1. The moral of the story is never to trust people who delay eating or do not eat at all. Why invite people over for lunch at around 12:00 with the intention of feeding them at only at 15:15, if at all? Why provide absolutely no nibbly bits before then, instead allowing people to become drunker and drunker with nothing to soak up the alcohol and its induced verbal diarrhoea? Christ almighty, what kind of freak believes drinking and eating should be an either-or situation???
2. This is a photograph of the Christmas present given to my friend’s father, by his sister. I can’t begin to fathom why anyone would think this would be a nice gift for anyone, let alone for a highly intelligent, worldly man (who happens to love the whole of his pet cat very much)
3. The latest advertising billboard and TV advertising campaign for the 2010 Soccer World Cup is staggeringly inane. Viewers are asked to buy into the idea that after the event, at least we’ll be able to say that ‘we were there’ when it took place. Despite not liking The Beautiful Game, I am not at all negative towards next year’s soccer world cup. I hope fervently that it will be a success for our country and that in the process of making it so, people get to watch some entertaining games of soccer.
However, to suggest that it is such a defining moment in history that we should attend matches just to be able to tell our children and strangers in the line at the ATM that we were in S.A during the 2010 Soccer World Cup, is ridiculous. Unless I’m at a stadium sitting next to Julius Malema and Jimmy Manyi, who die as a result of a Cristiano Ronaldo instep kick gone awry, I can’t imagine proudly bleating “I was there!!!!”
4. Got a gorgeous pair of Havaiana slip-slops from my dear buddy at her wonderful JewTheist Eve dinner last night.
