A friend of mine and i were having one of those 'meaning of life' conversations' and and since we are both scientists, i decided to ask her if she does believe in serendipity (since Single guy has linked me with a question...

Im sure most of u have an idea as to what i think serendipity is, but, i'd like everyone elses thoughts please...

but, (here's where the thinking too much bit comes in) what if you think its serendipity, and you have found your soul-mate but you don't know whether the second feels the same/they don't feel the same/they did feel that instant connection/spark/click , but they were stupid to realise that this was it??? what then?

I was chatting to MJ and he thinks that i just land up with jerks, so, maybe its a part of my serendipity to just find these Jerks... anyone know how i can change this god-awful jerk-luck ??? oh yeah, we have also coined a word: the female of a jerk will henceforth be called Jerkette... :) :)

Freedom Day

Hope you all had a fantastic Freedom Day...I was watching 3-talk with Noeleen(yeah, i was all dressed up and no-where to go) and she was interviewing ppl about what thewy thought of our 'young' democracy... and the general vote is that south africans who are happy with this country, and i think we SHOULD be ... we have come a long way from the apartheid regime, and although, it may take a long time to get over the whole idea, baby=steps are good! Viva South Africa...

Proudly South African
(well, except for the S.A. cricket team, whom are arriving at OR TAMBO INt airport this afternoon... ) i wonder what kind of welcome they going to receive.. maybe i should take a drive to the airport!!!

got this idea from Dew's blog!!!

Your Famous Movie Kiss is from Spiderman

"I have always been standing in your doorway. Isn't it about time somebody saved your life?"

You Are Designer Panties

You demand the best, from head to toe.
And your panties have to be pure couture, for your own luxury.
Men feel like you're a worthy challenge, though you can be difficult to catch.
You exude a polished, sexy vibe that tends to attract confident men.

Your Love Quote

Love is made by two people, in different kinds of solitude. It can be in a crowd, but in an oblivious crowd.

Your Kisses Are Medium-Hot

Your kisses are definitely sexy, but you're not about to make anyone gasp for air.
You take it slow and steady... and you ramp things up when you get the right signals.
Your kissing style is adaptable and adept. And people who kiss you love it!

You Are 48% Addicted to Love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love.
You've been a fool for love many times - but are you the wiser for it?
Your needs should come first, both in and out of relationships.
Because you're the only one who can look out for yourself!

Your Stripper Song Is

Closer by Nine Inch Nails

"You let me violate you, you let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you, you let me complicate you
Help me I broke apart my insides, help me I?ve got no
Soul to tell"

When you dance, it's a little scary - and a lot sexy.

You Are More Mild Than Wild

You're confident, and you really aren't concerned with how "hot" you are.
Other people's ideas of what's sexy don't concern you. And this is exactly what makes you attractive.

What Your Face Says

At first glance, people see you as down to earth and reliable.

Overall, your true self is passionate and physical.

With friends, you seem dramatic, lively, and quick to react.

In love, you seem mysterious and interesting.

In stressful situation, you seem like you're oblivious to the stress.

You Are A Romantic

You life your life like a fairy tale... or at least you try to.
Living for magical moments, you believe there's only one true love for you.
Love is the most important thing in your life, and you don't take it for granted.
Your perfect match loves to be in love as much as you do!

Mika Grace Kelly

i dont know why, but this guy reminds me of MJ, so, im dedicating this song to you MJ ....

Take Care now!!!

I have a confession to make; I have a monthly subscription to Cosmo mag. and Glamour mag... And this is an article from the May 2007 issue of cosmo... let me know what you guys think...

i dated this guy once. We fell in lust, played sleepovers, introduced our friends, SMSed each other incessantly and proposed things we knew we'd never follow through. it was glorious. Then he went overseas for two months. At first, we smsed daily, and used MSN Messenger enthusiastically. then it trickled down to the odd email. Finally, it waned to sporadic SMSs when we were drunk or lonely. And then one day I smsed him and got this reply: 'Hey babe. I'm buying fresh lobster at the market. Hope every thing's good in your world. take Care X '

I knew it was over...
I had been "take cared" , and when you've been take cared, you simply get your coat and leave quietly. Otherwise you risk being a 'Person who just doesn't get it ' and these are the ppl who earn the unfortunate name of 'the psycho' in dating folklore.
When the guy you're seeing finishes an sms, e-mail or conversation with Take Care, he's saying: Hey' we've had fun, but Ive moved on, so look after yourself, and, well, don't contact me anymore.

