Sure you can use my teaspoon . . .

November 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

I work in an office where cutlery is like gold. You could leave a million rand on your desk and no one will touch it. Cell phone too. nothing will happen to it. But get one of those 100 piece silverware set – and all those forks / knives / spoons will be gone within the hour.

Old Tannie usually packs her teaspoon away each afternoon before going home, but this one afternoon, she didn’t for some reason. And she knows that I have one on my desk all the time. And I won’t deprive anyone from having their cup of morning java or tea – so when she asked if she could borrow it, I was like “sure, no problem at all.”

If you calculate how long you use your teaspoon to make a cup of coffee, it should take maybe 5 minutes, close to 8 if you still have to stand in line for the kettle or sugar pot. . . My teaspoon was missing for a good 15 minutes . . .Can you say suspicious?

I hunt down Old Tannie and catch her eating breakfast with MY teaspoon!!?? Whaaaaaat????!!!!!

Oh hell no! Bunny don’t play like that – you not even related to me! I flipped out, maybe more than I should – but you know the principle of it all . . .

And then she tells me its because her spoon is gone, so she decided to use mine.

Hold the phone.

And when she gave it back to me, all she did was hold it under a cold running tap to rinse it off? Did my OCD kick in!

I washed it with dishwashing liquid, poured boiling water over it, and then washed it again. It has never been so shiny and clean before!

Ok – I will admit I overreacted – but you can’t come to me ask me for the teaspoon to make coffee and end up eating your breakfast with it. No – no – no . . . . . . .

So now if you want to use anything from my desk, please fill in this questionaire and return to me within this time limit; thank you.

I’m happy, if you are . .

The eternal question : What makes you happy? Or the variation : Are you happy?

Obviously – it does differ from day to day. Heck – it can even differ from hour to hour!

Am I happy right now? Well – right at this moment, I’m super tired and would like nothing better than to be able to take a nap and then maybe head to the beach on some tropical island with a surfboard. . . that would make me happy, right now.

All the above takes place in my little shrunken head: white sand, clear blue sea and palm trees.

Alas – I’m kinda stuck in an office, behind a desk listening to songs being murdered on the radio.

*Sigh*

But then the thought process of being happy turns to a person . . as it always does.

Are you happy with the person YOU are when this other person is around you?

Complicated? Not really – we all have this persona with different people, for instance I won’t be completely insane and out of control with some of the people I work with – they don’t need to know that side of me. But if I feel super comfortable and I can pick up on your craziness, maybe, just maybe – you’ll see my craziness creep out and then we can be totally and utterly mad together.

I saw this happen last night at a function I won entry to. My roomy and the so called GF.

My roomy is like the coolest person around when he lets himself go and indulges in the moment. But when he is with the so called GF – he is all down and serious and gets these headaches and he feels low and and and . . .

Why be with someone that brings you down? I have been there and it’s the worst place to be in. Someone has to bring you up, show you things, experience things with you and make you smile even when you crying.

I also couldn’t be with someone that tracks my every single move and wants to know what I’m doing with who and why. Jeez – I’ve already been smothered by my Mother once in my life, I don’t think I could stand a partner doing the same. Please just check in with me, know that I’m alright and not calling from the boot of a Russian Mafia boss’s car . . .

So why is Roomy and So Called GF together?

I don’t know – and I don’t think they know either . . . besides the obvious “come over and spend some time with me” reason. Ah yes, “that” reason . . .

How does this all fit in with this post? I think you have to be happy with who you are when you around this amazing person that makes you feel like there is so much more to do, to experience and most importantly want to do.

Life is way too short to be unhappy, or at least pretend that you are.

So . . .

Am I happy right now? Only a little – and that’s possibly because my coffee is wearing off and I stopped looking at certain pictures saved on my phone. Another cuppa while I scroll back up to scroll down again?

Yes, why the hell not.

Hi there,

I trust you are well? I am, as usual, fabulous! LOL!

I want you to know that you have and always will make me smile – I just hope that you have that in the future. With no headaches!

Some grand romantic gesture keeps playing in my head – but we both know – this ain’t the movies – and besides, there are no naval sea carriers in sight. No waterfalls, no stars . . . We had such fun planning all the adventures we could have gotten up to, maybe I should put them in one of the bags I have (not the one with the knife, I mean that would be madness after all haha!)

I think a whole bunch of people can see the attraction between us, and that’s kinda scary, considering we tried keeping things to ourselves . . .

I want to type out so much more – but since I have a time limit – damn – shouldn’t slack so much, I know – I just want you to know that you shouldn’t change for anyone and be true to yourself, because that true self I saw is such an amazingly awesome person that I would definitely want to get to know better and then some. :)

It takes awesome to know awesome – and we are, were? just that . . .

Thank you for making this bunny smile big :)

Slacking hey. . .

From almost blogging twice a day to blogging every couple of months? Sad behaviour indeed.

And to think there is so, so much to be blogging about . . . I have to up my game.

This always happens though, promise to post more and then I can’t even do that! Oh my greatness.

It’s fine – I won’t be myself under pressure – but I should blog about latest adventures and misadventures . . .

Let’s see.

Joining the gym are we?

