things we lost and gained in the fire

'I don't know if people are gonna be receptive to us blogging again' - Jana

'As the ocean "waves", the universe "peoples"' - Alan Watts

Due to popular demand we have decided to make a comeback. Obviously some people will be upset by this but as famous Barbadian professor Rihanstein once said, 'don't let the bastards get you down.' Things to look forward to in this new era are Roger's birthday, Ané's wedding, Fabi's funeral and nothing about Jana at all.

Here's a list of things we've lost and gained in the fire (it was really nothing):

  • Nelson Mandela 
  • Weight
  • Martin Magner
  • Ian Jepson (not sure if we lost or misplaced him)
  • This flower:

  • An Instagram follower and a fiancé

  • Bank cards
  • A year
  • Southern Arizona
  • Roger Young (and possibly some expired film)
  • Bloody Mary (Jana is worried that if she doesn't start drinking Bloody Marys she'll get kicked out of the Williams.)
  • Keats and Yeats are on your side:

  • Make up
  • Meaning
  • Celebrity mattresses
  • Beyonce's secret album, but Fabi doesn't care
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman, but Jana doesn't care
  • Raees romances
  • American Dreams

  • Crack
  • Surprisingly not our ability to blog 
  • Lefty's (Roger Young is a celebrity)
  • Carine's washing machine, blender and this:

  • Negotiation Skills
  • Boobs  "They so big this week" - Ané  
  • Raees' girlfriend has a nice voice and Raees has a girlfriend. Raees has a girlfriend.
  • John Wizards
  • Fabi taking photos

  • Kina and Marianna asking for lifts from Cape Town to Mossel Bay
  • Fabi's cat, Molly:

  • Meghan's cat, Romeo:

  • Rhetorical questions:

  • Free shoes.

  • Work for idle hands to do
  • A genuine country boy
  • Meghan Ho-Tong

The more things change, the more they stay insane:

For there are brighter sides to life 
And I should know, because I've seen them 
But not very often
Under the iron bridge we kissed 
And although I ended up with sore lips 
It just wasn't like the old days anymore 
No, it wasn't like those days
