Tongue Kissing Skulls

One day, if I ever start a band it will be called ‘Tongue Kissing Skulls’.  I’ll be the drummer and back up singer.  Mostly because I can’t sing but like the idea of having a mike leaning over my drum kit.  This picture will be on the cover of our first album.  Man, I’m excited.

In other news, there will be no new posts on Ameezing for the next few days as I switch over to a self hosted blog. This pupae is becoming a butterfly.  Yaay!

I’ll keep you updated right here as it unfolds.  Exciting times ahead.

I just want to say thank you to you, Dear Ameezing Reader, for being part of helping me discover this thing called writing, this thing that makes me so inexplicably happy. So thank you.  And hugsies.

[Ooh, let’s hug it out and keep in touch on twitter – @MsAmeezing]

So I went Speed Dating…

Last Wednesday, the giant pimple on my face and I went Speed Dating.  When my cousin had invited me a few weeks earlier, I absent-mindedly agreed, thinking that I would never really, actually go. At most, I’d maybe just tweet about that one time I almost went Speed Dating.

Wednesday came, along with the most spectacular display of adult acne.  And it was cold.  And I had nothing to wear.  And I reeeally didn’t want to go and meet some crazy man who had gerbils for housemates and thought false nails were a look, for himself.  But then my cousin reminded me of my New Year’s Resolutions and I thought of the blog post material the evening might produce.  Curiosity took over in a force even bigger than my giant pimple, and so off into the cold night air my giant pimple and I went.

You Guys!

You guys, I am super excited to tell you that Ameezing the Blog is getting a revamp.  She is becoming a blog, a real life  big ol’ blog.  Ready to take on the big, badass world of grown up blogs.  Its pretty amazing to watch the talents of a real blog designer unfold and I can.not.wait to show you how pretty she is going to be.  Mamas very proud.

Ooh, and I got glasses.  Which I was secretly mostly excited about for the nerdy girl aesthetic, but turns out seeing into the distance in crystal clarity and not having aching eyes at the end of the day is also pretty ameezing.

Happy Friday, You Guys x

PS. Forget fancy studios and the awesome loft apartments of your friends, this photo was taken in the parking lot.  Of Cresta shopping Centre.

Ghost Stories

Pre-Ghost Tour snacks at our house.  Ghost Pops, Skull Gums and ‘Veins’. Obs.

Pre-Ghost Tour ghosts at our house – Make yours with balloons, sandwich paper and a permanent marker.

On Saturday night, seven of us friends put on as many layers of clothing as we could find and headed out into the freezing (literally) Joburg night to The Mystery Ghost Bus Tour.  The tour is run mostly from a bus (with the locations kept secret and changing with every tour).  And includes two pubs stops and a midnight visit to a graveyard.  Even though I am a huge scaredy cat, I would really like to go back to some of the buildings that we saw and go exploring.  Did you know that there is a castle in Kensington?  Our Kensington?!

There were several times where I found myself wanting to yell, ‘Stop the bus! Let’s go inside and find ourselves some ghost friends!’  And I would have loved to hear some more stories and details of the buildings we drove past.

It was fascinating to be reminded how old and steeped in stories of days gone by our city is.  And ameezing to be on a midnight adventure with friends.  And hip flasks.  Ooooooohhoooo.

Vital Ghost Tour Prep.

This is what zero degrees at midnight in a graveyard looks like.  Thanks James for this photo.

Pub stop at The Troyville Hotel.  The moment we all became zombies…

If MacGyver wrote a blog…

MacGyver’s blog would probably also feature things like cooking a feast for your friends with whatever is in your fridge and garage, a tutorial on how your scarf, mascara and iPhone cover can help you escape a broken down lift, and ten ways your braided friendship bracelets could save your life.  I do love me some D.I.Y.

DIY One, DIY Two-Five.

This weekend’s ghost tour post coming just now.

PS. I made curtains out of scarves.  You can too!
