Living life


All is wonderful.

I'm a tad tipsy after an evening drinking cocktails.

Lots of affirmation of love.

My alibi on Saturday night was the flirty Frenchman. Who was yours?

Stuff I learnt from TV

I was surfing away at the US immigration website and I hit the Naturalization Self Test option, with absolutely no prep at all I got 78% correct. So I guess all those years of watching The West Wing finally paid off!

Although I have to admit some of the questions were a little tricky, such as ...

What are the two major political parties in the United States today?
The House of Representatives and the Senate
Federalist and Reform
Bull-Moose and the Whigs
Democratic and Republican

or even

Who helped the Pilgrims in America?
Christopher Columbus
George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
The American Indians/Native Americans

Yesterday over lunch with some new friends I was asked if any old flames would be attending an up and coming event of mine. After a brief pause to flip through my mental guest list I realised no. I also realised that 6 out of the last 7 men that I have dated and/or interested in are now married*. This morning I got a round robin email from the seventh - to say that he and his new gf are having a baby.

*Only counting the still living ones obviously.

The cold fairy visit

Last night I was feeling great, cooked myself a healthy supper and was curled up in bed at a decent hour with a good book. Then at 2:00am I woke up with a cold! A thumping head, streaming nose, sinus pulsating, dry throat coughing, cold! Seriously that cold fairy had better not visit me again in the night. ~bleh~

Conversation with aging parents

My father called me* this evening, and after a full dissection of why I didn't answer the phone when he called earlier. (I was out!) He asked ........

Father: "would you like to talk to your mother**
Mia: "umm ok, if she wants to"
Father (whispers): "its Mother's Day"
Mia: "not here its not, but ok, put her on"

muffled conversation in the background
Father: "It's Mia, she wants to talk to you"
Mother: "But I'm making the tea"
Father: "It's ok, the tea can wait"
Mother: "Oh ok then"

Mother: "Hello"
Mia: "Are you having a good day Mother?"
Mother: "Oh thank you yes, we've just heard that your Father's 2nd cousin has just died, I never met her but your Father said that Grandma took you once to her place in Portsmouth for afternoon tea - do you remember her? You must have been about 6."
Mia: Not really, Grandma took me to lots of relatives for afternoon tea.
Mother: Well we are going to the funeral and apparently the service is going to be held at XXXX Abbey, which as you know*** is just a ruin so it should be quite an interesting service"
Mia: "As long as it doesn't rain, so how are you?"
Mother: "Ok then, bye"

Yep, thats one of the 3 conversations that my mother and I have had since last August.
And yet I still have people not believing me when I tell them she has no interest in me.

This phone call is even more odd when you remember that they didn't bother calling me on Christmas Day, New Years Day or my birthday last year. Yet I'm still expected to wish her a Happy Mother's Day.

*A very rare happening these days
** A never before suggested idea
*** Actually I didn't, but great, now I do!

So much to say, no words to explain

Everything is just peachy.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too.
