Some walking and talking but not walking the talk

Today I walked about 10km as Colourful Canine II. This is because the original Colour Canine was registered twice for the walk, and I was not registered at all, despite paying the fee and spending a goodly amount of time online, registering.  Thus, organisational ineptitude ensured that both the Colourful Canines put on their sneakers and multi-branded official race T-shirts, and walked.

It was fun and good for us and we got to eat boerewors rolls with lots of mustard and tomato sauce.

I like days like today!

    Sounds like fun. I would have taken the chance to do all sorts of things in her name and leave the blame with her 😉

    Hard Spear, Colourful Canine is the best mate. See below for details (unfortunately, hyperlinking in the comments section is a skill I know not of. Or of not. Summin’ like that. Now you are in what is known as, da loop.

    Tamara, I like the way you think!! I should have been bad. Shitters, what a missed opportunity.

    Did you do the iThemba Walkathon? So did I! I was in Joburg of the weekend. The organisation was a mess!

    My personal highlight of the day, when the MC (a loud woman who could’ve been a KTV presenter in the 80s) said, “I”m talking to all the straight men out there, isn’t it nice to wear pink without worrying that people will say, ‘Oh gross, look at that guy wearing pink. He must be gay’.”

    Indeed, Benny, it was that very walkathon and, my god, their organisational skills need work! The only reason I was able to participate in the event after they couldn’t tell me whether or not I was registered because their website was down TWO DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT, was because Colourful Canine was accidentally registered twice.

    HAHAHAHAHAH, I missed that gem by the MC. She was bloody annoying. I’d like to think it was because the might have taken a blow to the head by a couple of tall pink feather dusters being waved about, but I think we all know better.

    The site was ridiculous – it kept bombing when my friends and I tried to include a donation in our payment. Eventually we could only register minus donation.

    How lethal were those feather dusters? I did get wacked on the head by one of them.

    The MC was beyond crazy! On several ocassions I said: WHO gave this woman a microphone.

    I also had a boerie roll and I even splashed out on a cream soda – CHAMPION breakfast!

  7. Don't Believe a Word I Write says:

    ooooh, excellent excellent re the creme soda and boerie roll…drool, I could eat another right now!!
    hah, you were whacked by one of the feather dusters? I just had children cutting diagonally across me for much of the walk.

    That’s so funny about the MC. Whata chop. I have a friend who did the walk and she raved abotu the organisation. Wonder what she was comparing it to? The Zim elections, maybe?

  9. Don't Believe a Word I Write says:

    Oi vey, it does make one wonder. The five km walk was meant to start about either half an hour or an hour after the 8km walk, but the start ran so late that we all ended up going at the same time – bloody annoying!
