Promised Nicky a trip to the costume museum yesterday. Did we make it? Did we heck?!!
After Saturday’s delicious curry at the Al-Bilal where I did indeed opt for their special Sizzling Tandoori Chicken Platter with Jalfrezi sauce and horrified the vegetarian in Nicky when it, funnily enough, turned up sizzling on a platter, we waddled back to the flat and collapsed. Or at least Nicky did, she zonked out on the sofa while I drank far too beer in front of the computer and nattered on at Vile.
Seeing as the webcam is fooked and that it can now only seem to focus on things at extreme closeup I decided to use this new found ability to its advantage and provided Vile with a photo slide show of the many horrible incarnations of the pinK and not so pinK. Frightening. And he STILL wants to visit! That boy is warped. (YAY!)
Spent most of Sunday lounging after my late night, while Nicky spent most of Sunday lounging after her wussing out and going to bed early. Hmmm.
Motivated myself enough around 4 o’clock to head on out to Sale to kick some arse. We did more destruction again today. I was very proud of myself and kicked my way through some more boards, but now I’m grumpy because when it came to doing it with a wooden board with everyone else sat around watching I was the only one who couldn’t! GRRRR! I wanted to take home a bit of broken plank too! Not happy.
*interjection* ARGH! Nicky just emerged from the sofa and has shuffled off to the bathroom, arms outstretched, muttering “it lives!”
And speaking of Nicky, I got back from TKD last night to find her merrily chatting online with Vile. They made me close the chat window and relaunch when I wanted to say hi, something is afoot! *concerned* I did my best to ply Nicky with alcohol last night and make her spill, but to no avail. Hurumph.
Spent the evening gorging on a Veggie and a Sicilian Garlic Mushroom pizza, and challenged Nicky to game of Scrabble. She whupped me dammit! Score: 146 – 196. Grrrr. I blame the lack of vowel movement. She was just lucky!
Off into town in a bit once I manage to be clean and dressed and perky. Am giving Nicky a head start on the getting up front, hopefully she’ll end up waiting for me for once! But I doubt it.
With luck on our side, today is the day for much Crimble shopping to be done. I had a couple of brainwaves for some (hopefully) most cunning gift ideas this weekend and now need to follow through and pray that my bank balance can cope. Might also have to go and take another look at a silly hat I took a rather bizarre liking to on Saturday. It’s kinda cute! All woolly and knitted and pink and stripey with little bits to cover your ears and, (dare I say it?) little tassles attached. Awwwwwww.
A cunning plan has been half-formulated by Nicky and myself. Neither of us can afford to buy ourselves anything at the moment and she has her eye on some magic pants, but… we thought if we bought the items for each other as Crimble pressies we both win. YAY! And! I get to have cosy ears! Wheeeeee!
Also on a mission to find advent calendars so that the days til Vile (and Dom) can be marked by chocolate. Oh yes!
Oh, and I handed in my month’s notice on the flat yesterday. Seems 2003 will certainly kick me off on a new path right from the start. Eeeps.
