Because it’s Friday and because I love a weird (okay, kind of useless fact), below is the most searched, read and picture downloaded post on Ameezing, ever. Featuring a bare foot Mr Ameezing, me dressed like a Voortrekker (some have said Amish) and a little story about a birthday party.
I wonder if it’s to do with school projects? A Voortrekker scrapbooking group? Crazy, scary internet people with a herd of cats and a thing for bonnets? I guess we’ll never know…

The Voortrekker and the Chang drinking Thai Fisherman
A little while ago, Aadil and I went to a dress up birthday party where the theme was ‘Dress as your Heritage’. Holy Panda’s Toenails it was difficult, especially when your heritage is kind of 1820′s Settler, kind of Irish-ish. Fortunately, my little brother, the Ameezing Joel Janse van Vuuren, whipped up this super Dr Quinn-esque skirt and kappie (the shirt is from my wardrobe, I wear it on ‘Nerdy Librarian’ days). Voortrekker chic, no? Aadil wore traditional Thai fisherman’s pants and a Chang Beer shirt. A girl at the party said to me, ‘Wow, what was it like growing up Amish?’ The other outfits at the party were a mixture of farmers (with combs in socks, ob), Jewish schoolgirls, one British soldier and a German lederhosen wearing guy. Ameezing.
