Remember that line from dazed and confused, where the cute red headed chick says, "I'm gonna just you know get drunk, maybe get laid or get in a fight"….well that line came to mind after our little scuffle on Saturday night. Scuffle?!!!!! Oh dear, what happened? Hell if I know. One minute we were out having a great time with our friends, dancing to music at the Zuri hotel dance club, the next minute I'm flying through the air while trying to get to my car. Yup. This is India, shit happens and today, three days later I am still not sure why me and a couple of my friends went flying through the air and why we were in the middle of an angry mob. The funny thing is it doesn't even matter. It was still a fun night out, we add another story to the collection of many interesting things that happen here, and when anyone asks me what happened my version is going to include how I whipped out some Uma Thurman Kill Bill moves and karate chopped my way outta there. Okay, so the pic to the left is misleading. Yes, it's a broken foot, no it's not mine. Yes it happened on the night of the scuffle, but no...wish I could tell you it was from my pal doing some serious ass kicking but alas it was from a skipping jaunt to the bar. Yes, she skips, and unfortunately her foot got stepped on accidentally and though she went on to dance the night away, she did so with a very swollen, broken foot. Ouch!
But before the rumble in the jungle on Saturday night there was Friday and Friday started off beautifully with two great morning events. TISB presents Science Day!!!!!!!! Bruce's KG1A class had all kinds of songs and skits about animals and science. It was amazing to hear the knowledge that the kids had about different animals as well as a lot of different science experiments. They explained "sink or float", taught us about what was soluble and insoluble and let's not forget the magic of magnets!!!!
Science day was wonderful and the only damper on the occasion was that John couldn't attend. I look forward to seeing what the kids come up with next year.
Fast forward to after Science Day morning, our awesome friend Lynden hosted a beautiful morning with Kate Bracks, 2011 winner of Masterchef Australia. Kate is every bit as nice and funny and sweet as she is on TV. She shared recipes, experiences of the show, signed autographs and was just the loveliest lady. The women attending were treated to get this, APPLE SHAKES, chocolate yummies of every kind, desert EVERYTHING and a bag of awesome swag! After the demo we enjoyed an incredible lunch there at the Marriott. My gosh, we ate, we laughed, we ate and ate some more. Thank you Lynden and Matthew for hosting such an amazing event, the Marriott Whitefield delivers on a grand scale, I honesty don't know how we survived our first year here without them and the amazing restaurants Matthew has put together in such a short time in Bangalore. Unbelievably amazing.
Have any of you thought of doing fraxel? I have a couple of friends who have had these treatments and their skin looks soooooo good. My skin in pretty badly damaged so I don't expect the same kind of results but if I come even close, one quarter of looking as good as my friends do, I will be a happy lady. My experience so far has been varied. The first time I did it I felt like I was going to jump off the table and run home. It hurt that badly. But….I realize now that the numbing gel probably wasn't applied as long as it should have been, most likely my fault, as I am always in a rush! My last treatment on Friday, the numbing cream really worked, so the pain was less intense, totally do-able but the chaos in that office has me contemplating another doctor for the same treatments.
Looking at the pics I have posted you will see how my face looks almost sunburned in a lot of the pics, that's normal after the treatment. It should dry and peel soon too I believe, and hopefully a few more times of this and I'll have better looking skin. One can hope right? I'll keep you posted.
Leaving you with some pics of our fab night out on Saturday, I swear I love these guys/gals. Bangalore is fun, so much fun with them to hang out with.
