cartoon networking....


from the dsperate antics of tom, to the hilarious macho man pick up lines of johnny bravo 'hey foxy mama, you wanna smell me? hoha' to the undisputed fact that tweety really did 'taw a puddy tat' cartoon rocks my world. a lesson or two is always learnt, like from Johny, that not all hunky men are that bright, and if i was a boy i'm sure i'd learn never to use those corky lines in picking up ladies, and from tweety when he said 'Wike I said before: Once a bad ol' putty tat, always a bad ol' putty tat', and tom and jerry just teaches to know when to stop.but winnie the pooh, the cute yellow honey licking cuddly bear is a timeless toon.


i certainly am not going crazy, just got back from a long weekend with mom and i got looking at a carton of my old stuff in my room, found a little book i used to write in and saw a couple of quotes i scribled down when this charaters made me laugh and made me think at the same time.
as dim wit and little as this winnies brain seemed, my pooh was wiser in a much larger way.
i was inspired by this episode(cant remember which) when pooh asked owl to write a 'happy birthday' on the present he was giving em...whats his face? tigre?em eeroye?i forget for his birthday. poohs reason for giving this task to owl was in his words 'my spelling is wobbly, its good spelling but it wobbles and the letters all get in the wrong places'.
i'd say spellings ending up in the wrong places is bad spelling, but sweet pooh believed in himself so much and to him his spelling was good.


thats taught me that instead of getting down on myself for not being perfect, i should appreciate what i can do, think winnie the pooh is my new slogan for self(well till if forget i've made it one)
i may not speak french like i want to, not even a quarter of it, but i can say some lovely words(and maybe insults, afterall who cares what i'm saying yeah?)
i may not have the angelina jolie type lips(whats so special 'bout it anyway) but i sure do kiss good. i'm sure my future husband would attest to that:)
i may not know the sweet lyrics to say in prayers and get it right like kimpossible, but i do pray in my own way(which is still good, cos i've got prayers answered)
i may not have the tiniest waist, but i sure know how to work it.
i may not sing like the best of em', say olamild or drop rhymes like the DoG but i sure sing and rap goooooooood in my bathroom
i may not have a perfecto stunning blog
with lots of brain cracking talks and philosophical thoughts like carl,(even pooh says 'its more fun to talk to someone who doesnt use long difficult words but rather short easy words like 'what about lunch'...carl darl dont get me wrong, i love ur blog. so 'what about lunch')
or one with words so beautifully played out like queen of my castle or atutu(afterall pooh says 'you cant help respecting everyone who can spell tuesday, even if he doesnt spell it right, but spelling isnt everything, there are days when spelling Tuesday just doest count')
or be so flirty like unnaked
or be a celebrity blogger like afrobabe and princesa...lol',or load all those nasty pix that just drives people mad like one of the above mentioned stars...
or have all the answers or some of em' to those everyday issues we face like my man JT
or.....or....i could go on
but i sure do write 'tuesday' well, and i love my blog and those people who i see as my jolly good blog family members.

couldnt resist sharing this wonderful johny bravo moment with u guys
(johny looks in the mirror)'whos this handsome guy?'
(grabs a phone)'hello, 911 emergency? theres a handsome guy in my bathroom!...hey, wait a second, cancel that...its only me'...lol
