Here are the entries to the ‘Life is Just … competition. The rules were just to finish the phrase without being rude or swear!
Here are the entries:
LIFE IS OR LIFE IS JUST …
@VicPetit … an anagram of file …
@RoseEnglishUKauthor ‘Life is Just Rosy’
@EllaMarieR Full of Surprises’?
Eric Smith The other little point of note Diana, life’s a bowl of cherries. :))
Colin van Geffen Life is what happens while you’re making other plans – John Lennon
Steve Hudson My favourite ( from 1970 – hippy era)
“Life is but a beanstalk, man!”
I think the ‘but’ gives a rather existential twist to it. The lovely (Keswick Hall) man who coined it, unfortunately is no longer with us.
Alex Rychlewski There’s a classic French one, but it’s quite rude and pessimistic, so I’ll refrain smile emoticon.
Peter Arnold I also like hearing people come up with mixed metaphores and sayings I have a friend who says ‘it buggers belief’
Eric Smith A thing of beauty is a joy forever! Or how about, Time and tide wait for no man!
Pamela Gilmour Life is just empty without someone to love & share it with.
Paul Fellows: Life is like an onion. It has many layers and all of them stink!
And the winner, chosen by author of
‘Life is Just…’ Nigel Lesmoir Gordon’:
Colin van Geffen ‘Life is what happens while you’re making other plans’ – John Lennon
Why? because it not only reflects Nigel’s novel ‘Life is Just…‘ perfectly but it is also of the same era – the 1960’s.
Congratulations Colin. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a Kindle voucher to buy ‘Life is Just…’
