I'm updating my music collection a fair bit at the moment. I have some definite absolute favourite songs. I can't decide on the order though and occasionally a new song will pop up. Here are Hayley Bash's favourite songs.

To be with you - Mr Big (my oldest fave)
Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off - Panic At The Disco
So Cold - Breaking Benjamin
Diary of Jane (acoustic) Breaking Benjamin
The Science Of Selling Yourself Short - Less Than Jake
Adam's Song - Blink 182 (probs second oldest)
Face down - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
The only difference between martyrdom and suicide is press coverage - Panic At The Disco
Sugar we're going down - Fallout Boy
Farewell Rocketship - Children Collide (newish)
The world is black - Good Charlotte
Motivation Proclomation - Good Charlotte
Your Guardian Angel - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (newish)
Black Cat - Mayday Parade
The ghosts of you and me - Less Than Jake
My Completness - Thirsty Merc
Cry me a river - Justin Timberlake
Ocean avenue - Yellowcard
Numb/Encore - Linkin Park / Jay Z

That's all I can think of for now. I definitely have a second rung of favourite songs though, which would include more Less Than Jake, Breaking Benjamin, some Simple Plan, more Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Blink 182...

So since I'm actually trying to broaden my musical horizons a little for once (no brand new ground breaking genres or anything, baby steps.. and I am actually enjoying it! ... maybe the list will grow.

If you think you'd like some new music to get into, try last.fm
You type in a band/artist you like and it plays similar artists. I've found some great new bands to listen to from there.

I am very lucky to have Nick and Jorja. I love them both sooooo much.
Look how different I am from the two of them. They are blonde and tanned whilst I am clearly not, but that's ok.

Check out Nick's beard, he's growing one for the first time he reckons. (hopefully first and last time!)

Some people say Nick and I are SO alike, whilst others ask if he's my boyfriend?? HAHA.
Meanwhile Jorja is just a little stunner and the coolest kid too.
And also, Nick is a giant. And also, my hair is getting so looooooooooooong woo hoo.

Today I had a quick chat to someone who works near me. We have chatted often over the 3 years I've worked there. She's lovely. I said I wasn't having any time off soon as I'm saving my leave for my trip to America/UK. She asked if my boyfriend was coming with me.

It's like my world stops for a second.
Don't ask me that.
Don't make me say it.

'He actually passed away'

It's not natural saying that, it doesn't even feel real, or even close to ok.

This will probably happen many times, but it's the first time I've had it really as yet.

It's hard to explain, because I just can't. Not in a few minutes. Not ever really.

I miss my boy.

I know I'm biased, but seriously, how good looking is he?

By the way

129 days until take off.

ooooohh yeaaaah.


i am unnaturally obsessed with Cadbury's new Bubbly Bar. The mint one.
It is SO yummy. I compared with it with Aero. (which it is blatantly copied from ,obviously)

And Bubbly just came out on top, hands down. It is so great. I will eventually get over it, I hope. Can't be good for me. I was similarly obsessed with Cadbury's mint flake - so yum. The only real mint things I like but both so amazing.
I tried to find a picture, but cadbury are pimping it out hardcore, so you should find it pretty easily at a servo/supermarket if you feel like giving it a whirl. Be careful. And if you do try it, let me know what you think!

Ah bubbly. About to have my last piece now. Although there is another bar in my room somewhere. I AM OUT OF CONTROL.

Random Acts Of Kindness

If you could name one small gesture someone else has made that had a big impact on your lift, what would it be?

I wasn't sure I could think of anything that fit the question. Then I thought about how HARD life can be for me at the moment, and what little things people do to help me get through it.

All my wonderful work friends are very supporting and understanding.

Paul will always ask me if I want some lollies or chocolate if I'm not looking happy. He will run to the shop and get it for me immediately. I don't normally say yes, but just the thought and the commitment to running through the cold just to make me feel better for a tiny moment really warms my heart :)

So thanks Paul.
You still have short legs. :P

..a very cool website.
that is bad for me.
that I should resist.
I'm trying to save.
It is full of goodies I want to own.
I don't have enough cupboard space as it is.

Inspired Insanity.

I'm not always into wearing these kinda clothes, but I'm sooo attracted to them. I like bits and pieces. And I love the accessories. I'm a shoe and bag-aholic.

Ohhhh... to be able to shop and shop and shop!

When I was packing up stuff from our house, I found a new CD that Simon had bought.

Don't you fake it by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

We really, and I mean really, love their song 'Face Down' but we hadn't got much further than that. This album was the last thing Simon put on his Ipod, a couple of days before he died. (I only just figured this out.)

I've been listening to it for ages now. At first I just skipped between two songs 'Face Down' and 'Cat and Mouse' but I listen from start to finish now, in my car. 'Your Guardian Angel' is SUCH a good song also. These 3 have brought on some major tears. Which is fine. (very safe driving also)

So I just absolutely LOVE this album, and I thank Simon for bringing it into my life :)

It's funny how having good songs to listen to as you're driving makes things so much more bearable. I can listen to all the songs (even the three mentioned) now without crying (most of the time) - I have already come a long way, I can be a lot calmer about things - at least at the moment.

It's nice to think one of my coping strategies was given to me from Simon.

I love you, man

Just got back from seeing this movie. It was really funny. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel are so good and especially awesome together. Def recommend. (great in depth movie review self. I'm tired.)
