I obviously know Jack Shit.
I obviously know Jack Shit.
… of verstaan.
Hierdie lysie vat nogal raak:
1. A good $40 push-up bra will give you the same look as a $15,000 boob job.
2. At our age, buns (of steel) and six-pack (abs) belong on your grocery list.
3. Most men have a hard time listening to your ‘girlfriend stories’ (the kind of long, detailed stories you tell your girlfriends). If you feel the need to tell your guy a girlfriend story, give him just the highlights.
4. Always use condoms, or you may end up sleeping with all the women your ex husband slept with.
5. Guys like a woman who makes the first move. But don’t confuse initiative with being a bitch.
6. Your girlfriends will always be your girlfriends. They know too much.
7. Don’t talk about your ex-husband on the first date, and always have condoms in your purse.
8. Don’t be surprised if the woman your husband left you for comes crying on your shoulder after he left her for another woman. Life is better than any soap opera.
9. The three most important things you should look for in a guy are: Does he have a job? A car? Good teeth?
10. A woman should never dump her girlfriends for her guy.
And an extra bonus one, the most important one, the one that all of my girlfriends and I live by every day: A true woman doesn’t need a guy to take care of her, but she would love to meet a guy who would care about her.
1. A “cougar” refers to other women, not the ones you want to date.
2. Gravity, childbirth and years of nursing babies will move everything three inches below where it was originally placed.
3. Once a woman is by herself, she either learns how to do all the “guy stuff” by herself or she calls one of her guy friends for help. My point is, you ARE replaceable, dear.
4. If a woman likes you, she won’t wait for you to make the move. But don’t confuse that with being a cougar.
5. When a woman tells you one of her “girlfriend stories,” be attentive, even if you have to pretend. It will earn you extra points.
6. When girlfriends get together, they do talk about their men and about sex. Just remember that the next time you meet the girlfriends.
7. A woman who failed the first test (of marriage) will study harder for it the second time.
8. Don’t bitch to your girlfriend about your ex (wife or girlfriend), as it will give her a clue of what you’ll say about her when you are no longer together.
9. A good deodorant goes a long way. But you are not in France, so don’t shower with your cologne (but please do take shower).
10. Forget about the “three days rule.” No, we won’t think you are pathetically eager, we would love you to call us the next day.
As an extra bonus, the most important, the one rule that all my girlfriends and I live by: A truly good woman is not looking for a guy to make her happy, but would love to have a guy who can add to her happiness.
Menz werk nog aan menz se eie lysie.
Kleiner is nie ALTYD veiliger nie. NIEMAND sal vir menz kan optel en inlaai as menz nie wil gaan nie.
Menz probeer afspek (soos die Man met die Hoed sal sê). Nie sommer hieroor of daaroor nie, maar hoofsaaklik vir gesondheid en beter lyk en klere koop.
Menz se idee is om alle verfynde stysels en suikers uit te sny vir so lank menz kan. Maar, om die proses aan die gang te hou, eet menz een keer per week (op ‘n Maandag-aand) ‘n cheat meal as beloning. Want oor die 25+ jaar wat menz hierdie massa opgetel het, gaan dit nie in 6 maande verdwyn nie. So, as menz 95% van die tyd reg eet, pla die een cheat meal wat 5% opmaak, nie. En carbs is nog steeds vrek lekker!
Menz het oor 3.5 weke reeds 5 kg af gegooi. Dis slegs 8.5% van die doelwit. Stadig maar seker … En menzseMan se suikerlesings is vir die eerste keer in maande onder 10 – ten spyte van al die stres! (Al het menzseMan gisteraand ‘n tube Smarties verower en eergister het ‘n baie ongelukkige jaffle menzseMan se val gekeer … 😉 )
Dis nogal fun om die weeklikse cheat meals te beplan. Menz droom al van verlede Dinsdag af oor vars wit brood. Vars wit brood met bacon …. bacon makes everything better! So het menz se bord gelyk Maandag van hierdie week: 2 snye wit brood met bacon, 4 pannekoeke, 1 jaffle, 1 Kit Kat en ‘n groot glas Sprite.
Van bogenoemde het Menz het net ‘n halwe bacon broodjie, 2 pannekoeke, ‘n 4 vinger Kit Kat en ‘n glas Sprite genuttig. EN menz was vol! En menz het hoofpyn gehad. Carb flu, she’s a bitch!
Menz en menzseMan droom kwylend van comfort food soos macaroni & cheese, pizza, vetkoek, ens. Al daai wat ons gebring het waar ons vandag is. Waaraan ons verslaaf was – luister na die dokter hieronder. As mens carbs eet, veroorsaak dit ‘n craving vir nog en nog en nog; dis ‘n bose kringloop. Obesity is a disease, dis ‘n verslawing. En dis true. Njannies.
