Powerful and devastating. I can imagine everything about it to be true and realistic, which is why it’s disturbing: a portrayal of how vulnerable a person can be to mental instability.

Thursday: Drinks with Greig at Toad in the Village. Great catching up with him. Reading.

Friday: Enjoying a side project reading WKT into a tree for parsing. After work drinks with colleagues. Watched an episode of a Vietnam war documentary.

Saturday: Brunch with mom at exclusive books, waterfront. Climbed Elsie’s Peak with Julia, Helga and Rose. Thai World takeout, reading.

Sunday: Grocery shopping, admin for mom, unsuccessful attempt at registering her for internet banking, the Absa registering procedure is poor, cooked a small lunch. Coffee and cake at Cafeen. Watched the German formula 1 race, a beer at Rascals, chores, reading.

My work week was divided into: 60% testing, 20% bug fixing, 20% side project
