What to write and what to say…..

Have you ever thought really thought about the sentence “ I have nothing to say?” I bet not… Many people have nothing to say but never say that sentence and instead repeat the same old story thousands of time until the listener says something. I have nothing against hearing things a couple of times but after that it gets boring and I would rather hear “ I have nothing to say or there is nothing going on in my life at the moment”…. Okay I know it sounds like you could be a boring person, if not seen as a loser…

Nowadays, we have to be active, always on the go and able to show off something cool going on in our lives… When do these people take a break or have a life??? Sometimes I would love to ask these people and I wonder if they are happy with themselves too??? Anyone out there know the answer??

Writing too is an issue, what to say and what to write about that will maybe interest someone out there and not bore you or put you to sleep while you are reading… Then I am a real loser or bore at best!!! But who cares, I’ll just jabber away here and write about whatever pops into my mind…

Okay… And not worry about my summer figure, losing weight, make-up tips or how I will look in the latest fashion fad or the other must haves that others think I need in my life…. Because these are the most common tops that are repeated each day and year for us gals to read about and somehow that has become boring for me to read about… Life is how it is and I will carry on with how things are.. Bad figure, out of date fashion( okay..Vintage now), and vintage make-up tips and it still seems to fit in somehow… The surprising facts that I would have never thought about until I started writing here… Inspiration comes in various ways….

So, inspire yourself today and have fun and don’t worry about being a bore either!!

Ketchup and Co……

As you may already know there are lots of things around that you can hold your ketchup in….. An amazing fact that may not be new to you……

But have you heard about the handy condiment holder for the air-vent of your car??? I bet not… and if you have; I bet you have already rushed out and bought one?
Well, as I see it, it’s a must have for 2018 for your car by adding that bit of latter-day charm to modern-day living……just attaching this little holder to the air-vent brings a whole new look to my car let alone being functional too.

And as a gal who is out and about quite a bit; my ketchup won’t spill all over the seats nor on the dashboard…even though I am not one to eat and drive. The esthetics alone are the conversation maker….
There I was driving down the street over to a friends house the other day and I told my friend in advance about that nifty little ketchup thing… and she was almost beside herself with excitement wanting to see the ketchup holder which she and my other friends didn’t have… plus this thingy is not exclusively limited to holding condiments either… What else I am not sure, but I’ll think of something and let you know. That is if you really want to know???

As soon as my friend got into my car she screamed out OMG wow, that’s really cooool!!! I knew that I had impressed her, and she took a couple of pictures of it and posted them on all her social network sites, so that the world could admire my newest thing that I bought that I didn’t need…. Don’t tell my friends that!!!

On the way to our destination to the shopping mall……We want to shop till we drop!!! Remember that saying??? We stopped at a fast-food place to order a takeaway, so that we could try out the new ketchup holder; an event to be videoed and uploaded… Not to be missed; this award-winning event!!!

Now with our fast-food in our hands I maneuvered the car into a parking spot and placed the ketchup into the holder, a sight to behold and you missed out…. It was just so exciting and then we decided to be brave and drive down the street and eat the French-fries at the same time, but then it happened….I had to break hard and you can guess what happened????
The ketchup in the holder spilled into the air-vent and flew everywhere else in the car too, making for a disappointing experience with my new ketchup holder that I was so proud of… But who cares! I pulled over to the side of the road and cleaned-up the mess, simple as that….
Though to be honest I do have some thoughts about later on, and that the car could smell like ketchup… Though when the heat is on full and there I am driving down the road, I can have the feeling of being surrounded by the fragrance of ketchup, in the summer…I don’t want to think about it!!!

After spending a great time spending our money in the mall we started walking towards my car, and we saw a crowd of people around my car which seemed a bit questionable, until I got closer and asked someone “What is going on here?“. They said that the person who owns that car has a new ketchup holder and the owner of the car…….A real NEWS MAKER!!!

After I said “ I own the car”…. The crowd went ecstatic saying they saw our videos online, and just had to know more about it and me…. My thought was “ how easy to create a hype with such a stupid thing….

My advice is…Don’t tell anyone if you have bought the ketchup holder, because you don’t want to cause envy amongst your friends…. Enjoy your ketchup!!!!!

Sorry No Selfie Today

It was brought to my attention the other day that young people take at least 30 “selfies” of themselves a day. Where do they find the time???

It got me thinking about selfies and if took 30 of myself in a day …. How would I manage?

So, I guess the first one would be when I get-up in the morning….. You probably would have a heart attack if you saw me, so I guess I won’t post one of me getting-up…. Thank goodness you say!!

Selfie number 2: Just showered, wet hair in my old bathrobe and drinking a cup of coffee… Now that is a picture to share with the world…Or???

Selfie number 3: Brushing my teeth and putting my make-up on all at the same time… Now you say: “that is a picture I want to see”!

Selfie number 4: Me doing the dishes before going to work. I bet you never saw anyone doing that before? Or is there someone at your house who does that too?

