Ek is in ‘n “CUT & PASTE” mood – en ek het eintlik nie veel meer om te sê nie!!!!

Geniet die naweek!!!

(Hierdie een “freak” my uit – dis gevaarlik naby aan die waarheid…)

Believe it or not? How true is your number?

IF you were born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, 28th of any month you are number 1.
If you were born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th of any month then you are
number 2.
If you were born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, 30th of any month then you are
number 3.
If you were born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd, 31st of any month then you are
Number 4.
If you were born on the 5th, 14th, 23rd of any month then you are number 5.
If you were born on the 6th, 15th, 24th of any month then you are number 6.
If you were born on the 7th, 16th, 25th of any month then you are number 7.
If you were born on the 8th, 17th, 26th of any month then you are number 8.
If you were born on the 9th, 18th, 27th of any month then you are number 9.

Number 1
You are smart, a straight talker, funny, stubborn, hardworking, honest,
jealous on a competitive basis, kind hearted, temperamental, friendly, and
popular. You always want to be on the top and most likely to be
independent. You are most likely to fall in love at a young age, but will
marry once you mature! You are likely to have problems with people who
have opposite views and you are most likely to take revenge over your
enemies on a long time basis. You are a spender, but you will have a good
profession in the future. If you are guy you will be very popular. You can
go anywhere from the local shop to the heart of the parliament because you
are positive and talented in numerous areas. But in your life you will
always have some people who will work hard to bring you & your name down.
Because of your intelligence, some might hate you. You are a pioneer,
independent & original your best match is 4,6,8 while a good match would
be with 3,5,7

Number 2
No matter what, every one will love you because you are ruled by the Moon.
You day dream a lot, you have a very low-self esteem, you need to have a
back up for every move in your life, you are very unpredictable. You tend
to change according to time and circumstances, selfish, have a very strong
sense of musical and artistic talent and powerful verbal communication.
You can be sweet as an angel and can be ruthless when double-crossed. Some
might say you have a sixth sense. You will become a poet, writer, an
artist or a business person. You are not strong in love, so your
relationship will be in disarray until you settle down. If you are a girl,
you will be responsible for your family. If you are a man, you tend to get
involve in fights & arguments in the family. You will sacrifice your life
for your family. You are gentle, intuitive with a broad vision. You make a
well-balanced person. Your best match is 2, 5, and 9 no other people can
put up with you!!!

Number 3
You are hard hearted and selfish most of the time. You always tend to have
lots of problems within your family in the early stages but you will be
able to cope with everything. You seem to have your way in everything. And
from birth you would always have to work hard to achieve anything you
want. You always make a point to set examples on others, especially the
younger ones. Generally you are not a cool person. It’s not easy dealing
with you. A tough player you are! But once you are comfortable with
someone, it will be a lasting friendship. You always earn respect from
others. You seem to have lots of worries and problems but they won’t be
for long. You will have brilliant kids! You love money a bit too much so
temptation will push you to try endlessly. You will look after your family
and help friends, so you will spend a life time just being generous and
kind (except for men born on the 21st). You love your freedom, creative
and ambitious, a person who brings beauty, hope & ample joy to this
world!!! Your best match 6 and 9. Good match 1, 3, and 5.

Number 4
You are very stubborn, very hard working but unlucky in important matters
in life, very cool and helpful. You might repel people away from you, you
may cause nuisance to others if you are a man, as you gifted are with
understanding other people’s problems. If you are a girl, you excel in
your studies and arts. If you are a guy you spend most of your time with
girlfriends and you tend to have too much fun with your mates & girls.
Your friends will spend your time & money and get on with their life and
you will be left empty handed. So be careful! You love to spend. Your
positive side is that you are always around to help family and friends.
You always fall in love with those younger than you. You often live with
disappointments but you will take good care of your family. You need to be
careful of people who will take advantage of your kind heart. And beware
of your relationships too. You are radical, patient, persistent, and a hit
old-fashioned; you live with foundation &
order. Your best match 1, 8. Good match 5, 6, and 7

Number 5
You are very popular and you can get things done only by talking. Even to
your enemies! You are business-minded and like to do things spontaneously.
You will be famous if you get involved in any business. Your friends and
families will always ask for your help, and you are the one actually with
the money to help your friends. You will have more than one relationship,
but when you settle down you tend to be selfish. You tend to go for other
relationships – even if you are married at times because of your
popularity. You tend to get along easily with anyone because the numbers
is a middle number. You love freedom and changes. You learn your life
through your personal experiences. Your best match 1, 2, Good match 6, 8.

Number 6 (120% true!!!)
Ooopppss.. you were born to enjoy! You don’t care about others. I mean you
always wanted to have a lifetime of enjoyment. You will excel in either
education or business management! You are talented, kind (but with only
people who you think are nice), and popular. All good things come easily
to you. Your mind and body is just made perfect for love. You are loveable
by any number. But if you are a number 6 men, you will be involved in more
than a few relationships until you get married. If you are a girl, most of
you will get married/engaged early. You are a caring person towards your
family and friends. You are a person of compassion, comfort & fairness,
domestic responsibility, good judgment, and after all you can heal this
world wounds to make peace for everyone because you have the great power
and caring talent to take the world of love one step further.. Your best
match 1, 6, and 9. Good match 4, 5

Number 7
You are realistic, confident, happy, and talented in education, music,
art, singing, and most importantly in acting. You also have a bad temper!
You value your family status a lot; you will be in the top rank when you
reach a certain age. If you are a guy, you are popular with girls. Most of
the number 7s face lots of problems with their married life. Only a few
are happy. You have everything in your life but with worries throughout
your life time. You need to get ready looking for a partner rather than
waiting. If you don’t, then you might end-up being single. You are born to
contribute to everyone’s joy. Your best match is 2. Good matches are 1,4

