I tried to blog yesterday but for some reason the blogger site was down or something and it wouldn't let me. Can you ever forgive me for leaving that little sliver of my life blank...?
Today when I returned from going to a meeting with my supervisor (for which, he was late for a change!), and then going to the zoo, my dad gave me an article to read from the newspaper. It was the 'Stoep talk', a daily comment section that is almost always hysterically funny. This particular one was about the responces of a group of children aged 4 to 8 yrs old to the question, 'What is love?' These were some of my favourite responces.
"When somebody loves you, the way that they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth" - Billy (4)
"Love is when a girls puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other" - Karl (5)
"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your french fries without making them give you any of theirs" - Chrissy (6)
"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend you hate" - Nikka (6)
"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones" - Lauren (4)
"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget" - Jessica (8)
And my favourite: "Love is what's in the room at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen" - Bobby (7)
Well, I hope you feel that your life has more meaning now. I have yet to read the rest of the paper.
Random Fact Of The Day:

Hmmm...a true heart stopper.
Todays photo is of a little girl, named Gemma, who came over to myself and a group of friends while we were building a sand castle on the beach. We didn't know her from a bar of soap but she decided that we looked like we needed her guidance. In this photo she is seated at the throne that was originally intended to be a castle. Her dad is standing off to the side while a friend of mine, Alice stands in the background. I sometimes wonder what happened to Gemma...
