The Importance of a Woman’s Brain

Gal’s brains too are full of great things as I learned from this past weekend’s newspaper too… Now I can honestly say that I can finally understand myself after all these years… Ok, it’s taken awhile but I know now!!!

It is said that gal’s brains are divided into sections too, so that we have at least something in common with guy’s brains… what a small world it seems to be!!!

Diet section: I’ve been watching my weight for years, but I can always find something new to think about when it comes to dieting like: no candy bars for the next 2 days.. And now I already feel better with this thought because it is part of my diet.

Hair section: A nightmare when your hair doesn’t look good and I have a bad hair day…. No more thoughts today except my hair … OMG!!!!!

What to wear section: Oh, that takes up a major section of my brain and when I open my closet door and stand there I have make that all decisive decision “ what do I wear today?” – You can sort of compare this to a multi-million dollar decision as to how to run a company… But running a company could be easier!!!

Shoe section: Key section and equal to the “what to wear section”…. I love my shoes so much that my brain cells are shaped like shoes… to keep my thoughts focused.

Spending money section: Stores here I come!! But this section of the brain is connected to your wallet, so how much you spend depends on how much money is in your wallet… but a degree of happiness is always there.

Speaking section: Now, I would rate this as the utmost important section of a gal’s brain because many of us gal’s love to talk and I can only speak for myself… I could talk for hours and never run out of things to say!

So, gal’s when you put all those great sections of your brain together we have great thoughts, and talking about that… Have a happy time thinking about whatever it may be!

Guys and Gossip

I almost fell off the kitchen chair just now when I read that „Guys Gossip“… That is something that I would have never thought of in a million years!!! My golly; I had to read it in a news paper to confirm my thoughts after all these years…. Thank you newspaper article for letting me know that my thoughts were true…. I really feel relieved now and can get on with my Sunday!!!

Plus, not only the gossip article there was another one in another weekend paper that showed how guys brains are working with thoughts… No scientific stuff, but more categorized about life, and what you guys think about makes me wonder ????

Back to gossip connected to the brain: This whole gossip business made me think and I know I have written about gossip before, but never in this context of each section of a guy’s brain what have they gossiped about or are gossiping about.

So each section of the guy’s brain I guess inspires guys to gossip or is it talk…. I’m confused here

1. “ Beer section”: Now that is something I know has potential for hours of discussion and to gossip about who drinks which brand of beer and where can you get the best deal on a six-pack. Defiantly gossip potential here!

2. “S…. section” : You all know what I am talking about here, without spelling the word out. There too is an endless gossip topic that guys can dream about; compare notes on the subject and fantasize about something for hours, but first a couple of beers to get the conversation rolling…

3. “Making money section”: The most important thing of all or not??? The size of your wallet makes you a man and the thinner it is ….. Sorry, most chicks won’t like you, nor will you have many so called friends either.. But you can gossip about each other’s salaries or how much the boss earns and “why aren’t you earning that much?” Money is a topic which can be gossiped about forever!

4. “ Hot air- doing nothing section”: Oh, now doing nothing and just shooting the breeze about nothing and trying to look good in front of the other guys is a past time for many guys or just talking about nothing trying to impress some gal or someone else.. But you can gossip with the other guys about this and tell them how they BSed some chick into believing something… Life at its finest hour!!

And last but not least on the gossip / brain list was:

5. “Eating section”: Food definitely a must because who has eaten at the best restaurant or who’s partner can cook the best meal or even exchanging your favorite recipes and maybe even start a cooking club to combine all the above mentioned so that the gossip is focused and not just aimless conversation. Good gossip is the key to life and without it we would all be lost!

As for the chicks brain there was a diagram too, but I’ll get back to that later on this week.

Guys enjoy gossiping whatever the topic maybe!

