"The Governor paused and looked reflectively over at Bond. He said: "You're not married, but I think it's the same with all relationships between a man and a woman. They can survive anything so long as some kind of basic humanity exists between the two people. When all kindness has gone, when one person obviously and sincerely doesn't care if the other is alive or dead, then it's just no good. That particular insult to the ego - worse, to the instinct of self-preservation - can never be forgiven. I've noticed this in hundreds of marriages. I've seen flagrant infidelities patched up, I've seen crimes and even murder forgiven by the other party, let alone bankruptcy and every other form of social crime. Incurable disease, blindness, disaster - all these can be overcome. But never the death of common humanity in one of the partners. I've thought about this and I've invented a rather high-sounding title for this basic factor in human relations. I have called it the Law of the Quantum of Solace."
Bond said: "That's a splendid name for it. Its certainly impressive enough. And of course I see what you mean. I should say you're absolutely right. Quantum of Solace- the amount of comfort. Yes, I suppose you could say that all love and friendship is based in the end on that. Human beings are very insecure. When the other person not only makes you feel insecure but actually seems to want to destroy you, its obviously the end. The Quantum of Solace stands at zero. You've got to get away to save yourself."
'Ian Flemings collection of short stories' To everyone reading out there that I've come across..the bloggers, the writers and the people in our daily existence who've expressed their trials and tribulations..Sometimes the unforgivable mightbe forgiven..but it won't ever be forgotten. It's insignificant what the other side likes to believe, wants to think or what they try to justify to you. Take the moral high ground my joie de vivre loving readers, and take heart. Living well is the best revenge.
August 25th sees the launch of Mariah's new album :D !! I cant waittttt! Here's the new single that just released today, aptly named 'Obsessed'.
Diva trumped the rapper Eminem yet again, (after her song 'Clown' that appeared in her Charmbracelet album), for his hideous new song that dissed her husband and half of Hollywood that he recently released..either way the vocals are new, the tone of her lyrics are stronger than the last time and it looks like something that will grow on you, but for now, who cares lol its Mariah.
Also Whitney houston is also releasing a new album this year, and a slew of my fave artists, so this winter looks like it's gearing up to be accompanied by a fabulous soundtrack :)
Queen Fi's birthday came up this weekend and I decided to give her the BubblySpecial :)
So we packed our Choos and Chanels and set off for the perfect escape..
From cupcakes and candles..summery balloons and roses all over our private terrace and of course my bubbly playlists, it was definitely a weekend to remember..we sat with our favourite friends (Mousie I missed you there xx) and laughed the weekend away underneath the stars, following a luscious day before with Fi at the spa where we unwinded the week's tension and melted under utterly blissful therapeutic hands, to be buffed to perfection and massaged to the point where we felt like we were floating..we're still literally glowing.
Dubai is one of those magical escapes that always holds such good memories for me..every time I go it just keeps getting better, more relaxing and definitely more bubbly.
She still hasn't told me what her wish was when she blew out the candles lol..Fi when you read this, I hope it comes true and I love you more than anything in this whole wide world..Im gonna sign out right now to find her and give her a big hug lol.
To sisters and friends (especially you M)..where would we be without them?
Yes one of my guilty pleasures is immersing myself in a good Betty and Veronica comic on an afternoon when reality and life would just.need.a.break. Like most of you they were fun beach reads when we were all in high school..but I kept reading in college to escape from biochem exams and once in a while when I pick up my monthly Vogue, I cant resist those two..they take me back to happier days of carefree teenage fun. Betty the blonde straight A student known for her sweetness and perfect brownie baking skills, always being placed on the back burner for frenemy Veronica Lodge, daddys little fashionista with attitude and the most luscious bedrooms ever created in comic history, when it came to fighting for Archies affections. This August apparently with rumours swirling of a proposal to Veronica as Betty walks in, I wonder..is it true? Will 68 years of the Riverdale gang be over after this or will it continue with them no longer being 17? Will Freckle face actually marry Veronica or will Betty finally land her love of her life? I cant wait to find out xD
I love peaceful nights..I love the world when its asleep and Im submerged in the privacy of my thoughts...set them free and revel in the calmness that envelopes...late nights and parisian music...parisian anything...Ive always loved how a whole nation can live their lives in the pursuit of pleasure and lifes little luxuries...not a care in the world they throw away their inhibitions and live life to the fullest experiencing and savoring every single delicious moment...what a life to lead...what memories to look back on when you sit years ahead.. once more enjoying another soothing night..
Here are my memoirs..
