As you all know or maybe you dont but I turned 23 on Saturday and it was great. So this is the mandatory post birthday blog where I tell you what I did and what not.... oh Capital! I can see the excitment on your faces now accompanied by a small trickle of drool down the left side of your mouth as the first snore resonates of the walls of your current domicile. So lets get this show on the road.
I've never placed great significance on a birthday, I mean its merely another day closer to the end. So I hardly make a fuss about my birthday but its nice to know that people do care enough to let you know that they are thinking of you even if its just for that day or due to a forgotten reminder on their phones, and for me the thought behind it is what counts, not the gifts. Needless to say I did get chocolates and Im awaiting another gift from someone who shall not be mentioned :) but is like the sweetest ever :)
So I got a phone call before midnight (super sweet thanks A.L for being the first well wisher) and the messages by people trying to be the first to wish me happy birthday which always makes one feel extremely special. I even got well wishes on my chat box... how awesome is that.... :) Thanks guys. I dont have like hordes of friends but the friends I have are my friends for life and I would not swop them for all the gold in fort knox. So I needed a laugh so went to see MR BEAN lol.... Yes i know same old same old but its like nostalgic funny so I enjoyed that. Then one of the two highlights of my night was the Jhb Blog meeting, even though not everyone was present and apparently me bringing non bloggers along was abit of an issue (dont ask me I have no idea way) it was awesome. I could only stay for about and hour due to a previous engagement but I got to meet Fatima (The Sweet), Ruby (RUBY RUBY RUBY!) and BiBi-aisha (the RED) for the first time which was amazing so thanks alot ladies it was a pleasure. Whilst I was there I also got a speak to the one the only my greatest fan boy MJ!!!! Thanks man was really cool and you better come to Jhb.
So then the greek part of my evening started. I was wisked away to sandton to have supper at pappas (a greek resturant) with my friends and Bibi Aisha who decided to crash my party :p (you more than welcome to crash the next one). The food was ok, usually its brilliant but as usual the entertainment was awesome. They have a belly dancer (and this time she had these torches of fire) and this like traditional greek dancing and they encourage patron participation so it has a great atmosphere. I skipped dancing with the belly dancer (I had enough of that in egypt) so very uncharacteristically since it was my birthday I joined in the greek dancing! No skill was involved it was basically moving around in a circle arms on shoulders and doing a version of the can-can but it was so much fun, still cant believe I did It but I guess you surprise yourself everyday.
And that was it! pretty normal but I spent it with new friends from the blogosphere and old friends and that was the main thing and I wouldnt change it for anything. So thanks To the bloggers who i met and who wished me well on my blog (If im in Durbs I will definately check you guys out... I promise I dont bite anymore) and to my friends, you made my night a Special one.
Now im going to cry ..................BOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO hehehehehehehe NOT!!!
