My heart and Rihanna

Last night, all the major news networks in the States were chatting about George W. Bush who just underwent heart surgery and had a stent placed in an artery as a result of heart disease. He's an incredibly fit and active man, so it once again highlights that regardless of whether you're healthy or not, young or old, if it happened to him and it happened to me... it could happen to you.

Last Friday, Doctors Orders on SABC3 featured my story in their programme:


So it really is all about popping off to your doctor once a year for a checkup. Bush was lucky in that they picked it up before he had a heart attack. I was not so lucky, and as a result I have heart damage.

Onto lighter news. Did she lip sync at her concert on Sunday night?  I didn't go (i'd rather shoot myself in the foot), but according to a lot of people on twitter, Rihanna didn't sing much. Whereas some people aren't phased by that, I would be incredibly pissed off if I paid for a ticket and she wasn't really singing. I know there's hectic dance routines and she might get out of breath, but that's all part of performing live.

Based on this photo taken in Cape Town yesterday, even the penguin has read what some people were saying on twitter.
