"Practising juggling and passing routines with my sister, and laughing hysterically at our ineptitude."



I just found these photos to go with the text in found in my blog - they're from 2002 - do you like my plaits? :-)

Plus, it inspired me to create a new userpic of me and my little sister!

Rainy Sunday Online Shopping!



I am SO excited :-) I finally got round to ordering my IPOD Nano and accessorizes from the apple store! I ordered the 4GB Nano with engraving on the back (click on picture to read it!) Plus lanyard earphones, an arm band which fits the nano plus Nike widget (when I get it!) and a clear cover. It's odd, but I find it quite hard to spend money. I never think I've "deserved" it... Even though I've pretty much saved all of my salary so far, I still feel very quilty about buying an IPOD. Why is this? Answers on a postcard please :-)
I'm steadily ticking off my "back to work" treat list!

Oooh, and I also went a bit mad at Amazon and ordered some CDs (I have no scruples about spending money there!):
Cardio Bounce Video (for my rebounder)
When if Falls (Zero 7)
64-95 (Lemon Jelly)
The Understanding (Rökysopp)
The Miracle (Queen)
Language, Sex, Violence, Other (Stereophonics) (and doesn't it have a lovely stripy cover :-)?)

Week 34: The Party One

In honor of the party I'm in the middle of planning, it's...
Party Time!

Plan a party! You don't have to actually throw the party, but I want you to plan a fun party of any kind. Maybe it is a refined dinner party for adults. Maybe something funny or silly for kids. Maybe something in between.


The iPod Party...

I'd love to plan an Ipod party in honour of my soon to arrive IPod Nano :-)
Time: Saturday evening, as summer turns into autumn
Guests: all my friends, with a sense of rhythm and a heart of tunes
Location: Our lounge, lots of floor cushions, candles, CDs
Dress Code: Chilled out and comfortable
Food: Comfort food for chilly nights: sausage and mash, toad in the hole, rataouille, garlic bread, banana custard, bread & butter pudding
Drink: Tea :-), red wine, beer, hot whiskeys, mulled wine
The plan: Guests arrive with laptops and Ipods. We mix playlist in advance and take turns at hooking our IPODs up to the speaker system (which I don't have yet :-). We swap playlists. We play "name that tune" and discuss our favourite 80s Rock gods :-)
