Last Thursday, Rei and I had Theo, Kath and Richard over for dinner. It was super awesome because Theo was down and not working / shacked up with a boyfriend (so we never see her) for once. Theo spends most of her time at St Andrew’s in Scotland or in her native Greece, so it was an occasion to celebrate. Then someone discovered the fish-eye lens and that was the end of that.
Theo and Rich.
Rei and Kath on the balcony.
Me with alien lights.
Les macarons. If you're ever looking for a sweet treat that's just enough, try these melt-in-your-mouth macarons from Cassis in Gardens Centre. Truly - they must be tasted to be believed.

better late than never.
Rei queues patiently, comes prepared with iPod.
Some smug (but peaceful) chick in the queue.
The queue going down Kloof Street.
Signage. Important. Wish they'd had a 'you can go vote at a less busy station even if you registered here' sign.
Lots of fun was had by all. The End.

being a massive fan of taking photos (note how I don’t use the word photography, I’m anything but a photographer) I came across this awesome project called the Disposable Memory Project. in their words:
we’re leaving disposable cameras around the world.
hopefully, people will pick them up, take a few photos and pass them on, eventually returning home – so we can tell their stories.
they have some amazing shots in their collection. i really love this because i have a few old disposables and undeveloped rolls of film lying around my apartment (and even one in my bag) which I have yet to develop, and I have no idea what’s on them – how exciting, digital does not compare. i’ll get at least one developed this week. anyway you can totally get involved yourself. here’s how.
