It’s a Tripple Tag Fiesta!

22 February , 2009

No ramble this week from me. ‘ll give you quick highlights though. Friday night I went to what was initially supposed to be a bloggirls dinner but which turned into a tweet-up of note at Cranks in Rosebank. I was lucky enough that Jenty lives close by and offered to give me a lift because I have no idea where anything is in Rosebank and I can say without a doubt – with or without GPS, I would not have found it. You can see some of the photos here.

Saturday I did almost nothing. Oh except, I had all most of my hair hacked off by the first random stranger with a pair of scissors I could find. It happened to be a very friendly (and deaf-ish) Belgium guy called Searge at the Randridge Mall Mai Lai Hair salon.

Sunday I went to a restaurant called Buitengeluk in Broadacres for yet another baby shower. It’s really a beautiful place, now that I know where it is I might go there more often. Lots of babies and pink fluffy stuff all over. Oh, and I won a huge candy cane with a compitition. The rules were simple: each person got issued 3 safety pins and if you hear someone say the word “baby” then you take one of theirs. The person with the most pins at the end of the party gets the prize…I had 27. I gave a couple of people leeway, I could have had close to 40.

In the meantime, while I was out and about it seems all hell broke loose in blogland. Hundreds of posts to read, and from the ones I’ve already had a look at there’s already 3 different photo meme tags. So this is what I’m going to do: I’m going to do them all, one after the other here. I’m going to tag a whole bunch of people. You can play if you want to, leave it if you don’t. And if you like one more that I didn’t tag you for you can switch. Sound fair?

(also I know some of you taggees run very specialised content blogs, so I won’t take it personally if you can’t make this fit there).

Here goes…

Photo Meme 1 – compliments of Miss P

  1. Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random.The first random Wikipedia article you get is your band name.
  2. Go to Quotations Page and select “random quotations” or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.
  3. Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
  4. Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.
  5. Post it to your blog  and tag the friends you want to join in.

Show me what your bedside table looks like.

Here’s mine…

Underneath is a water bottle and my portable hard drive. Ta-dah! Oh and it’s on wheels so it moves around to face me wherever I am. 🙂 Ps! Those filing cabinets at the back contain mostly shoes.

I tag Laura, Miss P, Freddy, Glugster, Don’t believe, Adam, Sheebee, Kyk, Hoox, Hans and Riply.

Photo Meme 3 – compliments of Laura

  1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can’t go into your closet and pull out your favourite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
  2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we’d love to hear it.
  3. Show us what’s in your purse. Spill it out! Take pictures! Tell us what it is!
  4. Tag some chicks. (sorry boys, but I’m guessing not a lot of you carry bags around anyway).

Photo Meme 3a

This here is my standard bag (and no Laura, I DO NOT have a pink bag – I do however have a red one but that’s only for special occasions) 😉 Everything I am about to show you was in the bag when I took the first photo. I think this bag cost me about R200 about 5 years ago, I needed a black bag for a funeral – little did I know how much “rubbish” I would end up carting around in it. I swear, the bigger the bag the more shit I carry around.

Here goes:

Photo Meme 3b

What have we got here: Lotto ticket, post office collection slip, post box renewal slip payslip, car radio face plate, three loose keys (safe key, desk key, secret compartment on a antique sowing machine key), two types of lip gloss, two types of lip balm, one shiny pebble that I picked up somewhere, two spare lighters, five spare pens, one ring, one nail file, one lollipop, one leatherman like gadget, one pocket knife, one elephant hair/copper bracelet, one GPS (Nellie!) and green carrying pouch with charger in it, one standard purse with too many useless cards and not enough cash in it, oh and the coolest gadget pen ever (it screws open and has both a star and a normal screw driver point inside, and a magnet at the end), spare pack of smokes, pain killers, eye drops, hand cream, 6G worth of memory sticks, office keys, car keys, house keys. And room to spare. 😉

I tag ExMi, Jenty, DT, Rox, Wipneus, Tamara, Nursemyra, Merriemuis, Po, Phillygirl, Antie Koekie, Jo-Ann, Ruby and Arkwife.

Okay…I think that about covers it. It’s okay, you can hate me now if you feel like it. 😀

  8. Hehe, cool tag – I shall do this tomorrow morning!

  9. Did we win? Are we millionaires yet?

    Ok, so now to take a photo of my desk and show the world what sort of crap I keep beside me while I sleep… 😛

  10. Angel, cool – I look forward to seeing what you come up with. 🙂

    Wipneus, dammit I haven’t taken the photo yet…thanks for reminding me!

    J.D., I hope so too. *crosses fingers* 😉

    Rox, would you believe me if I told you I found another one today? I’m keeping them now till I have three to do at a time, or you guys will start thinking that’s all I ever blog about.

    Freddy, I haven’t checked. I’m thinking we should check it together when we do our monthly McBreakfast? And yes, please do show off your beside table odds and ends. 😉

  11. Where is the pics of da hair??

  12. Sorry sorry, had some connection problems – it’s up now.

  13. Do I have to do all three tags? Can I pick one?

    And I love that you file your shoes away. How organised 😉

  14. 😆 No Tamara, you only have to do one – if you feel like doing more then go ahead!

    As for the shoes, I had to put them somewhere. I used to have a built in cupboard that’s from ceiling to roof about 3,5 meters long and 1 meter deep (pretty damn awesome). Then my shoes lived in various squashed places in CT where I generally had about a third of that cupboard space and now I that I’m in a different part of the house I have 1 antique armoir and two filing cabinets.

    My shoes are very happy where they are now. 🙂

  15. Hectic. You know I do not have a handbag! What to do what to do… I will try and think of something 🙂

  16. 😆 No, I did not know that Po! Why don’t you do one of the other ones then?

  17. Eeek – I have been meaning to clean out my bag for ages! Get ready for everything but the kitchen sink!
    I want one of those gadget pens!!

  18. Fantastic, I look forward to seeing what you cart around with you DT. 😀

    A supplier gave me the gadget pen years ago, and it’s come in really handy from time to time. Not so much the magnet, but certainly the little screw drivers.

Say something...come on! You know you want to?
