I wrote about Maru at the very beginning of my blog (a whole 5 months ago ~ lol,it feels a lot longer),but I just discovered a video of his again,and once again,I have been attacked by the adorableness that is Maru.

This cat has talent,more than a lot of humans.He kind of reminds me of a fat dude that smokes a lot of weed and then likes to explore stuff.

Look at the video,and his pictures,and tell me you don't also freak on him.Even just a little.Go on,I dare you.

Thursday Thoughts

I know you can't really see,but it's all cloudy and rainy this morning!YAY!

~ We had a braai (bbq) last night at our apartment.We weren't deterred by a few raindrops and even though I wasn't really in the mood for it at the start,it ended up being a really good time,and I again,ate way too much.

~ When I went to kiss JC goodbye this morning,I saw a dead little frog by his foot on the bed.Maya obviously didn't let the rain deter her either last night.It was very sad,because I love frogs.I would have one as a pet if I could.JC was still asleep,so I don't know if I should tell him about the dead frog that slept with him.

~ Yes,that is my one boss' car in the picture above.A Mazda MX-5.And his brother drives a Ford Focus ST.Sigh,I also work here and will sadly never be able to afford either of those cars.Not even 3rd-hand.

~ My holiday bag has been waiting,already packed,since Monday night.I only have to add a few loose items (my camera,make up,reading material,etc.) and I'm done and dusted.I can't wait to see my sister and nephew!

~ I am planning to watch movies the whole night tonight,since even though I have to be up quite early tomorrow,it isn't for work,so I'll be fine.I can't seem to sleep past 7:30am these days anyway.So tonight JC and I are going to cuddle on the couch and watch a whole bunch of movies.The perfect evening,in my mind.

~ Even though I am SO looking forward to my mini-holiday,and can't wait to see my best friend and just relax a bit,I am really dreading leaving JC and Maya for a week.This is the longest we will have been apart since we moved in together,and I have gotten so used to sleeping next to him,that I am going to seriously not be able to sleep without him next to me,and with Maya between my feet.Sadness.

~ I probably won't be blogging every day on my holiday,but I will be keeping you updated as I go along.Afterwards,there will be a big old catch-up with lots of pictures.Bet you're looking forward to that ;)

I am going to admit it...I'm a pussy.I am well and truly a pussy.Pain is not something that I can't endure,even in small quanities.If I get tangles in my hair,I'd almost rather cut all my hair off rather than go through the pain of untangling it with a comb.If I stub my toe,I will moan about it for days.Paper cuts,which,I'm sure you will agree,although small in size,are freaking sore,make me nearly cry.

So it should come as no surprise that I've never had the guts for a tattoo.I have a belly ring,had an upper earring (which I took out after 1 month because the pain was just too much) and I had an eyebrow ring (for about 6 months,until it got infected,out of the blue,and I just took it out),so it's not like I haven't tried to face up to my aversion to pain.But those are quite quick procedures,and if looked after well,cause minimal pain afterwards.

But tattoos are different.In my mind it's like sitting there,and having someone scrape,or puncture me with a sewing needle repeatedly.I don't know if I imagine it worse,or actually easier,than it really is,but I don't think I will ever find out.Because the only way I would have the guts to get a tat,is if I were drunk,and well,that isn't allowed here.So I'm pretty much screwed.

If I were to get a tattoo,my places of choice would be either behind one ear,on my side or on a foot.Kind of like these:

What do you all think about tattoos?Do you have any,or are you planning to get any?

1. Is there a particular smell that turns you on? If so what is it?

English Blazer.It's not a very famous brand or anything,but that stuff goes in my nose and straight down to my girly bits.It's just an instant reaction.

2. Have you ever tried or considered trying a Master Cleanse type method to lose weight?

Not to lose weight as such,but to detox,maybe.But the whole thing just sounds so gross,so I have never actually had the guts to do it.

3. When you're browsing a book store for reading material, do you find yourself checking out a book solely based on the cover design?

Most of the time,yes.But I've also learned that most of the times if the cover looks amazing,the book more than likely sucks.I usually read the back to see the basic gist of the story.

4. Which 80's trend were you least happy to see come back this year; big shoulder pads or neon?

I didn't really wear 80's fashion when it was 80's fashion,but if I had to now,I'd rather wear a little bit of neon.Big shoulder pads are just never really a good idea.Unless you're a maneating,heavily made-up business woman living in a big mansion,or some such place.

5. How long do you think could you disappear for until someone would notice your absence and start looking for you?

About 9 hours,at the longest.

