I have the most fantastic stalking skills. I guess it’s not something to be proud of but I’m always amazed at what I can accomplish if I just put my mind to it. I should have been a detective. So who wants to know where Diego Forlán lives? I’ve got details on the house, the estate, the district, which municipality is falls under, which highway gets there faster; and for those of you on a budget, which bus routes to take... all this and I’ve never even been to Madrid.
It’s Friday already and as I sit here at my desk, acutely aware that I should at the very least pretend to be working, I can’t help but think of how fast this year went... one week blurring into another until the months fade away into obscurity. Sometimes it’s even difficult to fathom that we hosted the World Cup this year because it seems like a life-time ago.
When I was much younger and still at school, every day seemed like a week and it felt like every week dragged on for a month. Now, being somewhat older, I see that time means nothing and I have to wonder, is this how it’s always been? I’d like to speak to a few older people and get their opinion on this... has time as we know it begun moving at a more rapid pace as we move into the 21st century, or has time always moved on at the same pace and it’s just our perceptions of it (and our contemporary lifestyles) that has changed?
In any case, I’m looking forward to my two minutes at home (because that’s exactly what my weekend’s feel like) because this past month has been a nightmare with long 20 hour days and little sleep. For the first time in a very very long time I will not be going on a holiday this December... we usually have our holidays booked in December or January but since I’ve just come from a holiday, I’ll be at the office for most of December. I guess it’s going to be weird working alone... but there’s a getaway lined up in February so all is not lost.
There is a saying "the truth always reveals itself"... and throughout history, time and time again, this has proven to be true. It's still a wonder then, how (and why) do people think that they can do something and get away with it *wink-wink* *nudge-nudge* *cough-wikileaks*. There are just way too many gossipy people on earth and with the advent of technology, such secrets can not and will not remain kept or hidden.
And oh yeah, I think Anni Dewani's husband had her murdered for the insurance money.
