I have reached a difficult crossroads with this Tale of Two Kings lark...

Do we go fantasy? 

Or stay realistic....

I should really sort my tags out at some point... =/

Didn't I like... JUST do that. 

It's like tidying your bedroom except... online.

(what do I tag this with? maybe I should start a new tag!)

Describe your ideal type of guy or gal -- what attracts you most when you first meet someone?

His sense of humour.

Or his hair...

Would we call Murray's game... a power game, or does he base it more heavily on strategy and form? I used to know all this shit but it's been so long I can remember nada.

Is he power, or form?

Thanks in advance!

Writing a proper blog/article is really frickin' HARD!

Most of the writing that I've done so far is fictional or on a relaxed blogging site like this, but for a long time now, I've wanted to start doing it properly. Until now though, I've never really found a topic that has interested me enough to make me stick with it and want to write multiple posts about it (aside from tennis and fandom, which aren't really topics that would inspire serious blogging from me - then again, a serious blog about the ins and outs of fandom might in face be quite interesting...).

Lately I've been thinking, in great depth, about starting a relationships blog. Overdone I know, but having marathon-watched the entire 'Sex and the City' series within about three months, it's made me think that a real blog like Carrie's would not only be fun and enlightening to write, but also pretty useful for people, seeing as the 'Sex and the City' book isn't actually her articles like I was hoping. Okay, so there's probably already one out there somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it yet, and like every good writer in history says, you have to write what you want to read. So here goes, I'm trying to start. 

But writing witty, clever, thoughtful, well-structured pieces is a lot harder than I rather niavely thought! At least when it comes to non-fiction, with which I have had little to no enjoyable previous experience. 

I'm hoping that by writing it, I'll be able to share the things that I've discovered and would have liked to know six months ago, while at the same time, hopefully understanding everything even more for writing about it. Okay, in all likelihood, it'll probably bomb, I won't stick to it, and it'll just confuse me even more because I've always been an over-analyser. Then again, I figure its worth a try and its something I'd like to have a go at. I'll not lose anything for it anyway...

I knew that my confidence had been knocked somewhat, but I didn't realise the extent to which until I just decided I was going to write today, and felt a swell of fear. I'm not sure whether its because I think I won't be able to do it anymore, or incase I find I'm not as good as I used to be, or what if I can't remember at all how to do it? 

Right now it feels like a massive cavern of the unknown. 

I know I can. And I know I'm a good writer. 

It was just alarming to realise that my automatic subconcious reaction was like this. Who knew?

You are tired,
(I think)
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.

Come with me, then,
And we'll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)

Dear Brain,

I am writing to you in official complaint. Over the past few weeks your determined and obsessional desire to think almost constantly of 'G', and, what you would like me to think are concerns about himself and my own self, has become irrationally offensive and unmentionably infuriating.

My grass is not going to water itself, and life is certainly not going to drop its best goods in my lap, while you have me sitting, pouring continuously over the past. It is old, and tired, and ragged, and when you turn my thoughts inimitably towards this topic, I can even now sense the dust layering thickly over its useless top.

I am writing to express my unhappiness with the services you are currently rendering. The impulsive need to repeatedly rethink conversations, moments, days, nights, trips and stays is unhealthy and unnecessary. Also your irrepresable desire to tell me how the last time I was peeling the potatoes I was with him, is less than progressive for my future happiness. It is also irrational and rather pathetically now little more than habit, as the pang of loneliness and regret that in the past swelled from this hapless activity is no longer with us.

I wish to inform you that I have moved on, and as my brain it is time you moved on too. I can now strongly recall the person that I once was and mysteriously gave up for no particular reason. It is time she was allowed back. I demand you invite her over for tea immediately as her company would be most welcome; indefinitely.

I will also expect to hear many proposals from you creatively, as in this department you have been unforgivably lax since last June. This will not stand, particularly upon the return of Who-I-Really-Am, as she has always been in regular need of creative sustenance. I expect your work to have improved greatly after your long, and unauthorised sojourn.

To summarise, life will not fall into my lap, so there is no need for obsessive reading of horoscopes to see what is going to happen - I will make what I want happen, with your dutiful aid. I no longer require pangs, fixations, memories or hopes of that time, or the return of that time, as we have already mutually decided in previous correspondence that it is not what we are looking for. Men and relationships, while an important part of life, are certainly not the glue that holds it together. This in particular should be remembered (although the seeking of male company in a general and friendly fashion shall be both allowed and indeed encouraged). Creativity is required on a regular basis in the place of petty self-indulgence.

I hope that this letter has properly expressed where we now stand with each other, and I expect services to resume as normal in the morning. While I am most displeased with your behaviour and work ethic over the past six months, as well as your blatant disregard for the safety of my personality, I am willing to overlook this deviation due to the length of time we have been working harmoniously together, and the strong bond we have built. You should entertain no fear of lobotomy or other such unpleasant, legal proceedings, on the condition that service returns as normal.

I am pleased that we have been able to resolve this issue amicably, and look forward to the resumption of regularity.

Yours sincerely,

I'm seriously considering, for the third time at least, starting another journal called 'Sex and the Country' and ripping off Carrie Bradshaw's topical column, except for my life, and questions, and problems. Seeing as writing has always helped me. Plus its a current topic for me (I know I'm on the wrong side of a break up technically but it doesn't mean I don't still THINK about it) and I think it would help me kickstart my writing again in general. 

I was always worried before about keeping what I had pure and perfect... and secret. Now its over anyway, though I don't doubt I'll feel the same during the next relationship. Doesn't have to be sex everytime though. I dunno... I wanna do it but for some reason a little part of me feels it might be compromising. Even if it was under a different name and no one would really know it was even linked to this journal. Unless they've read this post HA!

Would that be a bad thing do you think? lol

I found it somewhat distressing, and yet at the same time reassuring to find, that my BRILLIANT new discovery of the wonder that is Ramin Karimloo:

Who often looks like this:

Looks unbelievably like, my old faithful, this:

Yeah. Roger playing Phantom anyone? Alternate Universe fic anyone?

Trouble is I don't know which one I would use LOL.

I seem to like a man with a big nose *sporfle* its not a concious decision. And anyway, turns out, bigger is not necessarily better ladies and gentlemen. Turns out the men with big penises, don't know what to do with them, because they seem to think it means they don't actually need to make an effort. NEWS FLASH. 

(you know, now I think about it, Robert Downey Jr. looks an awful lot like them both too.... I must be trying to marry my father... he had dark hair... is all...)

Here's a question for you guys...

I did A-Level French (and passed pretty damn well too) but I was never satisfied with how we were taught. I learnt it for seven years and at the end of my qualification I still didn't feel confident speaking the language. Which was mostly down to grammar and what I felt was decide abandonment of the practical, oral side of the subject.

It's been two years now since I left school and I've pretty much done zero French since then.

I would really like to brush up on it and learn it properly so I can speak it confidently and reach something resembling fluidity. Obviously I hav a good foundation and know the basics (in theory, I just hope I remember them after all this time). All the apps and websites available are all either QuickStart guides, phrase books or dictionaries.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could use??

Thanks in advance!!

I don't know if you've seen this about, probably seeing as its taken six days to get over to the UK. 

But if you haven't seen this video yet, watch it today. If you do anything today, watch this video. 

And see what everyone's talking about
