I finally understand why Joburgers are so angry

Today was going to be a good day. I’d leave early. Be Super Productive. Get a pedicure. Pack for the cruise tomorrow. Be awesome.

And my plan started well: I left home at 7.20am (calm, serene in my timeliness) instead of 8.15am (running, gulping coffee, forgetting lunch). The petrol light went on almost as soon as I pulled out of the driveway, but why worry about that because at this time of day I’d zoom into work, zip into a petrol station, and zap into the office, all before 8am.

UNTIL. I forgot in my naivety that I am CURSED to arrive at the office at 8.50m NO MATTER WHAT TIME OR ROUTE I TAKE .

From a Good Wife addict | Season 5 music compilation

Unlike El Boyfriendo, who is basically a well educated puppy (he loves digging in the garden too), I can happily, easily, and with much joy plop down in front of the TV and watch an entire TV season from start to finish on a Sunday.

One series that’s captivated my attention and that I LOVE is the The Good Wife. And what really kicked Season 5 up a few notches for me was the amazing soundtrack! David Buckley did a phenomenal job of writing an excellent score, and the other music was pretty great too.

So, because I am really quite lovely, I’ve collected most of the music from Season 5 below – with much help from a site I found called TuneFinder. Enjoy!

Bleugh | Fit Bitch

I don’t have the brain capacity to write (does this week have TWO Mondays??) so here are some funny pictures. Also one day left on these hundred healthy days – need to see how I’ve done (ANXIETY).

Jammin’ Hump Day track

When I’m writing, I like to plug into 8tracks and let the music roll over me while I try to squeeze out words . After my playlist finished, this song came up and I felt chills – some songs just strike you that way.

I have NO idea what the lyrics mean, and a quick google of ‘beggin’ for thread’ leads only to the song. So if there’s some secret meaning or it’s code for illicit behaviour, please share in the comments!

In the meanwhile, here’s a song you might like:

No Miss South Africa | Fit Bitch

I remember as a little girl one of my absolute favourite things to watch, after Alvin and the Chipmunks (the movie), was Miss World.


I don’t watch Miss World anymore, but as a little girl the beautiful women, the shiny outfits, and the gorgeous high heels and perfect Barbie doll stomachs in swimming costumes all filled me a sense of wonder and magic.


A part of me wonders if that’s why I was never happy with my body. Not once.

Enough is enough | Fit Bitch

It finally happened. I got sick of being this person:

Suddenly, over the weekend, the final straw landed on the camel’s back and I realised I was actually gatvol. Gatvol of fighting with my wardrobe, gatvol of feeling blerghy, heavy, ugly and sluggish. And gatvol of dreading summer.

Like all my epiphanies, it was Pinterest inspired and this was the quote that pushed me over the edge:
