I wish I may,I wish I might,I wish I could look like this for at least one night

I know I should love myself,who I am,and what I look like.But seriously,do you guys know what kind of awesome shit I could get up to if I looked like this?!

And that's only in plain jeans and cardigan (which is way comfy).So yeah,I wouldn't mind being turned into Miss Fox for a few nights.I won't be greedy,and ask to be turned for forever.Just a few nights,or months.Whatever.

PS.I just want her looks.My personality rocks (at least that's what I think ;)

Be still my untamed heart

Last night,one of my all time favorite movies was on.

Untamed Heart

I was probably about 12 when I saw the movie for the first time,and it forever inbedded in me the love of mysterious,silent,somewhat damaged guys.You know,women like to fix stuff/people.Adam (Christian's character) is the perfect guy,and will always be,in my eyes at least.If you haven't seen this movie,do yourself a favor,and see it.

Christian Slater was my ultimate teen idol,and I druelled over him the same way teen girls are now freaking over Robert Pattinson

He was the star of 3 of my favorite movies of all time:

Gleaming the Cube
True Romance (starring Brad Pitt,in what I consider to be one of his best roles - as a perma-stoned roommate.As well as Michael Rappaport,who I love in 'War at Home') I loved this man.

I'm sorry

You are probably tired as hell of my family pictures,so I apologise beforehand,but I just found these old pictures of my eldest nephew,and well,his cute little face just cheers me up to no end,so please indulge me.

These were taken when he was about 2-3 years old.The blondest (is that a word?),naughtiest little boy I know,but such a little cuddler and charmer as well.He is only 5 now,but will already compliment the ladies on how good they smell,how pretty they look or how generally awesome they are.

How the hell they got him to sit still on that horse,I will never know
Ready for some snowball throwing action

Spending the day in the vineyards,eating lots,and lots of grapes,you end up dirty like this

I like...


Especially if you have a house by the sea,beautiful mountains,or basically anywhere with a good view,I think it is a crime to not have big windows.I've seen plenty of houses in the most amazing spots,but with the tiniest little windows,that make them look like mental health hospitals or something.The whole point of a house in a nice place,is to be able to enjoy the view.That's where these babies come in:

I mean,really,who wouldn't want a place with windows (and views) like this?

Wednesday Blues

My week actually started out quite well.No dreading the week ahead,like I would normally do.But this morning I woke up in a funk,and when I'm in a funk,I get mad at the world.I hate being like this,but just like I hate it,I also know that it won't last forever and in a few days I'll be feeling great again.I guess I'll just have to spend this weekend on the couch watching movies again.Although,I have to admit,I'm more in the mood to party it up somewhere,but somewhere where I don't have to think of any responsibilities or where I don't have to take care of anyone,because when we all party,I'm usually the one who has to stay sober to take care of everyone else.It sucks.I want to have a wild time for a change.But I guess I have to rest myself out for next weekend,and the bachelorette party/kitchen tea.Hopefully I won't have to worry about the food,and everyone getting along,and just enjoy myself.

Well,one can hope,right?!

Wednesday Weirdness

1.) How easily are you insulted?

I hate to admit it,but I am very easily insulted.I am a very sensitive type of person,in that I don't take any insults very well.Not so much when they come from strangers,but when they come from people I know,insults cut me like a knife.

2.) How often do you perform oral sex on your SO?

Basically every time we have sex.

3.) What brand of shoes do you find to be most comfortable?

I don't have a specific brand,but rather a specific type of shoe,and that is slippers.Sure,you can only wear them inbetween the four walls of your own home,but they are still the most comfortable shoes to wear.I refuse to wear high heels.I've seen what wearing high heels did to my aunts' feet,and no thanks,I want to be able to walk when I'm 50.

4.) What are 3 to 5 items you NEVER leave the house without?

My apartment keys - I'm always home before my boyfriend,so if I forget my apartment keys,I have to wait outside until he comes back.
A specialised hand cream - I have very sensitive skin on my hands,so I never leave the house without this cream,it works wonders.

Hair grips - I hate having hair in my face,so I always have hair grips with me to put my hair up,and into different styles,whether my hair is long,or shortish.

