SB: So…now that I have permanent employ, I was thinking that at the end of this year, I’ll go overseas.
Peas: Oh.
(deathly pause)
Then perhaps we should call it quits now, to avoid the overly-dramatic and circumstantial break-up which will only be exacerbated by irrational emotion at the end.
SB: Why? Wouldn’t you come with me?
Peas: What?
SB: I thought you said you wanted to go overseas?
Peas: Well I do…but I haven’t put a timeframe on it. And I give sweet fanny apples for the whole London-like-the-rest-of-South-Africa exodus vibe.
SB: I’ve done London. Like you I want to work in a strange place, with strange languages and strange people.
Peas: (warming to this idea instantly) Now that I can do. Like Berlin. Learn German and hang with punk-goth underground wienerschnitzel-adoring people.
SB: I was thinking more along the lines of…Russia.
Peas: Beg pardon?
SB: Russia. You know, furry hats, vodka, Bolshoi ballet.
Peas: Russia. Vhere vould I vurk, Glastnost Veekly?
SB: Pretty much.
Peas: They probably listen to a lot of Tchaik there too.
SB: Probably.
Peas: Sold. Let’s see if we last that long first, but otherwise I’m in.

Peas on Toast living in Russia. I sense my soap opera lifestyle taking on a vodka-induced, freeze-my-doondies-off turn.

Prost.

(It's the Blog Awards tonight! *excitement*)

Mmmm... I have russian blood so would agree that a mix of vodka and fur would be a wonderful experience!

As for the Blog Awards - goodluck! - where can we find the results tomorrow?

Peas on Toast said...

Thanks Rays. I'm up against some stiff competition, so I'm not expecting anything, but the event should be a laugh.

Fur and vodka, now that I can do.

Marc said...

tchaikovsky & now russia....sjoe...u really getting into this thing hey...

good luck for tonight...drink to much, and torment the chump boys, they need it.have fun now

ATW said...

cool, well it will be in russia. prompted by all the Tchaik chat I hauled out the only bit that I have and gave it a spin last night (on vinyl that I 'borrowed' from gran!). It was lekker and went down well with cold beers (even better than in the traffic?). ditto with rays on the 'good luck for the ZAbloggies" bit .

Peas on Toast said...

Marc - absolutely! :)
And thanks, THird World Ant and I definitely have a big one tonight. :)

ATW - Wow I am so impressed that you firstly hauled out Tchaik, and secondly enjoyed it. Nice one, and on vinyl too! :) I listened to his Nutcracker Suite in traffic this morning. Twas great.

Jam said...

So COLD!!!!!
Which yes, of course, motivates drinking vast quantities of Vodka...
Thinking of you at the Blog Awards tonight...good luck!

Peas on Toast said...

Thanks Jam! :)

One small thing: Russia is "freeze your tits off" cold. Other than that it sounds incredible, i would love to visit Russia, then come back before it drops below -35 degrees celcius.

Good luck tonight Peas, i may swing past if the planets align.

Rays said...

Ha ha - yeah 'freeze your tits off cold'... why don't you send ol' cleavage-girl there! She'll lose the only advantage she's ever had!

;)

ATW said...

All Peas' talk of foreign travel reminded me of this old post. The Man Who Went Away. Worth the read, promise.

Peas on Toast said...

Billy - my 34 Bs will be covered in fur. Trust me :) Swing on by tonight, apparently its quite a piss up.

Rays - bayuudiful. Perhaps I should get her a one way flight all-expenses paid to Russia. Bitch.

ATW - Will take a look, ta.

Billy said...

Something about the idea of breasts being covered in fur that makes -30 seem bearable, no pun intended.

Peas on Toast said...

Nothing like the feeling of fur against naked breasts..I guess. :)

Billy said...

hmmmm

TheStickWithMeKid said...

Billy needs a -30 deg shower

Peas on Toast said...

Don't we all mate. ;)

She of the handbag said...

Wow wow wow. Russia would be fab - just pretend that your a Bond style russian spy supervixen! Lots of vodka, giant fur hats and 'dahlink':)

It is the question said...

I's say "You're such a tease" - but then I know about your sex life.

Rays said...

Good grief!I saw the results this morning! Congrats and I'm glad I'm the first to do so!
