Eeeerm, sunset in Durban at the moment is around 7pm, maybe a little later, as in a few minutes later. Water temperature is in the higher 20's, like 25-27. Why's it still light, & why's he wearing a suit, it's practically the height of summer in Durban. Either twiggy's got the dates n times wrong, or... Somtin' ain right 'bout dis pitcher maan, 'im lookin a likkle bit cole an aal!!

soutie takes this one by occupying the moral high ground as usual and teaching us all a valuable lesson in web etiquette. ie. act like a kant and people will treat you like a kant.

soutie's avatar

soutie Feb 16, 2009 Rating: 4

I recall from my classical education and looking on wikipedia 2 minutes ago that Immanuel Kant (IPA: [ɪmanuəl kant]; 22 April 1724 – 12 February 1804) was an 18th-century German philosopher from the Prussian city of Königsberg (now Kaliningrad, Russia). He is regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of modern Europe and of the late Enlightenment. His most important work is the Critique of Pure Reason, an investigation into the limitations and security of reason itself. Therefore yuour comment is trueish within the limitations of reason itselfish, i think.

did you hear the one about soutie going to heaven? he didnt die, he just wanted to check out that it was up to his high standards. so st. peter was showing him round a huge marble hall filled with clocks. every so often each of the clocks would tick an extra minute here and an extra ten minutes there.... intrigued, soutie asks st.peter what all the clocks were for. st.peter explains that each person alive has a clock in heaven and everytime someone on earth acts like a complete w+nker their clock ticks on an extra minute. soutie asks where is his clock. st.peter answers that they are having a bit of a heatwave in heaven and they've bin using it in his office.... as a fan.

Hard though it may to be credit right now, in a few more weeks you'll be craving colour. How fortuitous, then, that designers had the foresight not to dedicate themselves entirely to black and white (though there is plenty of both around). From cerulean blue to daffodil yellow and pea green, there are a lot of morale-raising shades out there (and they really do lift the spirits). Perhaps the most universally skin enhancing shades are the pinks, fuchsias and corals that looked so fabulous on, inter alia, Richard Nicoll's catwalk.

soutie's avatar

soutie Feb 11, 2009 Rating: -3

The two main styles this spring are the boyfriend blazer and the cropped, Chanel-esque boxy jacket. Both have their advantages: the blazer skims the thighs and provides excellent cover; the cropped jacket leaves you more exposed, but accentuates your waist.
