Drifting

•September 29, 2008 • 2 Comments

The past couple of months I have been spending a lot of time at the Rock race track in Benoni where South-african drifting is finally coming out of its teething stages and becoming a serious crowd drawer.

A very good friend of mine is taking part in the two Big Tournaments (“The Rock drift challenge” and the Speed and Sound sanctioned “National Drift Challenge”) I really am very proud of him.

The video above is of him drifting his SS against a sponsored car. The 200sx belonging to bruno has a speed and sound yokohona sponsor which means his rubber needs are taken care of. In this sport this means a lot as the guys can rip up neumoris sets of tyres in a round like this.

The third round of “The Rock Drift Challenge” takes place on Saturday the fourth of Ocktober. If your anywhere in the east rand come and have a look.

The Lee List

•September 8, 2008 • 2 Comments

22 years ago the first episode of the Oprah show aired.

Oprah said I don’t know if this show will be a success but it would be nice if you tune in next week.

I suppose being the most influential woman in the western world is a lofty ambition even for Oprah but low and behold today in 2008 if Oprah’s face is on it, it sells.

 

So in honor of her I have compiled the spring addition of Lee’s favorite things its called the Lee list and the great thing about the Lee list is the fact that you may actually be able to afford one or two things on this list.

 

1)Givenchy Verry Irresistible

Retails:R400-R700 (Yes I know I find if you save diligently for six months to buy it and only use one spray on special occasions its not a bad buy)

I love this perfume it is without a doubt my favorite perfume, it doesn’t smell remotely like anything you’ve ever smelt and is beyond sexy.

 

 

2)Radox Bath oil

Retails:R23

I cannot live without this stuff lately, especially in winter. It makes your bath water all nice and milky and the smell relaxes you so much that you can easily forget that you are lying in a tub of your own filth

 

3)Foschini (world wide wear) anti ass crack jeans.

Retails R…..who knows I have an account.

I got myself a pair of these last week and wore them to the drifting on Saturday. They rock! Not only are they killer sexy the waist at the back of the jean is a bit higher than the super low front. Why?

Well its to prevent Plummer cleavage when you sit down. Its soooo cool!

 

4)www.oddee.com

R (this is a web sight dumb ass)

I accidentally stumbled upon this sight one day and have read the entire content. Its filled with lists and stories about odd things around the world its an excellent boredom killer with the extra advantage of being able to stand around a braai and say “hey Boet did you know hey”. Go check it out it rules.

 

5)Global Wraps

R32 per large wrap.

I love wraps and pita meals and stuff but there is not a place in the world that can make a wrap like global wraps and they have the bestest best fillings in da world.

 

6)Nokia 6110 navi

R get a contract dude

The best thing that has happened to me since I got my car. I don’t get lost anymore and I don’t have to have 6 different gadgets that I cant work to do all my shit. Now I have GPS mobile internet an MP3 player and all sorts of other goodies on one gadget that I cant work.

 

 

7)News café rose martini’s

Retails R50-00 for a sexy waiter or whatever the menu tells you for a ikky waiter

I love these things I cannot get enough of them and as soon as Chaz teaches me the cherry stem trick it will become an important part of my vamp arson.

 

8) Durex cherry flavored lube

Retails R40something I think

Do I have to explain this to you?

 

9) My new In basket.

A few days ago I put my dustbin on my desk and marked it “IN” my work load has subsequently been depleted to near bugger all   

 

10) Flex bender

Retails R100 per bottle

Anybody will tell you I love Jack Daniels and Lime. However my hush money is not sufficient to cover a month’s supply of Jack and Lime. Flex bender however costs R70 less and tastes exactly the same

 

There you have it

Tune in next week when we will be discussing why all men are assholes

When will it all end

My Tarrot reading says that this too shall pass and things will eventually start looking up. While I trust that all this is true it doesn’t change the fact that I am still stuck in this draining period in my life where it seems that everything is hanging by a very thin, rapidly fraying string.

