happy

The title of this post should be the symbol for an atom

So, last night I got a text from my oldest friend, who is in town for the week. We'd organised to meet up for dinner on Friday. Basically she was blowing me off to go to the Sevens. I understand this and I'm ok with it. There was a time when I would've done the same thing. (Boganville is my hometown, remember?) These days, there is no way I'd blow off a friend for sport. It served as a reminder of how things have changed since the old days. You're not a Bogan anymore, Dr Windy. *phew*

January has been a month I'd really rather forget. Don't get me wrong, some good stuff has happened. But it seems that, for most people, myself included, it's been a monthus horribilis. No, I don't want to discuss it. Yes, I'm glad it's over. So, I'm decreeing that a) January 2006 is officially written off, b)everyone needs to chill the fuck out, and c) I'm having a break. I'm not sure what nature this break will take yet. I thought about not blogging for a while, but I'm an opinionated attention whore and I enjoy it. I've taken all the sick days I'll get away with. I've been on a road trip and I've bought stuff I shouldn't have. One more Thing and I'm done. But, I think, for a short while at least, till I get my own shit together, the Doctor is Not In. K? Just for a while? But I might be doing a bit more leaning than usual, and I hope that is ok too.

And there's this:

Wow. That was long. Anyone who read it all, give yourself a gold star, a pat on the back, a million dollars and a pony. And for those who want a million ponies and a dollar, apparently Argentina is the place to go.

I think I'm getting better at aikido. We are learning 2nd-8th dan stuff, not the techniques I need for 4th kyu, but the basic fundamental stuff is all the same. And, working 17 million levels above your skill is quite good for a) improving fundamentals and b) napalming your ego out of existence. I actually, for the first time ever, last night considered that I one day might wear a hakama.

Also, how can one dress in fake fur fabric and still look sexy?
