spring day, 1990

spring day was a sad day for diana

every spring day (sept 1st) at our primary school there would be a ‘spring hat’ competition for the younger kids. don’t ask me why, but we all took it pretty seriously. well, perhaps i didn’t take it AS seriously as some of the other seven year old girls – whose MOMS made their hats. needless to say, i didn’t win. it was a sad day for my my little ponies.

(my mom was probably laughing hysterically when she took this photo, bless her.)

first steri stumpie billboard ever, how classic! for those non-afrikaans speakers, the headline reads “we flavour milk”. simple, to the point – i like that. i would have loved to drink my steri stumpies from glass bottles, too – industry people take note. strawberry geur for me, please.

hahaha. taken in betty’s bay – he was waiting for his person, who was surfing. note: don’t watch marley & me. not only is it an entirely average / shit movie, it makes you CRY because the dog dies (spoiler), and if you’ve ever had a dog – you’ll understand.
