Making it out of the Mindgame Escape Room…

Do you have the Mind to Escape? I and a select group of my Durban friends - including my younger sister, Dawn - suspected we might have and so we decided to put Durban's Premier Escape Room experience to the test. On Monday 13th of August, six intrepid clue hunters known as Team Fish Poop [I provided the 'Fish' and have no idea which of these juveniles decided to throw in some faeces] took on The [...]

But what can i do? [White people in South Africa and beyond…]

White South African friends... i have so much love for you. A number of you, when race conversations have been happening, have asked the question, "What can i do?" and as one who doesn't have all the answers but certainly has some of the journey, i figured I can share some things that helped me to move further along in this conversation. So for the next forty days, i am hoping to share an idea [...]

Introducing – Concert in the Dark: “Into the Light”

Concert tickets include refreshments. We've entitled the programme, "Into the Light" and it contains works by well known and lesser [...]

Of work and things.

i thought it might be helpful or interesting to some of you who read my blog to know what i am up to. For the longest time i have been largely unemployed - officially since November when the horrible online Christian article platform i was writing for finally pulled the plug after three years, after a last six months of increasingly irritating and unprofessional changes which completely schnied [what a great word!] the writers. So [...]

A quick massage from our sponsors

On Friday i drove to the MyMassage studio in Greenpoint for a massage. A one-hour massage. A free one-hour massage. The very best kind. In fact, if you head over to their website right now [and for the next two weeks or so] you can book your first massage for 50% off which is a super great deal and they have some other package deals that are worth taking a look at. i remember telling [...]

Give the change you want to see…

About a week ago i was hanging out with a group of friends discussing some quite incredible stories of generosity that we had all been involved in this past year. Each person in the group was connected to a person in the story of generosity although the majority of the group didn't know the people involved. The stories ranged from educational assistance to helping start up a township business to paying for a vehicle to [...]

Endless Questions and the answers Brett Fish gives to them

All the things you [n]ever wanted to know about me? Well i'm not sure about that or if this is just my friend Ger Bear's way of getting back at me for calling her "Ger Bear" but before you dive in you should totally head on over to Geraldine Walsh's blog over here especially if you're a mom or a parent because she has a really honest and open writing style and i think she's great.

The Christmas Carol that could

Let me be honest here. i'm not a fan of Christmas carols. i judge a successful year by how late in the year i hear my first Christmas carol in the mall [and this year was a pretty decent year let me tell you - may have even been December, although that might say more about how often i find myself in malls these days than how early the carols started droning]. At least i [...]

Open letter to Ster Kinekor about why you suck so much!

[*Disclaimer: this blog post can only be read in 3D, so please deposit R20 in my Paypal account before reading further ] Dear Ster Kinekor Overlords, I'm just going to assume you have given yourselves that title, because it would be a missed opportunity if not, with the way you treat the general masses. I watched 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' last night and Spoiler Alert: Watching it in 3D SUCKED! I woke up this morning [...]

When you cannot weight any longer.

i think this is my most embarrassing photo ever [and for me, that's saying a lot]. i call it my fat face photo and i keep it to remind me of a time when my face was about as wide as it was long. This is me in Umtata in 2002 and clearly it wasn't an epidemic of weighty proportions, because by Umtata 2003 i'm looking pretty healthy and average sized again...       [...]
