Ball & bums

I went to a ball last night! Look, here's a photo of me and a colleague all dressed up. We wore fake nails. They took forever to stick on and by the end of the night she'd lost three, and I'd lost two so pulled all the other ones off. But there was a solid hour or two in there where we looked like proper ladies.

(Her face doesn't actually look like that, I have blurred it out in Paint to Protect Privacy.)


Significantly later in the evening.

Also, last night in conversation it came up that some people just have really cold bums, and I wanted to see if anyone else has come across said bums (not a pun). Here's how the conversation went:

Friend's pregnant wife: "...and if I went, it would be cold."
Friend: "Do you get cold? When you're pregnant?"
Wife: "...yes. You're not like a whale, all covered in blubber."
Friend: "Oh. I thought, because you have another person..."
Wife: "Not how it works."
Friend: "Oh. But you're always warm when you're spooning!"

Friend: "Although, some people just seem to have really cold bums. Have you ever noticed that?"

And I thought about it and realised yes, yes I have. Have you guys ever been in the position where you are spooning (and you are the big spoon, and both the spoons are nude spoons), and you notice that the other person has an inexplicably cold bottom, and it never warms up?

I think these people are some sort of bum vampires. Too tired to develop that theory any further right now but I'm pretty sure I'm right. Be wary of them.

Actually Ri while you're here I meant to ask you, do I have a cold bum? Do you remember? Am I... a BUM VAMPIRE? Seriously, this is kind of bothering me.

I confess: I'm a lap freezer.

My massage therapist friend commented my cold bum the other day in a purely clinical kind of way during a massage. She said something about it's from sitting all day and it's poor circulation. How the hell do you fix that????

She’s very good by the way and if you are in Christchurch email me and I’ll put you in contact – almost said hook you up!

I think some people wear a layer of fat - like a wet suit. So it basically insulates them, and they feel warm on the inside, but the outside remains cold to the touch.

More photos of your friend please!

e - you are creepy.

Phil said...

Are you both wearing the same frock - different colour?

Very nice dress. You did look like a proper lady. :)

I can't say that I've ever noticed the cold bum thing. But now I'll be on the lookout.
