Playing around!!!

Get your mind out of the gutter! I mean playing around on Picasa! =]

I was thinking of posting something different and decided on photos, so I played around on Picasa, chose a few pics, edited them and came out with this!! =]

My doggy, Max!
I have no idea.... But it looks funky!












So whactha think??

Lol, I am not the best photographer, nor editor. But I had so much fun!

Have a great day!!!

Oh, you didn’t miss me, did you???


This post was supposed to go up on FRIDAY!! But my computer is very very nasty with me and only works after heavy persuasion [a kick or five] and I only got it up TODAY!!!! So sorry

BTW, Mark, I do hope you feel better!

Wow… I almost appeared to drop of the face of the earth didn’t I?!?!

I am SO sorry, but it’s not like any one missed me =]

Let’s recap!!!

So, the weekend [last weekend] was ‘farm weekend’ with the work people!!

Well. Actually it wasn’t a real farm and we were more in the lake than in the bush! But it was fantastic!! I didn’t go to sleep till past two, the whole weekend!! And Saturday we ‘RAVED’ with my boss and his wife!! And his little ten-year old girl [my new favourite person ever] stayed up with us till one!! She is legendary…

The weekend was all about games, fishing [not me!!!!!!!!!], swimming, drinking and gossiping! I loved every single second of it!!


Sunday I fell asleep the second I SAW my bed and I only turned on my PC Monday evening, when the thunder-storm attacked me!!! So that was another no go!


Tuesday evening was our year-end function and we went to Turffontein to play horses! So wicked!! I had a few lucky strikes and was very lucky on my last horse ‘Formidable’ it was his first run and I played him for a win! And he WON!!!!!

Such an amazing feeling!


Wednesday night was ladies night with the Sister! We went for a movie and cocktails and reconnected a bit, the movie [a local production] sucked a bit, but that didn’t matter!

Once again I got home past ten!


Thursday was my boss’s birthday and we went to Ocean Basket [not the best place for an anti-seafood person]. Before hand me and three of the ladies from work went for Cosmo’s!! And at Ocean Basket, we chilled there until ten!!! But it was such a great night! I was ‘initiated’  with a Women’s Revenge [some random shot] and I have never laughed so much!!!


Today was a tiiiiiiiiiiiiiired day at work, we spent half the time lounging around and still got work done [wow] and now my main goal for the weekend is catching up on sleep, hopefully next week will be less busy!

But I will update on my journal, and post throughout the weekend, just to make you all sick of me, just incase I disappear again!! =]

Until I post again, here is a few photies!!! =]



It was Bloody Brilliant!!

In case you don’t have me on FB and didn’t read the hundred statuses about me going to watch Harry Potter 7 last night, I went to watch HP7 last night!!!

And the only possible words to describe it is BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!

I had my doubts…. Because a lot of people said it didn’t live up to their expectations, but to me it was amazing!!! But my professional opinion later!


The evening began on the drive, I made us [me and Sis] a mix CD with some chart topping songs which got us straight into a party mood and little could burst my bubble!


When we got to Clearwater Mall we discovered that a whole bunch of new shops opened up since our last visit there and after we got our tickets we went exploring and searched for a great place to have dinner. But before we could even think of dinner Sister discovered Marcels, a FroYo place….

My love for Frozen Yogurt is still to be discovered so I settled for dark chocolate ice-cream while sis enjoyed Vanilla FroYo. The best part of that, except the chocolate, was my Yum card! Its a card where, once it is full of stickers, I get a free small tub of ice-cream! Rewards for eating ice cream??? I’m in!

We then decided on Juicy Lucy for dinner, a sweet lace with the greatest breakfast!! But I decided it was WAY too late for breakfast breakfast, so I decided to order a Bacon Cheesa [rye bread with bacon and YUMMY cheese sauce] while sis ate a bacon and chicken wrap!

I just realized how weird all that sounded as dinner!!! =]

Finally it was time for HP!!

I promise no spoilers!

I loved every moment of the movie…

It was very true to the book, not so very rushed liked the 6th movie, although the time went by WAY too fast, and before I knew I was crying and the movie was done! [If you read the books, you would know why I was crying, if not, I promised no spoilers!]

There was perhaps one part that wasnt in the book, but otherwise every important part was there, they did a great job with filling in the blanks the previous movies created, and what I loved the most was the dialogue, it was unbelievably true to the book!

One thing that I didn’t like, like most people, was the ending! It was very sudden… But it had to happen, other it would’ve been a six-hour movie, or a very vague movie! So kudos to Warner Bros to making it so very amazing!!!

Who watched it already?? What did you think???



Pictures Galore! Holly The Strange

Once again… I SUCK!!!! You see her saying 550th comment? I am now at 800! So you know how much I suck….

Hey guys and girliez! Holly [The Strange] here, Marliz3e invited me to do a guest post to celebrate her 550th comment (which was mine!)

So what I’ve done here is Ten Things That Make Me Happy. Some are going to be incredibly obvious, but I’m just that type of person. To make this a bit different I’m including photographs to illustrate this list. Enjoy!

First one (and only one that’s in order) is *My Chemical Romance* (I said I’m obvious!) They have been my favorite band for what is coming up to 3 years now (at time of posting.) In those few years they went from being a band that make music that I love, to something that I now almost worship… the “almost” part might be officially omitted at some point.


Next up is *Books/Reading.* This has always been one of my favorite hobbies since I was really young. What really got me started was when my Dad read me the Harry Potter series, then I wanted to read it for myself.



Something that has always made me happy is *dogs!* I don’t have my own, but when I’m older I intend to get two. Instead of finding a real dog to photograph I’ve decided to take a photo of a few of my stuffed toy dogs. The Chihuahua at the back I call “Mega-Death,” because if I had a real one that’s what I’d call it.


Another thing that makes me happy is how I dress. You can probably blame my favorite band for turning me to the “dark-side” but after discovering alternative music I developed a love of *alternative clothing* to go with it. The brand “Emily the Strange” is where I took my blog name from.


Another fairly obvious one is *The Sims.* I’ve been playing ever since I was seven when I played Sims 1 at an old friends house. It is how I first bonded with my best friend and I plan to get a Sims tattoo when I’m older. What’s not to love about making then controlling the lives of virtual people? Especially when you know that there’s a whole community of other people who share your love and are just as willing to show it!


This next one I share with my Dad, one thing we can both agree on is that *New York* is the best city we’ve been to! He’s been a lot more times than me, but from what I’ve seen I’m pretty convinced. It really is as good as it’s made out to be.


You might think I’m a bit of girly girl when I say that I love jewelry, however my favorite kind is *jewelry that looks like weapons.* Creepy I know, but I’m such a sucker for razor blade earrings!


One that’s displayed here and on my blog is *photography.* I really enjoy taking photos, it’s like capturing created art. My photos are displayed on both of my blogs.


Another one that’s displayed on my blog is *drawing.* I’m no good, but I love that feeling of being inspired and creating the amazing idea that I’ve come up with. My collection is displayed on my main blog, (HollyTheStrange.)


This last one is the only time I’m proud of myself, I’m not the best writer in the world, but I’m probably the second worst. I love *knowing that I write better than Stephenie Meyer!* That woman can’t write. For anyone wondering how the photo is linked to this, it’s the front cover of the book I’m currently writing.

So that’s it for now guys! It’s been fun making this guest post and I hope you all like reading it.

Thank you Holly!! I truly am sorry to only get it up now!!! If I own any one a response to anything, please let me know, cause I forget so easily!!!
