(My) Life's Little Mysteries

So, after the sensible and frankly heavy topic of the last few days (although rock on with the Boycott of Amazon!) I've decided to go just that little bit silly for this post.

The very old and dusty My Space blog of 2006/07 although no longer at the site itself is saved in my inbox (that was pre-Hard drive days!), and as I said I've been reading through it. I used to swear a bit in it quite a shocking amount actually but I put that down to what I call "Chatham influence" as I was till living in my home town then and everyone swears there. And it was pre-Mini, so I wouldn't say flippin heck, I'd say...well, you get the idea!

One thing I used to do quite a lot were posts on the stupid stuff which only I would think of. The head jam question stuff.

Now, these were not hard hitting topical questions. Oh no. They were daft questions. 

So, here we go:

If Snoop Dogg sang the theme to Barney the Dinosaur, what would it sound like?

Told you they were slightly potty, didn't I? But how cool would that be?
I imagine there would be lots of the word shizzle being used (what does that mean?) 

Why can I not find the one CD I really want to find?

No, its not just 'cos I have thousands of the things. OK maybe thats partly why. No, there is a disc, which I made in 2007, in the summer.
It was in the early days of Elder knowing how to use a PC, and he often used to open virus' and I would then have a mad dash to get all the music off the Media Player before the whole thing had to be reloaded. 
The song in question is by The Nephew, and its one of those songs that when the Gills group of mates all sat in the back room and listened to for the first time, everyone was silent. It was amazing. I'm not just saying that, this was in the days when he would play us all his stuff and generally it was OK, but it wasn't silence inducing. 
I know it was on our media player, and I know it went on disc. But can I find it? Hell no! 

Peanut butter.Does anyone over the age of 10 like it?

I used to love it as a kid. Now? Can't stand it.

Why will Mini not sleep in her bed anymore?

Her room is exactly the same, her bed is the same. She however doesn't want to sleep all night in there, and for the past, well ages, I have woken up to find her in bed. Not snuggled with me, cuddling or anything. No, she just lies in the bed on the edge of the bed, and if I try and cuddle her she throws me arm off. Weirdo.

Am I too old to quite fancy the floppy haired guy in One Direction, the one who was on it last year too?

Ditto JLS. 

Anyway, I have a great week coming up, we have our first Cathartic Corner post on Wednesday from an anonymous guest, don;t forget if you want to write a letter to a loved one or friend of the things you aren't brave enough to say to them or on your blog, then get it off your chest here. Or if you just want to post here, then let me know!

Have a great week everyone x


  1. Ah, I don't miss Chatham at all (lived in Walderslade for a few years and then went a bit upmarkert by moving in with parents in Hempstead for a while before leaving uk!)

    Although I believe it should be said "Cha'ham" :)

  2. Here's the definition via urban dictionary.

    "fo shizzle ma nizzle" is a bastardization of "fo' sheezy mah neezy" which is a bastardization of "for sure mah nigga" which is a bastdardization of "I concur with you whole heartedly my African american brother"

  3. I have really enjoyed looking through your site. Thanks! :o)
