mum remembered melrose!

dam..i cant find pic of melrose cheese wedges :(
first day of campus today and mum remembered melrose! after like 7years of separation, melrose cheese and i have been reunited...it was a heavenly moment in Spar...the moment i made eye contact with the happiness in a circular container that had been missing all these years...and the words 'i have finally found my happiness' reverberated through the flat as i opened it ;) yeah yeah, sounds like utter bullshit to you, but i cant explain the effect melrose cheese has on me. Yesterdays paper said they're making a mehr coin for muslim brides that has the same value of a kruger rand and has the Ka'bah imprinted on it - sounds great, except my groom needs to have one made for me out of melrose cheese wedges ;) yeah baby!
when i was lil, my morning snack used to be a glass of milk, nuts and raisins...and melrose cheese wedges (which i aptly called 'cheesy with the moo') hehe..i think it was about the cow on the cover, Jo can relate ;)

dum da dum...i a bit bored already...sitting next to a very confused first year trying to figure out her courses. poor dingetjie. omg! 7de laan! how can Bart be dying?? thats so sad!! he so sweet and all sensitive and lovely :( dampened the last week of holiday...well, except till the granite came ;)
im in a mood. like, i wanna have a party on grass, like a braai or something - just outdoors! i saw these kids having a cute party in the park behind my house and it was soo cute! so i told mum : 'i wanna have a party too!'
mum: 'yeah, we could have family and friends braai for your birthday!'
Q: wow, that could be awesome! can we separate the mad friends and family and put em on the other side? ooh and then we could go to the beach etc...and wear all white breezy clothes, which can tie in with the lil white gazebo and so on...the weather would be perfect.
Mum: yeah..(absentmindedly) coz your birthday's usually in december...

i cant wait for Ramadaaaaan :) i just feel like this year's gonna be lovely. last year i had icecream for sehri alot and bugged mj on mxit. this year, im thinking...i'll still bug mj, but i should eat healthier things. if i sound over-excited, its coz i had to psych myself up for this day. and i get to see my friend Nikhat n the bus:Dshe's all sweet and cute and crazy - and doing masters in some hectic thing i cant pronounce...we have come up with a method of stalking i shall post later on.lol.
she's a ripper! love her to bits. she's totally unhypocritical (if thats a word) and smart and positive and funny. This is the semester of surrounding myself with positive vibes on campus ;)
think it'll work? i dunno. i magnet for nonsense sometimes. ok, me go now...
k...maybe now. k now i go.
i love this computer..the keys are all squishy and silent...
have lovely day!

a lil something...

An angel once asked, 'God, what surprises you most about mankind?'

He replied, 'They lose their health and make money and then, lose their money to restore their health. By thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present...such that, they live neither for the present nor for the future...They live as if they will never die...and they die as if they have never lived.'

guess who's back...

Guess who popped out of the box and straight back in to blogpshere!! ;)

Hehe, don’t ask. (Yes, that’s what I do alone at home, other than leaving myself messages on our answering machine. Don’t tell anyone)
This holiday totally and absolutely rocked! I can’t quite remember what happened between the 8th of June and July 18th, and how time flew so fast that its back to campus now – just when I started enjoying it…
Just finished writing a short story, inspired by two very different songs – Tere Bina from Guru and La Noche by Tiesto. It took me forever to write these 6 pages, searching for the perfect feeling that fit the music and the story, and that feeling at the last line made it all worth it. Ok – this is me babbling!

Anyway, this holiday made me smile…I made up with friends I thought I had lost, went bowling, cooked up a storm, shopped till my feet hurt, and worked as a PRO. We had to present a proposal to the SAFA executive board. I was sooo nervous, but they loved it and it just made things that I want to do in life seem within reach. There were memorable conversations…like:

Q (on Mxit): how the hell did we end up friends?
MJ: I don’t know. But I had to put up with loads of your shit in the beginning. But I knew I’d find something in you- and one day, I’ll find it.
Q: before, I’d have deleted you right now! Big hug.

It’s weird. Some of the rocking friendships I have now have started on really rocky ground. Lol, I can be quite a…(ok Im trying to find another word for bitch here). Like Jo – we hated each other. I was a snob and couldn’t bring myself to socialize with public school people. As for MJ, he just brought out the rage in me and I still have no idea why. Um. And there were others I can’t mention lol. I don’t know why I have such a hard time trusting people. Anyway, gold medals to you, my friends who have tolerated me ;) and now I get all mushy over them and cant stop buying them things and wanting to pinch their cheeks!

Of course, I did have my bouts of freaking out over results, but I ended up getting my deans com! Thanks to…zulu.lol. Stressing just doesn’t work. It just makes your jaw sore from grinding your teeth.
So I just let the control-freak in me go this holiday ;) And it taught me lotsa things and mum and I had a blast…she learning to type with one hand!

There were endearing offline messages, colourful songs…there were new friendships like the blogger dinner. There were inspiring books and not-so inspiring movies. Ahem. And there was dancing alone in the lounge to 90’s songs ;)
There were gorgeous sunsets…

And every minute meant something worthwhile (no, I haven’t been reading Richard Branson’s book for the 25th time), and there were some dull and rage-filled moments and crying sessions at 2am, but this holiday proved to be such an adventure. I was nearly in this play, but I had to let it go, there was too much going on. Oh! And there was Jo’s sister’s wedding! Jo looked sooo stunning! Mum and I ended up at table number 7 on the 7/7/2007 with Leeanda Reddy, Rajesh Gopi, Krijay Govender and this Kesegan guy with Jack Nicholson hair who insisted we rip the centre-piece apart and take it home just to pay tribute to the Indians within us.lol! Wasn’t feeling great that night, but it was a fairytale evening – and get this- there was wedding cake! And they shared it with the guests, but Jo didn’t get to taste any :(

And right now, we’re renovating the kitchen! Ooh, all black and silver and white and sexy hehe! (that’s where the box came in by the way- we don’t have like an egg farm or anything in case you’re wondering.) I can’t wait to chop tomatoes on a granite surface…wow, gives me shivers lol!

And while all these things were changing, and crazy dreams swirled around my mind in different directions, some things remained the same- I still miss Juju. I still love Michael Buble’s ‘Everything’ and…Hugo Deep Red still smells like heaven.
