Finally! About Bruddy Time!

So last night i was laying about in my couch-less, tv-less living room (*sigh*) watching Reaper off my laptop and trying to understand why a show is promoting the Devil as a misunderstood guy who just ultimately wants to be liked(wtf?) when i got an sms from my girl telling me that Breaking News on all major news channels is that Zim powersharing talks have come to an end and that something has been worked out.

First emotion: Relief

Second emotion (literally following First emotion on it's heels): Sceptism...just what has been reached?

Anywho, some document is gonna be signed by the two parties next Monday, lets hope that some good comes out of all in limbo sucks serious a*s, like Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, "There's no place like home."


Super TED: Have any of you ever heard of TED? It's this forum where the world's greatest thinkers and doers come together and talk on a subject, giving their ideas and insights. The topics range from the most random of the random to some pretty relevant stuff.

It sounds quite dorkish, but i sh*t you not, i can't get enough of it! Especially of this talk given by a woman by the name of Helen Fisher talking about the evolution and trends in human relationships and where we're supposedly headed. I know, it sounds all pie in the sky but it's worth checking out, click here!

It's The Final Countdown: Am i the only one literally counting down the days till pay day (13, in case you were wondering). This weekend is gonna be so low-key, only non-money inducing activities will be entertained, like that Simply Red song goes, "Money's too tight to mention!"

Hope you all have a thrilling, inexpensive weekend! Be good :-)

Hey Vim.
Well, like you, i am completely sceptical about all this power sharing stuff. Only time will tell yo.

Also, i have to say. From the very first time i heard that MIS INDEPENDANT song by NEYO, i knew it would be my song of the year. LOVE LOVE LOVE that song, Neyo just does something to me...
can i get an amen!

Vimbai said...

Oooooh that Miss Independent track is HEAVY mate, heavy! The beat is just too much, i love it! Neyo does things to me too, lol.

Glad i am not the only sceptic, was starting to feel guilty about expecting the worst all the time. So i will just sit back and see what comes of it all and keep expectations to a minimum!

You're missing the point of the Devil in Reaper. You attract more flies with honey than vinegar. A sympathetic Devil is one you're far more likely to fall for than a straight-out EVIL! one. He's way more dangerous that way.

Vimbai said...

Nah i get it, he's more seductive and that much more dangerous if he's depicted as "nicer" or even vulnerable!

I am just not comfortable with the Devil getting any PR in general, i prefer him holding a pitchfork, with horns. Not looking suave, with that George Clooney-esque thing going on, lol

feeling you on days to pay day...yho...Zim...too tricky to call but it is a step whether in the right direction or not...time will tell. will check out...TED.

Vimbai said...

I guess we should all be grateful its a step, direction will have to wait!

I think the idea is to be 'cautiously optimistic' as the new Prime Minister, Mr Tsvangirayi says!

Vimbai said...

Prime Minister???!!!! Eish, i will just be cautious for now, hopefully by Monday i will be optimistic :-)

TED - it's YouTube for intelligent people. If you don't already, subscribe to their blog - they post something new almost everyday. The talks give me a real hopeful view of the future of the world.

Vimbai said...

I spent like 2hrs on their site the other day! It does indeed give one hope about the future :-)
