Just Wondering Why...

* why so many people say I resemble Katherine Hepburn
- of course, it's extremely flattering; unfortunately for me, it's NOT true...

Katherine Hepburn
* why everybody, but me, can whistle...
* why the majority of people watching the Annecy marathon
last weekend wore trainers and tracksuits...
* why, if I prefer a degree of privacy, do I blog..?
* why Sarkozy seems more interested in being popular
than being effective...
Does he really think that by insulting Obama/Merkel/Zapatero...
we'll no longer focus on how little he's done
in terms of this country's economy, unemployment rate,
homelessness and crime..?

* why I sometimes I forget how lucky I am...

* why so many people feel obliged to share their personal
(as in, private) life with strangers (as in, neighbours)...

* why I can't leave the house without walking through a
cloud of scent (Nothing too overpowering, just a spritz up into the air)...

* why so many people I know don't seem to know the difference
between monologue and conversation...
the spoken exchange of thoughts, opinions, and feelings; talk.
a prolonged talk or discourse by a single speaker,
particularly one dominating or monopolizing a conversation..!

* why everybody, but me, can wink...
* why people keep refering to Susan Boyle as unattractive.
The GREAT singers were never about image.
Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and their ilk were singers first and foremost
When you got to see them in person it did not occur to expect them to be any more
than they were. People did not expect a plastic doll...

* why people are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
People who get on in this world are the people who get up
and look for the circumstances they want, and,
if they can’t find them, make them...
* why so many of us are too busy watching how people see us
to just be ourselves...
Are wondering why..?
I'd love to know...

Hello India. Looks like you had a lovely Easter time. How flattering to be a look alike of Katherine Hepburn! She has a lovely bone structure. So you my friend perhaps also have a lovely bone structure so people say you look like her.
Many a time I have been asked if I come from Sri Lanka. Then again some have asked if I come from East Africa I wonder why.

If it makes you feel any better, I cannot whistle either.

your post definitely gets us to thinking on some profound and simple ideas all at the same time...

lovely post!

oh, i can't whistle either, but when my brother whistles you can here him from quite a distance away. i guess it's not hereditary:)

Right now, painting my apartment I'm wondering how much the rooms have shrunk because of painting since 1912 when the house was built.

As for your questions:

- If people say you resemble KH, obviously it's because on some level you do.

- I can't whistle.

- They're all wannabes. Track suits make them feel like they actually do something.

- I would be a hermit if not for Mr. Jazz who forces me to have a social life, social animal that he is. And yet, I blog and love it.

- Sarkozy is a creep. End of story. I can't believe y'all voted for him over Ségolène. Of course, we voted for Harper, so who the hell am I to talk.

- Because we all forget now and then. Besides whining is good for the soul - when I wallow in "patheticness" it takes me about five minutes to annoy myself and snap out of it.

- People don't understand the meaning of privacy anymore.

- Scent should be applied so that if you're more than 2 feet from the person wearing it you can't smell it. That's my rule at any rate. Scent is for the person wearing it - and those who get within 2 feet, not for the world at large.

- Cause it'S all about them.

- Well that I can do ;-)

- Susan Boyle. Poor woman. Flavour of the month all of a sudden. Next month's has been. She has an amazing voice, hopefully she has someone to keep the sharks at bay. And actually, she's not that bad looking, it's all a question of clothes and makeup really. And personally, I think Ella was beautiful. Are you a fan of Ella?

- Because people refuse to take responsibility for their lives. You can blame your parents or whoever until you're 21. After that, get over yourself and deal with it already!

- Because many of us just have too much time on their hands.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Oh, and you are my clone. It's suddenly obvious to me.

What a wonderful post.

I especially loved the monologue/conversation. So true. Been guilty of it myself sometimes.

There must be something about you that reminds people of Kate Hepburn. Lucky you!
