to click a link to 'find sexy singles' and chat to them. great.

the best sort of rejection

i didn't get shortlisted for the job i applied for :(

this made me a sad panda, til i read the letter.

150 people applied for the post, and competition was 'intense' ooerr


i got a ps at the end (hand scribbled) saying they liked the pics in my application, and they said to please give them a call if i would like to volunteer whilst i look for other jobs!

being the optimist i am, i like to think they thought i was pretty cool anyhoo, just not qualified enough! pretty pleased with that.. :-)

going to a wedding

i found the above @ new look, i might have to go into town 2muro and have a lookey. It's v cute and reminds me of mels skirt.

silly season

today in the news:

pop star *might* go to rehab in bury st edmunds (speculation and comments from members of the public)
children are getting fatter, school uniforms are having to be made bigger (they are also getting taller, but this is notably absent)
jade goody has cervical cancer (includes video of her crying after finding out, criticism of anyone else showing the video)

obv the olympics were on too, excellent. but i can't help but think the news is getting a little trivial these days, and i'd like more from teh beeb.

times-a-changin, female body has never been right...

it's been 10 days!

since my last update, which really is terrible. what can i say?

firstly, that i have been watching the olympics, and have been amazed by the synchronised diving, the swimming, the gymnastics, loads of things actually i am so impressed by it all!

secondly, that i am going through one of those times where i am just not impressed by a whole bunch of stuff and hardly have the energy to do anything about it. there is an online idiot who seems to take delight in sapping the life out of me and coming out with utter shite over and over again and to some extent i really would love to just launch into an enormous rant about how pointless and silly a person they are... but i am my mothers daughter, i would rather attack the ideas and the actions of people than the people themselves. which is an altogether much longer and more difficult task not worthy of my time or effort. i have blogs to nurture!

thirdly, i have been getting around a bit, it has been lovely being able to travel so much these past few years, i get such itchy feet if i stay in this town too long. a friend said to me last week that she would like to move northwards, as this town is a wannabe london, everyone is so self involved, self important and constantly rushing around - forgetting to stop and look at what is really beautiful in life/hippy. The south east of england, barring london, wants to be london but gets it wrong. it has eternal short man syndrome, in which it's always trying to prove itself to be the big man, and always falling depressingly short...

the world

is constantly falling apart and all you can do is stand there and try to hold shit together.

(i see this as a challenge and not a threat)

(edit: i originally wrote 'treat' lol)
