I had the pleasure of being taken out to lunch today.
Nice… Dining at a Dee Why Cafe is one of the Northern Beaches greatest pleasures!!! Waterfront views – stunning food. Mmmmmm.
I went with 3 significant members of the women’s department. This may not be unusual given that I am a
girl woman and all. Still, as I have mentioned before I’m not especially girly… not given to interests in fashion or shopping, reasonably domestic but not an interior decorating style guru etc.
So, I’m sitting at the table with 3 girly girls, one of them a former model… one of them the head of our women’s department and the other a young girl who is all giggles and smiles and prettiness and all of them sold out to women’s ministry… a ministry I steer clear of for the sheer estrogen factor. And they’re taking me out for lunch. Now, don’t get me wrong, they are all awesome chicks! Fabulous in fact, it’s just that I just felt a little out of place!!!
There was common ground… Family, travelling, work and our joint project, the women’s dept e-zine which is how I ended up there, I did the tech stuff for it and they were saying “Cheers love!”
To be happily honest it was a great lunch. You know, kind of relationship building…
Still, I doubt I’ll be at the next Women’s Ministry event.
There’s just not enough technology or crime drama.
My mum was telling me about a women’s conference she went to, which by the way was advertised with a brochure full of beautiful smilng women with perfect hair, where they got little gift bags with perfume samples, chocolates and discount vouchers for flowers and a purple pen with Ansvar written on the side .
All too girly for me. Not to mention all those poor women being turned into marketing targets.

hmmm …. how long was this lunch? I can almost see the deep breathing setting in at around the hour mark :)
