Defrosting doves and such

Thursday, April 28, 2011

This morning I overslept completely, woke up at 07:40.
I have to be at work by 08:00.

But I found something to blame.
Yesterday's Lusito Land. It's a Portuguese fest, held in Wemmerpan. And it involved an alcoholic beverage called Caipirinha (maybe that's why I'm sitting with this headache now), a couple of beers, candyfloss, my parents, prawns, espatadas, Portuguese chicken and those typical carnival type rides that had me screaming my head off! So that's reason numero uno.
Just quietly crapping myself...
And eating candyfloss in a sexy way

The second scapegoat is BridalPlasty. It comes up late at night, and I wouldn't miss it for the world! Next week is the finale, finally! And can I just add, I hate Jenessa. Dislike is too nice a word.

And the defrosting doves you ask? This morning, as I was driving into our work's parking lot, I saw this big bundle of something next to the entrance. After parking, and closer inspection, I found a half-frozen dove, with an injured wing. SO, I tucked him under my hoodie and brought him into the office. He is still residing here, in a box with shredded newspaper, and will be taken to a bird rehabilitation centre tonight by one of my colleagues.

But then the beau tells me that I should watch out for lice and fleas. And I can't stop itching or scratching. I dislike my brain right now.

Oh, and in case you are curious about a Caipirinha, here's a recipe for you to try at home.

You will need:
  • 1 oz (30 mL) cachaça, vodka, or wine
  • 2 lemon or lime wedges (from a ripe fruit of medium size)
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 2 teaspoons (8 grams) sugar.
  1. Cut the lemons or limes into several pieces.
  2. Put the lemons or limes into a cocktail shaker.
  3. Add sugar and mash it into the lemon wedges making a little juice.
  4. Fill the glass with ice. Crushed ice melts faster and dilutes the drink more quickly than cubes. 
  5. Add the cachaça, vodka, or wine, mix well, and serve.

Et Voila! You have a drink that tastes like cooldrink, but isn't.

Update: the dove was picked up during our lunch hour by my colleagues beau and he took her (yes, it's a girl!) to a rehab centre in Springs. Apparently it was bitten by a dog, but will survive. Happy days!

Aaah, my friend! Ek lief jou so in die verte! Ek het nie foto's geneem van die dier nie, wou dit nie verder ontstel nie, maar dit was baie oulik onder al sy koerant.

En shame, die dingetjie was so dors! Ons het haar water en suiker gegee, amper tien teelepels opgesuip!
