I'm not really one to read the horoscopes; I personally think it's silly, but hey, if other people choose to base their lives on it then they are very well free to do so. I crossed the horoscopes section while flipping through a magazine today, but this time it sort of caught my eye. I remember a few years back on the verge of entering 2004, I had such a hopeful outlook for the coming year that I pretty much believed that '04 was going to be my year. 12 months later, it turns out that it wasn't, so I figured that 2005 would be my year. Again, it wasn't, so I was more hopeful for 2006. Nope. 2007? Nope. So now i've got my eyes set on 2008, and if this year doesn't turn out to be super-duper-great, I figure i'll just drop the whole idea of any year being my year.
Anyway; back to the horoscopes. As I flipped the page, I saw my star sign highlighted and the first line read:
It's been promising to happen for sometime now but that break you have been wishing for is finally about to come your way...
No way! Maybe I should start reading these things huh? While reading it my wife was next to me so I excitedly told her this has got to be one of the greatest horoscopes ever, and since i've been whining to her every year about how my year never actually came around, she sort of got excited too. I continued reading out loud:
...finally about to come your way thanks to a chance meeting with a blonde woman on the 14th of the month.
Err... Now my wife started giving me angry looks, but I decided that I should continue since I started anyway...
Things will move quickly after that and you will need to ensure your progress isn't hampered by any jealous associates who may not be able to deal with your new found success and friend.
By now I could see my wife getting pretty ticked off, and I figured that she probably was the so-called "jealous associate", but hey, lets read the rest of this and see where it goes:
By the end of the month you may have to plan towards a change of residence (ouch!) due to family issues (double ouch!) but that's likely to be the only negative in an otherwise positive start to 2008.
By now I could see small storm clouds floating above my wife's head and I figured I should leave the room quickly before something breaks. Ah. Well, it doesn't matter. This year is finally my year! Yes; i'll let you all know how/when I manage to make that million dollars i've been looking forward to year after year.
On another note; take a look at the column on the right. See the Flickr badge? Click on it (or go to www.flickr.com/ammar456) and you can see some of the photos I take every now and then - mostly shots here and there around Bahrain :) Drop a comment, let me know what you think. Thanks!
