Postponed Indefinitely :(

Ok. This is very very annoying.  It seems that I need to have a series of procedures done over the next couple of months on my crock of a back and have to be really really careful about what I get up to for the foreseeable future, to make sure things don’t get worse.

Soooo….Because I think attempting Ru(i)n My Life in a half-arsed, I-can’t-do-anything-that-involves-standing-or-walking-for-long-periods type fashion….I have to postpone things. Indefinitely. I’m really annoyed about this cause I was so looking forward to it – I’ve had some excellent suggestions so far and I’m really sorry to those who put thought into them.

Sometimes you just have to admit defeat.  Making it to work and home again and the odd exertion is kind of all I can handle right now.

Watch this space though…I’m determined to do this eventually! Maybe during the summer when the weather might make things easier anyway.

Oh and if anyone else is crazy enough to take my place for the first round, they are quite welcome!


My Life Is In Your Hands

Posted in explanations on January 11, 2008 by becs

For one week, anyway. Hi there. Hello. You may know me from such places as UnbearablyLight. In a blog experiment of possible monumental stupidity, I have decided that my little blog audience are probably better at making decisions about my life than I am. So I’m letting them (that includes you since you’re presumably reading this) go ahead and do it. For one week only, provisionally scheduled from Monday the 4th to Sunday the 10th of February 2008, the power is yours.

As suggested here I will let you choose my food, my drink, what I watch, read, listen to, visit, view, etc. There are obviously limits – anything that I deem to be in bad taste or taking the piss altogether will be rejected. During the week in question, I will post questions about what I should do in either the form of a poll or I’ll open it up and ask for suggestions. When I carry out the tasks I will blog about it and post photographic evidence.

There is a caveat for anyone who has an order carried out – you will have to volunteer to do something good and nice for someone else. It will be all honour based and what you do can be up to you, but you have to say what it’s going to be. I will accept anything from making a cup of tea for someone to pledging money to charity.

Any further thoughts and suggestions on how I should do all this are welcome 🙂

Pleeease don’t be too evil!

Edit: Note change of date because I’m a bit injured at the minute.
