Race For Life

On the 26th of June I did a 5km Race For Life run/walk, which is a women only race, to raise money for Cancer Research. I did the run with 2 of my girl friends and we raised over £450 for the cause. It's a cause we all believe in strongly, not just as scientists but as friends and family of those who have suffered from a number of different cancers. It was a really emotional but fun day which was really well organised. The signs people were wearing were really sweet and made me tear up. It was inspiring to be around so many strong women including those that were racing for themselves as well as others. My family came to support us and they enjoyed it too. We even got free Yakult! And the goodie bag at the end of the race was brilliant too.

Race For Life do many different races, for different charities, which men can partake in too so I'd highly recommend doing something like this if you want to raise money for any charity as the atmosphere is amazing.

I'd also like to thank my sponsors again, as without their help I wouldn't have been able to make the slight difference I did.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

[9/29]Track of the Day

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