Time For A Change

Four great words that we hear a lot nowadays, but who really changes???? Change can be so many things and what should change is always a question that requires a bit of thought before one changes…

Now with spring just waiting out there somewhere for us and all the Easter decorations are now being sold in the stores it can mean only one thing… spring is on its way and now it is time to start with the spring cleaning or at least the idea is good…
I have been thinking about the topic of spring cleaning and changing things around maybe or throwing some of my unwanted treasures out that you can barely see because they are hidden under an inch of dust…

Now that is something we collect whether we like it or not… our friend “DUST” and it seems that everyone collects it too and it is not just something that a certain group of people have either…. Dust sort of gives us all something in common; even if you don’t want to admit it!

Because I bet you have dust at your house too, just like I do!

I find nobody ever takes the time to think about that inch of dust that has accumulated on their books or nick-knacks and if dust could talk I am sure it could tell us some really interesting tales too. As dust is always presented as something that you must hate and always try to tackle it with the latest cleaning gadget or duster or whatever… Dust has turned into one of the most hated things in our households….

I dislike dust too just like the next person but I will not let it get the best of me either…. So, that means making some changes, but what do I change and what do I throw-out??? All that stuff even if it is a dust collector has great memories attached to it, and it is so hard to part with those loving memories… I feel like if I throw those dust collectors out I am throwing a part of myself away and that I can’t do… But it is time for a change. Yes, the change will be that I will dust and so then I can see what is under the dust. And after I can see what was hidden under the layer of dust then I won’t want to change.

I notice on TV that every house they show has no dust in it and wonder how do they manage that??? Do they have a team of people on call to tackle the dust right away as soon as it is seen???? Or the neighborhoods shown on TV too that are all shiny – do they have a dust patrol just waiting for dust and then go after it before it gets a chance to settle on something??? What happened to having something in common with other people…. DUST

I bought one of those things the other day that you can run over the table or such and the dust will stick to it like a magnet… Well, I guess after awhile the magnet part said the heck with it and seemed to let the dust lay there or just seems to make it move to another section on the bookcase… I guess dust just likes my house, so I will have to think of another change as to how to say good-bye to the winter dust and welcome the spring dust…. Always questions that need to be answered

Enjoy dusting !

Not What I Wanted

The same old thing again but it seems to be getting more popular through the years… returning the presents that you don’t like or don’t fit you and so with the “not what I wanted” everyone hopes to find what they want. What is the success rate of finding what you want???

Why don’t people communicate with each other before for the big day to find out exactly what the other person wishes for or what size do they wear and maybe this would avoid all the post-Christmas stress of returning the things that weren’t wanted?

In the paper and on TV I have seen and read that thousands of people around the globe are waiting endlessly in line to return their “not want I wanted’s”…. Oh the perils of giving presents!!! It seems these perils are getting more and more as society and the global world are linked closer together, and to make a person happy with the right present is harder and harder because the recipient goes online to see if there is something better than what they just received…..

When I think back we never had those choices and sure you could return the “not what I wanted”, but somehow we seemed more satisfied with what we received and not comparing quality, price and function right after unwrapping the present.

Have we lost track of being thankful that some dear person thought of us and took the time to buy or make and wrap that present, only to hear someone say to them…That’s not what I wanted!!!

A very sad feeling indeed for the person giving the present, knowing that what they picked out or made is totally wrong….. The modern form of communication at its best!

I have been lucky this year not to have received any “not what I wanted’s” and so I hope you have received some presents too that are what you wanted!

I’m waiting for Santa

It just doesn’t seem possible that in a couple of hours it is that time of year again where Santa will be visiting us all around the world.

I have been putting a bit of thought into Santa’s logistics and that guy must really be organized to get all the presents delivered on time to everyone and the time he and his helpers needed beforehand to read all the wish lists and to pack all the presents with the right kind of wrapping paper is unbelievable let alone the amount of wrapping paper needed to wrap everything… That guy Santa is simply amazing!!!

I always wonder does Santa ever have problems with the elves that work for him, because we never hear anything about them and all the great things they do for Santa so he can deliver all the presents on time and how many elves does he have working for him??? Anyone know?

Then there are the reindeer.. Great animals and the strength they must have to pull Santa and his sleigh around is really amazing. We seem to forget about all the logistics behind Santa that makes his one night a year run so smoothly.

