In Other News – 14 March 2012

Well, I’m back from my short trip to Cape Town, and what a blast the weekend was! I swam in a mineral water reservoir up at Silvermines, went hiking in a forest that was pulled straight out of the first Mortal Kombat film, sweated my ass off, played some Mass Effect 3 and got into a friendly knife-fight with a drunk uncle.

It truly was a great time, so big thanks to all of you various peeps that I met during my stay, made my weekend truly memorable. You guys all know who you are, because with my teflon coated skull, I’ve most likely forgotten already.
