Finishing the PhD and getting back to blogging about (some other?) nonsense

It has been a hectic few weeks! At the moment I have about five or six rough blog drafts just lying there in my virtual and physical folders at home, waiting for me to give them some attention. I, on the other hand, am lying in a bed in my parents’ house trying to get away from all my responsibilities for a day or two!

But, I think I deserve some rest just as much as those drafts deserve to be completed. The last few months were spent on: research, writing and finishing the PhD (now I’m awaiting the verdict and praying the examiners will have mercy on me!), applying for jobs, going for interviews, teaching, marking etc. etc. whilst trying to retain a little bit of the sanity I had left after the first thesis. I think the following comic from one my favourite online comic strips: PhD  Comics by Jorge Cham, best describes my last couple of weeks…

Redrafting ad infinitum

A little while ago I proudly announced on Facebook that my thesis was finished. This was after I had typed the last word of my last chapter and triumphantly ticked “write chapter 8” off my to-do list . I expected some reworking, but never imagined there would be so many changes and improvements right at the end. This comic came at just the right time to ensure me I wasn’t the only one suffering the curse of the multiple “final” drafts! I am pretty confident about the *real* final draft I handed in, so I have to admit it was worth it!

So now that the thesis is out of my hands for the moment, some posts to look forward to (I’m talking to myself here :P), are stories about and pictures of our trip to Mozambique in June/July, a list of my favourite movies in 2012, a review of another one of my favourite beauty products, maybe something about my new iPad ❤ (a post on this during the Apple vs Samsung a.k.a. the battle over the rounded rectangles or something like that, would have been quite cool, however the battle is long from over, so I will get my chance) and of course the piece about Cruywagen’s autobiography (which I still need to buy, and read!). With our Canadian friend visiting South Africa*, I’m being introduced to some American/Canadian traditions such as Thanksgiving, which is probably also worth blogging about. Halloween is coming up soon and should be quite interesting. Let’s hope I don’t get so hopped up on “candy” that I try trick or treating. I don’t think the neighbours will be too pleased with me.

Next year there will probably me a few blogs on building a house. Our plans have been approved by the estate and we are now waiting for them to be approved by the municipality and then the building trials and tribulations can start! After the dreaded PhD oral I would hopefully be able to write a blog post on how to ace your thesis oral. 🙂

It’s almost half past 2 in the morning now and my creative juices will properly start to dry up pretty soon.  So, I think it’s time to let the sandman in – poor thing has been waiting outside my window for about three hours now! Good night. 😉

Met oor die 7000+ nuusbulletins op sy kerfstok, laat Riaan hom nie onderCruy nie

Die ouer garde onthou hom as Haas Das se stem op Haas Das se Nuuskas in die sewentigerjare. Sedertdien het Riaan Cruywagen ’n kulturele fenomeen, so sinoniem met Suid-Afrika soos Madiba, Mrs Balls-blatjang en Ouma-beskuit geword. Cruywagen is tans die SABC se langs-dienende nuusleser en ten spyte van sprake daarvan dat sy kontrak (vir welke rede ook al) in 2003 nie weer hernu sou word nie, sien ons hom steeds hier in 2012 elke aand op die kassie. G’n wonder daar is mense wat hom as die Chuck Norris van Suid-Afrika beskou nie! Boonop het hierdie man sedert sy eerste verskyning op televisie op 26 November 1975 nog nie oor een woord gestruikel nie en skaars ’n plooi op sy gesig bygekry. Hy is natuurlik die bekendste vir sy haarstyl, wat hy in ’n onlangse video as sy “original comb-over gangster hairstyle” beskryf wat deur die jare nog nie verander het nie en nooit eers ’n bietjie deurmekaar is nie. Hy het al in sy loopbaan as nuusleser oor die 7000 nuusuitsendings gedoen en ’n hele paar toekennings daarvoor ontvang, wat hom verdere supersterstatus verleen.

Ons sien Cruywagen ook buite die nuusuur in Suid-Afrikaanse films waar hy homself as nuusleser vertolk. Hy, wat bekend is vir sy besadigde persoonlikheid, verskyn ook in ’n hele paar tong-in-die-kies-advertensies vir onder andere die Loerie-toekennings, waar hy met sy pak klere in ’n jacuzzi tussen ’n klomp skrapsgekleede meisies sit en skemerkeltjies drink. In hierdie advertensie spreek hy hom teen slegte reklame uit en adverteer die 33ste jaarlikse Loerie-toekenningsgeleentheid, waarvan hy ook die aanbieder was.

