My latest additions

Stood and waited while 2009 series was unpacked and then chose them. unrapped them with owner earl at my side who provided fantastic sound effects after every silver rapper was torn open.

What do you mean why?

Saw a boy that I went to junior school with the other night. He’s really clever- was on the chess team and a librarian. We chatted for a while and then he said “Ja, I’ve got this job interview tomorrow but ag, I don’t really want the job. I mean it pays REALLY well, something like R24 000 but I don’t really want it. I’m just gonna go and be like whatever.” I told him how arrogant he sounds. He laughed and asked why. He gave me a valentine once. I never gave him one back.

Tammy one. Arrogant genius zero.

i'm ready!

aint love grand!

I really don't do much all day but at the same time fill my time by making stuff. been making a lot of stuff from chalk boards to birdie mobile thingy mabobits. but this so far is my favourite. made custard cream cookies for three very important couples in my life. my mum and pops- was their 30 year wedding anniversary on monday. My dearest and oldest friend, lauren and kyle- celebrated their 1 year anniversary on saturday. and finally my bro and his girlfriend kris- cause they've stuck together through unsurmountable odds and deserve some damn cookies!

happy snapper.

Exhibiting some of my photographs here this thursday. I hope they dont write photographer next to my name- this makes me want to stand in a dark corner with a brown paper bag over my head...with two eye holes to see of course.

Nicholas Twickler.

Caught the train today for the first time in oh i dunno, 6 months. interesting people included a little old lady who told me that she would pay two pennies for a train ticket to wynberg and then use her third penny to buy sweets that she would eat while walking home. the most interesting person though was Nicholas Twickler.

Things you can tell about Nicholas Twickler just by looking at him:
He goes to SACS. His mom doesnt like him to lose his stuff- this is why "Nicholas Twickler" was written all over his tog bag. Is writing exams at the moment. Catches the Simons Town/ Fish Hoek Train. Wears Grasshopper school shoes. Probably plays rugby cause he's all stocky and stuff and has sausage rugby playing fingers. He also carries a pen in his top blazer pocket.

So Nicky boy got on at Newlands and then a pretty girl from Cedar House got on at Kenilworth. For Nicholas Twickler it was love at first sight. She sat down next to me and was the kind of girl who wears rings on every finger and ugg boots. long blonde hair and reading a book that contained words like bisexuality and cocaine. Nicky boy couldnt keep his eyes off of her. every third second of his train ride was filled with glances at her out of the corner of his eye. But then HE walked in and Nicholas's eyes no longer looked at ugg boot girl, but rather they looked at her "boy" friend up and down. Nicholas listened to her talk to the "boy" friend so intently though, watching her as she spoke from accross the train. shame it was sweet. then boy "friend" got off and Nick said to his friend (who was also from Sacs) "that guy looks familiar". And ugg girl opened her mouth, "He goes to Cedar house" responded Ugg boot girl. Nicholas's face now resembles a tomato and he just stares at her in shock unable to say anything. Instead he replies to his friend with a sentence filled with swear words about how tired he is from exams.

then i had to get off the train. aaaah nicholas twickler.

my favourite one of all.

I have favourites. never before. four so far, possibly five. i'm working on more, but then again these have only taken me 22 years to discover.

1.) My favourite movie. Elizabethtown. now, for all of you who think its a romcom, you are severly mistaken and have failed to listen to the words that are said in the movie.

"In that moment, I knew success, not greatness, was the only god the world served"

2.) My favourite cake. lemon drizzle. crapsack. must be moised.

3.) My favourite song. by REM strangely. not even really a big fan."at my most beautiful"

4.) thought tea was my favourite hot drink but I have unashamedly become obsessed with Cuppaccino. and i dont mean like go to Mugg 'n Bean and let them bring you one. I mean getting a take away one, putting the sugar in before you leave the shop, putting the lid back on and then taking the lid off later and licking the foam out of the lid.

5.) My favourite colour. grey. like a J M W Turner painting.

I have favourites. I like favourites.
