among other things.1. Arse-thetic, gorg-arse or ridicul-arse?
Lilly's Life isn’t normally seen as one of those kind of blogs although, judging from the search words some people use to get here, you would think otherwise. I have to tell you that according to my blog's Google stats there are a lot of people in the world who want to know how to have sex on a moving motorbike.
Cyril was one of them. He sent me an email about that particular post requesting more information. He had no luck. I am over the hill and the only kind of exercise that I am likely to have outside with the wind blowing through my hair is to drive with the car window open. I merely report the news Cyril, I don't necessarily live it.
So, at the risk of giving Cyril yet another thrill, and getting another email, I couldn’t resist posting this picture of what I consider to be the world’s most least erotic lingerie item ever.
This item, which is new to the market, is called the the Double-O Thong and its stated purpose is to lift your backside while flattening your stomach. Sounds good.
Except, look at IT!
What self respecting woman would be caught dead in this flesh-toned ensemble? Would you?
And moving from the ridiculous to the more seriously ridiculous.
2. “You, the little people, will be easy to 'smack down'” (no pun intended - it is a serious quote).
From a terrorist. And yes, he apparently is talking about us. In the West.
Six years ago Islamic militants, known as the Bali bombers, killed over 200 people in Bali, many of them Australians on holiday. Just another act of terrorism. On the eve of their executions by firing squad, the bombers have called for revenge against the West and have warned the US to expect defeat. One of the terrorists, said that every "fellow Muslim" needed to raise his hands "to offend the infidels [non-believers] that wronged the Muslims". This, he warned, would be the only way to stop "their cruelty to us".
I guess this is what you might expect from deranged killers. I guess they don't see that killing 200 innocent people was being cruel either. The mother of two of the bombers says her sons were right to kill non Muslims. "I don't cry. I leave it all to God," she said "I feel that killing them isn't a mistake because they don't pray."
Right, I am a mother who believes in God too. How does this kind of brainwashing happen? Are we just as brainwashed by our religions perhaps? Seriously, life is too hard to fathom sometimes.
In fact, sometimes I just want to curl up in bed and stay there.
3. A Great Bed-escape
And given I may be spending a lot of time under the covers given the news only seems to be getting worse, I have to show you this great bedscape (well I never knew about scapes before until I went to Shelia’s blog and saw her tablescape. I assume you can have a bedscape too).
So here it is - a display I saw in a store yesterday which has inspired me no end (click on the image to see those gorgeous cushions). I am going to try and do this myself. I think our beds are THE most important pieces of furniture in our homes and should be dressed accordingly.
4. Some things should be kept under the covers, Nicole!
And finally, I really feel the need to say this. For the good of a fellow Aussie. Nicole Kidman, p-l-e-a-s-e STOP giving any more interviews because you are sounding more 'lame' with each one printed! I know you are happy but...
"And I think giving birth to a child, as a woman, is what we're born to do. "It's very bittersweet," Kidman told Parade magazine. "My relationship with death used to be far more ambivalent, I think, and now it's very much about staying in the world.” Nicole, you just had a baby you didn’t find a cure for cancer! You are starting to sound more and more like Tom with each passing day....how is that possible?
By the way, Des will be back on Monday – he is keeping his post top secret until I have to publish it for him. I am telling you if there are any more stories about me ....I’ll....I'll .... cry ....then laugh, no doubt.
Have great weekend!
