Man Crushes Reviewed

A few years a go I wrote a post about my man crushes. (you can read that here).

I recently reread it, for some unknown reason, I realised it needs reviewing. I know longer find myself pining after Carlos from the show Desperate Housewives. Will Smith how ever, I will always have a thing for.

For some reason I also missed out these 2 guys;
 Hugh Jackman(Far Left) Wolverine Please?! My favourite character played by this hunk of a ma

Darren Criss/Blaine Anderson: I love Blaine in Glee, I don't know if it his slicked back hair, that fact that he is beautiful or that hecan sing.  Whatever the reason, he makes me go weak at the knees whenever I see him.


How I missed these 2 guys of the original list I have no idea, considering how much I obssess over both of them. 

What are your guys current crushes?

Fishing in Sh*t

I left work, on Monday, later then I had intended to due to an emergency occcuring. This often happens due to the industry I am in. (I work within the Health and Social Care industry)

My idea of what was going to happen
So after a long hard day at work, I had my night planned out, veg in front of the television for a bit, go see to The Girls (my sister) dogs, as she is on holiday, and lives across the street from me, and my mum had come home from being with them throughout the day, get a nice relaxing bath with plenty of bubbles, maybe even a candle or two, before settling down to go to sleep.

What actually happened

I came home from work, the boy (little brother) was already with the girls dogs (brilliant, saved me a job until my mum was to return to spend the night a hour later). Took my shoes off, and the boy walks in stating he had lost the keys on the way home (how the hell do you lose keys crossing the road is beyond me) so I put my shoes on to go help him look for them, for him then to inform me that he had dropped then down the drains.

I then had to go help the boy literally fish in the shit infested drains looking for the girls keys as it meant the dogs were locked inside. My brother finding it rather amusing asking questions like "Whats worse, this or wiping someones arse?" I think he realised what a stupid question it was with the look that I gave him.

I had no doubt that they had been sweapt away somewhere in the drains, but the Mother was insistant that we go and check to see if we could get them, using an old kids fishing net we had from when we go crabbing at the sea side. Over and hour we spent fishing for the keys only to find some feaces covered bits of metal, stones and a 2p, after an hour or so I gave up and called a locksmith out. 

I am dreading the girl being told, she's a hot headed little thing at the best of times when she wants to me! I expect my brother is dreading it more so!

1 down, 100 to go...

I'm actually quite late in writing this post.

I attend a local blogger meet the other week hosted by the Hull Internet Creatives. It was a small meet, my self and two other members, but it was a thouroughly enjoyable meet all the same.

We spoke and showed off our blogs, and also spoke about blogger and wordpress, and ultimately that was the reason behind me changing to blogger. One of the fellow members is also a very good poet and has been putting together some of his own books. I suggest you go read some of his stuff here.

I hope to attend another blog meet soon, it's a nice way to meet people and get ideas for your own blog at the same time whilst having a cheeky alcoholic drink too.

Purple Hue....

I have 20/20 vision, which is normal,

(Here's a lesson for you - did you know that means that this means that the test subject sees the same line of letters at 20 feet that a normal person sees at 20 feet - Hence the expression 20/20)

Anyway, back on to subject, I have 20/20 vision, and yet as I sit here writing this, I am wearing my "fairly" new (2 week old) glasses with purple lenses. No they are not dummy specs for fashion, nor sunglasses as a member of staff asked me today. I do legitimately need these. I say need, but that is a lie. I've gone almost 28 years with out them.

They just make things a hell of a lot easier.

I had an appointment a few months ago, after continuous headaches/migraines which is brought on from sitting and doing paper work (and I do a lot of paper work), from the horrible strip lights and several other things. I went to get my eyes tested, but nothing, so my opticians refered me to go get my eyes tested at hospital, and there I was diagnosed with Visual Stress Disorder. And under went a specialist test which showed that purple is the best colour to relieve visual stress symptoms for me. I did used to have a blue overlay but I would often lose or forget to take the a4 sheet with me.

During the test I found that my left to right eye tracking is very jagged in its movements, and that is obviously how we read! I used to really struggle with my reading and concentrating on reading. The white/black contrast would make me feel ill, I would feel like the words were moving, read the same sentences over and over and over again, so that even short stories seemed the length of an intricate novel and my eyes would jump around the page, seemingly following the waterfall of the gaps between words.

I bought myself the cheap looking but far from cheap glasses, and touch wood, my migraines etc have been virtually none existant. I've also not had any vertigo spells, so it could very well have been that it was brought on from the visual stress. I am slowly adjusting to the constant purple hue too.

I now see the world through purple tinted glasses.
