My romantic Weekend getaway

Somehow the bf’s sis managed to convince me that it “would be nice” if we meaning me, the bf and the rest of the squatters go on holiday together. I like to think I agreed because I wanted to build the relationships within our humble abode, but I realize now that the more likely reason was that I am just phenomenally stupid. Especially considering the sponger (the sister’s bf) would be joining us). For those of you who don’t know me and the referred to sponger are the best of friends… Okay I am lying but as mentioned before he has no job or any drive to ever find one for that matter.

Mere minutes after we arrived at the fabulous Mamagalie lodge , I began to get an inkling of precisely how tooth-grindingly long the week would be. We had just finished unpacking my vastly overloaded bakkie when the sponge started complaining about everything imaginable. He is of course a professional complainer which is probably part of the reason that he can’t find a job to save his pathetic little life.

Now me and the sponge can take each other in small doses but actually having to spend an entire weekend communicating is something that was just not gonna happen. Especially with the bf around who possibly resents the little rat more than I do. And of course the complaints seem never ending when one is trying to relax.

However all parties concerned I think it turned out to be a fairly good holiday what with the blunders and all. I am assuming that you want to read about the memorable events on the trip and I promise not to complain to much in this part however if you prefer the complaining bitch skip to the end of the blog.

Firstly the accommodation was absolutely beautiful and the bedrooms stunning. Bedrooms that were apparently off bounds this weekend as we had zip, zero, nada, nil, privacy what-so-ever… Even with the romantic for postar red satin bed… We did however take advantage of it even with all the interruptions. Every single time for those of you who really want to know. The sister and the bf were apparently too scared to mess up the beautiful bedding… You’re in the middle of the mountains in a luxurious four star log cabin for Christ’s sake who cares about the bedding! But maybe I am just a non-caring bitch.

Anyway we did manage to scare the shit out of the sponge with a cleverly devised prank that left him screaming like a banshee whilst hopping from foot to foot. The sight was absolutely hilarious and I am deeply disappointed that I did not have the camera in place to film the event. In a nutshell the bf hid under a bed that was in front of their door he scratched on the door whilst I kept them occupied thinking that he (the bf) was with me. When the sister sent her whimpering (no kidding) bf to check what was going on my bf grabbed his leg which produced the above mentioned leprechaun effect.

Then there was the 3 hour hike into nowhere. We were trying to go to the lodges advertised rock pools but to get there is supposedly an hours hike but after being lost in the wilderness for about 2 hours and following the correct trail for an hour, through a maze of dangerous arachnids and the like, we decided to head back to the lodge. As a side note the trip back took us about 30 min, probably as we just wanted to get away from the gigantic spiders.

Once back at the lodge someone had the brilliant idea of horse riding, unfortunately I believe it was me. So we phoned the owner of the lodge, who said it was about 7kms away. Now I donno what he was smoking but I would chew my own arm off if that was 7kms it took us an hours drive before we pulled into a farm which looked like something out of the hills have eyes. We then waited an hour before the ranch hand arrived to take us on a trail.

Now this was an experience that I am never going to forget. We all mounted the horses and it was time to hit the trail. Being somewhat nervous I decided to stay at the back of the group. Bad idea. The sisters bf had no clue how to ride a horse. After about 20min of tip toeing behind him I’d had enough and overtook… Now he is absolutely terrified of chickens. I know you’re laughing… But we all have our phobia’s… Anyway the trail we were following lead us straight through a pack of them… And me being the generous person I am slowed down so the sisters bf could keep up… LOL! In other words I nearly came to a standstill to watch the sponge squirm and shriek for a while longer amongst the chickens. I know I am evil but I am female so it is genetically programmed into me.

I caught up to the rest of the group and after about 15 min was asked to check where he was. Now proof that horses can be evil too. The sponge’s horse had decided to walk about 15m off the trail into the middle of a chicken pen whilst walking the above said sponge into every tree he could possibly find. Now for proof that I am not too evil I went to go fetch the evil horse and drag him out of the pen.

Anyway all in all it was actually a great holiday. And the drive back was somewhat pleasurable with a stop in Harties. To stretch the legs and refill our stomach’s we made it back home unscathed.

Wacky Wedensday

Well things are starting to look up and I can't wait for our upcoming holiday!! I have finally managed to secure a poition on the cricket team... The bf seems happy coz he knows I can actually catch a ball and I can run faster than the other 80kg something girls so it is looking good.

We aree going to Magaliesburg on Friday for a holiday. And I can't wait!! South Africa is not living up to its reputation o being sunny and hot lately as I am freezing my behind off!! But it is generally going well... I am starting car hunting and it should be good fun I can't wait to actually own something of my own...

Anyway I will keep you posted

So action cricket on Friday was okay... Probably better than usua coz I just got trashed... And then decided to play action soccer with Tash... 30min 1 on1 may seem like a good idea when u've had a bit much to drink but believe me I have been in agony ever since and my calves are still throbbing... Sat was as boring as ever and if I ever need to play another 1st person shooter game it will be too soon!

Yesterday was filled with the usual politics with Al arguing from the moment we got home without us saying a word. But atleast the majority of the day with my mom was not bad.

3 days till holiday I can't wait.

Friday the 13th

Don't you just love how there's this stigma around Friday the 13th. The one that inevitably causes you to have a bad day no matter how much u don't believe in Friday the 13th. Yeah well shit happens right. So as you guys can imagine my day has been absolutely brilliant... Not. So I guess you want to know what happened as it is always great to hear how some1 else is having a worse day...

