Taking Time Out to Enjoy the Small Victories

And sometimes, you just want to preserve the little moments of joy, to bottle them up, label them and say, “Remember when that happened? That was so awesome!”. Little victories like that don’t come along often, so it’s important to appreciate them when they do.

The Dhalies: Pleasing With You EP

Every day I am lucky enough to spend time with my marvellous husband, the American. And whilst I try not to sound like a total braggart, he inspires me. Every single day. He inspires me to create and live the way we want to. Since the American resigned his post as a full-time golf pro, he’s been much happier and life is good. He’s creating a tonne, and has thrown himself into creating as much content as possible for his new (well, newly revamped) website at CommunistComics.com. And so now, to the big news: I wanted to share with you something we (very loosely me, more so the American’s doing) have been working on over the past month or so. The world premiere of our new EP! WOOOO! We’ve called ourselves The Dhalies {DAH-lies}. And this is our first official offering to the music gods, called ‘Pleasing With You’. We recorded this in our living room/bedroom/studio in our box in the sky here in the big City and County of San Francisco. We want to …

We were happy being ostriches about a certain reality TV show, but apparently, you need to at least know who the characters in Jersey Shore are in order to answer questions. So we watched some. It. Was. The. Most. Horrendous. Show. I. Have. Ever. Seen. And I agree with this sentiment completely: [Source: Abby Sharp via The Daily Dawdle] It’s sad. I can never get those minutes back…

Radvent 2010 – Day 3: Writing

It’s day three of Princess Lasertron’s Radvent 2010 blogging project, and today we’re focusing on writing.   [Source: Princess Lasertron] Write a letter of love to yourself to read in one year. Dear Bec, Face it: you are totally cool.  And you’re totally awesome. Being that was just two compliments bestowed upon you, I know that if you could blush, you would do so right now. So go on and be your awkward, bashful self in the face of praise, but make sure you accept the gift of praise when you receive it.  Particularly from others. They are doing something nice for you when they say thanks for your hard work, or that your crafty work is awesome etc.  And I know deep down you really enjoy hearing that you’re doing something right, and that someone has noticed. They wouldn’t say it if you didn’t deserve it. I love how, with each passing year, you get more comfortable in your own skin. Knowing what I know and what you know, it’s getting easier to be …
