Music and Men

The other day I was in my car driving for about an hour with the radio on. On the radio the station was going though a variety of songs from the last few years, when the realisation hit that there was a number of songs that linked to my past. To be more precise they linked to men of my past.

You see memories are a funny thing. When they are created they can be linked to the silliest things like a certain scent or a location…but for me it seems to be music. I listen to music a lot. So when I listen to certain songs, sometimes the lyrics seem to fit the current situation perfectly and therefore the song then links to that person…or it could just be a case that the song was popular at that time and the radio played it constantly while I was around them. 

Anyway like songs, men come and go through life. I guess it just depends if they turn out to be a one hit wonder or a classic that never gets old. But no matter what, when a certain song from the past hits my ears, the memories will play over in my mind of my relationship with that person. In some ways it’s good, and in some ways its bad…but memories are memories. Sometimes it’s nice to look back at what once was…

I wonder if anyone reading this knows their song…heck I wonder what songs people would link to me!

The Time I Made A Joke…

You know how sometimes when your daydreaming, you slip into a deep place right in the back of your mind. For example the time I was looking at the ants on the floor and It spiralled into a thought that maybe we are just like ants. And as I’m looking down on them now, there’s people/things looking down on us…a bit like a mirror in a mirror, creating a continuous image getting smaller and smaller. So basically I was thinking about a higher intelligence (like aliens) which I know is possible but it’s also completely random for a Tuesday afternoon…I guess that’s what work does to us.

Anyway, so this was one of those times…only this time I was thinking about balls. Guys balls to be exact or testicles if you will. So getting to the point. I was thinking to myself, if guys have two balls…why aren’t they in individual bags? To which my brain then replied…’maybe they didn’t offer them two at the checkout’.

Yeaaahhhh I know, It’s bad. Shockingly bad. But I love them kind of jokes, dad jokes I call them. The wit I got from my dad of course didn’t help my cause. But you know I’ve come out a great person with a quick wit…even if like I say it is bad. So yeah that’s the joke I made. Copyright Natalie Oram. ✌🏼️

If you would like to share my joke to any of your male friends or family I have set up a scenario and wording for the joke below.

Scenario: Lazing around on anyway of the week with said male friend/family.

Hey Ted…If guys have two balls…why is there only one bag?..Did they not offer you two at the checkout? Ba dum bum chush.

Happy Tuesday! 🙈

3 Celebrity Crushes

Throughout life we have a lot of people who catch our eye, and with celebrities in the limelight 24/7 crushes will always be found there. So let’s get started on my top 3 celebrity crushes!

First on the list is…Leonardo DiCaprio. Ever since I saw him in Romeo and Juliet he has been forever in my heart. And with time he has only improved in so many ways. Looks, wisdom, power, and influence.

The second man in my life is Chris Evans. Any film he has been in, he’s just so cheeky. Not another teen movie, What’s your number, Captain America, Fantastic Four, Cellular. All cheeky characters, with charm as well of course…and a body to die for.

Last but definitely not least we have Ian Harding. Now I’ve only just started watching Pretty Little Liars after all of the hype about it, and there is some hot guys in it. But out of the all Ian Harding aka Mr Fitz is the one that’s caught my eye the most. I’m not sure if it’s his innocence, his sense of style or just his face. Either way he’s on the list.
