Goosebumps Sunday

Just saw this on Guardian UK’s football section and I had goosebumps tingling all over my arms the minute Prince started singing. Ian McCourt was right. It’d be a good song to dance in my underpants to … would be even better if it was raining out there now. Not that I’m in my underpants getting ready to dance or anything, but maybe you’d be inspired:

‘If there is a better song out there than Purple Rain to dance around the house to in your underpants, then I haven’t heard it. Not that I do that … anymore *awkward pause* Just listen to the song.’ — Ian McCourt

Now you watch it and feel those goosebumps too. A classic song is always a wonderful way to end a lovely Sunday!

But if you really want to get major goosebumps, you should attend a love football match and sit at the home end to soak up the atmosphere and energy IRL! I recently watched a YouTube video of around 60,000 really passionate Napoli football fans chanting their latest hero and it was AMAZING. I felt like I was there with them and I could feel their passion radiating through the screen. I was won over that night and I thought it must really be the best feeling in the whole world if I were a star footballer and had so many adoring fans showing their support. Ooh, I’m re-watching the video and I’m getting goosebumps again!

Also, today is my dog’s birthday. He turns two and I’m off to give him a squishy hug, which really annoys him, because he is usually asleep when I disturb him. Hehe. According to the Internet, my dog is either 13/14 years old in human terms! Wow, Milo is a teenager and yet he still looks like an adorable baby boy (in my eyes). He’s the reason why I am capable of giving unconditional love. I know this to be true, because every time I walk past Milo in his “turkey legs” pose, my heart sings with joy at how cute he is.

Sunday secrets I relate to

One of the things I enjoy doing on Sunday (or early Monday morning like 1am) is visiting the PostSecret website and looking through the secrets chosen for the week.

This has been my weekly routine ever since I met her and realise that she loves PostSecret too. Maybe it’s because I tried sending a secret in for her too (via a very expensive express post) and it didn’t get picked. Bummer. So I’m secretly hoping it will appear one day?

Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I get a little sad, and sometimes I can relate to them… Like the secrets posted on 26 August 2012… There were two that immediately stood out for me tonight.

Hahaha, I remember the times when we Skyped and all we could keep looking at was ourselves on screen and admiring how we looked. I miss those times when we Skyped all the time, have our meals together, go to bed together, share our day together, watch TV together, check out each other’s outfit for the day. I miss how you’d Skype me the minute you reach your hotel room. I’d be at work in the mornings and you’d be disturbing me, trying to make me laugh out loud. And I’d spend my lunch hour talking to you until you got changed and ready to nap after your long flight. Or I’d rush home after work so I could talk to you when you come back from shopping, have your dinner and go to bed. All those late nights and long conversations. Good times.

Hahaha! This pic made me chuckle because I know how sensitive you are about your follicles. And how you’d always tell me I’m so lucky for being relatively hairless. And how I’d always tell you I’d accept you for who you are, even if you’re hairy (which you kinda are. LOL!) because…

The truth is I could spend all day looking at you and I’d be content.
