I am alive bunnies!
The move out of my flat is complete- but my Glugster’s garage is full of boxes and such that now need to be unpacked! I am making progress- but I think I’ll start on that next week.
Gotta love this toon…

We are going to the game farm this weekend and I can’t wait for the break! I may also try and twist my Glugster’s arm to go to the Sexpo tomorrow night!

Life Interferes… For A Bit…

I’m feeling a little, erm… “off” and I have so much to do that I’ve been putting off- including moving the last of my stuff out of the flat and into my home with my Glugster (I’m supposed to be all out by next Tuesday)!
In true Angel style, procrastination rules.
The knucklehead is on holiday, so I’m sleeping a little later in the mornings than I am used to- which is nice- but it makes for shitty traffic!
I’m having the most dreadful dreams that wake me up at 4 in the morning- and when I manage to get back to sleep they continue- like pausing a movie!! WTF!?!?!! And I’m someone who never remembers dreaming at all!!!
We have a very formal wedding to attend in a couple of weeks time and neither my Glugs or I have anything to wear yet! Don’t even get me started on trying to find something- I had a simple dress in mind but do you think I could find it anywhere?!!!? I don’t want red or black because the theme is red black and silver and the bridesmaids are in black, so I wanted blue or turquoise, or even pink or purple. And this particular style suits me, and its a little flattering for me as I’m no supermodel… So yesterday, after we’d been to the flat and moved and packed boxes, we visited no less than three shopping malls and 7 dress shops, I came home empty handed. For one thing, the gowns are way too sparkly and shiny- which I love, but its not what I want for this wedding. And a large majority of the gowns have either spaghetti straps or no straps- and I need at least some strap to cover my bra. And I do NOT want sleeves! Enough on that…

I am so tired that I’m falling asleep at work!!!
I haven’t finished with my attempt at a VLOG…
I have a few memes due…
I so want to tell you all about introducing my Glugs’ evil puppies to my furbabies on Wednesday! Ooh- its BlogGirls on Sunday, and Sweets, Ydnic and I were going to drive together! I so badly wanted to bake cupcakes to take with me… and then I had to cancel because there is still so much I need to move out of the flat and neither my Glugs’ or I can take any time off!!!
Here’s something to play with while I take a few days off!

You Are 80% Normal About Sex

You’re so normal about sex, it’s a little scary.

Your sexual attitudes and experiences match up with most other people.

Like everyone else, you’re a little naughty and a little traditional.

You enjoy sex, but you’re not a total freak about it!

Sowff Effrikuh Rocks, Bunnies!

Last week some time, Expensive Mistakes Cheap Thrills came up with this here meme to list reasons she loves her country after she’d given a blogful to a wanker who started an “S A Sux” type of site (and no, I didn’t even go there and I won’t link them)!

She then tagged Caz, who tagged Charmskool (at least… I think Caz tagged Charmskool) who then tagged me. Blue Sunflower did the list too and ALSO tagged me!

So erm… Am I not blogging enough that I’m being double and triple tagged lately!!?!?

Anyhoodle, I said it’d have to wait for this week as I already had 5 posts lined up and “scheduled” when I got tagged- and since I’m doing mine long after everyone else I’ll prolly be listing stuff that’s already been said… But here it is. Five reasons I love being a Sowff Effrikun.

1. We have kick-ass musicians and some of my all time favourite artists are local! There’s Wonderboom, Boo, Seether, Springbok Nude Girls, Prime Circle, Zen Arcade… and these are just a very few of my favourites!

2. Granted, I- personally- do not really like the sunshine and the heat, and I have a ridiculously fair English skin and have never had a tan in my life, that said we do have incredible weather! The fact that I can take Damien to the coast (not the Cape coast, obviously, which is freezing at the best of times) in the middle of winter and he can still swim in the sea is awesome for a water-baby like him. We really do live in an exquisitely beautiful country.

3. I love the fact that you can drive out of a major city centre- often for less than an hour- and be in a game reserve! I know of maybe five game reserves and parks of various types and sizes within an hour’s drive of my home.

4. Food! We have incredible food. And who can argue when it come to pap and sauce with a braai?! And boerewors! And biltong! Ooh and marmite… and malva-pudding! And our wines are magnificent! And chutney! And fresh fruit and veggies in just about every shop you go to. And you can visit any number of exceptional restaurants and order a steak the size of your dinner-plate and NOT have to take out a loan to afford it. I’ve heard more than once that other countries do not have red meat as freely available or as affordable as it is here. And I do love a good steak.

5. And last but not least- my Glugster is a Sowff Effrikun! Corny, I know, but very valid since I won’t live anywhere he isn’t!

So you wanna know what’s weird… I really, REALLY, battled to come up with this list! It was really hard to pinpoint specifics. Just to be clear- I am not negative, and I have no intention of emigrating or anything as I really have no reason to and I love this country… but all the things I truly love that are REALLY important to me- are not necessarily uniquely South African… does that make sense?!

I’m not tagging anyone as it seems a lot of people tagged themselves anyway, and I think just about everyone I read has done it too.

Party Like A Hippie…

Last night was The Cow’s birthday party!
Yeah baby!!!
I can’t remember when last I danced so much… Oh wait- it was prolly at The Cow’s party last year!!
da Bruvva went with us as he had no plans for the night before Heritage Day, and the knucklehead and my Glugster wore hippie-style wigs! Mine and the Knucklehead’s tie-dyed T-shirts were gifts from the company that da bruvva and my Sister C work for after we helped by acting in their corporate hippie-themed movie (which is pretty damn funny)! How’s that for timing!?! I rented a few things for us to add, like the beads and the big peace-signs and my gilet and my Glugs’ waistcoat. One suprise for the evening was seeing a colleague at the party! It really is a small little world innit…!!!?! Another suprise was my allowing the Knucklehead to have a beer. I am still sorta kicking myself for allowing my arm to be twisted as it broke all my rules… and I have a suspicion he drank a lot more as he kept “disappearing” and he was asleep rather early- very unlike him. He was also rather zombified today, and after coming home from visiting a friend for a couple of hours, he threw up and went to sleep! Suspicious, no?
The Cow and her other half (The Bull) have always been the knucklehead’s “weekend parents” and before they hald their own calves, they would pick up the knucklehead to spend the weekend with them, giving me some much needed time to myself! They’d take him to the racetrack with the knucklehead helping out in the pits with The Bull, and The Cow would play LEGO till all hours of the morning with an often inexhaustible Damien!
They are some of my very dearest friendss and I love them to death!
The Cow LOVES costume parties- some of you may remember last year’s “movies” theme, and me dressed as a drag queen– and last night was no exception. The theme this year was “hippies” and everyone went all out. It was such a party- as always! Thanx Cow!
Pop round to her blog sometime. She’s not a frequent poster- as you can imagine with a daughter going on 5, 2 year old twin sons, and working full time!

Annie Oakley Rides Again!

Yes- I know its not everybody’s cup of tea, and no- I still have no intention of buying a gun.

It is a company team building thing, and its a personal confidence building thing. Its immensely challenging and hitting the targets is really very satisfying!

Never mind being better at something than your boss is when he/ she is more clued up in the office than you are, LOL.
