Groot en oranje…

December 20th, 2007 · Posted by Hugo · 5 Comments

Daar sit die walglike ding. Groot en oranje. Alles rondom hom vervaag. Ek staar na hom, en hy staar na my. Groot en oranje.
My hand beweeg versigtig nader. Ek het geen keuse nie. Stadig en huiwerig.
Ek raak aan hom. My hand maak toe oor hom.
Ek neem die mes in my ander hand en slag hom. Die twee helftes val uit mekaar.
Vesels! Dis sag en vlesig, vet geswel met sap. Rillings trek deur my. Hoendervleis bedek my. Naarheid spoel oor my.
Groot en oranje.

    Raai raai:

    A favourite show.

    Wow, Pieter! That is brilliant. Sickeningly brilliant. I wonder what it would look like if you didn’t tell me what the series was about. I just checked the Wikipedia page, sounds brilliant!

    Oh, and the guy’s looks somehow reminded me of one of the “praise&worship” guys at Stellenbosch Gemeente. Hehe. No offence meant, I like the guy’s looks. 😉

    OK, I’ve now watched it two and a half times. (The first time I kept on rewinding sections.) You were right, I could watch it a third time now. I suppose if I watch it six times back-to-back, I might become bored with it, but once a week or once a day, I can see that it might never get old.

    In other news: my laptop died. My laptop and my week-old Hi-Speed USB hub. I wonder if the hub might not have done something terrible and killed my laptop in the process. Ugh. Now what? Just before Christmas? Businesses are closed until next year… I hope/believe/havefaith that the hard-drive is still fine. Backups not completely up-to-date, but the important stuff is committed to a safe(ish) svn repository. The worst stuff in such incidents would be the schlepp and the $$$… Bleh. And the loss of trust in USB hubs.
