Some stuff

This is my new Jo’burg skyline key holder, hammered into one of my walls with grace and just a bit of excess force. It is a ‘Luv Jozi’ item and when I saw it, I couldn’t resist paying far too much for it and for a soft, warm black hoodie also featuring my city’s skyline.

This is the packaging of THE BEST SHOWER CAP IN THE WORLD!!!!!! It is from Muji in London, very kindly bought for me by the Beagle.

The fact I get to wear a bonnet every night makes me happy. The fact that my hair remains dry makes me happier. The fact that I look like a loser spinster when wearing it makes me less happy. Ah well, whaddayagonnado?

What amuses me is that despite Muji being a Japanese retail company, according to the Interweb, this bonnet of mine was made in China.

And finally, this was a sight encountered at the airport at 7.45 yesterday. This is a woman wearing powder blue, too-tight tracksuit pants and matching Crocs.

Any pants that show butt crack that clearly should be burnt.

Any woman who allows herself to look like that in public, no matter how early it is in the morning, needs to emigrate to a land where a Wallmart is within slithering distance.

Shudder.

    Ok, the pants are bad. But she wouldn’t even make it into the top 100 on http://www.peopleofwalmart.com list of fashion freaks. You need to either be a man wearing stiletto boots and a cowboy hat, a very large woman wearing a three-year old child’s swimsuit or a Bjork wannabe to score up there.

    I want a Jhb skyline key thingey. AWESOME.

    I totally love People of Walmart.
    In fact, let me go check ’em out right now.
    You’re right … this powder-blue tracksuit pant-ed nightmare doesn’t even begin to compare!

    What a nasty thing to have to see that early in the morning – I hope you are feeling better? As for the showercap from Muji being made in Japan, I bought Hello Kitty stuff in Japan – made in China!!

    Totally nasty, I don’t think I have recovered yet Charm.
    Hello Kitty made in China… hahaha. I bought a couple of Hello Kitty Pez dispensers at Spar the other day. They are totally cool.

    I LOVE that Joburg skyline keyholder.

    Beagle is a good person for bringing you back anything from Muji – it’s a fab fab shop.

    As for that sight that can’t be unseen… shudders! We should’ve paid her to strut through fashion week just to hear the divas shriek 🙂

    The Beagle is indeed a good person – my muji shower bonnet is the best shower bonnet I’ve ever used. I look forward to seeing the shop myself someday.

    hahah, indeed, the sight that can’t be unseen. Excuse me now, I need to vomit after having looked at that photo again…