Dus loop menz wye draaie om die donuts by die werk, vars wit brood en pizza winkels. Vir 95% van die tyd. En eet so lekker as menz kan vir die ander 5%.
Hierdie Maandag moet daar roomys op die menu wees …
PS: menz verloor altyd eerste gewig in menz se boobs, so hulle is nou 2.5 kg elk ligter …. kon dit nie maar van die heupe verdwyn het nie? 😕
Menz wens so menz kan iets nuuts en handig uivind en/of ontwerp ….
Hierdie is ‘n goeie voorbeeld:
Maar menz sou eerder iets wou ontwerp of uitvind waarsonder NIEMAND kan doen nie …
Miskien moet menz uitfigure hoe om meer tyd te maak …
Paraprosdokian is a derivative of a Greek word, which means beyond expectation. It is a wordplay type of literary device. Its final part of a phrase or sentence is unexpected. Its unexpected or surprised shift in meaning appears at the end of a stanza, series, sentence or paragraph.
“… we will learn together how to speak and then to create our truth. For truth is not only merely spoken and reflected upon, it is created. And we are going to ask each of you in this program to look at the four cornerstones of the human experience in the context of your current functioning truth about it. And we’re going to ask you to do it transparently. What is my transparent truth about money? What is my truth about love? What is my truth about sex? What is my truth about God?
Then we’re going to ask you to look at, having identified your truth and spoken it to yourself and perhaps to others, maybe to us in this room; does this truth work for me? Is it providing me a platform from which I can create an experience the grandest version of the greatest vision ever I held about who I am? If it is, bravo! If it is not, or to the degree that there is still a bit further we can go in the creation of that vision; to that degree we will then invite you to create a new truth. To hold a new reality. To move into a new and grander experience to recreate yourself anew. In the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about who you are.
And why go through all of that? Why even bother with it? That’s why we came here. That’s why we’re on the planet. That’s what the whole shooting match is all about.
This isn’t about getting through the week, paying the mortgage, putting a few bucks aside for the grand kids. This isn’t about hailing the phone bill, keeping the relationship together, keeping the job, getting the job. This isn’t about this experience called life, what so many people have allowed it to be about. Your life has nothing to do with what you’re doing, and everything to do with what you’re being. Because you are not a human doing, you are a human being. And if you’re not being what you’re being from the place of your biggest and grandest truth, then what’s going on? What’s the point of it? And I tell you this: if you don’t come from this place sooner than later, you will ask that question at the end of your life. I promise you.
My father at 82 looked me square in the eye and said what is the point of it? That’s a very sad question to ask yourself at the age of 82. What’s the point of it?
But it’s not an uncommon one, because so few of us really know who we really are.”
Hierdie is een van die flieks vir 2017 wat op menz se popcornlys is (soortgelyk aan ‘n bucket list, maar flieks wat menz wil sien). Nie net entertainment value nie, maar ‘n diep-dink-fliek.
Manchester by the Sea gaan oor dood en liefde en alles wat daarmee saam gaan. EN meer.
Menz weet nie watter era het kinders meer opgefok vir die toekoms nie, maar menz vermoed beide.
(March 21st to April 19th)
You’re losing your hunger for growth and knowledge, because you’re not spending your time and energy on stuff that challenges you and forces you to be better. Whether it’s a bland job, a mediocre partner, or a lack of passions outside of work, you need to find something that inspires you and breathes life back into your everyday experiences.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’re an extremely hard worker – you’re dependable, determined, and diligent. But sometimes being a hard worker means you take on too many things at once, and then you end up dropping the ball on several of your promises. As motivated as you are by success, wealth, and improvement, you need to make sure you’re putting 100% of your effort into everything you do, instead of spreading yourself too thin and only giving 20% or 30% of your effort to projects that turn out poorly and therefore cause you to feel frustrated and disappointed in yourself. Focus on doing a few things incredibly well, rather than doing a mediocre job on dozens of projects.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Your life has gotten to be too routine, too predictable, and too “blah.” You feel inspired and alive when you’re constantly being stimulated – by meeting interesting people, by putting effort into your relationships, by reading and learning and discovering new music and movies. You need to make sure you’re still taking time out of your busy day to try new things, go to new restaurants, take on new hobbies, try new classes, etc. Don’t let yourself feel stifled by the mundanity that can come with adulthood. That’s what’s bringing you down.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
The most important thing to you is your relationships with your loved ones – friends, family, a partner, even coworkers. You’re a very selfless and empathetic person, and sometimes that means you can end up attracting manipulative and selfish ‘friends’ who disguise these traits as loneliness or sadness. What you need to do is focus your energy on the people who give you as much as you give to them. Otherwise, you’re going to be doling out your love, energy, and kindness to people who are only going to suck it up into a black hole, instead of taking it and multiplying it and continuing to spread it along with you.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
