Dreaming away

Oh Lord! Why can't I be a go-getter like my friend Catherine? She is such a strong woman, ambitious, she knows what she wants and then she goes for it. Her life is like......its like sex in the city. I stayed with her for a couple of weeks last year and men..........she is really something! She wakes up in the morning, hastily takes a shower, blow dries her hair, wears the highest heels she has and just basically flies through the door, no time for messing around.(Sigh)And me? how do I start my mornings? I open one eye........hmmmmmmmm what day is it? Oh yeah, thursday.......hmmmmmm, I open the other eye........I wonder if it will be sunny today........hmmmmmmmm there's a song in my head.....oh please, don't you rock my boat, cos I don't want my boat to be rocked......oh can't you see, I am happy like this........I am happy like this.....Oh, I should probably listen to the radio......maybe, a cup of tea would be nice......not lipton......something fruity........like......ah well, I ll just take lipton.....hmmmmmmm, what a nice day......sun is out......I wonder if Jojo can meet up for lunch later on? We should do indian, we did sushi last week.....I have to stop eating........I am on a diet.....well, well..theres the bus.....would I have time to stop by the bookstore? I have some money........I should get my eyebrows done.....anyway, another day.....oh...my phone is ringing....

"Hello? who? Oh Catherine, hi! WHAT? YOU GOT THE JOB AT THE PARLIAMENT? YOU ARE KIDDING! CONGRATS! yes, we should celebrate....definitely, yeah, I'll ask Jojo if she wants to come along..okay........ciao!"

"Hello? Hi Jojo, its me, waffarian.....(laughing) yeah, its such a lovely day isn't it......yeah.....wait.....why did I call you again? yeah! was wondering if you wanted to do indian today.....for lunch.....hmmm.....okay....see you!"


Yeah.........Indian.....should be good, maybe tikka masala......we should go to a museum or something........check out what's happening.....Oh dear!.....my phone is ringing again

"Hello? who? Oh Catherine! what's up? emmmmmmmm.....eh.....I forgot to ask her......yeah....I just talked to her.....totally forgot..yeah.....I know.....I'll call her again! oh? no need? you are going to New York? oh.....okay........"

Oh please, don't you rock my boat, cos I don't want my boat to be rocked, you should know, you should know by now, I like it like this, so keep it still......

I see your point Waffy, each should go at there pace. ... but I just believe we all should and have a passion.. that thing that gets us all going.. wakes us up in the morning .....what is yours?? tap into it.

Life is for living and to it's full...remember that kind of woman you want us to be ... it starts with passion...for life!

All fingers are not equal, but all are equal before God, all are empowered to do great things (in there given field)

funny post....but stop and think too babe :)
