I seriously need to invest some time in not trying to do something all the time and enjoy that – not doing anything…. besides it has just been like this since morning!
Had a great barbecue party yesterday evening – some friends had come over with lots of Surmai fish, Jumbo prawns and chicken, not to forget some excellent wine. So while Aasim enjoyed hard rock with the girls we adults sat around the fire cooked and fed them. Yeah we hogged as well!
Just got around to reading the Sunday newspapers and there was this article on how men and women in their forties are more health and appearance aware and that forties is the second adolescence for them. I couldn’t agree more on this. However, what pissed me off was the recurrent references that men are doing this so that they can be with younger women – Bull Shit! I would anytime prefer a fit forty something with no hang-ups for a date over an outgoing tweenybopper.
I don’t know if this is a good sign, a sign of inertia, a sign of snobbishness or for that matter means anything at all! The following three things, once upon a time long long ago, were considered luxuries by me as I could not afford them but now they are luxuries I can afford not to have
#1 Visiting cards
#2 Cell Phone
#3 A notebook computer
Believe me the sky does not fall if you are not carrying any / all of the above – BTW I really liked “Asterix and the Falling Sky”
