Desperate House-...daughter?

What a week it's been!

You know, I did a very dry post before this one, read it through and thought to myself "Shit. Even I wouldn't want to read that voluntarily."
So out the window it went!

What's been happening, eh?

Well for starters Mom's in India right now.
You wouldn't believe me if I told you why.
(Once again, the following can only happen with THIS family.)
My mum's friend is going back to India for good. This friend has 2 dogs (both stinky, whiny and totally without bladder control) and 1 cat (far too aloof for my liking).
Now this friend and her husband want to take the animals with them in the cabin.
But here's the catch. The plane only allows one animal per person. So guess who got a free seat to India??

Lucky MOM!

Sheesh. Some people have all the luck. A daughter like me...a free ride to India...bah!

So I'm left to play house with three males who have issues.
My brother has the sniffles. So my dad was like "Let's make him that home remedy that your Mom makes."
I was like "Cool let's do it!"
And we both just stood there...
"Er..how do you make it?"
"No idea, Dad."
"Ok, let's try putting a bit of this...aaand a bit of that.."
My poor brother actually has to drink that.

My dad's become the house-husband version of a backseat driver. I don't have to elaborate. You get the idea.

Kelso has had yet another haircut. I don't know what we're feeding him, but his hair grows SUPER fast! We need to shave his hair off every 2 months!

Before..............................and .............................................After

I could be wrong, but he looks mighty unhappy about the haircut. I had him sitting and just balefully staring at me for 20 minutes before I noticed he was being far too quiet. Of course I had to go cheer him up by telling him he looked gorgeous and I still loved him and he was the cutest doggie in the world.

Oh I've also had hols for a week. These hols are deviously named "One Week Break" when in fact they're meant for you to CATCH UP on your readings..which obviously means no ones done didley.
All I'm close to finishing is Season 7 of Voyager.
Speaking of Voyager, I think I might be watching too much of it. I actually had a dream I was being assimilated =S And what did I do?
"Uh uh. You are NOT assimilating me." -Ghetto headshake and finger wag-
Stop laughing (and stop thinking I'm nuts).

You know I was chatting with a friend recently and he casually mentioned I'm a lot like Monica from Friends.
I pride myself on being more of a Phoebe, so naturally, I had strong objections.
And then I remembered something..

Remember the house guests? The ones that could have potentially ruined my birthday?
Well, when they had come, they all used the bathroom.
[Slight Digression- I am EXTREMELY particular about bathrooms. Chances are my room, my desk, my cupboard will be a royal mess but my bathrooms will be spotless and sparkling. You know how they say "Judge a man by the shoes he wears"? Screw that. Judge him by the condition his bathroom is in. You won't go wrong.]

So when I needed to use it, I entered and I was stunned. Not in a good way. Stunned in a bad way. Very bad way.

A Great Scene of Devastation met my eyes. It was....horrendous.
There was muck everywhere. There were dirty footprints. Oh god..I can't go on.
Then something snapped in me. I shut the door quietly.
I came out 10 minutes later. My mom came up to me "Where were you?? What were you doing??"
I just pointed to inside the bathroom.
It was clean.
It was beautiful once again.
There was equilibrium.

I am SO Monica.

One last thing that's been on my mind.
How much do you guys trust your instincts?
How is it that we immediately trust Person A so implicitly and not Person B (considering context, circumstance etc etc was the same)?
Usually I know immediately if I'll become fast friends with them or make annoying small talk and then wait for one of us to f.o. (In this case I'm usually the first one to buzz off coz some people just don't have a bloody clue and still persist with the agonizing small talk..it KILLS me!)
What goes on in our unconscious when it comes to making snap judgements or judgements guided by our 'instinct'?

Just some food for thought..

Enjoy the weekend.......and keep that bathroom clean.

I'm watching you.

Oh that poor dog! lol. You know he's just thinking "I'm so going to get my ass kicked at the dog park. I look like a dork. Watch your favorite shoes." He's just so cute! We have a mascot at work, a coworker's pomeranian and she's always shaved and looks like a puppy instead of a 14 year old.

I am sooo not Monica. I'm kind of an early Rachel myself: you know, a bit of a disaster.

You're watching me? (gets up, shuts the door to her bathroom)

Sigh the only free trips I get are up and down the elevator in my condo.

The way people express themselves voluntarily or involuntarily. That shift of the eye. Our instinct is our true armor as it can sense what is not visible to the other 5 senses. It automaticlly rolls the other person down in our individual matrix of likes and dislikes, loves and hates et al. That is the reason we may like someone whom we havent even spoken to but just seen crossing the street for an instant. The fall of his/her hair. The smile. The "relating" for no reason. That is the reason we dont like certain individuals even though they do a lot of good "stuff" for us. Maybe the phrase "First impression is the last impression" was coined from the way our instinct forms an impression. Now whether we trust our instinct or not is another point. But the instinct is never wrong. Has yours been ever?

Ye like Gustav? Hmm..We have a thinker in you along with worrier and panic merchant? :) All at 22? Attagurl!

i hate wet bathrooms.. i will NOT go in if its wet.

i dunno mahi.. people change.. and thats why i get so scared to get close to anyone.. i mean either theyre all interested to be friends and suddenly one day they turn cold.. and you suddenly hang loose...

what happens then>?..

plus.. when you DO make great friends... i friggin ALWAYS have to end up moving... AGAIN!

sometimes i just hate life. and wasting emotions.

(*evil chuckle*)

jay - :O how could u say that?? i did it out of good intentions! et tu jay?

metria - hahaha he looks constantly disgruntled now! yup hes seen himself..but he just quickly looked away...perhaps it was too much for him to take?

magpie - very nicely put..couldnt have said it better myself! ahh gustav...exactly which gustav are we talking about :S yep u got it right...worrier, thinker (;) ) and a panic merchant..im like the female version of adrian monk! (very funny show- 'Monk')

grafx - argh i know what u mean..all my closest and best friends have moved..it sucks!
but u know what thats life..we need to keep taking leap of faiths coz if we dont, then theres nothing else to do!
i hate wasting emotions too..its such a waste of energy but whattodo? we cant really choose to chanel our emotions in any particular direction!

I am gonna clean my bathroom too as I am planning to invite a girl over. Hope she likes it, if ever she gonna need to use...=) But in any case will be disciplined now on wards in this issue, as now I know girls hate unclean bathrooms..lol..=)

I believe most things start with instincts. And I also believe these instincts won't come over night....=)

I see the title, and I'm thinking Oh. My. God.
Quite possibly on the menu:

- Debauchery with various semi-hot neighbours
- Arson
- Sexual mishaps with hamsters
- Cooking which leads to all of the above in various combinations

NOTHING of the sort.

Tou should totally be in advertising you nice-catchy-title-to-switch-and-bait-your-blogging-fans person you!

p.s. That thing about bathrooms? Totally true - even for girls. I mean hair on the wet floor? EW!

A girl once told me I reminded her of Chandler.Maybe it was my stupid jokes and amazing ability to 'not get any' that brought on the inference.Or maybe it was because she fancied herself as a Monica.And now I come across another Monica?? Hmmm...interesting ;-)
