Suggestions for harmonious partying

After this past generally legendary weekend, I have realised that there are still people that cannot conduct themselves to generally accepted codes of behaviour, or slightly more diplomatically put - suggestions for harmious living, or even harmonious partying. So, I am taking it upon myself to put a few out into cyberspace in the fatal hope that they might be followed by others.

SHL 1: When going to a party, do not show up empty handed, even if the only thing you contribute is a plate of snacks or a six pack of beer. It's just good manners.

SHL 2: When invited to a party and the time given is 7, please do your best to rock up at said time. If circumstances out of your control prevents you from arriving in a timous manner, please inform the host of said circumstances in a timely fashion. This will prevent that she suffers from "Nobody likes me" anxiety.

SHL 3: Should you be invited to said party in an indirect manner, i.e. by a friend of the host that is already invited, please greet the host as you enter. No one likes it when someone just makes themselves at home in your house and you haveno idea who the hell they are.

SHL 4: Never, ever, ever develop a case of sticky fingers whilst at someone else's house. And if you should have developed this condition and were caught, you should especially never create drama or kick up a fuss. Simply bow your head and try to dissapear as quietly as possible. DO NOT RUIN THE PARTY FOR EVERYBODY ELSE INVOLVED.

SHL 5: It never hurts to ask the host if there's something you could help with. Chances are good that he or she will tell you to sit on your ass and relax and enjoy yourself, but the thought will be appreciated and a return engagement will definitely be coming your way.

SHL 6: Should you want to bring other people to the party that were not invited by the host, please ask the host beforehand if this is okay, especially if all parties involved do not know each other. Also ensure that these people have accommodating personalities that will not clash. The last thing you want is to have the jost be uncomfortable at his or her own party.

Well, I think that should about cover it. It doesn't take much to have a n awesome party, but it also doesn't take much to ruin a supposed happy occasion for everyone. It actually jaust takes one ass. Let's all try to not be asses! Till next time.

It's here!!!

The weekend has arrived! And the glory of it all - it's a long weekend!! No blue Monday for me next week. Glorious! Now, the past week I have realised soething about myself - I love being in a relationship! Nothing's official yet, no questions have been popped, but I love spending time with someone who seemingly adores me. I know that I'm awesome, but having it verified by someone else is always good for the heart and soul. Best of all, I'm expecting some much loved visitors this weekend, and what I'm looking forward to the most is that I can show off this little gem that I have found. LOVE it! This is gonna be a fantastic day and a glorious weekend.

Who ever said life is fair??

So, woke up this morning feeling like a million bucks. Possible love interest on the horizon, got into a shirt I haven't been able to wear for over a year, live in a great house with pool, the weather is wonderful and generally I had a song in my heart when I got to the office because in addition to all the other wonderful aspects of the day, today is a breathing day at work as well. Then of course Murphy had to come along and mess up everything. Karma is a bitch and of course the wheel never turns the way you expect it to. Now I need to move out of my little mansion and who knows what kind of living arrangements lie in my immediate future. At least my utilities bill will be much less. Who ever said life was fair??

I've just finished the most insane working day of my life. I cannot remember a more hectic day involving more running around. The cool thing about it is realising that I do perform pretty well under pressure. In addition, the day went pretty quickly, I can hardly believe that it's past five and that I can go home now. Now the only questin remains - what will I have for dinner? Will I give in to this pendng feeling of exhaustion, and make myself a quick sandwich, or will I treat myself a little and cook a delicious meal, since I know I can. If I do cook, I'm thinking of a lambstew with a fresh green salad and perhaps a warm pasta salad as well. I'll see once I reach home. :-) For the time being, I'm signing out.

Thank you for small miracles

It's amazing how one's general attitude towards things changes if a certain aspect, which has created a semi-comfort zone, is no longer present. Suddenly you're lethargic, and tired and simply not in the mood to deal with the BS of the day to day workings of your life. Then, one day, miraculously, that one little facet returns and it's as if the sun is returning from beyond the clouds.

And no, I am SO not talking about any type of romantic involvement. I'm talking about my job! When one works with idiots and these idiots dominate the space that you're supposed to be build a career in, it is nice to have someone of your intellectual caliber with whom decent communications can take place.

Once the intellectual equal, or even sometimes superior, goes away and the idiots take over, it leads to a complete lack of personal motivation to actually stay at the office for the full required 8 hours. Of course my sense of dedication is off,what the hell was expected. But now, I've got a silver lining again. Thank heavens for small miracles. :-)

The wonders of the human ego

Yes!! I am convinced that the human ego will be the down fall of mankind. Or at least, give an egotistical bastard enough rope and he'll hang himself with it! At the same time, a HEALTHY ego can be a catalyst to many wonderful things, such as convincing another, who is not too sure of themselves, that it6's perfectly okay to jump in the lake and that you will be there to guide them. The sad thing of course is when they do jump into the lake the fisrt time, you paddle alongside them and then afterwards they're own ego has expanded to such a degree that now they feel that they can swim on their own, and you're left out on the beach, looking at the horizon and wondering what the hell happened. I don't wanna be on the damn beach!!!!!

The first of the ramblings

So...I've made the monumental decision, well, in my mind at least, to post my extremely random thoughts to the world wide web. Lord only knows who will actually follow my ramblings, but others have gotten famous for doing less. I mean, look at the top ten "celebrities" of the day. Which of them actually have any true talent in any field, in any way sense or form?? So, since I am of the opinion that I am smart, capable, sometimes funny and, in the words of Barney Stinson, generally awesome, I thought it would only be benefitial, even if only to myself, to allow the greater world out there into the random ramblings of my mind. Thus, welcome!!