Business is bad! I mean really bad. High costs of living sky high interest rates and the fact that the banks keep finding ways to screw me around has made it virtually impossible to keep my head above water. I am scared shitless and at this point I am willing to take a pay cut if it means a bit of job security.

I really am incredibly hard working and ambitious but it is getting to me that I have to spend half of every week day apologising for things that are either not my fault or are completely out of my hands.

Stiffla and I are good mates again and we have started to piece together the scattered bits and pieces of a circle of friends who have taken 2 incredibly hard knocks these past few months. we are getting there but everybody is still walking on egg shells.

It is wednessdag and I am only now emerging from this very depressing weekend.

Stiffla and Will moved out this weekend and it seemed to me that Will was the only one taking it in his stride, the rest of us painted a rather odd picture as the missfits slipt into their farious coping mechanisms.
I naturally got angry and shouted at people like I do when I have to deal with any uncomfortable or uncommon situation, Stiffla, having never experienced sadness in his life before stood around staring into space like an onld bull buffalo who had been in the tall grass too long, Poffie got sad as he does and pretended the sky was falling on him, Durka remained the calm voice of reason while the Captian attached himself to a bottle of rum.

It was knock I admit it but we are coming through it. And we will be fine, all of us have to adjust to new things.
Will has gotten back together with the Piglett and he will be adjusting to being part of a whole in stead of be part of an ass holl,
Stiffla is bein a batchelor in the full sense of the world and has found that there are woman in the world who are attracted to his unpolished obnoxious veniere.
Hes getting a whole helluva lot of help fom me.
I am more than happy to give him this help because I am cowering away from that I now live alone

ALONE

ALONE

Alone without a lounge suite TV unit and fridge I might add.
My lack of household comforts is a result of another whole long storie that I dont care to relate now, the point is though that I have a bare empty lounge with nothing to sit on but a cold floor that holds nothing but the unthinkable prospects of piles.

Being single is nothing like I thought it would be. Instead of wanting male attention I find myself wanting to tell them to go get stuffed so I can spend all my money on my car.
Imagine that.

I have signed onto a few new forums joined some facebook groups and am back to reading the SNS from cover to cover. This is the real Lee I think and I like her a lot more that the mothering wifey type.

I imagine that its because I never ever had the chance to be the irresponsible youth that most people have. I was kid then I was an adult.
My money had gaps to fill from the day I left school and boosing and boosting became those far off things to me.

THAT IS GOING TO CHANGE by this time next year I intend to ahev a few SPL blings to adorn my mantel, even if I dont have a mantel.

Naturally the pics will be posted up here I am so snap happy after all.

Completely off topic.

The other thing about being single is the fact that all relationships are new now and I am a sceptic, convinced that love doesnt last longer than two weeks and that in the end no matter how hard you try your gonna hate one another and you are gonna slip into a rut.

I can handle all this but what I dread with every fibre in my being is meeting the family. It doesnt matter what way I look at this situation it sucks, its painfull because regardless of wether you like these new people you want them to like you. Its like being strapped to a dentists chair waiting for your teeth to be ripped out of your skull.

Why am I pretending like this is something you want to hear.
Well because this is my blog and I am allowed to vent! this weekend I am meeting Batmans brother (I will tell you about Batman later)

Batman is a crafty bugger. I had been aware that this visit would be taking place this weekend however it was not till after I had agreed that I found out that this visit would span over two days and a night.

Thus far I have stood in the middle of the road without being hit by anything other than a gust of wind that blew my skirt up. I have tried to chew my wrists off but found that I lack the apitite for Lee Sushi, I have gone shopping for a microwave that goes with the door open but had no luck and was caught by the jump captain when I tried to loosen the knot in the bunjee cord.

Unless I come down with the flesh eating virus, swallow my cat or fall into a pot hole before friday I am doomed to do two of the most unthinkable things, either tel Batty that i really dont want to go or chicken out and actually go. Either way I doubt that the flimsy string that holds this relationship up can shoulder the strain.

