So in the comments of one of my previous posts, hordes of you (okay, two... but that amount, sadly, makes up the majority of my readers) expressed concern (okay, so no, not concern exactly, but that has to do for now for lack of a better word. Yes, I know: I'm soooo eloquent!) that I've gotten... ha ha ha .... I can hardly write it because it's so funny...

Married!

ME? MARRIED?! NO! WHOAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Alas, I've NOT made an honorable gentleman out of the boy by turning him into a husband, nor do I intend to any time soon!

I don't think my dear Cherryflava read the entire post. Because after wondering what possibly could've led to this slight misunderstanding, I've concluded that he probably read the post title and assumed that when writing "Desperate Domestic Diva," I was referring to myself.

Or maybe, if he did read the whole post, he - being a South African IN South Africa and all - may not be aware of who exactly Martha Stewart is. Although, you've lived here too, Cherry, while Martha S was at the height of her "it's a good thing" success. Don't you remember her? The robotic blonde whose folded napkins make intricate origami seem like childish kindergarten art and whose idea of letting her hair down is to eat a whole pomegranate by herself?

Anyway, I know that wedding fever is in the air with her not-so-secret elopement to Vegas in a few days, and what with her and her recent weddings, but no Cherry and Martha, the only aisle I'm likely to walk down soon, is the how-to section's aisle in the bookstore.

Martha Stewart? Yes I know who she is....the Biggie Best woman that they threw into jail with her hand still stuck in the cookie jar.

Anyhow...it was'nt that, I think I was reading one of your posts late at night after one or two bottles of Cape Pinotage and developed this perception from a number of postings that you might have been preparing to tie the knot.
OK...so clearly no plans like that then.

Too bad....I was hoping to crack and invite to the event. I've got a serious collection of airmiles and haven't been to a good wedding in ages. Cape Town in December is a nightmare for locals. The place is crawling with tourists, traffic, the wind blows, the beaches are crowded....it's the best time to head out.

You do have a serious boyfriend though? So you never know...there still might be some planning required.

Ah, I shoulda known that it was overindulgence in the pinotage! I was starting to think that perhaps you were suffering from sun stroke after your hell run through the Kalahari! Glad to see that it was just your usual drunk and disorderliness.

Awwww. You'll make an honest man out of him one of these days.

Obviously your readers were simply confusing you with me. After all, my hair is kind of red. If you look at it in really direct sunlight.
By the way, when you're in the how-to section, would you look around and see if there's any books on "how to get rid of all the crap you bought while preparing for your wedding you stupid consumer you never needed any of it"?

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
