What an interesting couple of days! I'm guessing that y'all watched The Inaugaration from your tellies like i did last week. My friends and i made a whole song-and-dance out of it, drinks were bought snacks were had. By the time Barack actually did his oath, i was already tipsy and weepy!
In retrospect, i was quite disappointed it took all of 15 seconds and then the next day he supposedly did it again (defeats the purpose of watching it before). What i want to know is where was all the pomp and ceremony? I wanted some lengthy drawn out process with him walking down some long aisle and people bowing and curtseying, hehehe.
So the whole of last week i had an amazing friend of mine staying over with me from Zim. Made me realise just how much fun it is having company at the end of the day, it was like a slumber party every night! I didn't realise just how lonely this living by one's self gig is. In the same breath, i don't think i could do the whole having a room mate route again either, i am too "set in my way" ( said-visiting friend called it my "Obsessive Compulsive"tendancies, hey i like polishing wood surfaces at 10pm at night, its theraputic).
I didn't realise that i had got so particular till she pointed it out! Like i think its very normal to fold up empty plastic bags after a shopping trip, you never know when you'll need them. I believe bog rolls should be put into those holder thingies so the paper comes off in a specific direction, drives me crazy if it doesn't. I also sleep with my bedroom door and bathroom door locked (a throw-back reflex from back in the day when our house kept getting broken into back home).
I can't be the only one with supposedly odd home tendancies....'Fess up, what are yours?
Big Girl Brookies: I'm very good at moping about, especially good at the whole self-indulgent, woe-is-me routine. But it seems that even i can get sick and tired of being sick and tired. S
So the trick is to deal and move on.
Some things you can hold on to, other's you just have to let go, some things you work at, some things you give a rest, some things you heed whilst other times you block your ears from hearing such things...and the cliches keep coming!
Bottom line, this here phoenix is making another debut from the ashes.
The Calling: Oh more of this later, but i think i have finally realised my true calling in life! Am still doing some research and figuring out just how viable this life-career-path is, but by Jove i think i've got it! Silly thing is that its so obvious i'm suprised i didn't think of it before. Watch this space.
Random digression: Demmit, just found a zit on my cheek, i mean, as if Monday's weren't bad enough!
Enjoy the rest of your day chickens,
