A moment of silence, please

| | Comments (5)

Today marks the one year anniversary of the demise of my precious American Dream.

I think I'm still so heartbroken about it, because its two brutal murderers got off scot free.

If you happen to find yourself in my beloved United States (or any other country that serves Starbucks), please head on over and have a grande latte on my behalf? I still suffer withdrawal symptoms...

Also, if it's not too much trouble, pet a dog and think about me. A large yellow labrador retriever will be especially ideal, but I don't discriminate, so really, any dog will do.

In memory of Redsaid's American Dream: November 10, 1996 - December 24, 2005. Rest in pieces.

Coming in a bit late, but Merry Christmas! I'm going for a holiday in the States... they won't seem the same without you. (Pedantically-minded readers may point out that since I've never been to the States before, they can't seem like the 'same' at all, but you know what I mean)

Grand latte, you say? If you insist. Or if you don't insist!

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!)
