Factual Friday: I can, I will, I won’t.

6comments Permalink 1

At the Temple we don’t like to use negatives, like ‘I can’t cook,’ we’d much rather look at the positive and say ‘I’m great at eating.’  Another example would be saying “I have no fashion sense and can’t coordinate my clothing,’ instead I would say I love the color black as it goes with all the other black things I have, black is truly a great look.  However there are times we just have to admit that some things are a certain, and we don’t believe this is  negative but rather a chance to embrace the obvious. So here we present Factual Friday.

Things I am certain will never happen.

  • I will never appear on Masterchef, My Kitchen Rules, Iron Chef,  The Voice, X-Factor, or any other reality show that requires any level of cooking or musical talent.
  • I will never be the Prime Minister of Australia.
  • I will never be a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
  • I will never play  in the Soccer World Cup, Super Bowl or AFL Grand Final.
  • I will never take a liking to oysters, anchovies, jelly or yoghurt.
  • I will never be a tightrope walker and if I ever did I would never do it across Niagara Falls
  • I will never smile at a crocodile because they freak me out.
  • I will never believe that anyone is more handsome than Micko the Temple Guru.  Xxx
  • I will never grow a tail.

We also take time out everyday to be thankful for all we have. Here’s my list.

  • I am thankful for the Temple Guru, (Micko) and our son Lebron and my stepson Jordan. (and the whole rest of my family and friends)
  • I am thankful that I am warm and safe in my home each night with food to fill my belly.
  • I am thankful that  I am having so much fun creating all these ridiculous scenarios in Tamzen Temple and to be getting great feedback from my lovely followers through emails and comments.
  • I am thankful for all the exciting possibilities that await me.

So thanks to all. I am absolutely so lucky to have you all follow me here on my blog, I truly cannot believe how fast my audience here is growing. (also thanks to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest followers)

I will do my best to keep you entertained and would love to hear more from you in the comments section and I’d love to hear about you and any great stories or ideas that you may want to see here at the Temple.  (tamzentemple@gmail.com or private message me on Facebook)

Ommm and peace from the Temple.


PS What are you absolutely certain of? Keep scrolling down and comment as I would love to know on this factual Friday.

    Humor is best to begin any ‘preweekend.’ I consider myself a horrid cook and I’m domestically challenged in many respects. Your profound expression, “I’m great at eating” is one I shall cherish…
    Thank you for sharing smiles…

      Thanks AnnMarie. I only say it because it is absolutely true. Keep looking at the positives and have a great weekend. And any of my lovely readers should pop on over to you to say g’day. Xx

    Your blog is wildly original and funny. Love your format and your breezy style. Are you sure you don’t have a shot at being prime minister of Australia? BTW: thanks for stopping by my blog.

      It’s not that I don’t have a shot, I just don’t want the job. There’s already been one redhead there and I wanted to be the first one. Although if you’re PM of NZ we could work together and make our countries laugh. And thanks. 🙂

    Yogurt? Really? That’s interesting… Me, I will never ever like peanut butter no matter how many different brands of the stuff is thrown my way.
    I love your blog! It’s insanely funny 🙂

      Thank you so much. We’re definitely going to pop over to yours (have followed) to see what the bungling housewife is doing. I identify with your name well which is what drew me in and the great content kept us there. We love being insanely anything so you’ve made our day. 🙂
