Further to yesterday's post

Which, incidentally, is the first post I have made since November 9th, 2006 that has received no comment. I know of people who delete posts that get no comment - I'm not exactly sure why, maybe to make it look like their blog is always popular? But, if you do that, you know you're faking and WTF? Anyway, I'm not about to delete that post, because it's about my Mum. My Mum is special.

Uh.. anyway, yes, about the clothing thing. As xhile has rightly pointed out, my wardrobe may very well explode. So I thought it was time for a cleanout.

I will edit with photographs of the results later, just to prove I can part with stuff. No really. I can. *nod*

Wish me luck. *dives into the pile*

Cleaning out my closet, part 2 - The Transformation

Today, I also discovered what it's like to sit in a room with two music buffs meeting each other for the first time, going about 800 words per minute between them. I learned a lot in a very short space of time and now my ears hurt. I like the way the people I know seem to get along with each other. It wasn't always like that. I used to think I was cursed to be close to people who couldn't stand each other, but that was another lifetime.

Also, I've found a new favourite fish and chip shop. Seaview Takeaways, Lyall Bay. On the foreshore, near the west end opposite the surf club.

Cost $2.20
Fish: Tender, juicy, just the right amount of batter.
Chips: They cut their own! And they know how to cook them so they are crisp and yum.
Service: Quick, friendly.
Overall: With a bit of lemon and maybe some tartare sauce, these guys would be a 10. Very impressed.
Rating: 9.5/10

I have had a good weekend, despite my plans all falling apart due to weather. And there are NEW CLOTHES to wear tomorrow. This excites me. Call me shallow. You'd be wrong but I don't mind. ;-)

NB: I still seem to have 12 long skirts and 8 short ones. This is an improvement. And I wear all of them. Honest.
