Good news

Hi everyone...

I know that i have been really really scarce, but it was all for good reason... I was meaning to do a post two weeks ago, but with all that was happening, I just didn't get a chance, so this is my official notice: Ruby got married!!!

yep, I decided to make Mr Awesome MY Mr awesome, and we got hitched on the 27Th April.. so, that should explain why I haven't been in the blogosphere for such a long time...

I'm not shutting down my blog as yet, although some changes will have to be made, but all in good time, or when I'm not so lazy and when I have some interesting topics of discussion... so, you may find a post or two up now and again so dont forget me just yet!!!

jealousy rears it ugly head!

what would you do?

I have a confession to make... i don't handle jealousy very well.. if fact, i don't handle it all... I never have, and i don't think i really know how to.. the reason being, i don't see why anyone should fight/argue/ with anyone that could be potentially hazardous to ones health, and so, i do what any person scared witless of being confronted by the outcome of incorrectness would do... i back off!!
i know, it may be a cowardly way of doing things, but my reasoning has always been, that if the person even thought it, then so be it.. they can have it.. until now...
ok, i just re-read what i wrote, and i am also confused, so don't worry.. i will explain..

see, i was once in a situation where a girl saw a guy, and she immediately heard bells ringing, and a choir singing, and on-the-spot realised that he was her soul-mate, regardless of the fact that he wasn't single, and made a play for him.. the result being, that he left his current girlfriend and is now married to the girl with the supersonic hearing... and all was well in their little fairytale world.. but, the consequences of that union, was that the other girl, was left to deal with all the lying and deceit that the situation had produced, and the by-product of that was she learnt not to care too much.. so she made up her own fairytale, and thinking that she was Rapunzel, looked her heart up, in a stone tower, so that she would never have to deal with a similar situation ever again... until now!!

A story along similar threads, only this time, it deals with a friend that this girl has known all her high school life.. who cant seem to get the point, and back off..

The story goes like this:
Cast: Ruby-Girl
Friend with intentions
Matchmaker friend I
MR Nice guy
Friend saw Mr nice guy about a year ago, and asked Matchmaker friend, who is friends with both girls, to set her up.. but at the time, Mr nice guy, was seeing someone, so he said Mr nice guy is already spoken for... until, friend bumped into ruby-girl and Mr Nice guy, on their first date.. Friend, being a typical sneaky chic, said nothing but emailed Ruby-girl the next day and asked if it was a first date she witnessed, and ruby-girl, being the innocent, friendly person that she is, said yes, and she was so excited, told her all about Mr Nice guy...
3 months later: ruby-girl organizes a girls reunion, and invites Friend along.. whilst having coffee, Friend asks all so innocently: so, ruby-girl, whats happened to the guy that i saw you with? and Ruby-girl, still being an oblivious fool, says: oh, things are fine, he met my parents etc. etc. etc... to which Friend says: oh, but wasn't he getting married to someone, cos when i found out, Matchmaker I said that he was taken... But, dumb Ruby-girl, didn't realise what Friend said, until later that evening, when she was analyzing with best friend all the fun that everyone had at the re-union...

one month later, post Ramadaan
friend emails Ruby-girl (again) and asks: so, any good news yet? or is it over with the guy, and at the same time, phones Matchmaker friend to ask about Mr Nice guy...
now, Ruby-girl is completely p&%*$# off with this chic, but Mr nice guy, finds the entire situation hilarious, cos to him, its a major ego boost, that this girl is still after him, (although she is subtle in her moves right now) and thinks that Ruby-girl should be flattered that someone wants the guy that she has, but All Ruby-girl wants to do is bash Friend with intentions head in.. and that is the first time ever, that calm, always in control Ruby-girl is freaking out.. for no reason at all.. cos Mr Nice guy, doesn't even remember Friends name(it's a complicated funny name) but Ruby-girl is livid... do u blame her ???

back by popular demand

As a not-so frequent blogger of late, the most flattering thing happened today..
Two guys that used to read my blog regularly, found me on facebook, and asked why i haven't written in such a long time.. (they also complained about the quality of blog posts , putting the blame on facebook, for slowly down the activity around blogland, to which i do agree, but FB is different.. cos its all about people that know/knew you at some stage in your life, and i don't know about you guys, but i cant always say what I'm thinking, for the simple reason.. people's feeling's may be hurt although sometimes they would be deserving of that!! i don't know if I'm making any sense.. but that's how i feel, aside from the fact also, that facebook is damn slow, even when you connected via Vodacom's 3G/HSDPA.. blah blah, for me blogger still rules!!! yay!!

As for whats been happening in Ruby's world: well, just to let you know

singleguy, i took the reply that you suggested and sent that to the loser, ending off with a suggestion that he jumps off the shortest cliff that he finds in his friendly city, and he replied my message by saying: ok, i understand... Ramadaan Mubarak... which really p*&%$@ me off.. but, i refuse to response... A loser will stay what a loser is!!!

re: Mr nice/awesome guy... what is it with men? i swear, sometimes they worst than women, with constant PMS... all was going well, to the point were my dad said that his family should come home with a formal proposal etc, and now he has cold feet.. and thinks that he needs some time to think, and wants to read istighara.. which is fine, i don't have a problem with that, but ... three months ago, when i read mine, he was the one that said he is 120% sure, and does want to read it !! so why the change now??? go figure !!! Sometimes i think my dumb plants that refuse to grow for weeks on end are easier to deal with than these stupid people that i seem to be constantly meeting... oh yeah, here is a question for u guys: when you go off to "find yourself" which type of rocks are you looking under??? I hope you have your searching glasses on at the time...
