Brought to you straight from the plaas Lindy Lindawa Eksteen, is passionate about all things culinary and is constantly bringing in new and exciting treats for the office to indulge in. If it were up to her, marketing would consist wholly of Pinterest and Facebook posts, and rightly so! She has some of the most interesting boards online! We sat down with this marketing mogul and asked her a few questions, and the answers we got? Well read more to find out.
If you were given one sentence to best describe yourself, what would it be?
What you see is what you get.
In your opinion, name one random skill everyone should know.
Being able to cook a decent meal.
If a song were to be written about you, what physical feature would be sung about?
My man-legs. The song would probably be called “Hey look, Lindy’s got man-legs”.
What does your job at Snowball entail?
In a nutshell, I’d say it entails putting a creative spin on all communications from the company that is out there in the digital sphere.
Your first kiss, spill the beans! We wanna know 🙂
Oh it was magical. I must have been about 4 or 5 years old – at our holiday destination with my family. Our neighbor’s son promised me pop rocks (that popping candy that goes “tssshhhh”) and lured me to the back alley of their Kadette caravan.
Have you ever been in a fist fight, if yes, why?
It was more of a flat hand slapping-around. This stupid girl grabbed me by the gills when I had the mumps. I wouldn’t take it, so I smacked her in the face, just like in the movies.
If you had to be given anything humanly possible, what would it be and why?
Well if it wasn’t humanly possible, I’d like eternal health and happiness for me and my family, but if it is given by human, then I’d like a fudge factory. That makes different kinds of fudge – not just one boring nutty fudge with some side chocolate dollops.
If you could date any actor for a day, who would it be and why?
Emile Hirsch from Lords of Dogtown. We’re already engaged to be wed, you see, so I think the smart thing would be to date beforehand.
If you were going to write a book, what would the plot be?
It would be about a one-legged bunny that overcame his disability by making friends with everyone in the forest.
So what makes you go red in the face? What embarrasses you?
Probably when I like a guy and don’t know how to act. I’m normally quite relaxed and comfortable.I can’t flirt so save a cat, so it must be an entertaining sight when I strike up the courage to try!
Biggest fear, go!
Giving natural birth. In the movies they always make it look like you’re about to die any minute. I’d like to have kids, but that part can be omitted.
Name one of your ultimate pet peeves.
When you’re walking in a big crowd (like at a mall) and elderly people wander around aimlessly in front of you with their trolleys and they don’t know where they are. I’m in a rush! I need to go buy a coffee plunger and hate shopping, so I want to zip in and out quickly.
If you closed your eyes, what is the first memory to pop into your head?
Me at age 6, dancing in my parent’s living room to the song Vincent (Starry starry night) from Don McLean.
Out of your full schooling career, theres gotta be one year you loved the most, which was it and why?
Definitely standard 9. All my friends were in matric. The awkward standard 6 phase was over and we made so many silly memories. 17 is a cool age.
If you were given a restaurant voucher for 2 from your boss and had to take a colleague, who would it be and why?
Jennifer. I know she’s also into gastronomy, so I think we’d have lots to talk about.
Have you ever thought about what you would look like if you were a cave woman?
If yes, please explain what your behavior would be like.
Not much different to what it is now, let me tell you. I eat 6 square meals containing meat and biltong per day and I’m not a fan of shaving as much in Winter. Except when Emile Hirsch is on TV. That’s a special occasion.
Do you think of yourself as someone have a good beat for music?
Oh jeez, not at all! I’ve been given a prize for best dancer at a school dance before. But I think they felt sorry for me, ‘cause all I did was wave my arms like a windmill and that made everyone look up from their drinks.
If you had to be Hilda from 7de laan, what type of dish would you come up with for Pieter and Annelie’s wedding?
I honestly don’t watch it, but if I had to judge it, by the intro music tune, I’d prepare a rack of Venison with Shiraz red cabbage and a nutmeg sweet potato mash.
If someone was standing at the top of a building ready to jump and this caught your eye, you are the only person that sees this, what would you do?
I’d break out in song. I’d make up my own lyrics about the situation and play air guitar. Then I’d ask him if he wants to come down and play the imaginary base with me.
