  • Pre-bedtime conversations

    After dinner as the husband sprawls across the couch watching television with the intensity of an owl eye-ing a mouse. The husband who has exams in a week…

    Me: Oh, it does look like your books are studying itself.
    Voon: Oh, and it seems to be doing a real good job.

    Silence. He actually looked like he meant what he said. He looks right on serious! Not a hint of a smile.

    I am thinking I am this close to throwing my shoe at him, except I don’t wear shoes at home.

    And when I couldn’t hold it in any longer – I burst out laughing.

    What is he? Like 12 years old?

    Me: Do you still read my blog?
    Voon: No…
    Me: Why not? Have you lost interest in all that I have to share on the worldwide web?
    Voon: But you talk so much everyday already!

    Silence.

    I am so exasperated…..

    He continues to ignore me. And continues staring into the idiot box. Worse – the channel surfing has started… none of which to my favourite channels… Flick… Flick… Flick…

    What is this? Have we been married for a billion years?!

    I am not even going to start on the pre-bedtime conversation we were having the other day when he called my conversation one of no substance… NON-SUBSTANCE it seems!

    Almost 4 months… that is how long since we have now been married.

  • Voon’s 34th

    Happy Birthday Sweetheart!

  • All that’s left is something in between a wheeze and a squeak?!!!

    Such cruelty. Such atrocity. Such monstrosity!

    Barbaric.

    Brutal.

    Inhumane.

    Ok – I am out of words.

    I am describing this surgical procedure called de-barking; the removal of a dog’s vocal cords for the owner’s convenience! Because it barks too much?! OH! Come one!

    See this article here.

    I can’t imagine this furry one not barking – EVER!

  • Now, even the final one has lost its battle…

    When just earlier this week – there was still a glimmer of hope.

    I guess it was not meant to be, just yet.

    Still in a dark and broody place.

    Adding on to my darkness and broodiness – there is Haiti. I feel a tightening of my heart every single time. I am keeping them in my thoughts and prayers.

    I chose to donate to this one – Concern Worldwide’s Haiti Earthquake Emergency Appeal.

  • And there were three…

    And I am a dark and broody place now clinging on to hope of all hopes for the one.

    Well, I guess I’ll find out soon enough…
