Under Pressure

Standard
Under Pressure

‘Under Pressure’ (the David Bowie and Queen version) is probably one of my all-time favourite songs. If it were a movie I’d give it 10 pumpkins. It’s perfect.

It’s perfect for describing how I’ve felt in the lead-up to my 30th birthday. Not content with just sliding into a new decade like most folk, I decided it would be more appropriate to skydive into my thirties with a whole list of youthful challenges completed.

Of course, as the big day drew closer so did the Top 30 Challenge deadline…

Guest Post: In 25 words or less…

By Shelley L.

Allow me to begin with a quote from one of my favorite childhood movies – Dumb & Dumber (no idea how it didn’t make imdb top 100)

Lloyd: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you, Mary. The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?
Mary: Not good.
Lloyd: You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?
Mary: I’d say more like one out of a million.

Lloyd: So you’re telling me there’s a chance… *YEAH!*

Movie Review: No 88. All About Eve

Movie Review: No 88. All About Eve

After a thoroughly male-dominated ‘Lawrence of Arabia‘, I was keen to watch something about women.

‘All About Eve’ fit the bill perfectly. After all, it holds the record for the greatest number of female Oscar nominations.

Margo Channing: Funny business, a woman’s career – the things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you’ll need them again when you get back to being a woman. That’s one career all females have in common, whether we like it or not: being a woman. Sooner or later, we’ve got to work at it, no matter how many other careers we’ve had or wanted. And in the last analysis, nothing’s any good unless you can look up just before dinner or turn around in bed, and there he is. Without that, you’re not a woman. You’re something with a French provincial office or a book full of clippings, but you’re not a woman. Slow curtain, the end.

Unfortunately, while I may not have been looking for a documentary on PMS, but that’s exactly what I found.

Nothing comes close to the golden coast

Standard
Nothing comes close to the golden coast

You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To the golden coast
Once you party with us
You’ll be falling in love
Oooooh Oh Oooooh

I have had quite a week and nothing sums it up better than these lyrics from Katy Perry’s ‘California Gurls’.

On Wednesday I flew into Coolangatta Airport on the sunny Gold Coast, ready and rearing to take on the eleventh challenge from my list of ’30 things to try before I’m 30′, number 7: Swim with a Dolphin.