5.) Who did you look up to as you were growing up? Who do you look up to now?

I've always looked up to my aunt and my parents.They are all very strong people,who are unapologetic about their opinions and lifestyles.
(I had to put this pic of her up - her expression is priceless.She is doing an incredible immitation of a college girl.Booze and ciggie in hand,tight sports shirt and very irritated expression.Like I said.Priceless)

Also,my best friend,who is just one of a kind.I can't even explain it.

6.) If you've ever been at a strip club of any type, what was one of your most memorable moments?

I've never been,but would love to visit one.But where women strip,not men.Even though I'm as straight as they come,stripping men just make me uncomfortable,whereas when women do it,it actually looks like a performance.

7.) Should prostituation be legal? Why or why not?

Yes,I think it should.That way,there would be a lot more control over the industry,and hopefully less crime associated with it.Prostitution will always be,so it might as well be legal and regulated.

I stole this meme off of a blog,somewhere in the blogosphere.Because I'm officially bored shitless,and need something to occupy my mind.Enjoy!

Make a list of things you can see without getting up: I'm in the office,so I can see my computer,my work phone,some hand cream I keep for when my hands get dry,all the paperwork I still have to file,and a small banana.

What were you like when you were five? Short,very pale,with curly red hair.I was a daddy's girl and went everywhere with my dad.Other than exploring the town and surrounds with my dad,I spent some time watching my tv shows and 'reading'.I was a very good little girl.

What are you wearing now? Black pants,black jersey and black shoes.And a very bright red and pink knitted scarf.I like to keep it simple.

What color is your bedroom? The walls are a dark cream color,but it's a bit blotchy,so it doesn't look all that awesome.The bedding is brown,orange,yellow,cream and black.So it looks very autumny.

What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading? Twilight,by Stephenie Meyer - to see what the hype was about.

Do you nap a lot? No,not anymore.It feels like I'm wasting valuable time if I nap during the day,although when I was in school I used to nap over weekends all the time.

Who was the last person you hugged? Maya the cat

What’s your current fandom/obsession/addiction? Reading all your blogs,obsessing over my cats' eating habits and addicted to peanut butter.

What was the last thing you ate today? Oatmeal with banana and peanut butter.

If you could have been in any movie, which one would it be and why? Pretty Woman,because it's the perfect Cinderella story,and Richard Gere was still super hot back then.

What websites do you always visit when you go online? Gmail, Blogger, Twitter, Evilbeet Gossip, X17 Online, Facebook.

What was the last thing you bought? A small present for my moms' birthday today.

What are you listening to right now? A radio station in the distance,and the sound of the telephones ringing in the adjacent offices.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? I'd like to read minds.That way you can help people without having to figure out what they want by asking lots of questions.

What is your favorite weather, and why? I prefer autumn and secondly winter,because I love cold,rainy weather.

What time do you usually get up? I get up 06:30am,and start work at 07:30am.I don't take very long in the morning at all.

What is your most challenging goal right now? Organising my sisters' kitchen tea/bachelorette party.

What was the last thing you said aloud? He's not available right now,can I take a message? - when I answered the phone.

Name one thing you just can’t resist no matter how bad it is for you: Pizza with lots and lots of cheese.

Pretty in pink

Every time my niece wears pink,I have to laugh,because when my sister was pregnant with her,she was adamant that if she had a daughter,the little baby would NOT be wearing pink.Ever.

What was the color of the very first outfit she wore in her life,on the day she was born?

You guessed it.Pink.

Ever since then,she's worn an abundance of pink no matter what the season or what the occasion.She adores the color.And sometimes I wonder if she was in her mom's womb and heard what her mom said and just thought to herself "Huh,she wants to tell me what I can or cannot wear?I'll show her,I'm gona wear whatever this 'pink' is,as much as I possibly can.That'll teach her a lesson."

My niece has been like a teenager since she was about 2 years old,with moodswings to rival any hormonal teen girls' and I foresee a lot of trouble for my sister in about 4 years' time.I,of course,will be there to observe the insanity.Can't wait!

PS.I hope you noticed that she color co-ordinated her bubblegum with her outfit.

PPS.What you can't see in the picture is that her pants are also pink.Just a bit more intense shade of pink than her shirt.If that is even humanly possible.

