There have been a couple of recurring themes of note lately, firstly the theme of friends..... girl friends in particular... not boyfriend and girlfriend but "girlfriends" "confidantes" "bff;s" and "biotches". Of course it makes one reflect on ones own personal relationships and the highs and lows we all experience when involved with people we like to call friends... how do we make friends? How do we keep lifelong friendships interesting and meaningful? How do we end those friendships that become toxic or even just bland and uninspiring?
There's so much ground to cover here and y'all would be sleeping on your keyboards if I went into every detail that pops up in my vast array of thoughts on the subject. Suffice to say it's complicated, I'm pretty much an instant judge of character which can sometimes lead to tricky situations. I'm an open minded person and will give anyone a chance, sometimes I decide too soon that a person will be my BFF and therefore end up with the tricky breakup when I discover they are really shallow and crazy... or sometimes the opposite occurs and it takes a while but that person I was a little leery of becomes a BFF!!!! totally!!!!! I have a lot of friends that I still keep in touch with, if only via the internet and FB... I love that though.. we can still say Hi.. and I can let them know when I'll be in the area so we can get together for a knees up!!! That's what leads me to this post (as well as reading other meaningful posts on friends)... I am going home to England soon and have
OK then, the second trend I am seeing over the blogosphere is secrets... yes dirty little secrets, hidden away in the depths of the minds of the writer.. this only brings me to one conclusion.. that I am one nosey freakin' biotch... I can't stand it!!!! We all have secrets I am sure of that... but what is it that makes something a secret? Is it a fact that you may know which cannot be disclosed to anyone because of the ramifications... like someone may get fired or arrested or something... or is it just a little snippet of gossip that may cause a little embarrassment for a short while and therefore you don't want it getting out and tarnishing your reputation? Just spill already... I can honestly say there isn't one secret that I have learned that would actually ruin a person.. well almost... but it's not like I can do anything with the secrets I've learned???? I'm not a mastermind of blackmail or skulduggery!!! So I guess my point is... just tell me what the hell your secret is and I'll offer my advice... like dear Abby.... only it's Dear McGilly. I'll keep it to myself... not really.. but I will change names and circumstances so as not to cause red faces and ridiculous excuses.
If you have a problem with a friend or you have an embarrassing secret please feel free to email me or comment and i will most certainly offer a guaranteed answer to the problem... I'm old and wise... you will not be disappointed and if you are ... well who gives a shit, you didn't pay for my services. Come on... spill the beans.. you know you want to!!!!!!!!!
Stop Press... I have just been reminded that today is JT's Birthday!!!!
