Photo Gallery: Lunch at Nitida with the Jacks (2010-01-31) | We joined up with Malcolm, Andri and little Corban at the fantastic kid-friendly Nitida restaurant in Durbanville, where we sat outside enjoying a scrumptious lunch under their big shade-providing Bedouin tent! (My Life | Photo Gallery)
The Day Metrorail Tried to Kill Me | I used to be a loyal train commuter for a number of years when I still worked at the University of Cape Town, so I know Metrorail pretty well - still, the last thing I expected was for them to try and kill me a ... (My Life)
For the Love of Toast! | So there I was, standing in the kitchen, two fresh slices of white bread in my hand, the Stork margarine out on the counter, the grated cheese standing at the ready and the ham lying lovingly covered by a small piece of plastic (in a ... (My Life)
War in Nagua Bay | So this Saturday past I said enough was enough, checked that Chantelle was indeed working on the day and sent out a call to the boys for anyone who wanted to come through and join me for a day of unadulterated gaming, a braai and ... (My Life)
Not a Great Morning Stench | You know what isn't a great smell to try waking up to? Opening your fridge to grab some yoghurt for breakfast and being hit by that overpowering smell of fresh, raw beef that has been sitting in your fridge overnight. And not just one piece of ... (My Life)
ryan and claire lotter at our wedding It's Just One of those Moments | It's quite interesting, but this photo above is actually one of Chantelle's and my favourite images to come out of our wedding back in November last year, despite the fact it doesn't actually feature Chantelle or myself! Instead, it depicts my sister Claire looking on as ... (My Life)
Ultimate Bobotie Showdown! | Seeing as we hadn't done it for quite a bit, last Thursday evening Chantelle and I invited our two sets of folks over for supper with us in Gordon's Bay, with Chantelle eagerly piquing her mom's interest by declaring it to be a bobotie evening ... (My Life)
The Never Diminishing Laundry Basket | I think my mom would probably have killed me had I still been living with her and generating the huge amount of laundry that I currently come up with on a daily basis. As it is, I think Chantelle could quite possibly be hating it ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Parentals over for Bobotie Night (2010-01-21) | We invited both sets of folks over to our pad at Nagua Bay for a night of bobotie and cake - which as you can see, turned out pretty successful! (My Life | Photo Gallery)
The Warm Water Spa and the Cellphone | My dear old father-in-law Monty managed to achieve the quite unthinkable this past weekend (which we spent as a Montgomery Clan getaway to Warmwaterberg Spa just by the way) - he managed to completely soak his cellphone by forgetting it in the pockets of his ... (General Nonsense | My Life)
The Missing Karl... and the SingStar Link | I'm worried about Karl. I haven't heard from the good Dr. Storbeck in ages now, haven't seen any life of him (apart from newly tagged photos) on FaceBook and haven't come across his name in any ground-breaking scientific journal releases as of late. What has happened ... (General Nonsense | My Life)
More Marvel T-Shirt Geekery! | Did I mention that all of a sudden all my t-shirts happen to feature Marvel superhero characters? I don't know how this happened (clue: it was Christmas' fault) but I do know that it is awesome - and I like it! :P So in no particular ... (Comic Books | My Life)
Photo Gallery: Warmwaterberg Spa Weekend Getaway (2010-01-16) | We enjoyed a fantastic weekend away with the Montgomery Clan at Warmwaterberg Spa, soaking away all of our stresses in their fantastic natural warm water pools! :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Muppet on a T-Shirt: Kermit the Frog | Posted entirely for the sake of Sven and his insatiable love for all things Muppet, I thought it prudent to put up this picture of the t-shirt given to me by Claire and Riley for Christmas and now worn proudly around the home when in ... (My Life)
Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats... at the Artscape | I'm not a great theatre lover, I'll easily admit to that, but I do agree that there are some theatre productions and musicals that one simply has to see during their lifetime, as simple as that. And having already seen Phantom and the Opera when ... (My Life | My Reviews)
Stomach versus Sunset Spur | I had a good week last week, that I did. Had a good start to work for Touchwork 2010, caught Cats at the Artscape with the Montgomery Clan on Thursday evening and then spent the weekend in Betty's Bay on a Karate Camp with my ... (My Life)
Tiger Claw Clean | Man, what a spring-cleaning drive Chantelle and I have been on as of late! Determined to at last clear up some much needed space in our home pad, Chantelle has been like a tiger set loose upon a big juicy hunk of meat! Clothes have been ... (My Life)
Kirsty, Come Sit Over Here | So let it be known that Chantelle and I started 2010 off by heading out on Saturday January the 2nd and purchasing our very first sofa set, with the delivery date set at February 15. This is a huge moment for me, because this marks ... (My Life)
Sitting in Traffic | Bliksem, I sat in traffic for 2 whole hours last night trying to get home from work! O.o The reason? Cape Town's scorching heat which seemed to have sent everyone straight to the beaches - seriously though, doesn't anyone work in Cape Town any more? :P Baden Powell ... (My Life)
Burning Her In | I mentioned previously in these here pages that Chantelle surprised me with a proper man's braai this Christmas, and after giving it its final protective paint coat, I decided to at last set it forth on its maiden burning, seeing as this Saturday past was ... (My Life)
Daily Annoyance: Gero Yoghurt | To me yoghurt is yoghurt, I eat any brand of the stuff (though I do prefer the smooth ones to the chunky types, I'll admit to that), but it would seem that Chantelle has a penchant for Gero yoghurt, the low fat, diabetic friendly yoghurt ... (General Nonsense | My Life)
Out with 2009 and in with 2010 | Well, I'm currently back at the grindstone, having started work on Monday again (and my first day was spent on tech support trying to bring all our systems back up seeing as we ran out of electricity on the same day at around 03:00 in ... (My Life)
A Long Walk | Actually, over the course of this past stretch of leave, I did in fact discover a great new little exercise routine to keep me busy and my blood pumping over all those days spent alone at the pad in Gordon's Bay - I shall call ... (My Life)
Ficus Standing Tall | Amazingly enough, contrary to Terrance's utterances as one of the Best Men at our wedding, we have managed to keep something alive for longer than a week. As you can see from my painstakingly gained proof, Ficus still stands proud and tall at our back ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Braai with Trish and Karl (2010-01-02) | What better way to start off the new year by enjoying a braai under the sun with good pals Damen, Michelle, Karl and Trish? :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
A Trojan in Our Midst | Well, the new year is now upon us and like most, I'm sure you already have that scrap of paper with all your new year resolutions tucked neatly under the phonebook, just in case you accidentally lay eyes on it again come the end of ... (My Life | Sport & Health)