Santa…. I am waiting here patiently for you and I just want to thank all your helpers in the background that make your one great night a year a success!

Merry Christmas to everyone out there who has read this post.

Christmas Countdown

Time is running out and it’s „ Christmas Countdown „now to do the last bit of running around for whatever it is you need for that big event day of the year 25th December … HELP!!!

My, how much emphasis is placed on a few hours and all that preparing, shopping and planning and so forth. If I was only paid for all the time I spent planning, shopping and cooking I would be a multimillionaire by now…

Please Santa: Where’s my pay check for all the work I have done throughout the years… This wish is at the top of my wish list this year and if it could only be fulfilled … Santa; please I have been good all year!! Though I doubt very much that my wish will come true so, I will settle for the recognition and thanks from everyone.

Got sidetracked with Santa there.. Sorry

Now it’s a race to fight the crowds and find that last minute present or anything that is leftover in the stores and buy the rest of the groceries… I’m starting to sweat just thinking about all that running around.. Great way to burn calories as long as I don’t stop to eat or drink anything.. More room for the Christmas bird than!!! I’m getting hungry just thinking about all that food that I still need to buy.

Plus, why did they plan Christmas on a Wednesday this year?? I need to have a word with those calendar producers about which day Christmas should be on. I always thought Santa had some influence on which day Christmas fell on, but I guess with modern times he is losing his influence too.

When I saw everyone running around yesterday looking for that perfect present they did not have a smile on their face or look cheery.. No sir they simply looked stress out!!!

Christmas countdown: it’s all about rush,rush and rush, but I want some time not too rush around and so my countdown to Christmas has started , and if I have forgotten something for that great day… Well, sorry because I don’t want to rush. I want to enjoy life too!

Enjoy your Christmas countdown whatever you decide to do!!

Rush Out and Buy!

The same problem every year… the right present and now all I read is that I have to rush out and buy something for Christmas. Where do I rush too and what do I buy??? Those articles are full of suggestions and tips as to how I can spend all my hard earned cash on that present that really isn’t needed and the only winner is the retailer who emptied my wallet and has a grin on their face….

I have wandered the malls and looked in many a store to find something to “rush out and buy” but in the end I still haven’t bought anything, because I haven’t seen anything that is really the present of the year 2013! There are sales and offers or buy one get one free but that still isn’t what I am looking for.

I feel misdirected as to where to rush too and buy…. Any ideas out there????

What do my friends and family want for Christmas and is it something I want to buy them??? My “rush out and buy” seems to be slowing down and by the time that day comes.. The good’ol 25th December I am still not sure if I will have bought anything by then.

I could “rush out and buy”:

Clothing….. Have enough of that.

Toiletries…. Got plenty of that too… why more, just to collect dust!

Electronics… How many devices does one need and the cables and chargers alone cost as must as the device itself.

Gift certificates… great but impersonal.. And how much should the certificate be worth, and is it from the right store???

My list could be endless here and I am in a rut as to “rush out and buy”… I’ll take my time and think about it before I spend all my money in one place or at all !

Tis the season to be jolly and spending!

Holiday… Make-up

Now, I really don’t know what to do since now there is the holiday make-up that you should have as a gal.. I thought my make-up was fine until I read the article about holiday make-up that told me I need that special touch to make me glow on that day.

I think just by standing in the kitchen cooking the meal I will be a glow from the heat put off from the stove, so why the fuss, just cook the holiday meal and there you go.. Rosy cheeks for free. Ok, I’ll admit it is not the same as going out and buying blusher, but it is a natural color that you get in your face from cooking the meal and maybe even more color too if there is someone there who doesn’t like your cooking….. Christmas is the season to be jolly

I wonder what the holiday make-up colors are?? Traditional red & green or a more modern tone that will liven up my face…. I need help!!! It seems to me as the years pass there is always more to think and worry about with Christmas approaching at the speed of light…..

