Big T, reminding me that we're indeed living in the 19th Century: "Reading an article in the Financial Mail quoting a description of Johannesburg in the 19th century: “Probably the most corrupt, immoral and untruthful assemblage of human beings in the world.”
Johannesburg is also described in the same article as “ Monte Carlo imposed upon Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Interesting, and here I thought at least we're friendly right?
Feeling a bit blue today. Probably just a bit tired and torn out. I feel a bit...mingerish too, but that's my problem, not the rest of the world's. Would just like to curl up under a desk today though, and sleep and dream of far distant places, where the people aren't corrupt, the drive to work doesn't make me schvitz, the food isn't fattening, and everything feels a bit different...just for one day.
You know when you SMS the number on the back of your cigarette box to 35 3030, (or whatever it is), whereby you have to unscramble the word "Koyto" to reveal the "Beautiful, crazy city in which you could find yourself!"? No? I don't usually do these silly SMS competitions either. But the back of the pack promised I could win one of three holidays to Lmina, Koyto or Risap!
They sound awfully exotic don't they. Now hold thumbs for me please.
