Yes, Eengleesh Ees Not Our Mother Tongue

| | Comments (8)

The other day, whilst talking to an English-speaking friend, my mom proudly told her about this blob I have which can be found on the internet.

A little later, as my mom and above-mentioned friend were discussing my immediate career prospects (or lack thereof), my mom, in a serious tone, said: "I think it's time for Red to set herself some goal posts."

(P.S. In case my mom happens to read this particular blob post, I have to add that she really REALLY does speak fluent English.)

What do you do post goal post, that's what I wonder?

I still reckon you should get a job with some travel agency and become a travel writer. That way you can travel the world on other people's money and visit AU-STRA-LI-AAAAAA!!!

Lots of South Africans will surely be curious about us in the wake of these Commonwealth Games we're having at the moment ...

I could send you some pictures of me in the shower. Then you'd definitely have a blob on the internet.

Red Dahling,
You can write a travel book about living in the the US(from the South African point of view). I also agree that you should try getting a job in a travel agency. Your practically an expert on the United States;you only lived here for almost a decade. Have you heard from the boy lately? Has he sent your stuff? Do I need to go over there and get things moving? How are you doing w/o your starbucks fix ?

So great. I still tease my mom about the time she seriously, and with a highly concerned face, told me about a friend of ours whose daughter had recently been diagnosed with "AC/DC."

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!)
