The good, the great and the not so great

Ive been meaning to do this for a while and what better time is there than a blustery Friday afternoon when you’re supposed to be working. None better I say.

Cleaning out the mental clutter and getting things down into chronological lists is what women do best after all. I think it’s in our genetic make-up somewhere.

What I have in mind is something along the lines of getting to know me, getting to know myself type of thing.

Or something.


Here it goes.

My latest book list of awesomeness

The Da-da-de-da-da Code by Robert Rankin. Everyone should read Robert Rankin at least once in their life. He makes me giggle to myself in ways that I’m sure other people don’t find healthy. Granted, the humour is strictly based around British culture but only someone born in a shoebox kept under the sink for most of their lives wont get it.

M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman. This is a collection of short stories targeted mostly towards children but those are my favourite. Ranging between scary and just plain wonderful its just simply Gaiman. Nuff said.

Links of wonderdom

Completely random cartoons that will either make you cry or wonder what the hell just happened to the last ten minutes of your life. Go there anyway.

Martian Skies
Because Dust Devils are just that cool!

I waste such a huge amount of time on this site its not even funny. I have three pets, a Neohome, a Neoshop, a Neobank account and no social life.

Things that are not so great (in order of suckiness)

Ridiculous deadlines
The lack of reliable time machines
Not being able to say the right thing to friends who are going through a rough patch
Blogging about registry cleaners and not having anything new to say about them
Sick cats
American versions of British novels
My mother’s cooking

Upcoming things to be excited about

Hoerskool Jan van Riebeeck are putting on a stage production of my book called GIF as part of their gala evening on the 19th July. The play is the brainchild of Andre Bester. I’m beyond excited and I cant wait to see what they have in store.

I’ll make sure to take some pictures of the event and thank everyone properly.

    A perfect Friday post, Sally. And thanks for the links - especially to the Mars-scapes.
