Evasive Action

What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?

A’ha, I see what’s going on here! If I write it, it won’t be a secret anymore!

There’s a few personal things I haven’t told anyone, certainly not directly. There’s stuff I’ve alluded to recently, maybe even that I am a little embarrassed about. Does that make it a secret? I haven’t told them because I haven’t been asked and it doesn’t feel worth mentioning.

As a lawyer it always amuses me when I hear the “for Data Protection” line from people in shops or on the phone. It makes me laugh cause you ask them what part of the Data Protection Act they’re talking about and they never know why they need to keep that secret.

At the beginning of September I was bound by a confidentiality agreement at work. Indeed, I actually signed two that month for different reasons. I felt SO important! One of them was very easy to keep to, the other (which I’m surprised hasn’t hit at least the regional news yet) was really hard because I knew it was going to adversely affect people, especially in the short term.

Of course, this subject is even more pertinent given the news overnight (UK time) that Apple will reject an order to unlock one of its customer’s iPhones as a matter of national security.  I’m not sure what I think about this.  It’s the whole “Big Brother versus National Security” debate.  How much should we be prepared to forgo our civil liberties in favour of a greater good?  I’m not quite sure and I want to be safe and have nothing to hide, but I don’t like the idea of the FBI abusing pictures of Moo!  Maybe that’s one for another time.

Anyone want to play Truth or Dare in the comments?!

I’m trying not to feel you
But you just brushed by
And if you dare to cross that line you know
My toes would step on fire

Ohh sizzle when it’s face on face
And skin on skin
I’m trying to keep you out
And I’m trying to keep me in

One hundred million eyes
Behind these walls
Watching you
Hearing you
Knowing you

Keep me a secret
Keep me out your arms
Keep my kisses off your lipstick
Stop me swallowing your charms
Keep yourself a secret
Lock up all your doors
I’ll keep you out of my dreams
Just you keep me out of yours

Needn’t not to notice you
But you grab my eye
Don’t let embraces linger
Try to keep our arms untied

See there you go again
You’re making me mad
‘Cos I’m drawn to this danger
Oh, it’s making me mad

One hundred million reasons to ignore
Of wanting to be with you
One hundred million eyes
Behind these walls
Watching you
Hearing you
Knowing you

Keep me a secret
Keep me out your arms
Keep my kisses off your lipstick
Stop me swallowing your charms
Keep yourself a secret
Lock up all your doors
I’ll keep you out of my dreams
Just you keep me out of yours

All I’m asking is for nothing
And if nothing is enough for you
Oh leave it I said keep you inside your head
Under your breath

Keep me a secret
Keep me out your arms
Keep my kisses off your lipstick
Stop me swallowing your charms
Keep yourself a secret
Lock up all your doors
I’ll keep you out of my dreams
Just you keep me out of yours
