This weekend the fates have conspired to ensure that Colonialist did no blogging. Starting with the electricity going off at 6 p.m on Friday, there have been regular cuts throughout the weekend. Then there have been urgent calls on my time for some business-related stuff. To add insult to injury, though, on Saturday:
Load-shedding came at six o’clock
So blogging I then had to dock,
When at eight lights came back on
There was something else had gone –
The internet now had a block!
In fact, phones and internet were out until late this evening – and then there was another power-out. Ironical, really, because the weather has been cold and (mercifully) wet – ideal for catching up on reading posts and things.
At least these guys pictured at Illovo must be happy:
(While doing limericks: My response to the Mad Kane Limerick-off Monday – jejune)
A girl once remarked, ‘That’s jejune!’
On hearing a popular tune;
When asked angrily why,
Reply: ‘F-for such sky,
M-must have been; May is too soon!’
