Winter is robustly gaining momentum in Gauteng. Last week I was woken up in the early hours of the morning by a subtle but compelling cracking sound. I lay in bed, listening intently to figure out whether I could ignore it or whether I was going to be burgled by a hooded gang. Suddenly, it sounded as though I had been hurled into The Damnation of Faust. The cracking had reached earthquake level and was emanating from my floor. I leapt out of bed, fled from my bedroom, ran back for my phone (I wasn’t going to lose my Grindr contacts) and stood astonished in the doorway watching the tiles lift and crack and shatter. I didn’t know whether to try and save something else before my apartment collapsed into that of my downstairs neighbour or warn her first. Thankfully, nothing collapsed. It was just that cold that the flooring couldn’t deal. Having been in Thailand for most of 2012, the last winter I experienced was almost two years ago. I don’t really own snug hoodies and trackpants. It’s not even June yet. I’m so fucking scared.
But even in these dark days of impending doom, there are rays of light. And I suggest one snatches them and hold tightly the fuck on. In the words of Youtube’s Davey Wavey, there are many uplifting things on which we can actively focus such as ketchup, and nipples, and ketchup on nipples. Hmm. And so, after watching the clips of the readings of the Marriage Amendment Act in the New Zealand parliament, I realised that the light at the end of the tunnel isn’t a train. It’s a huge-ass glittering disco ball. I’m feeling a particular sense of pride and inspiration in terms of being gay thanks to Maurice Williamson et al. No winter, real or otherwise, is going to break me. And to assist everyone else in bravely soldiering on, I’ve packed a lunchbox of comfort food to perk you right up. Whether you’re pissed about the world’s injustices, your job, your boyfriend or simply the weather, here’s a treat to cheer you up in a gay ol’ way.
