Hello Marys and Bloggers,
A couple of things today.

Firstly, for some unknown reason the song; "(If loving you is wrong,) I don't wanna be right", the Rod Stewart version, floated into my head this morning, AND WILL NOT GET OUT! For those of you who are unfamiliar, these are the lyrics;

If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right
If being right means being without you,
I'd rather live a wrongdoing life.
Your Mama and Daddy say it's a shame;
It's a downright disgrace
Long as I got you by my side,
I don't care what your people say.

Your friends tell you there's no future
In loving a married man/woman
If I can't see you when I want to,
I'll see you when I can.
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Am I wrong to fall so deeply inlove with with you
Knowing I gotta wife/husband and two little children
Depending on me too.
And am I wrong to hunger
For the gentleness of your touch,
Knowing I got somebody else at home
Who needs me just as much.

And are you wrong to fall in love
With a married man/woman
And am I wrong tring to hold on
To the best thing I ever had.
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right,
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

I don't wanna be right
If it means sleeping alone at night
I don't wanna be right
If it means coming home at night.
I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna never, never, never be right.

Ok, it's a bit unusual for me to be so perceptive and responsive to the emotions of others, but if this song has any relevance to anybody anywhere, PLEASE TAKE IT BACK! I want it out of my head. The only other possibility is that the song is a metaphor for my very destructive relationship with ....Food! ... I used to like this song.........

The other thing is, and I hate to admit this, but sometimes .......I stray........Yes, I'm sorry, but I read the blogs of other, non-Mary's. The other night I found a Blog of Note (yep, that's right, Capital Letters) called "Nurse Ratched's Place". This very clever lady is a nurse (yes, I know, no surprise there) living in the USA, who writes a rather ascerbic blog, covering various topics, but related to nursing. Today I went back through her archives, and found a blog entitled "Dying for Beauty". This was a lovely and sensitive piece about her involvement with a young lady who suffered from anorexia. Unfortunately, the young lady died. Ok, that's sad, you say. Well it certainly is. Tragic actually. But the thing that absolutely blew me away, and horrified me, was the insensitivity of the google ads at the bottom and on the sidebar. The 5 headings out of 7 were;
  • Lose 9lbs every 11 days....
  • Start losing weight today...
  • Fast, Easy Weightloss...
  • Lose 20kgs in 30 days....
  • Lose Weight fast....

The other 2 ads were for nursing jobs.........

I guess that counts as a rant, hey!!

Thanks for reading.

'Til next time,
Love, Bloggie xoxoxo