But, But, 'says your heart', it can it not just be him genuinely wishing me health and happiness? sure, it can. For good. because what can you write back to take care? (other than You too?) You can't write squat. It's designed to come across as final,, because it is Final. The genius of the Take Care lies in its subtlety-its at once pleasant and brutal.

When i told my friends I'd been Take cared, no explanation was required. "ouch' said one.'what a coward' said another. was he a coward? well, yes and no. he at least had the decency to use the new universal jargon for 'it's over' . But he also took the liberty of playing Relationship Executioner without asking me whether i also thought our expiry date had been reached. we decide he was an a**-hole. Beneath my tough-girl exterior, i was hurt. But on some level, i knew i deserved my take Care. after all, How many times had i Take cared guys?

Woman take care guys a lot. We're too emotionally aware never to call again(like guys do) so we say something 'nice' instead.(then we never call again) For us, the Take Care is like a 'drive safely' or the 'look after yourself'. Its that motherly thing-its innate.
Know this one? A new guy you 'not really feeling' shows some interest. you say' thanks so much, blah blah, soo busy. Take Care. the words may vary slightly but the formula is the same: we issue the Take care and get on with things, happy it ended sans bad blood. And therein lies the reason we hate getting Take Cared- it has always been our relationship-severing device.
The Take Care isn't a nice thing to experience- but it's a lot better than a deafening silence. so the next time you see or hear those two little words, remember what you said to the last guy you 'weren't into' Because if what you said to him wasn't 'I'm gay', chances are you gave him the Take Care. Seems all really IS fair in love and dating... You Take Care now!!!

p.s. what do u guys think? i have been trying to think of how many Take care's I have sent/received... without even knowing that this is what it meant really!!

The Song!!!

Okay, since everyone thinks of me (yay, i feel so loved) when they hear this song on the radio, I have decided to officially adopt it as my theme song for my blog... its playing on Highveld right now !!!

It would be really cool, if every time someone visited my blog, this song would play, but even if that was technically possible to do, I'm not tech-smart enough to get it done.. sorry!!!

Here are the words to sing along:

RUBY by Kaiser Chiefs

(Da da daaa, da da daaa)

(Da da daaa, da da daaa)

Let it never be said, that romance is dead
Cos there’s so little else occupying my head
There is nothing I need except the function to breathe
But I’m not really fussed, doesn’t matter to me

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do ya, do ya, do ya, do ya
Know what ya doing, doing to me?
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

Due to lack of interest tomorrow is cancelled
Let the clocks be reset and the pendulums held
Cos there’s nothing at all except the space in between
Finding out what you’re called and repeating your name

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do ya, do ya, do ya, do ya
[ Lyrics found on ]

Know what ya doing, doing to me?
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Ahaa-ahaa-ahaa, aaaa

Could it be, could it be that you’re joking with me
And you don’t really see you with me
Could it be, could it be that you’re joking with me
And you don’t really see you with me


Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do ya, do ya, do ya, do ya
Know what ya doing, doing to me?
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do ya, do ya, do ya, do ya
Ahaa-ahaa-ahaa (Da da da, da da da)
Know what ya doing, doing to me?
Ahaa-ahaa-ahaa, aaaa

with love from RUBY !!!! mmwwwaahh :-x :-x

A century old , with alot of Sole!!

My blog officially has 100 posts... and it is now a century old... :) :) Yay for me!!!

Hope you guys all had a fantabulous weekend... I can only sum-up my wknd with one word... FOOD !!! and lots of it!!

By last night, i felt as though i had put on at least five kilos, but my clothes still fit this morning, so, i guess it wasn't that bad, but boy, did i eat alot of Junk food... on Friday afternoon, after the usual family lunch (you know, when everyone is at home be cos of the holiday, so the Friday lunch is as big as a Sunday lunch) yep, that one, I went to the fete in Mayfair (sultan bahu fete)with my brother and his wife, and a cousin of mine. It was dusty, windy and lots of people, but, I got hungry the minute we got there, so i bought those cup-of-corn things that are all over now-adays, then, the smell of freshly popped popcorn was too tempting to resist, so, had to get some, by he time we got home, it was in time for supper... (cant remember what i ate though!)

