Work and play

So, my meetings went on a little longer than expected. Surprise, surprise!

I'm feeling absolutely exhausted and while you all party away the night before the public holiday, think of lil ol' me lying here trying to fall asleep because this "good girl" has work in the morning. God I've become boring. Seriously. What happened to "living on the edge?"
Who the hell knows? Miss Responsibilty is in bed early and I might as well just add a nice cup of warm milk and honey to the mix. Argh.
I've even switched my phone off because all my mates are reminding me that I'm 25 years old and being an old hag.

"Just come for one drink!"
"Yes, it sounds all lovely now, but while you sleep in; I'm getting up for a regular working day!"
"Blondieeeee!! Pull an all niiiighterrrr!!" It's amazing how the nagging always sounds whiney!
"Dude no. I'll catch up with you tomorrow. Braai at my place for National Braai Day and Heritage Day tomorrow afternoon!"
I've been through this with 5 of my mates.
Like I said. B-O-R-I-N-G!

I got an email from my longest mate JB about growing up...here it is:

Soooo, her I sit, CSI: Miami (totally rocks my world) is on, my laptop is on the lap (as it should) and I'm trying to get sleepy.
Ha! The man is even out with his buddies.
I'm this close to breaking out into Akon's Chipmunkey "Lonely". You know it's bad, then.


Good start.
Nope, nothing. This warm milk and honey is starting to look more inviting by the second!

Good night.

PS> Happy Heritage Day and Braai Day!

PPS> Congratulations Danny and Lee...I'm so happy for the both of you! Thanks for your sms' over the weekend!

Hope you had a good sleep, I can relate to the getting old syndrome, my diea of a fun time seems to be watching a DVD these days!

Lopz said...

Oh my god, I can't believe how true that list is... especially the part at the end about looking for one point that doesn't apply to you! So I guess this means I'm well and truly old then. Shit. How the hell did that happen???

The Dumpee said...

You're not getting old, you're just too busy. I hear you, although I did go out last nite!

Doesn't happen often enough though.

Miss T said...

It is scary how much of that list I can relate to...

Kitty Cat said...

Ha - I'm 10 days away from being officially "old"...
Is that Danny K and Lee Anne that you refer to? Are they engaged or what? Sorry, I'm picking up on an interesting stompie/gossip piece here.

Kitty, it is them -they got engaged over the weekend. He proposed in Central Park, NY! How romantic!! ;-)

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Po, you see? Now that sounds like a brilliant idea! DVD nights!! :-) I made up for it today, though...I'll blog about that later!!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Exactly Lopz -oh man, I still feel 18 and yet at the same time 25 is HARDLY old! The shit thing? These past 5 years flew by and I was in my early twenties. The next 5 years are surely going to go even faster and then I hit 30.
I need a drink.

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Hey the Dumpee... thanks for popping in, I'll check your blog out!
See? At least you still went out!! Good for you!!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Miss T - freaky, right? Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap...pass me my eye cream please!

Kitty Cat said...

Ooh, cute! I thought so.
