{Oh, wow. My third ‘I promise I’m still alive – please don’t contact the authorities’ post in a row. That’s gotta be a new record.}  Hey, geeks.

A Pity Party? For Me? You Shouldn’t Have…

This is a mixture between an apology/excuse post for pulling off another unexpected vanishing act and a rant about my current headspace.

“Are we ready? …Uh huh. Good.”

A hopeless response to President Zuma’s hopeless address to the nation. I could lie and say that I don’t know what I expected as I sat there, cellphone in one hand, TV remote in the other, glancing lazily between my Twitter feed and the eNCA debate. But I know exactly what I expected. I expected […]