Dié legende se biografie, Wat’s Nuus (Naledi Publishing) het onlangs verskyn en so paar dae terug het hy ’n reeks video’s Awesomeness for dummies op YouTube begin. Hierdie video’s is ’n parodie op die “legendary” Barney Stinson van How I met your Mother-faam en sy “awesomeness”-mantra. In hierdie video’s verwys Cruywagen na homself as Cruy-Cruy en hy gee lesse oor onder andere popkultuur, die “interwebs” en verhoudings – alles met die oog op hoe om meer “awesome” te wees. Hy meng formele taal met “gangster”-taal en slengwoorde soos “seriaaas”, “homeboy”, “kief”en “vleispaleis” en sorg so vir vermaak wat jou inderdaad, soos hy ook sê, sal laat LOL.

Wat’s Nuus is reeds in boekwinkels beskikbaar (R117,95 op Kalahari.com) en verskyn ook binnekort op mý boekrak. Ek is nou eers op pad Mosambiek toe, maar daarna sal ek ’n bietjie terugvoer oor Cruy-Cruy se biografie gee.

Kyk solank na so ’n paar video’s van hom:

Riaan Cruywagen berig in 1990 dat die Bevolkingsregistrasiewet, ook bekend as die “laaste hoeksteen van apartheid”, van die Suid-Afrikaanse Wetboek geskrap is:

Hier is Cruywagen in die jacuzzi om die 33ste jaarlikse Loerie-toekenningsgeleentheid te adverteer:

“The optimist says the glass is half full.
The pessimist says the glass is half empty.
The realist says the glass contains half the required amount of liquid for it to overflow.
And the cynic… wonders who drank the other half.”  (Quoted from http://www.businessballs.com)

Whether you’re an optimist, a pessimist, a realist or a cynic, there is something in these video clips that will make you laugh, and you will probably recognize yourself in one of these characters…

Take some time to watch these – it made me laugh so much after a quite exhausting day! All of this is so true… it actually makes you want to cry, or scream, or hit something. But that won’t help… so let’s laugh about it instead! 😀

’n Humoristiese greep uit my dag

Rudi sit op die bed en buig iets aan sy laptopsak.
Rudi (aan CM): “Het jy ’n tang?”
CM: O_o “Ja, ek hou mos ’n tang in die slaapkamer aan.”
CM wonder nou hoe om hierdie episodetjie te interpreteer. Rudi werk verder…
[Na so ’n rukkie van stilte]
Rudi: “Wil jy gou vir my ’n tang gaan kry?”
CM: “Nee.” O_o
Rudi: “Hoekom nie?”
CM: O_o “Wasgoedopvoutyd. Sal jy vir my die wasgoed opvou as ek vir jou ‘n tang gaan haal?”
Rudi skud sy kop heftig heen en weer.

Dis hoe gender-rolle in die Spies Gaum-huishouding werk (of hoe Rudi hulle probeer maak werk!). 😀

(NS: Ek dink soms Rudi sou ’n goeie 1930s [of iets] hubby gemaak het. Gelukkig maak hy nou net ’n goeie hubby. 😉 )

So ’n paar uur later… Die wasgoed is mooi netjies opgevou en in die kas gepak. Die ding aan die laptopsak is steeds gebuig…

I absolutely LOVE Louis Vuitton’s Spring Summer 2012 ad campaign. The ads create a beautiful atmosphere of ladies hanging out at an ice cream parlour – chatting, eating and most probably gossiping a little ;). The clothes, shoes, bags and accessories are absolutely stunning and express femininity, elegance and confidence.

Die liefde het behoorlik geBlom! – Mari en Benja trou op 17 Maart 2012 in Wolseley

Benja en Mari op hulle troudag

So ’n paar maande gelede ontvang ons ’n “huweliksbevestigingspaspoort” in die pos – ’n uitnodiging om Mari Esterhuizen en Benja Blom se troudag by te woon. (Die uitnodiging het soos ’n paspoort gelyk met foto’s van die aanstaande paartjie en “stempels” wat die huweliksbevestigingdatum aandui – een van die oorspronklikste uitnodigings wat ek nog gesien het!) En so is ons op 17 Maart 2012 Wolseley toe om die Bloms se mooiste dag met hulle by Waverley Hills te deel. Dit was voorwaar ’n pragtige venue met ’n intieme kapelletjie, ’n mooi tuin en ’n pragtige uitsig oor die berg. Die onthaalsaal is versier met swart tafeldoeke,  bloedrooi rose en kerslanterns op elke tafel en buite is rooi, wit en swart oosterse lanterns op die stoep gehang om ’n feestelike atmosfeer te skep.