January 11, 2014 in Uncategorized

New Year Resolutions and all that . . . and I bet one of them is to lose weight, lead a healthier lifestyle – I have to do that too actually. Talking about losing weight, read an article about this “radical” new weight loss program, that has you “embarrass” yourself with before pictures posted on the web, so you can track your progress. And everyone can do the same.

Now – I think this has happened anyway, people posting before and before pics on blogs, Pinterest – even Facebook. Why would you pay someone stupid amounts of money when you can just do it yourself? I don’t understand it.

I can tell anyone that is interested of course, that I am over my healthy weight. Here is the fact: *deep breath* I weigh 77,8kgs. I need to weigh a maximum of 60kgs. I know i”m not morbidly obese, but it would be nice to slim down and have that stamina to climb and run around like a crazy person or something.

Would I post a before picture?

Maybe I should – it would give me the motivation I need.

Watch this space.

So we enter a new year . . .

January 4, 2014 in Uncategorized

Firstly – compliments of the season to everyone! I don’t want to be blogging in June sometime and I still haven’t wished anyone a good new year ahead – that would just be madness and utterly bad behaviour.

So here we are, 2014. No bad connections with the number 13, as in 2013. I hear it was a bad year for most.

I had a great start – obviously starting a new job (which I love! Just hope to be able to do more in this new year . . .) And then on the flip side of that – I have been very bad by not  blogging as much – but we’ll use the excuse of the new job as mentioned above! Haha.

I can say that there were 3 operations last year from Pookie’s side of the family. And then there was my whole incident from my last post – but that seems to have sorted itself out in my head.

I do pledge to blog more – as well as read more . . .and maybe write in my journal more too. (Wait – she blogs and has a journal? Damn straight! Only because sometimes you feel the need to write instead of type – I’m weird and complicated, I know . . .)

So here’s to you! And here’s to me! Let’s make it great!

quick stop

November 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

So I haven’t been here in ages and since my recent almost meltdown of emotions regarding Pookie. I can say that I have sorted them out, and realised that it is normal for people to feel the way I did . . .feeling like that is ok, but acting on them is quite something else! And very dangerous too.

But all is well in my world – with some exciting new developments at work, so who knows – maybe I’ll have something more to blog about soon!

What is going on with me????

September 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

I have been in my relationship going on for 3 years – and I really don’t know what to make of what is going on in my head!?

I find myself being attracted to someone else. I know this is normal human behavior, or is it?

Is it OK to look, but not touch? Can I admire from a distance and put it out of my mind with the thought of “the grass isn’t greener on the other side”?

I have to sit and think and remember about why I fell in love with Pookie – and why I what to be with him . . .he is such a good man to me, and I don’t think he deserves this from me, even though they are just thoughts in my empty little head.

I blame lust! Or maybe it’s the feeling of something new and unknown? But does this mean I feel as if my current relationship has reached a point when we need to experience new things together? Boredom? The point of being so comfortable with each other that it’s now stale? Does this explain the “heart jump” when I see this other person? Something new?

Argh! If that’s the case, then I’ll have to suggest we do new things, visit new places – interact with our friends more often . . .or maybe give each other the space to do our own things from time to time . . . .??? I have to stop it!

What if things were so easy, all it took was a simple touch to see your future together, feel all those feelings – good, bad and worse and all those excellent times – flash before your eyes? But then, that wouldn’t solve anything too. Because you’d know exactly what the future has in store for you. And that would be kinda boring.

But experiencing a probable other life to lead in the blink of an eye? Well, that’s the talk and thought of science fiction . . .

 

Flying Saucer Interchange?! The real X Files . . . .

April 22, 2013 in Uncategorized

Firstly – when did this interchange come about? I heard about the very first time on Saturday evening, getting lost from the airport . . . .

What?! Lost from the airport? Never! Living in Johannesburg for all my life and getting lost from the airport? What a revelation!

So – there we were; Pookie and myself, talking and chatting away when we realized we were only 14 km from Pretoria. We live on the West Rand, and being 14 kilometers from Pretoria meant we had been travelling in the wrong direction for almost 30 minutes!

Good gloriness!

And then we came across this so called interchange and started looking out for unidentified flying objects and Agent Mulder standing alongside the road . . .

Don’t get me wrong it is by far the coolest named interchange we have, but just how we got there .  .  . not so much.

All in all – 2 hours to get back home from the airport: passing Diepsloot and riding on the old Krugersdorp Highway with absolutely no lighting . . .Yeah – we live for the adventure.

Eish . . .

April 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

So it has been a month since I have blogged . . . I feel upset with myself. But that also means that it has also been a month since I have last written in my journal too!

What?!

A journal and a blog? Well – that’s just how I roll . . . . I have a lot of things to get off my chest, this being my public platform and my journal my private one, well, until such time that is. I do plan to one day give all my journals to my nieces, so they can read about what happened in my life and what not, i think that would be kinda cool.

So anyway, work has been a blast, having little adventures every other day and they have been funny too!

Like the one time Little Tannie printed 72 pages instead of one while doing a spreadsheet, and rushing to the printer like a bat outta hell!

But yes, I must really make time to visit here more often – maybe from next week.
