Bits and Pieces

For those of you Joburg girl bloggers who aren't on Phillygirl's mailing list, here's advanced notice that the Feb Bloggirls event will be at my place and will be a housewarming do for the usual suspects plus partners and kids. I'll sort out the details closer to the time. But don't forget that the Jan event is just around the corner so go sign up now!

A funny for you that rings true with me:

"Cash, cheque or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to
As she fumbled for her wallet , I noticed a remote control for a
television set in her purse.
"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.
"No," she replied, "but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."

And one or two pics:

A bowl of moth pupae for breakfast, anyone? Taken at the Africa Silks Farm in Mpumalanga. The tour was fascinating - I hadn't realised quite how labour-intensive silk farming is!

A view through the veil - taken from underneath the Bridal Falls near Sabie.

And that's all for today, folks. Have a good Thursday.

I've considered changing the password on the satellite tv account and hiding all the good channels for revenge. But that takes too much work. I settle for whining and stomping.

Jeanette said...
