Ideal is I to L


14 April 2017 by Miss Andi

Hello my long-not-seen friends! “Wassup wassup” as my coach would say. “What’s the craic?” would be the phrase if we were in Belfast. “How you doin'” – if Joey wanted to hit on you. (It’s a good chance lol.) “How _are_ you?” is my go-to phrase after a hug. And I really would wait and listen to how are you – not always because I’m such a nice and friendly person (I can be) but sometimes because I don’t want to tell youΒ  how I am.


I am incomplete. Imperfect. Irregular. Especially this week. I missed blogging, and the A to Z challenge so muchΒ but things piled up at work and had insanely long hours. I’m now tired as fuck and my plan for the long weekend of Easter is to sleep. And maybeΒ do my Easter cards. (Better later than never, eh?)


But this week is about laughter and being laughed at so here’s a joke I made up. (Literally 5 minutes ago, just for this challenge πŸ™‚ )

My cat and your cat walk into a cat bar.

“Gimme a big glass of 3.5% milk with whipped cream!” my cat says with defiance.

“Shit!” your cat says with open-mouthed admiration, and before she finishes her glass, that’s exactly what my cat does.


Knocking myself down

The original plan was to record a video of myself telling a joke but I don’t want to show up with hair undone, wearing no bra and my old glasses. But that’s what I do at the weekends at home, and after the week I had, I can’t be arsed to do more. (Not even for you πŸ™‚ )

This also holds the message that the way I am in my natural form is not enough for others. Can’t be enough, is what I say to myself with hiding me. I guess deep down, before I reach that level of self-love that must be there, I believe I’m ridiculous. That’s why I am afraid to really put myself out there. That’s why I always hold back.

Links to laughter

Well that confessionΒ was a bit heavy but I’d like to finish this catch-up post on a lighter note. So here are some posts that made me laugh this morning reading the A to Z challenge:


Thank you all for being your lovely selves and here’s to a good, relaxing day even if it’s not a bank holiday where you are. Take it easy. Tomorrow I’ll be back with an interesting video that I’ve been wanting to make since I had the idea. See you then!


I have created this blog to keep me on track as I work on facing, overcoming my often irrational fears. I want to live life more freely, less restricted by my own imagination. For April’s A to Z challenge I am tackling one big fear each week: started with “Being Seen” and currently focusing on “Hurt by Laughter“.

  1. LOL It’s not yet seven here and I haven’t had my coffee. Took me a minute to get the joke, but once I did, it reminded me of more than one kid I grew up with, pushing his weight around until his mother caught up with him. I hope you get the rest you need this weekend. Find me here. LINK

    Love that you can’t be arsed to gussy yourself up because you’ve had a long week. I say go ahead let those bosoms be free and wild, wear a wet tee-shirt and I promise you whatever you turn up wearing, or not wearing, in your video we will love you still. Keep up the great posts and good catch up. πŸ™‚ Linda

  4. I absolutely love everything about your posts..the fact that you could muster up all the energy to write a catch up post after that tiring week. You even came up with the joke which made me imagine what cats could do😜
    Most of all, I love your spirit of being absolutely frank & energetic.. looking forward to the video!!

    Great way to catch up! This A to Z really lives up to the title of a challenge. I know what you mean about being seen. I work from home and a lot of times I am still in my PJs, definitely not a sight for the world to see!

    Thank you for the visit it was very kind of you and thank you for comment and link that was also very very kind. Particularly as I’m dead grumpy and tend to point at folk and shout go away.

    Apparently I am commenting using my WordPress account which is cool but not entirely sure what that will mean as the A to Z is on Blogger. Anyway i enjoyed the letter L . I am always disheveled even when i try not to be but luckily my eyesight is rubbish so I dont notice although my wife will sometimes say . . . What the hell are you wearing now you can’t meet the Queen in that . . . I bet the Queen doesn’t dress up at weekends either.


  7. Akilah says:

    I appreciate that you still managed to catch up with the missing letters. A+++. I probably wouldn’t have done the same.

    Enjoy your weekend. I hope you get the rest you require/deserve.

    I feel that I should reply with a poop emoticon to that cat joke. πŸ˜‰
    I hope you have a very relaxing Easter weekend.

    Welcome back. Good to see you back here, Andi


  10. Ha, well I think if you’re not arsed that’s fine. And it’s fine to do whatever you please on your own blog? On the internet no one knows what you’re wearing or even who you are. It’s tough to write and work at the same time!

    I am impressed you can make up a joke on the fly. Also, your “at home” look sounds a lot like mine. Very nice to meet you. πŸ™‚


  14. I’ve had those days where someone asks how you are and you just… you can’t even work up to the lie of “fine.” And they know it. But yeah. My go to reply on those days is, “next question, please.” Works with people who know me well and realize they can’t fix things.

    It’s good when you can laugh. Cat shitting at a drink order… ha ha ha. I love cats.

Am I a butterfly?

I stand here with absolute honesty. After many blogs, it's a first. No hiding, no white lies. Me as ugly and beautiful as I am.

Simple pleasure. Aka that's enough to be happy πŸ’š Haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd just remind myself how beautiful this place is 😍 #budapest #danube #cityview No creo que es una sorpresa que mucho me gustan mariposas πŸ˜‰ I don't think it's a surprise how much I love butterflies! Este es mi mismo foto del verano pasado. No es perfecto pero el momento fue lo. This is my own pic (see the cute logo? Lol) and it's not a perfect shot but man, was the moment just so! 😍 #memorias #moments #verano #summer #butterfly #mariposa #photography #cityparks When you look up in Szabadka #cityphotography #architecture #birds #colours #roofs
