Ambience: * * * *
Babe Count: * * * * *

Okay, so the babe count tonight is exaggerated. That's because S isn't here right now. So it should be zero. But I've got a photo of her. And a bunch of her dirty clothes are in my laundry heap. So I can smell her when I want to. Which gives my place a babe count of five on the Roy-o-metre. That's cos S is my uber-babe. And we're happily in love.

This is Taddy Blecher. He co-created CIDA, a free university in Joburg's city centre. He talked at the event I was sketching at. Made me cry. And most of the people in the place cried too. Awesome stuff.As for the food and service... well... it's Woolworth's bachelor food. Quiche Lorraine tonight. With an Ola Magnum Light for dessert.

And the ambience is up there too, cos I'm playing my iRIVER on shuffle, and there's about ten days worth of music on it. Yeah!

I've just spent the entire day drawing. I recently went on a conference with THE MISSING LINK guys and their clients. I volunteered to be the resident portraitist. I foolishly thought I could easily bash out a sketch every five or so minutes.

Well, the weekend was about two weeks ago. At the event, I managed to draw about twenty pics. And delivered a further forty or so to MISSING LINK via email a week later. After drawing all day today, I sent D'ave a further twenty-three pics. I have thirty-two left to draw. Ayeeeee! My eyeballs are bleeding, mon!

And I've got a writing deadline for three o' clock tomorrow afternoon. Spent all of Friday afternoon in a coffee-shop smashing away at my laptop to meet a five o' clock deadline for the preliminary script. Cracked that.

Also, tomorrow I hear from a potential client whether a little company I'm a partner in has won the pitch to design everything for a phone card business. Spent all of Friday morning sorting the pitch out. Lunchtime we pitched. Chanel and I. Maybe soon POTION DESIGN will be on the map. Wish me luck.

Sheesh. It's been a busy month. Tons of stuff. Loads of creativity. And I'm feeling satisfied.

It really feels great to be in a delicious relationship with a mega-babe. Sigh. Amazing how polyamory thoughts just seem to evaporate when you're with someone you realllllly wanna be with.
