I shot him again!!!


Imagesource: Unknown

On the shittiest day of the year (excuse my french), I always try to assassinate the concept with a smile and a prayer that the twenty four hours fly by in a blink…
And before all of you give me that “it’s a commercialized day, it’s a day like any other”… don’t!... It’s a damn good excuse to tell someone you love them even if they already know; to show them you care; to give wings to your imagination…
The same way Jews don’t care about Christmas, I respect those that don’t pay attention to Valentines… however, please do not try enforce your religion on those that do unless you want the same kind of results in Jerusalem!

Anyways…
Back to the start of my day…
I unfortunately didn’t wake up with the wild contagious rash that I asked for in order to skip work (one of my colleagues did though which makes me seriously worry about the angel administration upstairs… God needs to hire Quality Managers to control prayer processing – I reckon it’s become as bad as the Portuguese political system…
As I was saying; I looked out the window to a beautiful day and cursed Saint Peter for getting into the Valentine’s spirit…
Deciding that the day was much too beautiful to be moody, I decided to straighten my hair and put on a dress for the first time in seven years…
It’s not that I don’t like dresses… it’s just that I don’t like them on me…
They make me feel… girly…
Considering the option was “it’s now or never” I thought… screw it! No one’s paying attention anyway and I wore a dress for the first time since high school uniform...

Things were going great until a colleague of mine decided to show me her wedding photos...
Desperate times call for desperate measures!
I bought a slab of chocolate and all the connotations that go with it and then I bought pink daisies for the people that make my life bearable and that had the misfortune of having to put up with me through the day…
Ironically I found out that besides Valentines Day it’s also Sexual Dysfunction day… No comments!

It’s almost midnight and for the first time during today I’m feeling sad…
Someone upstairs must’ve lost the miracle request I’ve been resending all day…
In fact, they screwed up so that Cupid was downright cruel...
So I shot the bastard again this year...
It’s the yearly Valentine’s competition to see which of the two of us shoot each other first.
So far I’m undefeated, he hasn’t gotten me once!
Oh well… there’s always next year.

OK let's start

First, i did noticed you in dress n boots, and i must say you were very pretty, you already are but you did not become less pretty as you were today.

Second, i've also noticed the pink daisies, me and a colleague were trying to see when would be our turn to receive one, we didn't :( but is also true that we didn't put up with you all day, so you are forgived ;)

Third, there's always next year, and the other, and the other :P

You saved the dress from the trashcan with that compliment - Thank-You!
I would´ve loved to have given everyone a bouquet of red roses but my bank account wouldn´t have allowed it... nor would the florest, I bought the last daisies she had... trust me when I say I really would´ve loved to have given everyone flowers!
As for next... Cupid better practise his aim if he ever plans on shooting me! :)

Although male attention is great on Valentines..valentines day is about love in general-for family, friends etc..and that my dear buds is something you have no lack of...you are very loved by me and a whole lot more! So let it be a day that you smile because you are cherished!

Love, Blondie

Ainda ontem disse isto a uma amiga que se queixa como tu...

O que não faltam aí são homens decentes e sozinhos, se calhar não têm é a "qualidade" que exiges. Concordo que as pessoas sejam exigentes mas depois não se queixem...

Tu dizes que estas sempre a ganhar ao cupido, mas tens de jogar com ele de igual para igual. Para o ano, tenta jogar com ele sem estares fechada na tua concha.

Sunshine said...

Blondie!!! You always know the right thing to say! I´d say Valentine´s Day hasn´t changed much since we were in primary school... and you know me, regardless of it´s connotations, I make the best of it every year! ;) I miss you!
I could survive not without pain, if all my loves died but I´d go completely insane without my friends.

Luis: E tens toda razão amigo! Há quem se queixe que não vê quando anda de olhos vendados...
Não vou dizer que não conheço homens decentes mas a maioria não estão própriamente sozinhos e os que restam não estão própriamente interessados... The pendullum swings both ways.
Uma coisa é certa, eu tenho todo o direito de exigir qualidade embora penso que a tua connotação e a minha talvez difere... Exigo um homem a valer porque também sou uma mulher a valer, não exigo os impossiveis, apenas exigo o que sou capaz de dar... talvez por ai é que o meu amigo Cupido não consegue jogar comigo - falta-lhe qualidade!:P... Ele tem mais um ano para procurar, eu espero.
Obrigada pelo o teu contributo Luis, apesar de tudo concordo plenamente contigo, um beijinho enorme.

Tu DEVES de ser exigente porque se não o fores corres o risco de ser atingida pelo cupido e continuares insatisfeita ;)

Acho que é tudo uma questão de pré-disposição.
Diz-se que o amor aparece qdo menos se espera mas se nos fechar-mos em casa, certamente que não irá aparecer...

Sunshine said...

LOLOL... agora essa também conheço! Alias, o traquina gosta de fazer batota e atinge-me quando não estou á espera... depois tenho o enorme trabalho de convencer o coração de desistir de quem não merece!
Se fosse uma questão de pré-disposição já andava a fazer um homem feliz á muito tempo!!!
Não sou pessoa de fechar-me em casa mas também não corro atrás de ninguem. Nunca tive medo de ser a primeira a tomar um passo mas acredito que o esforço é de dois... já não há quem lute por outra pessoa.
E lá estou eu a resmungar outra vez, com tanto pano para mangas ainda surge mais um post! :P

I share your feelings about Valentine's day cheri

but i reckon you will prob get shot when you least expect it, so maybe next year you'll be writing a completely different Valentine's post :-)

Sunshine said...

The little bugger has a terrible aim... he shoots me when i´m not looking and then I suffer to convince my heart to let go of those that ain´t worth it... I haven´t lost hope on his improvement though, he´s got a whole year to practise! ;)

Bem esse malandreco do cupido antes de ser atingido por ti, ferrou-me com uma das setas dele, com respeito a ser um dia comercial, tens muita razão, sabes quando gostamos de alguém temos por obrigação dize-lo todos os dias senão corremos o risco de o fazer só neste dia

Sunshine said...

Pois Migo! E ainda se confia o amor num malandreco que atira ás cegas! :P
Espero que essa ferida não tenha doido muito... muito pelo contrário ;)

Baby killer! :)

Klatuu o embuçado said...

P. S. Se não tivesses mudado o nº de telemóvel... eu tinha-te aparecido do tecto com asinhas pretas! JAJAJAJAJAJA!!!
... se para o ano ainda estiveres na mesma... eu prometo ajudar... :)=

Sunshine said...

Vais lhe morder e deixar-lo á minha porta? ou vais me convidar for num jantar romantico? :P

Klatuu o embuçado said...

Ai, ai... tu ainda hás-de ser a minha desgraça! Não devias ter crescido! :)=
