No matter which way you pronounce it, I'm utterly delighted

I don't know if it's the accents (yes, plural, because as he has pointed out before, thanks to 11 official languages in South Africa, there are many ways to skin a cat and even more ways to pronounce it), but we "Sefrikans" make the most marvellous meanies.

You see, the newest villain to mastermind attrocities against the United States on this season's "24" is played by a South African-born actor named Arnold Vosloo.

And I couldn't be any prouder!

Red, you don't understand--my father, brother, and I are "24" addicts, as in: turn off the lights, hurt anyone who makes a sound, that kinda thing.

I can't believe that guy shares his motherland with you. I'm scared of him. He's mean. He wants all the nuclear power plants in the US to blow up and kill us all of radiation exposure!! Meanie!

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!)
