getaway

the dudes in my family went on a big bad bike trip this past weekend.  they had several burst tyres when going through the tankwa karoo. so if you ever decide to do that… take lots of spares. i wish you could take a train right through the karoo – i would LOVE that! and i don’t mean the typical blue train route… more off the beaten track. kind of impossible to take a train to Die Hel though.

bored to death

“leaking toxins from where?”

bored to death is a new show on HBO. ok wait – this has jason schwartzman, zach galifianakis AND ted danson in it. it also has a great tagline: “a noir-rotic comedy”. i bet it never airs in south africa, or gets cruelly cancelled before it reaches our shores (much like arrested development, or something)

confession: i used to have a total crush on ted danson when i was a kid! yes, something about his dry wit / sarcasm. there was cheers, of course, but i LOVED him in 3 men and a baby / little lady. hah. come on, i was only 7ish. anyway, he’s like the original hugh laurie.

now i have a semi-crush on jason schwartzman and zach galifianakis. don’t really have a type, i guess.

I am not to be truffled with sound bite

I’ve said many times before that 30 Rock is my favourite show. The Office comes in at a very close second (if not a tie). The US Office, that is. I can watch these back to back, over and over. So glad that Season 6 is out.

(there’s a sound bite above, for those of you viewing this in rss readers)

berlin

i didn’t take a lot of photos in berlin, so i guess this isn’t an accurate description of what i saw & took in on my trip there. when you travel so much you sometimes get lazy on the photography front, thinking it will be all good & you’ll just remember it all. but you don’t! you should take pics all the time.
