Momentum

When a boulder is stationary it has virtually no momentum. But give it but a slight push & the speed at which it picks up momentum is both spectacular & inevitable esp when it's on a slope.

I am that boulder. But I don't feel particularly momentus at the moment.

Trouble is I'm not sure I'm ready to be pushed.. but I hate regret more than anything else in the world & I refuse to live by any of the coulda, shoulda, woulda's that usually plague the minds of the many.. so whilst I was out & about.. in the spirit of forward momentum & networking I did something that surprised even me - I gave my number to a guy completely out of my league. The first time since my break-up. Momentus hardly feels adequate to describe it.

Ultimately whether or not Olli chooses to call.. at least I went home without any regrets and a sense of winning a small victory.

Arghhhh..... turn your RSS feed back on would you? If you're not in google reader you don't exist! ;)

So, did Olli call the stationary boulder?

That's a step further than most go so I would say call or no call you are ahead of the pack.

But yes I do hope he called...

[I'm imagining an aquaintance of mine in London, also called Olli who is hot, hot, so I REALLY hope he called :P ]

Yes, at least turn on your rss feed. I know a workaround, but then I'm resisting doing that.

So did Olli call? Or is Olli constantly calling you that you hardly have time to blog?
