RE(D)PRESENT!

| | Comments (4)

I've finally descended from yesterday's little (what can I say? I'm understated!) sugar high, so now I have to resort to natural highs again, like the ones I derive from good ol'e fashioned caffeine via espresso IV's.

But today I received such great news that even the IV can wait a bit longer.

Remember how I was miraculously nominated in a few categories for the first ever South African Blog Awards? Remember how I so shamelessly hit you all up for votes?

No, my good news is not that I've won. The winners are yet to be announced, but unless you voted your little fingers off every day for a week I don't stand much of a chance anyway!

The big day is tomorrow. Ceremonies will be held in South Africa at venues in Cape Town and Johannesburg. But really, the awards are just an excuse to party. NOT that South Africans EVER need an excuse to party, mind you...

Since I'm a bit too far from those venues to attend, I jokingly asked whether I could send delegates on my behalf.

So in a very formal letter (in the form of a comment on his blog) I wrote: "May I please send delegates on my behalf? I have three sisters, two in Johannesburg and one near Cape Town. They are all hot."

I quickly received the following formal reply: "Hot sisters are always welcome!"

I forwarded all the information to the hot sisters in question and whaddayaknow? One very hot sister will be in attendance in Johannesburg tomorrow night!

So if you're in the area, and you want to meet one hot sister and a lot of other South African bloggers (yes, there are even MORE OF US out there!), be there tomorrow night at 7 PM (South African time), 11 AM (EST).

Disclaimer: The fact that I have three hot sisters does not, alas, mean that I am hot.

Yeah, unfortunately I'm like, NOT hot.

Why do I suddenly feel like Paris Hilton?

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!)
