Where’d my post go?
I have just woken from a wonderful nap, ready to put the finishing touches to a great post, and I find that it is all a dream…
Meanwhile, back in reality.
Today is the first day of Carnaval.
Not the ‘big-people’s’ Carnaval, but the ‘little-people’s’. Tonight Carnaval stars with the mirins parade; the parade of the ‘little-people’. Seventeen Samba Schools will parade the kids through Sapucai, just like the real thing.
But not just here in Rio, all over the country, kids will be wiggling to the sound of samba.
But let’s back up a little…
Earlier today I had great plans to catch up on yesterday’s PC drama, I planned to post like a crazy man, but I never got there.
The first problem was that I hadn’t realised what a daunting task it is to start XP from scratch, I became quite despondent.
Secondly, there was that wonderful smell of a churrasco (BBQ) wafting through the window, being driven by my wonderful 50cm fan, engulfing me, offering me relief from my despondency.
The only sensible thing to do was to go and investigate.
I put on my shorts, and poked my head out the gate. Sure enough they were having a BBQ at the botequim (bar) next door.
They saw me. Immediately recognising a possible participant; I was summoned… I obeyed the call. I am so weak.
I had planned grilled rump steak for lunch, it was in the fridge marinating, so a BBQ lunch wasn’t far adrift from my plans.
So, I BBQed, I ate and I drank until it was my turn at the BBQ. I cooked, I ate and I drank a little more.
My bottle of Tequila made an appearance, along with the traditional lemon (green ones) and salt.
At 2pm, I decided it was time, and went home for a nap, waking at 5pm. My plans of posting like a crazy man followed me to the bar and stayed there.
Yesterday, I mentioned GMO babies, I said it was an American thing, I was wrong, it was British. I don’t feel too bad about accusing the Americans, because, let’s face it, it’s the type of thing Americans would do, but the British beat them to it this time.
I follow a cheese blog. It’s not at all cheesy, actually it is a great blog. But today a flippant remark by the blogger mentioned cheese and Papua New Guinea in the same sentence.
Now that made me wonder…
How do you equate this…
and penis sheaths…
So I googled it and got this…
And got a page full of blank.
Given this information, I assumed correctly that cheese and Papua New Guinea don’t mix.
Moving right along, I must make coffee. My head is still a little woozy from the excesses of earlier.
