My current favourite things

in life:

1. Every morning Pretty brings me a mocco java that she makes herself. It consists of all those fat free things like sugar, coffee, milk, creamer & hot chocolate. Oh my O-face, it is to die for!

2. As excited as I am to get my newly built office, I absolutely adore my current one. It is far away from everyone else except the IT department, its LARGE, it has aircon and is right near the toilets but far away from the kitchen. I like this.

3. Every morning on the way to work I listen to my song from Snow Patrol. Its emo, but it grounds me and reminds me that I have been in far worse headspaces than I am these days, and that makes me smile. I then listen to Gareth Cliff bitch on 5fm. God I adore that mans arrogance.

4. There is a smell of ‘Home’ when I enter The Shath. It hits me every time, its a mixture of baby powder, stay soft and dettol. It reminds me of Cath & Cam.

5. Yoga. I just love it. I can’t remember the last time I found something I enjoyed doing as much. Even though it sometimes gets us all sweaty and hot, I still walk away feeling like I’ve been drifting on a sail boat.

6. Toast with butter. Nothing else. It is my current favourite meal. Sometimes a bit of scrambled egg. I pick this over a steak even.

Just to piss off Gluggie, I’m ending off on an uneven number:

7. My orange nail polish. Its bright, cheap looking and doesn’t go with any of my clothes, but fuck it I’m in love.

So, if this Hadron Collider thingie does, in fact, end the world today at 09.30am these are the things I will miss the most aside from my family and friends.

Happy hump day everyone, lets hope we get out of it alive!

Rebellion is a good colour…

they try mute you and you just get louder
they accuse you endlessly yet you are unafraid and daring
they gossip, lie, assume & judge
yet you stand taller than them all, despite being the smallest i know

i know they think they mean well
but do you think they know how it makes you feel
i stand as a witness to their unfound words
and am beside you, behind you and in front if you ever need

rebellion is a good colour on you
don’t ever replace it
rebellion is a good colour on you
don’t ever fake it
rebellion is a good colour on you
i know you can make it

give up trying to understand this post, its only meant for person and if you don’t know who it is then its obviously not you.

Picnicing under the stars. LMAO

Living in at The Shath and in its neighbourhood has provided endless entertainment for Cath, Cam and myself.

Just tonight we have had the local police roaming the streets two metres at a time announcing a community policing forum.  Repeatedly. Again and again. Every two metres:

*police siren woooo eeeep wooo* and then over the speakers;
“Vhis are a reminder, tomorrow even-eeng at va corn-err off X and Y Straat that there are being a community policing forum for the community en va Police”.

REPEAT.  SIREN, ANNOUNCEMENT, DRIVE TWO METRES, REPEAT SIREN, ANNOUNCEMENT, DRIVE TWO METRES.  This being at 7.30pm, when normal families are putting kids to bed and normal bloggers are sitting down to watch Joey on SABC 3.

After giving up on putting Cam to bed while the copper does his announcements, Cath goes outside to smoke and spots a homeless couple in the road right outside our apartment block and comes to call me.  We have a habit of spying on everyone in our neighbourhood from either of our balconies.  By the time I got there, they were rolling out the blankets and setting up for a picnic under the stars, right in our garden!

Our first reaction was to call the Police, but then the police car strolled right on past and didn’t care.  Eventually the local station picked up the phone and by the time Cath got the message through that we needed vagrants to be removed, the hobos had heard everything (we were directly above them on our balcony) and removed themselves.  The following conversation takes place:

Cath: Ok, sorry, don’t send a car.  The homeless people have gone.
Cop: eh?
Cath: The people you had to chase away have left. You don’t have to come through.
Cop: No, it is fine – we are on our way, okay? Plus minus forty meeneets.
Cath: No, seriously, don’t send a cop car – they have removed themselves from our property.
Cops: Yebo, we weel remoof them, don’t worrr.
Cath: NO! YOU’RE NOT LISTENING! I DON’T WANT ANY POLICE TO COME HERE NOW!
Cops: Because why you phoning then?
Cath: Sigh (tears in eyes) Please. Please just cancel the call out.
Cops: Oh. Ehwe.  You have no need now?
Cath: No, no need, the homeless people are not here anymore.  Please. Cancel the call out.
Cops: Ok, thank you goodbye.

Half an hour later the homeless couple came back. They are currently sleeping under their blankets and are folded into a ball on the grass.  We didn’t have the strength to call the police again.

If they come back tomorrow, I’ll ask them to leave myself.
