The temperatures in Harare are scorching, I was sweating like a pig by 7:30am this morning… that’s the African sun for you. Was reading on bbc.com about how China has pledged to double its aid to Africa and provide $5bn in loans and credits over the next three years. I don’t know whether to rejoice or cry at that coz we need the aid, but at what expense, there is nothing for mahala. So is it only business on the Chinese side or just more debt for the African continent. I just hope that it is sustainable investment, aimed at helping the working man so as to decrease the astronomical inflation that Zim is facing. I mean at this rate we will be facing inflation of 2000% by the new year. Guess the weather is not all that is hot.

Oct

Kinda… if nothing else i have learnt how to use CSS, and do quite a bit of layout stuff… now to get the colours and fonts just right <sigh>. All part of procrastinating. My studying is not going well at all, I am like two days behind, have to call boss Gibs and tell him i need more time, the study guide is great but it has so much extra stuff that it’s unbelievable… and I have to call the girls and tell them Girl Guides is cancelled this week, and I have to buy me a lunch box… a day in Di’s life <sigh>

Rihanna – Unfaithful

Oct
12

I love the tune to this song, but the lyrics are so sad, so raw. Why do we hurt each other so much?

Story of my life
Searching for the right
But it keeps avoiding me
Sorrow in my soul
Cause it seems that wrong
Really loves my company
He’s more than a man
And this is more than love
The reason that the sky is blue
The clouds are rolling in
Because I’m gone again
And to him I just can’t be true
And I know that he knows I’m unfaithful
And it kills him inside
To know that I am happy with some other guy
I can see him dying
I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna be the reason why
Every time I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside
I don’t wanna hurt him anymore
I don’t wanna take away his life
I don’t wanna be
A murderer
I feel it in the air
As I’m doing my hair
Preparing for another date
A kiss upon my cheek
As he reluctantly
Asks if I’m gonna be out late
I say I won’t be long
Just hanging with the girls
A lie I didn’t have to tell
Because we both know
Where I’m about to go
And we know it very well

Cause I know that he knows I’m unfaithful
And it kills him inside
To know that I am happy with some other guy
I can see him dying

I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna be the reason why
Every time I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside
I don’t wanna hurt him anymore
I don’t wanna take away his life
I don’t wanna be
A murderer

Our love, his trust
I might as well take a gun and put it to his head
Get it over with
I don’t wanna do this
Anymore
Uh
Anymore (anymore)

I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna be the reason why
And every time I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside
And I don’t wanna hurt him anymore
I don’t wanna take away his life
I don’t wanna be
A murderer (a murderer)

No no no no

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

no no no no no no NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Got this in an email 😀

One day Mrs. Jones went to have a talk with the minister at the local church. “Reverend,” she said, “I have a problem, my husband keeps falling asleep during your sermons. It’s very embarrassing. What should I do?” “I have an idea,” said the minister. “Take this hatpin with you. I will be able to tell when Mr. Jones is sleeping, and I will motion to you at specific times. When I motion, you give him a good poke in the leg.” In church the following Sunday, Mr. Jones dozed off. Noticing this, the preacher put his plan to work. “And who made the ultimate sacrifice for you?” he said, nodding to Mrs. Jones. “Jesus!”, Jones cried as his wife jabbed him the leg with the hatpin. “Yes, you are right, Mr. Jones,” said the minister. Soon, Mr. Jones nodded off again. Again, the minister noticed. “Who is your redeemer?” he asked the congregation, motioning towards Mrs. Jones. “God!” Mr. Jones cried out as he was stuck again with the hatpin. “Right again,” said the minister, smiling. Before long, Mr. Jones again winked off. However, this time the minister did not notice. As he picked up the tempo of his sermon, he made a few motions that Mrs. Jones mistook as signals to bayonet her husband with the hatpin again. The minister asked, “And what did Eve say to Adam after she bore him his 99th son?” Mrs. Jones poked her husband, who yelled, “You stick that goddamned thing in me one more time and I’ll break it in half and shove it up your ass!” “Amen,” replied the congregation.

A new day

Feb
10

So another new day. I went to church with Ricarda and it was a mass for confirmation applicants. The applicants had prayers intentions that were handed out. I took a prayer intention written by one of the applicants. The applicant is asking for help with their faith, that’s what the prayer states. You know spreading the love and all that, I even have to light a candle when I say a prayer for the child.  Hmm must think up a prayer in my own words too. I forgot to ask when I can go for confession though. Maybe tomorrow at Opus Dei.
