Tips for the ladies in year 2008
1. Aspire to be Barbie – the bitch has everything.
2. If the shoe fits – buy one in every colour..
3. Take life with a pinch of salt… A wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.
4. In need of a support group? – Cocktail hour with the girls!
5. Go on the 30 day diet. (I’m on it and so far I’ve lost 15 days).
6. When life gets you down – just put on your big girl knickers and deal with it.
7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just your personality.
8. I know I’m in my own little world, but it’s ok. They know me here..
9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.
10. Don’t get your knickers in a knot, it solves nothing; and makes you walk funny.
11. When life gives you lemons in 2008 – turn it into lemonade then mix it with vodka.
12. Remember every good looking; sweet, single male is someone else’s ex-boyfriend!
Now smile and send to any girl wasting time at work, suffering from a hangover, or just suffering from work, that might need a reason to smile!
