Flamjangled – Without Pictures

Flamjangled – Without Pictures

The Flamjangled Tea Party Flamjangled. This was undoubtedly one of the absolute best festivals I have ever been to. The location is ideal: just 20 minutes out of Cape Town. The setting is rad, with lots of authentic Gypsy stalls and stands, a dam to swim in and a huge circus-type shade cloth providing protection […]

40 Days of Giving (a damn)

40 Days of Giving (a damn)

Lent started on Wednesday and traditionally one gives something up for the 40 days leading up to Easter as a sacrifice and show of good faith. I was thinking about what I could possibly give up… Coffee? Tea? I don’t drink either (I know, I know). My BlackBerry? Not only too painful, but also impractical. […]

Ze Germans vs Ze Russians

Ze Germans vs Ze Russians

I love food. I love it so much, that I spend most of my time talking about it… and the rest of my time thinking about it. I imagine that my thoughts regarding food, must amount to boys thoughts about chests…of the female variety. Nash loves food as much as I do. How he manages […]

The Universe Strikes Back

The Universe Strikes Back

Let me explain to you how the Universe works. You cannot have it all. I for instance, have lovely feet. Bum? Not so much. That’s how the Universe keeps you human. This week is a very good example of the Universe playing with my emotions. Monday was red and white and wonderful all over. My […]

A Hug Life is better than A Thug Life

Thanks to Bouwer Bosch for the catchy title. Yesterday I was hanging out with The Personal Trainer (TPT). When I said something funny, he threw back his head, let out a guffaw and flung his fist toward my general chest area before stopping mid-air, knuckles facing me. Was he about to punch me in the […]
