An email from my cousin...

I've learned that you cannot make
someone love you. All you can do is
stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
I've learned that no matter how much I care,
some people are just assholes.
I've learned that it takes years
to build up trust, and it only takes
suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.
I've learned that you can get by
on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that, you'd better have a big willy or huge boobs.
I've learned that you shouldn't
compare yourself to others - they are
more screwed up than you think.
I've learned that you can keep vomiting
long after you think you've finished.
I've learned that we are responsible
for what we do, unless we are celebrities.
I've learned that regardless of
how hot and steamy a relationship is at
first, the passion fades, and there had better
be a lot of money to take its place!
I've learned that 99% of the time when
something isn't working in your house,
one of your kids did it.
I've learned that the people you care most
about in life are taken from you too soon
and all the less important ones just never go away.
Pass this along to five friends... Trust me,
they'll appreciate it. Who knows, maybe
something good will happen.
If not... tough shit.

If we all put it on our blogs then we will have passed it on to all the world, won't we?

Very bloody funny, my girl!

I like this thoughts Tanya!
Very wise those: "I've learned that you cannot make someone love you ..." and "I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes."
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Have a great week!

Hi Tanya- that's perfect! Thanks for stopping by my blog. When do you reckon our Mum's will start making plans to visit each other in person?

You made me laugh this morning...I always appreciate that :) I see Kylie has already been here so I don't have to say..'oh, you have to read Tanya's latest post!'
Hmmm...travel plans... I don't think your mum and I can tear ourselves away from blogging long enough to do that. We'll see!
Thanks for visiting my 'blogspot'. I too am very curious about other blogging friends, so have been enjoying the peeks into each other's blogging corners. I have a friend (Pete) who gives me much helpful computer advise and aid. He had the same concerns about Webshots slowing things down. But I kept it too :) I'd love to see your little mudlark...pic maybe? We've had a sparrow pecking on the glass door when the feeder is empty. I hadn't thought sparrows were that smart. Shouldn't have preconceived notions :)

After the passion fades..there better be some money to replace it. Isn't that the truth. At least your left with something. Thanks for the smiles.
