of blown covers

No time today except to drop a quick note to document how he knows about me being anawnimiss. He was suspicious for a long time and I had no idea what gave me away at first but it was this post that confirmed his suspicion. Apparently I’ve told him I think he is a little like Howard Roark.

So much for anonymity!

Sure, I want to pour out my soul, want him to know everything. But I don’t ever want to talk about these things.

I want the transparency, but not the judgment.

That is why he’s not going to read my blog anymore. He promised.

of not knowing

What were you thinking?

I wasn’t. But then again, why must I think so much? It’s an anonymous blog for god’s sake!

Yes, it is, but only for now. Sooner or later someone will figure it out, and what then?

You pause. You don’t care. You really don’t. All you want to do is get things out of your system no matter how much grief the fiancé gives you about washing dirty laundry in public. Wasn’t that supposed to be the idea? Doing what makes you happy? Continue reading of not knowing

of moving up in life

Guess what. Another nomination.

My very own Liebster Award.


Thank you thank you thank you, Aleni! You have no idea how much this means to me 🙂

Oh, and here are the answers to your questions:

Which is your favourite movie?

Lord of the Rings. Every single one of them.

What do you do to unwind at the end of a hard day?

Bitch to the (now) fiancé about people and life in general.

What would be perfect weather for you?

Give me sunshine, any day!

Which task is of highest priority on a Sunday?


Who is your favourite actor?


Which tourist place would you like to visit?


Which is your favorite fruit?

Mulberries. Can’t remember when I ate them last, but I love them!

In which list would you like your blog to feature?

Personal, I guess?

What kind of blogs impress you the most?

The kind that is honest and hard-hitting. Or funny. Funny works too!

If you could change one thing what would it be?

Umm… the fact that I have to pick a handful of bloggers and nominate them for this award. I think I’m going to have to come back and finish this one later!

of a delayed thank you

(Not so) recently, Zainab nominated this blog for a Reader Appreciation award. Obviously, I am on top of the world, what with a wedding on the cards and a sparkly new award logo to flaunt! 

This means I get to share seven interesting things about myself. And these are in addition to the ones I posted here. Awesome.

1. It upsets me to no end when someone says women shouldn’t drive. They clearly haven’t seen me drive.
2. Modesty is overrated. I’m probably the most immodest person you’ve ever seen.
3. I go out of my way to look arrogant, but my friends tell me I’m not convincing enough.
4. I have to win Every. Single. Argument. Even if I know I am wrong.
5. Coffee is not my cup of tea. A cup of tea is!
6. I find it impossible to say no to people. Which makes me a bit of a  pushover.
7. I love wordplay!

All the fun aside, this nomination also puts more responsibility on my threadbare shoulders – I must now nominate some other bloggers for this award. I guess it will take me a while to come up with a solid list of nominations, but I’m very excited about this.

More on this later 🙂

of being found out

You wake up one morning and see a bright orange plus sign at the top right corner of your blog. A new follower! Yay!

You click the orange plus sign, only to feel the earth shift from underneath your feet. It’s him. In the whole wide world, he had to go on and follow this blog! Do you dare to let him find out it is yours? After all the hoo haa about anonymity, it comes to this? Your cover’s probably blown! Continue reading of being found out
