Travel, trouble, music, art,
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme-
I never said they feed my heart,
But still they pass my time

I am a Dorothy Parker fan. A very big one. There is something about her tragedy, and her own sardonic view of it, that endears the thought of her to me.

There is no such big tragedy in my life, which is a relief.

Even so, I wish that I could rhyme like her.

    I quite like this one:

    Oh, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
    She really gets me high (Bam-ba-Lam)
    You know that’s no lie (Bam-ba-Lam)
    She’s so rock steady (Bam-ba-Lam)
    And she’s always ready (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)

    Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
    She’s from Birmingham (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Way down in Alabam’ (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Well, she’s shakin’ that thing (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Boy, she makes me sing (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
    Whoa, Black Betty

    Enjoyed your blog, although I am not sure about the beetroot (beurk) with jelly (beurk) and sugar beurkkkkkkk!

    Hi there –

    I have a randome question for you – maybe you’ll be able to help! I’m an associate producer with a food and culture show that airs on the Travel Channel. We’ll be in Jo’burg this week doing a show with our host Andrew Zimmern. We’d like to feature street food in Soweto as well as food in Jo’burg.

    Do you happen to know any expert foodies in Jo’burg?!

    Our deadline is fast approaching, and usually bloggers tend to be well connected. I thought it was worth a try. I hope to hear from you soon!