6. Have you ever walked out of a movie and asked for your money back? Which movie(s) and why?

No,never.If I paid for a movie,I watch it to the end,no matter how bad it sucks.Besides,I never pick sucky movies.I have good taste :)

7. Have you ever changed your plans because of something you read in your horoscope?

Nah,it's a fun thing to pass the time (reading your horoscope) but I would never let it rule my life.

Texts from last night

Go to this site,and enjoy the utter randomness (and stupidity) of what some people will send out into the big world of technology.

Post Secret

I heard the most random thing today.My sister told me that a couple that we know through my brother and his wife,have split up,after I think almost 10 years together.The reason?The husband finally came clean and told his wife that he's gay.They both have very high-paying jobs and have 2 houses,one in the city,one by the sea,they share pets,etc,etc.This news really shocked me,so I don't even want to imagine what the woman felt.I mean,they've shared their lives for a long time,and to suddenly be told that nearly everything you shared was based on a HUGE lie,must be earthshattering and life-changing.

But I hope that just like the woman in the postcard above,that woman will see the blessing in this situation,and realise that she's been given a second chance at life.

The weekend in pictures

Maya and I did a lot of lying around,and here you can see her shaven patch on her tummy from her spaying a few weeks back.Luckily the hair is growing in very fast
That little pink mouse mysteriously appears wherever Maya is sleeping
This is what you look like after eating and drinking food equal to your own body weight
Z spent the night at my place on Friday,and we had a very good time.This was just before bed time,as evident in the vacant stare
Big D is very into costumes,even makeshift ones.He thought the tablecloth would make a very good toga for his Greek themed afternoon
This is a genuine smile
This is the smile you get when he wants something,or tries to play cute so you will leave him alone
Z took a little fall,again,and now has a big old bruise on her knee.Here you can see how happy she was after the fall.And oh yeah,don't you just love how she's 8 and already wearing a Playboy shirt?
The Monkey Boy
The Monkey Boy 2
Another "Get out of my face" smile.This smile means the photoshoot is OVER
JC and Big D,enjoying their PB&J sandwiches

And that,in pictures,encompasses my weekend.I spent the whole time playing with the kids,eating my weight in bbq,watching tv and also,sleeping.I don't know what's going on,but I'm in bed at 11pm at the latest and then up at 7:30am at the latest.What the hell?!I'm supposed to still be partying hard and getting in at 4am,and sleeping till 1pm.But no,seems like middle age has attacked me with a vengeance.Oh well,so be it.I just can't be bothered anymore.I'm getting to the point where I'm willing to admit that the company of my family and a laidback braai (bbq),is much more appealing to me than some club.

Hope you all had an amazing weekend,no matter what you did.

Tell me though,do you prefer staying in,or going out?And if you do go out,what do you do when you go out?

It's a holiday today,Freedom Day,so I'm at home,doing the laundry.Again.Seems like every off day I have is filled with laundry,and we're only two people.WTH?!My washing machine is only 3 months old,but its head is already as messed up as mine.The cycle says 28 minutes,but lasts more like an hour.So 4 little loads take like,ALL DAY.Well,just had to get my laundry anger out,and will be posting my nephew pics tomorrow.Have a great day everyone!

The office cat must've sensed I was having a crappy day,so she came in for some cuddles.Love that cat!


Today is Friday,the most looked forward to day of the week (well,except for Saturday) for everyone who has a job.Otherwise,it's basically just another day of the week,nothing special.This Friday is super nice because of the following:

~ My brother,SIL and two nephews are coming tomorrow!I thought they might not be able to make it,but they are still coming,which means only one thing ~ a damn good time.I can't wait to hang out with them all.

~ It's quite cool,and it even rained a bit during my lunch hour.Which is AWESOME!(And I know I'm gona be cuddling close to my human 'electric blanket' tonight!)

~ JC's mom made soup last night,which she gave us some of.Last night I made some 'homemade pita bread' which turned out more like tortilla wraps.Either way,tonight I'm eating soup with my concoction to dip in it.Yummy!

~ JC got his salary yesterday,and is now off for the next week,so that means a happy and relaxed boyfriend.What more could I ask for?

~ It's officially less than 7 days before I depart on my mini-holiday.Can't wait!

~ You guys are all so incredible,and I just relish every single comment from you guys,and all your amazing blogs that I get to read every day.

Ok,that's the good stuff out of the way.For some or another reason (ie.the people I work with),are pissing me off to no end today.Not everyone though.Just three people.But those three are enough to ruin any good will I might have left for my fellow man until I go on holiday.They are seriously testing my patience and I see myself becoming a total bitch to them,without really wanting to.I mean,I've always felt taking the high road is the way to go,but they are just so neverminded and cocky,that it now seems I have to fight fire with fire and the only kind of talk that will get through to them,is bitch talk.Luckily for me,all women are basically fluent in bitch talk,no matter how little you use it.It's something we got along with that whole sixth sense/menstrual period thing.

