I hate Limbo, she’s such a silly bimbo…

This one is especially for you Tanie Poo!

Now the very first job I ever had was running a little flight school at my mom’s company. I worked there for three and half years. It was a boring job but the people were amazing. When the boss was away we used to fool around. Stephen (one of the aircraft salesmen who I also went to school with), Tania (my moms best friend), & I used to get up to all sorts of nonsense. Once I walked into my office and it was a spider web of selotape, I can’t remember the details but somehow Stephen broke the window. I had to take the blame for it cause my mom is the director and I wouldn’t get into to much trouble. He was a shit. He used to chase Tania and me around the office whipping us with dish towels. Tania’s defense mechanism was air freshener! I used to come home with bruises all over my body and Gary would look at me funny and be like “Are you having an affair?” and I’m like “NO! Flippen Stephen tied me to chair today, pushed me around the office and whipped me with a dish towel! With Tania trying, in vain, to protect me with the air freshener! But it was so much fun.”

So anyway, this morning I called my mom to get a telephone number and Tania answered. She’s all like, “SO WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO UPDATE?”

I am sorry my faithful seven followers, I’m having a bit of a block at the moment. I am poring all of my energy into a character illustration. It’s the first time I’m doing something like this and it’s a huge learning curve for me. I haven’t really had any formal training in design and am mostly self-taught. It’s taking a lot of my free time because I work an eight to fiver. My creative blogger brain is feeling really strung out and guilty!

There is one post that I have finished writing but I am just waiting for pictures. I also thought I should do a few short posts before I post it because it’s really long. I just can’t find anything that’s particularly inspiring at the mo. Sad I know. But creativity comes in waves for me. All my other projects are sitting in Limbo. I have a drawing to finish, the fore mentioned post, my vintage bicycle and the “shhhh it’s a secret” project. All need creativity which I am lacking in truck loads!

So here’s what I’m gonna do to sate your thirsty eyes. Being Brazen, a blog I follow (especially cause she loves shoes as much as I do) does these “it’s for you…” posts, where she posts questions with her answers and then readers copy the questions and give their answers in the comment section. I think it’s awesome. I’m gonna call my version:

You ask strange questions, yes you do…

1. If you could be anything in the whole world (mythical creatures included of course), what would you be?
Without a doubt a lady of la mer, in other words a mermaid.
Or I wouldn’t mind being a Stephenie Meyer Vampire. That way I could spend the rest of eternity with my love, I would have so much time to get things done and I could swim under water cause Vamp’s don’t need to breath. Yess.

2. What makes you blush?
I always blush when people compliment me on my appearance. I really hate compliments like that but I love them at the same time

3. What’s you favorite flavor cup cake?
Depends on my mood. Chocolate or Vanilla Choc Chip

4. How do you express your self creatively?
Well I have many outlets. I am teaching myself to draw.
We paint. Ky, Gaz & I put on The Shins and Ky teaches us cool techniques.
I do a lot of photo editing and print them on canvas and frame ‘em for friends and family. I dance. Not any particular genera just free styling it around my living room. Love to dance.

5. Do you have a theme song?

Hells Yeah, like a million! The one at the mo goes a like this.
Excuse me for staring
Your G-string is tearing
Your boobs are humongous
They’re growing like fungus
So kiss me
Kiss me
Strawberry lips!

6. What are you reading at the moment?
I am on the fifth Harry Potter – “The order of the Phoenix” I started it yesterday. I must say that I was battling a bit in the beginning with the first two books because they are “young”. The third on, “The prisoner of Azkaban” really sucked me in. It starts to get really dark from there on out.

7. What is the one song that makes you do the jumping-dance around your living room?
At the moment, I would have to say Desmond & the TuTu’s, “Pictures”. Flap that song makes my flippen feet so effing happy!

8. Where do, or what makes you feel totally at one with yourself and mother earth?
This might sound a bit, I dunno… fudged up, but when I am sitting on a beach watching and listening to the waves, it makes me feel, not only peaceful and at home, but sort of insignificant. Like no matter what is going on in my life good or bad the waves will always crash onto the beach, the fish still go about their daily business, the sun will always set and give rise to the moon. It all keeps on going without any thought or reaction to the things we go through on a day to day basis. It reminds me of what a short time we have on this beautiful planet and not to linger on negative things but to keep moving like the waves.

9. One good quality & one bad quality?
Good - I love full heartedly
Bad - I am so critical of myself and everyone in my life.

10. Tell me your big dream?
The dream is to have my own furniture/everything manufacturing company with a really pretty shop to show case and sell my stuff as well as other designers. I won’t stock just furniture but everything cool; shoes, cup cakes, linen, clothes, furniture, art…
I am a British citizen and since London is the design capital of the world I really want a shop their too. That way I can bring European design here and South African design there. Who knows maybe New York and Japan? I have such a cool name for my shop but I’m not telling till I’ve registered it, so no-one can steel it.
I want my company to embody beauty and quality of life.

You don’t have to comment but, I won’t lie, that would be amazing!
Ok So I hope your eyes are sated.
La Mer, Flow & La La La Adventurers
