And the rest........

Evenin' all (In my best English Bobby accent)

It certainly has been a busy week. Here's some things that I now know;

  1. Waratah is very quiet on a Wednesday evening...except when it's "Larry Potter" night at Rose Cottage
  2. Mary Raihn was definitely not in her vinegar tips mode on aforementioned evening..dancing, shaking, rattling, rolling....but I love her anyway even when she is...when would this be????...
  3. Larry Potter is an exihibitionist.......pots, bowls....... loves to drum and share the energy in public places such as Rose Cottage
  4. Arty Farty Mary has very, very beautiful hair....and I'm sure we've been friends before...somewhere...sometime....
  5. Mary Rylah is very pretty, but she doesn't know it.... and she is now the proud owner of 'Mary Zippy'... and she lives in the same suburb that I grew up in.
  6. Faerie Mary is just that; a divine diminutive faerie who exudes energy and enthusiasm, even with a migraine and sick fur kid at home... and GG was her 1st internet whimsigal buyer. This lovely and unique brooch attracted quite a bit of attention.
  7. Mary Jen... this woman is as funny face to face as she is on her blog... a very generous soul....
  8. Mary Boss certainly gets a gong for her wonderful sense of rhythm and timing.... unfortunately there was only one gong to give her...never mind, she can only operate one at a time...she's a dab hand at the bongos as well... and provides a soothing aura of calmness over a cup of tea.......
  9. Mary Tesah is full of energy!.... and has her personal pole on order...but she better not let any beginners on it..we all know what happens on slippery poles......(yep Lisa..I went there)
  10. There were more blogging Mary's there...they just don't know it yet.
  11. We welcomed a new blogging Mary.. poor girl agonised over her blog name, found one that she thought was perfect, then we went and changed it on her... we love you Hairy Melon....that is... . Mary Jewel....
  12. Blogland seems a little empty without Upduff Mary and Ruby... having fun in Queenland, they are......
  13. Mary Raihn has become an ace wather forecaster... better than Grant Denyar.... miles in front of Tim Bailey... (why are the current weathermen, short, blonde, adrenaline junkies?).. she even rivals the great Des Hart... now there was a meteorologist for you! But Our Mary Raihn told me she had arranged for a cessation in the rain on Thursday evening so that GG and her friends could arrive and leave their formal in a dry and un-bedraggled state.....and so they did!!! The Professional photos were taken outside too...nice overcast sky to prevent glare and squinting...gentle breeze blowing..but no rain! Thank you Mary noRainforGG'sbignight!!!!!!!
  14. Rose Cottage rocks!!!!
  15. Dreadlocks CAN look good.....especially on a evil fairy woodnymph.
  16. One should NEVER use one's husband's electric razor to shave one's underarms....regardless of the fact that it worked just fine on the legs....this is extremely painful and leads to a very uncomfortable shaving rash.......never good in the sweaty section of the body that arm pits are....sweating hurts, and hurting makes you sweat more, which hurts, which, in turn, makes you sweat more... if you get my drift......it is absolutely NOT SCHMICK!!!
  17. Scorpa Boy had his long and unkempt hair cut off this week... very unsure about the whole thing, he was........until the hairdresser informed him that a boy came into the shop the next afternoon asking to have the same haircut!!....Very chuffed, he was.......
  18. Most people don't understand when you tell them that you haven't been nailed for almost 20years.. all sorts of things go through their minds.... GG and I both had acrylic nails applied for the big night... as those in attendance at Rose Cottage would have seen...I love my new nails....they make me feel pretty, and make my stumpy little hands and fingers much more feminine, and, well... girly.... and I feel like my beautiful nanna, who always had fabulously manicured nails (which I didn't inherit). I must have Italian heritage somewhere along the way, and use my hands a lot when I talk.... people are really noticing them at the moment. I want to keep them. But like all things beautiful, they have their dark side;
  • I'm not supposed to have them for work due to OH&S considerations (but I LOVE them..and I would never deliberately shred the skin off somebody)
  • It's really hard to open ring pulls (so you have to buy bottle of drink instead, or use a can opener....or get someone else to do it for you..fat chance of this at our house...)
  • Zippers, buttons, ribbons and laces can be tricky
  • Craft glue should never be used when wearing nailpolish as it's 60% acetone..difficult in my line of work.....
  • But I love them.....
  • Using a mobile phone requires the development of some very natty (and seductive; ok, so I made that bit up) finger/button-pressing techniques....
  • There are potential hazards in the removal of belly button fluff from another individual.....
  • They can get in the way when chopping vegetables...not sure about this task yet...I might have to retire from the heady world of vegetable slicing...
  • Not sure about them in regard to personal hygiene tasks either, at this point..short and scrubbed might be easier......
  • But I LOVE them.
  • They are flammable..but I haven't been an arsonist for a while
  • They have no real practical use, and I am such a practical and grounded person (Capricorn..), that spending money on their up keep just doesn't make sense, and seems to be a waste of my very precious time....and they seeem to have grown already...
  • On the other hand, the girls at the salon are so much fun.......
  • But the biggest difficulty I have endured so far with my beautiful fingernails is ...........typing. For someone like me, who is already extremely challenged in this department, missing letters and double-stroked keys are a nightmare. I seem to spend more time than ever correcting my appalling typing...plurgh to the max...
  • And there is an annoying clicking sound when I type, too..... it might even wake Beloved up... or not....
  • So, I guess they'll have to go. But not totally. I think I'll compromise by having them cut shorter, so that way they might be a bit more manageble....I'm very good at the art of compromising.....
Sorry, that's ended up being quite long winded. I should have instructed you to provide yourself with some refreshments before you started reading, or inserted an intermission somewhere....But then again, I could have edited that in at any time.... oh, I am such a bad, mean-spirited Mary........time to say goodnight...it's after midnight, as usual.......

Anyway, Love to you all, as always,
Blogmuggle <3>

yes, I love the nails even with all the pitfalls attached...i love them.....getting nailed marks the beginning of the 3 weekly deslagging period.
so glad you managed to make a circle night and see what all the fuss was about & thrilled my friend the RAIN held off for GG big night- I tried also to wrestle an agreement out of the wind, but it is a trickier customer altogether.........
some photos of Jack-attacks new do please.........

Go to customize page and click and drag it back to where it lives. Sometimes blooger has a mind of its own!

I have to admit, slippery poles are sometimes not as much fun as it sounds. But it depends on what variety of slippery pole you are after! ;)
