whole new world

[yes the title is a reference to Disney a song that hasn't left my head for the last hour or so]
. and before i start, let me just note that i do not know how to use/work this macbook that i'm typing on. it keeps on zooming in and out and right clicking when i didn't right click. and so on and so on.

the last few days have been fun
long. minimum sleep, but fun.
went to Malmesbusy last friday night to work at a cycle event on saturday morning and afternoon. damn cyclist arrived there at 6am and expected me to make them coffee.
pfft to them and there tight pants and shaven legs.
anyways, then they where off at 7 15 and we had to wait around for them and their supporters to arrive back so that we could serve them.
long day. ended with us watching both rugby matches, stealing the farms cat and driving home.

just as i got home at about 10 45 a friend phoned and asked if i'd please drive him to stellenbosch cause he really wanted to go but did not feel comfortable driving in the state he was in. so ended up driving to stellenbosch. when we got there (a 21st where i knew the people but had planned not to go seeing that i'd worked for the last two days and was in need of sleep) i went in to say hi and happy birthday to the birthday boy.
two and a half hours later i drove home
what an interesting evening. so many conversations with people i didn't know in one night.
really enjoyed it
also had a long chat to a friend about books and what books i should read so went and bought myself two books on sunday. Amsterdam by Ian McEwan, started reading it last night. pretty good. first book i've read in over a month to be honest. not my proudest moment. still trying to figure out what amsterdam has to do with anything, but still got a while to go. the plot only just thickened.
also bought Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder, started reading it a while back at maggie's house. want to read more. will read it next.

[the macbook just did that thing when it zooms in so all the text is really big and i have to scroll across to read from one side of the screen to the next. great.]

moving on
so sunday night my brother dropped me of in cape town cause i'm staying here this week cause we've got training for the world cup 3 days this week so its easlier to be in cape town. Did a short bar tending  course thing today.
was pretty interesting. who'd ever think that i'd be the one who knows all this stuff about alcohol?
its strange

went to inge's birthday thing tonight
was meant to be at waiting room, but when we go there it was closed and inge had written a note on the door saying we must go to zula, went to zula, paid the R40 entrance, turns out they were not there and ended up in neighbourhood. pretty sweet place though.
interesting people again. lots of medic students.
and long, pointless yet interesting conversation with a 28yr old IT consultant.
got a taxi back to the flat. daylight robery if you ask me and now i'm sitting trying to work out how to use this mac.

just got it to zoom out.

oh wells
thats me
not too sure what i'm doing tomorrow
but i'm in cape town with nothing to do. hopefully i find something
