“Dogs have Owners, Cats have Staff.”


"on the stoop w/ my dogs, drinking jasmine tea"

it's my new favourite hobby
to drink tea outside at sunset and just watch them

 

"If you don't own a dog, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life"







"Many years ago, when an adored dog died, a great friend, a bishop said to me, "You must always remember that as far as the Bible is concerned, God only threw the humans out of Paradise"


they're the single most amazing things that i've ever been blessed with

they're always there for hugs and kisses
and are always so excited, each and everytime they see me

how can you explain a love like that?


and pixie is incredibly jealous and such an attention seeker
and rusty thinks a pet on the head is the best gift i could ever give him

and...
as much as i want a little puppy,
they do complete my life.

freckles



only the best movies
silly conversations
crystallized by the XX on guitar
(played by me, and played even better by nicolas)

sushi
good music
spilling popcorn infront of the entire movie theater and then being the only one to laugh about it

pizza
water fountains
home renovations planning

tea
lots of tea
jasmine tea

jade nailpolish
vanilla incense
chocolate

family

photographs
sleep overs
wii

trying to keep calm
and thinking about nothing but God

this weekend was lovely.


xoxo


it's a lovely song



I was a little girl
alone in my little world
who dreamed of a little home for me.
I played pretend between the trees,
and fed my house guests bark and leaves,
and laughed in my pretty bed of green.


  I had a dream
that I could fly
from the highest swing.
I had a dream.


Long walks in the dark
through woods grown behind the park,
 I asked God who I'm supposed to be.
 The stars smiled down on me,
God answered in silent reverie.

I said a prayer and fell asleep.


I had a dream
that I could fly from the highest tree.
I had a dream.


Ooooooohhoooooohhhoooooh


I had a dream

Oh Fuck

it's past 2am
and i've been meaning to blog about a boy

and if you know me when it comes to blogging, then you should know i procrastinate to the max

this time a took it a step further and typed
"how to better yourself"
into google
yes.
it happened.
bet you didn't take me seriously when i said i like to procrastinate, until now

and this mini quiz came up
which i took of corse
and Oh My Fuck

i know it's late
and that i should make tea and probs go pack the dishwasher
but the results are so close to accurate

flip.
......i really should go to bed

anyway, take a look:


Your view on yourself:
You are intelligent, honest and sweet. You are friendly to everybody and don't like conflict. Because you're so cheerful and fun people are naturally attracted to you and like to talk to you.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:
You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?

Your views on education
Education is less important than the real world out there, away from the classroom. Deep inside you want to start working, earning money and living on your own.

The right job for you:
You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:
Success in your career is not the most important thing in life. You are content with what you have and think that being with someone you love is more than spending all of your precious time just working.

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don't ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.

Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.


and maybe im crazy to be blogging about this
maybe this is another form of procrastination

but all i can say, is that if you didn't know me 
you now have a basic understanding


and yes there's so much more to me
but....
actually i dont have a but

and while im telling people how they should feel about me
i might as well add that i hate judgemental people
and people who are mean and make fun of others for a laugh

grow up!

xoxo




Dear parents.


#butreally




old friends die hard.





a while ago an old friend sent me this
she wrote it for me at the end of matric
and i honestly still think its the sweetest thing


"Dearest Lisa’tjie
Having you as a friend has added so much value to my life: from the first time I spoke to you- (I was in desperate need of a photo coping card in grade 9- Ms Simpson’s class.) You were the only one who owned one AND with R10 credit on- freak! Haha. I told you that you were my guardian angel, you just laughed. I remember when my nail broke you wiped out a fully equipped ‘tool box/ pencil case’ to pass me a nail file. When my Matric ball dress fell apart you gave me a pin and everything was just fine! How do I say Thank You- it’s just two small words with so much meaning.
Having you as a friend meant 2 hour phone calls, laughing till I cry and forgetting to say goodbye. Having you as a friend meant listening to boys stories, spending lunch time giving you advice and you agree to take it. When Mondays come, you had done the exact opposite! Having you as a friend meant concentrating really hard to remember all the boys names lol J “Ammy, you know (insert name) from (insert place), his really funny and cute, I like him! My response: “Ah Lisa but his like ancient old and that like illegal!” Haha. I guess having you as a friend meant that I had to be the “Aunty” in the relationship- well, not all the time.
Having you as a friend meant living life to the fullest, being daring and enjoying every moment of it! Even though you might have done a few silly things, you were incredibly bright and you were my special friend. So from the first photo coping card to the first Heineken you bought me, I knew that we would have a great friendship!
Keeping all this in mind, it makes saying goodbye (at the end of matric) a little easier because I know that a HUGE part of you will always be with me!"

