(Major kudos if you can name the crappy teenybop film my title is quoting!)
So, it’s half past ten and I am blogging in my pyjamas. On a Friday night. To be fair this was not part of the original plan but man-flu, station closures and siblings needing to stay in (to watch Austen adaptations, natch) led to a more laidback evening than I had originally envisaged! Nevertheless it was fun, good phone call with Banana, watched half of All About Eve (have you seen that film? Bette Davies is a goddess amongst women!), had some singing practice and then watched American Idol. Wow, some of those singers are….well…..not….good. To put it nicely. However, I really like Blake, Melinda, LaKisha and Jordin, so I like to check out how they are doing.
It’s been a busy couple of days, in a fun way. Yesterday I went down to Aberdeen to buy stuff and things, and have lunch with the delightful J and her gorgeous wee girl the Dot! It’s the first time I have ever met the Dot (what with J and her husband O insisting on living in Texas ;-)), and she is truly, truly lovely. Such a cutie – photos soon, I promise. The shopping was….interesting. I tried on about eleventy million things, but then gave up and went to buy CDs and DVDs instead! I know, I’m a wuss. Bought Begin To Hope by Regina Spektor, Entertainment by Gang of Four, Dionne Warwick’s Greatest Hits (I am so learning ‘Heartbreaker’, ‘Walk On By’ and her version of ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’ now. She’s amazing!) and an awesomely cheesy 80s movies mix (including the theme from ‘Ghostbusters’! Heck yes!).
Today the sibs and ma and I went through to Elgin for yet more shopping fun, and I actually found some clothes. I got a lovely outfit of an apple green dress and a white cardi – I now just need an event to wear it to! I also got fab shoes and the most comfortable jeans in the world.
And then I got to meet Maz for a coffee, huzzah! Despite a bout of man-flu, she was on form, and we had a fun couple of hours. The most amusing part was probably when we thought we’d been pooed on by a bird….
What had actually happened? Well I’d been smelling conditioners in the store (hahaha, long story) and had evidently squirted myself, then hugged Maria, and then viola, alleged bird poo.
Sometimes I worry I’m so dim that I may forget to respire ;-).
A weekend of nothing much stretches ahead, but I may try and make a cameo in a pub of some description Sunday because Lent will be over :-D. And then Monday evening I’m off to Glasgow to visit Dr L….yayness.
I’m loving being on holiday, but the time is just flying. I’m also grappling / dealing / working on something off blog, which may explain why my mind is racing but my writing’s just average this evening…
I’ll try and be more scandalous next time, mmmmkay?
Have a great weekend!
