  • "You’ll find another.’ God! Banish the thought. Why don’t you tell me that ‘if the girl had been worth having she’d have waited for you’? No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody."

  • You Don’t Need Eyes When You’re Dead.

    I don’t understand why more people aren’t down to be organ donors. Its something that both worries and irritates me! I mean its not like you’re going to need them when you’re gone.

    If you believe in a God and your problem is that its wrong or you might need them wherever you’ll be off to, why would they force you to chose between having an after life and someone else having a life. Seems cruel to me.

    Must admit, eyes are a funny topic. You can pick what you’ll donate, and as I went through it all I paused on those. Do I want to deny someone their sight? You live your life through your eyes (or so it seems) so it does at first seem strange for someone else to be using them. But then I remembered, “Oh wait, I’ll be dead”, and you don’t need eyes when you’re dead.

  • I could literally kill you, figuratively speaking.

    Just a little pet hate here, I’m sure we’ve all done it but its time to see the light.

    I cannot stand people who are always using the term literally incorrectly, its like they literally don’t know what it means. Lets give these people a new word, said word is figuratively, knock yourselves out with this one.

    I’m done.

  • My dad told me today that in 2 weeks he and my mum will have been married for 34 years

    xritual-knifex:

    Then said she was ‘the most beautiful person he ever met’

    Even though my mum by this time was sprawled out fast asleep on the sofa LOL

    And I joked around saying ‘not so sure about that right now’

    And he said ‘she still is to me anyway’

    I hope someone says that about me one day :)

  • To end an awesome summer I spent some time in Kavos. I can honestly say I will never go back but the beach was beautiful… The prospect of sleazy men and not being able to flush loo roll is just too much for me to bear again though!

    Go hard? Rather go home and get my 8 hours in thanks.