My mom never gave a second thought about which make-up she would be wearing on Christmas day. She just dolled herself up and if I remember rightly she looked good for a mom. Mom’s had that mom look back then, not like moms now-a-days.

Since I started writing here; I think I’ll go tomorrow and have a Christmas make-up consultation and see what they suggest. Though I am a bit worried, because when you see how some of those models in the magazines look with their make-up on and if I looked like that I may scare everyone away and truly that is something that I don’t want to do. Plus, I have never seen anyone walking down the street with that sort of make-up on. I must be living in the wrong town…..

Personally, I like the color of the make-up which I have but still the thought not having the right Christmas make-up is a trifle worrying. Do other women worry about this problem too???
I think when I am at the office tomorrow I will make a questionnaire and send it around to all the women and see what they have to say about this subject and then I can draw my conclusion from that. Ok, maybe I should only ask the women who wear make-up, because there are a few who don’t wear any and that could sidetrack me from my Christmas make-up problem. Life can be so complicated!

Questionnaire:
1. What is Christmas make-up? No idea, never heard of it
2. What colors for Christmas? Red & Green… ok, green eye shadow & red blusher, lipstick maybe
3. How much do you want to spend? Nothing… I’m too cheap!

Well, I guess my Christmas make-up problem could be easier solved then I thought.

Gals, enjoy your Christmas make-up.. no matter which color you choose!

Heading South?

Well, fall is here and the birds are starting to say good bye and make their way to warmer parts of the world. Every day I see geese flying over my house and saying their goodbyes for this year, how nature knows what to do is fascinating.

I wonder when I look at all those geese where are they flying too and what will they see once they have arrived and will they survive? It’s too bad they couldn’t send me a post card saying that they got there all right and that the weather is nice and there’s plenty to eat.

Sure, we folks head south for a couple of weeks or months depending on whether you are retired or working.. But does anyone send postcards anymore from those warm places that they visit? I haven’t received a nice postcard in ages and have almost forgotten what they look like.

A postcard.. What’s that? Anyone ever heard of that antiquated form of communicating???
Post cards are great and the pictures on them you won’t find anywhere else either. The pictures are always somehow one of a kind. When I was a kid I used to get lots of postcards from family & friends and I knew that they were thinking of me while they were away somewhere in the world.

Oh, how I long for a postcard in my mailbox and then I can say “WOW, my friends thought of me”.

So, think about surprising your friends next time you are away, by sending them a postcard, because I am sure that will bring a smile to their face and smiles are great things!

Hot Days and Cool Thoughts

With sweltering summer weather and endless days of sunshine it often brings us to wish for a couple of cooler days. Isn’t that always so??? It’s cold outside so we wish for warmer weather and then it’s warm or too hot, then we want cooler weather. Life at its finest!! What’s the best temperature?

But that’s not what I really wanted to say here. Now reading through the endless bits of marvelous and interesting news stories; I came across something that really got my attention…. What you ask???

Christmas decorations being sold in a store (not a specialty store either)… Well, I guess you can never start toooo early thinking about that time of year and when the temperature is boiling outside I can let my thoughts wander to the cold month of December. I need to put my sweater on!

I can see my Christmas tree now before me …. I should pop by that store and get some decorations before everyone else grabs them all up and I may only be left with some tinsel! I feel a panic attack coming on and I hope my guy gets home in time so we can rush over there and stock up before December. Though I am sure he will tell me that I am nuts and ask if I was sitting in the sun too long today?

But a little secret; I did go up in the attic to check out what sort of decorations I have… That did calm my nerves a bit but then again what happens when December comes and there are new decorations in the stores and I find them nice too??? I got it!!! Have 2 Christmas trees in our house then my problem is solved. Does anyone out there know anyone who normally has 2 Christmas trees in their house at Christmas? I don’t, but I could start a new fad on our block.

Somehow, this Christmas decoration stuff just doesn’t seem to fit into my summer way of thinking and shopping, so I think I’ll just pass and let all of you out there buy what you want from the store while I enjoy myself at the beach…But, I will be thinking of you!
