The End

20 May

Viewfromtheside’s theme this week is The End, given our impending doom tomorrow (which confuses me, because it’s not 2012 yet).

Some people are quite frightened by all the doomsayers.  I’m not worried because Christ said, ‘No one knows the day or the hour’, so you can be as specific as you like: I’m still watching Dr Who tomorrow.

I thought you might like to see my own version of the horror story that is ‘The End’; I came across this photo yesterday:

I was reminded of two things, which I will tell you after I have first insisted that I am not a body-hating miserable specimen of a woman, but a chubby lass who eats too much and exercises too little; I am well aware that the solution is in my own hands:

  1. One of my tasks is to lose a little weight; I haven’t made any effort in that area yet.  Maltesers act as a siren’s song, I’m afraid.  Guess I’ll have to stop <gasp> buying them.
  2. A scene from Love Actually, when the PM’s assistant talks of his love interest as having ‘a pretty sizeable a**e.’  It’s nice to know I could be in the movies.

And the silver lining, of course, is that when The End really does come, if I’m one of the survivors, I’ll have plenty of body fat to live off.  I bet you all wish you had a body like mine, now, don’t you?

    I have an idea… Can you get hubby to drop you and doggy about 5 kms from home in the car and then you walk the dog back ? Do at least several times per week and the kilos will start to shift, (and your dog will love you forever)

      That is a good idea but he won’t do it: he likes me to take safe walks. I could do the same walk five times, of course. But we both know that’s not going to happen, don’t we?

    You’re not fat – you’re simply well covered.

    A propos the end, there’s a more positive prompt at We Write Poems, to write about how it all started. I have written 2 weird poems about the Creation, but it has to be more cheerful than Armageddon.

    I advise more shovelling (and not of Malt*sers)

    What the heck, I’ll see you later and I’ll bring Merlot and Maltesers.

    This really isn’t even fair. No one looks good from that angle.


    • Tilly Bud May 21, 2011 at 10:04 #

      Trust me: there’s no way that looks good from any angle 🙂

    Loved your post as I have an ample “end”

    Please let me know the time that Cindy will be coming by so that I might schedule my flight since I would love to join the two of you in implementing that solution.;-)

    Good contribution to the weekend theme . . . I’ve decided to wait until the 22nd (if it arrives) to post mine.

    In the meantime, I’m going to over indulge on all good things in life. Just in case.

    I’m in a far better situation. I’ll be able to live of the stores for a long time.

    I guess we’ll all see or won’t see? won’t we?

    Did you see the program last weekend (?Friday) about the diet swap between an anorexic nurse and a larger lady? Very interesting


    • Tilly Bud May 21, 2011 at 10:20 #

      No, I didn’t. For the most part, my diet is healthy: homecooked, balanced meals, loadsa veg, few fizzy drinks, lots of water…it’s the crisps and sweets that kill me. 🙂

        So frustrating isn’t it?

    A brilliant and accomplished end, Tilly. LOVE this interpretation of Sidey’s theme.

    Ha ha – a brilliant post Tilly 😀 xx

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
