Feeling somewhat out of sorts today – a bit cranky …

I need to bust out of it though as I have tons of work to do and I can’t allow myself to get all irritable or I won’t be able to focus properly. Gym at lunchtime should help. I hope.

Shit. I feel like I need another day to get myself together – I can’t believe its Monday already!

The weekend was pretty cool. On Saturday Sir G and I went to a wedding at Meerendal out in Durbanville … stunning setting and awesome food! (Pity I don’t drink wine or I may have been in my element as everyone was raving about the free vino.) Word of advice if you’re planning a wedding: make sure you have enough seats for everyone at the service. Please don’t make 30% of your guests have to stand for an hour, mmk? Oh, and if there’s no aircon and it’s a stinking hot day, you may want to think about getting a couple of fans into the venue so that your friends and family don’t totally melt!

I normally hate weddings but Sir G has known the bride and groom since high school and I know then both pretty well too and it was pretty cool to see two people who’ve been together for 10 years and that you know personally tying the old knot.

I *almost* succeeded in not letting my cynicism about marriage come out, but alas, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go to a wedding again and not think to myself: “Oy people, do you know that you only have a 1 in 2 chance of making it?” Yeah, I’m a right bitch that way – I just think that in general most couples take marriage way too lightly and have no clue what they’re actually in for. Wedding vows are all too often conveniently set aside and forgotten when the going gets tough. Marriage is NOT for wimps.

But having said that, this couple has been together for 10 years so they haven’t exactly rushed into it and they are both about 30 years old, down to earth people and established in their careers. So we’ll see … but marriage is NOT the same as living together and the addition of kids has an uncanny way of upsetting the proverbial apple cart.

Mmk, I’ll stop with that now … it’s not helping my mood anyway :-)

Yesterday was spent running around grocery shopping and doing domestic chores. Booooooring!

Oh well, no more time to chit chat right now … my empire needs some attention.

    Hey Glugster :-)

    Thanks man. I’m off to go sweat it out at the gym now … I’m sure I’ll feel LOADS better when I get back!!

  3. justB[coz] says:

    Mmk … so gym sorta helped … feel better for training but sheesh … WOT a session! I’m ended now …

    And shit … the scale disapproved of the chocolate mousse and Nik Naks I consumed on Saturday night. Pffft.

    I reviewed Meerendal the other day on my blog. Pity that you don’t like wine…. share your thoughts on the rest though.

    Hey Anel … thanks for stopping by :-)

    This was my second visit to Meerendal and both times the hospitality has been outstanding: good environment, good food, good service, good good good!!

    Apparently the wine served at the wedding was great, but alas I can’t drink the stuff – I really don’t enjoy the taste at all. Just as well though, because it gives me a whopping big headache anyway … every time I try a glass.

    I think you need to watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along-Blog. When I’m in a funny mood, it rocks!

  7. justB[coz] says:

    Hellooooo Steve :-)

    Hmm … so I went to visit and I just get a rude message about video not being available outside the States. Bummer. Is there a trick to watching?

    I kinda like weddings – they are about hope! Hope that love may still exist!!

    Hope you feel you better soon!!

  9. justB[coz] says:

    Hi Laura … hmmm …. I’m a it different. I see the hope BEFORE the wedding happens hah! But that’s just my jaded perspective after seeing most of the marriages (including my own) fail and fall apart.

    And as an aside here: of the married couples that DO manage to hold it together, I don’t encounter many very happy individuals – they seem to be forever slagging off their spouses and complaining left, right and centre. Freaks me out! I just think that if you’ve got the opportunity to make it work (not all of us are lucky enough to get that chance), then stop bloody grumbling about your partner all the time!

    Change yourself.

    Mmk, gripe over :-)

    I AM feeling better, believe it or not hahaha!

    Can’t believe they didn’t have enough seats for everyone! That’s a new one.

  11. justB[coz] says:

    Yeah, was a new one for me too Jeanette. I felt soooooo sorry for all the chickies having to stand on that concrete floor in their little stilettos …
