  38. I so badly want to celebrate Halloween, but it seems my friends aren’t too keen. I’m feeling all alone, afraid on the Eve of Hallows sitting at home with my own spooky shadows.

    My party mask lies in gloom, my solitary life, foreshadowing my doom. But lo and behold this Shimmy Competition, could surely become my new party mission?

    My enchanting mask fastened, dress and heels on, I lie in wait, hoping Shimmy Club will catch my bait…

  39. Imagine the scene: It’s a sunny/windy/rainy (who knows anymore) Monday afternoon, a young UCT student has just written an exam that went very badly because she decided to be intellectual and take a course named “the philosophy of art and literature” and couldn’t drop out when she realised it was a load of bullcripes because she had already boasted to her friends about how very intellectual she was.

    Her feet drag along the floor on the way to the bus as she realises that she has messed up her chances of getting on the Deans Merit List and her mother will throw her out, her boyfriend will break up with her and her friends will shun her.

    She opens up her phone to look if there is a single soul in the world who still loves her and, to her amazement, finds an email/text message/whatsapp/instagram tag/facebook message/tweet from you wonderful people saying that she had won tickets to this amazing event!

    Her boyfriend begs her to take him back, her friends realise she’s actually pretty fantastic, her mother sees that if she’s the kind of daughter who could win stuff then she must definitely still live at home (just in case she wins a kitchen makeover). And things are right in the universe.

    So, I want to win because Monday is really going to suck if I don’t 🙂

  40. I so want this prize as I missed my 40th Birthday, very disappointed as I was planning a MURDER MYSTERY DINNER for 50 guests. Finances did not work out according to plan, due to last minute strikes by the post office and moneys not being paid. I planned on having this DINNER on my birthday 13 September last month and as you are able to see I received my quote in July 2014. (Please see attachment below) Very disappointed that it never materialized. Was so heartbroken, I ended up not doing anything at all. Kids needed funds for school tour, + cricket tour, + school holidays and they wanted to go away with friends. The little money saved for my birthday was used on the kids. I would be the HAPPIEST LADY ON EARTH if I could still do a MURDER MYSTERY DINNER even if it is not with all my friends, but to experience such a mysterious, fun filled, adventures Dinner with my partner . . . . . THE 40th BIRTHDAY PRESENT I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING FOR!!!! “Please if there are any Guardian Angles out there, hear my prayer. I never ask for things like this, BUT really. . . WINNING THIS – 2x VIP tickets to the Murder Mystery dinner at the Shimmy Beach Club, for myself and my partner is – “A 40th BIRTHDAY WISH COME TRUE!”

    (proof of quote below)


    “Greed, envy, sloth, wrath, lust, gluttony & pride are each sufficient motive for the human predator to dive into the depths of depravity. To cure a victim of their life, centres the motive on the perpetrator. However mysterious or confusing the motive or modus operandi, it’s up to you to bring justice to this evil lot.”
