Friday 16 Feb - Sunday 18 Feb

Tue, 20/02/2007 - 13:00 -- irma
Friday we went to the Bowling club in Norwood to see some bands...
Turns out that the band members were all really angry and disturbed kids
who can't sing so instead they yelled.
Now as you all know I like heavy music and has always appreciated
a talented Muso... but that was ridiculous... they didn't say any words but instead
just forced their voices to make uncomfortable AAARRRRGGGGG sounds.
But there were a lot of really impressive and colourful Mow Hawks hopping around.
Good thing the music had no beat (or the instruments could not be heard over the screaming)
because if there was to start a moshpit a few eyes would've been poked out by those hairspray swords!
oh... and the barman was a pirate ( I am not joking... i have no idea what to you call that accent but
he sounded like a pirate).

Saturday was little Robbies' 21st bday party and well.... all I can say is that Leanne, Mike, Will, and I out partied
everyone there. The people started to pass out around 1am. I got home just before 5am.
Will get some pics from Kim and post them (didn't take my camera)

Sunday: Helen, Sylvi and I went to see a show about 60's music.. it was cool.
Afterward we went to Mama Thembos' in Greenside for cocktail hour... stayed there until about 9pm then
went to Jolly Rogers in Parktown got home just after midnight and slept like a baby!

PS. RIP Fransie

Weekend of February 9 to 11th

Thu, 15/02/2007 - 16:18 -- irma

Friday:
Event: Arnies bday party.
Details: Ok , so I was on Television.. Whoo Hoo .. I'm waiting for all the agents to call me and offer me lots of money.
We (Freds, Willem and I) were invited to be part of the live studio audience on Studio 1 on the channel MK89 (it is a South African music channel)
Then the floor manager asked me and Willem and Freds if we would each give a "shout out" to whoever we want.
Freds declined and instead stood behind me, waved at the camera and mouthed " Hello mom" . Willem and I did our shout outs.
Then we went to the pin and putter (pub at the local golf course) and met all my friends there for Arnies' bday celebration.
Round about midnight people started fading and went home... Hennie, Andre, Stefan and I refused to stop before sunrise!
So we went to Pete and Jerry's until their bar closed... then we moved on to Cantaloops... where we stayed for the rest of the evening/morning.
We even socialized with Ross, the lead singer from Prime Circle... Since I was on TV and I am also a celebrity now it is called socializing and
not stalking.
The sun started rising and we went home tired (hammered) but happy.

Saturday:
I only completely woke up after noon sometime, got ready and drove through to Pretoria for Johnny and Noi's wedding.
They looked fabulous and Noi is stunning.
I took it very slow on Saturday and was back to Joburg before midnight.
(Like you can see.. I did not wear my watch this weekend so the sun was my only guide.)

Sunday:
Sunday club was supposed to be a big 20km hike in Castle gorge with Quelene and the gang...
But it started at 7am and was going to be a long day at the end of a long weekend.. we just couldn't do it.
So instead leane and I went shopping in Eastgate, ate strange food, went home and napped.

BTW: Haydn and Carrot is engaged now.. Am I getting that old?

Happy Birthday Kim!!!!

Thu, 08/02/2007 - 16:39 -- irma

On Tuesday, January 6 2007, it was Kims' birthday (Or as she likes to say: We celebrated a quarter century of Kim)

Since she had her photography thing on Tuesdays we had to have post-birthday cocktails on Wednesday.

We went to Mama Thembas in Greenside and had our long awaited 'Girls night', Kim, Leanne, Ilze and myself. (we get to hang out with Ilze when Anton is out of town and we always have a ton of fun).

Leanne asked our waiterboy to service us, but instead he brought us drinks. (which is ok, I guess).

Eventually Kim got free drinks from everybody.... and well... all I'm saying is thatv at least it was not like when Britney vomited a powerful tidalwave of hot chunky grey puke into Isaac Cohen's hands in front of about a billion photographers a few weeks ago... (mainly because Isaac Cohen wasn't there neither were there photographers - and it was pink, not grey), but here are the pics of the rest of the evening:

Sunday February 4th 2007

Mon, 05/02/2007 - 15:50 -- irma
On Friday my friend Heini (aka. Vis, Fish, Nemo...) and I decided to be 19 again and we went to the 'Jool' at UJ (University of Johannesburg).. it is an annual party at the beginning of the year and WONDERBOOM, Parlotones, Karma, Love Jones and Revolver played.. It was really cool. Heini and I found a bunch of his old varsity buddies, all really cool people... I'm definitely gonna go with them to Oppikoppie this year! I went home just after 3am and woke up feeling very weak on Saturday. Then Lankie, Kim and I went for brunch... then shopping then ended up having cocktails again. I was home at 10pm already (i thought that I would feel better as the day goes by but by 10pm I was a fragile as could be... so Stan and I just watched a DVD at my place for the rest of the night.
So.... this weekend was great but Sunday club kinda got neglected this week, the reasons for that...
* I slept all day
* Willem went to Harrysmith for the weekend.
* Jorik had a gig in Pretoria
* Stanley is a workaholic and how will SA survive without a new meerkat?

PS. Happy Birthday Sindie!!!!
