Fire blowing

Well today my best friend finally let the cat out of the bag that she's sleeping with my ex. Yes the one who managed to screw me out of everything I had worked so hard for. Yes, The same one who smashed my face in when I decided to leave him. I know I should be upset about this whole thing but for some reason all I can do is smile. Not because I wish bad on them and not because I had some sadistic fantasy about her going through what I did as punishment for betraying me. I am just impressed with the way I handled the situation. You see it all managed to come out in a fight that we were busy having... She starts telling me how happy he makes her and how noone has made her happier... Obviously waiting for some wave of lava fury to hit her as she is sure that the words she has just uttered have sliced into me like a hot blade through butter. I am not sure why exactly I did what I did next or how I found the strength to not care so much about others anymore. Perhaps its an attribute I gained over a long period of being an emotional wreck or from being able to stand on my own two feet and finally starting to live a story that I am proud of. I do not know but I somehow just laughed... The best friend obviously shocked at my casual attitude and needing to see that hurt the same hurt I had perhaps inflicted on her during our conflict, she as always tried to look perfectly poised. "So I hope you can be happy for us, and we can fix our friendship.", she uttered as if this was going to throw me off balance. My reply was as casual as the first had been saying that if he made her happy so be it as he sure as hell did not make me happy and that what she did in her love life was none of my concern. Of course I had to throw in that if I cared about him I would still be with him, perhap just to remind my opponent that my words could still be cold if I needed them. In all of my time being friends with Tazz she has never been completely speechless or backed down before but hey what do you know.

I still somehow don't know if our friendship would survive the awakwardness that this will bring but for once I am completely content in myself and I feel as if I am capable of standing on my own no matter what happens. It is the best I have felt in a long time.

My B-day

So it was my b-day this weekend and all seemed to go as could be expected. I got spoilt rotten, got drunk and fell down. So the usual for anyones b-day.

I did feel a little upset that the usual faces that are normally there on my b-day weren't. Most of them also didn't have a good excuse so like whateva. But some guy that I work with managed to pitch up somewhat acidentally with him being friends with one of my friends and what not. This was a little awakward considering me telling the bf that I cannot stand this guy one bit at work and then he manages to show up at my party so yeah. 

I remember Q ba and going to watch concussion girl at Woody's until the point when they decided a b-day drink was a good idea and proceeded to get me  2 Jagerbombs and a tequila in a row. After that it is all a blur. Besides arguing with the drummer about tdriving my car coz he doesn't have a license and insisting I was okay to drive, a debate at which I faied miserably. And then I remember the bf carring me inside and putting my pj's on. 

I can usually remember what I did but the bf says that this is normal as now I am not a teenager anymore and therefore don't know everything anymore. has finally gone through its last phase of upgrades touch wood and so far there are no problems with it. And I got a mention in the Springs addie for my charity work. So work is atleast going well. Lets see what the rest of the week has in store.

Nerdy or Miss Priss??

I am at the moment balancing between wheather I think I am too prissy or too nerdy. I believe that a good combination is always good. I have come to this conclusion that I have more pink on my desk than any sane person should [Yes, I do already know that I am not exactly normal but still]. Hence the above.

But on the other hand I spent the whole of the weekend playing Xbox- Guitar hero and End War ( I just think its really cool coz it is voice prompted) and I actually know what Warhammer is.

And then I go back to the fact that I know that Gianni Versace was assassinated by Andrew Cunnan. And I also know that the founder of Addidas and the founder of Puma are brothers and arch enemies. And I also own a ridiculous amount of playboy merchandise. Again Prissy…
And then I need to consider that I also know that cat pee glows under a black UV light [Don't ask]. And I know exactly what people mean when they talk about mount doom or Mordor or any other fantasy place in any cult fantasy movie.

But now that I think about it perhaps it is neither that is overpowering. The root of the problem seems to come from my intrest in almost completely useless information. [I say almost because every now and again it comes in handy like on quiz night].

Argh, who cares its Monday!

The crystal ball

Well I havn’t been able to post for a while but everything has just been like a whirl wind this past week. Well the long weekend was okay it was nice to have such a long relaxing break. The bf had to work Friday and Monday which sucks. So I spent the weekend doing washing and cleaning the house. Yes, on my own even when he was there. Well I suppose that’s not exactly fair he did clean the bathroom and helped with the kitchen.

