Hot chick of the day

You know i was itching to say hot slut of the day - i'm reading way too many blogs! But my powers of self control although increasing diminished are still quite effective. For your tired eyes, i present the hot chick of the day - actually two hot chicks - my cousin Mbabazi, and her daughter Sonia aka Soni. It was taken months ago, Soni is now a year and two weeks old. Her birthday party was last week.

I didn't attend because it had rained heavily. Okay, that's the reason i gave. The real reason - because it had stopped raining by the time i would have had to go - is that meeting the same self-involved, insipid people that i met at the last party, and the one before was not sufficient reason for me to drag myself out of bed, and struggle through a two matatu long journey. So i stayed warm and read a play called Majangwa - A promise of Rain. It's a brilliant play by a little known Ugandan playwright called Robert Kalundi Serumaga(RIP). It is the most interesting play i've ever read. No scratch that, it gives the impression that i have enjoyed some of the plays i've read - i haven't. It's absolutely fantastic! I happen to have come across through the good fortune of being friends with the Playwright's equally gifted son Kalundi Robert Serumaga, whom - in the interest of advancing and preserving the arts and to satisfy my own curiosity about a man who has in my mind taken on legendary proportions - i agreed to help type the script.
You're not likely to find anything on google about this playright - There's more to the tragedy of Africa than famine, disease, poverty, famine, disease, poverty. Hopefully, in time that will change. If you're interested in reading the play, let me know; and i'll see about obtaining permission to email it.
Have a good weekend.
