Heating Pad

My colleague got me this electric hot water bottle / heating pad whatsit. It's a peculiar thing and the packaging is rather hilarious. I'm not sure at all sure how safe it is.

National Road

I took a drive along the N2 this morning, heading to Swellendam for the weekend. It was good to leave the bad weather behind in Cape Town - the Overberg was bright and sunny, green and lovely.

This week I've been watching a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory. I'm not finding it nearly as funny as I used to. The characters just seem mean and silly. I think I'm over it.

Cat v Printer

I watched this video again today - had to show my colleague that his customer sounds exactly like this cat. Because of my issues with office equipment I completely relate. Youtube says the video has been watched ten million times - I'm sure half of those are me. It always makes me laugh!
