So here I sit... In the dark! Fecking power outages! After slaving away at work and then rushing off to do grocery shopping, we come home, pooped, to no power... Now let me tell you its NO fun packing groceries away in the dark... The chickens probably sitting in the cookie cupboard next to the pickled onions... only to be discovered 2 weeks later when we start investigating that awful dead possum like smell. Yes we have a cookie cupboard, dont you...? *weird look* And I'm MISSING EGOLI!!!! Missing a whole half an hour of car, make-up, shopping centre and 'Egoli Gas' (whoever the fecking hell they are) plugs! Boooooooooooooooooo!! Mind you.... if we had paid some attention to the program and gotten Egoli Gas (whatever the feck that is but apparently everyone living in Malboro Mansions uses it) we wouldn't be sitting here right now, bored out of our minds flicking boogas at eachother... ok not really, thats just gross... tsk!Â Mind you, you could miss 10 episodes and come straight back into it knowing exactly whats potting... someone is shtooping someone they shouldnt be... someones 2nd cousin twice removed has stolen someones baby and is drugging some other person up in their basement because she stole their dope... I tell ya, intrigue, danger and lotsa shtooping in the world of Egoli... What have I been doing with my life!
Eeeeeeeeeek and my battery is but a burp away from giving up the ghost!
Type fast... type fast... um um the pressure!
Ive come to the conclusion that manual labour is for the birds... I think Dale might agree with me on this. In the last week myself and Jan have weeded my garden... God kill me now, I have never been so stiff in all my life. I felt like Id been riding a FAT horse for 2 weeks straight! I have decided I like weeds... they look great. Also yesterday we tiled the braai. I say 'we' but it was more like, Dale and my dad, I say Dale and my dad but it was more like my Dad *smiles sweetly at Dale (hate it when he reads this over my shoulder when I am writing, he gives me filthy looks.... love you shnookums) man oh man... tiling is for the birds! Cut this corner... no thats too much glue, no thats too little... get under there and hold that tile until you cant feel your arms anymore... bleh bleh blehhhhhhhhh I would be happy to paint the damn cement next time... screw the tiles... I reckon we never tile another thing ever again... we can have a corrugated bathroom for all I care... no wait, I would like a nicely tiled house... Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!
So whats else has happened since I last wrote. I got new wheels!!! The new Suzuki Swift and I am loving it!! It's my first car with STUFF in :) *cartwheel* I spent the first half a day after I got it just playing with the electric Windows!!! Shhhzzzzzzzzzzzz *up* Shhhzhzhhzzzzzzz *down* Shhhzzzzzzzzzzzz *up* Shhhzhzhhzzzzzzz *down* not to mention the electric mirrors! (I just like saying 'electric') :) and the power steering hahaha I find it rather amusing taking Dale around a traffic circle 50 times... it confuses people though. I think thats why they keep flipping me the bird... You're just jealous you suckers.... *flips on air-con and sticks tongue out at everyone*
Hmmm Dales worms have woken up. He's started making a braai. We thumb our noses at you electricity... THAT and we have salad left overs from yesterdays braai so a braai is just the right thing to do... ;) and I dont have the heart to say that we should just hang on till the power comes on and we can heat our 'heat in microwave cause you're lazy bastards meals' that we bought at pick n' pay... cause I just remembered that our microwave is sitting in a squillion pieces... thats what happens when the door breaks with my potatoes inside! I unscrew you and pull yer innards out!! *nods*
Hmm, what else.
We buried a friend. A Very sad loss to us all. Aiden you were such an amazing person and Im sad to say that only after I sat at your funeral and watched your friends break down telling funny stories about you, And watched you playing with your son in the pool and teaching him how to swim did I wish with all my heart that I had gotten to know you a little better than I did. I wish Id sat down with you and had a serious conversation with you, or just learnt a little more because you had a lot to give. But thats a lesson I have learnt from you and I will take heed to pay more attention to everyone around me, stop and notice. You survived cancer to be taken away by an accident... that is something I dont think I'll ever beable to wrap my head around. We will all miss you very much.
Ok, so its still dark. No power. Grumph! I refuse to pay my taxes! Rat bastards... not any one in particular... just the dude who's taking so long to switch it back on again.Â Just take a wrench and smack it on the big metal thing for Gosh sake (Heck is a place where people who dont believe in Gosh go to :P)! How hard can it beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! *whale sob* Gawd and Im gonna miss Army Wivessssssssssssssssssssssss!!! Now Im not gonna know who's shtooping who in the army....
20 minutes later....
And wouldnt you know it! The power comes on as soon as Dale put the meat on... :)
