Deafinitely Girly has news!
*catches her breath and squeals
She’s has won a competition!
It’s making Deafinitely Girly talk like Dobby from Harry Potter.
Erm, anyway – today Deafinitely Girly is struggling somewhat after a rather adventurous night out. It started very civilised in my favourite Thai restaurant with Snowboarding Boy. I stole his scallops as they were very good.
Then, we went to an Austrian bar in Notting Hill to meet Friend Who Knows Big Words and co, and it all went down hill from there. Do you know they serve litre tankards of beer there? They were so heavy that I burnt calories and built muscle just lifting one – and I lifted one many times.
It’s a truly crazy place. There is karaoke but only songs from The Sound of Music are sung, with the occasional Bohemian Rhapsody thrown in. I was desperate to sing something but I don’t know the words to songs – unless I actually sit down and learn them – and it wasn’t the kind of karaoke where the words show up.
Instead, I got talking to an old man who was singing and attempted to sing along without knowing the words, which went something like this…
Mamaaaa, just killed a man, dedededee-de-de head, pulled the trigger now he’s dead. Mama lalalala-lala
Thankfully, the litre tankards of beer numbed the hearing of poor Snowboarding Boy who was sat right beside me.
I have a sore head. Which makes for a very tricky Thankful Friday.
Ah yes, I remember now though, I am thankful for the fact I have won a competition. I’m going to wait until Monday before telling you all about it though as that’s when I find out more.
One more thing I’m thankful for, is Onion Soup Mate – she’s coming to visit this weekend. There will be no onion soup as she’s sleeping in my room.
Nuff said really.
I’m off to dance around the office with glee about winning this competition, before having a nice cup of tea and a sit down.
