old times


3RM came over on Friday. Haven’t seen him since homeo sapiens decided to stand erect and transgress from mass banana eating to other foodstuffs.

He has a girlfriend now; 3RM is all grown up.

Months have gone by, and we decided to kick it old school, watch stupid shit on TV and catch up. Nothing has changed. If I didn’t see 3RM for 500 years, it would still be the same:

3RM: Wow there are a few new things about the place.

Peas: Yeah, and look, my favourite.

3RM: That’s an entire suitcase full of Friends!. Oh dear dude. Oh dear.


Peas: I didn’t get a cat. Remember that.

…………………..

Peas: Nice phone.

3RM: I’m still looking for a ringtone. It’s never an easy decision.
I’m thinking The Prodigy. It’s always about…what’s at the beginning.

Say…have you always owned that? [points to my antique retro chair]

Peas: No, do you like it do you like it?

3RM: Dude it’s a fucken school chair.

Peas: Exactly. R150 what a steal.

3RM: Except yours isn’t that chipboard, it’s like what you get on kitchen counters from the 70s…

Peas: Formica. Yes, that makes it even more valuable.

3RM: Check this out dude, you have to see this.

Peas: Why are we watching Kyknet? I don’t understand anything.

3RM: No you godda see this dude: ’N Boer Soek ‘n Vrou. It’s like The Bachelor, but for farmers.

Peas: Shut. Up.

3RM: Dude, serial – check he got 300 letters from applicants and he’s wearing two tone.

Peas: This is gold. This is too good to be true.

3RM: And look, no chinos. Beige shorts.

Good to know some things, in a world of constant flux and idiot drivers, that some things really don’t ever change.

True! Like the pyrimids! They dont change! I will pop you an email in 5 mins.. chat soon. Steven

Peas on Toast said...

Thanks Steven :)

Imagine if one day we woke up to find that the puyramids HAD changed? Like, suddenly, they were all in the shape of boats, not triangles??

DelBoy said...

We've got "Boer soek n vrou" over here too. (Obviously it's not called that!) On the previous series there was a female farmer looking for a man. I wonder if the new series will have 'Brokeback Mountain' farmers to keep it interesting...

The Levi Store, "My Secret Diary" said...

Na, boats are like boy things, imagine they turned into something like a 2010 soccer ball! Even worse! Or how about they changed into something shaped like a pair of Gucci shoes! The gals would be happy but the boys would bitch!
Not good when boys bitch!
Lets leave them as they are, like your China..

I'v heard of many many many things, but never a gay cowboy! :)

Peas on Toast said...

DelBoy - serious! Tell me more, tell me more - is it set in the outback? Are kangaroos part of the vibe? It is like The Castle - oh man, I'd give anything to see it - is it on YouTube by any chance?

Steven - haha, yeah those pharoahs might get their shit into a tizzle hey? Roll in their tombs, kind of thing :)
Although a giant pyramid show does sound awfully nice...:)

Can't say I've stooped that low as to actually sit down and watch an episode, but... Farmer wants a wife

Peas on Toast said...

DelBoy - classic. It's almost too good to be true. True Blue.

JL said...

But 'N boer soek 'n Vrou is like way better than The Bachelor because there's wheat. And where there's wheat there's corn. And everyone loves corn. So it's better than Egypt because they can't grow corn there I don't think. Instead they have curios stands and camels which are cool, but not like wheat OR corn. So 'N Boer soek 'n Vrou is better than Egypt too.

tyrone said...

Peas, why don't we enter you? Your blog-audience will write the letter?

It'll make for an interesting series of posts... And maybe even a new book!

Peas on Toast said...

JL - Oh yes, without corn this programme would go bust, let's be honest :)
Our rocks, because even with the random 'roos, we have corn! ;)

Tyrone - NO. I don't want to marry a farmer. NO!

;)

tyrone said...

Hey - you'll have a lifetime's supply of mampoer!

Bullbars.

Bakkies.

Veldskoene.

Peas on Toast said...

Why would that be an especially good thing dude?

;)

Revolving Credit said...

Boer Soek 'n Vrou is visually a bit dull. What, with all the beige and acryllic, they need to made add some bling, send some ghetto chicks to date farmers...call it Boer Soek 'n Ho.

tyrone said...

Well you seem to react well to that sort of thing... Seen the pics...

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - you're onto something. And I like it.

Pitch it to SABC china, they could do with some upliftment :)

tyrone - hahahaha, you mean BEATRIX does right? ;)

tyrone said...

Ok well let's enter Beatrix then... I don't care either way. Seeing you shake your ass on stage singing Suikerboosie will be PRICELESS!

The Levi Store, "My Secret Diary" said...

Yes.. i agree! Shake that ass girl! And I will take the photos for free.. You can then display them on Sages site on a Thursday.. HNT... You familiar with HNT?

SilverfoxV8 said...

Hi Peas...Love your blog. Perhaps, in between the mampoer etc, you may enjoy a few simple, but excellent recipes. If not...well then, no harm! Enjoy!

Peas on Toast said...

tyrone - I'll definitely chat to Beatrix about it - she'll be so stoked you considered her!

(I can't believe I'm saying this...;)

Levi - no what's HNT?

Thanks Silverfox! :)
