Yes sirree!!! it is the night b4 Valentines and well I am still a bit cynical.
I have tried to cheer up by reading lots of other blogs on the subject. All I read is how there is heaps of us out there just wanting “the Cinderella”version of the day to happen. Just once.
Since the last post we have definitely had a continuation of the past themes.
BUT with a difference. I, personally, reckon it had something to do with the moon eclipse.
As the world began to dislike POTUS again, we had our Prime Minister.
Yes – Mr Turnball – blue blood, business man, wearer of very nice tailored suits with ‘that’ harbourside mansion turned to the dark side.
Here he was in Parliament, of all places, suddenly getting down and dirty like a drunken sailor on shore leave. Absolutely giving it to the leader of the opposition. OMG it was so funny to see and hear him sling mud and slander and all things in BTW at the opposition .
No he said she said stuff just plain old you are scum came out of his mouth and boy did most of us google that up a million times, or you tubed it, or even better it started the news at 6pm. All us ordinary folk suddenly wondered where the other Malcolm had gone to but hey it was damn funny and great to witness.
Then there was the story about how most vitamins are just plain useless and you have all been conned. OMG well done and take a bow you clever marketing people over all those years. You def. earned your bonuses.
Our weather went totally crazy here and in the Northern hemisphere, with snow snow snow and more snow falling all over the USA, huge dams overflowing people being evacuated and yet down under we had SUMMER with a vengeance. The evil Sirocco wind bought 40+ c days; for a whole week; or more in some parts. Then the cyclone turned tropical rain storm in WA bought flooding and damage. Only a week before they were fighting bush fires. On the weekend the sirocco wind blasted NSW and QLD with devastating bush fires; still burning . The current one is 200km front on it and created its own thunderstorm and lightning. Of which there are spectacular pictures on google.
And tonight our local community goes in to FIGHT mode as the proposed juvenile prison protests begin. Poor Werribee never seen so many people in its main street ever.
On a more personal level I have decided that my job is boring and I will be leaving real soon. There is no point in wasting precious energy on that one. ( thank you Eddie Two Hawks and Seeds of Life for the push)
I spent a nice 2 hours reconciling my past valentines and where I may be going wrong.
But like my favorite blogger The Return of the Modern Philosopher says for all of us hopeless romantics there is always hope.
I wish all of you a happy valentines day. It does not have to be full of flowers and chocolate ( although chocolate is great) or dinners or carriage rides etc. As long as you look at yourself in the mirror and say “Hey your not bad, I like you”.
