a) That my best friends never demand any more out of me than I can give. That even though they all don't always get along with each other, they are each brilliant special women and I am lucky to know them.
b) That not all friends are best friends. That you can be mistaken about a few. That it's not okay to trust everyone indiscriminatingly.
c) That any song can be dirty-meaning-ified. Like Like A Prayer (I'm down on my knees/I'm gonna take you there/In the midnight hour/ I can feel your power) and even A Whole New World (Indescribable feelings/Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling) and ooh, obviously, Your Body's A Wonderland (You know it's a big enough umbrella/But it's always her that ends up getting wet)
d) That my favourite sleeping t-shirt has such huge holes on it, that I only noticed when I put it on, that it will have to be thrown away.
e) That the internet is possibly the world's best invention. After the telephone.
f) That I haven't laughed out loud in the longest time. Or ran. Or surrendered to any feeling.
g) That ooh, my first national byline came today and I'm ecstatic about it : )
h) That boys are strange and eerie creatures--who only look innocent and humanoid, but really, they're not and they're just trying to take over your mind.
i) That Holi is next weekend and that means an entire Saturday off will be wasted sitting at home hiding from the colours and the water.
j) That I really should go to GFO and do some shopping coz they have excellent stuff. That I really should go shopping, period, because my summer wardrobe is empty.
k) That this book will be this year's The Curious Incident Of A Dog At Nighttime. And I read the uncorrected proof copy. Yay for journo mom! :)
l) That I stand corrected and previously mentioned Scandinavian country wasn't really Scandinavian but East European and now it's time to STOP the teasing, coz, c'mon I've made a public admission and what more do you want from me, Flirty Pole?
