Its all about me... all about me

Sooo, we just got back from Salsa... We had a real workout tonight and Meg and I were STOKED that we actually could do the steps! Once you get the rhythm you just sort of have to go with it. Of course, we are rushing off to buy a salsa cd tomorrow to PRACTISE PRACTISE PRACTISE!

We dragged five of the volunteer girls with us, and they had so much fun, they are all going back to their corners of the world to hunt down their closest salsa class - bless their hearts :) After the class the instructor danced with a woman who has been having private lessons for a few months. They could MOVE... but my fabulous 'anonymous' friend said :

" Nah, they ain't got no chemistry - Salsa should be Sex on Stiletto's" ha ha - love u my friend. You summed it up perfectly - Sex on Stiletto's - we can all cope with a bitta that ;)

Ok, y'all can stop blushing now. ha ha - I have visions of all of my faithful blog readers pitching up to salsa class next week in their stiletto's now - guys and all - oh funny funny.

Ooh, I had my nails done at Carlton this morning darling - they look SO fabulous if I do say so myself. I will take a picture tomorrow to post here - I just KNOW you're all dying to see them.

So, this post is going to be all about me - all about me:

I sent out an email recently to friends entitled: "How well do you know me?"

Its an email with 20 questions on it that THE PERSON THAT YOU EMAIL IT TO has to answer about YOU and then email it back to YOU. get it? got it.

So I got replies from Laura, Mandy, Kerri, Lana & Kat, these are their replies, they are so funny. If you dont know me that well, you will know me SO well after reading their answers. The italics, is me commenting.. Go make a cup of tea - go on, off you go... then come back to your pc, settle back in your uncomfortable office chair and think of me and only me . Hahahahahahahhahah - ok ok, i'll stop. Here goes:

KERRI: I can’t remember a time when I didn’t know you, so I don’t know
LANA: mmm - intellectual ....(you were wearing glasses).................

Ha Ha - again, first impressions can be very deceiving... :)
