Twenty-two Years Of Awesome

9 Mar

birthday girl

Long ago in a land far far away, there lived a family of six; a mother, a father and their 4 daughters. It was a time before Facebook and twitter and mom jeans and plaid were all the rage.

A prophesy from a highly qualified fortune teller known as a doctor said “in less than a year, a time will come when your family of six will become a family of seven and you will experience the greatest joy imaginable…by imaginable it means that you have probably experienced it four times already but you get my point.” with that the fortune teller disappeared and the family was left to ponder on what had just been said.

Months later the family was excited and probably on cloud nine because the day was finally upon them when they would be blessed with a little angel baby. March 9th 199x had finally arrived and on that fateful day, they put on their favorite outfits (Which in the 90s was probably a fashion disaster and looking at the pictures now, one might die of laughter and shock at the sight of what people wore). The whole land was in awe and many people traveled from lands so far away that it took them literally weeks to reach their destination. I suppose they guessed or calculated the exact moment the angelic princess would arrive, who knows. Strange things used to happen back then I imagine.

The ruler of the land suggested they make March 9th a public holiday but the village folk said it would make the princess get even more big headed than she already was, like seriously the girl had a ginormous head. So the public holiday idea was flushed down the toilet. Literally. 

The girl was so beautiful and adorable,even though her head looked like a loaf of bread, that her life was no longer safe. Her innocence was believed to heal all manner of  sadness and depression. Just looking upon her almost oval face, your day would suddenly seem brighter and you could not suppress the smile hat would eventually appear on your face. Weird creatures and witches wanted to kidnap her and use her beauty for their own evil plans so the family left the land, changed their last name to something so not believable and the little girl grew up away from all the danger.

Okay so maybe that is not exactly what happened 22 years ago today but its kind of, sort of maybe a bit something like that. Okay to tell you the truth I never imagined I would ever reach this point, I have to say I do feel really old. Like I should be married with my own house and everything… but no way am I giving up the free food and warm blankets that I enjoying since I live with my parents. I do not know why people move out of their parents houses, this is like the sweetest deal ever. 😀 hahahahaha

I have to confess that though it is a happy birthday and all, with the cake and presents and all those Facebook posts and texts, I kind of miss The boyfriend, or not boyfriend depending on who you ask really (I do not know why i just shared that.) . Worst case scenario, the day eventually ends and I find out he actually forgot its even my birthday, that will suck.

I think I have enough birthday cake to feed like 30 people, thanks to my mom so if anyone wants a piece I can email you some.

  3. I am an awesome cook, well at least its what people say… no one has died from food poisoning yet.

  5. I have this amazing smile that people go mad and even blind just setting their eyes on it. I once took part in a beauty contest, with a bathing suit and everything, I didn’t win so obviously I am ugly or something.

Day 2…Yummy!! Go out on a lunch date and actually enjoy myself :)

6 Mar

Day 2 of my five day countdown and for today i decided to do something I dont usually do- go outdoors. Yes and unlike my usual being forced to go out and sulking the whole time, today i was actuall happy about it and even enjoyed myself.

It didnt start out so great though…It started raining and the lunch thing almost didnt happen. just ended up sleeping because we didnt have power at home (no electricity).  Then after I dont even knoe how long my sister woke me up..telling me that the rains had stopped and we can go out now. (just when the sleep was getting good 🙂 )

After reaching the eating plce we were told that there was no more chicken…what the hell?

well decided to go to a different place but Oh my god it was not appealing, the place sucked.

I was begining to think this was not meant to happen…because the other nice place I had in mind, we were told that they had run out of chips..and that was the only thing I was in the mood for.

there was  no way I was just going to go home without having my chicken and chips..so they

suggested we wait and that they would make us two quick plates. 🙂

I love chips (my guilty passion)

So i guess day two was a success because i enjoyed myself. 🙂

Home Alone Confessions

1 Mar

No this has nothing to do with that movie “Home Alone”.

Every once in a while we find ourselves home alone and then we are overwhelmed by this feeling of absolute power…like you are a greek god or something. So happy like you can do anything now, without a care in the world. no parents siblings and no children..whoo

So here Iam home alone, a list of things to do to choose from and the one thought that was on my mind was “How do I make a blog entry from this?’ then It hit me…like a slap on the face *smack*

The top five things to do when you are home alone and you are certain that no one is coming back soon to find you doing them”  yeah not very catchy i know, but you get the point.

1.   Walk around in nothing but your underwear and socks

Okay this is a must do for everyone, it is that one slice of heaven i really enjoy. So as soon as they say bye, lock the door (just in case they come back unexpectedly) and after 30 minutes when you are  sure they are not coming back..Boom. off comes the clothes and on comes the underwear parade. but if you are really daring and want to feel even more “liberated”, why not go butt naked. But make sure your windows are closed, we dont want any trouble.


2.   Have a “sock skating” competition by yourself

My mom always used to stop me from putting on my socks and sliding around in the house..especially in the passage way. something about it being dangerous or something. so now whenever i am home alone, that is the second thing i do. I call it sock skating and since our passage way is really long it just adds a cherry to the cake.


3.  Play really loud music and pretend you are in a rock band

if you dont love bon jovi now would be a good time to start. start playing “its my life” or “have a nice day” really loud and try to sing louder than they do. shout your lungs out and play a fake guitar. okay fine if you are not rock fan..blast the roof with LMFAO’s “party rock anthem” and shuffle like there is no tomorrow.


4.  Eat like a pig and feel no shame about it

yes i said it…now unless the food in your house is counted, no one will know you ate up a storm. I suggest having your cereal, yoghurt, icecream,maple cyrup, fruit, chocolate sauce and custard all in  one gigantic bowl… 🙂


5.  Ignore Every knock at the door

the one thing that will ruin your temporally heaven are people constantly knocking and asking to see people who are not around. whoever it is, just pretend you are not home, It doesnt matter if they are jehovas witnesses, the electricity bill people, just ignore it…though the loud music will kinda give you away 😀

but that is just me, some people will have house parties, sex orgies, a fake marriage ceremony, make a porno, invite the hobos over and even turn the house into a studio. But i am not that ambitious and i am a coward so i will stick to my top five 😀
