The End Of The World.

It came and it went.
Slept till late, all warm and fuzzy.
Watched six chapters of Breaking Bad.
Met some Italians for lunch at Cafe Paradiso.
(Now also part of the Madame Zingara empire, along with Cafe Mozart, The Bombay Bicycle Club, The Sidewalk Cafe, The White Rabbit Wash House, et cetera)
Accompanied my small companion to the kitchen for a spot of gingerbread baking. "Children's activities" - on the menu at ZAR45 a pop. Everything has a price, even if it is the last day of this mortal coil.
And as last days go, it was beautiful and it was balmy.

My favorite quote surrounding all of this hoo-ha is one by Sibongile Mafu: "The world is going to end and some of you will die wearing red skinny jeans and SpongeBob SquarePants t-shirts."
I spent most of the day in my pajamas.

Hey Lily
I notice you didn't say anything about the food at Cafe Paradiso??
just wondering...

Anna, you've caught me out.
the settings of these restaurants can't be faulted, the food sounds good on the menu, it even looks impressive. and then it's not that it's BAD, it's just never blown me away. kind of leaves me unimpressed.
great places to sit and have a few drinks, though.

My Saturday night was so rubbish I almost wished the world had ended that afternoon - then I'd have been spared the experience.
