Cake in the Middle of the Road

Posted by Dalene on Sunday, May 9, 2010

Accidents Happen. They just do. The only problem with that is that sometimes accidents just happen at the WRONG time! Often the last thing that you would want to go wrong, usually DOES go wrong. Good ol’ Murphy’s Law!

Don’t worry, you’re not alone, bad things happen to good people around the world everyday! Here are some unfortunate occurrences which happened to others.

Public Service Announcements

Posted by Dalene on Sunday, May 2, 2010

Creativity + Creating Awareness = Success?

I love the fact that people and organisations are using their creativity for a good cause. A good public service announcement gets your attention. But then what? So they managed to get your attention, but what are going to do with it? A good public service announcement isn't a great public service announcement.

Rape. Child Abuse. Lung Cancer. O...

It’s a poor idea to lie to yourself

Posted by Dalene on Saturday, May 1, 2010 In : Fashion 

Innocent people get hurt. Millions of people are emotionally scarred, millions of eyeballs will never be the same again. Images of terror burned into the subconscious of many an unsuspecting bystander.

See the truth for what it is. Stop lying to yourself. It - just - doesn’t - FIT - you.

For yonks, the efforts of women’s magazines and even dedicated television channels (The Style Ne...

The sound of one hand clapping

Posted by Dalene on Sunday, April 25, 2010

What exactly does 'the sound of one hand clapping' sound like? I imagine it to be something like this:

Smack. "Ouch".

There are many differentiations - pretty much any sound made by a hand connecting loudly with someone's face... and then, of course, the yelp of pain coming from the slapee*.

*Daleneville Dictionary Definition: ‘slapee’ (noun) the person on the receiving end of ...

The Real Investment - Cluetrain Manifesto Thesis

Posted by Dalene on Sunday, April 25, 2010 In : Opinion 

"Maybe you’re impressing your investors. Maybe you’re impressing Wall Street. You’re not impressing us." - No. 69 The Cluetrain Manifesto thesis.

An organisation’s first priority? The bottom line. The more investors they get, the more money they make. It's pure greed.

They are ignoring the market by only aiming to impress investors. One message, one mission, one tactic.

We turn ...

Not all who wander are lost

Posted by Dalene on Thursday, April 15, 2010 In : Creative 

Travelling the world with purpose in mind,

A mission for growth and learning to find.

Zest for life, eager to explore,

Open minded and yearning for more.

Mind like sponge, heart like glue

Worldly appreciation finding you.

Guided by whim, unafraid to discover,

Curiosity affair, the unknown is your lover.

Nothing to fear, no emotional cost

True to belief: not all who wander are l...

Dream big

Posted by Dalene on Thursday, April 15, 2010 In : Inspirational 

After an exhausting day of, well, just about everything, there is always one sweet sanctuary you turn to. Sleep glorious sleep. There are few things better than finding that perfect position conducive to heavenly sleep. Wrapped up, snug in your blankie, your head pressed in the perfect position on your pillow: ready for your bed to swallow you whole as you drift into dreamland.

How do you step from a 100ft pole?

Posted by Dalene on Saturday, April 10, 2010 In : Inspirational 

Excuses excuses excuses. All the time. Why we can’t do this or why we won’t do that. Excuses are the propellers that drive your hand to wave opportunity goodbye. Courage vs stupidity. The trick is learning to tell the difference.

I am sure I can speak for the majority when I say that we try to live our lives relatively dumbass free. We understand that having no previous skateboard ...
