White wonderland

Look at the snow on top of the leaves...looks like jewels for the picking

The snow on our front lawn....and a few of the neighbour's yards too.

Pictures by Priya


Little white angels gently caressing the air before falling to the is a pity that I missed it actually falling but I think I covered up when I ran out of the house in my PJs to take photos. A few neighbours may now think that I belong in an asylum...but what the hell? It was worth it. I even managed to make a mini snowball but there was no one to throw it at...DAMN!

Forgive my excitement, but I feel like a lil wee kiddie on Christmas morning...with the snow! Alright, here in Johannesburg we hardly ever get a chance to have this experience and it thrilled me to my bones.

Oh, and thanks to those who tried to wake me up last night to watch the snow as it fell. However, my phone was on silent so I stayed in dreamland instead of running out to play.

This new header means...

...that I know a certain genius someone, who is also brilliant when it comes to photoshop. Damn that girl has many talents!

And that certain someone has become my friend, a confidante and my sister.

We have experienced a world of adventures since we wrote profiles on each other in Journalism 101...who have have ever thought back then that I would be blogging about her today?!

So to you, dearest Susu, a heartfelt thanks...for the header, the laughs, the bitching sessions and the cake!

You are one of the best skanks I know.

Tag again

I have been hunted down to do a tag again...this time by Lord Anshul.

I have a theory here: tags a just sneaky ways of bloggers to seem more real. But we not, dammit, we are not! Just entities randomly meeting in a fashionable club called bloggerville.

On my right hip...teeth marks from a dog that felt the need to make a meal out of me. So yeah, the marks are on both sides of my hip.

They bare...makes my room look a tad neater. :) oh, wait, and mirrors with Pinocchio characters on them.

It is a frosted pink one that slides open.

Again, S.O

Extreme makeover: blog edition

A disturbing thought fleeted into my mind: my previous pink template was something Paris Hilton would have liked and her role model, Barbie would have approved of it too. It was also girlie girl, and I only have a few girlie moments.

And though my love affair with pink is not over entirely, my pink blog was begging to be released out of its misery.

A nip, a tuck, months of pain (translated into a couple of split seconds in blog time)and a few brush strokes later: voila!

Is that a horn I hear?

Yes, and I am tooting it myself. :)

But in any case, bloggers may be interested in reading this: a story about blogs.

This week on Post Secret

One for the ladies out there...even if you do not want a male in the future. :)

Ode to Frosty from the other mummy

My baby, you are gone
and I’m still here
I don’t know how to carry on
Year after year

Your passing has left a hole
That will forever remain in my soul
More than a year
And I still feel the same

The pain so raw
It visits again and again
It’s so hard to face the days without you
You are constantly in my thoughts

But I wish you were with me
I will never be the same
Your warm soulful knowing eyes
Our loving dreams

And playful schemes
We’d never say good byes….
Your tender kisses
Sometimes clumsy, sometimes wet
There is just so much more

That can be said
My pain at your absence
Is as deep as my love for you
You showed me what I needed to see

The love that lived in you
Also lived in me
I miss you more then you can ever know
And more than I can ever show!

Written by a heartbroken “mommy”
Varshika (a.k.a The Sister Person)

A bloody rude awakening

Its 2am. My nasal passages rival a bad orchestra as I happily trot around dreamland. A sudden light forces me to open my one eye that just accepts to wake up! Grrrrrr...

The Father Person: Priya, wake up. I want you to send a message for me. There is this competition on TV and you can win R10 000.
Priya: Wha?!
The Father Person: Just send the message *he actually explains how he got the right answer and it was so easy!*
Priya: *Types away with one eye open* Its not going through
The Father Person: Send it again
Priya: It is NOT going through... these things are just money making schemes! *fights to sleep again as she fumes*
