All the world's a stage and all the men and women
Put on masks to strut upon it.
Masks and gaudy costumes
To hide they shabiness the feel within.

They hide their beauty behind layers of paint,
They flaunt what should remain hidden
For all the world to stare at.
Such love and energy
Wasted on affected ennui
Such beauty never seen
Eyes cast down fingers always busy

Learn to love what we all do
Learn to look like we do too.
If we say it is worthy of admiration
It is so, never question.
Never ask why or by what virtue it deserves
To be so admired above ll others more worthy
Just go along, follow me and me and me...

Speak just so
Strive for perfect diction
But did you know
That truth is more beautiful than fiction.

MANNATECH - wellness revolution and business opportunity


Money is scarce these days and especially now so soon after the Christmas spending frenzy. I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering how to stretch those last few Rands till payday. Well why wait till that beep beep comes from the bank on the 25th when you can generate more income in your spare time. And who knows you could retire in a few years and spend the rest of your days just having to worry about how to get that little white ball into that tiny hole from wayyyyyy down the fairway.

Amplats - collateral damage

I've been reading about and listening to all this to and fro about the fact that Amplats may have to cut about 14000 jobs and I feel for the people who's jobs will be made redundant. It sucks to not have a job. It's like the sword of Damocles hanging over your head always there always preventing you from taking any joy out of life. It's like you might think "Oh what a lovely day it is today." but in the back if your mind there's that voice saying "Ja boet but you don't have a job so screw the nice day and go look for one." Always pissing on your parade.
As a husband and a father it feels somehow even worse. I feel like I've failed my family; the people who depend on me to provide for them. I know its not true, that I haven't, but there's that little fucking voice again that says "yep yoooouuuu're a failure". I hate my inner voices they never have anything nice to say.
So I was reading an article in The New Age entitled Will there be calm after the storm at Anglo? which puts forward the company's viewpoint and I feel that maybe there is a good point there. The people who will lose their jobs are worth thinking about. I mean these are breadwinners in their households who will lose the ability to provide for their families. But thinking of the other side of the coin; if Amplats goes bust how many more people will lose their jobs.

Day three

So its another day. Still no job in sight. I'm just trailing around town again killing time. It's becoming quite depressing actually. I feel somehow unwanted. Discarded like something someone had thrown away. And so early in the game. Doesn't bode well. Still I can't give up. There has got to be something out there for me.

At this point I'm prepared to do even part time work just to fill the empty hours in each day. I can't stand not doing anything. I've been working almost every day for 16 years and I find myself unable to figure out how to spend all the free time I find myself having. I don't want it. Take it away and bring me a job. Chop chop.
