Today is my birthday and the end of the poll…

Only one of you were right.

I am officially 21 today.

Boo yah.

In order to celebrate, I am posting a giveaway! Like I promised. So many times 🙂

One of my favourite things in the world is reading. In this giveaway, you will receive some awesome and amazing books and accessories.

I love these books.

Not just because they are classics. Nor because syaing that I have read and studied themmakes me sound smart. But becuase they are the size of my ID book. Approximetly 10 X 15 cm, they fit perfectly inside your pocket or handbag. Plus they are only around 100 pages long (most are extracts of the orginal).

I will be sending you, the winner, a list of the titles I can get my hands on. You will have the option of which two titles you would prefer. You can also expect some other awesome goodies thrown in just for good measure.

Are you in?

Kids say funny crap

Last night was my father’s birthday. My 8 year old sister leans over to hubs and says…

“I know stuff. Jacob Zuma is a very bad man. And Barrack Obama kills babies.”

I could have died! How funny is that?!

I post twice in one day when I get angry…

I like having criminals in government.

No wait. I don’t.

But over 67% of South Africans sure do.

What bothers me about this…

No one else seems bothered.

Why aren’t South Africans as angry as I am?

15 years of ANC rule has left SA with broken promises, crime and corruption. Will Zuma spare the country from another 5 years of detriment? Doubt it.

This is bullshit and no one gives a damn. Get angry. I have a US passport. I can leave when I choose. Not everyone can. And it seems as if thinking South Africans have just rolled over. Maybe they don’t care.

Maybe it’s not my fight. Maybe I shouldn’t care either. Maybe I should just leave.

And maybe, just maybe I will.
