Giveaway!

Today is my birthday and the end of the poll…

Only one of you were right.

I am officially 21 today.

Boo yah.

In order to celebrate, I am posting a giveaway! Like I promised. So many times 🙂

One of my favourite things in the world is reading. In this giveaway, you will receive some awesome and amazing books and accessories.

I love these books.

Not just because they are classics. Nor because syaing that I have read and studied themmakes me sound smart. But becuase they are the size of my ID book. Approximetly 10 X 15 cm, they fit perfectly inside your pocket or handbag. Plus they are only around 100 pages long (most are extracts of the orginal).

I will be sending you, the winner, a list of the titles I can get my hands on. You will have the option of which two titles you would prefer. You can also expect some other awesome goodies thrown in just for good measure.

Are you in?

If you want to enter this fabulous giveaway, all you gotta do is write a comment in this post. Your points will be added and entered into the draw.

Points go as follows:

1 point for:

Commenting this month. (Thats one point per comment for the entire month of April)
Nominating a favourite post

And 5 points for:

Posting about this giveaway (or how awesome I am) and telling me about it.
Following Slave to the Ordinary

Worth it? I hope so! 🙂

Giveaway closes 30 April at 00h00 (GMT +2). Results determined by Random.org

I thieve regularly

I totally stole this from Newly-wedded Wife’s post. I am totally okay with that too.

Don’t think less of me ok?

So the game goes like this. Go to your fourth folder in your pictures and click on the fourth folder. Find the fourth photo, post it along with an explanation.

The fourth photo in my folder is from my engagement party. A family member took a few snapshots of us… These two are my favourite and are number 4 and 5 in my list.

Humiliating the Aussies.

This morning I got such a beautiful wake up listening to our local radio station. Darren (whackhead) Simpson pranked 2day Fm in Sydney. How brilliant is this?

As payback for recent criticism, Simpson posed as Tom Cruise’s crew and claimed to offer Kyle and Jackie O a phone interview with Tom Cruise. 2day FM promoted and prepared for the interview extensively only to find that they had been fooled. The Australian prankers had been pranked by South Africa’s very own Prankster. I will admit, Kyle and Jackie O handled the surprise very graciously. Go Darren!

I can’t help but wonder (and look forward to) when Jackie O gets Darren back for this wonderful morning guffaw (let’s be honest, it wasn’t a mere giggle but a “lets get the guy sitting opposite to me in traffic to stare at my open mouth and closed eyes” guffaw)

If you want to listen to the prank yourself, go here.

Oh yes, and didn’t South Africa kick the Aussies in the Cricket? I sure think they did.

I like camping

I am really looking forward to this weekend. Its a 5 day weekend for me mostly because my company is taking off Monday and tuesdays is a Public Holiday. This is rad. My family and some friends of the family are all going to make a noise and party til the break of dawn. The Fi can only come part time since his silly boss demands he works on the Monday. Dumb.

So in essence tonight I will look like this

Except in colour. And there will be many more people. woohoo!

My top Seven Favourite things about camping are:

1. The Food. I don’t eat bread, chocolate, or any other carbohydrate and I haven’t for a month. This wedding means weight loss means no bread or anything like that. So camping means braais! (BBQs) and Potjies! (stewish stuff) and biltong (beef jerky but yummier!)

2. The Fire. burn baby burn.

3. The company. Camping means lots of friends which means lots of laughter and games! which brings me to numero 4

4. Games! I am the poker champion. Bring it on boys!

5. The Fiance. Obviously camping with him is great!

6. The wildlife. I love the possibility that a rhino will crash into my tent. (or not)

7. Camping makes me feel wild and unpredictable. I am just that hardcore!

Mememememememememe!

*oops! I posted this without an edit and noticed there were parts that were written really crappy. Ok so maybe I didn’t catch all of them but I at least gave it a once over and my laptop has not eaten portions of the text!! 🙂 *

Last week I was tagged. But since I had so many posts half written I forbade myself to skimping out and doing the easy meme. So now that I have cut down on my blog
portions, here I am fulfilling my tagged posts.

This taggity was from Hillybilly Duhn. She is seriously the coolest Hillbilly I know. My Mother’s Father lives in Missouri and trust me, she is way more fabulous than him.

1. What is your funniest childhood story?
When I was a kid I liked showing my way cool princess panties to every friend I could. Especially the neighbor boy… I got caught that time and got the worse hiding of my life. Still remember the pain even now… Not funny I know. I am just a not funny kinda gal.

2. What would your dream dress look like if you could design it?
um Pretty. And probably utterly fabulous. And totally not like anything anyone else has worn. It would be shocking!

3. What weird habit does your hubby have?
Hubby-to-be has a few really weird habits But if I were to pick the weirdest…When he gets angry or tired he blows on both his arms. And it relay bugs him if I counter-balance his equilibrium. In fact, it’s really really funny when I counter-balance the equilibrium. He freaks.

4. How many cookbooks are in your kitchen?
Just one actual cookbook. The Fi gave it to me for our year landmark of being together. I am still not sure what that means… Maybe I am really that bad of a cook.

5. Granny panties or loyal Victoria Secret girl?
Neither. Temptations baby.

6. My favorite memory from 2008 so far is?

The day that the Fi proposed. *sigh*

7. I secretly…

stutter. Its not really a secret if you’ve ever heard me do it, but I have gotten really good at not do it. Except when I get really excited or speak spanish. I am a spanish stutterer.

8. I could really go for…

Ice cream. or chocolate. or anything Carb orientated. *sigh of diet sorrow.* *sigh of looking freaking good in my wedding dress*

9. We are going to have a big snowstorm and you will find me…

Dancing in the snowfall then locking myself in the house with candles and hot chocolate!

10. I knew he was the one…

gradually. There wasn’t a specific moment when I thought to myself, “I am going to marry this man” Apparently, the Fi had this moment. I just had this peace and sense that gradually grew.

Now to tag 3 more people. I choose…

Sco-man (gotcha back- mwahaha *evilness inserted here*)
Yaya

PS Totally gotta check out those blogs. They are F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.

Tagyoureit

Thank you for the tag Average20something and Sco-man!

Here’s the rules for this tagyoureitgame:

1) Each player starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.
2) People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3) At the end of your blog post, you need to tag eight people and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and to read your blog.
4) If you have already been tagged and do not wish to go through the exercise then let the taggee know.

Let’s rock this thing: Ok…

1)My little toe isn’t really a toe. It’s more like a stump. No one knows why. The poor things hardly even grow nails…

2) I have three colours of fingernail varnish, bright orange (given to me by Meeka my BFF), grey, and burnt pink (which is nearly finished). So if you wanna send me some more, in more fabulous “married person” colours, it would be appreciated. 😉

3)I have this thing about checking my email. I. Need. To. Check. It. Constantly.

4)Right now I am refusing to eat bread, pasta and potatoes purely because I ate so many of them while I was a starving student

5)My favourite thing to drink is strawberry juice. I feel like a kid everytime I have to suck the seeds from my teeth…

6)I learned this was my favourite drink while working as a cocktail waitress. If anyone asks me if they should be waitresses, I scream a loud NO!.

7)As I type this, I have hairdye colouring my gorgeous locks… And I told the Fi that the time he sees me he had to notice. And tell me I look beautiful!

8)I am terrified of insects. Really freakishly scared. I see one, I cry.
