Summer slumber and other things...

Was in a state of summer slumber until I came across this wake up call. The world cup is over and my nerves are back to a semi-normal state. Some people don't believe that I can sit down and enjoy a soccer match (i feel you KP). One jamaa had the cojones to tell me that I look like I would enjoy sports like figure skating badala ya soccer WTF?? One thing about me is that I hate the cold with a passion! Any sport that has to do with ice or snow is met with an upturned nose, a knit brow and a loud harrumpph! Winter just kills me and my friend if you happen to have a car with heated seats then we shall be joined at the hip! Enough about the cold, summer must be enjoyed in all it's hot and humid glory.

So I've been enjoying a couple of reads lately and ignored my blog. Came across In the Shadow of a Saint by Ken Wiwa. Read a little about the book here. I have to give credit where it's due as I would never have picked up the book if it wasn't for this post here. Kudos Cock and Bull Stories. I highly recommend the book.

On a different note, sometimes I feel like my work is so mundane and then I get a kick in the ass and a major reality check. That said, I really don't know what I would do without PBS. A while back a film called A Lion in the House was broadcast on PBS. "A LION IN THE HOUSE follows the stories of five exceptional children and their families as they battle pediatric cancer. From the trauma of diagnosis to the physical toll of treatment, this series documents the stresses that can tear a family apart as well as the courage of children facing the possibility of death with honesty, dignity and humor. As the film compresses six years into one narrative, it puts viewers in the shoes of parents, physicians, nurses, siblings, grandparents and social workers who struggle to defeat an indiscriminate and predatory disease" I'm not sure if they will be showing this film again but if by chance anyone gets to see it I recommend a copious amount of Kleenex nearby.

I kinda prefer the cold to heat. At least with the cold you can do something about it...wear heaps of clothes etc
but if its really really hot and there's no air con, you cant do much about it, can you?

You Are Independent Sexy
You drive men crazy with your "playing hard to get act" Except, it's really not an act at all. You're a strong, sexy woman with her own life and interests. And that makes men even more interested in you!
What Kind of Sexy Are You?
