Men: If women can't do, teach

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Friday, October 29, 2010,

"The fact that the screen came up blue with white writing means there's a big problem,” says my husband standing in the doorway of our bedroom, with clear annoyance on his face. I was still in bed, no doubt sporting bed hair and sleep in my eyes. He, meanwhile, was all suited and booted, ready for work and looking his usual dashing, clean shaven self.

My laptop has been crashing once every 30 minutes or so for a day this week. But before it crashes with all my unsaved work, a message f...

I'll give you a million dollars...

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Wednesday, October 27, 2010,

There's got to be a special place in hell for them. Their emails always start the same, and they have the most ridiculous spelling and grammatical mistakes. Here's one I got earlier:

'Dear Friend. This message might meet you in utmost surprise, However, it is just my urgent need for a foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction, I am a banker by profession in Burkina Faso currently holding the post of a director auditing and accounting section of the bank. I have the opp...

What's wrong pet?

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Thursday, October 21, 2010,

Last night in bed my husband lamented about how I call him pet names any chance I get. In the store, cinema, in front of friends the list goes on. Everyone now knows I call him 'monkey' he moaned. Well, everyone knows now that I've included it in this blog.

I did what every female does, and thought about it only to return with a come-back when he least expected it. So before he dosed off I said 'Hang on a minute, this is actually your fault'. Having almost hit slumber land he wondered what ...

How to lose a loser

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Friday, October 15, 2010,
You've got to hand it to him. I don't think the cheating Chilean miner expected his affair to be splashed out all over the news and on the internet. But secrets have strange way of making it to the surface.
Of course, his wife is not charmed and she doesn't look like a lady I would mess with. If I were Yonni Barrious, I would have thought twice about emerging out of the mine after 69 days. But he seemed unconcerned when he reached the top and hugged his mistress. His wife, understandably, ref...

Make the kids pay

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Monday, October 11, 2010,

I think the kids today are a bunch of woosies. They get a scrape, a cut, they fall from a tree, and when they hurt themselves they (or their parents) want to sue. They play in areas they aren't supposed to, get into trouble or hurt, but they don't get reprimanded and their ears pulled like in the good ol' days. No, they (or their parents) sue the company because the property THEY trespassed was not 'kid friendly' or did not meet 'health and safety standards' or the company did not do enough ...

Watching you like a hawk?

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Friday, October 8, 2010,

So now the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has told Cell C that it's a naughty child, wrapped it over the knuckles, and has asked it to shut down its 4G campaign. This happened after the ASA established that its campaign is 'misleading and dishonest'.

According to News24, the ASA investigated Cell C after complaints from MTN and Vodacom (wonder what was in it for them). News24 says that the complainants believed that Cell C's 4Gs logo is dishonest and misleading as consumers will mis...

Angelique in Wonderland

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Wednesday, October 6, 2010,

I have a good business idea. It’s not going to make me oodles of money, but it’s good. Well, at least I think so. I am not going to say what it is here, because it still needs a bit of research. But relaying the idea to a friend of mine left me deflated like a pricked balloon, because he jolted me back to reality and pointed out that there was still a lot to be done.

It’s true. There is still a lot to be done. There’s tons of stuff. What I needed was encouragement, or a pat on the ba...

What a waste

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Tuesday, October 5, 2010,

So England’s National Health Service (NHS) is thinking of providing obese people with cash incentives to slim down. According to an article in The Independent (see here) 402 people who have signed up for something called ‘Pounds for Pounds’ have already been paid up to £425 (R4,670) by the NHS primary care trust in Kent. The trial started in January 2009.

Hold the salad – but are you kidding me! Here I am struggling, like every other woman (and man), to keep the calories (or kiloj...

Biltong and dress sense

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Monday, October 4, 2010,

As I sit here munching away at my packet of fatty, chilli biltong, I can't help but wonder what all the fuss was about with Lady Gaga wearing that raw meat dress and clutching a meat purse? I mean sure she could have found someone more hip than Cher to hold the purse for her, but come on people wake up and smell the butchery!

Suddenly, all the animal activists on the planet were ready to tear Gaga a new one. They didn't hold anything back as they grilled the singer and claimed wearing a meat ...

No place like home

Posted by Angelique Ruzicka on Friday, October 1, 2010,
Hey all,

So this is my first blog. It's not my first ever piece of writing, but I am sure you gathered that from snooping around my website. I thought long and hard about what I should write about on my blog and then it hit me: KISS. As in: Keep it Simple Stupid!
And what would be more simple than writing about my home town, my place of birth: Cape Town. This glorious (Mother) city is, I think, the next best thing to sliced cheese (and I love cheese). Yes she can be a bit moody and get on your ...
