10 Guilty Pleasures.

I feel I have far too many guilty pleasures that should cease to be guilty.

So here is a list of things I secretly like, that will henceforth, no longer be a secret.

1)Miranda. - The tv show, the woman. Her awkward, cringeworthy, sometimes almost Mr Bean-esque moments just make me giggle, I loved and still love Mr Bean, and that is no secret, and so neither is Miranda. The Tv Series itself, sadly, I must admit, reminds me of a over dramatised version of my own life. The way she seems to be surrounded by either absolute fools, the occasional genuine friend, or someone exceedingly attractive and the way she copes with those people, reminds me of myself. I'm lucky enough to have friends that do just accept who and what I seem to be, unlike Miranda, whose friends and family are constantly trying to change her, often for the worse. But I do often find myself surrounded by idiots, or creepy motherfuckers, and if not those, then just rarely, I see someone attractive, and I do exactly as she does.

Fuck it up.

We are both in essence, fucking ridiculous, with a sense of humour that only we seem to laugh at, we never fail to embarrass ourselves or find ourselves in stupid scenarios, and we cannot flirt without driving everyone within a 90 mile radius far, far away.

2)Lady Gaga - I give no fucks. I like her music, i'm not a 'little monster' as it were, just because I think I missed that fandom bandwagon, and yeah, whilst I know that she used weirdness as a way of jumping into the public eye almost overnight, I also know that an idiot can't do that, and she manipulated the media into sky-rocketing her into fame. For that I think she's got the right idea as an artist who wants to be heard. I think her music is great, songs like Beautiful, Dirty, Rich. are so catchy that I have to restrain myself from dancing on the bus. So there. I love her. Fuck the police.

3) Amy and Rory Pond/Rory Constantly Dying/The Christmas Who Episode 2011. - I love Amy and Rory, I love Karen and Arthur too. I love their relationship on the show, and if it was up to me, they would be leaving happily, not in some horrifically tragic way like Moffat has trolled us with hints of. (Fuck you Moffat you little bitch.)  I find it hilarious that Rory constantly died, it was just funny, admittedly, if it led to nothing in the plot line, it was a tad weak. But it was still so funny when you recounted that he died about 8 times.

Also, even though everyone else hates it and says that the plot was shit, The Doctor's behaviour and actions were shit, the other actors were shit, and that the only good thing was Bill Bailey cameo (which i agree, was WAY too short, though i did love the cameo of the Mother who is also the Mum in Outnumbered! A brilliant show with an equally brilliant cast, especially that little girl, man she is going to go places when she grows up.) i found the whole episode completely ridiculous in a good way. I didn't care too much to ponder or think about logic. IT'S FUCKING CHRISTMAS. WHO NEEDS LOGIC. IF SHE WANTS TO FLY HER HUSBAND OUT OF A STORM USING A FUCKING GIANT TREE CASTLE THINGY. FUCK IT. WHY NOT. IT'S CHRISTMAS. DO WHAT YOU LIKE.

I found it to be nice. I enjoyed the nod to Narnia, I liked the cast, the set, the music, the storyline. Not a single fuck was given that day.

4)Amy Winehouse (before she was dead. No... for real.) - A lot of people say "OH I LIKED THEM BEFORE THEY DIED." But really... i did! Honestly! Don't get me wrong I wasn't a die hard fan, but i thought she had the most fantastic voice, and i was sad that she was the way she was, and she was recovering, but i think she either relapsed and OD'd by mistake, or her body just collapsed from the previous damage... I liked her so much, and i was so sad when she died, and i will admit, however, that i got more into her since she died, but I always liked her, and i still like her, and she's still great, and yeah, she did still take drugs, and i'm not romanticising her life, i'm just saying that i really love her, cause i do.

5) Counting calories.

I know it's something people tell you not to do because it leads to eat disorders.

