I've got a sheet for my bed And a pillow for my head I've got a pencil full of lead And some water for my throat I've got buttons for my coat And sails on my boat So much more than I needed before I got money in the meter And a two bar heater Oh now it's getting hotter It's only getting sweeter I've legs on my chair and a head full of hair Got in a band And shoes on my feet I've got a shelf full of books And most of my teeth Two pairs of socks And a door with a lock I've got food in my belly and a License for my telly And nothin's gonna bring me down I've got a nice guitar and jazz in my car I've got most of the means and scripts for the scenes I'm out and about So I'm in with a shout Favorite chat but better than that Food in my belly and a License for my telly And nothin's, nothin's gonna bring me down And nothin's gonna bring me down Best of all I've got my baby (x 2) She's mighty fine and she's all mine And nothin's gonna bring me down

I'm sure there will be plenty more soccer themed shoots that we'll see before this time next year... this one complete with bloody knee and red card is from ZooZoom.

I'm doing some work for this client. Rebranding and packaging ideas that I'll share once the client has approved them. It's a really elegant concept for the connoisseur - a different selection of handmade chocolates sent to you monthly. Here is how to join.
The creators say that "If we were to imagine that a coffee table was a person, then the 'Tale of How' coffee table book should be considered to be some sort of fabulous wig or magical hat that the above-mentioned person could wear out to parties and things."
We had dinner at the Design Quarter last night. Another nice Jozi offering. Now if only the shops stayed open after 6 in Joburg. What's up with that...? Second thoughts, might have been better that they were closed. Not so sure about the shopping self control at the moment.
