CvD in Chapter Change… This Edition – Becoming a Mom

Hey my lovelies!!

I know it’s been FOREVER and I do apologize for being AWOL the last while.  The past few months have been insane and I’ve gone from insane party girl, to calming down and settling a bit to my new chapter as *le pregnant ladaeh.

I’m in my 10th week and although it came as a shock at first, I’m over the moon with joy! Can you imagine my own little punk prince or princess? EDIBLE!!

At the moment I’m in the can’t-stomach-any-smell faze, where morning sickness feels like it’s pneumonia and everything hurts, but everyone tells me that from 12 weeks on it’s the best. That’s when you start to feel the flutters of little life dancing and headbanging inside your belly. I can’t wait!!

Sorry that I’m going a bit gooey on you guys, but the feminine little fairy within me is super happy and to top it off, I’m going to be taking on a lot of awesome challenges in times to come. I can’t wait to share it with you all, because you’ll all be part of the awesome journey.

Hope to blog again soon.

Luv

CvD

Tequila Tuesday: Because Alcohol is as important as Tattoos and Tittays too

Hey darlings, again, I know it’s not Tuesday, but shit needs to be done on this blog.

As you will now notice, I’m starting a new Tuesday called Tequila Tuesday.

So I’m thinking of educating people on different types of Alcohol on these days, where they come from, what they are made of etc. I made the stupid mistake (while intoxicated, obviously) of telling people that Vodka is made out of water.

*crickets*

Yea, I dunno where I got that either.

So what is every popular alcohol  (well the ones I know of) made of?

Image

Courtesy of Wikipedia, I managed to find a few:

  • Vodka is a distilled beverage composed primarily of water (HA!! I was RIGHT! Fuck you!) and ethanol, sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Vodka is made by the distillation of fermented substances such as grains, potatoes, or sometimes fruits or sugar.
  • Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 kilometres (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.
  • Cane is either of two genera of tall, perennial grasses with flexible, woody stalks from the family Poaceae, that grow throughout the world. The genera include species of bamboo. The genus Arundo is native from the Mediterranean region to the Far East. Arundinaria is found in the New World. Cane commonly grows in large riparian stands known as canebrakes, found in toponyms throughout the Southern and Far Western United States; they are much like the tules of California.
  • Whisky or whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Different grains are used for different varieties, including barley, malted barley, rye, malted rye, wheat, and corn. Whisky is typically aged in wooden casks, made generally of charred white oak. Whisky is a strictly regulated spirit worldwide with many classes and types. The typical unifying characteristics of the different classes and types are the fermentation of grains, distillation, and aging in wooden barrels.
  • Brandy is a spirit produced by distilling wine. Brandy generally contains 35–60% alcohol by volume (70–120 US proof) and is typically taken as an after-dinner drink. Some brandies are aged in wooden casks, while some are simply coloured with caramel colouring to imitate the effect of such aging (and some brandies are produced using a combination of both aging and colouring).
  • Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Yeast consumes the sugars in the grapes and converts them into alcohol. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different types of wine. The well-known variations result from the very complex interactions between the biochemical development of the fruit, reactions involved in fermentation, and human intervention in the overall process. The final product may contain tens of thousands of chemical compounds in amounts varying from a few percent to a few parts per billion.
  • Moonshine (In South Africa known as Mampoer), also known as white lightning, mountain dew, hooch or Tennessee white whiskey, is a high-proof distilled spirit, generally produced illicitly. The word is believed to derive from the term “moonrakers” used for early English smugglers and the clandestine (i.e., by the light of the moon) nature of the operations of illegal Appalachian distillers who produced and distributed whiskey.
  • Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). From its earliest beginnings in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved over the course of a millennium from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Today, the gin category is one of the most popular and widely distributed range of spirits, and is represented by products of various origins, styles, and flavor profiles that all revolve around juniper as a common ingredient.
  • Beer is an alcoholic beverage produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat.[1] Most beer is also flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. The preparation of beer is called brewing. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage; it is the third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea. It is thought by some to be the oldest fermented beverage.

And my darlings, there you have it. So next time you play General Knowledge or just think you’re super clever when intoxicated, let this post stay with you.

Happy days!

♥Cherry♥

Tribute Thursday: The Zombies

Ola mi amigos!

Totally kidding, I have no idea how to speak Spanish and when fans send me emails in Spanish then Google Translate is my friend. So no. I do speak English and Afrikaans and that’s it.

