You see this is why I like blogging. If I hadn't been a blogger and I hadn't published my post yesterday I would have been left wondering if I was the only person in the world that felt that way about being much much much further down the ladder than all my friends but I am a blogger and I did publish that post and now I can rest assured that of course I'm not the only one to feel that way. And everyone loves a bit of reassurance.
I have to tell you something though. This will most definitely make you laugh. And I swear on my life I am not lying about this.
Literally 10-15 minutes after I hit "Publish Post" yesterday afternoon, I got a call from one of my best friends from university to let me know that her boyfriend proposed over the weekend and she'll hopefully be getting married before summer next year.
I nearly threw myself in front of a bus on the way home from work.
But let us move on to brighter and (more importantly) funnier things. Last week Hayley at ceriselle.org decided to hold a giveaway for some rather lovely Nails Inc nail polishes.
I get irrationally angry sometimes when it comes to giveaways. Mainly because of the squirmy squirmers who never ever comment on anything that people write and yet suddenly come out of the woodwork at the mere whiff of getting free stuff. Not cool guys, not cool. I also decided in my irationally angry state that it shouldn't be as easy as just commenting to be in with a chance of winning, I thought people should work a little harder so I suggested that people should have to write an essay as to why they deserved to win this giveaway. Tim readily agreed with me.
And so, one very boring day at work (shush don't tell anyone) I decided that I would write a bloody essay about why I deserved the nail polishes and I e-mailed it to her straight away.
Hayley has been kind enough to publish it - go HERE to read it, you really should you know. It's all about how I'm rubbish at being a girl. And Tim has even graded it for me.
And no I didn't win the giveaway. I don't want to talk about it...
