My flatmate calls it a small case of spontaneous internal combustion

August 12, 2008 at 8:35 am 24 comments

You know its going to be a bad day when:

  • your alarm only goes off at 7:35am
  • the shower switches from ice cold freeze-motherbitch to fuck-off hot
  • you bang your head on the wall when the soap slips out your hand
  • you run out of shampoo half way through washing your hair
  • you forget its Gladys day and nearly die when the old sweetheart pops up out of nowhere to say hi while you’re drinking milk from the bottle behind the fridge door
  • you leave your house keys three floors up and only realize it once you are now in the basement, in the car waiting for the gate to open.  Obviously without the remote it won’t, but now you’re stuck in the undercover parking and can’t get back up the elevator without the magnetic strip on the house keys!
  • Gladys’ telephone has automagically deleted itself and you can’t get hold of Cath to ask her to send it.  Finally the old dear hears your shouts from down below and peeps her head over the balcony “Haibo Cheena, what you done now?”.
  • Eventually, out of the gate, on the road, stuck in a million car pile up of traffic down Moore Road.  If you don’t know Durban, you wouldn’t know its the longest and busiest road around for a while.  Joy.
  • Every robot is red, naturally.
  • Thinking to myself:  need to tweet my rage! And yes, you guessed it, the phone won’t cooperate.
  • I’m at work now.  35minutes later than usual. 
  • The receptionist is off sick, guess who’s on switchboard duty? 

 

Thats right, bitches.  Kippie the Cotchmistress over here.

    LOL, I don’t know what I would do without you in my google reader, sort of reminds me that my life isn’t that bad, and that I should never stop smoking – LOL!

    I have two alarm clocks in the form of small children.

    All I need to do now is to get them to stop going off all night.

    SCG – Jeez, honey. Did it get better at least?

    6k – ah yes, how is the latest little ankle biter? I’ve been checking your blog only to be faced with the disappointment of your “lookin for photos?” blog one too many times already. 😦 I’d already mourned the end of you!

    Suetjie – I know. I hate it when people say that to me too. Cow.

    Thanks for clearing that up… 🙂

    And the Springing Bat-penis suits you. It stays.

    Cheena…haha…I love that!

    Look on the brightside…if Gladys hadn’t have been at work today nobody would have heard your shouts & you’d still be stuck down in the basement…it’s not all that bad 🙂

    KaBby – oh, the lol. COuld you imagine me for an entire day stuck in the basement? Madness. I know. It got better, kinda.

    Stef – ask Cath, Gladys is our hero for many reasons. She’s divine and honest and open and loving and her tea rocks my world.

    well, at least day’s like this can only get better right? just updated my blog – dang, finding time to write is hard! Thanks for the encouragement though.

    Ja, it’s not based on anything in particular. some of the things like going to parliament are based on truth but it’s just a good ol story. the character is unhappy. i’m sitting here in durban stoked out of my mindmeats!
