“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.” — Mahatma Gandhi
This quote came to me in an email this morning, courtesy of Gala Darling’s Icing Transformation Challenge. It is a neat quote.
I’m not doing too well with my ITC resolutions. I did have a yummy salad for lunch yesterday but today I am having mini hotdogs and shoestring fries. It’s alright though, because I am making a huge and delicious salad for Lee and me to have with slow cookered ‘roast’ beef for dinner. Om nom nom.
I am home from work today using a day in Lieu from way back when I worked New Years. I have spent the morning being deliciously lazy and playing Rock Band.
Writing wise I am still doing awesomely now. It’s really funny how as I’ve got into a habit of writing more often and in greater volume I am not satisfied if I only write a couple of pages. Like this morning I filled up 3 A5 pages of notebook with new content and I am not even counting that as me doing writing today. I am going to make myself sit still for an hour after lunch and do more writing.
I also managed to operate the car lift and drove out to Nancy’s Embroidery for more quilt labels. I gave Seraph’s baby the quilt I made for him last night and although he didn’t say anything I think he was quite overcome with emotion. Well, there was a lot of squirming anyway.
If you want to see what it looks like, I put pictures up on my lj.
Rock Band wise we’re doing very well. Darth Fancy is an Internationally renowned band now, with successful gigs performed in Rome, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Paris. Our top songs are (from memory):
Run to the Hills – Iron Maiden
Maps – Yeah Yeah Yeahs (which I kick ass at with the singing)
More than a Feeling – Boston
Wanted (Dead or Alive) – Bon Jovie
We also got some new songs yesterday including Glados’ “Still Alive” which is a hilarious song from Portal which I love to pieces. We also got Weezer’s “El Scorcho” and “Perfect Drug” by NIN which I know backwards because of certain Triple J compilations I may have listened to endlessly for several years. I’m also very good at Blondie “Call Me”.
I’ve been taking my singer Lenore Goldfish on a solo tour because that way I get to practice and I also get money to buy her new clothes. This game mixes the Sims with Singstar in a way that is deeply dangerous for me.
