Not a bad day so far.
Sure, for me it’s only like an hour old, but still 😉
Just paid the arrears on the bond – always a good feeling. Electricity is up to date once again, all the accounts bar 1 has anything left on them to pay off, I’m nourished, I have a roof over my head, even though it leaks every so often, I have a car, not to mention a job, and 2 kids with jobs of their own – life could be a lot worse!
Now, all that might make the deal slightly sweeter would be a bloke that’s actually worth knowing on all levels. In the last bout of conversations, it’s mostly been SSDD – same shit, different dude! The Italian asks me yesterday if I have FB. Sure, I have FB, I answered him. Ok then, he reckons. I don’t have one, but I will use somebody else’s to go look at your pics… Dude!!! That’s very close to stalking! I could care less who views my FB profile, but really – there should be something for me to watch as well. It goes both ways not so? Started chatting with a doctor dude yesterday. Unfortunately, like all doctors out there, he’s are too wrapped up in his own arse to pay heed to common mortals. So, much as I’d like to know one of them on a personal level, just to make sure that they are not ALL arseholes like I’m inclined to think, it seems that they really are – he’s not doing anything to make that assumption go away.
Am meeting the pillion dude tonight. And the only reason I’m meeting him is so I can go on a toy run with him end of the month. Maybe this is what I should do – get a whole bunch of different ones, and do something else with each of them 😉
I should include a pharmacist, and a grocer, maybe a mechanic and a handyman. Of course, they will all expect payment of some kind, and that payment is usually in soft cash – a very high price to pay to have a man in the surrounds, so, maybe not. Think I’ll just chat – keeps me from being bored of an evening, and at least I’ll always have something to bitch about on the blogs ;-). If nothing else…
Anyhow – time to start the day. Worms to feed, dogs to feed, cats, birds, not to mention myself – neverending!!
Anybody remember these guys? Oe of the few bands I saw live back in the day. On my own – the ex did not like them, so I watched the whole concert by myself. Standard Bank arena, JHB city centre – when you could still go there. Ah, those were the days…
Hope today is a good one peeps!
The Creation of the Opposite Sex
One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls out to God…
“Lord, I have a problem!”
“What’s the problem, Eve?”
“Lord, I know you’ve created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, and that hilarious comedic snake, but I’m just not happy.”
“Why is that, Eve?” came the reply from above.
“Lord, I am lonely. And I’m sick to death of apples.”
“Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you.”
“What’s a ‘man’, Lord?”
“This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathise or listen to you properly. All in all, he’ll give you a hard time. But, he’ll be bigger, faster and more muscular than you. He’ll also need your advice to think properly. He’ll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about, hunting fleet-footed ruminants, and not altogether bad in the sack.”
“Sounds great,” says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
“Yeah, well… He’s better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, you can have him on one condition.”
“What’s that, Lord?”
“You’ll have to let him believe that I made him first.”
