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.
- Cut the lemons or limes into several pieces.
- Put the lemons or limes into a cocktail shaker.
- Add sugar and mash it into the lemon wedges making a little juice.
- Fill the glass with ice. Crushed ice melts faster and dilutes the drink more quickly than cubes.
- 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!
