weekly round up vibes: soccer, balls and witches

self-discovery is really important. in this day and age, knowing yourself is almost as important as knowing your enemies when it comes to keeping a competitve edge in the advertising industry. this week i discovered something about myself that i never knew: i am freaking petrified of a soccer ball. luckily i discovered this while i was on the soccer pitch, about to make Jupiter proud as the only (legitimate) girl, so i was able to face my fears right there and then. i faced them by turning my back on the ball and running the other way. in me, the survival instinct is strong. some snaps of the event:

Very enthusiastic crowd of supporters despite awful wind. Note the sign in the background.

The sign in the background reads:

“Yet another pitch TBWA wasn’t invited to.”

Very funny. Much LOL. Jupiter’s doing (in fineprint it reads jobs@jupiterct.co.za). One of the highlights of the evening was Fred getting into a fight with some dude from FCB. There was pushing and shoving and pulling apart – for reals. Great stuff. I wouldn’t want to fight with Fred. I mean, who would.

Crazy eyes. Our Fred.

The old open your beer with your teeth trick. Our Fred.

Fred may be mad, but to his credit he once went an entire day without noticing that we’d placed a penis in a picture frame on his desk. He has that kind of focus. That dedication to his craft as Creative Director that makes him so valuable. Also, he’s French, and can make your ‘fuck’ sound like ‘oh poo’. All-in-all, much fun was had, despite the freezing wind.

on Friday, Good Hope FM came to the agency and we planted VonBrandis’s fart machine right beneath the DJ’s mike to make things a little more interesting. of course, what seemed like sheer genius at the time fell a little flat since we couldn’t hear it going off. we hope listeners did though.



Ha Ha Fart Machine LOL Shhhh.

the weekend went by pleasantly – spent most of it lazing in the sun trying to brown the pasty chops since it was the first fully sunny hot as hell weekend since the piffly teasers we’ve been having. went shopping on sunday and was totally talked out of buying OMO by one of the Skip witches, who are totally the coolest promo ladies i have seen in a while. the fact that i’m talking about promo ladies says a whole lot.

stuff white people like – blog of the week

whew. after a heavy weekend fielding emails from people telling me i’ve been ‘OWNED’ by posting 90dayjane (i’m not removing the post as it’s done great things for traffic and um, YOU’RE the ones googling it in any case) i’ve come across a gem of a blogspot location entitled Stuff White People Like. i’m not ashamed to say i’ve spent my sunday evening there.
do yourself a favour and check it out.

got a new vehicle. thanks toyota.

and it’s a yaris! and it’s black, and i had that anti smash-and-grab film put on the windows it so it’s also quite gangster. which i quite like. anyhow nobody told me buying insurance was as painful as it was. standard bank originally quoted me R700 odd, and then told me flat out i wouldn’t get a better rate. so i called first for women, and they offered me R426 monthly premium, which is a lot better. then i went to dial direct who gave me the best rate, R416 a month with a R1 575 excess.

note that none of them told me i could bring my excess down by adjusting my monthly premiums, which is quite dodge, i think. it was sitting at R2 500 before i asked about it. all’s well that ends well and dialdirect got my business. i quite like the fact that most insurance comes with perks, like free roadside assistance etc etc. i didn’t know that they did.

indicator lessons

so, i got my black Yaris T3+ on Friday. it’s a great little car but it feels enormous inside. very bubble and safe-feeling. and you also sit quite high on the road, which i enjoy. and i like anything that wins rafety rating contests. i also like pretty things and do believe it’s the nicest looking of that category hatch at the moment.
