The Anti-Blogging Conspiracy


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!’
