We have just started Spring here in the land down under and this week in particular has been a scorcher! Also this year I have been getting more into cooking and such. I mean I’ve always been able to cook to survive type thing, but I am not a big lover of the kitchen!
However this year when I have gotten something stuck in my head to make, it usually has been staying in there until I either focus on something else (which guaranteed for me is pretty easy), or I make it. Since it’s been SO hot this weekend, I have literally been draining, I decided to make something I can never seem to find in my local supermarkets…Pink Lemonade
This was probably the best recipe that I found and it was really simple to make as well….Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade…The only thing is I used mostly lemon juice from a bottle (bad me, I know)…Otherwise be prepared to use and squeeze a LOT of lemons…I am not exaggerating, I mean a lot! It was really sweet and quite refreshing though, I highly recommend it
Watch this space for more cool recipes…I really want to make a “Jelly Cake” next =D I think that would fun for Spring!
SO it’s a Saturday Night here and it’s all warm and uncomfortable “Down Under”. Been trying to think of what to do, since I have the house to myself tonight.
The reason I am writing this Blog is because thinking of what has happened this week, I’ve never felt more alone and felt more like I wish that I had at least one person who lived in my country, actually would talk to me about my problems and someone I could actually rely on. Then I started to feel really down about myself.
Then I thought to myself, I shouldn’t feel sad! There is so much that I can be grateful about and SO WHAT if I’m not going out this weekend. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, I even looked up some online dating sites. I’ve made a promise to myself. If I don’t meet someone between now and the New Years. As soon as the New Year happens I will be registering onto one of those dating sites. I’ve already seen one or two guys I actually liked the look of.
Here are some rules for surviving a single night by yourself:
Do NOT watch videos, listen to songs and watch tv shows that say how horrible being single is.
Buy yourself that food you can eat when no one else is around
Drink all the bad things, but do not get drunk!
Dress in the most comfortable clothing you own.
Dance like no one is watching and turn that music up LOUD!
Stay OFF of Facebook
Turn off your phone (or at least keep it on vibrate).
I promise you, you follow those steps and you will have a very successful single night in =D In fact you may never want to go out ever again!

Being a lover of the books and all of the reading that I do, a lot of the time while reading I will have form of liquid in a cup next to me. Sometimes, honestly, I forget to finish off the drink that I have.
Any-ways I found this list of amazing cups and mugs with literary quotes and funny book and reading sayings. I want them all…I am not kidding! I especially love the “William Shakespeare insults cups”. I think that not only are these cups awesome but they would make for an amazing Christmas gift! I’ve got my eye on a few for people I know.
I am so happy that this Fridays edition lands on one of my favourite holidays! =D I’m not an American or Mexican, I am Australian so it’s not a “traditional” holiday here, but it grows every single year and I have never been happier about it. In fact this Friday night I am getting together with a few friends, dressing up and going out for the night. Guess who I am going as?…One Clue!
I haven’t got the full costume on here, but I will take an update on the full costume. I just don’t really have the time to do the full outfit today…but I promise a full picture! The dress is from Black Milk Clothing. I am now really in love with this store, I already bought a TARDIS and they have a new “wrapped” collection coming out for Christmas!
I’m just putting this video here to get myself in the mood…I hope it works for you too! =D
I am sitting here with my best friend in the whole wide world…Jim Beam…He’s a great guy, reliable, makes me happy, makes me feel relaxed and doesn’t judge me when I get up to do my drunken dance to some truly horrible music (well at the moment I am watching “The Mummy”…may not be the best movie when you are by yourself…in the dark).
Trying so hard to distract myself, maybe Jim isn’t being a very good friend too me, all I can think about is you again…Like my other post ““It’s like Radar” that one stupid text! I’m surprised with how well I am coping, but I wish he hadn’t sent it. I literally had been thinking that day how I hadn’t thought of him all day and then two hours later…
How do other people distract themselves during times like these? I have actually never had an ex reach out and apologise to me before. Luckily for me I have a lot of homework that needs to be done, so I have been distracting myself with that and now I am watching movies…and everyone should watch this live feed…Pete’s Pond…You’ll even see me on there most days making comments, sometimes I’ll have it on in the background while I do homework…Elephants, Lions and Ostriches…Oh my!
Tonight is my first girls night out since my break up and I am ready for it! The break was what…Month and a half? Two weeks since we stopped being friends and I need a cute guy (or two) to get a bit flirty with, not dirty with…Just flirty. I might even have a glass of champagne first before I head out…Crazy! I’m a bit of “light weight” so I don’t drink when I go out and it’s not at a friends house…or mine own!lol
In all honesty I am really nervous about this night. You see, I had this really odd plan on staying with my ex for the rest of my life, definitely the rest of this year…at least. There is just something different about “A Girls Night out” that just feels automatically different from going out with a mixed sex group of people. There’s is honestly no one else I want to be on the planet with than my ex, but a girl has to move on and although I don’t expect to find the love of my night tonight. I do want to get a little flirty, not flirty dirty, just flirty =D…I’m not ready for dirty yet ~.^

So this was an weekend where moi may have had a little much to drink and definitely paid the price for it. Even though I don’t live in America I actually enjoy watching the Superbowl…I do enjoy many sports (except cricket or tennis…Just never got into them). So I decided to go with a character this week that is well-known for the drink.
There were two characters that I just love and pretty well-known for their drinking attributes and I couldn’t pick so I just decided to go with both of them.
Probably one of the most beloved (but lets face it…alcoholic) characters of all time…
“The Simpsons” were first introduced on the ‘Tracey Ullman Show”on April 19, 1987 as a bunch of ‘shorts’. “The Simpsons” is both the longest running animation show and also the longest running sitcom and is well considered to be one of the greatest shows of all time.
My second favourite drinking buddy is Captain Jack Sparrow!
Not only is he utterly gorgeous and funny but is another character that is well known for drinking…Mainly Rum! PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE…There is going to be a 5th Pirates of the Caribbean! The Pirates of the Caribbean is based on a Disney theme park ride of the same name. The films first film and first release was in 2003. The Pirates sequel movie: ‘Dead Man’s Chest” was the most successful film in 2006.
“But why is the Rum gone?!”
