Going with the theory that the best blogging is done drunk

It is fair to say that in the world of Wanda Harland, it has been a big weekend.

Starting with "afternoon tea" on Friday (which - oh uh, big reveal - isn't really tea, but an excuse to start drinking). Obviously there was some of the upside down b, some wine, some pizza, some spin the bottle.

Saturday we had the big surprise party - which I couldn't previously blog about in case he read it - (fat chance, I'm not that popular yet). A grand night involving eating out and babysitting (thanks Jannene), and balti, and saying "penis" too loud in a quiet restaurant.

Sunday should have been the day of rest. However it was a gorgeous day, and I thought it prudent to dig up the paving tiles. These proved to be VERY GODDAMN HEAVY. So after 4 loads I retired. At this point I'm thinking 10 a day will do.

And the night ended with booze. The best thing about meeting more people around the 'hood, is the increased socialising opportunities. I can recommend Petone for increased drinking ops. Go Petone.

I work in a very intimate little cafe where the kitchen isn't separated from the customers at all and we are always saying 'penis' too loud.

my favourite was when my boss went to see 'a suitable woman' but said (too loudly) that she didn't like it because helen hunt looks like she has a dry vagina.

i'm sorry that was probably way too rude to put on your blog

'a suitable woman' is a movie starring helen hunt....

Rosie dear, you're welcome to say whatever you like on my blog. Think of how many more hits I'll get from people doing searches on "dry vagina" now.

Ms Vile File said...

Yup. All blog traffic is good blog traffic. And I agree entirely. A dry Hunt is a very bad thing.

Think of it as doing a public service - saying such words nice and loud makes the more uptight patrons titter. They then go home and, well, you know. I'm just too polite to say ;-)

Next time I'm in Petone I'll look a bit harder for these drinking ops you mention. I keep getting dragged out of there into insalubrious parts of the city...

oh good, sometimes I get worried because I have no self censorship and I think I regularly cross the line....
