Weekly Ten

Hello everyone. Well my timelines are still chock full of stuff to share (the quote above was on Phumzile van Damme’s Twitter feed, not sure the original source), so here we are again for some more. Grab a cup of your favourite brew, and let’s see what made it into my top ten his week.

We’ll start with Ben Trovato, shall we? Here he unpacks the violence in “Well, that was a weird atttempted coup.”

Rebecca Davis wrote this for Mandela Day. I really enjoyed it.

Anyone seen the sofa?

I’m still not sure about this “brutally open letter” to squirrel…what do you think?

I know there’s a lot this week on the aftermath of the looting, but this was good, Mark Gevisser – “A dream deferred”.

Let’s move abroad, shall we? This is the offensive post this week – skip it if you don’t like profanity. I didn’t watch or read much about the new space race between the wealthy members of the patriarchy, because – well actually I’m not going to explain it. This was funny, though.

Here’s some good written words about it. The headline is the FT – which is behind a paywall, but the link will take you to an article by Luke Savage.

Some good news – we Gautengers may not be able to visit Umhlanga, but soon (after our second jabs) we can go to France – oui? Oui.

And the music – found this version of Bad Habits by Ed Sheeran, which is not at all bad.

This is sad – Dr. Brytney Cobia telling patients it’s too late for the vaccine.

Twitter feed – “Only in Britain would a road look like this”. South Africans.. “Hold my beer”. Read the comments, they’re hilarious.

We are on about 12/10, and you’re still here. Waiting for the cute pets post ? Here it is.

Ok, I’m done – last one is how cold it was in Gauteng this week. And SA, actually. The link is to the Twitter post where the weather service warned us IN CAPS. With exclamation points. Loved Robyn Porteous’s take on it.

That’s really all for today. Have a great weekend everybody, and keep the content coming.
