So Tomorrow Is Ash Wednesday...

Firstly, Happy Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day/Fat Tuesday - whatever you wish to call it!

Now onto tomorrow.. I always get criticised because I'm (supposed to be) a Hindu and I still celebrate all the festivals that my Christian/Catholic friends do, but I assimilate into my environment. How can you expect a child aged 4-11 to not want to celebrate or join in with what their peers regard as normal? You can't, hence why I still do it, it's a part of me now!

Anyways, that aside, I love to see if I can last the whole 40 days, I really admire those that do! So this year, I'm going to give up... Fizzy drinks, crisps (chips to the Americans) and bread for breakfast (except on weekends - bread is the only thing that I can eat at 8am and will last me until 2pm when I'm at work).

And in honour of the new style Lent, I'm going to take up... Zumba more regularly (at least 3 times a week!), being more organised, making sure I'm on time for events again and being more productive!

How about you all? What are you giving or taking up?

Feel free to drop me a comment here, or on the don't laugh twitter account (@dontlaughpeople).

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!
