South Africa v Pakistan, 3rd ODI, Johannesburg, 17 March, 2013

You can say of each of them in action that he is bound to bowl a devastating ball soon. The question is, though: Devastating to which team?
LLL:

Good thinking, and it would be a small but good commemoration.

You can find mynah's posts (in reverse-chronological order) from this page via the list of FB members.
In some cases you will have to click on the link to find the context, though.

Her very last post, although on a trivial topic, was typically droll.

Her best work was on C4, I think, with a couple of 'most embarrassing moments' posts typically self-effacing and quite hilarious.

Hilda or Debbie might have saved something; they were in contact with her the most I think.

RIP.

very sad news - I enjoyed her stories of travel and human frailties and embarrassments played down

Strange, the account is still open to me.

Don't think Hilda has been much in contact with her lately. She is bit a shocked.

Imagine buying The Pox or Rabies for your kid ... wouldn't go for The Clap, it looks kind of sinister. Typhoid is cool, though, and I love Flesh-eating's hands ... ;-)


Gentle, observant, curious.

I'm sorry man, but I had to laugh. That translation is funny in parts.

I could possibly clean it up a bit if some bits aren't clear.

She would have.

" A male colleague (yes, I'm old and wise enough to have his name withheld) had a habit of our women kept to the shoulder pinch.  Then we go on about women's rights, eerskending and stuff and he got the response he wanted"

That sent me into orbit. Cheers for the bits I can glean - it's nice to know a bit about her.

I see her name's been published here now.

Here's another bit from private correspondence:

>>>

It wasn't as painful as I expected, though no-one had warned me about the needles in the stomach and chest... What really got me was when they left me to lie motionless for half an hour, like a freezing porcupine with lots of bare flesh and bristles, and with the In-flight magazine of Air Seychelles to read without my glasses. I spent ages thinking I was going blind until I discovered the article was in French. The massage afterwards was quite nice - it saved me from frostbite, at any rate. Then Rita sat me down and said I should avoid mushrooms. (I was surprised, taken aback, and a little shocked...) And peanuts. (No great loss, but I sensed there was more to come.) And dairy (God, how will I get through my day without many cups of tea?). And vinegar, and seafood, and red meat. She didn't mention wine, so I'm having a glass...
