Goombay Dance Band - Christmas at Sea (Video)

This was my Dad's absolute favourite Christmas song... Carols weren't his thing, but this... he actually wore out the first tape he had with it one, and then got another two, just in case.
I was missing him SO, SO much today, and the only thing that cheered me up was listening to this.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Cool

Christmas at the sea is amazing! Went for a little stroll on the beach on Christmas Day... and we got totally drenched! The rain decided that it would be a good time to bucket down! So by the time we got back, we were soaked to the bone. hehe

More updates later, but until then: Merry Christmas! I hope your day has been blessed and joyous.

The view from our hotel room
(Lucky buggers, no?)

Just a quick stop in to say "I'm alive!" Currently sitting in our hotel room in Port Shepstone, looking at the grey skies over the sea. The weather has been fantastic so far, and, even though it's starting to rain a little, it's still warm and beautiful. We've even done the whole Vaalie tourist thing, and been on the beach in the rain! haha! Having a wonderful time, and will update when we're back in Joburg. Look forward to a bumper edition of More News from Nowhere. :)

Until then, Happy Holidays!!!

Friday Fangs

Friiiiiiiiiii-Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Yay! I didn’t think I would survive this week, but here we are! Alive and kicking! Yay!
It’s been a very trying week, with a LOT of challenges. But looking back, there’s been a lot that I’ve loved too:

·         I found this video on Yes and Yes earlier this week, and it made me grin, despite the crappy day I was having. VERY cool! Also: I want that hat! (Klismaus soon, okay?)
·         I have had a very successful few days of shopping, for a change. I bought some very cool new maxi dresses (all plain) which I can jazz up accordingly. I have rocked them all week, and loved it! I also bought a spunkly little striped skirt which I can’t wait to debut, because it makes me feel like a million bucks! Yay! Rocking my new dresses rocks.
·         My very good friend Amy is coming to visit me next week! She gets to us on Sunday! She’s up in JHB marking matric papers, so lots of hard work too, but it’s gonna be amazing to catch up with her! I haven’t seen her since my dad passed away last year, so there’s a lot to catch up on! Also, we might be going for tattoos while she’s here! Squee!
·         Woolies Twist of Lemon flavoured water (0 kj energy!) (Zippy lemony punch!) (Sheer awesome!!!!)
·         Yesterday, I got a 5am phone call from one of my bosses. I know you’re thinking “Hang on, why is that on the things I LOVE list??” Well, I quite like being awake early (if you’ve known me longer than two years, this will shock the hell out of you!) and it also meant I could get my ass out of bed and go and exercise. That made yesterday pretty damn awesome. I’ve been too exhausted to get out of bed early lately – I hate December – and that was the Universe’s way of getting me to do it. Subterfuge. Yay!
·         We FINALLY got around to tidying the spare room!
·         Reading this post made me beam! I bought some of those things! It’s awesome to spend money, knowing it’s going to going towards something as awesome as this! Yayayayay!!!!!
·         I bought a new top at Jay Jays on Wednesday. It has the face of one of my heroes on it:

Excuse me while I kiss the sky
·         I spent much of last night doing some crazy arting and tattoo designing. I have plans, and they’re massive! *rubs hands mischievously*
·         Sleeping soundly for the first time in weeks. The value of this is infinite. I didn’t even know that there had been a storm last night. I just slept and slept and slept.
·         Zombieland. We finally got round to watching this when it was on Movie Magic the other night. I now have a new favourite movie to spout quotes from. I have a new motto too: “What would Tallahassee do?” Ha! It was so cool that Mister Boo and I have been practicing our zombie lurching all over the place. I think I may have caused a back spasm, it’s that bad. Hehehe

·         Homage to my Hips:
these hips are big hips
they need space to
move around in.
they don’t fit into little
petty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don’t like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
these hips are magic hips.
i have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top!