But i totally love seeing how much everything has, what's good for you, what's bad for you, realising something you love has hardly anything in them, and then proceeding to eat a shit ton of that thing, or realising some of your smaller activities burn a shit ton. I don't even care, it's just fun to log and count and feel you've achieved if you've burned so much in a day, especially without realising! Brilliant (:

6) Irish accents. - Oh god... mfft. Nuff said.


8)Gotye - Yes, i found out about him from Somebody That I Used To Know, which is a fantastic song, but his other songs are brilliant too! Though i do seem to feel a lot of people in the room roll their eyes when i say that I like Gotye, though i've no idea why... perhaps it's because he's quite current, and nowerdays if it's in the charts, it's shite.

9)Crunchy Nut Clusters - They might be completely pricey as fuck, but i could eat a whole box dry or with milk. The adverts are right. They are ludicrously tasty. I love them SO much. You've got NO idea. bavsidavsda

10)Well dressed men, tall men, musicians, men who look like noel fielding, noel fielding, men who look like 1980's rockstars, well spoken men, ginger men, funny men, emotionally open men, thespian men, smart men, men with green eyes.

These are all the people i find attractive.

Especially Noel Fielding.

"Yes! Yes, it's me! You've got a live one!"

Hello! It's been a little while, hasn't it?!

Sorry to have my last post leave this blog on such a downer! But, such things must be addressed.

Now before I can go into anything else... I simply must plug a movie that I recently watched... It's called Jack and Sarah, staring Richard E. Grant, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian Mckellen, among others... It's about a man named Jack, who becomes a single parent after his wife dies during childbirth... it may seem like a sad movie, but once you get past the initial weepy moments... it's a really moving and hilarious movie about his journey through parenthood and trying to look after this baby whilst managing a job, his parents, a homeless man called William and a nanny called Amy. It's just brilliant, his acting evokes every last emotion, it's simply fantastic.

Now that I have my endless love for Richard E Grant out of the way... we can proceed.

You may have noticed my blog has taken a rather Sherlockian tone! I felt that the wallpaper of 221b was just too good not to use! Besides, I fancied a change, the red was just too generic!

So recently... well... recently, I've had one interview at Lincoln University! Met two other people from Leicester there, which I was surprised about, there was one guy who was just plain lovely! Bless the lot of them I kept on rabbiting about panto! The interview went so well though, all the staff were lovely and very welcoming, it was just like having a chat! He said he was actually pretty impressed with me! Aha, but maybe he was being nice! :') We talked a little about my hobby toying with Make Up Artistry, and he said I'd do well in Lincoln, and in theatre, as they are in demand! I did not know that, so I will get working on that!!

I'm so ready to reinvent myself... and I do it every time I realise i'm unhappy with my life... I did it in year 8, but it kind of flopped... then I did it again in year 10/11, and it really worked, and now, once again, Hayley's got to take a leaf out of The Doctors book and give herself a good regeneration, gotta sort myself out, start over, new body, new clothes, new attitude, new start, it's all going uphill from here!

I think it's since i've taken out some of the more negative parts of my life away, that i've realised the impact they were having, and how much they were bringing me down... but now I feel much more able... but i'm not done yet, all this stuff, it's still midway through it's point of changing, it's like, i'm still pretty out of shape, i've only just started my calorie challenge, i've not finished sorting out my wardrobe, i'm midway through uni stuff, i'm at a midpoint in all my hobbies...

But imagine how badass i'm going to be at the end of the tunnel.

I've got so much to look forward to.

But first.

A shower!

It's been lovely!

Here's a sneak peek at an outfit I created whilst looking through pictures of androgynous people and outfits...

Sorry for the slightly expressionless face... I was so tired that day! I usually pair this outfit with some two tone dainty style brogues, in light and dark brown! Though if you want to put a bit more of a casual spin on it, it could also be put with Red Converse and Red Braces to keep the ol' trousers up. Might give it a bit of a 10th Doctor, smart yet casual look.

I realised that I really do love androgyny so much, and apparently i've always been that way from birth, because when I was a baby, people used to think I was a boy xD Hayley Cooper; The Confuser since 1994.