Selfie number 5: Standing at the bus stop…. Now that could be an action packed photo. I did a background check, my hair is perfect and I look good until the wind comes along right when the picture is being taken…. Who cares … post it anyway! I am at the bus stop

Selfie number 6: (To be honest I am getting tired of taking selfies and I am only at picture number 6) But the day is young and “Selfies” will make my day better…. Hopefully???

Selfie number 7: forgot to take number 6 … we’ll just skip one! Now here I am waiting for the commuter train on the platform with all the other happy commuters…. Don’t you feel that this is a must take picture to show everyone?? I do

Selfie number 8: at the office… in my office wow… This is a cool place a must picture!!! Of course with me in it…

Selfie number 9: Me by the coffee machine at work… Aren’t you impressed??

Selfie number 10: can’t take it, big boss says no!! Party pooper

Selfie number 11: no group picture either. Everyone in the office is too busy to stop for a group Selfie…. Where is the fun here?? This Selfie stuff is turning into a full time job and I am not sure if I have time to do my job now or should I be taking Selfies

Selfie number 12: Me eating my peanut butter and jelly sandwich at my desk…. Now that is something to write home about!

Selfie number 13: Leaving the office for the day… How do you like me waving at you?? Aren’t I just full of original ideas for my Selfies???

Selfie number 14: Me getting a shopping trolley at the grocery store… I bet you never thought that my life was so exciting? Did you????

Selfie number 15: A gallon of milk in my hand… you never knew that was what a gallon of milk looked like before??? Well, if you didn’t now you know.

Selfie number 16- 29: requires too much energy on my part and the battery is getting low on my Smartphone.

Selfie number 30: in the kitchen again… where I was this morning only now making dinner…. I hope everyone is hungry and likes what I am cooking?

Sorry no more selfies today!

Grocery Store Here I Come!

There is supposed to be a new shopping App on the way that will make my grocery shopping a really fun and a quick experience…….. No more fun wandering the aisle for me!!!

The little App is there to help me and make my life easier or so they say. Just scan your stuff at home that you need to buy and then you are on your way to the grocery store and once inside the GPS system shows you where to find those products….. Why do I have a brain???

I see a nightmare approaching … There I stand in my kitchen and think to myself (thank goodness I can still do that without an App) “High time to go to the grocery store”, now what??? Normally I make myself a list …. Like lots of people do; so I know what I want to buy. Well, I guess that is too old fashioned!

Now I need to take a picture of everything that I want to buy at that one and only grocery store…. Now firstly, I need a Smartphone that I can take pictures with and has App’s and the battery has to be fully charged or else my shopping picture list won’t exist…. This will take more time than me writing my shopping list on a piece of paper….. Where’s my pen????

But what really worries me is the fact that I have to constantly be taking pictures of the packages of things that I have bought and want to buy again. How much time do I have??? Let’s see: the pile of empty packaging that I saved; Smartphone ready to take pictures- laying out all the old packaging … OMG I threw some packaging out…. Now what???? My shopping trip is down the drain and it hasn’t even started yet….. NO bad hair day… But a bad grocery shopping day!!!

With sweat running down my brow I manage after 45 minutes to photograph all the stuff that I want to buy, and I still need to write a list for the stuff that I couldn’t take a picture of… now I am up to 60 minutes being wasted of my time. But saving time is of the essence!!!

There I enter the grocery store and my App automatically sends me a GPS signal so that I can find the stuff that I took a picture of at home quicker… Life can be so simple at times…. No brain required here!

Though I do have to watch were I am going. I don’t want to collide with anyone in my race to save time to get what I took pictures of. But can you image if you bought a product that was a special and the grocery store doesn’t have it anymore and my App doesn’t tell me this…. I feel that could just ruin my GPS shopping experience then and there!!

Now I have to turn to my paper list and there I stand in the middle of an aisle not knowing which way to turn because there is no GPS on my list and I have to depend on my brain power and wander the aisles aimlessly looking for that one product that I couldn’t take a picture of….. The perils of getting lost in the aisles of a grocery store!!!

But what is far worse is the thought that your battery on your Smartphone dies while in the grocery store because I forgot to charge it. Now there you go….. A nightmare that could only happen because I was trying to save time take loads of pictures and run the GPS all at the same time….. Good bye battery

Though with all those time saving Apps and stuff I must admit I will stick to the method that I like to use… the good’ol piece of paper with what I have written on it…. And to manage my way through the aisles of the grocery store… I will take my chances without GPS…. I like challenges and there is no better place than at the grocery store!

So, should you be thinking about going to the grocery store; remember your shopping list and make sure your battery in your Smartphone is fully charged or else…

What to write or what to say???

This seems to be the question of the day, because I was informed by a friend that I haven’t posted anything here for awhile… Ok, sorry. But I have been busy with work and other stuff and as everyone knows there only are so many hours in a day and to fit everything in that I want to do… well, it just doesn’t seem to work.

