Good morning!!


Last night was a late night. Only got home at 11:30 pm.

And it was almost a disaster. Because i had an altercation with the ticket issuer. The way things work here in Africa is that the customer is indeed NOT always king. Especially if the customer is white and a stinky attitude. The guy behind the counter just pulled his head between his shoulders, tightened on the bit like a horse, and just point blank refused to help me. I nearly threw my phone at him.Nearly. I would never do THAT to my baby!! But ooh boy. I was irked. And then, at the supper spot. They did not have small ribs for my supper. It nearly went downhill from there, but the poor waiter made a plan, and I got my ribs after all πŸ˜‰

But the show was wonderful. Absolutely lovely!!

The scene changes were smooth, and very minimalistic, but it made the whole stage change in a question of seconds. The dancing was out of this world, and even though the dialogue was sometimes corny – it being an 80’s movie, the memories it brought back was not so corny πŸ˜‰

All in all, not a wasted evening. I fiddled with the hair. Put extra dark on my eyes, lipstick, perfume, actual jewelerry, and the LBD looked much better at home than it did in the fitting room!! Of course, this morning, the legs are feeling the high heeled walking, but it’s all good – I looked and felt great!

The talk did not happen yesterday. Maybe it will happen today. But not before I get the old man’s letter fixed!

Well, the robot at Allandale is still out. So is the stuff up at Bekker, but, because this is South Africa, it will be weeks before it’s fixed, and screw the stupid people trying to get to work. So, extra time needs to be allocated for travelling – because we all like it so much to waste more than an hour driving 20 km’s…

Let the feeding begin…

Long days and pleasant nights…

The Buffalo Theory

A herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.

This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers, and that’s why beer is so GOOD for you!

  1. Turned out ‘not too bad’… πŸ˜‰
    I love stage plays… almost any stage play will do. There’s something really great about ‘actual’ real live flesh and blood bodies performing in front of you; especially if they happen to be good at what they do… Luv dancing… luv great dancing even more..!

    • Not much beats great dancing, I agree. And these folks were very well practiced in their craft.
      I don’t get to go to stage performances as often as I’d like – it’s quite an expensive exercise in my neck of the woods, but it’s always worth the few extra bucks you pay for it πŸ˜‰

    • Well, since I’m a difficult person, there’s invariably spots of bother Esperanza πŸ˜‰
      I shoot myself in the foot with my attitude, I know, but hey – it’s what I do πŸ™‚
      But the evening was great nevertheless πŸ˜‰

    • I don’t have to – highway is a longer distance to work than the R511. So I’m sorted – if the robots don’t break down!!!
      I’m thinking i should get my motorbike sorted as soon as I can πŸ˜‰

  2. Sounds like you had a great time! πŸ™‚
    As for the traffic, that’s basically the time it takes me on a normal day to get to our offices if everything goes smoothly :-/

    Replace “beer” with “red wine” and I think – no I know πŸ˜‰ – I’ve got the most efficient brain in Africa πŸ™‚ Which sadly isn’t saying all that much, but nevertheless πŸ˜†
