Angry, Birds

Different angry birds

Different angry birds

No, no, not these angry birds.

Angry & Birds

I am angry at the birds. They keep eating my guava off the tree.

I know a guava is ripe because it turns yellow, if I wait for them to turn yellow, the birds have already started to eat them on the cusp between green and yellow.

It’s hard to win.

The early bird gets the guava, bugger the worms.

I’m not even going to mention that game played by men with the round balls…

Except to say that today is our day to beat Germany.

I have red, white and bubbly in the fridge. Chilean Cab Sav & Chardonnay, and Italian (didn’t have any German) Lambrusco Bianco, it’s not exactly bubbly, rather Frizzante.

ghost-rider-2007I watched a sequel to Ghost Rider last night, what a load of rubbish. Sequels are never as good as the original.

Left me dog tired at 1am and terribly disappointed.

I was awake again at 3am.

I finally woke up at 7:45, 7:55, 8:05 and 8:15…

Yes, I was reluctant to get out of bed.

Clorinha, however, wasn’t and was demanding breakfast.

She got her breakfast and I got my first coffee of the day, then my second, then my third. It was about then that I was ready to face the day.

I didn’t do a full blog load yesterday, and due to the inevitable nap, today is a sequel; never as good as the first.

It’s now after three, I have denapped and had more coffee. I have fish defrosted, so guess what’s for lunch; which will only happen when I finish here.

I haven’t even read the news today. It’s quite possible that the world has ended, and I don’t even know about it. Although, from the noise that’s coming from the botequim, I doubt it. Much merriment.

That’s where I’ll be after lunch, participating in the merry-making. I will drink wine, and that’ll make me merry.

So, I’m off to particificate… guavaless.



When a day off is NOT

Dog Tired

I used to have Fridays off and then a nice weekend, but then things changed; and now I feel like this all week (check photo). It’s terrible, and has affected my blogging.

I am a little worried, one of my lower front teeth has been wiggly for a while, I’ve seen the dentist about it, but the cost of implanting it again is prohibitive. The last two weeks it has become more wiggly, I am afraid that it’s done for and I am waiting for the inevitable.

I hope the tooth-fairy makes it worthwhile. I mean six pence 55 years ago, plus accruing interest, then there has to be a pension benefit and moral damages…

Who am I trying to kid, some idiot?

(Ah, that was a rhetorical question, no need to answer)

After the heavy rain early on Tuesday morning, we have been promised rain daily, but last night on the forecast, it’s been delayed until Saturday. I think the weather is a government plot, designed to test our sanity.

Computers and laptops are cheap again. Why do they do this just before pay day? The offers all expire before I have the money. Mind you, this pay day, I wouldn’t have the money to spare anyway. It’s going to be a grim month.

Damned Red Rooster

My neighbour got a chicken about a month back. This chicken decided that my compost heap has heaps of juicy grubs to eat and comes in several times a day to scratch my compost heap all over the yard and savour the morsels. It escapes his place and gets in under my gate. This morning he decided to tell me that he’s discovered that he is a rooster and at 5:30am was cock-a-doodle-fuckin-doodling about it for a bout a half hour.

At about 5:45am I was seriously thinking about grilled chicken.

It’s getting time to go to work…

There goes my day off.
