Here's the thing...

Spiders and bees are my two big bug fears. It's spring and of course the little bastards are everywhere. I've seen umpteen spiders around the house that have captured my cat's attentions. I don't even want to think how many they've eaten and then licked my hand. YUCK! As if that wasn't bad enough now bees have invaded. We rent our property so it's really not my problem to deal with. It's more an inconvenience for me than anything. Apparently, they've made a nest in the archway above my front door. But if that wasn't bad enough I guess they have made their way into the furnace. Fanfuckingtastic. I hope tomorrow they'll show up bright and early to deal with this or I'll be none too pleased. I do not need bees invading my home. On the upside because I rent - I won't be footing the bill for this. YAY!

So the guys are currently down in South America - Buenos Aries to be exact. When I was about 12 or so, my Father took my sister and me to see the musical "Evita" by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Eva Duarte Peron was the wife of the now former Presidente of Argentina. It's song "Don't cry for me Argentina" has been sung and recorded a lifetime over by various artists.

For reasons only known to The Muses and the Gods themselves I have (since John Tweeted this morning saying they were en route there) had this image of him being driven down the street, standing poked out of a moon-roof of a car, arms outstretched, 1000 watt smile slapped on his face singing "Buenos Aries" at the top his lungs. Yes okay it's sung by a woman, and it's a little show boaty, over the top, Neil Patrick Harris-esque but hey - this is my imagination we're talking about. The thing of it is... the lyrics even fit:

"What's new Buenos Aries?
 I'm new! I wanna say I"m just a little stuck on you!
You'll be on me too"

"I get out here Buenos Aries!
 Get this! Look at me dressed up somewhere to go,

We'll put on a show!"

And yes, I know it's ridiculous mind numbing randomness- but hey - it's okay! My entries have been really huffy lately. It's time for some fun and randomness! Oh! And maybe a confession...are you ready??? Here goes....

I've always been a geek. There, I've said it. It's okay, I'm alright with it. I'm a chic geek, and I'm okay with that. I like music, food, fashion, art, shoes and the like but I also like to geek out with my computer games. I used to play just console games before we had a computer. I liked the original Nintendo. The button-ry was simple: up, down, right, left, start and pause. No problem.

But now you can practically spell out the alphabet. ABCD...X? REALLY? Unless it's going to give me a mani/pedi, order me a pizza, and fetch me a drink from the kitchen I don't think I need that many buttons. There are so many buttons they've moved on to shapes. The triangle button summons a foot masseuse named Sven, and I'm pretty sure the circle button will sell my soul guessed it...MORE BUTTONS! Isn't life complicated enough? Do I really need a mini joystick steering wheel thing that vibrates? Let me answer for you....NO. I do not.

I think this is why my favourite mode of gaming is now computer gaming. My computer gaming passion actually started from one of my friends who I would consider one of the least likely people to EVER be a gamer. She introduced me to a game when we were in grade nine called "Below the Root", and the rest as they say is history. 

BTW Rach...have you seen my other shuba? The one I have is torn.

One Last Glimpse,



  1. baaahhahahahahahahahahahaa OMG OMG OMG Only you could go from bees in the furnace to John doing Glee acts to Below the Root. LOL

  2. Please tell me you're not really killing bees. Tell me they're wasps or hornets. Have an apiarist remove the bees to a hive, if that is what they are!

    Oh, and my triangle button overrides your triangle button ... Sven's on his way here right now.
