Golf Hotel

We were lucky enough to be invited to the new Golf 6 launch party. My favourite radio dj was playing. Dj Fresh! It was such a cool night out. I can't wait for tomorrow night when we go out for a proper dance.

So we got another one

Yes we decided to get another animal in the petting zoo. Its a hamster and its a girl. She still doesn't have a name, but we are toying with a few Aztec names.... And Pikachu. Don't like that one!

The truamatic good bye

This morning my boys were very sad to see me leave again. Lucca refused to get off my lap the entire morning and when I finally left, they were in the kitchen howling away like they are being killed off. I hate leaving them in the morning, specially when they are that traumatized by the event. I need to have a job where I work from home, so I can spend time with the dogs. I think this is why Lucca is so tense and always running around like he is being chased. He has abandonment issues that are being heightened by me leaving them in the morning. My poor baby.

Why I dont like cats

This morning our female cat, Tefnut, just strengthened my dislike of cats. I must however admit that I have grown very VERY fond of our two, but in general do not like cats. Tefnut decided to bring her latest toy into the house this morning. She was carrying a mouse in her mouth and tried to hide behind a couch with it. I spotted her and shouted at her to take it outside, and she promptly did. Then I saw her about 20 min later in the alley, playing with the mouse. At first I thought it was ok, a little gross but ok. Until I realised the mouse was still alive and trying desperately to get away. I tried to get the mouse away from her, but she would just grab it and actually growl at me. She ran into the neighbours garden where I could not get to her and continued her torture of the mouse. The poor mouse thought he had struck a lucky break a few times, when she let him go and made him believe he is free to run away. Clearly traumatised and disorientated, he tried to burrow into a rock, only to be picked up by Tefnut, lying on her back and pretending he is a ball of string.

It was the most barbaric thing I have ever seen, and I will not be friends with her for a long time. I have told Tristan to find her a new home, coz i do not want murderers in our house.

As for those "cat people" who are sitting at home reading this and telling me how "natural" it is and it is "natures way"....BULLSHIT!!! You are all trying to justify your own macabre adoration of these brutal acts, and should be ashamed of yourselves. Just because it is in their nature, doesn't mean it cant be beaten out of them, and doesn't mean we have to laugh at it and think it is cute!!!1

Its me

I had a conversation with someone (very close to me) this week. He remarked on how I have so many pet hates and dislikes, and how I so often say that "I hate" something on TV or around me. Then he sort of challenged me to try and find something positive to say about something on TV. Now..... The problem lies in this.

Firstly, if you know me well enough, you will know that I always say what I think, and I mostly think everything around me is inferior to what it should be or what it should be like according to me. I am also very judgmental, and have very strong convictions about most things. Therefore, I will always say what I think, and most of the time I am thinking how stupid other people are and how annoyed I am getting with their stupidity.

Secondly, I am not one of those Tony Robbins wanna be, channeling the secret kinda guys. I will not go around looking for something positive to say even if there is nothing. If there is something nice to be said, I will say it.

So my answer to this person (very close to me), is this. This is who I am. I am a judgemental person with very strong convictions about almost everything. I don't judge people and condemn them, but I do look at most people and things from a cynical point of view. I am not going to change.

Glorious Ascension

Its Ascension day and I got up very early to got to a 07:00 church service this morning. While getting ready, I saw the most spectacular lightning flashes dancing across the sky, illuminating the earth and that blue-white flash. This continued for the better part of an hour and while we were sitting in church. When the pastor started speaking, the thunder started rolling in, loudly, and as confirmation of this day, the heavens opened up and it started to rain. It rained for exactly the same time as the sermon was, and then it stopped. On the way back to the office, I noticed that the ocean was this dark, deep indigo blue, and there were pockets of yellow sunlight over the mountains like in the picture above. After I had taken this picture and drove off, a rainbow started to form in this sunlight pocket. Dark and very vivid colours inside this orange globe. Today the weather is hot but cloudy and rainy. Its like a Durban winter!!!

What a glorious day to celebrate the Lords power.

This weekend

We made a headboard this weekend for our bed. We made it a king size because we are aiming at getting a king size bed in the near future. On Saturday this headboard caused us so much pain, both emotionally and physically. We could not agree on anything regarding to the thing, and I am still bruised. At least now its up and we are happy with it.

Taxi mentality

This is how their minds work. This road is a 2 way road but you are completely screwed if you are coming down this road. The idiots are standing three in a row trying to turn left. Nobody can go past from any side. But where are the cops you may ask. They are too busy writing out fines for parking in town without paying the R3. I hate taxis and I hate the lawlessness we live in. Zuma hope my ass!

