Just to coin an overused yet highly appropriate word that is about as redundant as cray cray…
Yesterday I went for a walk with a workmate – apparently she was inspired! She kept the pace really well and the bits I tend to lag in, she powered through! Forced me to shave another minute off! I like this!
While I was walking (and I don’t really care if real or imagined) a spunky boy flicked a rather cute smile my way! I’d like to think it was my alluring legging-type things that are now a little big combined with my Full Noise singlet and my ultra-sexy bum bag… And let’s not forget the I’ve-just-walked-5km-in-the-wind hair. Who wouldn’t want me? Seriously? I am but sex on legs. I cannot help it if I am irresistible.
In all seriousness, it felt kinda nice. Whether real or imagined, it just re-affirmed that I am not unattractive! I am working on being fit, healthy and happy, and although I would much prefer to have D appreciate my efforts, I am just as able to do it for me and know that he’s sitting back on a couch somewhere, watching Cowboy Bebop (Or Ghost in the Shell), drinking coke, eating terrible food and congratulating me on my efforts from afar!
More good news on the friends front! I sent off my little REALLY AWFUL rendition of a song I am considering entering into The Voice to some friends in the ‘Ville. It really was average. I had been sick, lost all my decent notes, was swallowing my low notes. Oh and because I can’t find a backing it was equally cat-squall awful accompanying myself on guitar. EEP on so many levels!
My friends, however, the darlings that they are, thought I was AH-MAZING (god knows what damage their ears copped to think that) and J is going to learn how to play it for me (THANK GOODNESS) so I can sing it at their engagement party. It’s a bit of a depressingly worded song but who doesn’t like Toni Childs??? I can’t say enough how much I love these guys! They are missing D as much as I am yet have been the most amazing support for me! Much love boys (and girl).
Another exciting day – I am off to see Urinetown tonight! A friend who was lucky enough to direct this show up north has been telling me all about it and Underground Productions are putting it on! Can’t wait!
I have also received what will hopefully be the last of the paperwork to complete for ONE of the superannuations so I can get that into the post today! Hopefully once that is done, I can get some $$$ off to D’s parents. I can see them refusing… I may have to think of sneaky ways!
For now, I am happily listening to Ingrid Michaelson which is very cute, happy and appropriate for me! And yes, its from an ad, but I don’t care. 😛
