we are gathered here – virtually, yes thanks for reminding – for the benefits on one mortal expressing whatever she feels appropriate to be shared anonymously to random freaks. No, not you coz you read my blog.. and you are Oh!sem. Oh, that is my version of super AWESOME by the way.
Anyways, today’s *almost-noon-morning mode is: LiFe.
It was quite a
quite quiet in-the-car-moment as i was driving to work this morning with momsie by the side. (Yes, we carpool. Call me the Environment Activist. You have to when the parking tickets cost me lunch and breakfast here in the centre of Kuala Lumpur). The only audible things were mom tapping to the beat of the music, me humming softly of any songs aired and the sounds from the radio.
Oh, and there’s Alanis Morissette’s Ironic. Love her, she rocks. That song, the lyrics tweak one part of my bubbly brain.
One thing about me, i think a lot. tonnes. gazillions matters when i drive or in the bathroom/toilet/shower/WC/etc. Stuff just come sporadically, spontaneously electrifying my mind to just think one step deeper than the usual by-default 2% used brain of mine.
To continue.. that songs brought to today’s mode. As i mentioned earlier, LiFe. For those you youngsters who happen to read this, or know nothing about how Oh!Sem the songs of the 90s are, here are the lyrics of that Legendary piece.
An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay
It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn’t it ironic … don’t you think
It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
Who would’ve thought … it figures
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
‘Well isn’t this nice…’
And isn’t it ironic … don’t you think
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face
It’s a traffic jam when you’re already late
It’s a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It’s meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
A little too ironic… and yeah I really do think…
Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out.
Cool huh??! You don’t get it? Well, i feel you my friend. But then…
…in contrary to those who feels nothing towards this words, it all make sense to me. These are everyday things that wasn’t reported in the news, newspapers, tabloids or even the 5 minutes radio news updates.
You may read and feels nothing at all out of this. Or to some of you, you FELT it. Right there. The right SPOT in your fragile sensitive heart. Or some just couldn’t admit it. But it’s fine… At least you know that I have shared Alanis Morissette song called Ironic from the 90s. (again i stress, we have Oh!sem stuff in the 90s. Don’t let me start with the more OH!SEM things on the 60s through 80s!)
You want to know why I share this on a Monday *almost-noon-morning? It’s that feeling of creating awareness that we human can find ways to create/advice/seek/help others to find happiness BUT it is all actually in the hands of GOD. One man’s poison is another man’s poison. One’s goner is another man’s keeper.
No one knows of how the day(s) will unfold itself.
Love GOD at your utmost capacity.
Signing off with great love,
NB: *Almost-noon-morning. It was 11:37 when i started but now, looking at my pc’s clock, it’s 12:42pm.
