Where is that Bloody Bird???

Seriously, I am looking but I cant see it??

It has been manic at work. Incredibly busy and somewhat stressful. I have, at present, a very low tolerance for people. I should elaborate, I have a low tolerance for people who, in my opinion, are particularly ridiculous and absurd.

Knitting and blogging has provided an escape from the stress. Until I had the displeasure of receiving an email from another blogger asking me to explain a comment I made on this blog. The funny thing about the email is that the blogger told me what my comment meant. ESP, a great talent to have, wish I had it!

I didnt feel it necessary to reply. I mean really what is the point when someone has so obviously read my mind and knows what I am thinking (I wonder if she has seen the bird??) and what my comment really meant (insert sarcasm here). I just dont think they were really interested in knowing the truth.

So Shazmina, you have some 'splaining to do!

So I will 'splain. Not because I feel I need to. Not because I think you necessarily want to know. But mainly because I dont like being told what I am thinking or feeling (insert hands on hips and stamping of right foot). Only I know that. For me, that comment was a throw away line. A nod to my, obviously misunderstood, sense of humour. How someone chooses to interpret that comment is up to them. And I am truly ok with that. I can't change your perception or your reality, nor do I want to. I respect your right to read what you like into what I write.

That is what makes Human Beings such wonderful and interesting creatures. Life would be boring if we were all the same, dont you think?

Ahhhh, so there is that damned bird!! I found it after all!

I LOVE this post. I especially love the hands on hips foot stamping - which I do all the time - literally!! (and jokingly!)

Shaz, your sarcasm is one of your redeeming features. And I love you for it. I think I've seem you stamp your foot with your hands on ur hips in real life and on more than one occassion too. I feel blessed.

And PS I love that ur in HR and you have a thing about people. You're all class.

So are you the People's Front of Judea or the Judean People's Front? (I hope that you are familiar with Monty Python).

Shazmina Bendi said...

Hmmm very interesting Soulcradler. While I agree with the sentiment of the People's Front of Judea, I think I am more aligned with the Judean People's Front!!

Some people just need to CHILL OUT... since when did life get so serious? Keep the funny stuff coming, Shaz!

Babe, you don't need to 'splain yourself to anyone! x

Nora said...

PS: I love the photo too. Er, exactly what is going on... 'splain pls. :)

BrownPants said...

I can see you paid close attention to my advice darling ;)
I'd ignore me too.
I think we should have a foot stamp-off. I don't mean to depreciate your talents, but I would totally beat you.

I would like to see a stamp off between Shazmina and Brownpants. Can I referee please? Or maybe I could be an impartial cheerleader with my very own knitted pom poms?
