Hi all. Welcome to my blog
My name is Paul. I am 36 and I live in Johannesburg. I’ve lived here my whole life, except for a seven-year stint in Cape Town where I studied. I am engaged to be married, and I am butler / footman / valet to an ungrateful cat.
I have ADHD, which I should be treating with regular exercise and a balanced diet, but which I usually medicate with chocolate, sugar, coffee and irregular hours. I am vegetarian (ovo-lacto) but I’m usually not too precious about it.
I will be blogging about the following things: South African politics, the South African economy, popular media that I’m consuming, life in Johannesburg, sport (mostly cricket and soccer), art, the odd recipe, and anything else that pops into my head. Thanks to the ADHD, a lot of things tend to pop into my head.
This week is going to be all about by-election analysis in South Africa. If you are a politics junkie you should enjoy the coverage that Wayne Sussman and I will be dishing out. If you are not a politics junkie, stick around anyway for my random thoughts and musings.
