Seven Quick Takes

Linking up with people who don't know I exist for another round of Seven Quick Takes! (Except I can't get the template to work this time) 

1. My friend Nel is birthing a baby right now. Well, at least I think she is. She went in to be induced yesterday at 37 weeks because her baby boy has a problem with his kidneys and I haven't heard anything yet so he's either just born or being born. Yay! 

2. Last weekend we had a culture fest. We saw The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Nighttime on Friday, and a choral concert on the Saturday. I've never had that much culture in one weekend before. I felt like a proper grown-up for a few minutes. 

3. This week I've taught myself how to apply eyeliner to my top lids. Say what?!? Yup, for the last...15 or so years I've only been putting it on the bottom life because I just couldn't figure out how to do the top ones. This week I finally grew up and made myself learn. Sure, it looks kinds crappy right now, but you only have to look at almost every 14-year old girl out there to see that when you first start out with makeup it looks terrible. I'm hoping I'll have got the hang of it by 30. I'm setting myself some real challenging life goals here... 

4. This video. I have no idea why I find it so funny, but it has me in fits of giggles every time I watch it. 

5. For the last week I've been seeing a chiropractor because I am quite possibly the most uptight and tense person in the history of the universe. Man, is it weird. All the poking and manipulation and the cracking....oh, the cracking! Every time she cocks my neck to the side and twists it sharply to get it to crack I'm reminded of those scenes in guy films where someone kills someone else by twisting their head to break their neck. I have to try really hard not to freeze up when I know that part is coming. But it seems to be working, so yay to not having a painful back any more. 

6. I can't think of anything to put here, so.. Apple cider vinegar. I've been drinking it in the mornings, just like Dr Google says. What benefits should I be seeing? Tell me. Thank you please. 

7. My bestie Catherine is coming to stay tonight - more yay! She arrives 1.5 hours and I can't wait to see her. I'm looking forward to wine and a proper catch-up/bitch/whinge. 

Here's wishing you all a fabulous weekend!
