Men in flip-flops – I don’t get it.

Men in flip-flops, you guessed it, I don’t get it. Maybe it’s just me, I’m not a lover of feet, they aren’t the most attractive part of a person’s body are they? Lets be honest here; they are frequently frightening to look at. There is just something very wrong about men baring their toes in a pair of flip-flops. I do appreciate however, that flip-flops are particularly practical for shower use, or on the beach, especially when you are wet from the sea, and need something to put on quickly. Personally, I think they should stay there; at the beach. […]

Michael Jackson Fever, fuelled by us. I don’t get it.

  I admit I was up late after hearing that Michael Jackson was taken into hospital with cardiac arrest, poised at the pc tapping frantically into various news sites and radio stations. I was waiting for more information to say what had actually happened. Then suddenly the news came in on Twitter that TMZ.com (the celebrity gossip website) had announced that MJ had died. Stunned, I looked at the screen in disbelief; it could be another hoax, I thought, it’s happened before. The acquired knowledge that Michael Jackson was dead was already taking over the internet. On facebook and twitter, […]

The BR Gatekeeper

  The air was as hot and sticky as I felt, rushing to get to the station on time. People chattering all around the building, hustling, rushing to get to their destination, it unnerved me for some reason. Finally I reached the front of the long queue in the line for tickets with minutes to spare to catch the train, where I was confronted by a woman who actually looked like a witch with her long chin and long very dark hair. “One child ticket and a platform ticket please.” I asked politely. “A platform ticket?” she enquired, looking at […]

Do the people at Apple get it?

Okay so do we get excited or not….? I’ve seen alot of reports this week about the new iPhone. No one is saying if its true or not. Its a rumour they say. So I’ve been waiting…Then! Today I saw this …….. You, like me would think wow this must be true then – but as you read on it says….. Of course we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the source’s claims since Apple will neither confirm nor deny any future product releases, including if a new phone will even be released! Urgh … so we are back to square […]

Its not just me that doesn’t get it.

    I would like to point out at this stage, that while there are lot of things I don’t get, there are similarly a lot of things that I do get 🙂   Like Twitter … Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length which are displayed on the user’s profile page and delivered to other users who have subscribed to them (known as followers). Thanks to Wikipedia for that description, don’t you […]

Written in the stars

I wrote a book about a girl who just didn’t get it…… still sorting out some final adjustments, but here are the first few paragraphs. Be Careful What You Wish for Chapter 1 / Grants Wedding Standing in the church at Grant’s wedding, I was listening to Grant and Julie saying their vows to each other and I was actually trembling. I kept thinking… What am I doing here? Why did I come? What am I, some kind of masochist? Then my mother leaned over and whispered, “Don’t worry, Danielle. One day, you’ll find someone just like him”. She was […]
