15 december 2010 // such ladies…

16 Dec

who would have thought that cocktail parties at the hilton could lead us to laugh so hard and for so long. as stacey already told you, i was her ‘plus one’ at her university party last night – and what a fancy party it was! after eating and drinking for free, we decided it was time to leave (while we could still do it with dignity) and took our high heels for a walk along the viaduct.

We commented on how beautiful the auckland harbour is, especially on warm summer evenings like last night.

later on, after stacey scared off a taxi driver (don’t ask…), we got another friendly driver to drop us off back near her place. during our short journey there, she managed to go all spanish inquisition on him and the roll of questions included details on “taxi drivers christmas parties” because, according to our fellow shoe-per-diem-er, her idea of a taxi company christmas party involves taxi drivers driving around the streets racing each other. yep, she said that.

anyway, i may not be the queen of class but i do have my principles (once again, unlike stacey) and while her bare feet were touching the ground, i got my old faithful flats out of the bag and made my way back home. looking at my grey dress with my brown shoes, i do wonder whether barefeet would have been a better idea.
