Hello Luna and Ziggy

Last year we went through a really bad time when our dog and best friend, Jack, passed away.It took us a whole year to get past it (not over it), but we finally decided to get two puppies. Yes, TWO. We decided to call them Luna (Lovegood) and Ziggy (Stardust). They've been living with us for a week and I am absolutely in love with them! They are the brightest bitches on the block. On their second day living with us they already started roaming the garden, digging holes and attacking moths. Ziggy is much darker than Luna, and Luna has a white nose, where Ziggy has a dark one. Their personalities are quite similar, except that Ziggy is more cautious than...

Things that make me incredibly uncomfortable

1. When people make really crude sex jokes in front of me I often have a really dark mind, and I'm always the first to cave when a "That's what she said" joke presents itself. But I'm actually a total nun, and my alter-ego, Nunja, dies everytime someone makes vuil sex jokes in front of her. 2. "I'm so fat" comments I have no words to describe the discomfort I feel when someone who is so obviously overweight says that they're fat in front of a big group of people. When everyone's talking about clothes and things that don't fit them, and one person drops the, "At least you guys can wear that, I'm too fat" - awkward coughs and a lot of blinking...

Hello I’m Anja, and I suffer from chronic Seasonal Affective Disorder

Winter is coming, and it's causing me a great deal of anxiety. You see, I suffer from chronic Seasonal Affective Disorder, aka SAD. This past weekend we had our first autumn weather, and instead of enjoying it I was ready to Ingrid Jonker myself. It depressed me so much to see people tweeting about winter. My biggest problem with winter is that it is neverfuckingending. It always arrives too early and overstays its welcome. If winter could just stay in its allocated 3 months that would be fine, but noooooo it has to be from May to October. Winter is the only time of the year when Joburg has something better than Cape Town - sunlight and a spring that arrives on the...
