…has it been?
Almost a week since I posted – not so good.
Probably because not all that much has happened.
I got the job. Minimum wage – R 35 an hour. Translates to around 3.50 $. Cool!! Not much at all. It would seem that people are only prepared to pay monkey salaries, but they want lemurs to work for them, not monkeys. Well, this guy’s getting a chimp, and he’s still only paying a blue assed monkey’s pay, but I’ll do the job, quickly and efficiently. Not like it’s brain surgery or anything like that, and it will supplement the bit I do have. Might be able to coast until end August if I don’t spend a lot.
Going to try my hand at selling stuff online. Either until I find a job worth doing for money worth having, or until me and Mr P can start a shop of our own. Time will tell. And I do have a whole bucket load full of stuff that I don’t use, that other people might want – either because they’re serious collectors, or because they just like old stuff the way I do.
Things on the Mr P front is not going too bad. We’re still talking daily, when he does visit me, we talk, and talk and talk some more – apparently I like talking 🙂 Spent the night at his place last night. Don’t think I’m doing that again anytime soon!! He sleeps on a bloody brick! At least, that’s what it feels like to me! When I woke up this morning I had quite a hard time getting the kinks and chinks out of my poor belaboured back!! But it was a good visit nevertheless. For all it’s faults though, my house is still quite a bit more comfortable than his, so I think we’ll keep the visiting to my spot. And if I do visit him, I don’t know that I will spend the night again. Either that, or I’ll have to get used to sleeping on a rock. As I told him this morning – I’ve slept on rocks that were softer 😉
It would seem that our darling beloved free government is going to get their money’s worth either way. They can’t seem to get people to register for e tolling, so they just make petrol more expensive, making everything else more expensive and in the process, getting more tax on just about everything. The more I live in this suckheap, the more I realise that it’s time to go away before they completely kill any way of making a living.
Maybe I should see what the Botswana government has on offer. I heard through the grapevine that they are more than willing to import whities from the suckheap to go and farm the land in Botswana. There it’s not about your colour, but about your willingness to work and earn. And as long as there are people, they’ll have to eat, and if you won’t be robbed blind the way you are in the suckheap, both legally through taxes and illegally through criminal activity, you might actually be able to make some kind of living. Will give me a chance to try and live completely off the land, making my own stuff, living the simple life, out of the ratrace.
Anyhow. I have to now catch up with everything I’ve missed out on while I was following other avenues. Hope your day is progressing swimmingly!!
