Never underestimate the power of a Potato, dear reader. Seriously. Ever felt a little down and reached for the potato chips or fries and instantly felt better? That's what I'm talking about. And don't forget the cheese... rich, creamy cheese... followed by equally creamy ice cream and decadent chocolate. Nothing like a feast to numb the void, clog the arteries and intoxicate the senses.
So, after some deliberation, it has been decided that I am indeed, overdue for a vacation. Thanks to LL for those 4 epic words. It's like the puzzle came together and suddenly made sense. See, we're not meant to be slaving away, day in and day out, in places that lull you into a false sense of security while they rob you of your soul, taxing you for the pleasure too. It all eventually catches up with you, and the only way to escape is either through substance abuse or a good old fashioned holiday.
Problem is, I've hardly had the opportunity to take some time off with my hectic schedule over the past year, but I'm beginning to think that I have to MAKE the time. In any case, it seems like my prayers were answered. I'm reluctantly glad to announce that the winds of change have arrived, along with this odd bout of winter in the middle of summer in Johannesburg. Reluctant because I'm hoping that its change for the better and not worse. Damn, I should have wished for a million bucks.
