Quick Update

Switch on summer, from a slot machine…

  • Week of 1-7 October.
  • Hello Summer.
  • This post is late, sorry dear blog readers, I’ve been distracted. I’ve been fighting commies, I think.
  • Monday, school holiday, woke up in Bakoven, work, Mia and I took Romeo for a walk on Beta beach and then Camps Bay beach, braai with Georg in Bakoven with some Fleetwood Mac, time well spent.
  • Lesson of the week: what gets measured gets managed.
  • “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.” — Mark Twain

  • Tuesday, just a random Tuesday, let’s be honest, I had at least two, maybe three things to feel bad about, things I said, hmm, Hussar steak for lunch with Mia, work, watched Whiplash – great movie, we watched The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at The Theatre on The Bay – good show, go watch it, time well spent.
  • I think it’s good to badly embarrass yourself from time to time. Keeps you humble.
  • “There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘Good Job’.” — Whiplash

  • Wednesday, work, we made scrambled eggs and avo, watched Infinity Express at the planetarium with Mia, Jacques and Charlotte, a walk around the museum, Company Gardens cafe, braai with Jacques, time well spent.
  • The upgraded planetarium is rad.
  • “Only the Sith speak in absolutes.” — Jacques

  • Thursday, up early, data fixes, work, we took Romeo far a walk around Oudekraal beach, Posticino pizza in Hout Bay, Hout Bay beach walk, we watched Moon, time well spent.
  • Friday, we made scrambled eggs and avo, watched Venom – very entertaining, found Mia a new book to read, dropped Mia off with her mom, chardonnay and Bodzin – what an epic set, time well spent.
  • Not my circus. Not my Monkeys.
  • Saturday, fruit salad, meeting day, hacked together a little python script, Georg, Adrian and I tested our limits with some Indian food, Bodzin and wine, time well spent.
  • Sunday, woke up at around 14:00, new record, mostly listened to some Bach (which made me want to watch Seven) and tried to find my elbow, Clifton 1st beach day with Romeo, braai with Dennis and Hugo, time well spent.
  • Less time wasting, more learning.
  • Tune of the week: Cat Stevens – Where Do the Children Play
  • Romeo loves Cat Stevens.

Have a fun week, crazy kids.
