WTF Wednesday: Fairytales vs Reality

Hey my cherries and daggers!

So again, a terrible bloggers block has befallen me, but I thought I’d write something about fairytales once more. Basically I’m going to write about girls who seem to think that they have a Prince Charming waiting for them and for guys who tend to think that there’s some super hot supermodel Princess waiting for them.

With that picture right there I could end the blog, because that’s basically the point I’m trying to make.

Disney movies and Porn have made people so delusional about love and marriage and what to look for in a person, that some of us fussy people (ahem, not me, of course lol), tend to find fault in anything that moves unless they’re basically 100% perfect. Which means we’ll never be happy, because nobody and nothing is perfect.

Alright, I’ll make a bit of a confession here. I am probably the most full of shit person when it comes to dating. This here is my dating chart:

Anything less, then GTFO!!

But seriously? Who wants to date a nice, oil painting you can’t have a conversation with because he’s as dumb as a rock? Who wants to date a nerdy, nice guy who doesn’t take care of himself? And who wants to date a sexy, intelligent guy who can’t talk about anything but himself? See where I’m going with this?

Same with guys. I mean, I’m sure guys wouldn’t mind dating a hot girl if she couldn’t string a sentence together (lol), but are you really going to settle for a supermodel who’s amazing in bed but doesn’t know the recipe for making ice?

What about a girl who’s nice and clever, but looks more like an extra for Night of the Living Dead than someone you can be proud of to take home to your mother?

Or what about a girl who’s intelligent and sexy, but hell, all she wants to do is go out shopping and eat at expensive restaurants?

I. Rest. My. Case.

Well on that WTF Wednesday note, I’m outta here.

Have a fab Wednesday sweethearts!


Manic Monday: Once Upon a Time – a TV series

Good morning my cherries and daggers!

SO last night I was at a braai (South African for BBQ) that lasted up until midnight so I’m pretty tired for a Monday morning, no big deal though, I’ve had my coffees and Red Bulls and I’m good to go!

But it’s not all parties and parades in Cherry’s world, I do actually have some down time where all I wanna do is relax with my doggie Bubbles and my kitty Vicious, a cup of hot chocolate coffee and harddrive and just watch movies and series’ till I’m tired from them all.

So anyway, this blog is going to be about a show my sister introduced me to and it’s called;

Once Upon a Time…

If you know me, you’d know that I’m absolutely obsessed with fairy tales and Disney princes and princesses, so this show comes as no surprise.

It basically starts off with a really pissed off Evil Queen who puts a curse on everybody who lives in The Enchanted Forest (aka all the fairytale characters) and sends them to the real world where they have no idea what their real identities are to a town called Storybrooke.

The Queen’s main enemies are pretty little Snow White and Prince Charming who happen to give birth to the only person who can save the characters from being boring shrinks and accountants forever (no offence, being a fairytale character is just so much cooler).

Oh and somewhere in the mix is my favourite villian-slash-vigilante-slash-bad-guy-slash-good-guy Rumplestilskin who, in my opinion, just makes the show so much better!

So anyway the reason I’m telling you guys to watch this show is because apparently season 2 started airing on American television yesterday! So watch it and don’t tell me what happens until I can get it on DVD here in sunny South Africa.

Have a lovely Monday peeps!
