Grrrrâ€¦so, I`m having my self-imposed weekend at home, right? And this definitely includes a night in. No gallivanting to Barmooda. No sipping cocktails at Mbar or Baraza. Not even a jaunt to visit the extended urban family (wherever the may find themselves). I`m feeling pretty cool at the moment, mucking around the house, watching an odd movie here, re-watching Grey`s Anatomy and Entourage there. Oh, and reading back-issues of Mad Magazines that I have just not been able to get to. I`m feeling relaxed and I don`t have a care in the world (literally, after my series of unfortunate epiphany`s in the last week, it`s a kinda cool spaced out feeling). It`s bloody cold though. The sliding door leading out to the garden is open and the dogs are driving my insane. I`m typing and shouting, get off the couch at the same time. It`s raining outside and they`ve discovered a new way of tormenting me by running out into the rain (wheeeee), running back inside, doing a quick frenzied circuit of all the rooms, careen back into the living area and Splat onto my couch (miscellaneous scattering of fur cushions and chenille throws).
Anywayâ€¦the picture of perfect domestic bliss and enhance your karma-esque joy is interrupted by my phone (I`m bringing sexy back, yeahâ€¦). Krisma Boet (BEAN) is on the phoneâ€¦
KB: Hey Sissy, how you doin?
Me: Cool, you?
KB: Me? Just dandyâ€¦sitting in the Jacuzzi
KB: You know, that thing we have outside. It`s got water in it. Not to be mistaken by the pool. The pool is cold. We`re in lovely hot warm water. We could jump in the pool. But we`re sloths.
ME: You bastard.
KB: Yeahâ€¦.I know. How`s the weather there *I can hear the smirk over the phone*
ME: Wonderful. Sunny. Hot. In fact, I`m going to put some water in the bath, some fabbie salts and thenâ€¦and thenâ€¦I`m going to get into it. Without my cozzie. Because, seeâ€¦it`s likeâ€¦Umâ€¦Jacuzzi Skinny-Dipping.
KB: Except it`s your bath. So, you`d just be getting into the bath. Sad. By the wayâ€¦it sounds like rain on your end.
ME: *sullen silence
KB: Mmmmmâ€¦Enjoy your Jacuzzi Skinny-Dipping.
I so need to get a Jacuzziâ€¦ Can you even begin to imagine. Cold rain falling on your head, back and shoulders and you`re totally immersed in gorgeous hot water.
Sometimes I think my brother lives like a king. Sometimes I think he tells me he lives like a king just to torment me. I rather suspect the latter.
FPU`s Birthday today. Happy Birthday Momâ€¦rock on!!
