A moonstone bracelet to cure all complaints

I’ve just met my first real life Emo Boy.  Wow.  The black hair, the guy liner, the bad posture, the mumbling…

Funnily enough, what surprised me is that he took one look at the bracelet I wear on my left hand next to my gold bangle, given to me recently by Cath.  “That is a Moonstone bracelet, you know…” says EmoBoy.  “No, really?  I had no idea.” I replied, rolling my eyes.  “it is a very feminine gemstone, it suits you” he said in a depressed manner, following with a list of things it can cure:

  • It will help you sleep better (I have been going to bed before 10pm since having this here bracelet, come to think of it).
  • When you wake up in the morning you won’t feel like smothering someone’s puppy either, hey (wow, and I haven’t!).
  • It gives you energy when you need it (well, I have been waking up at 5.30am every morning since I moved in with Sam.
  • In the olden days Moonstone was worn by travelers to guide them on a journey they had no expectations of (funny, I’ve become a nomad of late actually).
  • Have you noticed any animals drawing nearer to you than usual? (If Odey the gay parrot counts, attacking my toes, then yes. Also, tonight he was facsinated with my pyjama pants and kept climbing all over my legs when I was lying on the couch)

Anyway, so I have a moonstone bracelet.  It is beautiful and I love it and apparently it loves me back according to Emo Boy.  He could “feel the vibe”.  Cath says its also been washed of any bad aura’s.  Now all I need is a flowing skirt, a scarf and some Jesus sandals to wear while I do my yoga and I would make my hippie friend Amy so proud.

This afternoon though, the moonstone did F.A. to help me with my run of bad luck.  I was stranded out of the office due to renovations, so decided to take a walk to security and their boom gate to wait for Sam the SIL who had my car.  She got herself lost in the city, then got stuck in traffic, then witnessed an accident while I was outside in the freezing cold sans jersey.  Then it started to rain.  Once again I drove home naked due to my clothes being drenched.  Kiff.  Not.

But I have a moonstone bracelet.  And it will bring me good luck and fortune.  The internet tells me so.  Maybe if I howl at the moon and stars I’ll have a better chance of tomorrow being a better day.

    For the record: i DO wear scarves in my hair, i do flip flops instead of Jesus sandals, and i DONT wear long skirts because they make me look shorter than i already am.

    But i’d still be proud 🙂

  2. Shebee says:

    aiMS, I’m as short as you but even *I* wear long flowy skirts, I love them!

    (But don’t tell anyone).

    Second post in a row that I mention you… is my subconscious trying to tell me we need to catch up more often?

    haha, that was very funny. And it might have been the moonstone. No really, it might. It could also have been the passing pig…with wings

  5. Amy says:

    Haha…. perhaps it does mean we need to catch up more often !

    And who would have guessed young Dash there would be laughing at our hippie ideas?

    I’m warning you hippie’s. I’ve seen what you will become. I have evidence of it. It’s real. Bruce from the Annapurna Sanctuary trek. The dogs at the airport will smell the ganja coming out of your pores, and you will think that it’s normal to have a crucifix on one arm, the grim reaper on the other and you’ll walk around carrying a gold club with the vague notion someone cares about a book on golfing in Asia

  7. Amy says:

    Yes Dash, all that will happen – and it will be awesome! And i’ll learn to read Tarot cards and i’ll burn sandalwood inscence at all hours of the day and possible dreadlock my hair…. yep, imagine it now….

  8. dash says:

    it can be done for 2000R here! Seriously considering it. Just because no one back home would every believe that I dreaded my hair

  9. Shebee says:

    I’VE had my hair dreaded before. It hurts like a motherfucker and you have a headache for two weeks solid from all the pulling and pressure. IT looks pretty cool though.
