Do You Ever Get Over Your First Love?

Do you ever get over your first love?

There are 3 reasons that compelled me to write this blog – 1. I had a discussion with Tamara where we were talking about first loves and how we would feel if they resurfaced after all this time. Even though we felt we were both over them, we both said that we would definitely meet up with them again. 2. I have been home for a week sick like a dog with flu/sinusitis. I have been watching Ricki Lake more or less every day. Today there was a woman who came to confront her high school boyfriend for denying her. She was married with a kid and still wanted closure! She kept asking, “Why did you do that to me? Ten years later!

You Man Is Shacked Up With Another Chick

My friend (Theresa) lives with her guy friend (Tommy). She rents a room from him. They live together in a two bedroom house in Manchester. Tommy has a girlfriend that he has been going out with for the past 8 months, lets call her Melinda. Melinda has an 8 year old little girl and they come up to Manchester every other weekend to visit. Melinda and Tommy are kinda serious. So serious that Melinda suggested to Tommy that they move in together. Somehow a misunderstanding occured and Melinda was under the impression that Tommy wanted her to move in with him.

Why I Love Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil – Part 3

THE NON-BRAZILIANS I’ve met I luv em too… Natasha, who I thought was a complete NUT upon first meeting, but warmed to in about 5 seconds and made a repeat trip with. Sasha, the British guy who I met through the rogue that rented me the dodgy apartment last time. Despite how we met, he turned out to be alright. Shay and Iya whom I met for the first time in an airport on Christmas day. From leaving the airport in the afternoon distressed and sans luggage to one of the best Christmas nights ever. I must say I have never spent a Christmas Night on a street corner and who could have known it could be so much fun.

Why I Love Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil – Part 2

I love the people… All the random folk I have just bumped into… From born Brazilians to those living there from elsewhere, to those just passing through. I Love all the wonderful people I have met. Marrianna, who has a zest for life and sense of adventure that is rare to find (except she wouldn’t follow me to Piraja) that you rarely see. Her perfect English confused my friend and I. He was convinced she was American. Of course he was wrong.

Why I Love Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil – Part 1

At Christmas I will go to Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil for the 5th time. I have been asked many times before what I love about the place, so I decided to put it all down here. First on my list of loves had to be THE FOOD. Being a complete foodie means that I can be compelled to take a trip somewhere just because of the food, case in -point; New Orleans. I heard about the cuisine down there, dreamt about it, decided that I needed to sample it and took a trip down there and ate for England. Of course I had to spin it to the friends I was travelling with some shit about the French Quarter… The marvellous culture yadda yadda yadda, but the simple truth is, I just wanted to eat.

Chasing A Rastaman Called Viviane

It started off with a kiddie’s party. My friend’s son’s first birthday.”1 today!” “Happy Birthday!” While I was setting the tables up I started nibbling, Marshmellows, Tortillas, Mini chocolate sponge cakes, Chocolate rice krispy cakes… Ooooh remind me of coco pops… Turns the milk chocolatey. Popcorn, Nuts, Jelly babies. Somebody please put some sellotape over my mouth! By the time the real food came I was bursting, but being the glutton that I am I managed to find room.

I Was Brought Up And NOT Dragged Up!

There is a place that I go to for lunch sometimes. They do barbequed jerk chicken with salad for £3.50. It is affordable and ideal because there are no heavy carbs to make you feel bloated and distorted. It is also quick because the chicken is always on the grill and ready, fresh for my mouth. Not too long ago I had a bad experience there where I had ordered my food and when I had finished paying at the till there was no room in front of me to go to the counter where the food is picked up because there were a lot people in front of me queuing for their food. As I was standing in the way of the people that wanted to order I moved away to the far end of the food counter. I had my ticket so it wasn’t like I was trying to push in as the ticket tells the time of the order.

My Starring Role In A Channel 4 Production

I was at home watching Hollyoaks when Ruth and her friend from work came home. Ruth was screaming out my name. There was urgency in her voice, which was high pitched with excitement. It was as if something great had happened. Anxious to hear whatever it was she was going to say I ran to the top of the stairs to see what all the commotion was about, and she shrieked, “They are filming outside!” I had seen the film crew trucks and cameras outside the café on the corner and we had also had a postcard put through the door the week before, so I was a little dejected that that was the “great” news she had to share.

A Conversation On A Double Decker Bus

This scene took place on the top of a double decker bus this morning at about 8.30 am. Both guy and girl appeared to be in their mid twenties. If I were her the conversation would have got locked off at the first insult, but then again I wouldn’t be sitting on a bus dropping in causal conversation with an acquaintance anything about a pregnancy miscarriage.

Roller Skating Down A Slope And Smashing My Knee

Remember I bought some skates. I called them my babies. Well let me tell you they are not my babies any more. I am calling time out from these bastards. So it is 7 in the morning and I’m at my mama’s house. I have my roller skates with me and my stupid ass decides to go for an early morning skate around the block. I exit… The house is on a gentle slope, or so it seems. Left is down and right is up. However this ain’t no game console. This is real life. I turn left. ***ERROR*** In seconds I know I am in trouble and I don’t know what to do. I pick up speed very quickly and I cannot stop.
