It feels like a Monday.

Not that anything has gone wrong yet, but we have just finished a six day holiday period.

Yesterday was Dia do Zumbi (Afro-Brazilian Awareness day or Zumbi’s Day). Zumbi dos Palmares (1655 – 1695) was one of the Quilombo (fugitive settlements) freedom fighters of the resistance against the Portuguese.

So we have a short week this week.

It’ll be the weekend again before we know it.

I have a good crop of passionfruit growing on the vines alongside the house. Last year they didn’t fruit, so I am quite pleased. There is also a pumpkin plant that has sprouted from the compost heap and spreading along the fence; it has already had flowers and promises a lot more.

I see the Pope has written a biography of Jesus, what can he say that hasn’t already been said? Things like this annoy me.

The Gaza conflict is worrying. Israel is defending its rights to retaliate to the Palestinian rockets. They conveniently forget that it was they that caused the rockets by the missile attack that killed the Palestinian military leader. The USA has proved to be the wimp once again in defending the Israeli’s right. I found out the other night a new side to the Palestine/Israeli conflict. I was always under the impression that it was only religiously related, but it appears that Palestinian territorial waters off Gaza have more gas and oil than Israel; that wouldn’t have anything to do with it, would it?

Then yesterday I read about ‘designer vaginas’ where women want custom made perfect vaginas. I posted on that on They Say it’s in the Genes.

Just more proof that the world is totally screwed.

I get so morose at times when I see the inconsequential things that worry the world. Things like Starbucks, the fashion world and big boobs, people truly are pathetic.
