A Little Bit About Being A Girl

I’ve been asked to write this post by far too many people, but I thought I should entertain them anyway.  I’m not really a girl.  Not the way Caster Semenya is.  No, I’m fully male, and I have the bits to prove it.  And they were there when I was born too.  I even went the full route – when I was 8 days old the Rabbi did his part, rubbed a bit of wine on my gums, and proceeded to snip the schmuck.  Not as though I a choice in the matter, but I’m not complaining now. I...

A Little Something About Cheating

This post doesn’t require any explained pictures, or fancy formatting.  It doesn’t need your judgement.  In fact, you may not be able to understand the reason behind my actions, but I know, and that is all I need. I hope that you have never been cheated on.  I also hope that you have never cheated on anyone.  Let’s face it though, even good people cheat.  When I was 19, I cheated on my then long-term girlfriend.  It was a young-love long-distance relationship and I was drunk, young and after tail.  The issues that ensued were ridiculous, and ultimately were a big part of our relationship ending, be it 6 months later.  But the moral of the story, for me anyway, was that I needed to at that stage, to protect all future girlfriends.  I never cheated on my ex.  Granted, our first year together was a stupid let’s-see-who-can-hurt-the-other-more scenario, but it was never cheating.

A Little Bit About New Developments

So, as you know, I haven’t really been very good at posting of late.  I have been really busy with work and trying to be more social, and, to tell the truth, there are new developments in the pipeline.  New exciting developments.  Well, they are for me, anyway.  And, I’m hoping these new changes will force me to blog more.  In fact, I know some of these changes will have me blogging more. As soon as I have all my ducks in a row, you’ll all know.  Until then, however, please don’t lose interest – This won’t take too...

A Little Something About The Joburg Diaries

I’ve compiled a little diary of my trip up to jozi.  It’s detailed in some cases, and vague in others.  It’s not meant to be taken too seriously, so make sure you’re not offended in anyway.  And if you are, too bad. If I’ve left anything significant and interesting out, add it as a comment. Saturday 11:17 – My alarm goes off waking me after only 6 hours of sleep.  I lie in bed for a while, slowly waking up.  Then reality hits me.  I had completely miscalculated my departure time.  My flight was leaving at 2pm, and I...
