Is it some sort of divine intervention..... that the festive weekend has fallen at the same time as this blog-niversary! :)
So while everyone is busy shopping and cleaning up - I thought I'd take this time out to entertain you online. And hence, the coming six days will be - 'One post each day' week with different ideas, different styles of posts each day till the finale on Sat, 29th Sept - the D Day!
I realise that with the amount of talent thats around me...it's a huge task -but I shall try my best. And you... yes "you" - please don't be mean *and please don't "Booo" me!* :P
But before I begin - I have a huge concern that I'd like to bring forth here on my blog.
I am being neglect by my blog mates! :(
And I have proof!! 2 VBM's that have been announced recently have not taken into consideration the times here in Oz.
Sunday Evening IST= Very very Late Sunday night AUST.
=> I can not attend them!
So please... all future VBM organisers, be kind and consider bloggers like me too. My suggestion, please organise VBM on Sunday morning IST, so its only Sunday afternoon in AUST and Saturday night in Europe and Americas.
*phew* OK... now that thats out of my system, my first post for this week --
Quotes - old ones that I quoted before. *now lets see of they can make new waves!*
"Teach me to care and not to care....
in this brief transit where dreams cross.... "
- By Anonymous
"It's a sure sign of summer if the chair gets up when you do."

"If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable,

"Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos
- the trees, the clouds, everything."
- Thich Nhat Hanh
"Pain (any pain--emotional, physical, mental) has a message. The information it has about our life can be remarkably specific, but it usually falls into one of two categories: "We would be more alive if we did more of this," and, "Life would be more lovely if we did less of that." Once we get the pain's message, and follow its advice, the pain goes away."
- Peter McWilliams
Quotes - ...and new!
And I have found some silly and serious quotes on birth, age and death - for this blog has seen me born fresh in my happy days, age in my tired days and die in my shitty days....

She must be found and stopped."

- Gracie Allen
"The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age."

"A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business.
He should live each day as if it were a pre-flight check.
He should ask each morning, 'Am I prepared to lift-off?' "

"Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away!
Death really hates that!"
- Matt Frewer
