Hello Marc

A friend of mine from primary school (yes Dylan, someone I’ve known longer than you) has just gotten back into contact with me after emigrating to UK. Hello, Marc!

For those of you who give a damn, this is the same guy who wrote a couple of poems with me almost 20 years ago. Feeling old, yet?

We wrote “Catch It!” and “Overcoming Affliction” when we were around 11 or 12 years old, in Standard Four (Grade 6).

Kurt Angle is a sellout

Kurt Angle, who left WWE recently, apparently due to prescription medication abuse, has signed up with TNA. Well done to TNA for getting one of the world's best professional wrestlers, but this does nothing for fixing Kurt's addiction. Shame on you, Kurt!

See you in 15 years, Frikkie

"Cape Town – The boyfriend of a 16-year-old Sir Lowry's Pass girl, who knifed her several times, cut her throat and assaulted her indecently with a metre-long iron stake, has been sentenced to lifelong imprisonment."

Pass the gravy

From the article (see related link):

"The Democratic Alliance in Gauteng is worried about the expenses of the province's MEC for finance after it became known he spent more than R226 000 on functions in a year.

Mashatile's credit-card expenses for the period June 2005 to June 2006 indicated he had spent more than R163 000 at the luxury five-star restaurant, Auberge Michel, in Sandton the nine times he dined there.

The expenses included, among others, amounts of R19 354.50, R9 854.50, R10 354.50 and R96 375.40."

I'm hungry. Please pass the MEC's credit card, with its R400 000 limit.
