Some days are just harder than others...

Today was one of those days. Though on the face of it - it doesn't really stand out as monumentally different from any other regular day - but today I didn't weather it very well.

I've been quiet of late because I've been wrapped up in myself - although I usually do believe the world revolves around me (my attempt at humour) lately my world has been just me.


Sometimes you just feel the need.

Not for much longer I hope - but days like today make it difficult to believe that breaking out of the cocoon is a good idea.

But I will. Soon.

Loving the horoscopes these days...

Only wish they would actually come true:

"You need to get out in the world and meet people -- your energy is just right for making connections and impressing people with your no-nonsense attitude. Productivity may soar! "

Okay - I found something on Facebook I actually kinda like....

Horoscopes on Facebook: "It's a great time for you to get involved in a new love affair -- or to rekindle your romance with your long-term partner. Your amazing personal energy is best spent with someone you're passionate about."

Now if only just one of these damn horoscopes came true!!!!!!

Cold Shouldered!!!

Okay, I'm on a bit of a roll....
(maybe because of that single beer thing... (scroll down - so not up to linking....))

There's this woman that I've known for quite a few years from work. She's one of those people that's hard to get to know, but over time, I thought we'd become friends. Met her for drinks occasionally, she'd been part of birthday dinners - so wasn't probably so far out of line,


In recent months, we'd worked closer together than previously - and when she moved on, I thought perhaps our working together had damaged our friendship (if I haven't mentioned what a stress case I've been at work in recent months - its important to note now...and really if she was upset with me I truly wouldn't blame her)


Since she's been gone, we've gone for drinks - so I kinda figured I was being a little paranoid and that really everything was okay.

Until a work function earlier this week.

Cold shouldered.

Really cold shouldered.

I wish I could take back the words "hey, want to catch up for a drink?" Pretty sure based on the non-verbal feedback I got that she'd rather stay at home and stab herself with forks...

Weird really - because I know sometimes I can be a force to be reckoned with - but I had given her a few opportunities to tell me if she was unhappy with me. I would have taken it on the chin - because although there's always two sides to any story, I'm pretty sure a lot of fault could be laid at my feet.

It's a shame really - but for once in my life - I'm just going to let it go. I can't be anything other than myself - and apparently that is unpalatable to her. Just sorry to find out in the way I did.

Oh well, no permanent frostbite this time at least...

I broke it - the wish necklace update...

I wore that damn necklace for over a year.


To the point that the thread (that was suppose to break within a month or so...) kept shrinking and finally looked like it was choking me. (small exaggeration perhaps. but only small....) My best friend asked if it hurt -so not far off...

Anyway - when I got home from Canada, I don't know what came over me, but I just ripped it off.

It took me a year, but I got tired of it.

Think I got tired of the wish many, many months ago, so have no idea why I waited for so long to take it off.
Too superstitious perhaps.

Hope ripping it off isn't bad karma....


I just discovered you can buy a SINGLE beer at the bottle shop.

Just one.

At a time.

Oooh - that spells disaster.....
