road trip

i have travelled, in my time, some miles. miles of them in fact.

some of them have been road trips. i love road trips. going to the shop can be a road trip if you want it to be.

today i road tripped from jhb to debben. on the first day of my leave. tomorrow is tri-nations and sunday leisure bay for 9 days. it trip down to debben was the start of the holiday. ROAD TRIP –

but with a difference

i drove down with my mate and her two kids. and ankles. the baby kid is nine months old

things i learnt today:

nine month old babies can cry for a hour. non stop. loudly.

that was a road trip that will be a very funny story in six months time – right now i am exhausted


Last night i went out with a very good mate of mine. Ankles and i have been friends forever. And have seen each other through some stuff. So we are allowed to comment on each other’s lives.


Last night i got to meet the new girl in his life.

She is fine – nothing so amazing or awful that she warrants a post

But what does need telling was the crazy ‘biggest dick’ competition which ensued.


She met one of Ankles’ mates and they started discussing red wine; a potentially pretentious conversation at the best of times. This one was made more so by the fact that twice during the debate on whether Rothschild 2002 is a better wine that Squishedgrapes 2009 the in-depth conversation was interrupted so both show offs could drink tequila – out of the bottle!


This drinking style does render a point about the robust berries exploding on your tongue followed by a stroke of chocolate before a well-rounded after taste settles like honey on your tongue sound rather ridiculous! When we got to how many cases of what was brought for 21st and then slowly drunk one even more exquisite bottle after the next, every year since, i shook my head and gave up.


And still they droned on. It was mildly amusing to watch both of them so desperate to impress each other.


And of course i am adamant i was never THAT young!

the first post on a new blog is a tricky thing. its all about first impressions but mingled in there is the fact that very few people will even read this post. no one gets found at their first post.

but anyone writing in a public place like this is doing it to be read – whether we admit it or not.

so i have to write something i hope will be read. this is not it. so this is my new blog – i have moved from another site cos they redid it and it ate bandwidth like pig with its nose in a slop bucket. not a pretty site.

so i am to reinvent myself here

what joy!
