Pssst...19 May 2014

Pssst… has to start off by asking: is Pssst… the only one that is shocked by Katjiepiering making it into the Serrie finals? Pssst… guesses that wearing short skirts has finally paid off for some reses and maybe others should follow Katjiepiering’s example if they want to be noticed.

No one seems to be too surprised by Boekenhout being in the final, but Pssst… hears the guys have been practising day and night to avoid placing second like they did last year. Pssst… reckons that Boekenhout should stop thinking that they rule student culture. No matter what anyone tells you, cocky isn’t an attractive look.

Pssst… isn’t expecting too much from Mopanie in the Serrie finals. From what Pssst… hears Engineering Week and Oesdag preparations took their toll on Mopanie’s Serrie practices. Pssst... thinks Mopanie needs to get over their mielie obsession, it’s just starting to get creepy, now.

Nerina won’t be in the finals and the holes in their ceiling from the male reses’ performances serve as a bitter reminder of this. Pssst... hears the holes still haven’t been fixed and that Nerina is threatening to send out invoices to Olienhout and Olympus if they don’t fix them.

Thursday nights at the clubhouses are over for good and Pssst... guesses that Katjiepiering cried the hardest (after Kollege, of course). Pssst... wonders where Katjiepiering plans to relocate to now.

Kollege’s last Thursday night social included everyone from Katjiepiering to Klaradyn and Lilium. Pssst... must admit that Lilium looked out of place even before they started to re-enact scenes from their risqué Serrie for the whole of Kollege. Pssst... needs to remind Lilium that Serrie is actually over and that the points they will be scoring from Kollege with those dance moves won’t count towards Serrie. Then again, Pssst... has a suspicion that it is exactly what Lilium wants. Pssst... thinks that Lilium should stay on Groenkloof campus where they can’t embarrass themselves as much. Maybe Lilium can do as Zinnia does and have sleepovers at Kiaat five nights a week.

Taaibos probably drowned their sorrows on Thursday night, not because of the clubhouse situation, but because Katjiepiering and Klaradyn both gave them bad marks for their Serrie. Pssst... suggests Taaibos get over it and stop sub-tweeting the girls’ reses. 

Pssst...13 May 2014

Serrie prelims proved that Pssst… doesn’t need to name and shame reses as they are more than willing to do it themselves. Take Kiaat, for example. Pssst… sees the boys haven’t paid any visits to the gym recently and a lot of girls wanted to gouge their eyes out when Kiaat took their shirt off during Serrie. Pssst... reckons Inca should do Kiaat, and themselves, a favour and hit the gym together.

Pssst... really thinks that Inca and Kiaat should have performed in the dark like Vividus Men did. Vividus Men’s Serrie was so bad that they were forced to switch off the lights and perform in the dark. Pssst... is relieved that Vividus Men didn’t follow their sister day house Vividus Ladies’ example and recycle a boring, overdone theme. Grease again? Lilium mimicked Vividus Ladies and stuck with the movie theme, but in true Lilium style, the only movie elements in their Serrie were those from X-rated movies. Continuing with X-rated matters, a Magrietjie judge was more involved in Kollege’s performance than she should have been when she started undressing a Kollege guy in front of everyone. Pssst... thinks it’s sad that this is the only way Magrietjie know how to get attention from their Rag partners.

Pssst...10 March 2014

Pssst… hears that things at Olienhout aren’t too great lately. Apparently the Olienhout seniors are unhappy about their first-years stealing their parking spots. And here Pssst… was thinking Olienhout were upset about some girls that raided their res. Pssst… suggests the first-years watch their back, the Olienhout seniors are clearly on a war path.

Maroela, however (a res that Pssst… normally associates with war), hasn’t been involved in any fights as of late. Pssst… reckons that foam parties and the Erika girls are taking up too much of Maroela’s time. Perhaps Maroela should watch out for Mopanie instead of tending to Erika’s “needs” because Pssst… reckons Mopanie are still plotting revenge against Maroela over the destroyed mielie patch.

While Maroela and Erika entertained themselves with foam, Pssst… hears that their neighbours Katjiepiering had their own fun with a blow-up pool. However, Pssst… thinks that Katjiepiering spent more time trying to get the pool into their res than they did in the actual pool.

Kiaat never ceases to amaze Pssst…. Luckily Kiaat didn’t strip naked this past week, but Pssst… reckons that the boys need some practice for the next time they decide to serenade Nerina. It seems Kiaat’s socials are always used as a way for Kiaat to show off their lack of talent. Nevertheless, Pssst… finds their shortcomings extremely entertaining.

Pssst...24 March 2014

Each week, res life is one step closer to resembling an episode of Days of our Lives, or even worse, 7 de Laan. Between all the affairs and divorces that have been going on with some Rag partnerships, Pssst… reckons it’s time to get out the popcorn and enjoy the drama.

Pssst…3 March 2014

In true student fashion, res students have taken to begging this past week. Pssst… is glad that the students are no longer filming themselves doing “good deeds” but reckons that the begging could be taken down a notch. Mopanie for one could do with some begging lessons because Pssst… does not think that overeagerness and desperation is a good look for the Peppies. While Pssst… thinks that a grown adult dressing up in a rhino onesie is rather embarrassing, Pssst… commends Olienthout for doing it for a good cause. At least Olienhout has a good excuse for begging for money, Pssst... wonders what Mopanie’s excuse is. Perhaps they need money to replant the mielies that Maroela destroyed?

So while some reses are begging for cash, others, such as Kiaat, are begging girls to beg them to take their shirt off. Pssst... doubts whether Kiaat would actually need money to take off their shirts, word has it the boys are always keen to show some skin. Just ask Inca. Pssst... hears Kiaat purposely hosted a water balloon social with Inca as an excuse to get naked for them. Pssst... must just point out that some Kiaat boys really should not have participated in this activity, but then again, Pssst... thinks Inca will take anything that comes their way. It’s not like Pssst... heard them complaining anyway.

It seems like Kiaat isn’t the only res that likes to show some skin. Pssst... thinks that Jasmyn and Olympus were a bit too happy about their “anything but clothes” social. Then again, Pssst... shouldn’t be surprised because when it comes to boys, Jasmyn is always eager.

Another res that is just begging for attention is Magrietjie. Pssst... would like to ask the girls to be a bit more considerate and tone the pink down just a tad. A piazza filled with pink girls is not a great sight to everyone on campus. Oh and while Pssst... is on the topic of begging for attention, can Lilium please stop complaining about all the duties for Miss Varsity Cup? If Lilium doesn’t want to be a part of the competition then Lilium should just quit. Pssst... doubts anyone would even notice anyway.

Pssst... hears that Asterhof is obsessed with Lady Gaga’s dance moves and plans to use them throughout their Serrie. Talk about originality.
