Blog Updates and Relevant Whatnot*
When Ang is on her A-game these emails are dispatched like clockwork on a weekly (blog updates) and monthly (relevant whatnot) basis. Sometimes she’s not, in which case months will go by without so much as a word from us.
Should you come to realise over time (or immediately) that our missives aren’t for you, please feel free to unsubscribe.
That said, rather than taking such drastic steps right off the bat why not hit reply and tell us what you’re not happy with and maybe we can figure things out together. That way if we do eventually end up going our separate ways at least we’ll know it wasn’t for lack of trying.
*Whatnot refers to anything we deem to be interesting, funny, thought provoking, informative, mind blowing or inspiring and may from time to time also include some underpanty airing. Because why not, right?
One last thing. we’ve started an old school writing project with a long-term goal of sending a postcard to every country in the world. According to Sporty (who consulted Google) there are 196 countries in the world. Unless you don’t count Taiwan (not everyone does) then it’s 195.
So far we’ve sent postcards to a few states in the US, one to Ireland, one to Belgium, a couple to Canada and one to Perth, Down Under. If you live in Russia, China, Abu Dhabi or India send us your address and we’ll mail you some old school love. If you don’t want to subscribe, but still want a postcard, that’s cool too. We’re all about spreading joy and happiness however we can.
In the latter half of 2002 we returned home after spending almost two years in Toronto. We loved it there, but sweet Jesus it was cold. We came back with a suitcase full of clothes and box of appliances that didn’t work (this was pre-minimalism when we still felt it necessary to drag stuff across the globe because, you know, we’d bought it).
We had no home, no car, no nothing, bar a job for Sporty. A couple of months later, once we’d re-settled in our hometown, we bought a refurbished vee-dub that looked a lot like the one in this picture. Ang was smitten. She named her Joan and became instantly possessive and over-protective (think helicopter parenting on steroids).
We eventually sold Joan when we moved to Cape Town and while we don’t miss owning a car, Ang still misses our lil’ vee-dub. 😉
Why are we telling you this? Because Ang liked the picture and needed an excuse to share it.
