so we had a IG writer’s dinner to welcome some new grasses and get to know some of our current grassing superstars. we made a lot of noise and annoyed our waitress at Bacini thoroughly. Amu, our regional manager if Jozi and the new producer on Sbu’s morning show on YFM, managed to make it down to spend some time with us, too.
it was also Jacky’s birthday. Jacky helps us out all the time. we’re not sure why, but it must be out of the goodness of her heart. so we threw her a little party at the office with some fantastic carrot cake from Limnos, and we gave her this T-shirt. we know she’s been waiting for it all her life.
and then this is just a rad hoody i found on Ricky Lee’s back. Ricky runs a super cool company called Word of Art, as well as a clothing label you might have heard of called Muthaland. he also has a company called writeonafrica, which does commission based graffiti.

this is a must-have for our grasses, who are forever telling us about how security in malls and branded parties are asking them to delete their photos. pity about how the glasses actually look, but maybe Spitfire can get in this asap.

the way our company works is we have a bunch of trendspotters – we call them ‘grasses’ – who we give cameras to so that they can go take photos of their lives. here are some cool pics i’ve found while doing a bit of work this evening:
