A kinda... lightish red

I just saw this news post on the Nintendo site, and it made me think of Waynne =)

"Pretty in Pink - A new colour of DS Lite joins the range, and we’ve got a brand new microsite to show off all its pretty features"

C'mon, you know you want one ;)

The suggestion this morning by Hannes that we go through to Kalkies for fish and chips at lunch was initially met by skepticism from me. A Kalk Bay harbour fish and chips place sounded really dodgy, and I was not disappointed on that front when we did finally arrive there. The food was really excellent, albeit a little oily. "I don't think I've had this much oil in one sitting in a long time" was BB's comment, and had me thinking of stories of kiddies drinking from the sunflower oil bottles. Loei was lucky enough to be hit on by the waitress when she slapped his arse and said "No bums on the table!". I think that means she likes you, buddy. Blushing like a schoolgirl only makes them more interested. As we were finishing up, the guy at the table next to use really drove home how high-class an establishment it was by pouring himself a glass of wine from the papsak he had brought along. No corkage, I guess, if there's no cork.

But really, an excellent outing, for an excellent Friday.

Changes (not like Tupac)

It really is starting to get to summer now. Dubious mornings followed by pretty hot days are forcing me to wear my zipoffs more often than not. Not that I'm complaining, even tho I have always preferred winter to summer.

Work has got me writing documentation again, albeit for a short while and interspersed with coding. It does make for a nice change, and at least this lot is low stress.

Julie left for Jozi this week Monday. The weekend was largely taken up by goodbye events for her, starting with drinks at the Planet bar in the Mount Nelson on Saturday evening. It's a really nice place, albeit rather expensive. A nice occasional outing place for pretending to be civilized. Sunday morning saw me fetching Julie for CT station where she put her car on the train, since Al has done something to his car. He wasn't specific and mumbled a bit, so I'm not sure what, but he was driving it the next day, so who knows. Breakfast at the B&B in Harfield was the reward for the lift. Sunday lunch was at Montebello off Newlands Avenue, which was enjoyable despite the slightly slow service. The burger I had was really good, especially after I scraped off most of the FLAMING hot home-made chutney.

It looks like Al is leaving Cape Town for a while. He's not exactly sure when, but it will probably be sometime this month (edit: actually it seems end of November is more likely). Our Thursday D&D game will be poorer for it (read: non-existent). Also, Lucas might get Greg to take his room... we will have to see how that goes ;) At least that way I won't be missing out on lengthy lectures about The War ^_^

60 is definitely the place to be. There is so much more content available to me now, and so many divers think to do. I was kicked out of my PvP guild (Happy Tree Friends, the one with the pink tabard) at lvl59 cos they were doing a massive cleanup, and now I have joined Disabled, a pretty decent PvE guild. I've run Zul'Gurub twice, and will probably run it again tonight.

I have three pieces of my Feralheart set, which was quite a damn mission to upgrade to from the three Wildheart pieces I bought. I still need to do a couple of instances over and over and over to get what I want for it.
