Seasons Change - A disgorgement of thoughts!

Howdy blogsville, I ended up wearing an off-shoulder jumpsuit (see pic) for the dinner on Saturday. Don’t ask. I felt a bit bloated, but I got more than a few compliments, I don’t know if they meant it or were just too afraid not to compliment me. Don't be fooled by the pic, I don't think I looked half as good as her: I guess that was it. It was good fun anyway.

This week I bumped into an old friend from high school. The last time I saw her was almost a decade ago. I was super delighted about meeting her. She met me up at the office I was working from and I took her back to my place for the long awaited gist. I was excited about it all. I was until – she decided to fill me in on what was happening in her world. I listened attentively as she hazily filled me in on what she’d been up to- Nothing apparently. For every twenty minute into the conversation she talked about ‘married men’ or ‘runs’. When she wasn’t talking about men , she was bandying about her friends I clearly did not know. What a huge difference a decade can make. What happened to catching up on high school? Talking about personal development as opposed to gossiping about other people’s success. An obvious indication that you are out rightly jealous and have a lot of time on your hands. As much as I hate to say this again, I just realized some friendships really have their expiry date and I was looking forward to seeing her back out the door, any more time spent with her would clearly hamper any productive thoughts. I just didn’t see how she would fit into my current life now even though she yakked on about how she missed her old friends and was desperate to keep in touch again. I didn’t see how she could add value to my life in any way, shape or form. She couldn’t. Not once did she talk about her Career, finishing Uni or stability of any kind. So sorry love. The end! Finito! Hasta La Vista baby!

Anyway, I got some bad and good news this week. lets start with the bad....My former employers have made 900 staff redundant including 4 colleagues from my office, that I liked. That dampened my spirit until my stock broker called me to say my cheque was ready. Been trying to sell some stock for a while now, with the economic downturn it seemed quite bleak to get a buyer. Thank God, they eventually sold it for at least 75% more than what i got it for. Not much, but its something :-) I had been praying for another car. Yes I have another car now, so my brother is gonna put my current jalopy on the market later this week. I start driving my new baby this weekend or so. I deserve some good news.

BTW, next week from the 1st of March, I need to work on losing some weight since that's the trend on blogsphere. I weigh a a dangerously hefty 73kg, in my size 10/12, I have big bones that's why. I want to be a svelte 55kg in a few short months...and rid off the cellulite! Its a mission baby.

Until later folks.....

Dont worry Lucidlilith, you will get a car in no time. I really couldnt afford to get a car with a loan. I am so relieved. God is good. As for the weight loss, I am very optimistic. Thanks for the well-wishes.

Wow, I love that jumpsuit! I have moved so much I dont run into old friends. But glad you got to catch up with one of yours. Glad you got some cash and I will pray with you on the new car. :)

Good luck on the weight loss (those pictures are cool). If nothing else, starving sheds quick weight (LOL - thats what I do!)

The outfit looks nice, I wouldnt worry, they NEVER look as good on a real poerson as they do on the model / online. thats "Newton's law of diminishing self esteem" I believe.
As for your old friend, sadly, some ties need lossening, while others need to be cut off and burned. Time and tide and all of that.

Mamuje said...

Thadiva- I am waiting for your email

Daring to dream- I appreciate all the prayers and the cash came in handy. I am so optimistic, its unbelievable. God is amazing. I am still gathering momentum for the liquid diet....Heaven help me!

Phillipe- Old friend has been calling and I am not picking up. I refused to be dragged into the mud. As for the original version of the jumpsuit. I dare not put the original picture of me in this blog. I face the risk of looking like an overfed racoon. lol :-)
