Don’t you just love it when you find the exact music that captures the mood you are in? Most mornings I spend the drive to work jumping from radio station to radio station trying praying to hear something decent, but those morning DJ’s talk too darn much for my liking. Then whilst the traffic proceeds to crawl at 1 metre every 10 minutes I’m usually busy flipping through my CD’s hoping something will jump out while inwardly berating myself for not getting that iPod connection thingy for the car. This morning I find a gem, a blast from the past, a CD chocker block with summer themed beats from early 2000.
I forgot that the traffic was crawling, I forgot that it was a cool 10 degrees outside, in that moment I was in, what Shona aptly termed, a Saint Tropez state of mind! Those beats reminded me of balmy nights at varsity and laughter-filled nights on white sand beaches with family.
My current Saint Tropez mind involves sunny skies, a big white Diddy-ish yacht, mojitos, a gold bikini with matching heels (so pornstar i know, but i love that look), some D&G stunners, the sounds of “Lady (Hear me tonight)” by Modjo playing in the background and fabulous company (preferably of the easy on the eye variety).
So tell me, what and who does your Saint Tropez state of mind involve?
The Brady Bunch: Back in February when I was holidaying in the Cape, my mates and I caught a comedy show by David Newton who is a self-proclaimed award winning comedian. Guys, it was PAINFUL, he wasn’t funny…h e was offensive. There’s such a thin line between being funny and being rude and sadly he veered more towards the latter. The exact opposite is true of another South African comedian Trevor North, he’s hilarious…side-splitting-oh-my-hat kinda funny, so there’s some redemption among South African comedians.
This weekend, Wayne Brady of the “Whose Line Is It Anyway” fame, has taken a trip out to the motherland and is performing and I seriously can’t wait to see him!
Funny guys NEVER finish last. True story :-)
Miss New Booty: It appears that all those Woolies Peppermint Caramel Sundaes that I’ve been scoffing down as though my life depended on it, are finally having the desired effect I was going for. My booty is making a comeback, YAY! Random outburst, i know, but i thought i'd share!
Bad News Week: Heartfelt condolences to the grieving families with loved ones on the Air France plane that crashed. As tragic as the story is, and as nervous a flyer as I am, we must still remember that it’s still the safest mode of travel - for now anyway.
