Leave from Bloggerville

As work slows down to a snail's pace, I bid a happy farewell to my little cubicle.And to cyberspace too, even if it is only for a week.
May everyone enjoy the HO HO HO season and find happiness in the materialistic rewards it brings.
Adieu to 2006 - you have been both a friend and foe.
And as a fresh year begins, with clean diaries and calendars, my hope is that by the end of the year, it is all filled with heart warming memories and valuable life lessons for everyone.
2007 - I am ready for you.
Bring it on!

Traveller's Tribute

For the Freeway Club, Mikey (aka Michael Buble to those who do not know him) and the guinea pig class of 2006.
To the new travellers of 2007: may you also find a ''home''.
And to Susu, thank you for this photo. Your sense of appropriateness is astounding.

We Are the Champions (again)

(Pic by Alessandro della Valle, AP)

My husband to be (hehehe) has done it again. Fabio, darling, you are now the Fifa World Player of the Year and rightly so.
Viva Azzurri, viva!
May the boys in blue win many more World Cups to come.
And see you here on South African soil in 2010.

Half a Night With Ali

Night + Rain (x Popcorn) = Movie time
This simple equation roughly translates into a damn good night.
With the sound of pelting rain on the windows and the crunch of popcorn in my ears I still managed to hear some of the dialog from Ali.
After enjoying a sleeping pill induced brain fog, I surrendered into the onto the blackness of a dreamless slumber .
Sorry Mohamed, maybe better luck next time.

My new love

The sound of idle cars - bah humbug!
Tangible frustration of fellow motorists - no more.
Wishing you were elsewhere - not during December.
Traffic - hardly.
It is easy to fall in love again this month...
...with Johannesburg.
What a pity the coast hoggers return too soon.