Jack the Signalman

Just goes to show - they are much more like us than we realise.

In the South African town of Uitenhage lived a man named James Wide. Known to locals as "Jumper Wide." Jumper earned the moniker due to his love of jumping from one railcar to another. A neat trick. Well, it was until Jumper lost his footing, missed a jump and fell in between two cars. Jumper lost his legs. Nearly his life. And who was there to pick up the slack? Jack. That's who.

Let's back up a bit. How did Jumper meet Jack? By chance some would say. By divine intervention I say. Jumper had made a little trolley to scoot around on like Eddie Murphy in Trading Places. While visiting the local market, Jumper saw an ox wagon being driven by a freaking baboon. Jack at the helm. Capably steering the yoked beasts through the busy market traffic. Whip in hand. (I may be making the whip bit up.) Jumper went over to inquire about the obviously talented monkey. Jack's owner felt compassion towards the crippled man and gave him the baboon to become a helper. A partnership was born. It was like the meeting of Siegfried and Roy. Except less gay and nobody got eaten by a tiger. Hmm, may need to rethink that analogy. It was like the meeting of Abbott and Costello. There, that's better.

Jumper began taking Jack to work with him at the train yard. There Jack helped out wherever he could. At the end of a long day, Jack was rewarded with a stiff shot of brandy. If the master didn't deliver the booze, the following day there was a very uncooperative monkey at the Uitenhage Train Station.

After some time, and I swear I am not making this up, it is said that Jack learned to change the signals at the train yard. He responded to the horn blasts from the engineers and changed the signals accordingly. Locals swear that Jack never made an error. In fact, Cape Town train officials, after hearing of the monkey bidness up the road, came to investigate. Skeptical, they agreed to test Jack's competence and the little guy passed with flying colors. After he aced the signal exam, Jack was officially given a government salary (bananas?) and was issued an employee number. Really.

There are tributes to Jack the Signalman, as he was known, at the Albany Museum in Grahamstown (they have Jack's skull) and the Uitenhage Railway Station.

Love and Hisses.

The big kitty is the foster moms' own cat,Miz Poo,and the little one is one of her foster kitties,Beulah.How can you resist those faces?!

I found this totally adorable blog about a cat foster mommy,and because I think people who have the heart to foster kittens are so incredible,I wanted you all to maybe go check her out.There is so much sweetness over on her blog,it makes my teeth ache.

Also,go here to check out more of her pictures.

House plants

Ever since I moved into my apartment,I've had an obsession with houseplants.Unfortunately my place is really small,so there isn't much space to put them.I have one potplant on either side of the TV and one on top of our tiny fridge.My aunt gave me a bunch of little potplants,which I keep right outside the front door.But in all honesty,I want a bagillion more potplants in my apartment.I just really like the look of them because they make any room look prettier,and they are good for the environment as well.

Unfortunately,I'm also not a very good 'gardener',and tend to unintentionally kill my plants by giving them too much water.Hopefully the bunch I have now will persevere and make the cut.

How do you feel about plants in the house,or do you prefer them outside?

My weekend

Friday ended the way most of my Fridays end - watching a movie.I didn't really feel like making dinner,since I had lunch at my Mom's and she made the most amazing pizza pie.So incredible!I mean,I ate lunch at 1pm,and by 8pm I was still full to the brim.Which is a very weird occurence for me.And even though I felt like going out for a drink on Friday,I ended up being too lazy and was in bed by 10pm.

On Saturday,I woke up and made myself a bigass bowl of oatmeal with toast.Yummy!I love eating my oats like that.Probably not very healthy,but still better than a bacon and egg breakfast.Since my washing machine takes about a million years to finish a cycle,I spent most of the day just doing laundry and lying on the couch.By 6pm Saturday,I realised that I had basically not done anything worth mentioning,except the laundry and the dishes.How freaking embaressing.Well,JC decided even though it was very cloudy outside,he was in the mood for a braai,with just the two of us.Just as the fire was getting on,raindrops started falling.Luckily only about 10 drops fell,and we ended up with very nicely bbq'ed chicken in pita's.Yum.We watched another movie and I was in bed by 11pm,since we had decided to go to church on Sunday morning.

