Why Me?


Somehow someway, I'm supposed to apologise for staying indoors all weekend long, as if I need to be everywhere, everyone else is. Whatever happened to staying at home and catching a flick? I mean, 'Hitch' was overrated and 'Alfie' was surprisingly good but you don't hear me calling you on your cell phone complaining why you haven't watched these movies? I do think Jude Law makes too many movies to be interesting but I don't send you an email at the office conveying that message. This sudden altruism is in my opinion senseless garbage. I got wind of word that a buddy of mine got divorced. Although this is a somewhat sad tale, next time i'll keep my opinions to myself. I received piercing looks when I claimed that 'you had to be blind if you didn't see it coming'. It's true. The chic was a shrow, the fella had a bad temper. Their wedding was nice, love was in the air. Love is overrated!

Today is the 4th of July.Independence day. Independence is a relative term. Independence from what? Independent Women, what independence? Just baloney if you asked me. Pyromania is rampant, firefighters are logging in overtime. A dude set himself on fire lighting firecrackers for last years show, this year the city issued an ordinance and broadcasted it on local channels and sent residents mail relentlessly. NO PERSONAL FIREWORKS DISPLAY. I think people watch the show to get stuff to talk about at work the next day.

"So where d'you watch the fireworks at?",
"My backyard - my wife was with me and my children loved it!"
"on TV"

That kills the conversation. It's actually interesting to watch the reactions, I hate fireworks.

LOL Magaidi do you have anything good to say about anything today??

That story of being blasted because you decide to stay in is complete and utter rubbish. I had a friend declare me boring because I stayed in all weekend. "You've become so boring. What's happening to you?" Not only had I already explained that my finances were looking decidedly sickly and I needed to make some lifestyle changes, but I was also coming down with the flu and apart from all those excuses, really did want to stay in and catch a flick/chill. But the way she went on and on you'd have thot I signed a contract with her to be an escort. Of course I realised that she was bitching cos I was her only hope for going out and she'd have to go home if I didn't show up. But I very politely let her know that my going out is not dependent on her wanting to go out. Kwanza just to rub it in, I'm going to stay in again this weekend or go out of town. When did I become people's social life?

Heh heh mini-rant. Sorry.

I love fireworks!

I promise not to do a min-rant blog here like some people above, but promises are overrated too :)

Well, on the stayin in bit, I do this all the time, and I dont really give a toss what anyone else thinks.

I spend Monday to Friday running around on other peoples times: time to get up, time to get the bus, time to get to work, time to meet deadlines, time the gym closes, time the supermarket closes, time for this time for that.

What about time for me?
Weekend - that's it.
I will not answer the phone if I dont want to speak to your right now (thank God for caller display(havent I been doing that all week?)
I will not go out if I dont want to (I dont care what/who it is for)
I say: If you really want to talk to me, leave me a message, I will call you back... but if you are one of those who keep calling endlessly without leaving a message, hoping that I will go mad with screening calls and pick yours up? Dummy, go get a life, this here is mine.

Ok, I lied, I have more to rant about but I already tarnished my reputation.
[What reputation, you gasp]

Sorry I came back: he he he.

Did I hear anyone say that I should answer the phone incase its an emergency..?
Between my cellphone and my landline, there is only one 9 - you need three.

Thats it.

Oh Ms K - LOL - can I include you in my list of social life savers?

ms_k - w'sup girl. I've kept it bottled up way too long. Had to get it out. LOL!

G I hear you. My actions apparently don't speak as loud as I want them to. If you call me 20 times, and I don't answer the phone, maybe your weak behind needs to learn that I have no time for you therefore quit calling me!.And to hell with those "It might be an emergency one time". If it is, call the cops. Why are you calling me?

@Nick - I've scheduled time specifically for that. PJs all day, no shower, watch tv, do nothing then rest afterwards! {baby gal's probably going to come across this but what the heck!}
