How many Rolos?

I confess, I didn't count them. I ate them - quickly.
I can tell you that there is an uneven number of Rolos in the packet!

Is the uneven number of Rolos an attempt by Nestle to make the "Last Rolo" moment occur more often?

Well, I have now seen the "Last Rolo" as a solid silver ornament and on a necklace. It is a romantic thought, but a Rolo around the neck? mmm... I can definitely vouch for the Rolo in the packet - it tastes good!

Would you share your last Rolo?

Soon it will be Valentine's day and many people will flock to retail outlets to spoil their Valentine with a romantic (and expensive) gift. Some will spend the night wining and dining in restaurants that will exclusively be filled with couples.

But really, wouldn't you just rather have a "last Rolo moment"? Remember the advert with the animated characters where they share the Rolo? The one character says, "It's my last one, but you can have it." They also had another advert with a a guy and girl sitting in the cinema, the guy proceeds to give the girl the last Rolo, but then a babe sits down next to hima and he tries to get the Rolo out of the girl's mouth.

The Rolo advert have always stuck in my mind. It was such an endearing advert. One that almost made you go out and buy a packet. There is something about being able to share "the last Rolo", but what if you don't have anyone you can share it with? Do you just avoid the last Rolo and gobble it up quickly or save it for the day you actually may stumble upon someone you would like to share it with?

A life less ordinary?

Sometimes I wonder what my life would've been like if I had chosen to be a little more "ordinary/normal".

I guess I would've ended up being married by 22, with 2 kids by the age of 25, no career and being a housewife. There is definitely nothing wrong with wanting to be the mom/the wife/the caretaker, but is that always enough? Do people that got married young sometimes feel that they have missed out on something/life?

I can't even imagine having to change my chaotic lifestyle to accommodate someone special, because lets face it, I'm not the easiest person in the world to get along with or to adjust to. I'm just too much of an Aries.

In 10 years I have probably had more relationships that failed than what I care to remember. Finally, now, I am tired of dating.

The one thing that I've learnt in the last few years is that, boyfriends come and go, but my cat is always there. So, when I get home, I will have a tequila to that.

A Public Affair - Facebook Dating Status

Going through a breakup is hard, no matter the circumstances, but when it is a public Facebook affair - it becomes a little harder.

The whole changing of the "Facebook Dating Status" was more than just a little traumatic for me. It made the breakup public before I was ready to face it. I fear the worst when things like this are out of my control. I don't want pity emails landing up in my inbox. I'm ok, or will be ok, I'm not quite sure yet.

I guess I'll take time off from dating for now - untill after my holiday in Europe. I think I just need to clear my head and get back to clubbing and hanging out with my friends - for now.
