Insert Snazzy Title Here

HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope 2010 will be super fantastic for you!!!One of my New Year's resolutions is to post more - I know I haven't, and I'm sorry. Also I won't post so much about what I'VE been doing - I just realised I must be boring you big time by doing that. Soooo, I'll post more interestingly.
Having said that, I would just like to let you know that I have finished reading the Twilight books. I have no words for how absolutely fabulous they are. Stephenie Myer is so amazingly talented. I was shocked that that was really the end - no more Bella, no more Edward, no more...everyone. Except in the movies. But they aren't as good as the books. Not even close. Oh, but please don't bombard my comments about how I have no taste in literature and Twilight is brainwashing people by making them believe in un-realistic sparkly bloodsuckers (hahaha Jacob's saying). Thanks ;P
We were at the beach on New Years day, lining up to get an ice-cream i was in one of those laugh-at-absolutely-anything moods when I heard a little boy yell out "LOOK MUM! CHOCOLATE ice-cream with CHOCOLATE sauce and CHOC CHIP SPRINKLES!!!" For some reason I found this hilarious. The boy had a really high squeaky voice, which made it sound funnier.
I was concentrating so hard on not bursting out laughing so that people don't think I'm mad that I barely heard his sister's reply-"More like calorie ice-cream with calorie sauce and calorie sprinkles". This was still funny for me, but later it made me think. So many people these days are trying to make themselves super-model thin, but really, is it worth it? Should we cut down on the chocolates so that we can be just as skinny, or continue to stay just the way we are? I know so many people (mostly the fabulous Lisa Clark) say that we should love ourselves and our bodies for what they are, and ignore all those who say we should be ultra-thin, blond and stupid. But others are saying that this encourages girls to become obese or develop serious illnesses like diabetes. Lemme know what YOU think, okay?

Well, I'm off to have a very 'me' day, that mostly consists of pampering, reading, relaxing and maybe watching a few chick-flicks like Wild Child or Breakfast at Tiffany's. Ta for now.

i finished twilight too and i'm quite proud of myself. i managed eclipse and breaking dawn in just over 2 days. i didn't have the same reaction you did thou.

bout the ice cream. we can quite easly eat choclate icecream etc and still be healthy. loving your body for what it is has to come first thou, otherwise no matter how you look you won't be happy about it, will you?

@AnnaBanana Exactly! And if we really are overweight, a doctor or someone in the medical profession will give us advice, rather than a magazine. At least, that's what I would prefer. We must eat our icecream and our fruit (cherries anyone?)!
