Don't Funk with my Heart

Gary had a funny exchange with his female uni friend who he met over the weekend.

Lea: How's shane and alix?

Gary: They are ok, well.

Lea: How nice to speak to someone normal! Ask a simple question, get a simple answer. Now when i ask my friends a question like that, they start talking endlessly about their children then end up asking me when i am getting married, dont i want children?

Gary: How nice to speak to someone normal! If I answered like that to another mom, they will start asking me more questions about what my baby does, whether she's started to crawl and learn the alphabet. What type of father I am....

Lea: I have a good answer to that - next time someone asks, just say"biological" and that's really fine ! Biological really exceeds the bar now... you've stucked around and the child wasnt fathered by someone else!


Gary: So how's Tim? (lea's roomate)

Lea: Oh i'm moving to sydney with him.

Gary: Oh....

Lea: According to him we were never apart . I did tell him i was shagging someone, but he said he was too....and frankly i dont care.

Gary: But you and him, never did anything?

Lea: Yah, i'm not even sure if he's straight or gay. But i'm in my 30's and i cant afford to be choosy.

Lea, she cracks me up.

Girls Night Out

As part of project 'reclaim life', i had dinner with pauline and a few other single girls last night. We had a nice dinner in a cool restaurant in clarke quay called 'forbidden city'.

I sat there and luxuriated in the company of women who had a life defined apart from their babies.

and GOSSIPED about

It felt good. Happy weekend.

With a little help from my friend

I'm still getting my head around the idea of a blog.

I mean, its safe, yet very unsafe.
Private yet very public.
personal but also quite publicly damning.

What if you say the wrong thing ...
and what if i blurt out personal details which hurt the people close to me?

What if i fill it up with crap?
What if i have no time to update?
Do i have anypoint to make?
and if not, would it be too self indulgent tojust ramble and talk about myself?

The choices we make.
