So last night while lying on my couch I am convinced I saw a little gaggle of penguins rush past, bounded after by a polar bear in search of frozen popciles. I really hope the eskimos downstairs don't get wind of my wildlife sanctuary - I am just not in the mood for spear throwing & holes-in-the-ice fishing while I try to watch my dvds.
Fuck me, but it is cold!
I actually am seriously thinking I am gonna give blankets & clothes to random homeless people I come across. Highveld radio was talking about drop-off points for such donations so maybe I will visit those rather than cruise Hillbrow searching in dark corners. The thought of even rehashing Std 4 knitting classes has passed through my hypothermia'ed mind.
Last week I visited Bara hospital with a friend to drop off little beanies, vests & blankets some ousies had knitted at their old age home. The clothes were for the premature babies in the "Kangaroo ward". These babies are not put in incubators but rather get their warmth & love from sleeping on their moms' chests in a heated ward. The doctor told us that such small donations were extremely important as many of these babies die in the winter.
So I might be struggling to keep my chilled fingers typing this but, man, I am one lucky chick. Just a thought.
