Pleased to meet you

So there they were in all their green glory. Except I didn’t really see them. Although I’m really glad we won the Rugby World Cup, I’m not so much a fan that I’d risk being crushed by hundreds (thousands?) of screaming, sweaty fans.

No thanks, for me the whole thing ended a day after the event. Enough already, I say. Net so ver en nie verder nie.

There was someone famous I did happen to go see a few days ago though. You’ll never guess…Jackie Collins.

She of the lined-eyes and puffy hair was at the opening of the new Wordsworth in the V&A (I kinda like the old Wordsworth because it was nice and cosy; this one has a coffee shop though).

Anyway, there were many a blue eyeshadowed-fan waiting to mee the woman who says she does not “write about sex”, she “writes about erotic sex”. She looked pretty normal albeit a bit glam for Cape Town (you know how we’re famous for dressing down).

Her accent was a cross between American and British but she’s obviously used to the attention. Wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and it was as much fun watching the fans as it was watching her.

Now that I’d rather do than stand in Adderley Street waiting for a bus full of testerone. At least at the bookstore I got free food and a book voucher.

    Jackie Collins? She of the quivering thighs and shaky bosoms?
    In her books I mean…my wêreld…

    I saw the bokke today. From the luxury of my own car!

    It was indeed she of the glossy-hair-flip and swollen, tumescent, er, members.
    Glad to hear you saw the Bokke. Just read now how a drunk Cape Town fan tried to steal the cup…ai jitte…

    Which part – the swollen members or the drunken fan?!

    Funky, she’s cool.

    My life is complete because I saw Westlife in the building yesterday.


    Their music might suck but DAMN those boys are hot!

    Don’t they look a bit gay though?
