I was going to do a write-up of my birthday yesterday, but really what is there to tell beyond the fact that I went to the movies to see Bridesmaids (not very funny!). This was followed by browsing some of my favourite London bookstores and then having a very yummy dinner at Coq d’Argent. So a good day all around, but years from now I wouldn’t deem it entirely memorable. What is more memorable and pressing to note is that I am no longer speaking with Basherter. Things came to a head today via our conversation on Skype. Much to […]

Damaged Goods

AirportGuy reappeared a few weeks ago. Long-time readers will know that I met him at the airport in Montserrat (December 2006) and started a whirlwind romance that I knew instinctively was doomed almost from the beginning. I say this now in hindsight, but there were clear signs at the beginning that all was not well in Paradise. But hey, I got caught up in the moment and didn’t do my normal due diligence.

Calls and text messages from MrFixItGuy have all but stopped. Let’s hope they don’t start again.  For a while there, he was acting like a love sick teenage girl and calling all the time.

MrFixItGuy called again on Saturday. I didn’t answer the land line calls but I ended up speaking to him as he called my mobile number much later from a number I didn’t recognise. So basically I was tricked into the conversation. Again, he just wanted to check in and say hello and oh yeah, ask for another chance. There was a major whiff of desperation and genuineness in his voice and a few month ago when I wasn’t as strong as I am now, I would have agreed. But I held my ground and reiterated all the reasons why we […]

Turn Me On

Another lovely Norah Jones song: Like a flower waiting to bloom Like a lightbulb in a dark room I’m just sitting here waiting for you To come home and turn me on Like the desert waiting for the rain Like a school kid waiting for the spring I’m just sitting here waiting for you To come on home and turn me on My poor heart, it’s been so dark since you been gone After all, you’re the one who turns me off You’re the only one who can turn me back on My hi-fi’s waiting for a new tune The […]
