victoire.za.net

gaaa! za.net is taking ages to update my dns... in actual fact i've been in the same place in the queue since i registered the change on the 23rd october! number 151... damn it! i really appreciate all they do... but now i can't use my site, and i'm losing all my emails... what can i do???? i've thought of registering a new domain name elsewhere, but that just defeats the purpose, and it's too much schlep!

in other news...

1.
i went to a lovely birthday braai last night, haven't been "out" for a while, and thoroughly enjoyed it. met some interesting new people, whom i really wouldn't mind being friends with if it ever works out that way.

woke up with a mean hangover, even though i did not drink *that* much. i'm not used to drinking anymore. damn archers. damn "something for the ladies" headache!

2.
i got stuck in menlyn shopping centre yesterday! there have been some hectic, but welcome, storms in gauteng this weekend! i was in pick 'n pay (of all places, why couldn't it have been somewhere cool like YDE?) when all the lights tripped in menlyn. of course people started rushing about, leaving trolleys of groceries so they could leave the shop. i even saw a trolley with 3 large tubs of ice cream, amongst other perishables, just left there... how inconsiderate... but anyway, i was not about to just drop my hard found booty, so had to wait till the generators kicked in... and then there were queues! urgh... when i finally got out menlyn was full of this oily hazy smoke from the restaurants. disgusting. and all the shops were closed and dark. really surreal. for a second i thought the building was burning down... and all these people were just milling around, or sitting in restaurants, lunch-less. and that's not all. the parking. took me 1 hour to get from my parking spot outside! what chaos.

3.
i had my hair cut on friday eve. i was going to go for the usual cut & blow... and then on impulse asked my hairdresser to do something different. she did a similar style to her own. it's much shorter. very layered. at times i love it, others i just don't know. she also used straightening irons, so it looks great straight, but i have no idea what will happen tomorrow when i wash my hair and all the curls return! hold thumbs that it will look decent... even semi-decent. i'll post some pics some time.

that's not all i have in common with my hairdresser... relationships... we talk about relationships! how stereotyped can one get... :) it's fun though... weird but fun.

4.
my paper is still crawling along... it's been difficult to focus this weekend. gar just get done... wish i had a magic wand... don't get me wrong i'm actually enjoying it, it's just that i'm lazy :) "let me go out... i got a blister in the sun"

5.
i missed the violent femmes concert! :( so disappointed. my own fault for waiting around to see if i would have anyone to go with... when i did find someone, the standing tickets were sold out. *sigh* gar... these things only really come around once in a lifetime, and it would've been nice, the femmes were one of the first bands i started listening to when i was in school. but i'll stop bitchin' now!

6.
i have hiccups. *hic* strange 'cause i usually only get them when i'm hungry, and i just had lunch. *hic*
