I was at the station, waiting for a train to take me back to the airport after a conference.
That explains everything.
George and I were at the airport, waiting in the departure lounge with a whole lot of other travellers.
We were so excited to see Ellen.
But it seems like we were the only excited ones. Ellen was dressed in a weird rubber glove hat (a la the penguin in Wallace and Gromit) and a furry green suit. She was excited to be in South Africa and to meet South Africans.
But was very disappointed and sad to not get the reception she was expecting. (Other than from George and me.) Sorry, Ellen. 😦