Die troupaartjie het (uiteraard) net so pragtig gelyk en ek dink nie ek het, veral Benja, een keer sien ophou glimlag nie! Hy het immers uiteindelik met, soos hy na haar verwys het toe hulle begin uitgaan het, “my [– dis nou sy –] Mari” getrou!

Die twee is mooi aangevul deur die twee strooimeisies, Mari se skoonsus Janita en haar beste vriendin Adri, albei in rooi getooi, en Benja se twee jarelange koshuisvriende, Robbie en Henco, wat te oulik gelyk het in hulle kruisbande en fedora-hoedjies.

Die troutafel

Ek weet nie of daar werklik woorde is om te beskryf hoe gelukkig die troupaartjie gelyk het nie, maar hulle het absoluut gestraal! En om nou maar die ou cliché te gebruik (dit is mos aanvaarbaar in die konteks van troues!) – hierdie twee is absoluut vir mekaar gemáák en gemaak om soos ’n handskoen te pás. Die dominee het ook juis tydens sy preek gesê hoe hulle soos epoksiegom twee dele uitmaak van ’n baie sterk band wat as dit eers meng, nie gebreek kan word nie. En ek is ook oortuig daarvan dat hierdie band vir ewig gaan hou en Mari en Benja se liefde vir ewig gaan blom soos op hul mooiste dag in Maart.

Dankie julle twee dat ons getuienis van hierdie verbintenis kon wees en saam met julle, julle ander vriende en julle vrolike familie tot na middernag kon dans en kuier en julle liefde vir mekaar kon vier!

My Top 10 Beauty Buys (at the moment) #1 RVB Holistic Skin Care Range

March 15, 2012 at 11:55 pm | Posted in Beauty, My Top 10 Beauty Buys 2012 | 2 Comments

My thesis has been keeping me quite busy over the last couple of moths; therefore the long silence. I was in the mood for writing about something much less serious than translation theories and text analyses, so here are my 10 favourite beauty/cosmetic items at the moment. Since I am a bit of a shopaholic (especially clothes, shoes and cosmetics) and since I keep a stock pile of these items at home (read: I’m a hoarder O_o) it was quite difficult to narrow this list down to only 10 items. But here goes, in no particular order (oh how I miss watching Miss SA… pity they moved it to that obscure channel)…

#1 RVB Holistic Skin Care Range

A year ago I was introduced to the RVB Holistic range by my beauty/nail therapist (Chantelle Visser from The Sanctuary in Stellenbosch) and RVB area manager Rene van der Merwe. I went for a skin analysis where they magnify your skin times 50 to see what the real condition of your skin is. It was interesting to learn that I don’t have a sensitive skin, although I had believed so all my life. A sensitive skin will show red capillaries under magnification. Mine only showed dehydration lines – probably from hardly ever moisturising (oh dear…). I have quite an oily skin, which made me stay away from anything that could worsen it. I was recommended the RBV BioEssential and RVB BioHydra series, which is a light, yet hydrating formulae that helps restore the moisture in your skin. When your skin is hydrated, it is less likely to become oily, because when your skin becomes dehydrated it actually produces oil to try to rectify the problem (same goes for your scalp).

Being a face wash and water kind of girl, getting used to a proper skincare regime – cleansing, toning, day cream, night cream, eye cream – was something to get used to. But it was worth it, as my skin has definitely improved and feels much softer and more hydrated, without becoming oily.

RVB Holistic is a comprehensive Italian skin care range which prides itself on being holistic and organic.  The products are holistic, because RVB takes an approach of Research, Value and Beauty as cornerstones of the development of their range and the products are organic because all ingredients listed are 100% natural and active ingredients (this means all the, in this case organic, ingredients are actively participating in achieving the purpose of the product – the products contain no additives e.g. to improve smell, texture, etc.). Their products also do not include any parabens, mineral oils, formaldehyde, petrochemicals or silicones and are GMO (genetically modified organisms) free. (These chemicals are often used in cosmetic products, but are controversial due to known or presumed negative effects on the skin and health in general.) Even their packaging is eco-friendly.

