Trinny in Jozi

What NOT to get me for my birthday

with 2 comments

From “Death to the 20´s” to “Finos Mafioso” it´s all about birthday parties among my Jozi friends this week.

I still have a few months to go, but see pic on the left for what I do NOT wish to receive as a birthday present. I mean, the teddy is kind of cute (and the revolting green of the school uniform cunningly misrepresented), but Aloysius is the only bear for me.

See below for the mail that accompanied the text – the original message looked like it had been written by an 8 year old with a fetish for coloured fonts and excess punctuation. And the image attachment was a mere 4MB. Damn, the old alma mater should hire me to do their newsletters, not that they could afford me, or that I would care for the job. I´d rather stick needles in my eyes – or play bridge!

  1. Can’t I give you one, puleeeez? BTW I never got an invite. Does this mean I am so uncool I don’t qualify. :))) Or maybe my email marked it as spam, due to excessive exclamation marks.

  2. I’m sure that it was a spam filter! I think it is uncool to get an invite 😉 If you want I can forward it to you?
