On the brink of a weekend9 November , 2012
I am beyond excited about going to see Linkin Park tomorrow night. Wow, I can’t actually believe it’s finally here. It felt like so far into the future thing when we bought the tickets (I’m going with my boet and his girlfriend), and now it’s just one more sleep away. Whoop! 😀 I really really really hope they play Faint, my favourite LP song of all times.
On a completely unrelated note: this week I found that writing angry poems in peak hour is not a bad pastime. It’s the most peace a quiet I get in general, maybe that’s why it helps me think? I still don’t have my car radio sorted out, so unless I put some music on with my phone, it’s just me and the constant honking of f-ing taxis for at least 40 minutes in each direction daily. I have to be honest, I don’t hear the taxis anymore. Someone I know said to me the other day that they always see me in traffic but they can never get my attention by hooting – I really just tune that sound out completely.
Anyway, back to the poems. I have about three now, none of them really about my current life – I find that it’s just the best way for me to properly close a door sometimes. Once I’ve written about it, it’s neatly wrapped up as far as I’m concerned . I might stick them up here at some point – so don’t be surprised if they pop up in your feed reader eventually.
- Nicola has taken a liking to one of the mixing bowls in the set I bought recently. Of course the pink one. She likes to wear it as a hat, eat everything out of it, take it for a bath, one night this past week it even had to sleep with her! When we walk into the house in the evenings it’s almost the first thing she does – take out the pink mixing bowl.
- Ice cream – comfort food of choice for the pink terrorist.
- This is how you groom flowers. Bet you didn’t know that they needed their hair brushed while you talk to them. Now imagine this scene: Nicola lovingly brush their petals while telling them how beautiful they are. Cute hey? Not very good for the flowers though, but very sweet.
