Vuvuzela’s blown outside of Somerset Hospital (right next door to the Cape Town Stadium)

When I had my accident back in January.  I was in hospital for a couple of weeks down at the Waterfront.  It was a strange place to be, in essence the hospital is right next to the sea, and just a  stones throw away from the Cape Town Stadium. I wasnt in hospital because I … Continue reading Vuvuzela’s blown outside of Somerset Hospital (right next door to the Cape Town Stadium)

20 weeks, 140 days, and im off for my first walk up to the ponds with the pooch.

Pretty much every day, I would take my dog for a wee walk or swim up in the mountains.  To me, one of the best things about living in Cape Town in the City Bowl, is the ability to be in nature literally just crossing the road. I off now for a wee drive/walk up … Continue reading 20 weeks, 140 days, and im off for my first walk up to the ponds with the pooch.

Just out of hospital. No joy. ANOTHER 4 WEEKS MINIMUM

“I describe my look as a blend of mother goose, cinderella, and the local hooker.” I love Dolly Parton

In a world full of copies, imitation and rubbish.  One person stands out in my opinion as the mother of honesty. There is something about Dolly Parton that just does it for me.  By that....im not referring to her sexuality, which she oozes for a grandmother. Dont get me wrong, Im not keen in a … Continue reading “I describe my look as a blend of mother goose, cinderella, and the local hooker.” I love Dolly Parton

Did I break my funny bone along with my tibia and fibula?

Its been over three months since my accident.  Three months of feeling sorry for myself and not exactly getting much done. I recently starting doing a few stand-up gigs again.  But I will admit to being neither funny, nor motivated. The South African comedy scene is fairly fractures (scuse the pun) and the distances involved … Continue reading Did I break my funny bone along with my tibia and fibula?
