10 things I've learnt recently

1. Getting woken up, in the middle of the night, by a crazed meowing cat in your bedroom is bit freaky - especially when you don't even own a cat.
2. Magic City is a really cool TV show. It's set in Miami in the late 1950's.
3. I'm a bit of a sushi piggy. I nearly always order more sushi than I can eat (above photo was taken at Willoughby's - my favourite sushi spot in Cape Town).
4. I love my personalised nail polish from Pretty Please (will blog about it soon)
5. Sometimes you just have to forget what your head is saying and follow your heart
6. THIS is one of the funniest cat video's I have seen in a while.
7. My hair and I are very over this super cold, rainy weather.
8. I am starting to really like Google Plus. I think I like it more than Facebook.
9. Often we are the only ones holding ourselves back - HERE are 30 things everyone should stop doing to themselves (a great read)
10. I totally agree with this quote by Anna Wintour: ""Nobody wants to be inundated. There is so much out there. What we need is fewer things, better edited"

    Why American men should boycott American women

    Boycott American Women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.


  6. Personalised nailpolish is such a great idea! (Makes the perfect little gift too...) Will have to check out if any companies in the UK do this.

    Loved the 30 things link - some very good suggestions there!

  7. Intense sushi craving right now. Thanks a lot, Brazen :)

  8. Ten things I've learnt recently? The service at Krugerman's in Waterfront can be really pathetic sometimes. YDE is having a sale. Ramadaan will be starting soon! And if you've ever had any doubts about your place in the pecking order, go apartment hunting. (Note: I can't afford any of the apartments that I really like.)

  9. I miss sushi. It's my summer food and have been pigging out on comfort winter foods.
    I have learnt that I need to spend less time at work - for real this time