The RVB Holistic range includes the BioHydra range, for dehydrated skins, te BioCalm range, for sensitive skins, the BioEssential range (the basics such as cleansing milk and toner), BioPurity, for oily skins and the BioAge range for ageing skins. RVB also has an ORO range, a very luxurious range for ageing or aged skins, Be Man for men, Jeunes skin care range for young problem skins, Light Life, which purpose is specifically to restore the skin’s quality and youthfulness after being exposed to harsh and external elements and Simply White, which acts against hyperpigmentation. RVB also developed a make-up (Colour Therapy) and sun care range (Sun Cellular Defence). From the RVB skin care ranges there is a range for every type of skin. I am currently using the BioEssential and BioHydra ranges and they have indeed done wonders for my skin J.

The products are generally more expensive than the ones you can buy at the pharmacy and at some beauty counters (I for example pay 250 ZAR for 200 ml cleansing milk and 550 ZAR for 50 ml night cream). And especially if you are on a bit of a shoestring budget like me, you tend to rather opt for “drug store” skin care ranges. But, because of the quality of the products they last very long and work very well, ensuring you get value for your money. Since March last year I have only replaced my cleanser, toner and day cream once. Although they are almost finished, the night cream and eye and lip cream are still the same ones I purchased after the skin analysis. With “drug store” products your skin often becomes used to the products quickly and you constantly need to apply more of the product to maintain the same moisture level. Because some of the products do not really improve your skin, you tend to try different brands and throw out half-used bottles, because they simply don’t work for you. At least, this was my experience.

To choose a skin care range that works for you, I recommend trying out facials with different products at beauty salons and buying or asking for starter or sample packs to see what works best on your skin. What is however important, is to start with a proper skin care regime as soon as possible, because although soap and water might have worked for the beauties of yore, the harsh elements we are exposed to today, such as pollution, sun, stress, poor diets, etc. take their toll on our skins. And besides, it’s a great way to treat yourself a bit – and this goes for the men out there as well ;).

Beauty buy #2 will follow shortly…

Stille Nag

Ansie Saenger, 02/04/1932 - 25/06/2011

Die afgelope paar dae het ’n paar mense my gevra: “Hoe was jou Kersfees?”, “Het jy lekker Kersfees gehou?”. Lekker, ja, maar hierdie Kersfees was ‘n bietjie minder vrolik as my voriges. Tussen die lekker eet, die geskenke en familiekuier deur, was daar ’n groot verlang, ’n verlang na my liewe Ouma Ansie wie se teenwoordigheid ’n groter geskenk as al dié wat ek gekry het, sou wees. Vir my was hierdie Kersfees nie ’n jubelende fees van nuwe lewe, of die gawe van gee nie, maar eerder ’n stil fees van vreugdevolle herinneringe.

Ek onthou nog Ouma se gewerskaf in die huis van vroegmôre af, die skaapboud en vreugdekoek wat op die trein van Kimberley af saamgereis het, die trippies dorp toe in die ou getroue Volksie, die ou Ford wat elke Junie by die SAOU-strandhuisie aankom, die klerekopery wat die mans seker tot raserny gedryf het, die voosgeleesde resepteboeke, die stories, die “night walks”, die lag en gesels tot laat in die nag. Ouma se mooi stem, Ouma se mollige lyfie, Ouma se kuiltjies, Ouma se drukkies, Ouma se ingeboude blindekol vir al my foute en Ouma se onuitputbare bron van liefde en bederf.

Ek staan en kyk nou die dag na Ouma en Oupa se troufoto. Ouma nog nie eers 21 jaar oud nie, vol hoop, vol sprankel. ’n Leeftyd voor julle. Ek het altyd geweet die dag sal kom wat Ouma ons moet verlaat, maar nooit besef ééndag sal op die ou-end vandag word nie. Dr Seuss se bekende sê-ding lui: Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. Ek sit met trane in my oë en glimlag. Geseënde Kersfees, liewe Ouma. Rus sag.

