Reiterative cups of tea

It's never that bad... sometimes all we need is a little perspective.

1. Someone may be nice enough, but that doesn't make them nice enough.

2. Being "Dubaiian" and being "Western" are two very very unrelated concepts.

3. "You're not supposed to look like your jeans, your jeans are supposed to look like you!"

4. Some words carry too much responsibility to be uttered carelessly.

5. You always have a choice. (A repeat I believe, but reiteration is sometimes warranted...)

6. No matter how fun the game was, if you lost, you still lost.

7. Tea can be a big hassle or tea can be simple and chill.

8. Silly problems often require silly solutions.

9. If one has not entered a radio competition, one is unlikely to have won a Mazda 6 on the radio. If one does in fact win a Mazda 6, one should use it for the purposes of conveying yellow roses.

10. Your lack of ability to spell a word doesn't make you any less allowed to use it.

11. A refusal to acknowledge certain weather conditions in certain places is a normal reaction to a consistent climatic abnormality.

12. One must be cut-throat when attempting to secure coveted free tickets for a friend.

13. Waking up on the right side of bed is often associated with a yester-evening of great wine, good company and a hopeless card game.

14. Being a good friend can take on many forms, most of which are unfortunately and unforeseeably misinterpreted.

Artistically coded

"You've been drifting for a long long time..."

1. When one starts one's day on the wrong side of one's bed, one must do all one can to minimise the length of one's said day.

2. Therapy can be stumbled upon by the most unsuspecting of people in the most unsuspecting of places.

3. Music is often a safe alternative to conversation in the morning.

4. When sending a message, employ as much code as coherently possible; you never know who you might have sent it to by mistake instead.

5. When the stars are aligned correctly, a series of playful cryptic exchanges can result in finding oneself surrounded by more flowers than ever previously fathomed.

6. Art is defined as art when someone believes it to be so.

7. Suggesting a bigger size is never an option.

8. Although often associated, being honest and being blunt are two very very different things.

9. It is best to avoid transparent clothing when shopping for your daily wardrobe.

10. On rare events, certain menu items taste much better than they look. In times of famishment/selfishness, one much keep this information deceptively confidential.

11. Crazy behaviour, it seems, is more acceptable than previously thought.

12. Be careful what you throw at people:

Symbolically Rosey

"Just a minute of your time, yes I've been known to delude myself, so let me put those rose-coloured glasses to the test....."

1. The security of stability helps significantly in keeping one sane.

2. Traffic lights and elevators are the unwitting catalysts of most life-changing events.

3. "Yellow roses were long used as a symbol for jealousy and dying love."

4. One often represses memories which one prefers not to remember. Especially those involving cones or cupcakes.

5. A car is not smarter than you.

6. Toffee-nut lattes are like summer flings: fun while they last and odd-tasting out of season.

7. A happy mask is rarely a good disguise.

8. Great ideas unshared might as well never have been.

9. Indirect communication may at times be more courageous than the direct kind.

10. You may believe you are speaking cryptically, but you may actually be 'speaking' in the language of someone who is listening.

11. Not knowing where you're going is not so bad if you are going there with someone else:

Silent garnishes

Sometimes sequences of events, although seemingly random, may fit snugly and quite alarmingly into the big picture.......

1. A bottle of wine is only as good as the company, yes, but also the food you eat it with.

2. When eating fancy food, one must find a way to distinguish between garnish, decoration and preparation.

3. Terrible service and exceptional service can co-exist in the same day. The memory of the latter far outweighs the memory of the former.

4. You can never go wrong when ordering lobster.

5. When one is in a hurry, one somehow becomes a traffic magnet.

6. Owed favours, although appreciative, do have an expiry date.

7. 'Table for 6' can become 'table for 7' with a smile and excessive compliments to the hostess.

8. Men see cars the same way women see jewelry: a safer endroit where to invest their love.

9. Silently willing someone to stay is simply not enough to get them to stay.

10. Waking up in the morning to a lack of pancakes, coffee or kisses is a modern form of torture.

11. Ordering a cake is serious business.

12. "Don't try to weasel your way out of something, you will just end up weaseling your way into something much worse."

13. Even when placed on a to-do list, things are consistently easier said than done.

Raging Blatant Superheroes

More and more wisdom coming from more and more sources; even the Rolling Stones have a nugget or two to offer...

1. "Perception is more important than what actually is."

3. When one plans to go somewhere "out of the way" where they are surrounded by no-one they know, one will undoubtedly bump into everyone they know.

4. If you feel guilty about not having seen someone, chances are they are feeling guilty too. Make the first move.

5. The beach is not so awful after all...

6. ... and a tan can only be achieved in the absence of sunscreen.

7. "When you opt for musical therapy, what you are left with after it's all passed are beautiful songs laced with poignantly negative feelings."

8. Cryptic wall posts render the act of posting on someone's wall much more calculating.

9. Folding laundry while inebriated requires approximately 3.46 times as much time and 4.39 times as much energy as when attempted sober.

10. An empty wine bar leaves plenty of space for 'interesting' conversation.

11. Fireworks are expensive.

12. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

13. The only person to spot your mistake will be the one person who will hold it against you :)

14. The one Friday night you choose not to go out is the same Friday night on which you will be unable to fall asleep anytime before 6:38am.

15. "You shouldn't have to be anything other than totally content without even the teeniest exception. You shouldn't care about any guy who isn't a raging, blatant superhero. That's what we need in life, anything else is simply not worth bothering with. "

16. One must always apologize if one feels that they have behaved badly.
