coffee-beautifulBrain explosion/implosion imminent!

Not sure which.

I’ve been awake for nearly two hours, I’ve drunk two coffees, brain does not want to function.

I have managed to post on five blogs (God alone knows how).

If it wasn’t for the laundry lady being here, I would seriously consider a nap was in order; just wait until she’s gone.

Last night I was watching the wrong TV channel, while I figured that out a movie started.

Avatar, I had never seen and partly because of the hype when the movie was released, I wasn’t particularly interested in seeing. I find that many movies given the ‘Hollywood bullshit’ treatment are crap.

Neytiri_ProfilbildBut my interest piqued, and I ended up sacrificing my news on the correct channel to see the first 45 minutes. I became fascinated by the blue aliens with pointy Spock-like ears.

My interest grew and I switched over to watch at each ad break during the novela (soap opera) on the correct channel. When that finished, I watched the rest of the movie.

Really, the movie is a sad indictment on humanity at the same time it was myth-making adventure to save a foreign species, in that the hero became a god-like leader to his adopted people.

I am now tempted to d/load the movie to catch the missing bits.

I guess it’s because I had a later night than usual that I am tired today.

afghancricketOne usually associates the game of cricket with England, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan and South Africa. One country that does not spring to mind is Afghanistan.

But you have to remember that Britain was there too, and cricket was bound to rub off. In the news yesterday I read that Afghanistan has qualified for the World Championship for the first time in 2015.

Well done, Afghanistan!

Certainly a change from the usual news about bombs, attacks and those nasty Americans.

I’ll make some fresh incentive coffee, and see if I can’t blog along.

Later.
