What a hectic weekend...

I am writing this between all the other piles of work that I have lying on my desk at the moment, so I apologize for the brevity of the post, just realized that it's been months since I last posted and am hoping to stimulate a post by Lee...

I have been having a fairly hectic few months, and things are starting to clear up, now dating a new girl, moving into a bigger place (which I am actually in the process of painting pre-move), waiting on SARS to pay out what they owe me and attempting to figure out a situation at home. All the while maintaining my level of workmanship and excellence, and trying to make time to straighten my hair...

Now firstly, having had to go into SARS to register for income tax as they have lost both my applications thus far, I realized something about goverment service qeues, namely, that it seems like an eternity passes before you reach the front of the qeue that is only four people long. And my observation of the phenomena is this: The perceived lack of speed in a government service qeue is, in fact, an illusion. It is caused by the fact that there are at least twenty people behind the counter, of which roughly only two know how to perform the job, the balance making up the management of the department as per government money wasting guidelines. So the perception of slow progress by 20 people, is in fact a superhuman feat of juggling and ability by the only two people actually qualified to perform the job.


So, Friday is tha start of Rage, the biggest event in South African IT each year, and I shall be attending in my capacity as an ICT consultant. So there goes my Friday.

Then it's Pride on Saturday, which I shall be attending with various of my colleagues and my housemates, in support of the lifestyle, but mostly because it's a jol and I think it'll be epic fun.

And finally, on Sunday, we will be going to Sexpo, so as to broaden our horizons (and possibly see boobs)...

All in all, things are looking busy for this weekend, especially when you add on top of that the fact that I have to still finish painting my new place and move in by Friday... So things are rough, but at least a fun kind...
