10 things I learnt this weekend

1. Vodka, water, lemon and lime is my new favourite drink
2. Drinking too much may cause me to jump up and down, while saying "Byeeee Denzzzzzel" when I spot Denzel Washington leaving the bar I am at *winks*
3. Often celebrities look more ordinary in real life
4. Blakes Bar is a nice place to have drinks in Cape Town
5. I am very forgetful lately -I need to make bigger notes and actually read them
6.  Life is too short to not wear all your "fancy" jewellery more often
7. Though I really want a Kindle, I doubt I could ever stop browsing around book shops (especially second hand book shops)
8. It's super easy to get addicted to American Idols
9. Wearing The Boyfs t-shirts around the house makes me feel smaller (love it)
10.  This is so true: ."...Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can't build on it; it is good only for wallowing in." -Katherine Mansfield

What have you learnt lately?

* I think photo is from here


  1. Cool celeb spotting :P i love wearing mikes clothes but he doesnt love me wearing them :P hehe

  2. I learnt that Mpumalanga is actually one of South Africa's jewels! But that no one goes there because it doesn't have a sea.

    I learnt that I love the bushveld more than anything. And that I would give up the city any day.

    And that its perfectly normal for some people in the blogosphere to post about their periods. Saw this after stumbling across someone's blog. Can't remember which, but I find it weird.

  3. I feel the same about Kindles vs real books.

  4. I've learnt that setting my alarm clock for 6am means I will only be getting out of bed at 6.30 (I lie, 6.40)

    I've learnt that watching the crime channel and loving it, as opposed to being disturbed, makes me weird[er]

    I've learnt that even if I block my nose while drinking Cookies & Cream whey protein shakes, they still taste like fried egg. *vomit*

  5. #6 is a very valuable piece of advice, learnt it the hard way when all my 'fancy' jewellery was stolen recently in a burglary - should've been wearing it...

  6. Learnt this weekend? My stalking skills suck. I didn't even the boy had disappeared.

  7. Ha, hysterical. Might need to try that drink! I've been into vodka, soda, splash of grapefruit and lots of limes.

  8. I always love your lists :)

    I learnt (well, was reminded) that the pizza & dvd tradition is a good way to end a lovely weekend... and ward off those 'Monday-approaching' blues.
