Optimism vs. Cynicism

I am an optimist! I truely am!
Thats why when I saw a link to this site I thought it might be funny..... and sure enough.....

Some few favourites:

Online Offlife.

Team Player The type of cooperative, self-effacing employee beloved by corporations that promote egotists to the top positions.

Education The long and difficult process by which a young person comes to detest books.

Patriot One who believes passionately that his own nation is the greatest because it is his, and that all other nations are inferior because they aren't. Also Patriotism: The root cause of parades, wars and billowing clouds of rhetoric.

Freedom 1. In the U.S., the sacred right to speak and act according to one's conscience, except when dealing with sensitive special-interest groups or militant Republican administrations. 2. What the U.S. frequently exports to developing nations, by force if necessary.

I was over bloggin' at Roz's and she posted about her "needs". For a laugh and a bit of fun - go to google and type in "Your name" and "needs" and see what the top 5 things are that you really need......

1. Beth needs a considerable raise in salary.

2. Beth needs to blow off steam.

3. Beth needs to set aside money for taxes.

4. Beth needs follow-up surgeries.

5. Beth needs your vote at Foxsports.com.

Actallary my mandatory 4% rise comes in the next pay - woohoo!!!!! So #1 is fullfilled.
#2 - Easy done...... lol!!!!!
#3 - Hmmmm I should really look at doing my tax for the 04/05 financial year...
#4 - Ummmmm not quite sure about this one.......
#5 - UGH! Is there anything worse than sport...... I mean seriously!!!!!

This is a heap of fun! About the 7th one on the list was another Beth and it was her blog where she did this too - pretty cool!!!!!

Well its been like whole days since I have posted - but I think I am becoming a little addicted to posting on this thing.

The photo is of the kids today - we went to Nepean River to feed the ducks and play on the equipment. Well there werent many ducks around because I think the Fire Brigade scared them off. They had 3 fire trucks down on the river sucking up water and then spraying it back out. The kids really enjoyed watching them!

Anyway - I better get back to scrapping because if I finish 2 layouts using chatterbox papers then I will enter this silly design team competition.


How much?

So I entered a comp called the For Keeps Elite Team and Awards of Excellence.
I didn't win - surprise surprise! Oh well i gave it a shot - my layouts were the best I could have done. I thought they may have won a "design" award but oh well.
I am a bit down on my scrapping at the moment. I submit and submit but nope, nothing but raspberries. I guess I should be thankful for the 2 that I have had accepted for publication but I am not because they werent my best layouts. What has been published is not my best work and I feel like if I am to be published then it should be the best, not just because it fits a theme......
Anyway, I have uploaded my "Blue Jeans" layout that was my favourite one out of the 5. Ok.... off to scrap.......

The Park

What a glorious day today! The weather was fantastic! I think it may have even hit 30 degrees! Perfect!
So we decided that we would go to Western Sydney Regional Park. This time we found it without a hitch! LOL!
It was great! We were the only people there which was good and bad in a way..... good because the kids could play on anything they wanted but bad because they didn't have anyone else to play with. Not to worry! We had a heap of fun anyway and stayed for about 1 1/2 hours!!!
This photo turned out awesome! Its hard to believe but both of the kids were actually in motion when I snapped this photo!!! I wanted so badly to get a nice photo of Kate and Luke together but Luke can be very uncooperative at times......