we aren't friends anymore
and i remember clearly how she ended our friendship
her stupid reasons
 i cant even be heartbroken about it

if someone doesn't want to be in my life thats their issue

and she still kinda keeps in touch
mostly bc i think she feels bad, and misses me

im not even sure why she sent me this email
or what she expects me to say

maybe she knows she made a mistake and wants me to feel sorry for her
maybe she wants to know if i feel the same way
maybe she wants to be friends again





LOL

people are stupid.

thoughts when drunk #butreally












Wednesday, July 13, 2011

im drunk, not stupid




you know how your friends say "you could have any guy you want"
its true
guys are easy
the trick when you're drunk, comes when you have to pick a guy
a guy who's worth your time

someone who will buy you drinks
crack afew jokes
dance like a pro
and basically make you feel like a million bucks

this kinda guy isn't really hard to find, if you're goodlooking and maybe a lil tipsy already
or maybe im just really good at finding this kind of guy
#manipulationiskey

you shouldn't settle for anything less, no matter how low your standards are
you shouldn't be too easy
and you shouldn't waste your time with some loser
bc in this time, you could be chatting it up with mr right now

never feel obligated to talk to a loser
its okay to:
  1. take your drink and go
  2. let him help you up on stage and then dance with his friend
  3. say "gross, go away"
  4. tell the nearest guy that he's annoying you and let that guy deal with him
  5. take his cigarette -- bc this is basically like saving his life
  6. walk away [sidenote, only do this in emergency cases, walking away shows weakness, and is soo much effort, why walk away, when you can make him do it!]
  7. tell him you dont like him "I DONT LIKE YOU! YOU'RE STUPID" .... honesty is the best policy
coming across losers is a part of life
and when sober, losers are much easier to deal with

but

never let a loser bring you down
and try not to kiss him
though if you do, you could always deny it for the rest of your life, so its super chilled if you do
though, kissing losers only makes them more clingy, so save yourself the trouble

practise makes perfect
so practise not letting losers get in your way
go out, get drunk and have an amazing night with mr right now

be invincible to losers!

bitches rule.

i like not being smart when it comes to you


my love for #myGuy isn't logical
it isn't even really real

but he's the perfect distraction

the best





i saw him briefly Friday night
i also realised that i dont like him as much as i thought i did

i don't know what im going to do about him





oh
and i stole his beanie.


xoxo






love me or leave me alone.


been having such a good day, up until now
nicolas left, and im home alone

(yes burning horrible smelling incense changes my mood)

i dont even feel like blogging

my nails are metallic silver and look like coins
im drinking delicious tea
am having a good hair day
and im listening to "top of the world" on repeat

still, im bleak

maybe i need to take a nap
maybe i shouldn't have gone to bed at 5am


maybe i wish people were a little nicer
and that i wasn't so heartbroken all the time
(yes, last night hurt)

everything shouldn't be this hard

sometimes i wonder


its past 4am
and ever since this afternoon i've been wondering....

i sat for hours, just in his arms
and we talked

i played with his hair
and he tangled his fingers in what ever loose item of clothing i was wearing

he really liked me

and now that its all over
i cant forget

(and if it were up to me, i'd never have wanted it to end)

"why wont you call me emma?" #modernfamilyquote



and im sitting here on the floor drinking mint green tea
wondering if he misses me,
 if those moments meant as much to him as it did to me

i am so inlove with him.

i wonder if he remembers....





i miss him.


xoxo
