I have found myself "mourning" Elizabeth Taylor today, even though I have never seen a single one of her movies. I guess it's just that she was just such a part of life really. Such a "presence" is perhaps the right word. These modern mass-produced starlets can't hold a flame to her for charisma and style.
I have written this quote of hers on my whiteboard at work for all to see:
"SOME OF MY BEST LEADING MEN HAVE BEEN DOGS AND HORSES"
I decided to ease my sorrow (!) with this cupcake. Isn't it pretty? I should just call this blog, "The Daily Cupcake" really shouldn't I? I actually shared it with my friend so can not be held accountable for every calorie it contained. And I DID run 10kms at training this morning! I terrified myself yesterday by looking ahead at my training schedule for the next three months. OhMyGod! What am I doing? When did I get the hairbrained idea that I could RUN 42.2kms? I even had an early morning nightmare yesterday, waking in a cold sweat after dreaming I was at the start line with no sunhat, no gels, no anti-chafe goop and broken Port-a-Loos everywhere. Horrible!
Ever since I made the mental committment to study Journalism, my blogging regularity has improved. It must be the unleashing of my closeted writing instincts! Whatever it is, I think it must be a good thing. Cheerio!
