The vast Justin Bieber entourage, arriving in Cape Town for a multi-billion profit tour, received a big scare when they learned that the Sailing to Purgatory blogger team was due to appear at a nearby Friends of the Library gathering that very night, it's rumoured.
If, like me, you're wondering what a Justin Bieber is, I'll pass on the advice given to me. Think of body tattoos on top of last week's body tattoos, charity shop beach shorts, and a conceit rather longer that an extending microphone strapped to the side of a head.
Oh, a singer?
A popular vocalist?
The star that's brighter than Venus.
You'll find Venus is a planet.
When the entourage for non-capitalistic, non-rip off Sailing to Purgatory arrived in historic False Bay to speak to Friends of Fish Hoek Library, we could see why the Just In Griever was suffering considerable grief.
If the adventure book's visit drew such a crowd, how was the Heaver crowd going to fill the former FIFA world cup stadium's 550 seats at a mere hundred pounds or so a ticket?
Good people that they are, a few kind souls considered helping the vocalist by diverting to the stadium, but a recitation by Wendy changed their minds.
Our visit to Fish Hoek was excellently arranged by Jenny Strickland. Lots of questions were asked, and interest shown, with many determined to get Sailing to Purgatory as soon as deliveries reach South Africa.
It's not at all clear if Mr Fever was treated to applause to match the book review's audience. The reaction of the police and traffic authorities was clearer.
Fish Hoek authorities reported little trouble with rampant gals and rampaging cars. 'We'd welcome more of the Sailing to Purgatorial appearances,' Officer Smidt said from the False Bay police HQ. 'You'd not be hearin' that declared by our broers in Kaapstad.'
Many thanks to Jenny Strickland and those great people of Fish Hoek for a really memorable evening.
And abundant thank yous for visiting the SailingToPurgatory.com blog
