My big pal Martin and I went to see The Simpsons The Movie. It was good. We had quite a few laughs. I loved the part with Arnold Schwarzenegger! "I miss Danny DeVito!". Too fuckin' funny. I say go see!
I think I hear a mouse running around in my ceiling. My neighbour keeps doves on my roof so I guess that helps the mice out, eating dove seeds and stuff. Mice give me the creeps even though I had a really cool pet rat when I was little. And two hamsters. This angst is not very rational, I know!
I'm going to Paris next week! A friend of mine is a designer and I'm gonna help her out at a design fair. We're leaving on the 6th and will be back on the 12th. Yay!
I know it's gonna be a lot of hard work, but also seeing lots of beautiful things and meeting interesting people. I'm really looking forward to it. Plus, I'm gonna make money which will be spent in Vietnam/Thailand.
My last class (writing press releases) will start when I come back. The class will end by the beginning of November and if everything works out, I will be graduated. Finally!!
I dreamt I was living together with B for the first time and the house was a mess. Then John Mayer came in and we kissed. While we were kissing I could only think of trying to cover up the mess in our house 'cause I didn't want to take criticism from John about cleanliness.
I felt really weird and was all shook up when I woke up. But maybe that's a good thing since I was two-timing B in my dream. With John Mayer! I don't even fancy him when I'm awake.
The night after that I dreamt that I saw a mouse in my house. But it wasn't a normal grey one. He was bright white with brown and black spots. A little psychedelic cow-like mouse.
B and I went to the beach this afternoon, but unfortunately not in swimwear. The weather's too fucked for sunbathing. I really hate that I've spent so much money on two bathingsuits I've only worn one time each. I'm a retarded shopper. Like right now I'm trying to save some money for our vacation so I don't want to shop a lot and if I do it has to be something I really need or will use very often. Like cardigans, shoes or shirts. And what did I order this week? This dress:
It's not suitable for work nor is it good for this weather. I don't even find turtle necks that comfortable. Why am I such an irrational idiot? I also ordered a pair of boots, I hope they fit 'cause I really need new ones.
After the beach I went to my great grandma's for dinner. She was in Austria for three weeks, visiting her daughter. She's brought me a bag, I really love it! She pointed out to me (Like, four times! That old lady cracks me up!) that it has a zipper so it's pick-pocket-proof. She also told me I should take it with me when we go to Vietnam. I'll definitely do that. She really loves buying nice stuff for herself and other people. I guess my mom and I inherited the urge to shop from her. My grandma doesn't have this at all so I think it skipped a generation.
I am home alone tonight. Emily wanted to go out but I'm not in the mood and want to save money. So I guess I'm gonna lift some weights down stairs and B's coming to spend the night. We're in a good place right now, which I'm very grateful for.
Brussel was superb! We had great fun!! Lots of Belgium beers and seafood, Irish pubs, games of pool and more beers:-)) Emily was so enthusiastic, she wants to go on a real vacation that last like 7 days, next time. I don't know, I think 2 days were more than enough. I know, I'm being my difficult self once again but I'm perfectly satisfied if we just go on a few 2 day-trips a year instead of one longer one. I could however go with one of my male friends... boys are so much easier to get along with, so much less demanding.
I also found out that B's one of the very few people I can handle and actually like hanging out with for a longer period of time. And that's a good thing, since we booked our flight yesterday night. We're flying on the 28th of December to Bangkok. We'll stay there for four days and visit our friend and then head to Hanoi. We'll have the rest of January to travel from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh, our plane home will depart on the 28th of January. I'm sooo looking forward to it!!
Got home from work, had my hairdresser/friend come over and do my hair (it's a bit too short but I'm lucky my hair grows like weed), vacuumed (all those damn hairs!!!), took a shower, fixed myself some chow and now I'm dead tired. And it's only 9 pm. Twelve hours from now the girls are honking their horns and I am searching for my keys, making sure every electrical appliance is shut off and running out with a big ol' smile on my face. I love road trips!!
I had dinner at my mom's yesterday evening. We talked a lot, laughed a lot. One of our much discussed subjects is men. She's doesn't even know what we mean nowadays by the word "player" but my mom's got serious game. It's truly unbelievable. I hated it when I was younger because I was always more like my Dad but now we've come to accept eachother more. I'm really happy although I sometimes long for a mom who wears ugly-yet-wholesome-flower-patterned-grandma-like-dresses.
