or these

and napping over here

I want, no i NEED to be sipping on these:

and a bunch of these, overlooking this:

Is it too much to ask??

I dont have much of a valid reason to, but i am feeling so down lately :(

Work is a little uninspiring at the moment. It’s been a rather tough month financially. I am scraping my last pennies together for essentials like petrol. I had to dip into my savings to pay the maid yesterday. Feels like every single person in the country has been to at least one World Cup Match – even the people who don’t even like soccer… This cold miserable weather in JHB is also not helping my mood much :(



So… a month ago, Boobahsmom awarded me an award, and i am only getting a chance to respond now :/

better late than never, hey?


Rule number 1: Acknowledge the award giver

Rule number 2: State 7 previously unknown/random facts about yourself.

Rule number 3 states that I need to pass on this award to 10 bloggers I’ve recently discovered, who I have found to be worthy of being called a Versatile Blogger.

ok, so, firstly – Thanks to Boobahsmom for the award :D

Next, 7 unknown facts about myself… tricky since i do a lotta random posts here. Let’s try:

1 – i cut my french toast in a very particular way. Corners first, making a smaller diamond shape, then cut off each corner (opposites first), making a smaller square, and so on… which leaves a small square at the end, which i cut into two triangles.

2 – i like my french toast savoury. With melted cheese and tomato sauce on. This grosses some people out, including Peter. He thinks tomato sauce on bread is for poor people, or something.

3 – when i have a cool drink with a straw, i don’t like it when the straw “looks at me” (ie points directly at me)… really bugs me

4- I normally spit in the sink everytime i wash my hands. This sounds grosser than it is.

5 – i like taking close-up photos of flowers

6 – my first dog’s name was Scampie

7 – I took German as a third language at high school

part 3 – who do i nominate… well, i nominate YOU!! please leave me a comment with your blog and consider yourself nominated!

So… if u follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that i am a bit of a Brazil Fangirl when it comes to the Soccer World Cup.

Just the other day, my brother asked me why I support them (I told him it’s coz my family is Brazilian and I was born there – lol!) anyway… maybe you are also wondering why I’m such a fangirl.

Let me first say that I am not a soccer fan and I dont know much about the sport!! But i do love me some Brazilian Soccer!!

It is not necessarily that they are a brilliant team. I started supporting them in the last last world cup, which was in 2002. I didn’t know any rules, I didn’t know the off-side rule. I knew nothing.

I decided to support them, because i loved the Ronaldo/Ronaldinho combination. And by Ronaldo, i DO NOT mean that ugly chop who plays for Portugal!! I mean the ORIGINAL ronaldo! (who is now fat and lazy and retired – lol) Those 2 were AWESOME! They were so captivating, I couldn’t stop watching them!! Loved it! They were totally unstoppable. From 2002 and i have adored Ronaldinho!! Always smiling, always scoring!

between him and his buddy Ronaldo, the team was ALWAYS smiling! and it seemed to rub off on everyone else… such a friendly bunch!

Then, the captain, back in 2002, Cafu – wow – i just loved him!! So tall, so strong, so regal! He always looked so calm and collected. really friendly and approachable. He just looks like a great guy! Someone you’d wanna hang out with. Also, always smiling. So humble. So friendly to the opposition team. Always smiles, handshakes and stuff. He just looks like and inspiring person – not only in soccer, in life.

Before all the matches i’ve watched (2002/2006/2010), in that tunnel thingy before the players walk out onto the field, these guys in the yellow shirts are always smiling and chatting to their oponents or the little kids who walk on the field with them. So friendly and down to earth. They are HUGE HUGE STARS, yet so humble.

They always all sing their national anthem with such passion and pride.

When there is a foul on the field, they help up the opponent (no matter whose fault it was) and give then a smile or handshake or whatever. They never argue with the ref. If they get a yellow/red card, they just accept it… no arrogance about it.

When there is a goal (which there ALWAYS is) they always look up to the heavens and do a little religious “whaddup” thing. I like it. I do.

The current goal keeper, Julio Cesar is awesome. Also a strong type, like Cafu. Looks like a great guy. He looks funny too. I wanna be his friend.

Unfortuantely, the Ronaldo/Ronaldinho combination is no longer around :( but my new favourite little dude is Robinho… he is just the cutest little thing i’ve seen! and he plays AWESOME soccer! love all that fancy footwork and stuff! He is also very humble and does the religious whaddup thing.

Hell, even their current coach, Dunga, looks like a lekker guy. Not like a lot of these fancy famous coaches who look like snobs. (ok, not the best pic of him! lol)

So… that is why i love brazil and i am a fan girl and i always will be…

As long as brazil is: Smiley, friendly, humble, skilled, etc i will be their fan. Til the end.

Go Brazil!!
