I’m back and guess what? You know that shift you’re feeling now where your life suddenly seems so profound, yep that’s the one, also it probably didn’t happen once the clock struck 12 this year. While we would like to believe that this year is a chance to live vicariously and take more chances because THE WORLD. IS ENDING!!! Probably not gonna happen and you know you can’t change just cause you decided to, and yes change is inevitable but like fate it can’t be rushed and just cause a few people predicted that the world was gonna end and the Mayans ran out of stone well doesn’t mean you have to change who you are. If you spend the next year plotting and planning ways to be bigger, better, brighter, you’ll end up disappointed ;at the end the day just live, laugh, love and have fun. If we end up going in the end, go happy and proud and on that note lets review the last entertaining bits of 2011 and the beginning of 2012.
This year Christmas was different, to say the least. This year my mother, the presenter and cook of our legendary Christmas dinners, was working night shifts at the hospital. This meant that she would be sleeping until dinner time and that me and my sister would have to single-handedly cook Christmas dinner. Considering our mild and mediocre cooking conquests in comparison to Christmas Dinner. This was the Big Leagues and we were being thrown into the deep end with nothing but a pair of toddler sized deflated floaties and a rubber duckie. We approached this task openely. “I came. I saw. I conquered.” Almost. Our menu was as follows:
Appetizers .Cocktail sausages .Bruschetta .Garlic Bread
Main Menu .Carbonara .Fried Rice .Potato Salad .Mashed Potatoes .Roast Chicken .Roast Ham .Shrimp Scampi that ended up as Shrimp Mascarpone
Desserts .Large Vanilla Cheese Cake .Homemade Ice cream .Jelly
Considering the Great Christmas Dinner of 2006 where the table was so stocked with food on display you could not put even baby size plates of served food on the table, this was a disappointing and unsatisfying task but everything went well,almost everything. The ham had a slight pink tinge in the middle and the flesh between the ribs of the Chicken was pink and had a tiny bit of blood. No one got food poisoning and there were no upchucks just some extremely satisfied and grateful parents and a movie in the living room.
Now onto the Joint Surprise Party. Two Close friends of mine both turned 19 and a joint surprise party was held for them last Saturday. I was overjoyed and could not wait for this event. Not only was I permitted to go but I was guaranteed a fun night considering the people attending and the two surprise guests and that’s what it was a good night, a great night. Nothing like the Halloween disaster of 2011 just fun, friends and food. Considering “Butt-crack Gate” I opted for a dress. With tights. It was so much fun. My makeup was on point and my out fit was clean and freshly spritzed with a gorgeous perfume. There were no boys to flirt with and no one special to see me but I danced the night away and had a blast even though we had to leave early. I reconnected with a friend who had gone to university abroad on a scholarship and I had the time of my life.
Now for the confidence boost. I recently got my hair done. Extensions to be percise and I am soaring on a confidence high right now. Not only did girls notice me but boys did too. And before anyone even saw me,due to an unfortunate fraping on Facebook I got to talking to a popular jock who later on went to describe me as “De hole pakage, with a gr8 rack and perfect ass” excuse the illiteracy, but me, the quiet girl in school described as the whole package!!! He also happened to divulge that one of the cutest guys in school, if you can excuse his PMS like mood swings, as saying ” Nikki’s boobs are massive, I would….” Oh Glory I am considered “doable.” Even though I would have nothing to do with these immature, uncharismatic buffoons, there’s nothing better than a free compliment right?
Oh Happy Holidays indeed!!!
Its Been Me, Nikki Woodlands.