Well it started yesterday when the bf had to bring up how stupid it was that I am upset about this whole cricket thing... Which every1 at first agreed with him which is to be expected when his version of the story is Mags is pissed at me for playing cricket. When the real version of the story is Mags is pissed at me for playing couples cricket with some blonde slut! Once I explained that the tables soon turned well his sister and his dad agree with me the sisters bf doesn't but he doesn't pay rent so he is not entiteled to an opinion. So we have been ignoring each other since and now are eventually trying to sort it out well atleast I am.  But he is convinced that it isn't a problem so it isn't a problem.  Well I have decided to pretend that every person on the team has a Y chromosone and that noone with a Y chromosone has their gf on the team... Somehow I think this is gonna be more difficult than I allow credit for.

Then of course we have the usual nagging clients which seem to be more bitchy than usual today. For example they send me an A5 advert and want everything on the advert on an animated gif that is industry standard size of 140x140 pixels and is no more than 11Kb... I resized the original advert to 140x140 pixels and was very tempted to send it for approval but then I remembered that I actually do need my job and it is probably not a good idea... I would love to tho...

It is almost 11 and I am already in need of a staunch drink to calm my nerves... But atleast its Friday! I will let you know how the rest of the weekend pans out!

So today didn't turn out too badly the boss is at head office today and has promised to get an answer on when the next build to our website will be finished. Hopefully soon cause I donno how long the i donno question is going to work on the reps who are kinda starting to foam at the mouth and I am starting to worry about being ripped limb from limb. Plus I'm ment to be the so called "webmaster" so I now look like a complete idiot... and if the Reps get hold of me I will be an incomplete idiot as some parts of me will be missing.

Apparently my Facebook account has also started believing I am incapable of making decisions as it is now an Afrikaans Facebook... Last time I checked it was english.

Then there is of course the developing office sopie... In a nutshell a guy got a warning for sexual harrassment of another guy. Which the one who apparently lodged the complaint denies anyway and now they hate each other. I am just gonna stay right here in my corner and ignore it. The whole office has jumped on the band wagon and for some reason I'm thinking its a bad idea to get involved.

Tomorrow is friday the 13th again and after how last months Friday the 13th turned out I'm not sure I wanna relive another one so soon. And tomorrow I get to sit through another 2 hours of "couples" action cricket. I am so not amped...

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

So last night I had to sit through another 2 boring hours of watching the bf play couples action cricket. Yup u guessed it I am not in the team which wouldn't be so bad if the girls playing were better than me but they are like tice my size and 3 times as unfit... I smoke a pack a day so I am not like the fittest person on the planet but I can run 5 steps without dying. Oh and I don't jump and scream when a ball comes within veiw. The next game is on friday so Tazz has agreed to come with for moral support so in other words we are going to get pissed at the bar and make jokes about the dykes around there...

I did however get some consollation when their team lost by 130 runs... LOL!!! But hey what am I ment to do be happy about the situation. I mean Tazz wouldn't even support him if she was dating him. But I am not her I will just use it as ammo the next time I want something. We had drinks afterwards which was kinda cool...

Well I will let you know how it all turns out....

The party with teeth

Okay so the 21st wasn't too bad but u know when u meet those people who you just get along with too well... Yeah well u end up coming home at 6:30 in the morning and wish u never spent that much cash but not a train smash all is good.

The weekend did convince me and the bf of one thing tho, we are not nerdy enough... Weird I know but we have decided to do more geeky stuff on the weekend to avoid the hangover that goes with the whole jock seen we seem to be dragged into more and more. So we have an XBox LAN this weekend... Okay its not much but it is a start.

Oh and we have also come to the conclusion that it is best that I cook from now on as whatever it was that the bf's twin cooked lastnight could pass as a contact adhesive... No friggen kidding that stuff could hold the Eiffel Tower together I swear.

The WOMF blog is growing at a slow pace at the moment well seeing as it is still in the early adoptive phase it makes sense... But it is now kinda like watching the grass grow blade by blade. And the free advertising on it is harder to give away than it is to sell advertising. People in SA always think that there's a cache.

Anyway I have been spending the last 2 days helping out typing vacancies for the paper so I can now officially say that I have done my bit for the unemployment problem. I typed up like 200 vacancies in the past 2 days, so the next time one of those beggars try tell me their "There is no work" sob story I don't have to feel guilty because they are lying....

So thats about the rundown of my weekend will keep u posted

The wheel turns

Today has been an awesome friday! Firstly no moderation problems besides a few ignorant people which is always good for a laugh, for example Blogger1: "What is everyone's thoughts on pirated movies?"  response by blogger 2: " I didn't really like pirates of the carribean but I'm always up for something new." Yup I have the best job in the world because just as I feel like the day is never gonna end someone comes up with a comment like this and u can't help but laugh.

The second reason why today was good is as my boss is not here I managed to have a proper conversation with Tazz my best friend and catch up on various usual things like Binx broke up with her boyfriend, my ex's financials are going down the drain (Yeah! Considering the @ss hit me about and I left OUR house with nothing other than my clothes, I am allowed to be happy about his slow demise into the abyss.) And the usual other stuff like a mutual friend finding out that he isn't the father of his fiance's child as she is actually an escourt... No fucking kidding I don't believe it my self but whatever. 

Anyway tonight I am meeting one of my good friends Koi for a drink at his chicks 21st. I have never met her so I suppose I'd be kinda gate crashing but he doesn't know anyone there so I agreed to risk it. Anyway I will let you know how that goes on monday. 

The boyfriend is at the moment giving me no hassels which is suprising but again I am not complaining. I think it might have some thing to do with the fact that le' friend is about to arrested for stealing his sisters TV set and a few other valuble items. So we are glad that this friend is MIA for the moment. 

So it is blissful and with approximately 4 hours of work left Life is good
