last night


sometimes we take life too seriously, and what fun is there when you not enjoying the journey?

last night i attended a networking dinner organised by mike stopforth entrepreneur and general fabulous guy. it was great fun. kath roderick from microsoft south africa spoke and was very interesting. what an top girl. she is interesting, intelligent and so down-to earth.

once the formalities were over there was an Xbox Guitar Hero World Tour tournament, where you get yourself into a "band" guitarist, basist, singer and drummer, and show of your rock star skills Xbox style! now, i'm no gamer or musician (although i did do music as a subject at school, i never continued after high school), but i'm always up for anything. everyone participated which was even more fun, cheering and whoot whooting!

then "front street girls" made their appearance - me - sugabunny - on vocals (cough cough), mel - artist formerly known as princess - on drums - in a skirt - how hot! pal - rocker - on bass (what a cool chick) and ange - angel star - on lead. you HAD to be there...

we did our own rendition of Nirvana's "about a girl" and we ROCKED! i mean... of course!

in the end, i won a shopping voucher for Sandton City - wait for it - R1500 ($150 USD) for being best singer!! haha... measured by the Guitar Hero game... how RANDOM and fun!

made me realise that sometimes i take life way to seriously and i really need to get out more and have some fun! plus i made new friends, which is fab!!


remember, life is too short to take too seriously, so enjoy everyday, let your hair down, dance in the rain, smile at a stranger, compliment the one you love (how often do we criticize?), spoil yourself, change your job if you not happy, enjoy the wind on your face and feel alive, build a puzzle, sit on the grass, go fishing, sing in front of strangers... do things that make your soul smile!!

Wow, you can sing? How awesome! And brave, I think, to sing for people, but then again, I'm not much of a singer.
