The Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast Club


beyond frustrated (and can’t go into the Details) so we looked around for some blog-ness-respite and found two delicious places to dream:

1. The Perfumed Dandy went to the coast and took such ever such nice pictures and, as befitting the nomenclature of his place-on-the-interweb – told us about the Fragrances that such images brought to Mind (which is awfully clever and Tremendously Chic actually).

2. And then we heard word of something MAGICAL called the The Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast Club

and so we’re going to join (if they’ll have us – so we’re posting our Responses below and adjusting our cloche hat and waiting patiently with our gloves on our lap outside the door while the Board deliberates).


Sandy over at the delicious place called “Another Lovely Day” sets out the Idea:

If you would like to be a member of the Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast Club, simply:

1) Make a list of six things you’ve basically given up on or that more often than not seem impossible/improbable.

2) Look at the list every morning before breakfast, “seeing” yourself being/doing/having each one.

Sandy has written her 6 impossible things if you scroll further down the page here:



without giving too many intimate details away ————-

1. How To Stay Sane In A cRaZY World becomes a best-seller in 2014 (when it comes out – because it wouldn’t be possible a moment before but we hope not too long after ;-)

2. We find a movie agent and he/she (or a gender warrior of both) sells all our movie screenplays (and do let it be someone who happens to like our literary agent in NYC because then they can Plot together because we’re a Tiny bit exhausted by doing all the Writing bit).

3. Our weight returns to pre-surgery (and – ahem – pre-cake-eating) levels of 2006 (without the drastic measures we took to get there Then – yes, we’re asking a Lot but you said Impossible made possible – voila)

4. Emerald gets published and a lot of teenagers get to say “blimey” (if they’re actually British or have a British-fetish) “that’s Exactly how I feel.”

5. A famous gallery owner sees our exhibition at ‘sNice and then buys a lot of work at our shop on Redbubble (yay! Australians!) and makes a decision to Launch teamgloria as a poster brand so regular people can have beautiful images (just like the Athena Posters we had on our bedroom wall when we were small – they enabled us to Dream Big – and here we are).

6. (ahem). something about Love. (no details). maybe. perhaps. at some point (cough).

We almost put down Really Impossible things like Time Travel, being the next Doctor Who (wouldn’t that be fun, we’d be ever so good at it), Living in Positano while making a film starring someone from another planet – we do think about these sorts of things.

But 1 – 6 feel impossible right now.

we had a frustrating late afternoon into evening (something with trying to put together a “talking head” thingy which was horrible and we Trashed the whole thing – Most Depressing) and to be honest, it really helped writing these 6 impossible things down and sending them out into the interweb by clicking……………Now.

  1. This is quite an intriguing idea. More lately, I’ve taken to turning around seemingly impossible things that could happen and making a goal of them. But now I think of it, there still might be some left…

    Yep. Most of them are about my immediate personality. Also, one about sleep patterns.

  2. Dearest Gloria
    I would go further than to say these things are possible… surely that are all probable!!
    On such grounds, you musty try harder and come up with six true impossibilities…. I believe they’ve said there will never be a lady Dr Who, so that’s a start.
    Though sad as The Dandy fancies the Doctor would look divine in a cloche hat.
    Oh and a jolly big thank you for placing The Dandy’s calling card on your mantelpiece as ’twere, he is most flattered and obliged in equal measure and is blushing like a debutante.
    Yours ever
    The Perfumed Dandy

    1. deciding on which scent to wear today made us think of you – a delicious thought – Obsession, Chloe by Chloe, Chanel No. 5 or something vanilla and fruity by Jo Malone.

      it’s easier to choose fragrance (for us) than to plot the rest of our life (sleepless nights – sighs)

  3. If it would make you feel better you could put together a list for me. I feel too weak to even try. Weak from the effort of form filling for Government requirements. Worked so hard and it wasn’t all that they wanted to know.

do say something - do :-)
