i am not worried

things about which i am not worried:

~ putin.
~ the ukraine.
~ the coming nutella shortage (we have an 8 kilo stockpile).
~ ebola.
~ the middle east (i probably should be worried about this).
~ running out of gin (we were just in germany and i stocked up).
~ aging gracefully.
~ bills.

things which worry me a little bit:

~ finding the right shampoo.
~ what if i never find the right shampoo?
~ that my daughter's camera is way better than mine.
~ pixel-wise, mine still has that thing where i choose where it focuses.
~ the size of the new iPhone.
~ what if i never get to cape town again?

things which i worry about a lot:

~ stepping on kittens (i have an entirely too vivid picture in my head of the result of this).
~ cats getting run over.
~ there whereabouts of the feral hen.
~ how behind my child is in math and german thanks to the school she used to attend.
~ how can you know as a parent how bad a school really is?
~ will karma bite that dominatrix principal in the ass? (i know it will, but i'd honestly like to know when.)
~ with the amount of tax we pay, why couldn't our local school get its act together?

ahh, the jazz life in manila.

remind me again why we don't live in the world's most liveable city anymore?

* * *

and speaking of which, why do we lie about where we live?
(in my defense, i did live in copenhagen at one time and sabin was born there.)

* * *
the secret life of pronouns.
because words matter.