I am single now so I reserve the right to sulk and feel sorry for myself besides I havent blogged in such a long time that I doubt anybody reads this shit

 

They Kick before they die

•June 20, 2008 • 7 Comments

Yesterday I had a moment of weaknes. I had a tiney bitch fit about something that I knew would sort itself out. These are the last convultions of a dieing life. They will soon pass and like most things that die soon I will only remember the things that help me heal.

Stiffla has been going though the death throughs aswel… this whole situation has changed the man so much I barely recognise him. Hes become fliry and loving as apposed to the fridged shit stirer I delt with. Hes letting the romance into his life and I believe enjoying it too.

Hes my friend and I will always always love him, that is why I would like to share something with you.

This morning when I signed onto msn an ofline message was waiting for me .

Stiffla had writen me a poem:

Strength of day, Strenght of night.

Give us strength beyond our sight

I know it’s difficult, for me and her.

I know she’s got pain, but so do I

I will always love her, I dont know why.

 

O strenght of day, Strenght of night.

Give her strenght, beyond her sight.

I know she is strong, She always been

I know she kind, but sometimes mean

I will always love her, it makes me cry

 

O strenght of day, Strenght of night

Give me strenght, beyond my sight

I know I can be cruel, It makes me sick

But we will always be friends, and we’ll always click

I will always love her, no matter what

I’ll always be there for her, till life takes it’s cut

 

The devorce settlement

•June 19, 2008 • 6 Comments

It is becoming imperitave that I either locate the textbook on clean and effortless breakups or one of those microwaves that workes while the doors are open.

having a moment or two for reflection has made me see exactly how “not cool” this breakup is. We are trying too hard to be nice to one another and there is a huge fight looming about who gets to keep which friends and what becomes of the social structure we have developed.

The last few weeks have been my time to get used to the idee that I am single, that Stiffla and I are no longer, and that I should consider where to from here.

I was just getting used to the idee that marige and mundane bliss is not for me when the next issue popped up.

It seems my few weeks of solitude (that I thought would give stiff a chance to get ofer it) have made our friends think that I had abandonned them.

Now I am not considered when plans are made nor am I even invited… and I am completely fucking upset about it.

I neva play for anybodies attention ever, and I wont do it now. but I am starting to realise that perhaps I really just was the “Hulle” at the end of “DeWet Hulle” a lowly variable that can be changed as the mood changes.

I know that the people I am entertaining now are simply flights of the moment and will evapoprate soon enough, but I had kinna hoped that 4 weekends away from the people I considered my friends would not desolve me.

am I an idiot am I wanting to have my cake and eat it or am I really being fucked over

 

 

 

Virgin Ground

•June 18, 2008 • 4 Comments

I haven’t seen you guys in a while but adjusting to the changes in my life have been keeping me rather busy. I can without a doubt say that this breakup has been the most difficult one I have been through yet, I am unaccustomed to breakups that don’t end hatred and tantrums and thus I am in uncharted waters. Wanting to keep the person close while needing to push them away a bit leaves things hanging in the thick atmosphere that now suffocates our whole entire home.

Stiffla and Will will be moving soon as the wierdness grows every day and we have decided that it would be best for all involved.

I am fully single again and trying to get used to the idee and the attention that comes with being on the prowel again.

I have never been very good at staying single so this time around I have set myself very strickt rules and you wont see this hunny rushing into anything new, no co-habitation untill Im engaged and since I am very anty marage at the moment I wouldnt be worried at all.

Stiff on the other hand is doing very well, I think he’s falling for a chick and he got some good snogging on Saturday night, all be it not with the same chick.

Will is still single, and seemingly content to be so. he has however spent endless thumb numbing hours on MXIT with a lolita that we will just cal Nicki. recently hes gotten very cagy about the details so I can only presume that things are going well.

Soon I will be thinking up good dates for the boys to take their girls while I hang out at home with my cats.

Either way this is me on Virgin Ground, Single, for the first time in more than 5 years.

I promise to blog it all as I have a gap
