Life is a Rollercoaster?

So the last 24 hours have been somewhat of a roller-coaster.

The ones that start really well, anticipation building up when you slowly but definitely get to the top of the first steep plunge of the ride. Yes, well after the plunge, your senses go on overdrive and while screaming “OMFCG Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee” and then reverting to “OMG GET ME OUT OF HERE” and then finally settling “THAT WAS AWESOME, I can’t feel my legs”. Well, I think feeling has come back to my legs by now. Thanks, shall we proceed? Yes? Jolly Good!

Firstly, I got home exhausted. Also, had a call from a nice chap in Aussie, the first thing that popped into my mind was “I didn’t think I was worth it” and “it’s so great to have people refer to you by your other name”. God only knows where these rather random thoughts pop up from.

During said exhausted day, I’ve been told by my new place of work that they like my work. I am trying my level best to not be smug about it, but I AM allowed a little smugness right? I’m never smug about stuff and I believe this is one of those things one must be smug about. God, such a lot of smug references, I think I’ve developing a heightened head. Oh well! But seriously, I think being complimented or receiving positive feedback of your work is always a great thing. I know that that certain aspect is something that keeps me going –“a job done well” or even a pat on the back (I meant shoulder, not bum – Geez seriously!!!)

So after what seemed like an exhausting day, I snuggled into bed, contemplated finishing one of my freelance articles, but sadly, it is when my laptop (known as Panix, for the reasons that when it goes to hell, I start to panic like Mt. Vesuvius is erupting – the little bitch LOVES her evil ploys to have me all hot and bothered), obviously had me panicking, as well as hot and bothered. Restarting in intervals of 30 minutes, and with an ever receding time gap, I just threw the towel in and tried to sleep. But did I? Nope. I was up till at least 3am.

Yep, the insomnia is back, and full on I must say. The last few days have been quite an increasing trend – 1am, 2am 3am. I hope I get some sleep tonight. But, anyways, getting back on track, when I did sleep I had somewhat of a nightmare. I realised about half an hour ago, that it is 8 months to the day of a very important day which concerned my ex. I was puzzled the entire day, and now I see that it’s my subconscious telling me that he is INDEED a nightmare and I am in a better place right now, nightmares really give you perspective sometimes, don’t they?  Anyways!

Since Panix and I were not on speaking terms, I decided to be a lazy bum and find some independence from being a slave to the machines. Oh, Happy Independence Day people! Didn’t really feel it was Independence Day though, I didn’t even watch the celebrations. Oh well, I guess since the independence from the LTTE, I think the independence from the British sixty years ago has kind of taken a back seat. Or is it just me?

I managed to bond with my mother. Made an awesome fruit salad, did a bit of gardening, talked about the renovations, did her hair and eventually we talked financials and my future, and at the end of it, I wanted to squeeze her cheeks, but I didn’t because she’s not a fan of the pinchy-cheekiness! Sigh.

Also, apart from not switching the laptop on till 1900 hours, I also put my phone on silent, grabbed a nice book to read – Bridget Jones : Edge of Reason (had me chuckling throughout and left me a wee bit British by the end of it all – I’m thinking with a British accent, I kid you not!), had a wee nap right in the smack of Chapter 8 (I blame it on the full tummy happiness caused by yummy aforementioned fruit salad), and played with Yellow Bird, whilst wishing how great it would be if Zoffy was around too. Love you Zoffykins! Miss you so so much!!!  Sigh!!!! Look at those exclamation marks, you get the gist noh?

So, apart from all of the above, I also bumped into my neighbor. Quite a feat because we manage to avoid each other like nothing. And here I am, praying that Panix doesn’t pull a number on me and fritz its brains out.

So 20 hours of Laptop Detox, a thoroughly refreshing book read, insomnia making its comeback, positive attitude towards life, job front –so far so good, Mummy relations – all clear, nightmares being a bitch, Panix beings a bigger bitch, and Independence Day going by without a care in the world. I think all I’m, missing right now is a chocolate party!

Aaah I feel impending doom coming from Panix. *Threatens with Philips screwdriver* Buahahahaha

PS: Dear John is coming out; this was brought to my attention none other than my lovely Sabby. Based on another great novel by Nicholas Sparks, who also wrote three of my favourite books which were subsequently made into films also my favourites; Walk to Remember, The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, we have Dear John, who’s main character is portrayed none other than one of my favourite actors, the oh-so-lovely-handsome-delicious-Greek-Godly Channing Tatum. Behold, the trailer (courtesy of Sabby)

PPS: I have so many unfinished posts it’s not funny. Must get act together, must get working laptop. We shall have CONTINUITY!!! SPAAAAAAAAAAAARTA!

  1. The number of innuendo’s and dirty thoughts derived from ze post is…quite silly really 😛

    Oh yes, Channing Tantum, so hot. Chocolate party sounds interesting. With Channing Tantum (who’s so hot). A chocolate party with a rollercoaster WITH Channing Tantum would be so hot.

    So I am going on loop now. I shall stop 😀

  10. excellent work.

    If you are throwing a party, you should consider the chocolate rotty from pillawoos. It’s amazing. When you bite into it, the melted chocolate runs all over your mouth.
