Top 10 world's sexiest women unveiled

Top 10 world's sexiest women unveiled

Here is a text list, and my link will take you to my favourite, Keira Knightley.

1. Scarlett Johansson
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Jessica Alba
4. Jessica Simpson
5. Keira Knightley (my personal favourite)
6. Helle Berry
7. Jenny McCarthy
8. Maria Sharapova
9. Carmen Electra
10. Teri Hatcher

I think the photo's on this web page aren't the best, but they are decent.

Jenny McCarthy has a really bad photo, and Teri's age shows a bit in hers. Jessica Alba's photo's isn't great, but her beauty still shows through.

My list (from these) summarised would be:

1. Keira Knightley
2. Jessica Alba
3. Maria Sharapova / Carmen Electra (toss up)

Honourable mention to (in sequence)
Scarlett Johansson
Jessica Simpson

and the rest doesn't really cut it IMO. Or at least on these photos.

Radie Stadler

It is always a bit awkward when someone dies that you did not know well, but would have liked to. Radie Stadler, a truely amazing man, died yesterday (26/03/2006).

He was someone in whom I saw quite a lot of myself. In the office he was always full of jokes, and knew life is about more than money and career. I always stand around corners frightning people when they turn around etc. and Radie is the only one who ever did the same to me.

I easily related to his warmth and his kindhearted nature. He was truely someone who lived life as I believe it should, for fun and making others happy and feel good.

I did a google search on him, and it revealed nothing. Hopefully this blog will now be hit to show something of this great man.

I'm on Google Pages

Reenen se Laurielys prentjies en dinge

So, Google invited me (because I was on the waiting list) to use their Google Pages service. But since I already have the blog, I decided I'd rather dedicate that page to the LaurieLys. It's our family's mailing list, which, like all things on the web etc. dies out if it doesn't quite reach critical mass. I do believe though as more of the grandkids reach university, there will be more developments and post there. But for now the Laurielys isn't very active.

Hopefully my site will help it get off from it's knees again.

Human Rights Day

So we, South Africa, celebrated Human Rights Day yesterday.

Personally I relished the oppertunity to celebrate my rights. Especially my right to stay at home and play computer games and design a Magic Deck - I am thinking of splashing green though.

I heard on the radio earlier that some other (developed) countries doesn't have a human rights day. I believe it's our RIGHT to have a human rights day. :-)

I think however that for black south african's (and all others who were part of the "struggle") this means something else. To have gained back their human rights is actually truely something to be celebrated.

And therefore, without having done anything really constructive (in a non-magic sense) I actually believe that this day is something special and should be cherished.

Pep's Marketing Director Marcus Banga

"Marcus Banga" - Google Search

Our new Marketing Director started today at our company, Pep Stores

He is our second "non-white" Director, and like Estelle Morkel our HR Director, he seems truely competent and not just an EE or candidate.

I wonder if this post can be considered as a "Shameless Plug" (TM) I know a friend of mine was asked at their (internet) company to keep a blog. So this is a bit like a reference to that.

The Luckshack -> PTQ Prague

The Luckshack -> PTQ Prague

Well well well... More on Games, but specifically Magic: the Gathering. This is what sucks about it... it's all about luck. Opening that prize rare. So in protest, my next standard deck is going to be a peasant deck (I think that's what it's called, but a peasant deck might be with only commons - mine is going to be using uncommons as well).

9th ed is pretty cool still.

Games, Piracy and more

Well, here I am, first blog article.

It'll be on games, as games are an important part of my life.

Computer games these days is becoming cheaper and cheaper. Especially the older games. I recently bought quite a few games, and it's amazing how bad some games are.

A list of games I recently acquired are:
  1. Heroes of Might and Magic 4 (and 2 expansion packs)
  2. Rainbow 6 Raven Shield
  3. Thief II - The metal age
  4. Dungeon Keeper II
The interesting thing is, that I am truely irritated by the CD's with these games. I downloaded Daemon tools yesterday not to start pirating games, but to start playing my games. The CD's (or my CDw/DVD rom) is so bad that I cannot even play the movies on these games without them glicthing. I cannot believe that the game companies are printing the games on such low quality CD's.

Further more, I'll sell Heroes very soon. It sucks. I'll sell rainbow 6 too. I'll keep the others.

I saw Vampire: The Masquerades at a pawn shop the other day. Maybe they'll trade me that for Rainbow 6 and Heroes. But the reason I am frequenting these shops are more because I am searching for a copy of Morrowind GOTY. About 2 years back it was sold everywhere, but now it's gone. Can't find it anywhere.
