I’m having the best birthday evar! Thanks to everyone who’s making it so awesome, but most of all to Lynnae for being the world’s best girlfriend!

Charly’s Bakery is quite surreal; when you walk in the door it feels a little like you just stepped onto a scene from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. I will keep you posted on how good the cake tasted.

Over and Out!



Follow a star

I’m (hopefully) going to be following a star soon… Sailing from Hout Bay to Knysna with Jeremy in a 9 metre (ie Small) yacht.

The best way to celebrate being alive is to live. Thanks to my wonderful girlfriend for a. being ok with it and b. actually supporting my crazy whims. (And thanks to my boss who’s going to give me leave as soon as the wind is right)

More on this soon.

Thanks for the memories…

Lourens is my best friend… I’ve known him for a long long time and I must admit, he’s a friggen legend.

A few minutes ago he mailed me photos we took in 2006. When we are together we will get up to untold amounts of shit.

Basic story goes that we had a dodgy microwave that we had inherited from one of our friends. It had moved with us from Claremont to Pinelands. It was a dodgy microwave… rusted inside, give you cancer kind of dodgy. There was also a toaster which I think I had inherited from my sister when I first moved out. They  both worked but we didn’t want or need them. We also didn’t know what to do with them and we had to move out the next morning.  We could have given them to a poor person but poor people get cancer too.

So we wrote on them and put them in the roof. With an empty bottle of beer. I have no idea what the beer was for.

Yes, it was childish and infantile. But that is what life is all about. Fun memories you will never forget.

I really really really wish I could see the look on the face of the person who discovered it… If it has been discovered.

Short of torture or ransacking random roofs in Pinelands you will never know what the microwave says.
