My colleague sent the office a link to her favourite website this morning. Help Feed The Hungry…yes yes, there’s a whole bunch of us bleeding-heart do-gooders clogging up this office block. The atmosphere can be painfully like karma-ass-kissing-sweet syrup in here sometimes. Ah well, it helps me rationalise my after-hours reprobate behaviour.
I think I have crossed over the site before. And it has always puzzled me- this concept. Perhaps you, my delightfully clever blog visitors, can offer some insight.
It is one of those sites where you click on a button, and some corporate sponsor gives one extra meal to a starving child somewhere.
I always have to ask – why not just give the kid a meal that day anyway? Why does it require my access to a computer & the internet for some top notch honcho to release these charitable funds? Obviously the corporation already has the money ready at hand, & has budgeted for it, in case a troop of internetters stampede that site all on one particular day. So why be tight-fisted about the whole affair, just hand over all that you are willing to!
Or am I missing something?
I am not on the ball this morning. Too many disturbed dreams. And definitely not in a delightful kinky way. So that is all I have to ask & reflect on.
Tomorrow is marching day!! So get your ENOUGH WITH CRIME banners, loud screeching voices, and fists ready. My attendance is dependent on my ability to have an early night tonight, and drag myself out of bed tomorrow morning. Today’s attempt very nearly failed.
Sad, isn’t it…
My show of support for anti-crime initiatives might all depend on whether I can say “no” to that one last post-work drink this evening. And if I don’t find someone to, well, rechannel my womanly frustration towards.
South Africans are not an apathetic bunch. We just like our sleep.
Meanwhile, top of the news today is that some darling honeys released their SA film today. BUNNY CHOW. Go and watch it. Not in a sign of SA support, but because, knowing these hooligans, it is sure to cause many a laugh.
If it doesn’t, they owe you a drink.
Don’t mention my name though, should you have to claim it. Or expect them to know what you are going on about.
Happy Friday & Weekend!!
