to strain an eyeball?
I woke up yesterday... with a very sore eyeball. If I move my eye around, I have this pain in my eyeball socket.
I think I'm falling apart.
I went to the Pinkies Party on Saturday. It's basically a festival with free alcohol (yes, I know...it was crazy) and great South African bands like Evolver, Voodoo Child, Flat Stan and Prime Circle. Everyone has to wear pink and the outfits are crazy. It was really awesome but the weather stuffed it up a bit. We left at 8pm, drenched. I was wearing a pink feather boa. Have you ever smelt a wet feather boa? Yuck!
How shit is this weather? We're supposed to be in the middle of summer and I have vapour breath. It is so cold. 11 degrees today. I had to open up the Winter Cupboard and find something that isn't too creased.
It's been raining constantly now for 3 days. It hasn't stopped. Not for an hour or a minute. It's not even rain really...more like a constant fine spray that get's harder at times.
I feel like I'm sitting in the UK. I also finally get why poms drink so much tea. I'm a tea loving person as it is, but I can't quite explain it, drinking a hot cup of tea in this weather is awesome. I have no idea what it is, but drinking tea when it's grey, cold and rainy is so divine.
I am having a dinner party tonight! I am making my own fresh gravy, roast chicken (2 of them...their are lots of hungry boys) crispy roast potatoes, peas and freshly beaten chocolate mousse.
Wish me luck....I'm learning how to do all of this. So far so good, but I'm scared. Yes, I know you scoff, but I fear cooking. Really. Spiders, the dark and cooking.
I feel like I should be Bree from Desperate Housewives....oh except we don't have enough matching plates and not enough wine glasses so people will be drinking wine from tea cups.
I am quite excited though to serve and see people enjoy my food..... hopefully.
Hopefully, no one will be stopping by McDonalds on their way home!
