Wake up call

February 19, 2010

Hello non-existant readers!

This is me, call me L. and I’m jumping on the blog wagon! 😀
Basically I have a google reader packed full of food blogs and it just inspired me to get my own.
Though I am not sure if I will start posting my eats on here because a) I am lazy and b) I am really lazy.

I might share some great food pics with you and the occasional day eats but nothing more than that.

I really just want to talk about my day and my life as a veggie.

Starting off with today’s wake up call:

It came at 2 mins to 5am this morning.
The doorbell rang.
WTH?
It surely cannot be the postman!
My bf woke up by the second ring and walked out of the bedroom to check who it was.
He looked out of the window and tried to figure out what’s happening. This person was ringing every door bell in this house (It’s a big house with 4 different flats, we live on the ground floor).
Finally, I heard him shout some name outside.
My bf had enough and spoke through the buzzer and told the guy to get the hell away before he calls the police.
He argued with this guy who wanted to speak to some woman who lives on the top floor.
My bf, accidently pressed the buzzer and the guy got in!!!
So my bf went out of our flat and I heard shouts, I took off my angsty scared to death pants off and put on my DON’T MESS WITH ME-chaps on.
I stormed out and saw my bf trying to push him out of the door, I started yelling at him, GET THE F OUT etc etc
I was on fire!
My bf then, holding the door against the guy called the police.
I could smell the alcohol from where I stood, luckily he wasn’t the violent type, just really PERSISTENT ANNOYING AND DRUNK.
My bf finally managed to push him out of the door and 2 mins later the police came.
They just asked what happened and then went off to look for the guy.

(Later on the day they phoned us back saying they got him and told him off).

Anyway, I was completely awake at 20 past 5 and wasn’t sure if I should go back to bed or not, decided not to as my alarm was set for 6 anyway.

I got dressed for the gym and left at quater past 6 off for some workout.
