Random Quote #236

Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Here's mine:


Tuesday Intro


The journey of my life is no different than the journey of anyone else on this planet. There have been brilliant moments and moments that still make me cringe when I think about them. I'm haunted by my past, and worried about my future just as much as anyone else. I'm confident that I'm not the only one going through the peaks and valleys of life. The realization that I'm not alone allows me to understand how normal these things really are. We tend to amplify our problems and sink into a centre-of-the-world mentality, thinking that the entire universe is conspiring against us; it's not.


Teaser Tuesday

Don't care what others think until you've taken your own thoughts into consideration. You can't predict what other people think, and even if you could, it's impossible to make everyone happy.

Here's mine:

Tuesday Intro

Annie Graham studied the selection of keys on the rusty hook behind the kitchen door, looking for the one to the crumbling Victorian mansion. Recognising the white, plastic key ring she plucked it off the hook and pushed it into the bottom of her pocket. Earlier she had filled her rucksack with a torch, some rope, a bottle of water, a bag of Quavers and a bar of chocolate: all things a girl couldn't live without. She felt like Indiana Jones, about to go on an adventure.

Teaser Tuesday

Her hands trembling, she opened it and read the inscription on the inside front cover: This is the private diary of Alice Hughes. A chill spread down the back of her neck: the man in the house had been shouting for Alice.

Loc 286, The Ghost House by Helen Phifer

Fast Five Friday - Childhood Cartoons

Fast Five Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the Cover Girls. Basically each week there will be a subject for you to list 5 things... that's all there is to it. Once you've posted your list go and leave a comment on the Cover Girls FFF post for that week so other people can read yours.

This week's subject: 5 Childhood Cartoons

I couldn't wait to write this post... being a bit of a geek I actually have t-shirts and DVDs... and cookie cutters of some of my favourite cartoons from when I was a kid (I was born in the 80s - the time of fantastic kids shows)

So here are my five complete with theme tunes :)

1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - of course in the UK during the 80s they were known as Hero Turtles instead of Ninjas.


2. The Real Ghostbusters


3. Count Duckula



4. The Trap Door - ok so it's not technically a cartoon... but it's still a kids show


5. Looney Tunes - they're still around today but they originate from well before I was born - so technically they are childhood cartoons for everyone!
