I Thought Paula Abdul Said That Opposites Attract?

Talk abounds of late about the new agey bit of silliness The Secret. Or 'The Not-So-Secret' given how every one keeps banging on about it. The 'Universal Law of Attraction' that says we 'attract' the things that happen to us based on a principle of 'like attracts like'. Unless you're a magnet I guess.

So, here are some of the things I have 'attracted' to myself in the past few days:
  • Poverty.
  • A mild, and by no means life threatening, brief dose of constipation.
  • Rain apparently, because it's thundering down outside.
  • Wet socks. (see above)
  • A work financial audit on Monday. (I have no need to be nervous about this, but I am anyway. It's that feeling of being judged I guess.)
  • Celibacy. Which needs fixing, stat.


Things I plan on attracting to myself this weekend are:

In the spirit of attraction, I'm puppy-sitting Rex this weekend (and have done for the past three days) at Chez Steve's while he and Bec tromp through the wilds of Tasmania. As you do. Fancy coming over on Sat (or Sun) afternoon for a late and lazy lunch (prepared by moi of course) and a play with the Pup? Beer and or wine supplied.

yYes!! Saturday? I'm doing the pub knitting thing on Sunday arvo. Which is the most fun you can have with 2 needles and some string.

Excuse us everybody while Mikey and I just arrange our social calendar. Chat amongst yourselves, m'kay?

Mikey (TLE) said...

Cool. Let me know what time. I was thiking one-ish, but I'm flexible. Ooh err!

Eat a light brekkie, I'm thinking chicken and exotic field mushrooms in a garlic/paprika/barest hint of cardamom cream sauce with fresh pasta. And some Italian parsley. Paired with a good buttery chardonnay (bring Michael guy...). I will forego the chicken for you if you like.

Rex is looking very cute. Might take him for a walk afterward. Two poofs walking a papillon in Darlinghurst... sooo uber gay. It would help if you can knit and walk at the same time?

The Other Andrew said...

I can knit, walk, sing, tap dance and do Cher impressions - given the right incentive.

Jodie Sorrell said...

Ohh...mikey(tle) that lunch sound yummy!

You're making us hungry.

The Other Andrew said...

He can cook and is a highly paid lawyer. Mikey, answer me this, why did we ever break up?... :)

(Don't answer that.)

nash said...

Just wondering what you plan on buying with $106.70?

nash said...

Oh, so he's your lovely ex

The Other Andrew said...

Mmmmmm, $106.70.... lemme see.... maybe a really good lap dance. Can you get guy on guy lap dances? With a happy ending?

Yes, I gave Mikey (the lovely ex) that name - because he is.

nash said...

If I find a really good male lap dancer this weekend I'll be sure to let you know. If he does it for 1/2 price does that constitute a happy ending?

Enjoy your lunch with (the lovely ex)

yaniboy said...

It's obviously a mark of my filthy mind that I did consider that if you played your cards right you could get somebody to buy you drinks, take you home, have sex with you... and then pay you for it...

I'm a bad man...

Keith said...

That's gayer than two poofs walking a papillon in Darlinghurst...

So my new catchphrase.

Oh, and fuck the secret.

Michael Guy said...

Oh "The Secret" has been a big help here!

I'm using it to level off a wobbly sidetable. It's just the right thickness.

:: "The Secret" + OPRAH = will not buy ::

Dave Daniels said...

Maybe on this walk you could break out singing like Ethel Merman. And knitting. You could start a new trend.

James said...

Isn't interesting that in celibacy we have a word that defines NOT having sex, but don't have one for the opposite?

Jodie Sorrell said...

Hows the plan of attaching yourself to beer going?

nash said...

Well I looked for you walking the Papillon in Darlinghurst as you knitted, sang, tap-danced and Chered your impressions, but all I found was a 1/2 price lap dancer. Maybe next weekend... (given the right incentive)

Michael said...

Q: What's gayer than two poofs walking a Papillon in Darlinghurst?

A: One gets his knitting out.

A: And it's fuscia leg warmers.

A: And the Papillon's name is Liza.

It's like a game that could go on and on.

Michael said...

Finally, yes, that is what Paula Abdul sang, but keep in mind she was probably full of animal tranquilizers and Midol at the time.

The Other Andrew said...

So, Nash. Pet. I need the details of this half price lap dance.

As it turned out we didn't walk The Pap, just got stuck into the top shelf Chardonnay and then a most satisfying Pinot instead.

Love the Luke pic. :)

The Other Andrew said...

Kong, I thought it might appeal. :)

We're at the point on Brothers & Sisters now where he is out of the show. :( We just had the Valentine's Day ep 2 weeks back and now no more Scotty. Too sad!
