Back in the CCCP

Long time no blog
so damn busy but will mention the following:

I now have a Flickr site - my photos on the web. Have just dumped them in there at the moment. Get yourself a Flickr, esp if you have a digital camera.

L is going to buy a Porsche Carrera - we went looking to check out a dark pinky red one with cream interior but it was sold, and he wants midnight blue. And then played blackjack at the Casino. May not have been in the money, but felt Money. Had my hand flicks down to a fine art, prob helped by ports and cocktails.

Norm Hewitt in Dancing with the Stars - I actually cried when Norm did the Paso Doble, he was ...
For those of you who missed it,

And check out the Kimster in his fur and white singlet

Such fun to be a medieval lady. Or Princess Fiona from Shrek as lots of the kids called me. One of the mums asked if that is my job ... supporting the Crusaders in dress ups, hmmm.

Slightly embarrassed back at work to be admitting Reuben Thorne is kinda cute (not realising a guy in the room's sister is Reuben's wife oops).

There were bowls of cherrios and they were so yummy, especially dripping in tomato sauce.

The Week that was

I love the song "Lonely" by Akon. Like the idea that the guy realises how much he misses the girl that put up with all his crap but also love it cos I have v fond memories of the song it is based on - "Miss Lonely" by Sandy Posey. My sister Barb and I had a special lp each - hers was Dusty Springfield with "Wishin and Hopin", Mine was Sandy.

Sandy was v American and v 60s - with a direct glance and a styley beehive.

Her voice had a bit of a twang. "Miss Lonely" - all about a girl whose love is a soldier, a lovely soldier. Maybe he was in Nam.

Just had a loverly scoff shared with Emma - rasp and white choc cheesecake and a piece of choc pistachio and apricot pate. And a latte. Risky I know given my genetic issues with coffee. But should get me going. And Tori Amos playing on the pc. Me and a gun.

Scary moment of the week: other than Japanese slippers, Golden Dreams, etc - Came to work on Monday and my little gnome was facing the wall with hands behind his back. Blair Witch!!
