I Don’t Like People Very Much
As a teacher I like good-old fashioned blackboards. We have a big one in the centre of town. I had got up early to surprise my son and later my daughter by writing a “Happy 21st Birthday” message on it.
Boy are labels popular these days. In their jealousy and haste to label they are borderline abusive. Why not label men a little more and women a little less.
I have finally begun to understand women don’t like me because they are just plain jealous. I actually like men and enjoy their company. I am a secret nerd. (Serenahttps://youtu.be/oofSnsGkops Williams seems very happy in her marriage. Serena Williams,Alexis O’hanian’s Relationship Timeline) My Dad was a nerd. My daughter proudly declares herself to be a nerd. (I used to be told I was a boffin at school.) Big Bang Theory, Nerd Jokes. I can talk about Star Trek, Bionicles etc much more easily than I can make Stupid Girl conversations about the house etc. I guess I am a bit like Penny in Big Bang in some ways. She really cares about her guy friends and is very protective of them. I suspect I was a bit of a mother hen. I would prefer to see myself as a cool chick 🐥
The Perils of Name/Revenge of the Nerd
“Vengeance is mine.”sayeth the LORD. Deuteronomy 32:35
My daughter tells me the modern term is “dumbarse”. She got banned from a social media site for a week for calling somebody a dumbarse once.
She has coached me how to handle things. (longest week of her life). I tried to teach them to criticise the action not the person. (Mind you I have used the word Bitch rather a lot myself in the last two decades or to be more accurate “know-it-all bitch.” My Dad taught me the grapevine runs both ways.I Heard It Through Tne Grapevine-Marvin Gaye.
I will watch men’s shows. I am interested in what they have to say. I am always striving to learn. I don’t think I know everything already.
I loved Suddenly 30. I used it to try and teach my daughter to value her male friends. I often wondered if I had ever treated a guy like Jenna did on her 13th birthday and did not want her to repeat my mistakes. I have tried to encourage her to marry her best friend one day…I love Safiyah Ngaard, she and her husband seem like best mates.
Somebody has a huge chip on their shoulders about stolen chips/potato fries. Reminds me of Joey on Friends. “ I don’t share chocolate. My best friend has never stopped complaining about me eating a 200g bar of chocolate and not sharing a single piece. Come between me and chocolate you just might lose a limb.
My youngsters were pretty shy too. I taught them both to ask questions as a coping strategy. This is how I have always coped with my shyness. Taking an interest in others I find has helped me a lot. I always felt a bit funny when Antarctica guy came to get me for a meal and I was quietly listening to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. It was like I had been caught with no clothes on. 😆

It makes me think of one of the guys at secondary school. I always liked him but he never seemed interested that way. I had a massive crush on him. He probably witnessed me wearing the bin bag. He had a terrific sense of humour and lovely kind eyes. He just did not seem to see me like that. I gave up. I can still see him tipping his chair. (You don’t get to put this one on me. For me at the time, even shy as I was, I gave it my all.) He always tipped his chair and hid in his cubicle. I told you I always liked the shy ones. I prefer Phoebe and Mike on Friends to Ross and Rachel. I love Mike’s sense of humour.
He handles her eccentricities perfectly… I always identified with Phoebe most. I remember her hassles over trying to return some shoes. I had our finances scrutinised as much as I could by my lawyer, as I did not trust him not to leave booby traps for me. You will not drive me out of this flat. I paid for it with my blood, sweat and tears (literally).
I decided in the end I needed somebody outgoing and my blog tells you just how well that has worked out for me…
I have some difficulties myself,, which I was born with. I confess that I have found things frustrating at times but these days I understand that without my difficulties, I probably would not have my strengths. It scares me to think that I too might have been unkind lacking in empathy as many of the people in this world. (,There can be no greater disability. I do know that one of my biggest regrets was the time I let myself be Caught In The Crowd by Kate Miller Heidke but then I was barely five years old. Some people spend a lifetime never learning that lesson. Yet I never let the bullying I have received over the years turn me into somebody who might behave the same way. I hope I used my own experiences to make me a better person. I grew out of that type of behaviour at five years old.
I use 2 labels:
1: Not an A’hole
2:A’hole- People whose inner beast is allowed to run the show.
I’ll let you guess in which category many
politicians and celebrities sit.

So there you have it, my big secret. I have been secretly in love with a right winger/ possible Nazi for decades.
Told you I was pretty boring… Don’t tell my youngsters. I am supposed to be horrified by right wingers. It would ruin my street cred…
😆 Like I ever had any.
