If I die, it's because I have exposed him and I will most likely be "tarred, feathered and hung." Or I have malaria.

Boss is indulging in his usual habit of chain smoking potent African whacky tabaccky. How the guy stays awake is beyond me.

Just wanted to say that I visited Jo'sburg last night. I don't know if you have heard or even seen the American reality show "The Amazing Race" where couples race around the world. Well last night they made a stop there, visited some caves, a native cultural village, some very neat painted cooling towers and a zoo. It was nice to get a chance to look around but I wasn't able to spot you anywhere. Must have been hiding.

Ed - I definitely know the Amazing Race! Its one reality show I'd consider entering actually. You're a season ahead of us though - I'm so excited they stop in JHB! Those cooling towers are a Soweto landmark, and I live very close to the zoo! Perhaps I was hiding out in one of the lion cages...as one does.

Ho - I think I could take both of u :)

hello lovely glad you had a good break! You have that chilled out post-holiday aura about you :) I wanna meet Boss... i could do with a bit of a chill out myself ;)

Hey Z! Thanks mate! Yes the holiday feeling takes so long to achieve, yet two days of work have killed it completely. It's sad really....can hook you up with Boss if you like ;) (but I dont recommend it)
