BIFF vs THE SOUTH AFRICAN

A fashion blogger that lives in Cape Town, South Africa recently stumbled across my blog.  Her blog was full of pretty clothes and funky accessories so I immediately followed back and wrote a comment about how much I loved her style!  After Google-ing Cape Town and discovering how absolutely gorgeous the city was I fell in love!! (I wish I had all the money in the world to just travel and appreciate earth’s beauty in person instead of through Google.  Sigh…)  I began following South Africans and South Africans began following me. (By “following” I don’t mean physically..I mean befriending on Twitter or subscribing through Google.) The next day, I woke up to my tracker results which recorded over sixty something hits from South Africa.  I couldn’t believe it!!  I was so excited over my modest following that I immediately texted Biff exclaiming “A South African is following me!!”. (I was referring to one twitter buddy in particular that complimented “my writing voice”.)  Within seconds I received a phone call from Biff asking “Where am I?” and “What does he look like?”  Very confused, I responded “Who?”  He yelled back at me “THE SOUTH AFRICAN?!”  hahahahaha Well, I did tell him that I had a South African following me…

1.       How would I know that a random person following me is South African?
2.       I’m very glad that he called to check up on me.  If the time ever comes that I do need rescuing, I now know who to call.
3.       From the look of my new twitter buddies from South Africa, I might not want saving.  They have all been VERY attractive.

That being said, I love my biff.  Years back he saved me from the humiliation of purchasing macaroni and cheese from the high school cafeteria and from sticking my hand in the Snapple machine.  Now he saves me from the psychotic LLS and the South African that wasn’t stalking me.  <3

  3. @Biff, what would I do with out you?? Actually, where were you an hour ago when the hot water hose decided to detach itself from the sink and flooded my entire kitchen? Sigh, I thought my hard boiled eggs over flowed for a sec! lol I didn't know what was happening!!

    @Elliot, Thanks for the follow and nice to meet you :) Apparently South Africa is full of talented bloggers! Glad you agree about it's vacation-ability, but the real question is: When are we going!? LOL

  4. I'd agree South Africa has some excellent writers. I have been amazed at the contacts around the world that I have connected with through blogging--I had no intention of that when I started.

    As for Biff, having someone looking out for you and your interests is never a bad thing and certainly offers some comic relief at times.