Cris, Emily and I went clubbing last tuesday. It was ok, but not really super because the music was too superficial (yep) and the crowd was a bit too preppy for our taste. Especially for my two single girlfriends who are a bit desperately seeking men. At one point they were both eyeing a guy, he was quite goodlooking but he danced like a gay man. Anyway, Cris put on her best seductive face, and kept telling me how he was flirting with her...but then, Emily started telling me he was actually looking at her and not at Cris! They kept this thing going and shouted it in my ear one after another. In the end Em couldn't take it any longer and had to ask him if he was gay. He was! We went to eat at an all night diner after that and I slept over at Cris. All in all we had a fun night.
I laughed at my girlfriends for being so competitive. I've never had that before with any girlfriend of mine. But maybe that's because I have a man for some time now and when I am single I'm too proud to be flirting with just any guy/gay.
We booked a hotel for next tuesday, we're going to Brussels, just the three of us. Eat, drink, shop, see and hopefully some dancing. Looking forward to it!!!
My facial skin is not so clear these days... I don't have zits but it's just not as smooth as I wish it was. Is it because I gave up smoking (once again) two weeks ago? Is it because I love and eat spicy food? Or is it hereditary? Hormones? My mom doesn't have fantastic skin either. But my bro and Dad do have clear nice skin. I eat lots of fruit and veggies. But I also indulge when I crave a hamburger.
When will this skin thing get better? And why is it that my skin is very soft and smooth on every other part of my body? I wish I could swap the silky skin on my ass for my facial! ;-)
I've been ill this whole week:-( I don't have anything nice to blog about, 'cause I've been inside all day everyday. It bores the shit outta me. Cris, Emily and I did plan a 2 day trip to Brussels, just the three of us. We'll be going 21st of August and spend a night there. We'll eat, drink, shop and hopefully dance. It's a tuesdaynight so most clubs are closed but I read that one gay club is open 7 days a week. So you'll probably find us there;-)
B has a photoshoot in Belgium too and he has to be there very early tomorrow morning so he decided to drive up there and sleep at a hotel. Normally he doesn't do that but he caught my germs too and he wants to make sure he has a good night's sleep so he'll not look like a zombie tomorrow.
My mom was so nice, she brought me lots of fruit and a kick ass dinner this evening. I hope y'all have a nice weekend!
I had a fantastic day at the beach this sunday with Marianne. We chatted the whole day and in the end her boyfriend picked us up with his fabulous boat and we went to another part of the beach. But in the evening Crissy called me and she was crying over her 3 month-old boyfriend who has treated her like crap. I told her to come meet me and I'd listen and console her. After talking for a while we saw her boyfriend walking past us...with a girl!!!
We saw with our own eyes that her boyfriend jumped into the ocean with this other girl and made out with her (all romantic and shit) in the sea. I advised Cris to throw his bag into the water, I figured it was the only way she could get a little bit of revenge. While she took his bag, his cellphone dropped out of it and a guy said "hey, you're losing a phone!" He thought it was our bag and our phone. So I took the phone and threw it in! It was the ultimate revenge. But when I found out that I'd lost my own wallet during that beautiful beach day I was less happy. Payback's a bitch, mofo!
I sure am glad that I'd spent all my money that day and I was sick of the wallet anyway. It was a black leather one. I think I'll go with a more uppity wallet this time around.
Have you ever had the feeling someone is holding out on something and you know something's up but that someone is never gonna tell you the truth so you'll never know for sure if your instincts are spot on?
It sucks, I tell ya!
On a lighter note: the party was so much fun! Lots of my friends were there, Emily (who's built like a giant) wanted to use some sort of chimney that went from the ground to the ceiling to do a pole dance. But with that amount of alcohol combined with that body her plan failed and the chimney broke loose!!! Everybody was looking at it like "How the hell did that happen??" and we're so lucky nobody got hurt! I laughed my ass off! After that lil' incident she accidentally slapped a girl across her face! It all sounds a bit harsh but it was veeeery fuckin' funny at the time;-) We danced the night away and it was all good. We had very nice weather today but I was just too tired and hung over that I stayed in, did laundry and mellowed out. I'm going to the beach again tomorrow, yay!
Finally!!! Nice weather:-) Bikini time! I went to the beach today with an old highschool friend of mine whose grandmother has just died. Her grandma lives in Aruba so she was there for the funeral and everything. A friend of her joined us, he's this dj dude with a fine sense of humour... we had lots of laughs! Dj's out here are veeeeeery popular and at the end of the day we were in the car and a girl called. He'd put her on speaker (unbeknownst to her) and I could just hear the girl wagging her tail like a puppy dog. She was all ready, willing and able!
No I'm gonna take a shower 'cause B is picking me up to go to a party in the park that will go on 'till 6 am. Have a nice weekend y'all!
This is me. 32-year old, mother of 1 and living in Europe. Going through life with one hell of a man, lots of love for my family and a pretty tight circle of mismatched friends. Very self-confident even though I don't know what the fuck I'm doing! (more)
