Blown Away

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)
My love has returned in full, thrilling force, so needless to say, my mind is - almost rather literally - scattered all over the Western Cape.

P.S. In the mean time: hey, Sea Monkey*? I'm not ignoring the meme of the decade, promise. I'm just waiting for my mind to become whole again. Okay, so that might be a futile exercise. I suppose my only excuse is that I'm merely procrastinating it. Along with everything else. Including writing YOU** a reply. (And yes, my laziness has just jumped to record levels. I mean, who else uses their blog as a kind of secondary device to send messages? And I'm not even talking cryptic or deep, symbolic messages. Alas, I'm still way too lazy for that!)

P.P.S. Ever since last Wednesday morning South African time - when the outcome of the US election was finally called - I've been incessantly humming the very first song I've ever written. Well, if we HAVE to get all technical about it, I shamelessly stole the melody from someone else. And we use the term 'written' a bit loosely when it comes to the lyrics too, because I didn't actually even come up with anything other than a title. Which also happens to conveniently double as the first line of the chorus. It goes thusly (and oh, yes, the glorious irony and politics behind the state used in the song which I based it on isn't lost on me! In fact, I see it as sweet, sweet revenge for the fact that the Ă¼ber conservative woman who almost became my monster-in-law lives there): Sweet Home of Obama!

You have to admit, it has an extremely nice ring to it! Except when I sing it. Loudly. And repeatedly. And off-key.

* and ** I have some kind of a cheek to assume that they'll even read this! Oh well, blame the returned love and the subsequently scattered mind.

Busted. I read it.

This seamonkey is not too crazy about being tagged herself, but had the cheek to tag others! I aim for consistency and integrity at all times :)

Po: *Sheepish grin at being busted*. That was supremely corny, I know, but I couldn't help myself. Also, was still suffering from severe jet-lag since it was written a mere three months-or-so after I had returned to SA from the USA.

And by the way? I really AM delighted at being tagged by anyone! It makes me feel Very Important. And yes, we know that doesn't take very much, but still... so thank you. Promise I'll get to it... eventually!

is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