We finally have some clarity on the whole engagement thingy. We are but we are making it all official like at the end of the year. If our relationship survives all these late nights and whot not. He worked late again last night or should I say this morning. He ill be going home at 8 am and as you all can see I am already at work so I havn’t seen him. Personally I have a hard time believing that he worked from 7am yesterday to 8am today but I guess that’s just because I grew up with a professional liar for a step father so I don’t believe what anyone says, I always make up my own mind. That coupled with the fact that I am just too damn observant for my own good makes me a force to be reckoned with. For example the bf trying to convince me he hasn’t seen the scumbag of a best friend:
BF: I missed you babe I was here all alone.
Soitaire: Hey baby were you here alone last night? [stupid question I have already seen the once full bottle of vodka standing on the table with 2 glasses but knowing that it will be far moe entertaining to let this little skit play out]
BF: Yup
Solitaire: So you decided to drown your sorrows?
BF: No, why?
Solitaire: The bottle of vodka
BF: Oh that yeah
Solitaire: So your absolutely sure that you didn’t see the scumbag lastnight?
BF: No, I havn’t seen him in ages.
Solitaire: WOW! Babe you really have a strong stomach to manage to get an entire bottle of vodka down in 2 glasses. And you have no hang over. I am really impressed.
BF: Okay so maybe the scumbag came over and we had a few drinks.

Damn I am good aren’t I. So yeah he better not be trying to pull any stunts because he doesn’t pay enough attention to detail to fool me. I hope I don’t have to swallow my words in the near future but I am pretty confident. To be honest I don’t really buy any of this working for 24hrs bullshit that he is trying to sell me. But I guess that’s just my “insecurities” creeping up again. I told him this morning that I don’t believe him and his answer was do you want to speak to my boss, I said no. In retrospect I think I should have. I probably wouldn’t have anyway but I could have just said yes to see his reaction and by that I would have known.

But he has been acting strange lately but I have found no evidence of a phantom woman so perhaps its just something else. Sadly I love him and it makes sense because if I didn’t we wouldn’t still be together and I am starting to worry that I am starting to loose my touch being blinded by my feelings and all, and I certainly don’t want to end up in the same trap that my mother fell into; loving a man that will ultimately destroy me. But perhaps I am just far too paranoid for my own good.
Only time will tell.

The crystal ball

So this weekend was a really busy one which sucks! I can’t wait to be able to just laze around all weekend. But I should find time this weekend coming as it is 4 days long! Whoop, whoop!!

Friday: We went to play cricket as all of you know. It was the best game ever even though we lost by 2 runs, but considering we played against one of the umpires there the ref was obviously slightly biased. Especially when the umpire we were playing against almost killed me by smacking the ball at like a trillon miles per hour directly towards my face. Now the rules are that a man can’t bat directly towards a female. I tried to catch the ball and did just as well as it managed to split my wrist open. It should heave been -6 points but it was apparently below the knee I think the ref is trying to tell me something… Because clearly my face looks like my ass! And besides after my oscar winning performance where I dropped like a sack of potatoes and rolled around like an injured Man United player I deserved those 6 points, anyway…

Saturday: Spent my whole morning at the bank which was an entire waste of time! I don’t understand how you need to be in debt to get finance. I mean seriously and if no1 will give me credit how the hell am I ment to get myself into debt?? I had to fight just to open a new account! I mean seriously the banks don’t even want to take my money. Could have just been the stupid chick that tried to help me. She did alright further into a ditch. The manager did however manage to get it through her thick skull that a rental agreement does serve as proof of residence. I mean hello! After that catastrophe I decided I needed some much needed TLC so I sought it in Mother Russia and got myself a bottle of vodka. Then we went and played guitar hero at the bf’s brothers house.
Me and Dave also had a huge fight because I told the consultant she was incompetent perhaps I could have relaxed a little but once you have been there for 3 weeks in a row, which was just a great waste of time! I think anyone would need to blow off a little steam. Besides I am not sorry if she doesn’t deem a rental agreement as proof of residence then she is incompetent! We did sort it out though.

