Orange Frappe Mocha Chino!

Ominous1

908 views

Apologies for my absence (Napoleon, don't be jealous because I've been chatting online with babes all day). My exams have been hectic - as usual - but I did out-study a fair few Asians, dreamt about brains, screamed profanities at the boisterous bastards beside me (that might have never happened) and ate so much junkfood that I lost two kilos. I'd say that counts as one stellar study period.

So I must admit, today has been a darn tootin' fine day. I'm now on summer holidays (just thought I'd remind you of that, again)!! Summer in the city, means cleavage cleavage cleavage. But seriously, the sun, the beach, the babes, the thousands of old tanned men in budgie-smugglers (ok, maybe not that last one) are all things I'm looking forward to right now. Except that whole, I have to work to eat thing. What a waste of precious holiday time. Otherwise, my summer holiday mantra is: "I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is."

On the more serious side we have to find a house in a "non-bogan suburb" (as specified by housemate #4's girlfriend), so I'm going to spend some time trawling through the cluttered, miasmic sea of real-estate websites. We have about a month and a half till we have to leave Shangri-La, and we're thinking either a town house or an apartment of sorts. I must confess it has always been my dream to live in a loft. I feel that it would increase my indie street cred exponentially and my life would become like a 90's sitcom. Bonus! So definitely on the look-out for a loft that has giant windows, a graffitied roller door and is in a building full of eccentric neighbours.

Hmm, I have a good-bye nun-boss gathering to attend tomorrow. Where I should score some more work. I will soon be fabulously rich. I've decided it will happen, just envision, accept, and the universe delivers right?

In sum: I will be rich, I will live in a loft and I'll discover the meaning of life. All this summer.

(*hears squeaking bed*, oh yeah, my skin is doing well. Just have the few pimples on my temples that are fading. The seb derm is pretty much goneskies, and I've kept up the regime.)

Alright, one last quote for the road: "I wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot." - Hansel

Woohooo.....its like Christmas....two blogs from bloggy friends in one evening!

Why you want to move into a non bogan suburb? Are you for real? What a sterile thought..... And as a bloggy mother figure (oh who am I kidding...as if!!!), lofts mean open plan. There is no hiding the mess! Dirty skirtings would be the least of your worries...

And how do you eat junkfood and lose 2 kilos? You must share your secret...I NEED TO KNOW!

I was hoping that would be a Zoolander quote!

You ate junk food and lost weight?! I officially hate you now. Every girl who reads this will be out to get you, you know. And not in the good "cleavage, cleavage, cleavage" way either. In the "that guy stole my Kit Kat and still lost weight, I'm about to tear out his weave" way.

Congratulations on being on break! Now it's my turn to be jealous, dammit. I'm not an ambi-turner. Especially about the thousands of old tanned men in budgie-smugglers; where can I get me some of that?!

I love the loft idea. You is talking loco and I like it! You should definitely do that. Cleavage would be throwing itself at you if you lived in a loft. With your mo. Oh, wait...

Lol, let me tell you about our suburb. We have two dealers down the road. Our elderly neighbours were fire-bombed, I mean their house seriously burnt down; our hedges nearly caught on fire. We also have a crazy cat lady that lives across the road and her WoW playing grown-man grandson (son?) who shouts random abuse at her.

I only lost weight because I was eating less than my usual work-out protein shakes + 3 decent sized meals per day + snacks. In fact, if you replace your regular meals with a packet of potato chips (medium sized) then you too can lose weight.

Don't worry, I plan on hiring people to clean said loft. All this and more, when the universe produces some major cash from my diet and philosophy ebook.

He's right you know! :P If I miss a meal by even a few minutes, I start to lose weight. So then I think, 'OK, a packet of crisps or a bar of chocolate will keep me going a while', and that also results in weight loss. It's like double dosage or something. It's not all it's cracked up to be you know, unless you're into the anorexic catwalk model look... :rolleyes:

Lol, yes Paul I'm with you there. Although my metabolism has slowed a little in my twenties, I used to be a size 28, and I'm 6'3, so you can imagine how skinny and lanky I was. I'm still that, but I'm trying to gain some weight (muscle) but it requires so much eating, and protein, and actual effort. So who knows if that'll happen.

I'd probably find it easier to shrink in height than I would to gain weight so I reckon you did well there! wink.png

I'm a 28. Nothing ever fits me right as I have to get a 30 otherwise the leg would be too short. Glad I'm not as tall otherwise I'd vanish. At 5'6 (I think) and 51kg, I'm thin enough as it is. I don't like my body shape at all to be honest, I look like a little kid and everyone always comments on it and asks if I'm ill or something. I always think, 'Well, if I am, then I've been constantly ill since I was about 10!' eusa_doh.gif I wouldn't mind bulking up but I'm pretty sure that if I started working out, I'd only end up looking even thinner, so I'm just kind of stuck with this starved, drug-addled look... lol.gif

Ba ha ha, the starved drug-addled look. I much prefer to think of it as the rockstar look. Yeah, getting jeans that fit my legs and waist is always interesting, like getting a shirt that is long enough in the arms without having the gigantic shoulders of an XXL. lol. In fact I don't even fit in to the clothes of sweat-shop labour clothes shops (they tend to have asian-style fits) and don't even talk to me about that time I was in Malaysia trying to find a t-shirt that fits me or Thailand trying to find shoes over size 10. ha ha, so I feel your pain!

We should start a support group: the misunderstood, strangely proportioned males who want to find clothes that fit.

The MSPMWWTFCTF? Hmmm... safe to say that we need to have a think about this name.

If you do get rich this summer, use some of the money to find someone who is good at marketing and branding, yeah? :lol:

Listen here you two, I think you need to start keeping your "oh I just miss 1 meal and lose weight" and "I've been eating chips and chocolate all week and have dropped 2 kilos" to yourself. Its not nice, and its not gentlemanly.

Hmm...and now I think its tea and a biscuit (or 3) time.

Resery! You can help us! We need a name that gives a better acronym than MSPMWWTFCTF! You're clever and funny and smart and funny and clever (is this working?), surely you could find us a better name for our support group! :D

Don't be angry at us, it's not our fault we're wasting away. If we carry on eating, we might soon disappear, and you'd regret telling us off.

Besides, I haven't actually eaten any chocolate this week and we never claimed to be gentlemen so... :P
