Dear Just Dance 4 and GirlGuides

Thank you so much for hosting a fabulous event for us girls on Wednesday night. Fun was had by all and I think it’s safe to say the game in general is a hit.

The function was at Slow in the City in Sandton…it was my first time there, and I think it’s a really nice venue for an event. The ladies had 2 XBox Kinects set up and ready for us to to get our dance on with Just Dance 4. The general idea was that for every time you danced, your name would be entered into a draw for a fabulous Marc Jacobs goodie bag. While I did not win (Jessica was the lucky winner of this one), I had so much fun and I ended up kicking ass in all but 1 of the group dances I took part in.

The girls also provided as with a really stunning goodie bag. It contained a copy of the game (especially for your gaming console, as the game is compatible with Wii, Xbox and PS3), a very funky 80’s style aerobics t-shirt, 3 perfume samples, a mini stylus, a keyring, a funky pair of sunglasses AND some wireless wipes. The snacks were divine, the wine was yummy, the dancing exercise a blast and the company, as always, fantastic:)

These came off very early on in the evening……

Love Love Love the shirts we got!!!!

Also, just so you know, I think I might be addicted to your little game O_o. Today I went out to buy the Move for my PS3 so that I would be able to play….guess what I’ll be doing for most of the weekend:)

Thank you so much for a fantastic and really fun event!



Dear ghost of weekend past

Wow…you really snuck up on all of us, and then proceeded to leave us with our heads spinning.  You were in and out so fast I barely had time to enjoy your stay *sulk*.

I’ve been relatively unsocial this weekend to be honest.  I just haven’t been up to it, for various reasons.  But I did get a lot done and I suppose that’s what weekends are for.  I even managed to spend quite a bit of time just relaxing and being lazy…this made me happy:)

Friday evening and the whole of saturday was spent at home.  I was tired, stressed and in desperate need of some me time.  It’s been a rough week work wise, and in between everything else I’ve been trying to sort out things that need to be done before i leave in 2 weeks. EEEEEEEEK!!!! *insert mini super excited super stressed freak out here*.  Also, someone who is really close to me has been in hospital the entire week.  Being worried about someone important really does drain you…emotionally and otherwise.  He’s doing alright and showing great improvement, but he’s still in hospital, and to be honest, until he’s home safe my worry levels will remain high.  It’s just the way I am.

Today didn’t go quite as planned, but it ended up being a really fun day:)  I went shopping for the new laptop.  You know, just comparing specs and prices and measuring up what I really want against what I really need.  It’s quite a labour intensive process I assure you.  But by the end of the week I need to make a decision and I won’t be happy with my choice unless I KNOW I did all my homework.

Laptopshopping was supposed to followed by a late lunch with a couple of friends, but due to unforeseen circumstances this was cancelled at the VERY last-minute.  Which allowed me to attend the GirlGuides event.  Much fun was had with the girls where conversation circled around gadgets, little bits of admin, new jobs, gadgets, boys, reviews, gadgets and more gadgets.  Altogether a really fun day:)

Sadly my sunday evening is filled with work.  We’re starting a brand new client tomorrow and there is a lot of planning and documentation involved with starting a new electronic file.  My last bit of overtime for the new job I guess:)

So weekend, please tell the week ahead that I hope to have a good one.  It’s going to be an emotional one I’m sure.  It’s my last week at my present employer.  I’ve been there for 6 years…that is a LOT of memories and a lot of blood, sweat, tears and happy times.  Please let my friend improve swiftly, please let the fact that I have to trek to Pretoria every day this week not affect my mood, please let me find the laptop I want..and most of all..please fill my week with happiness, laughter and moments shared with the people I care about.
