WOMEN'S DAY WISH-LIST

  • Fatter paycheque (ha! ha! ha!)
  • Slimmer waistline (fat chance, I am a wrong-type-of-food-addict + can't bear to waste kids' leftovers)
  • Uninterrupted sleep for seven hours at night (OK, since this is a fantasy, make that eight)
  • Obedient daughters (as in not-always-having-to-shout-at-them-and-separate-them-when-they-are-at-each-other's-throats)
  • Peace at home (will automatically follow the above)
  • Strangers not calling me Aunty
  • Starting on some serious ACADEMIC reading and writing and getting noticed in "the right circles" (The ACADEMIC world depends on the 3 Ps - Ph.Ds, Publications and PR)

SERIOUSLY, THOUGH, WISHING FOR PEACE AND HEALTH AND HAPPINESS FOR ALL OF US ON THIS ONLY PLANET WE HAVE.

Yes, but all your comments are mostly like talking back to yourself, how does one respond? One has to assume, then, that you are a rambling (woh!)man and in need of advice, as I am doing:)I share most of your interests though, see now I am talking about myself, a completely self-defeating blogging. Is a blog there for "self-expression"? Give it a SERIOUS thought, like I have just done!:)
And what could one say about women (since it's one of ur obsessions as I see)? There are so many, of all shapes and sizes, and to complicate things further, many of them have a mind of their own! Utterly difficult I say, to COMMUNICATE! As I see them, they are at present (at least the salaried variety) form a very interesting and often beautiful bunch of second-category citizens. They simply pay less tax! This privilege is inexplicable to me, seriously! I mean why a person should earn more for the same job? And for a reason that's hardly more than a cliche`? If you people have some iota of righteousness left, you should stand up and vote for EQUAL rights, not MORE that comes as a left-handed gift from the state. Well, signing off after this very profound observation having really DEEP civil-social implications!
