Ice cream

I'm eating peanut butter ice cream and trying to ascertain whether it is one of the seven wonders or an abomination. I could go either way. 


Human beings are a mystery

It is so difficult to understand other human beings. It's like trying to find your way in the pitch black. I find myself stumbling around, falling over my own feet and so on.  Some people are a magical mystery - full of promise and excitement, joy and hope.  Yet others are the kind of mystery that is portrayed in horror films, in other words, you peek beyond the locked, rust encrusted door and then wish you hadn't left the safety of home.

Here's hoping that all my interactions, from this moment forward, will be with first group of people.

Here's to magic, sparkles and smiles.

Amber's amazing artwork

Amber created this amazing piece of art using Cbeebies Paint with Bing.  She controlled the mouse at times, made all the decisions about materials and style.  I think it is fabulous. 

Replay with The Fast Show Special 2014

Thanks to a very lovely gentleman I have been reminded of the majesty of The Fast Show. I really enjoyed watching episode one and two of The Fast Show Special 2014.  It was absolutely perfect.

I used to watch The Fast Show avidly in days gone by.  My favourite sketches included Jazz Club, Brilliant Kid, Ill get me coat, Swiss Toni and Suit you sir.

I was rather sad at the lack of Mark Williams but despite that, The Fast Show update was, unsurprisingly, absolutely 'Brilliant'.

Unsuitable admirers

It's interesting when you can see that someone is physically attractive but conversation with them leaves you completely uninspired or even utterly bored. I experienced this last night. I was rather relieved when a friend came to rescue me from an unwanted interaction with a gentleman.  He talked about himself constantly and the subject matter was entirely without merit.  I curse my good manners because if not for these, I would have walked away sooner. 

It is also interesting to note that not all geek is chic.  In fact, some geek is anything but chic.  I'm a self-confessed sapiosexual.  I get excited by knowledge and even more excited by people that are knowledgeable.  However, intelligence and geekdom are sometimes not enough.  There has to be something more.  Again, this comes down to attraction.  You are either attracted to someone or you're not. 

I went out last night for some much needed me time.  I had a great evening with good people.  Unwanted attention from 'gentlemen' callers notwithstanding.

The beginning

Something is happening today that will take place almost exactly where something else began.  This is poignant.  This is an apt twist of fate.

I doubt I'm placing too much emphasis on it when I say that today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Today is celebration of who I am.  It's a celebration of being true to myself.

Today is the beginning.
