Ahh, that moment when a work colleague says something twattish to you and you can’t react because you’re ‘at work’… #gfy
How can a memory as simple as you eating an octopus cause me so much pain? Momentary heart-stopping desolation.
I’m confused… They say if you love someone, let them go, and if they come back - they are yours. But did anyone write such advisory poetry on what to do if they leave once more?
Is that the finite end or is one meant to wait once more for twice the proof of true love?
Just had a delivery from South Africa… Sent by a very kind gentleman, who knows I love Oscar Pistorius.
This was sent in November and only just been delivered now! Thought it’s loss-in-transit was metaphorically representative of what happened in and since February 2013… Luckily not. I got it, instead, just as his bail conditions were relaxed to allow travel - perhaps even Russia in August?
Anyway, I was ecstatic to receive it today :) I’ll add it to ‘the collection’ of my Oscar cuttings… seems they might be few and far between now. The positive biases, anyway.

There is a political zeitgeist brewing in South Africa.
Suddenly the social frailties still existent in this post-apartheid era are being put under the microscope. One too many high-profile crimes have exposed the depth of damage woven into the fabric of the South African consciousness. And perhaps, finally, they are realising they are permitted a voice to demand something better.