My brief encounter with some pesky pantry pests (and how I got rid of them)

The Confused Flour Beetle

About a year ago I was sitting at this very computer trying to figure out what exactly the little brown bugs were that seemed to be taking over my kitchen. Nobody likes a pest problem – especially not this kind. I can still handle the spiders crawling around, the occasional crickets in the garage and the pigeons messing all over the window sills and patio, but these little bugs were of a different calibre. For some time I had noticed these little brown bugs crawling around the house, but dismissed them as a few lost insects that would be sorted out by my “pet” daddy long legs. I did not think much of it, and only decided to investigate after finding some in the couscous. Not exactly the way I want to get my daily dose of protein! These little bugs are called flour beetles as they feed on starchy foods, and grains, such as cereal and flour. They fall under the category pantry pests because as a home pest they live in your pantry or food cupboard. They also infest food products stored in silos, warehouses, etc. and usually come into your home from the grocery store and then shack up in anything from cereal, to pasta, flour and rice. Mine chose the box of Weet-Bix as their manor. (Flour beetles are quite common and it does not matter how clean your house is, anyone can fall victim to these irritating little creatures; just in case you were questioning my housekeeping skills ;)) The beetles will chew right through carton boxes, paper bags and in my experience even some plastics to get to their food sources. These little buggers are quite resilient as well. In a Mythbusters episode the presenters investigated the myth of cockroaches being able to survive a nuclear blast. Where cockroaches were able to survive radiation doses at 10 000 rads (10 times the lethal dose for humans), the flour beetles did much better (Conley [s.a.]). I researched how to get rid of these beetles and it seemed like the only real solution to get rid of them thoroughly, was to call in the exterminator or fumigate the house. As I was not really in the mood for that, I decided to do the following. These are steps you can follow if ever confronted with these beetles:

–          Unpack your entire food cupboard.

–          Throw away anything that is not stored in a tight-fitting, or sealed plastic or glass container. Cutting off their food source is key to getting rid of them.

–          Do not keep the garbage bag with all the food in the kitchen, or the house. Tie the bag as tightly as you can, put it outside and get rid of it a.s.a.p.

–          Kill all the beetles that are still crawling around in and around the cupboard by squishing them or drowning them in a detergent (hehe, it’s brutal, right?)

–          Clean the cupboard thoroughly. ( I used Handy Andy’s Actifizz multipurpose spray.)

–          Also spray the Handy Andy spray (the fizziness seemed to work very well against the beetles) and a little insect poison (I used one of Doom’s Odourless  poisons) along the base of the cupboard (if it’s on the floor) for a few days after the big clean-up to make sure any beetles that are possibly hiding under there, as well as the remaining eggs and larvae are killed. According to a Wikipedia article on the red flour beetle these bugs can live for more than three years (Wikipedia 2011). Also keep an eye out for them and kill them on sight!

–          In future, make sure you store food either in the refrigerator, or in tight-fitting, or sealed plastic or glass containers. This is especially necessary for starchy food and grains.

–          Keep the containers you use clean by washing them each time before refilling.

–          Unpack and repack your food cupboard on a fairly regular basis and make sure starchy and grainy foods are not stored for long periods of times.

These simple steps worked for me and there was no need to go to any drastic measures to get rid of my unwelcome visitors. Hopefully these do-it-yourself pest control tips can help someone else who find themselves facing the same problem. 🙂

A short review on a few quick visits to a tiny coffee shop

November 25, 2011 at 3:11 pm | Posted in Food & Wine | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , ,

Although the illy cafés are very small (well, those I have seen), they are impossible to miss thanks to their striking red and white interior and the lovely coffee aroma escaping from the coffee bar. Despite this it was only a few weeks ago that I tried them out for the first time. Their coffee definitely lives up to their good name and my cappuccino was accompanied by a small meringue that tastes absolutely divine when dipped into the lovely cappuccino foam. The first time I went there we only had coffee, but the next time we tried out their sandwiches (the smoked chicken and I the pastrami). If I remember correctly they are listed as paninis on the menu and served with crisps. The next time I went for a quick lunch after a long, debilitating visit to the Post Office to regain my strength for a writing consultation. I opted for the roasted vegetables quiche served with a rocket, feta and tomato salad. The waitress promised me it will last me till the evening, and it truly did! Everything was so yummy and deliciously fresh and their service was friendly and quick, which is a bonus when you’re in a hurry (I visited the one in Eikestad Mall, Stellenbosch). They also serve their coffee and meals to go – a much more preferred option to the fast food restaurants just around the corner! They are a little pricier, of course, but their food is worth that little extra. Despite the fact they were out of savoury muffins each time (I still want to try theirs and see if they compare to my favourite Mugg & Bean ones) I will definitely return to this little café for great cappuccinos and delicious food served with a smile.