Baby you light my fire

Lots of blogs I read,that aren't necessarily about interior decorating,have been filled with gorgeous pictures of bedrooms,kitchens,living rooms,bathrooms,etc.And I started thinking about what the one decoration element is that I'm a bit preoccupied with at the moment.

Well,you Northern Hemispherers (not a word,but you know what I mean) must excuse me,since you guys are probably totally assfull of cold weather and winter,but I am looking forward to the coming winter as much as I would look forward to a bowl of nachos after being on a no-carb diet for a year.So yeah,I'm pretty excited.And the one decoration element I am loving,is the fireplace.

Our apartment is way too small for one,and nowhere I've ever lived (which is all of 3 places) has ever had a fireplace (inside at least),but it is a dream of mine to live in a cold place somewhere,and then have a fireplace in every single room.Yup,even in the bathroom.Hell,especially in the bathroom.I mean,just imagine lying in front of a roaring fire,naked as the day God made you,having some 'quality' time with your significant other.Can it get any better?I'm sure it can,but right now,that just seems perfect to me.

{So,without further ado,here are some examples of the lovelies}

Also pretty usefull as storage space it seems

A nifty room divider

See?Fireplace in the bathroom = awesome!
Imagine waking up in a room like this

{And for those who want to put a bit of a modern spin on the old school fireplace,here are some options}

Do any of you have actual fireplaces?Do you use them,or are they basically just a hole in you wall that is used as a home by a lovely family of spiders.


So,I voted yesterday,after lying in bed the whole day,reading.I lie,I wasn't in bed the whole day.I actually dragged my lazy butt around the (very small) apartment,and cleaned a bit.Also,I made it rain a bit last night by actually sorting out my closet.It's the neatest it's been since we moved in 5 months ago.I'm super proud of myself.

For dinner I made pizza,which went down very well with JC,but quite honestly,after making the food,doing the dishes and waiting for JC to finally be ready to eat (he takes forever),I end up not being in the mood for my own food.I'm used to eating my dinner by 6pm,because I've always heard that it's best to eat dinner earlier,whereas JC is used to having his dinner at 8pm or later.That does not work for me!I actually get nightmares if I eat too late.Seriously,it's as if my body is working too hard to process the food and then I can't sleep peacefully.Or something like that.

It is somewhat cooler here today,and there were actually a few small showers of rain,last night and this morning.Nothing to get too excited about,but hopefully tomorrow will bring lots more rain.I love rainy weekends,because that means lots of cuddling!Whether this cuddling is with my boyfriend or my cat,I'm really not too bothered.Either one will do.

My mom and I are getting along SO well these days.I try to go see her every afternoon at lunchtime.We talk and talk and talk,about everything!If there's one good thing that came from my dads' death,it would be that my mom and I now have a much more honest and open relationship.Unfortunately,we are very much alike in personality (except I'm a lot more physically affectionate than she is),so how long this period of peace and serenity will last,is hard to predict.

And then,last,but certainly not least,to all the amazing people who cheered me up through their comments the last couple of guys deserve wings,so I wish I could send you all a can of Red Bull,but you will just have to accept my deepest and most heartfelt thanks.MWAH!!!!!

Wednesday Weirdness

1.) What items (if any) do you get embarrassed to purchase?

Lubricant.I don't buy condoms anymore,but those I always got for free anyway.Tampons and stuff don't really embarass me,but for some reason,lube just makes me go fire engine red.

2.) What sexual position do you and your partner/significant other use most?

Cowgirl(although I am still a fan of the good old missionary,no matter the bad wrap it gets)PS.don't you just LOVE those lucite heels?!

3.) Do you untie your shoes every time you take them off or do you slip them on and off?

Most of my shoes don't need to be untied or tied,but when I take off my sneakers,I never untie them,and then I have to untie them when I want to put them back on again.

4.) What is the last thing you broke by accident?

My favorite kitchen knife.I guess I don't always know my own strength.

5.) If you had to lose one of your body parts what would it be and why?

My left leg.I would rather have to use crutches,a wheel chair or false leg than to not be able to touch or pick up something.

6.) How do you feel about anal sex?

It might float someone else's boat,but I personally think it's a waste of time.

7.) If you could have the ability to solve problems quickly and easily or the ability to know without doubt every time a person told a lie, which ability would you want and why?

I'd choose to be able to solve problems quickly and easily,simply because it would make my life,and the lives of those I come into contact with,a lot easier.The lying thing is basically useless,because I wouldn't be able to do anything about them lying anyway.
