Gym Ninja is back after a very enjoyable birthday yesterday. Yes, GN is one of those people who love the birthday fuss. Gifts although welcome, are not the real reason she loves her birthday. It is that 1 day of attention that she finds so wonderful. Anyway, yesterday was a fantastic birthday...
Firstly, she went to visit her family & received her presents. Always fun! Her sister had made her a birthday cake too. Now Gym Ninja does not eat cake, but her family do hence the huge masterpiece that awaited her...apparently this was a fondant icing replica of Gym Ninja!
They weren't kidding when they described it as 'sea bass'. They are REALLY spoiling her with that lemon! Gym Ninja kind of thought it may have had something else on the plate! But wait! She'd ordered her spinach remember....??
Look. Let us just say, that not only was the sea bass delicious, it was also EXTREMELY waist-friendly! NO chance of breaking anyone's diet in here! (plus a good job GN had a protein bar in her bag!)
Now GN knows what you are all wondering? Did she break her no-alcohol rule? Well yes, she decided to treat herself to one alcoholic drink, and went to the bar to order a single malt.
GN: "Hi-what single malts do you have please?"
Barman: "We have this (points to one 12 year old single malt) and this one (points at a 12 year old single malt that is Japanese)."
Gym Ninja is none the wiser!
GN"What do you recommend?"
Barman: "I like this one actually-would you care to try it?" He enquires, wafting the Japanese bottle at her.
Gym Ninja nods, and watches as the barman grabs a glass and decants the tiniest amount of whisky into the glass possible. She tries it, and it rips the back of her throat off.
GN:" I'll have that please, on the rocks".
As she is paying an EXTORTIONATE amount of cash for this shot of whisky (whilst lookig for Dick Turpin to turn up!) the barman looks at her and smiles as he says,
"I must admit, I'm impressed when a lady orders a single malt".
IMMEDIATELY, his colleague blurts out,
"We don't actually KNOW if she's a lady yet do we?" *he smirks and elbows his colleague as he winks at GN*
WTF? Does Gym Ninja look like Dial-A-Slapper???
Having had a fantastic night and also received her birthday dessert of lemon sorbet (See? GN is a healthy girl!) which did actually remind GN of something else (see if you can guess what??), they headed off into the night....
The Birthday Sorbet!!!!
See you all tomorrow!!!!!!!
