I was asked why I wanted a parrot so badly, and why an African Gray. I said I needed something to talk to that will talk to me in a language that I can understand; it has to be an A.G. because it is neither too big nor too small, neither too quiet nor too chatty, and it's gray.
I am officially tired of playing catch up with human beings. They are simply too fast for me, and too occupied with things that annoy me e.g IPHONES, tweeting, hourly facebook status updating, hourly facebook status updating using iphone, texting, Christmas shopping, maids issues, apartments, bigger apartments, bungalows with garden and a pool, shopping, holiday trips to do more shopping, finding Mr/Ms Right/Perfect, eating, partying/clubbing, getting botox injections, getting drunk, BEING HAPPY, etc, etc.
D is the most annoying of them all. His iphone, blackberry, laptop, car, online shopping catalogues, social networks, conference calls, and company functions have completely filled up his time. We have not had an uninterrupted dinner for YEARS, and when I was trying to show him old pictures of me and my old school that someone had posted on Facebook, he was too busy checking out Armani online to even take a glance. Maybe it's me. Maybe I'm the only one who's dying to see old pictures of my partner. Everyone else is too busy making sure they have not fallen behind.
I desperately need a J-like person in my life - my real physical life. Someone I can see, hear, touch and smell. Someone who makes his own blackberry syrup to go with his favorite ice-cream, someone who KNOWS ME THROUGH AND THROUGH. Someone who can maintain eye contact with another human being for 5 minutes without needing to steal glances at his mobile, blackberry, ipad, ieverything!!! I need to see some eyes!!!
Sea, if you weren't my sister, I'd marry you in a heartbeat. I wouldn't even be bothered that you're female.
