Five little bits of superfabulousness, total

1. Freshlyground are singing the World Cup anthem (with that other girl).
2. We saw Abdullah Ibrahim when we were having drinks at my Cape Town local in Obs. Some clever person (not me) got his autograph as a pension plan.
3. My first article has been published by The Daily Maverick. And BizCommunity too!
4. Mick has been featured in a McCain* advertisement. So I guess you’ll be able to watch it soon, if you’re in Canada, that is.
5. I’ve taken the day/night off work, and will be attending Not the London Book Fair presently.

* That’s McCain the food group, not McCain the politician, in case you were wondering…


Same words, different context III

Al Ain (“the spring”) is an oasis city in the United Arab Emirates. I never visited, so I can’t say much more about it. I did drink plenty of Al Ain mineral water though. It was, well, watery.

Alain de Botton on the other hand, is a wanky pop philosopher, about whom I would have much to say, except I don’t feel like wasting my breath. “Life changing” if you’re a pretentious undergrad. Otherwise I wouldn’t bother.
