Whooooaaa, i must apoligise for being a very slack blogger. I really have not been motivated as of late and as a direct result my blogging has gone to zelch! I bet we all get this way, with the beginning of winter and mid year lull it isn't hard to see why. It is just starting to get colder here in Auckland, still not cold enough for my liking. I am one of those freakish people that enjoy cold weather and winter; in fact it is my favourite season! I am looking at my coats in my wardrobe longing to put them on. I wore one the other night to my friends leaving dinner but no surprises i was cooking by the time i got there. I can't wait for my second winter in December when i go to Seattle, i hope it snows. This would make me very happy.
It's my birthday on Friday, can't believe yet another year has gone by. This birthday will be the first that i haven't spent at home in Taranaki with my family. I'm trying hard to ween myself offa them before i head away(far, far away) for a whole 13 months. Soooooo i have to work on my actual birthday which is pretty lame. BUT i am having celebrations one day early (Thursday). It should be a good day...my sister is taking me out to breakfast first up at one of my favourite cafes, Kokako in Parnell. Kokako are a vegetarian cafe which do amazing, amazing food. It's crazy the amount of things you can do without meat. Then wil probably do a spot of shopping and meet my friend Bridget for lunch. Then i'm going to use a voucher that i have had for more than two years and get a Manicure. This is going to be awesome! I'm not one of those 'girly' girls so i don't normally get stuff like this, nevertheless i bet it will be sweet. Plus whenever i put nailpolish on i mange to get it all over the place, i am quite useless really. Anyway back to the birthday....then i am having a dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Kingsland with all of my friends. And after that heading to the Chemical Brothers album release party at a new bar on Commerce Street. My weekend is also quite filled up. On friday i have a friends EP release for his band 'Turning Tricks' at the Rising Sun. If any of you Auckland people are free then you should deff get along to this. Turning Tricks are an amazing band! I also would'nt mind heading to the usual hangout Cassette for the MUM Clubnight. On Saturday another of my friends band the 'Nomadic Snails' are playing a gig at Whammy Bar. Another great band for you Auckland people. :) Look at me pimping away!
For now i have to go check on my dinner.
I am cooking a delcious vegetarian dish tonight. It is a basil and pumpkin risotto rolled in sesame seeds. Sounds delicious! If it's mouth-watering i will post the recipe for you to try!
Stay Classy and thanks for dropping by.