Saturday was the usual, I work at the family business every sat. morning, then I went out for lunch to Jimmy's , couldn't decide what to have, so i ended up having Kingklip AND prawns... then Shaks phoned to ask if i wanted to go with her to the fete, so, I went again, walked around fro about half an hour, put my nephew on the pony ride, and then we went to her place... We were sitting on her hammock (which is very cool, and you can see all the stars in JHb on a clear night) when we both decided that e were hungry, so we went to Cafe nescafe for supper... But, Sweet-tooth that i am, I didn't feel like having anything savoury, ordered a waffle with Nutella, ice cream and whispers.... it was sooo good!!! oh yeah, and a chocolate cappuccino!!!

Went to the rand Easter show on Sunday with shaks, my sister and bro-in-law and nephew. Briefly this is what i ate: Belgian Waffles, Cheese burger with chips, water, Chip-stix, toffee apple!!! (hey, at least i left out the candy floss right!)

anyway, yesterday, we had visitors family from the plaas) for4 lunch so had a BIG lunch again, and then we were sitting around and decided to go for a movie, but by the time we got to Sandton, the movie had started already, so we did the next best thing... Haagen Dazs... I had the chocolate brownie ... not the best that Ive tasted, but its quite nice!!!

so, that was my wknd in a nut-shell.... I am not in any way obese, I'm really thin, and only weigh 46kgs, so, when i complain about how much i eat people dont believe me, but this weekend was a tad too much, and i pigged out(it was all comfort food ... and i plan on NOT having ANY junk food for the rest of the week... or until i leave for my holiday!!

Men in Trees

I'm sure if everyone knows, but I just loved the series Sex and The City, and was really upset when it ended, so, when i heard that Men in Trees were by the same producers, I eagerly awaited for the pilot...

for those of you that haven't even heard of it? where have you been? definitely not driving on the M1 in JHb, cos there has been this huge billboard advertising it for two months before it began...

Anyway: the story is based on this woman, who is an author of a best-seller, based on what actually men are all about,.... But she has been recently dumped by her Fiancee 9she caught him in bed with someone) and so, she packed up and found herself in Alaska... with a huge shortage of women.... Its quite entertaining, and I can really relate to this woman..

Some things that she said in last weeks episode, really made lots of sense and i think that its something that everyone wants...
"I'm just scared that when it gets better, and i know it will, there wont be anyone to share my joy " ... ( this is also my greatest fear, to be alone)
" you Can't be the best to someone special till You the best to yourself... ( that's why you have to love yourself, before someone else can love you)
this last quote is for all the single friends:
Being alone isn't something to suffer through, its something to celebrate and when the universe will see how happy you are, it will celebrate with you...

Men in Trees is on air, on Thursday evening at 19H30 on DStv series channel 36...

Have a lovely weekend !!!

I miss you !!!

This feeble attempt of a poem is dedicated to 'Loser Guy'

I know i shouldn't, but i do,
I still keep thinking about you...
I know i shouldn't, but i do,
I still want to talk to you..

To tell you all about my day,
all the good and bad...
To hear your voice, see your handsome face,
you were able to make me smile
when i was feeling sad...

I miss getting an sms, or the HELLO on msn...
I miss your sweet "miss u, thinking of u " msgs the most,
I didn't think that i could feel so lost...

I know that there is some other woman, and you probably don't even think about me...
But, for a little while, U made me feel as though i was the most important person in your world, and I made you mine...

I Miss YOU !!!!

The Weekend

I was going to do a really long post, on my exciting weekend, but i have no time... going out for lunch with the crew at work, so, i will just do it briefly....

I went on a hot-air balloon ride ... it was awesome, and so romantic... i spent the sat. nite out with best friend #2 since best friend # 1 was "otherwise occupied" and since we are both recently single again, we went out 'on a date' with each other.... so, following the really cool balloon ride, we watched a sweet chic flick "its a boy/girl thing" (we didnt know what it was all about when we were buyin the tickets) but its was a nice, light comedy, more suitable for teenagers though!!! and then, we had Baglios Pistachio and Bacio Ice-cream yummmm....
on Sunday , had a Honours Class of Biochemistry reunion (yeah, its such a long time ago) that we can have a reunion... and its such fun, and we made such a big noise at JB's at Melrose Arch, that im sure the other ppl having lunch thought we were a crazy bunch!!! sad part , was taht from the 11 of us that studied together, only two us were single, the rest of the bunch came along with significant others... oh well!!!

gotta dash now ..
