Merry Christmas people!

So dudettes and dudes, we've reached the 23rd of December. Today is cookie-baking day and I'm making chocolate chip cookies and napolitaines because my parents hate chocolate chip cookies. I know, I was shocked when I got to know that they both hate chocolate chip cookies too. How can anyone ever hate that?

Anyway, I'll be spending the afternoon baking then going out for dinner and shopping tonight with Jev. Tomorrow will be hectic what with the pre-Christmas lunch and dinner and all the gift wrapping and unwrapping, decorating and re-decorating. You know how it goes...

Our Christmas tree is still a naked green thing for now. I took out all the Christmas decoration boxes but then I haven't yet felt the Christmas spirit overcome me. Hope that it overcomes me soon enough or the decorations will be spending Christmas in their boxes.

I took Missy to the vet on Monday. The guy says she's doing great except for a few bruises and a fur problem she's acquired during her time spent as a wild puppy.

So dudettes and dudes, I was supposed to wish you all a merry Christmas 'cause I know I won't be able to tomorrow probably. So here goes:

Be happy people and binge eat 'cause Christmas is a good excuse for that, don't feel guilty about the gifts you're giving to people, (this year I'm offering pickles, cookies and flowers as gifts, you couldn't have done worst that me), be around the people that you love 'cause that's what Christmas is all about, (at least in my books it is) and then have yourselves a merry little Christmas...

I would have loved to say "I love you all" but I know you'll hate my unexpected display of affection but then heck, I LOVE YOU ALL! Haha! Merry Christmas.

Ooh, I'm feeling the spirit now. Gotta go people! A Christmas tree is awaiting me.

And the weekend comes...

Jev is away for the weekend with his friends. I think the two of us would make the most of those days spent away from each other. I have planned to read Twilight, yup Twilight. I've kept the book waiting for too long. I'm not really looking forward to it but I can't ever leave a book unfinished. There'll be this feeling of something I might be missing that'll keep hunting me. About Twilight, I don't think I'll be missing much but yet I gotta finish the book and this weekend is the perfect time for it.

I was supposed to go to Ile aux Cerfs with my HR buddies tomorrow but I'm not feeling like it. I gotta look after Missy and one of my good friends is not coming. It won't be quite the same without her...

Anyhow, yesterday we tried to go to Nando's but guess what? There was a huge crowd of people who did the exact same thing. So we ended up grabbing a sandwich at Shoprite and having dinner at Riche-Terre instead of joining the queue.

The freaky Nando's mascot

Anyone of you dudettes and dudes has been to Nando's yet?

How to...

You know how when you start typing something on Google search, it automatically starts giving you popular search terms that probably depend on your location. For instance, when I type 'M' on Google search I get this:

MSN, Mauritius turf club,, one can infer that those are popular search terms used in Mauritius. So I decided to take a look at what "How's" people searched for and here's what I got:

Now that was hilarious, especially for the first 3 terms.

Productive holidays!

I always used to think that holidays were meant to laze around, do nothing in particular, just enjoying those free moments. To be honest, most of my past holidays were happily spent that way, until... well, this year. That's one thing about having responsibilities, you just can't sit around and enjoy being free, at least that's what happened to me. So I ended up doing all those stuff I've been wanting to do and saying I would do from the moment that I manage to have some free time. Stuff like cleaning the vegetable patch or removing all dried leaves from the flower garden have been checked off my list. I can now proudly say that I have been busy right from the time that I got my holidays and that week and a half has been very productive so far.

Part of my time has also been spent taking care of a lovely creature and I would like you dudettes and dudes to meet Missy.

I've adopted her on Saturday, she had been wandering about before landing before our gate and she gave me the puppy-look. Now who can resist that? So she's now part of the family and she seems to be happy about it...

Sweet December

I'm done with my exams. Actually I got done with it since last Friday. Everything went fine. I got my case study two days in advance and I nailed the paper. Now that was not cheating though. The lecturer arranged for us to have our exams case study 2 days ahead of the exams. How cool is that?

As from Friday, I got involved in a lot of stuff, I lunched and shopped for Christmas with my sister, I went to La Nicoliere to get some pine cones for Christmas decorations with Jev and I'm planning a little something for this Sunday with my family. There'll be cakes and stuff...

This month promises to be hectic and I'm really looking forward to it. There's nothing better than December to cheer me up. It's all about the celebrations, happy moments and events. More will be said about the events later...

I'm now off to watch some TV dudettes and dudes! Oh, and did I mention I'm on holidays? :p
