Iyho! what a party skat!!! Like, i can't even really try to describe the setup to you, you simply won't get it unless you were there. But i will tell you that it was at this massive house in Obsevatory. Now skattie i really hate Obsevatory and i have taken to calling it Obslavatory but oh my god this fucking house totally blew my mind, it's like a fucking estate in the middle of Obs, apparently it is Dick Enthoven's son weekend home. I say apparently because booze and fact gathering don't go too well together. In case you don't know, Dick owns the Spier wine estate and someone said Hollard insurance as well, i can't verify the Hollard bit but you have access to the internet and time on your hands so you can verify this info for yourself. The party was in celebration of Dick's son or daughter-in-law's birthday. Anyway whateva, i am way too hungova to continue with this write-up, enjoy the pics and know that it was a fucking amazing party, and congratulations to Elmi who organized the whole thing. Jesus girl! you rock.

Now i must warn you as i start this post that i am a little bitter because of my broken and now useless camera. I kinda thought i was over it, i blamed myself for getting so irresponsibly sloshed that i let another drunk person play around with my expensive toy. But now that i think about it, all i got from abovementioned breaker of cameras was a simple 'oops', not a sorry-can-i-pay-for-my-fuck-up. whateva, i breathe, i move on, i hope. So i am straight back to where i started, i am taking pics on my kak nokia again, well atleast until i can afford to get myself a fancy schmancy new camera. Other than that little glitch i've had a perfectly fantastic Saturday morning and early afternoon at the "You, Me and Everyone we know market" at the Labia theatre on Orange. Later on i drove to Khayelitsha because my good friend Bettina Malcomess was hosting an artist talk on Migration and Hybrid Identities. Luckily i missed the entire thing. As it turned out it was part of a whole day event organized by Suzy Bell. There was an exhibition, the abovementioned talk and a whole lot of musical perfomances including Ernestine (can somebody say passe') from the formerly interesting band Moodphase 5. Some seemed to enjoyed her music, i was bored, that girl really needs to throw away her bong and those sarong-y print pants. Anyway i digress,  I must say that in my eyes Suzy is a cultural legend in Cape Town, really you must google her Skattie. I have been to a few of her events and i have blogged about them, my only regret is that in past blog posts i have not taken pics to bring to you as evedence of her somewhat dodgy taste in clothing. i have also read her writing in print and on her site, i am a beeg fan. The only issue i ever have with her is her dress sense, never mind those stupid dogs she sometimes drags around. This afternoon was no different, she resembled a lemon meringue that's been dipped in green food colouring. really WTF Suzy? Sad part is that she always seems to try so hard and fails so terribly in the wardrobe department. Like i said i do admire the woman, if i achieved half of what she has achieved in my lifetime i would feel accomplished, but the little that i might achieve in this life i pray to achieve attired in far better style that Suzy.

So this past weekend i went to Joburg on a work related trip, work being that daytime gig that puts new appliances on my kitchen counter. For the first couple of days all i could think about was how much i dislike that city (the city not the people skat, i.e. not you). Relax skat, i'm not about to go on a Joburg bashing mission. I'm just saying i don't like it much, horrible architecture and death by facebrick. Like seriously skat, what does Jozi have against paint? Fortunately my friend Fumi had a lunchtime gathering to celebrate his 29th birthday on Saturday, and it made my Joburg trip so totally worth it, it ended up being such a brilliant weekend packed full of my top 3 favourites; bubbly, beer and the sound of my drunken  voice. If you've read my last two post you might know that my camera broke, so i didn't have a camera at Fumi's lunch, so thanks to my very talented friend Mazwi Vezi for the pics above. I also snapped a couple of pics on my phone, if you've been with us for a while you might remember that all the early pics on this blog were taken on my phone. So ja, if you can spot the 3 not so hi-quality pics,  those are from my phone.

On another competely unrelated matter; the hotel room i stayed in had 3 full length mirrors. I endured so much abuse from those mirrors skat i think i might have to stop eating altogether. Of course i know very well that i'm not what one might  call skinny, but those mirrors confirmed that i am defitnitely what one would call fat. Oh skattie the stress. Maybe it is time to go back to gym, obese is not a good colour on me and i've been wearing it for way too many seasons.
