17 June 2010

On my way to deliver a banner to antLantis this morning I spotted these two monkeys at the traffic lights on Barry Hertzog (Greenside) . Q: What have Karma, (Indian cuisine), got to do with gorillas dressed in gowns with bright orange turbans? No seriously, tell me?
By the way they are advertising a meal valued at R200 for R100 - will investigate as we do love our Chicken Kormas and Lamb Vindaloo.

Public holiday, needed to do something about my study. As wrtiten in previous posts I need to get my home office into a pleasant state. The collage above was taken during the clean up, it consists of ten image which I loosely arranged together to make a whole to show what the room looked like. (and some quick photoshop adjustments)
Bafana Bafana lost 3-0 to Uruguay. I was quite disappointed. However I am still impressed how well they performed compared to previous teams from SA.

Desperate times called for desperate measures. Hands frozen on the tablet / keyboard. Thinking of moving in the gas heater - a big one!

Sunday - Ghana vs Serbia at Loftus. I was given a ticket by a (very good) friend and tootled of to see the game all by myself. What a blast what an experience. The crowds were behind Ghana (African team) all the way. It was quite interesting how well one can see the game and the players compared to on TV which gives you a close up but you miss the peripheral perspective of the game. Note to self: "go see more live sports events and take the kids when they are old enough to appreciate it"

On saturday I took some overseas visitors on a little tour to see some sites. From the Lion Park, to the Crocodile farm to Montecasino and then home for a traditional braai.
On the photo, Elvis the albino burmese python, we met him at the crocodile farm. Very mellow (yellow) snake.

Football World-cup 2010 kick off. The roads were the busiest I have ever seen. We decided to see the game between Mexico and South Africa at Mikes Kitchen, where the kids can run around and play on the trampoline, the jungle gym, the climbing wall...etc.
I was so nervous watching the game and I screamed so hard when SA scored and throughout the whole game that my voice still hadn't recovered by monday morning. Score 1 - 1.