You greatly value passion, the arts, your imagination, and originality. But your creativity can also be stifled and in constant conflict with your tendency towards laziness and passivity. You’re only truly happy, satisified, and inspired when you’re constantly creating art and making things and exploring your own artistic tendencies. So as tempting as it is to sit on the couch after work and watch mindless tv for hours, you need to remember that that will only provide you with short-term satisfaction. The easiest way to wake yourself up and begin to feel a spark again is to force yourself to start creating! The more diligent you become about it, the more natural it will feel and the happier you will be.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
You love working hard, getting things done, and expanding your intelligence. But your obsession with perfection and your instinct to be critical towards yourself constantly gets in the way. You convince yourself that you’re being practical and analytical, but really what you’re doing is pushing yourself towards resenting the type of work that you actually love deep down. What you need to do is rediscover the balance between work and play, and learn how to give yourself a break and force yourself to enjoy some time off, so that work and your hobbies and any of your other commitments can feel refreshing and inspiring to you again, instead of tedious and draining.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
You have to stop moving from thing to thing to thing. Your curiosity and thirst for exploring new ideas can be a wonderful thing, unless you take it to the point of being indecisive and flaky with everything that you try. What you need to understand is that even the type of thing you initially love and are fascinated by is eventually going to get hard and challenging – and sometimes you’re not going to be good at it. But instead of moving on to the next shiny object, you need to put your time, energy, and focus into something that matters to you, even if it’s difficult in the moment. Once you start learning to work through adversity, you’ll develop a passion and an interest in your projects that goes so much deeper than surface level. And then you’ll realize it’s a thousand times more satisfying than that initial high of discovering something new and exciting.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
You’re spending too much time around passive people, or at least, you’re looking at the way they act and assuming you should do the same thing. It’s fine to have passive friends, and it doesn’t mean you need to ‘drop’ them and walk away. But you do need to learn that the way you handle yourself can (and at times, should) be different from the way your friends handle themselves. If you’re spending too many hours bingewatching shows and ordering takeout and doing nothing, you need to get moving again. Put some more time and energy back into one of your bigger passions. Put in a little more effort at work. Get up early. Get some sort of exercise, even if it’s walking. Learn, read. Keep up with the news. Just remember that even if you have friends who have fallen into a mundane routine, it doesn’t mean you have to follow suit.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You love change, you love achieving your goals, you always try to see the glass as half full. But sometimes this leads to you assuming that things will take care of themselves, instead of taking your life into your own hands and deciding for yourself what it is that you actually want, instead of saying “whatever happens, happens.” You need to start going after what you truly desire again – to travel, to spend time around people that inspire you, to learn about things outside of the little bubble that you live in. Stop letting life happen to you, and instead, decide what you want to happen in your life. Being optimistic and being proactive are not mutually exclusive things.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
You assume that you have to make a choice between being being a hard-working and successful person, or being happy and content. When in reality, you can absolutely be both, and that if you do it the right way, you can find a ton of joy, satisfaction, and contentment from a job well done. For you it’s less about big life changes and more about learning how to let go and enjoy the process of the things you are already doing. You’re a smart person and you’re good at what you do – so just trust that you’ll get things done, and figure out a way in the meantime to enjoy the experience and reward yourself with relaxation, time with friends, and even some material pleasures while you’re on your path to success.
(January 21st to February 18th)
You’re so passionate and fired up about so many important issues, and spending your time working for causes that truly matter to you is a great way to live your life. But sometimes you get so focused on what you’re doing that you forget to take some time to recharge yourself. You often confuse “relaxation” and “recharging your batteries” with being lazy or passive or useless. But what you need to remember, if you’re going to have enough energy and inspiration to keep going on your path, is that you need to take care of your mental self and give your mind a rest, the same way that you take care of your body and your physical self.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You’re an incredibly compassionate, curious, and open person, which for the most part, is great. But it’s also lead you to be overly trusting with the wrong sorts of people, and when you get into a situation where you’re being treated poorly by someone, you tend to just assume you deserve it and that you got yourself into this mess, rather than taking the reins and deciding that you deserve to be treated better than this. And it not only applies to people – it applies to your work, your health, and your overall happiness. You need to stop settling and accepting mediocrity, and instead be a little more selfish and go after what makes you happy. It doesn’t mean you have to stop being compassionate and giving and warm. It just means you have to be as kind to yourself as you are to others.
