A bit of a delayed posting on my part, but sometimes life just gets in the way, you know what I mean…
We don’t do things in half measures on this side of the world, and that totally applies to our weather. The transition from summer to winter is similar to being in a dark room and someone throwing the light switch on! Spring, Autumn/Fall….me, I do not know what these seasons are, I just know hot and cold. And right now, it’s all hot!
This weekend the summer skirts where out in full force, the drop-tops were flossing on the roads and predictably, a braai (barbeque) was thrown and plenty of food and drink was had!
Today for the first time since I’ve arrived smack-dab in the middle of a supposedly mild jozi winter, I am not wearing my standard black stockings with my pencil skirt. I am looking at my sickly-yellow looking legs thinking; a) I really need to get some sun soon and b) A trip down to the local beautician for a touch-up wax probably wouldn’t go amiss either :-)
There was lots of confusion on this side of the world as to how Jacob Zuma had managed to get Gwen to name her offspring after him, hahaha. However, it has come to light that Zuma is infact the name of some popular computer game and a beach in Malibu. Eish, either way its still freaking strange, right up there with Pilot Inspecktor and Apple!
Shining Estelle: She brought us the smash hit “American Boy”, although a lot of us loved her way before Kanye knew who she was. But I have to give props to Kanye, John Legend and Estelle of course, ‘cause now that I’ve got my hands on the whole album I am in LURVE with it. I may just have a girl-crush on Estelle, she’s too cool for school man!.
The track I can’t get enough of at the moment is, “More than Friends.” There is a killah lyric in it that cracks me up, it goes like this:
I would be working at the check-out line,
At the liquor store, the picture show
Let me give you a piece of my mind.”
