No-one really knows how or why the Ohai (Kthxbai) came to power, but powerful it is indeed.*
For those inclined to embrace the power of the law of attraction, the Ohai (Kthxbai) is simply an extension most often used via the network of social media to further empower one's intentions.
Like a random sighting of the Lucky Bus, the Ohai (Kthxbai) has proven time and time again that all you have to do is ask. I've seen it at work many times on Twitter from aiding the manifestation of the perfect rental to something else I can't think of right now.
The picture above is of a sheet that was painted by my beautiful circle of women at my Blessingway. Yes, I think it is hilarious that it features a Twitter bird, Ohai and Kthxbai. But that's how we roll. Well, that's how I roll and possibly some attendees were taking the piss. Or not. Either way.
Now here's the thing about that particular Ohai (Kthxbai). Due to the fact that pregnancy renders me incapable of function, the sheet remained at my friend's house until after our baby was born. We had a beautiful (excruciating) homebirth, but I'm sure had the Ohai (Kthxbai) been present it would have been painless. I'll keep telling myself that.
Yesterday I tweeted:
Ohai universe. Here's what's gonna happen. Hub will be back on road soon. I will take 4 kids to the supermarket and it will be fine. Much baking and party prep will get done. I will remember to wrap presents. Kthxbai.
And what do you think happened?
After a series of misadventures (none of which were caused by anyone in particular) the supertrucker hubster finally hit the road for home.
I took 4 kids to the supermarket and they were great, AND I didn't end up buying extra stuff to bribe them with. They were lovely.
I made and froze 6 pizza bases. I caramelised a leek to make put on posh pizzas for my big girl's birthday celebration on Friday. I made a batch of too many biscuits for the freezer and we ate some too. I wrapped birthday presents.
My kids played beautifully together (mostly) and by the time I went to bed my floors were clean.
What more could a 1950's housewife (minus the nylons, housedress, heels and sexist husband) ask for?
Try it. You'll be amazed! Or not. Up to you.
* Actually quite possibly someone remembers what inspired the Ohai (Kthxbai). I don't, but I think it's ace. And funny.
