The prodigal lady returns

It's true: the bitch is back :)

And before I go any further I have to apologise for the sudden departure. If my mother knew about my rude manners ... wait ... she does. How little has changed.

But a few things HAVE changed. I moved, I gained weight, I quit my old job, I learned all about peace making, lost a few friends along the way and I learned how much I really despise cars without air conditioning.

And I got married. To the love of my life. Freakin' finally. I thought I'd always be the bridesmaid and never the bride; there were so many bridesmaid dresses in my spare bedroom closet that I started wearing them to work at one stage. Let's just call it my eigties desperate fashion mistakes. The eighties are making a comeback any way.

This is a short post just to touch base; I hope I still have some old friends left wanting to read my reflections on, well, me and of course some other things I have experienced this past year as well as things to come. I've started reading posts again of some of the kids who are still on the block and think it's going to take me, well, 500 years to catch up. I can't wait :)

It's good to be back.

So glad that you're back! Congratulations on getting married!

Can't wait to hear about what you've been up to :)

erin said...

YAY! I knew he was the one! Hooray for being backness...

Dan said...

Waaaaaaaaaaait a minute! You stay away for a year and then return with all of this info???

Seriously LT, there is going to have to be some serious catching up to be doing here. I'm expecting nothing more than a 250 page epic blog post to follow.

Good to have you back LT. Its been far to long.

Married!? Sigh. I really am the last single girl. :) I'm going to miss our single girl chats, but I'm so happy for you. Congrats lady! You deserve every happiness.

I was absolutely euphoric to see a comment from you. I'm so glad you're back! (Sent you an email, btw)

Married? Marvellous news. I'm so pleased to see you back with a spark, a twinkle and a new attitude to go with the old one I loved so much.

Have a very, very happy christmas. I will be following, commenting and definitely NOT being a stranger! :)

Sharon McPherson said...

'And I got married.' Whowa!

Love your news! Well done. xx

Gorilla Bananas said...

Congratulations, Ladytruth, I always wondered why you didn't marry that man you were so close to. I hope he's the guy you married!

ladytruth said...

baby amysaurus: thank you and good to see you around here!

erin: I like that word: 'backness'. It's good to be backness :)

Dan: I was thinking more along the lines of a trilogy. I've always been into Tolkien :)

Possum: I'd rather slap you with a sardine, much less painful :) Guess we'll be catching up together then.

OWO: at least you have a song (all the single ladies)! Thanks for the mail!

Matthew: yes, my fingers are itching again. A little out of practise, but I hope to get back to my old form again soon. Glad you'll still be following and commenting!

Sharon: I like that 'well done': now I feel like I've officially caught a man ;)

GB: luckily for the both of us, yes :) No more raunchy date-night tales of vulgarness. Always something to be grateful for!

Judearoo said...

She's BACK!!!!! Hooray! Thanks for the email, doll. I do pop up on here now and again so shall be returning to read your honeyed words of delight.

You got married? What the??!! Details, details etc. Oh and congratualtions too.

Mr. Condescending said...

So good to see you back haha and I got your email. I really was worried you got killed or something. I had all these visions of you getting on one of those south african taxi's you mentioned and ended up getting snatched away or some nonsense.

So good to hear you're back and in good form, MRS. Ladytruth.

Helle Kristine Tumbridge said...

Married? Goodness me. Congratulations to you both. I am 30, and have never even been a bridesmaid, so I must be bottom of the heap... Though Al is still around. We are now in a committed relationship. I know!

Maryx said...

Mrs huh?! Wow congratulations Lady!! That is absolutely awesome news! And yeah, also really really glad you're back. Clearly, we didn't forget about you! =)

PS - You HAVE to catch us up!

ladytruth said...

Judearoo: glad to see you're still around! Was just getting worried all the golden oldies have left the building :)

Mr C: since the soccer during June-July the taxis have been sligtly upgraded to coffins on wheels ;)

Helle Kristine Tumbridge: being a bridesmaid is overrated anyway, especially when the groomsmen are totally hideous. Just hang in there, sista :)

ladytruth said...

Maryx: the catching up will commence as soon as we enter the new year :)

Meagan said...

Oh! You're back! When you commented on my blog I was wondering who this person was that had clearly not been reading my blog. Then I just looked at my comments and realized it was you! Where the heck have you been?! That is crazy that you get married! Can't wait to catch up!

Anonymous said...

I'm quite glad you're back. I'm back as well. Your posts always made me giggle. Congrats on getting married. You the shit.

ladytruth said...

Meagan: let the catching up commence!

joecappelli: Well, raise your glass and here's to backness! :)