Sunday: I went to Goldreef City with the rest of the household while the bf went to play airsoft. It was rather fun and it was a good use of R120.

This morning: The bf’s sister is convinced that Dave took R100 out of her wallet. Which makes no sense what so ever because we were at Goldreef the whole of Sunday and Dave was at airsoft. Not to mention we both still have money left. So she is screaming at Dave and asking who would have taken it then? I mean seriously she probably spent it herself and doesn’t remember. I mean she is mentally ill and all… No fucken kidding she really is. She has like 20 tablets she has to take to stop her from going going psyco and killing everyone in the house. As to answer the “who took it?” question: Well now this is a tough one but my sleuth skills really helped me out here… Well lets start with who is the only person who knows where she keeps her money? Her lazy bf. Okay and who’s the only person who doesn’t have an income? Umm… her bf. So who is the only person that needs money? Oh wait… her bf. Okay and who is the only person who can dig through her cupboards ect being undetected? Her bf! So therefore the thief must be her bf!! Well done agent Smith!! Otherwise the site is pretty quiet so help me out!! Got some thing to say?? Go to

The Bearded lady

My Advice to anyone: Never ever, ever, ever, try to help a friend or family member out when it comes to business. Coz it’ll turn around and bite u in the ass!! Yup you know that I am right. Oh and never argue with an idiot, coz they will drag you down to their level and then… Beat you by experience. Now I know you all think I am being mellow dramatic but the bf’s sister is possibly the dumbest blonde I have ever met in my life! No wait I am lying… That would be her best friend… Oh or maybe Paris Hilton… [Pause] Okay so she is the 3rd dumbest blonde I know.

Okay so basically the business is down so I decide that I will help them out by giving them some free advertising on the website. Which is by the way doing wonderfully… Facebook: watch this space! Anyway, the blind bat asks me to modify the advert 3 days in a row which I don’t have a problem with except for the uploading process being so monumentally and unnessisarily time consuming. So me being the caring, idiotic person that I am decides to just ask her to check the whole advert again because they are having down time on the site. Completely not my problem and I just run system adverts in its place. So it in fact benefits me for their advert to be inactive but hey. To this the bimbo of course freaks out as she doesn’t have the brain capacity to decifer the difference between advise and an insult. The conversation whent some thing like this.

BIMBO: Please can you change the numbers again. Oh and change the over 8000 applicants to 9000

SOLITAIRE: Okay but just check the advert to make sure your happy with it coz everytime I change it it takes up to 24hrs to fix.

BIMBO: Well can we change the applicant numbers once a month.

SOLITAIRE: [PLEASE NOTE: over 8000 is also over 9000, and over 9000 is also 10,000.] Yes but you have to understand that it is going to give you down time each time you make a change.

BIMBO: Solitaire, whats your problem? ...................Im the client and frankly your emails are cheeky about the fact I pointed out your mistake so your making me feel guilty because I’m correcting you. Just apologize and get on with it. I don’t give a shit if it takes you 2 weeks to fix it - just fix it. You fucked up with the number so have some cautious response about the responsibility in fixing it. If my boss saw your tone she wouldn’t be very impressed. If this is your tone then rather please remove our advert completely. I don’t think your bosses would appreciate your tone either towards your client. I don’t care how long it takes you just rectify it.

SOLITAIRE: [HUH??] I don’t mind changing it I am trying to give you advise. Here it is anyway.

BIMBO: Okay proceed.

[15 minutes pass]
BIMBO: You know what just cancel the advert.

SOLITAIRE: Dear Ms Scott

The advert is pulled off. The account is still there though as I need to wait until our lead programmer returns to close the account completely.

Sorry for the inconvenience.



I mean seriously what the fuck!!! I mean seriously, I’m doing her a favour and she whants to fuck me over!! Bitch! And then she still wants to move in with me and the bf when the lease is over coz she can’t afford to live on her own as her broke ass bf is too lazy to get a job!! Screw it she can stay in a flat above a roach infested bottle store that is secretly running a prostitution ring for all I care! Or perhaps if I can make a suggestion, a cave in Afghanistan might make a humble abode for the “happy” couple. They will have a place to stay, hell I’ll even pay for the rent!

Anyway I am sure we will work it out or kill each other trying…
