Hokay, this is going to be fairly disjointed, I'm sure. I will be writing while doing a million other work-type things - good thing I'm a girl and can multi-task ;)

Right now I'm waiting for the Test Server to start up. Oops, it's done. BRB.

Kay, I'm back. Yesterday was a pretty hectic day! Spent a 2 hour lunch break with Varen stocking up on food & drinks (so many drinks!) for our imminent trip to Mozambique. I'm pretty sure we have kept alive our apparent tradition of seriously over-catering! I'm not quite sure how we will fit all the rations, the dive gear, clothing and ourselves into his two-door polo ??

Ooh, and during our shopping spree we saw a hysterical Vanity Plate ... so funny in fact that I made him take pic for me to post up here. I love it! He thinks it's earned a spot up there in the top 5 most stupid things.

Anyway, I'm sure we'll figure that all out very soon ;) Last night we went for dinner with JofH & YogaCherryl. He, the born & bred Joburg boy, finally got to one-up me, the Cape Town girl, with a restaurant I hadn't yet tried :) We went to La Campagnola in Bryanston.

It was nice enough, although it won't make my list of favourite Jhb restaurants, I also wouldn't veto any ideas to go back. It's not a very vast menu but my Melanzane alla Parmigiana was fabulous :)

All thru dinner I wondered, though. They have all these bottles of wine in racks along the wall. And they are really dusty. Now are these just really old, expensive bottles that few people buy or really cheap, rubbish wine that no one wanted to buy ... or, my much more creative idea on it all, they have one of the Jhb Police finger-print guys moonlighting & dusting the bottles for effect! I wonder if there's a market for that sort of "ambient dusting" ? ;)

And that was that. Tonight we have the Book Club Girlie Party and already 2 people have canceled ... I'm noticing a trend :( Oh well, I'm sure it'll still be loads of fun, right, right ?