Song on my mind

For the past week I have woken up every morning and found myslef singing the same song in my head. I havent heard the song for a while so its not like have heard it and am now repeating it. It has just been on my mind for the past few days. Its the wierdest thing. I don't think about it at all, or hear it anywhere, however when I am in the shower, I find myself singing it in my head. And I cant get it out of my head. No matter how many times I sing it out loud.

And the song I keep on singing in my head......

Last night

I had a dream last night about a guy I used to grow up with. He was about 2 years older than me, but when we were around 4 or 5, we were friends coz we lived in the same street. His sister and my sister were friends, and we were friends. I haven't seen or spoken to him in about 25 years, but I remember we had good times while growing up and living where we did. There were about 6 or 7 of us in the street and the neighbouring street who used to play together after school. Growing up was allot of fun and we had a great time. This morning I feel rather nostalgic about these things and want to be back in that time of my life. No work, no worries, no car accidents, just innocent childlike fun. In fact, this memory of my childhood and of this friend, is the first memory from before 1989 I have had ever. It was a good one, and called up good times.

and anything else I have missed out on....


I hate this feeling of helplessness, when I am doing everything I humanly can to get business, and its just not happening.

The monkey and the king

So here I am once again talking about the government and their poor decision making process. This morning my blood was boiling in the car on the way to work as I was listening to a radio DJ telling us how we have to understand that our president elect (by monkeys) HAS to invite the baboon from across our northern border (Bob Mugabe) to his inauguration, because we have to help them out and support the country. However, what he in his infinite wisdom (Gareth Cliff) neglected to mention, is that the ANC and the government was in the media yesterday and had to explain themselves for not inviting King Letsie III from Lesotho. The interesting thing is the reason they gave for not inviting him. According to the ANC the King does not support and foster a democratic government. He is the ruler of the country and according to them, he jails his opposition party members and he was not elected, he got his position due to tradition.

How bizarre!!!!

Bob Mugabe doesn't just jail his opposition, he tortures and kills them. He does a hell of allot more harm to his own people than King Letsie ever did to his. Lesotho is a very prosperous country with a steady growing economy. Zimbabwe has been raped by Bob and his people.

I just don't understand this government, how their double standards work and what they think when they make decisions. Lord help us all.

Look ma...

Its kat in a glass

Our first night

Last night was our first night at home with Nero. When he first got there, Lucca was ecstatic to see him and he was sort of happy to see Lucca. I think they both thought: 'Nice visit this is'. Then Le Roux left and Nero stayed with us. Very quickly he was out of sorts and running around like he had no place in the world. He didn't want to get onto the couch and lay on the floor staring at us four on the couch. Leche was back to square one where he doesn't leave my side and he was so scared of Nero. Later Nero tried to lick Lucca (in his swimsuit area) and when Lucca growled at him to stop him, he would cry softly to himself.

The worst came last night at bed time. Leche dashed for my side of the bed as he did not want to sleep on the floor close to Nero. Lucca followed shortly and turned the bed into a hothouse. So much so that I could not sleep. Then Lucca kept on getting up and running around, then Nero started running around the house and it was just a pitter patter of feet the whole night. This morning Nero did not want to eat he just lay on the couch looking at us with these sad eyes....Oh and he vomited twice.

Lucca's long lost friend

Tonight Nero (the Whippet) is coming to stay with us for three weeks. Nero's house mate Vegas, is in heat and he cant be anywhere near her. Lucca and Nero grew up together and were the best of friends, but haven't been living together for about 2 years now. Still they almost eat each other up when they see each other. It is going to be very challenging to have three dogs and two cats in the house. I hope Nero is ok with the cats, and I hope we will be ok with three dogs trying to sleep on the bed. What have we agreed to?????

I love the mist


Its looking like winter is finally here. Cape Town is covered in mist today. There is usually a huge stadium here where there is only white now! I am so happy. I am done with summer and revel in the winter cold. I will spare a thought for my little angels, Lucca and Leche who hate the cold wet weather. Also a thought for the elderly who can't cope in this weather. Other than that, bring on winter!

Corporate enviroment

Maybe its just me, but if you work in a corporate environment, for a multi-national company, should you not know what the hell "Travel Procurement" means.....

I can understand most people who are not in a corporate environment not knowing, like I would expect Bruce to look at me like I have swallowed a fly, but even he will probably know what that means. I am so sick and frustrated of phoning corporate companies and speaking to receptionists who haven't got a clue what Procurement means....

Its the people who procure stuff for the fucking company Xolisanzandise!!!!!!!

The child in you

We watched Enchanted last night. Its a Disney movie about a cartoon princess who gets banished to the 'real' world. Tristan wanted to watch it and the whole time I was so bored and annoyed and wanted to change the channel constantly. Tristan on the other hand, was like a little child in a big movie. Clapping his hands when they kissed and getting excited when the witch was beaten. It was very sweet to see him act like that, and he was all smiley and happy after the movie was finished. I still think it was a ball of crap!!!
