Honey Panda Weddings @ Sunday, February 28, 2016
Tuesday 16th February
Tram train bus. A meeting, food related it's something coming up for winter. Bus bus, oh look we're outside the studio and I can see the mormans are here, won't drop in just to say hi though, tram tram. Some days are spent traveling. This is one of them. No phone or Internet for the past week means lots of reading the limited books I haven't read, white pages and walking to the local shops where there's a 50c per 20 seconds pay phone. How did we survive before technology?
It felt odd to go by the studio and not go in. So we stopped by the local salsa for taco Tuesday. The staff were warm and friendly, unlike our visit to the city one. Where they disapproved our knowledge of taco Tuesday and treated us as second rate citizens. Perhaps one week we'll return for taco Tuesday and eat in.
Should the uniformed and suits get up for those older?
It depends. If you're my mother's age no. If it's granny yes.
Ugg I don't like old people! Granny told me in a judging manner to get up for mother. Ma'am I pay full fare and got on before the busier stop to get a seat. I have weak ankles and fall almost ever single time on the tram. It's to the point where I bring a big plastic bag (dry clean only) and sit on that if travelling during peak hours. #judgingyou
Morman asked me something strange last night, other than the usual pleasantries we don't talk. We're simply two people in the same building who encounter each other on the lift.
He asked me from his list of some of my usuals who my favorite was. "What makes you think you're not my favorite?" XD Nope he's a back up. My favorite? Idk I have favourites. I like people who smell nice and have nice hands. One of my favs sweats like crazy, he smells, but he's really really nice.
"Who's your favorite?"
"My wife" he replied automatically. My guess would have been Joanne*, his regular other than his mother in law.
So who is my favourite? I have a couple (I think this word extends to the number three) :P
City. A meeting out of the city. Back to the city. Dessert and a stroll to walk it off.
Honey toast within the last 6mths I've seen popping up at asian cafes, for around $20. That's expensive. But then I saw a $9 offer in scoopon, and jas was happy to share.
A stroll by the yarra followed to check out the lit up inflatables, we got all but one, because it faced the river and I had the wrong lens, it was too far.
10.30am meeting. I made it!! Slept in but still made it within the acceptable time frame. Had my face done for passport photos. Sadly it didn't involve purple lipstick, but a more mainstream "no makeup" natural look. My make up artists were great and 12hr+ later the makeup isn't highlighting my dry skin and the textures.
Despite actually opening on a Saturday last December, Bankara Ramen just had their grand opening today, and we were lucky enough to find out about it 45mins after it happened. No.23. First 50 get a gift with purchase, a bottle of sake. As we already had lunch we stopped for a snack, deep fried chicken.
Back to the office where some work got done, the part that I remembered to bring with me... coffee then off to Docklands to get pictures of more inflatables. As it wasn't dark they didn't look as impressive as yesterday's set, it was a bit chilly out there.
We were going to go catch them all and get the last one, pandas on the dock facing the wrong way, but made a "quick" stop by Myer. I'm after a new bag, like with shoes I'm likely to reorder and get the usual, I like looking at bags but the nice ones are tiny, and being tiny the big ones overwhelm me.
Next to bags were shoes and we came across Hush Puppies! I was after them last month but all the stores were far far away. The SA was great, and I picked a pair of Mary Janes, Peggy would approve. :P My size was a bit tight, and the next up needed gel pads. We're hoping the gels would make it perfect, as the width is great. Update - Returned them thanks to my special needs feet, the left one refused to stay on the base and leans right.
The other shoes I bought last month have some issues, the black ones are very thin compared to what I'm used to. And both the black and glitter squish up my toes and have yet to stretch. The black is very slippery on wood too! The glitter, the front has yet to stretch but the back has, so it's boat shaped or rather like a loaf. So now the back is too big and the front still too tight! The shop was not happy, so naturally I called HQ who gave me a 50% refund.
Another year, another wedding season and expo. Once you've seen two I'm telling you you've seen them all. Pick a good one though. Back in the olden days I suppose this would have been great in a small town, though it would be odd that you didn't know everyone already! But with the internet I prefer to do my meet & greet online, ask for quotes and things like that - without having to talk to people. :P
It's beautiful, I'd love to make a mini one that serves just one.
Today I am thankful that my career doesn't solely depend on my personality and being a people person. I'd be terrified to be a real estate agent, celebrant or anything with that degree of human interaction! Instead I do weekly meetings and mainly work online, and in the background.
How was your week?
