Eurica, what made you name your car Geoff?
Would've expected Stoffels Poggenpoel or Piet van Tonder of so iets!

Remember the electric silver car thing that that they had on Top Gear with ice cream truck batteries at first and then the diesel generator? It was called Geoff. I liked the name and it confuses the Afrikaans Freestate people. The converstation usually goes like this (in Afrikaans though)
"What is that name on your car?"
"Geoff"
"No. That is not how you spell Jeff."

One lady actually asked me if it was a different way of saying F-off

Seeing as how we go with more than one thread at a time am I the only one here who wasn't aware that MC Nic had got a promotion?

Congratulations MC Nic. Don't forget us here when freebies are being handed out. And what about our drinks celebrating this promotion of yours? Or did I miss out on those as well?
