The “Elephant in the Room” this morning was that Sias predicted that Serena Williams would win all four grandslams this year. By now, you know of course, that the fetching Ana Ivanovic beat Serena over the weekend. Gareth was very kind to Sias, and didn’t make much of a deal of it, thankfully. Obsessive discussions on sport is so boring, we are truly blessed that Gareth focused on drama at school.
The other “Elephant in the Room” is this “Mr X” situation with Mabale. I have no doubt that this “Mr X” exists. Mabale had a very painful neck on Friday, with the pain radiating down into the medial aspect of her right scapula (shoulder blade). This is an obvious sex injury. I think we need to come to terms that we are never going to find out the mystery-man’s real name, and I really doubt that we will ever meet him. I don’t think this will ever be discussed much further, and it will always be “Mr X”. Maybe this is a healthy scenario. Mabale is still very young, we don’t know where this relationship is going, and there shouldn’t be any interference from the morning team. Relationships are difficult enough, and morning discussions and anecdotes could cause complications. With Gareth and Leigh-Ann, being the most vocal in the mornings, and with the worst history with relationships, this elephant should be left alone, like a well-disciplined tourist in the Kruger National Park.
The team went to a pre-screening of “Anchorman 2” today. Of course Sias didn’t arrive, after he did RSVP to say he’ll attend. This caused all kinds of chaos with the catering. Unfortunately, I couldn’t step in and eat Sias’ portion, because I’ve got a bit of a digestion problem today. I tried to get Barry Ronge to help out, but he seems to have lost his appetite a bit, and only had one plate. Sadly, legends do slow down eventually, as time marches on. Oh, the film itself, it’s worth seeing. This sequel takes “ridiculously stupid” to another level, but there are some really funny parts that more than make up for it. “Truth is stranger than fiction” is a classic cliché. But it really happens. “Anchorman 2” takes a far-fetched scenario, turning a news programme into a show that gives the viewer what they really want, not what they need. Set in the late 70’s, to early 80’s, this spoof alludes to where news providers today, have actually gone to. Don’t we just love watching a live car-chase (OJ Simpson), and cute animals (Knut the baby polar bear), to real news, like who is behind the e-Tolls?