Sunday morning,I get up at 8 to get ready for church,but JC decides he isn't going anymore and just keeps on sleeping.I was not happy,to say the least.So I went on my own and enjoyed the service very much.We have the best looking preacher,who talks in this very smooth,calming manner.And he talks in a way that everyone can understand,which is always a good thing in my book.After church,my sister,her fiancé,my niece and I went to the cemetary to put some flowers on my fathers' grave.It was such a beautiful day,and I really felt like I wanted to be close to him.Ugh,I miss him.

It was JC's moms' birthday yesterday,so at about 1pm we headed to their house for another braai.We chatted and had a really great time.They are all on diets (even though none of them really need to be...not like me :( but we all ate chips and dip like it was the last of it on earth,and when the main course came,we outdid ourselves again.JC's mom makes this potato dish that is just so freaking awesome,I would seriously hurt someone for a bowl of it.I would totally torture someone if it got me some of that potato goodness.I had some leftovers of it for breakfast this morning.Again,probably not very healthy,but who the hell cares?!It tastes so good!

After we had lunch and chatted a bit more,JC and I picked up my niece,who wanted to stay at our place last night.The evening ended,again,with a movie and last night I outdid myself in going to bed early,by being in bed by 9pm.I seriously couldn't keep my eyes open by that time.Like I told JC,being around people all day really tires me out.I don't know why,it just does.And also,I LOVE SLEEPING!

Well,that is about the extent of my very adventurous and exciting weekend.LOL.Hope you all had a good one,and that this Monday isn't too cruel.

Have a very fullfilling weekend!

Funny Friday

All I'm in the mood for today is funny stuff,good times and laughing.I don't want serious news,sad news or anything depressing in my life today.It seems like the weather is going to be really great (mild and sunny) this weekend,which makes it perfect for being outside without getting wet (either through rain or sweat).

So,here's some funny stuff to hopefully cheer up your Friday (or just make it better,depending on how your Friday is going)

I want them ALL!

That little guys' face says it all
You know,just in case you haven't done this before
So freaking true
Good to know
Family of Adam Lambert,maybe?

Freaky cats - always a good way to put me in a good mood

Hope you all have a great weekend!

I need your help!

Ok,I've written before about how I have to plan my sisters' bridal shower/kitchen tea,and the plans for that (the food,invitations,etc) are all on track and everything.

But the real problem is this: after the kitchen tea,us girls are having a makeshift bachelorette party,which I want to make lots of fun for my sister and our friends.The thing is,I have no idea what to do to make it fun.

We're going to be getting together at a friends' house,where us girls will be all alone (the guys are having their own bbq) and I was wondering if you guys had any good 'party' tricks up your sleeves for a laidback bachelorette party (no strippers,unfortunately,since we live in a REALLY small town,and getting one would cost a fortune).

So tell me...what would you guys enjoy doing at a bachelorette party?

Dear Diary

Ever since I was about 12 or 13,I've been obsessed with diaries.All kinds of diaries.Not necessarily the writing in them,but mostly the look of them.I love,love,love all kinds of stationery and can spend hours in the shops pouring over different types of books,pens and other accessories.It used to drive my sister mad whenever we went to the shops,because she couldn't care less about such things.

Well,even though I collected plenty of books to write in,I never actually got to the writing part.But recently,I've started really like scrapbooking collages/diaries.They look so creative and interesting,and seem to be an amazing way to express your likes/dislikes,etc.

The problem for me?I never feel I'm creative enough.I get all these ideas about how I'm going to make my own scrapbook diary,and paste all the things that inspire me and it's going to look totally awesome,and as soon as I want to start,all my creative juices just drain away and I'm completely useless.

Hopefully these can inspire me sufficiently.Don't you just love them?

Tell me - do you scrapbook,keep/kept a diary,or anything of that sort?Where do you get your inspiration from?

Love is...

This is EXACTLY how I would explain why certain people fall in love with certain people.It's the mutual weirdness

And also very,very patient

Isn't this just the absolute truth?The person you love the most in the world,who makes you the happiest,is also the one person who really knows how to break your heart (sometimes without even realising it)

This is just the freaking cutest thing!