Number 8
You have a very strong personality and people will find it hard to
understand you. You are more likely to suffer in your younger years. You
might be also the one responsible to look out for your family. You often
suffer all the way through life. You will learn life in a very practical
way. You are the one who will fight for justice and may even die in the
war too. You are normally very reserved with a handful of friends and most
of the time, live life alone and always prepared to help others. However,
once you settle down, (which is often late), then your hard lucks will
disappear. You will face unexpected problems such as encountering
poisonous animals, and accidents. You are highly- disciplined,
persistence, and courageous, and it is your strength that will take you to
success. You area great part of a family team. You are a fighter! Your
Best match 1. 4,and 8. Good match 5

Number 9
You guys are the most incompatible people in the world. You are so strong,
physically and mentally. You often have big-aims. You will work hard and
will think it’s still hard to get there, even if you already have gotten
there! Normally you suffer in the early age from family problems and
generally you will have to fight in life. You are respected by others. You
were however very naughty in your childhood, and often got beaten up by
your parents and had been involved in fights and you seemed to have
suffered lots of injuries. But when you grow older you become calm and
will fall into the quiet and dignified macho type. Love is not an easy
matter for you. You are however good in engineering or banking jobs
because people always trust you. Your family life is very good, but you
will always worry over your children. Your finer qualities are that you
are humanitarian, patient, very wise & compassionate. You are born to
achieve targets and serve every one equally without any prejudice. You are
a role model for everyone. Your best match 3, 5,6, and9.

…sweet about me…

Posted: Augustus 22, 2008 in Uncategorized

Hierdie is een van daai songs wat vashaak – ek het daarmee wakker geword in my kop vanoggend…en dit bly nogsteeds vir my ‘n baie oulike song… (dalk voel ek vanaand anders daaroor!)

This song is the debut single from the debut album Lessons to Be Learned. Gabriella Cilmi is an Australian singer whose genres are: indie, soul, blues, vocal jazz and rhythm. The peak position in different charts have been: Number twenty on UK singles chart, number 44 on Irish chart, number one on Australian ARIA singles chart and right now is the number 23 on the Europe Top 100 Singles.


Ohh watching me, hanging by a string this time
Don’t easily, the climax of the perfect lie
Ohh watching me, hanging by a string this time
Don’t easily, smile worth a hundred lies

If there’s lessons to be learned,
I’d rather get my jamming words in first so,
Tell you something that I’ve found,
That the worlds a better place
When it’s upside down, boy

If there’s lessons to be learned,
I’d rather get my jamming words in first so,
when your playing with desire,
Don’t come running to my place
When it burns like fire, boy

Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh

Blue, blue, blue, waves they crash
As time goes by, so hard to catch
Too, too smooth, ain’t all that,
why don’t you ride on my side of the tracks

If there’s lessons to be learned,
I’d rather get my jamming words in first so,
when your playing with desire,
don’t come running to my place
when it burns like fire boy

Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me, Yehh

Daar is ‘n tyd vir kom

en ‘n tyd vir gaan

die lewe het sy eie seisoene

en die lente klop NOU aan ONS deur…

[NEEEEEEEEE, ek gaan nie (alweer) ophou blog nie!! Hehehe :mrgreen: ]

Ek het vandag gedoen wat ek al vir twee jaar sukkel om te doen … EK HET BEDANK!

Vanaf 1 Oktober 2008 tree ek en my man in ‘n ander tipe vennootskap as die huwelik in – ons raak “sakevennote”!! Nogal ‘n scary gedagte – maar ons is ook mos darem nie meer kinders nie – ek WEET sommer net dit gaan ‘n GROOT sukses wees!! Ons betree nou SAAM ‘n nuwe seisoen in ons lewens – en ek kan regtig nie meer wag nie!!!

So wish me luck! Ek sal julle op hoogte hou van verwikkelinge!

…digkuns van ouds…

Posted: Augustus 19, 2008 in Uncategorized

Wat het van Afrikaanse digkuns geword? Daardie digkuns waarmee ons ouers en voorouers grootgeword het? Ek vang soms my skoonpa dat hy nog aanhaal uit hierdie gedigte, en dis vir my só ONTSETTEND mooi!

Ek loop nou die dag op Williston ‘n juweelboek raak … Afrikaanse Verse (5de Uitgawe/1942 deur DF Malherbe) … en hierdie pragtige gedig van CM van der Heever (Die Nuwe Boord), vang my oog.


Ek bou die paleis van die lewe
met my kragte deur arbeid gewin,
maar dis of ek huiwerend bewe
as ek telkens weer oorbegin.

So dood-sekuur lyk my die lyne
waarlangs ek my stene moet bou
maar later teleurstellingspyne:
waar is my verwagtinge nou?

En telkens kry ek ‘n spoortjie
en glo: ja, nou is ek reg,
maar soos in ‘n dorre ou voortjie
sink die water van vrugbaarheid weg.

Gedurig weer ‘n gedagte:
ja, eind’lik, nou het ek hom,
maar later verslap weer die kragte;
sal ek ooit by my einddoel kom?

Sal ek maar met sidd’rende hande
nog boustene bring en dan sug:
al tas ek verward langs die wande,
miskien sien ek eenmaal die Lig?

Ek bou die paleis van die lewe,
ek begin weer van voorafaan;
dalk sal op die end van my strewe
net lewensmurasies daar staan.
