Damn Schpat and his new flash game !!!

Salaam and good evening dear reader(s).

My life has been suprisingly eventful over the last few days. Went up to Durban to visit my sibling and help my pater pick out some new electronic gadgets to replace those pilfered from our house earlier this year. The new DVD hard-drive recorder is super shiny and time shift is soooo cool - you can pause TV :)

Also my new computer was picked up (a new and delightful P4 3GHz) but unfortunately I seem to be the statistical variation and it is baffling my brother and now the engineers. So I am again momentarily computer free except for my Dad's lap top. But soon. Mwahahahaha.

Have also been exercising me l33t tutoring sk33lz and helping a friend study for her upcoming anatomy and physiology paper (she's studying to be a medical rep).

This may not be particularly exciting to you my humble followers, but for me it's all good.

OK. That's it.

P.S. Schpat - that new Flash game is cool and addictive !

In the news recently...

I must confess to being somewhat confused when my eye caught the frontpage headline of our local community newspaper The South Coast Herald. This was what caught my eye: 'Possessed' baby has a brother. After doing a bit of qestioning of the locals (I was still in Cape Town when the first installment of the story ran) I found out that the child in question (a baby of about 8 months) had been taken from her parents by the police after the neighbour reported them. It appears that they believed the child to be possessed and following the recommendations of a 'spiritual' advisor had tied the baby up with their puppy in the back yard - apparently the theory being that any evil spirits inhabiting the kid would possibly move to the puppy. Now mom has given birth to a new baby and wants custody. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry to be perfectly honest.

In response to d@vid's comment on my last post - the black template suits my nefarious purposes better than any of the others. Plus, why break a trend ;)

The beginning of the end

Greetings, salutations and sundry hellos....

It's not too late to turn back. Ok - don't say I didn't warn you.

But all jokes aside I have finally succumbed to peer pressure and set up a blog. I hope that over time this will develop into an interesting and often amusing read for the general public. Greetings to MoonFlake, ZenStar and Schpat - good friends and also recommended reads for you.

The call of my online crosswords at call and I must obey.

So for now - adieu.
