Power Sense of Humour Failure

I've been scarce. It's all this Load Shedding business's fault... the electricity is on, then off, then on, then off... You can't get anything done because everything's interrupted. And so randomly too. Not, say, for an hour a day, at a specific time, so that we can plan for it. One minute you're working, the next the electricity's off. And you don't know when it's going to come back on. They say this is the way it will be from now on in South Africa. So, we're looking into buying some generators for the business. As for home, we'll have to invest in a few paraffin lamps.
And this, in the 21st Century, folks.
Welcome to Africa. Don't ask me what's going to happen with the 2010 Soccer World Cup. I'm already embarrassed for South Africa. Eish!
