random post of nothingness.

I have nothing so say...which my husband might be shocked to hear,but I thought I would post anyway.

I am back in Joburg, along with the husband this time, for work. Driving into work from the airport this morning, I realised how at home I feel in Joburg. It's weird, I almost feel, calm more relaxed...which is probably the biggest joke, because Joburg is way more hectic than Cape Town, and of course the crime part is worse, so you would think I would be way more stressed out. But for some reason, I just don't. I think its the familiarity of Joburg, I basically know where everything is, and if I don't (because this place is massive), I more or less know how to find it. I know how Joburg people drive, compared to the drivers in Cape Town, who are clueless...only kidding!
And even though I love Cape Town, and feel at home there it still feels like a strange place in some ways...so it's good to be back in Jozi. I feel excited about coming back.

Is anyone else addicted to the US elections? Oh my word, it's better than a soap opera. The husband and I have been glued to the TV, and cannot wait for today. We obviously have our favourite, but I don't think its appropriate for me to be posting my little opinion, about something we are not involved in...once again my husband is probably rolling on the floor in laughter...me not giving my opinon on something?

On the subject of voting, I am a BIG believer in voting, no matter who you vote for, I fully believe that you should vote. I know so many people who could not be bothered to vote and its so frustrating to me...which could be us next year. Voter registration is next weekend, and we need to register in Cape Town, but we wont be in Cape Town for the election. And then we can't register in Joburg because we wont be in Joburg over voter registration! I am so frustrated, it kills me not to vote. Going to see if there is a way around it, there must be.

Oh my word, for some one who has nothing to say, this post is bloody long...my husband might actually be right?

are you not still registered in jhb, from when you lived here? there is a number you can sms, that will tell you where you are registered. i agree with you on the voting, it's something everyone should do.

my son is also addicted to the election soap-opera, and came to benoni from university, and is spending the night at his grandparents, awake, watching tv. we don't have dstv. he has also blogged about it.

are you going to take up scrapbooking when you are back in benoni?...

To check if you are registered to vote and if you are eligible to vote as Jacki suggests you need to sms your ID No. to 32810.

Hey Jacki,

I am registered to vote in Alberton, so as a last resort i can go there, but my husband is not - shame on him :-) so we just need to get him sorted.

How exciting have these elections been? I am so happy wih the outcome, his speech this morning was amazing...just makes me want to live there more.

I tried the whole scrap booking thing once, but I wanted to scrap every single photo I had, so it got really expensive...i think i should give it another try...now that I have an expert as a friend :-)

For someone with nothing to say you sure as heck had a lot to say....

Ha ha, I love the image of your husband rolling around laughing at your not having something to say, and then not sharing your opinion! Classic.