Then there was the New Year’s resolution issue too. I have never in my life made one because I know myself too good and I would/ could make one and probably the next day forget all about it, so to be on the safe side…

I just don’t make any! Now that really makes my life simple no worries, no reminders that I forgot to stick to the resolution and so forth!! Though while writing here I could think of a couple of things I could maybe put on a list.

1. Hoe out the attic… a nightmare under the roof just waiting for my moment of motivation… what year that will be; I really can’t tell you and don’t hold your breath waiting for me to do the job either. But it is on my to do list!!

2. Sort out books… I started but stopped after I found a book that I had never read before but have owned it for at least 20 years… High time to read it, before I forget it! So, with a nice cup of tea and relax on the sofa with the book….. Who needs to sort out the books now? Not me!!

3. The closet… Vintage styles are in, so why sort out my clothing when I am at the height of fashion now!! My golly it is so good to know that if you save something long enough it comes back in style and because it was tucked away all those years in the closet; no one will recognize it and only ask me if it is a new vintage outfit… And I can say “Oh, it is just something that I have had hanging around in my closet”… So, I guess forget that idea too about sorting out the closet.

Though I will admit I downloaded a plan that is supposed to help me organize things a bit better around here. I have even printed it out and hung it in the kitchen next to all the other things that are on the important things to do board. At least I have gotten as far as hanging it up and taking a look at it every day and contemplating to myself “when I have time I will do something on this piece of paper”.

I know that the motivation is just a step away and only a matter of time when I will tackle one of those jobs that are on the paper. I like the one about sorting out a drawer… Really easy and quick…. So I thought, I guess you have to start with a small drawer with not much in it and not one crammed with photos like I did, because I ended up sitting down and reminiscing about things while looking at them.

Well, at least now I can say that I have written about something and I will admit that I feel better too just thinking about all the things I should be doing, but instead I am sitting here writing something.

Enjoy whatever it is that you are doing and remember even if you goof-off whatever you have started at home will be there when you get back home waiting for you to finish it.

Selfie – not today Ohje!

Now that the word „Selfie“ is officially in the dictionary and is a recognized word; I feel now I can use it in a linguistic way… OK??

I know the word has been around for a couple of years now but somehow I didn’t want to use a word that isn’t in the dictionary. I know you think “How old fashioned”.. What can I say; I like to use words that have a definition in a dictionary.

Anyways, back to the “Selfie” – I will admit I do not belong to the “Selfie” crowd because I never take pictures of myself and post them online somewhere, so the world can see me and where I am at the moment. I am happy with myself and do not need recognition, and I am not sure that all the recognition that people get for their “Selfie’s” is truthful?????
Nothing against those folks but I have noticed that with some friends of mine their “Selfie’s” are getting a bit boring, because I know where they are and I know what they look like whether in a picture or in person.
I know no one is interested in what I look like or what is in the back ground, and to top it off I need to find the time to take all these photos and that means less free time for me because I am busy taking “ Selfie’s”.

Ok; some people’s “Selfie’s” are interesting because they are doing some sport or something that is really interesting. They are not just standing there and taking a picture of themselves because they have to prove something… They are taking pictures of something truly interesting!

Years ago before the internet and Smartphone’s you would be seen as being vain if you took a lot of pictures of yourself and now??????

It is really amazing how perception has changed since the invention of the internet, whether that is good or bad…. I cannot say, but I sit back with interest and watch the world evolve around me and hopefully the world will not turn into a too “Selfie” society one day

Looking for that Lady

I thought I had read it all until I stumbled across a headline saying that some guy stole some steaks and wine for his date with some lady. Really now have times gotten sooooo bad where someone has to steal stuff so they can try to impress some chick??? Bad move if you ask me…

That guy should have put a bit of consideration into what he was going to do once he asked a gal out or over to his place and stealing stuff definitely doesn’t really impress gals somehow…. Or have times changed that much????

I can see it now the gal rings the doorbell at the guys place and everything seems so perfect but he is a bit nervous always looking out the window. I would think… ah, he’s got a girlfriend and hasn’t told me or he is married and … well the rest you can imagine. I won’t go into detail here, because if it was one or the other and she did come home; I bet s…. would hit the fan and there would be an interesting exchange of words to say the least and as a gal I would NOT want to experience that!!!

Or again the guy could be worried that he was filmed while the stuff accidentally feel into his pockets in the store and thinks they may find him. The poor gal is sitting at the table enjoying a nice steak and a glass of wine and then……. A knock on the door and the crime team comes in saying to the guy that they are confiscating the meal because the food was stolen. This is definitely something that could ruin a date and she will NEVER want to see the guy again!!!

What brings a person to do something like that and if the guys strapped for cash he could cook a cheap meal or ask his buddies for a couple of bucks so he can buy something for his date but stealing.. That’s a bit much.

So, for those guys out there on a tight budget and aren’t sure… Don’t steal but instead maybe make the good old stand-by meal of spaghetti…. Cheap and easy to cook and with a little creativity it will taste good and your date won’t go sour!
