Last post of the previous page :

Antharias WroteColonMorning fistly, bloody awful hour. Secondly, I just cannot express it due to the place that I work. They tend to be the whole suit and tie group and even in the IT department (you would think I would get some freedom), still stuck with the collared shirt although they have given me leniency on that one to a degree. House-mate is a JW and therefore, have to be careful at home. Should all be sorted though by the end of this year if I can get what I want :D. So call me more of a closet goth than anything else but I am not overly fond of labels.


That's a really nice way of putting it - a closet goth. Most of the time I'm just too lazy to apply much effort in the mornings.
Your workplace sounds exciting, though. But I agree, sometimes it's better to blend in. Sadly, some idiots don't take goths seriously (or they call you emo instead). Unless you can come by their house at night with a baseball bat in hand. xD
Nawh, I'm just kidding.
South Africa, and Africa in general, is a really inapt place to express your true colours mainly due to the weather.

What is your view on models, though? I'm just curious. :p

Your chosen life and what you do in it does not bother me. I care merely for the fact of whether or not you can hold a conversation beyond that of what Paris Hilton was wearing last spring. Weather does not bother me too much. Regardless of what clothing, or lack thereof, you are going to suffer in this country and Africa in general. I look for nothing more in a person than intelligence. Well, that is not true but it depends on what form of relationship you wish to have with me. Why the curiosity? Sounds like you have a slight vendetta against them or am I mistaken?

I don't intend to blabber my personal life out to you. So don't you go fret yourself about that. I was merely stating what this country is to me, but I see you're uninterested so I apologies for that.
By the way, though. Who is Paris Hilton? lol

Don't mistake me for being shallow. Though, with a the personal things out of the way, I have not much to talk about.

And no, I have nothing against them. They, just like any other media figures, set the beauty standards of our subculture. Although, unlike this "Paris Hilton" character, they put it in a very subtle way. The curiosity, however, is linked to personal things, so I won't go into that.

As far as intellectual is concerned, I don't really mind. I strike up conversation with a lot of random, but clever people (entertaining in a sophisticated way) - if that can be accounted therefore. I am more inclined on personal matters and helping people to overcome their inner obstacles.

Yay!
It would have been so wonderful to actually meet you guys. But such is life.
I love winter and fall. They are my two favorite seasons. I'm so relieved that the summer is over! ^^

I'm not really sure where you are situated, but have you noticed it's been an odd summer? Hot and then cold; storming and then a heatwave a few days later?
I suppose it's because of global warming, but I'm glad some patches of grass are green. :D