Anyway back to my point. So today is the 21st of December 2012 and according to the Mayan Calendar, we’re all supposed to die today. Obviously this is complete bullshit, but I like to get people’s knickers into knots and make them think that I’m serious when I say I can’t wait for the Zombie Apocalypse.  Here’s the thing. I joke. I make funny:

joke

  [ johk]  Show IPA noun, verb, joked, jok·ing.

noun

1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or aprankish act: He tells very funny jokes. She played a joke on him.
So today’s tribute is for the ones that I was looking forward to seeing, but never got to:
The Zombies
Zombies
Thing is, the end of the world could have been provoked by zombies, natural disasters, aliens, robots, Dr Evil, etc, but my favourite out of everything that could have happened has GOT to be the zombies. Imagine the hordes of people who irritate you on a daily basis turning into zombies. You’d have a very good excuse to bash them in the face then, amIright? lol
The idea of the zombie came from George A. Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead and has since then the zombie has been about as famous as the vampire, the mummy, the werewolf and various other nightmares. Hopefully Stephanie Meyer won’t make them sparkle in another one of her novels (lol).
SO if you’re feeling in the mood to watch zombie movies in the spirit of the world apparently ending, check these out, they’re the best I’ve seen:
  • 28 Days Later
  • The Cabin in the Woods (SUCH a random movie, so yea…)
  • Dawn of the Dead
  • Day of the Dead
  • I am Legend
  • Night of the Living Dead (All of them)
  • Pet Cemetery (Both)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
  • Resident Evil (All of them)
  • Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • The Walking Dead (TV Show)

For a longer list of things to watch, check out the List of Zombie Films on Wikipedia here:

Also enjoy some awesome youtube clips I found of my little friends doing their thang and scaring the bejeepers out of Americans. Gotta love it!

Happy Apocalypsing!

Just a little blog to tell you what I’ve been up to and why I’ve been so quiet… also, LADY GAGA again

Sooo I’ve been on the down-low for quite a while and I just want to apologize to all my gorgeous followers for still sticking around, you guys are awesome!

Things have been super hectic in my life, getting my own place, working 2 jobs and modelling, and to top it off, the festive season has arrived, so I’ve got family around and and and… lol

To those of you who wanted to know about the Lady Gaga show, it was AMAZING!!!! She is by far the best performer I’ve seen live! Crazy, funny and sweet and can put any broadway musical to shame with her amazing stage presence.

If anybody has any photographs from the show, please feel free to send them to me! I loved it soooo much.

WTF Wednesday: Me going crazy as Gaga lands in South Africa

Good morning my cherries and daggers!!

OK so my WTF Wednesday is about the fact that I almost had a mild seizure last night when I heard that Mother Monster has arrived in South Africa…

I mean I’m such a retard. How the hell was I expecting her to perform without arriving in the country first? Guess I just didn’t think about it.

Anyway I’m so excited!!! I’m sitting and wiggling around my seat like I’ve got ants in my pants, listening to Lady Gaga while I drink my chocolate coffee…

Friday definitely can’t come ANY sooner!! Got my golden circle ticket (I’m surprised I haven’t framed it yet lol…), got half my outfit ready (even though I’m moving and everything’s a mess) AND got my camera in my handbag. FRIDAY IS GOING TO BE EPIC!!!!

Even though I have to admit that Born This Way is not my favourite album of Gaga, I would probably still eat up every single song like it’s my favourite brand of chocolate! My favourite songs on the album being Alejandro, Judas and You and I.

My lovelies, expect photies galore on Manic Monday!

Have a fab hump day!

♥Cherry♥

Tattoo Tuesday: Lady Gaga tattoos

Helloooo my darlings!

Fandom tattoos. I’m not sure if I get them. I mean sure, I get getting a Metallica logo tattoo because they’ve been around for 70 million years and counting. I even get getting a Rolling Stone tattoo. But I don’t get a “Die Antwoord” tattoo or a Katy Perry one. That’s just me. Lady Gaga tattoos? I’m not sure of…

What do you guys think?

Happy Tuesday!

♥Cherry♥

Manic Monday: Going Gaga this weekend

Ola my lovelies!

SO as some of you might or might not know, I’m a huge Little Monster. I’m a massive Lady Gaga fan, and yes to my metal fans, I know this may come as a shock to you, but please sit down, have a glass of vodka on the rocks and just get over it!

What I love about this bitch is her devotion to her fans, her strong attitude towards equality and yes, even I rock out to her music!

This weekend she’s going to perform her “Born This Way Ball” at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, South Africa and of course me and many of my gay friends are going with me to rock out to “Judas”, “You and I” and “Born this Way”.

If you’re in Joburg this weekend and you haven’t gotten a ticket yet, you suck. Officially. BUT if you wanna be part of the cool crowd, you can buy a ticket here, like right now:

http://online.computicket.com/web/event/lady_gaga/621164714//referer:-highlights-index-0-0-0-grid-

I promise to dress absolutely outrageous, carry on extremely ridiculously and take lots and lots of manic pictures and maybe even a video or two.

Hope to see you there…

Have a fabulous week!

♥Cherry♥
