I’m of the opinion that the flood of public holidays at the end of April 2011 has made most South Africans quite lazy. It’s getting colder and that most of us are probably going to be home bound a lot more on the weekends (apart from a few crazy Super 15 rugby fans and die-hard party animals). I’m also of the opinion that we should suck up the sunshine as much as we can. Sunshine is one thing that South Africa as a whole can be grateful for. Not many countries in the world get as much sunshine as we do (well, maybe Australia).
The summer of 2010 / 2011 and the autumn of 2011 has been an awesome and eventful and I’m pretty sad to see them both past, but I’m also looking forward to cuddles with my pillow and late nights playing World of Warcraft. I suppose one can’t have the best of both worlds. We’re having a braai today on Freedom Day (like most South Africans on a public holiday). The fire is taking a bit longer than usual to get ready for the braai, which means that I’m allowing a few Black Label beers to simmer slowly through my system. I snapped this photo of the Black Label bottle on the table at the braai today and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 27th of April 2011.
Yesterday a photo featuring the Crowd at Arcade Empire during aKING Show was the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant.
