People are spending like there’s no tomorrow

Took Gabby to book her learners licence on Wednesday, was expecting to be a 3 hour wait but having boxed clever as had taken Gabby the day before to the optometrist to get her eyes tested so that meant when we got to the licence department at “sparrow fart”  and instead of having to stand in the eye test Q we just sauntered to the payment Q and 20 minutes later we was “outa there”. As the A team would say “I love it when a plan comes together”

Went Xmas shopping on Thursday and I have 3 words “WTF” was I thinking, we laugh or smirk at those people we know or read about that buy Xmas presents during the year for family and friends – “why” “they ARE THE SMART ONES ladies and gents”. The “experience” starts in the parking lot where it seems the saying “Good will and peace to all men” does not apply. People are swearing at each other throwing zap signs and on the verge of fisticuffs. Then after you have found a parking space you battle the horde into the mall/s then it’s just a mass of humanity flowing and ebbing towards and out of shops all looking for that “special” Xmas present. I usually start with a positive frame of mind with an idea of what I want to buy but as the day progresses and you have not found what you are looking for you start to hate the crowds, Xmas decorations and the Frikken Xmas music and know how the Gringe felt.....................Thankfully Xmas comes but once a year. “Oh and you get to meet some strange people at the Mall over Xmas, this poor sod is getting married next week and this is what his best man and mates made him do”  
So the Mayans were wrong as many of us sane people realized  I wonder how many of those Apocalypse “bunker hiding, cat food eating” people are feeling a little stupid now? So I have survived another end of the world scenario............................... Lucky me.  

So Cyril Ramaposa is now the deputy president having taken over from Motlanthe, although he is apparently still holding onto the position until the elections in 2014 (unless he resigns of course, My prediction is that he resigns before his term is up – “and I ain’t a Mayan”) so what’s my thoughts on this development from the Mangaung Conference.................Well to be honest what’s really going to change? I was hoping that we would get rid of JZ as president as don’t think he is the man for the job, Hopefully Cyril who is an astute man and also a very wealthy one. Having Ramaposa as DP is not the end of the world.  

Friday Tania and I  met with a couple of friends (Rob , Rudy and Jacki ) at the local micro brewery for a couple of ‘lemonades” the place is called Bridge street Brewery and is pretty nice, it’s on the Baakens river, is a converted warehouse and has a huge outside area with live music, it was packed. Make the most amazing potato wedges ever..................Frikken awesome. Was lekker to just chill, have a few cold ones and talk kak.  

Saw this headline in a expat newspaper, seems that foreigners are taking over the UK. Seems that “white actually born in the UK Poms” are becoming the minority and is a concern to the British Government, well if they did not allow every "Tominchavich, Abdul and Stoffel" into the country then perhaps that would not be happening.  

The Proteas under captaincy of youngster Faf du Plessis gave the Black caps a hiding in the first 20/20 international with a 8 wicket defeat, the New Zealanders managed 86 all out in 18 over’s with SA romping to a victory with nearly 8 over’s to spare. Let’s hope the victory does not go to their heads and they carry on with the winning streak. SA have a habit of doing well in first game and then going to sleep.

1: I prefer breasts to legs. 
2: Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist. 
3: Smother the butter all over the breasts. 
4: If I don't undo my trousers, I'll burst! 
5: I've never seen a better spread! 
6: I fancy a little dark meat for a change. 
7: Are you ready for seconds yet? 
8: It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it? 
9: Just wait your turn, you'll get some! 
10: Don't play with your meat! 
11: Stuff it up between the legs as far as it will go. 
12: Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once? 
13: I didn't expect everyone to come at the same time! 
14: You still have a little bit on your chin. 
15: How long will it take after you put it in? 
16: You'll know it's ready when it pops up. 
17: Just pull the end and wait for the bang. 
18: That's the biggest bird I've ever had! 
19: I'm so full, I've been gobbling nuts all morning. 
20: Wow, I didn't think I could handle all that and still want more.

Before I go here are a few of the worst predictions of all time.

On a more serious note  total of 765 people have been killed on SA roads so far this month so if you’re driving over the next few days be careful and remember “everyone on the road is an idiot except you”

Ciao everyone and have a really Lekker Christmas day.
