  5. that a single gay man in possession of a good blog must be in want of a shag. (
  6. that all palm-fringed beaches look alike. (Washington Post via
  7. that when searching Myspace for your high school classmates, you will not find anyone you loved or hated, only people you vaguely remember. (
  8. that the short story is a genre in want of an audience. (
  9. that one can never, EVER have too many sketchpads. (
  10. that in a society like Ghana, civil servants are more likely to be economical with the truth than be open in their dealings with those who take political decisions at the various ministries. (
