The Art of Doing Nothing

busy-doing-nothingIt’s Sunday.

I’m busy.

I’ve blogged my little cotton socks off already. The damned laundry lady arrived early; 6:40am, I hadn’t even coffeed.

In the words of Queen Elizabeth II… “We are not amused!”

However, one must continue in the face of adversity. I have now coffeed… four times and feel somewhat ready to face the day.

The laundry lady has gone. *Breathes huge sigh of relief*

Dilemma, doing nothing is so tiring, because you can’t stop to rest.

They say that it is impossible to ‘do’ nothing.

nothingimpossibleNot true, even if you are watching the veges grow, or paint dry…

IMG_1295The next thing on my agenda today is Nap-fu practice.

karmaI will consider which Karma to enjoy with lunch.

As I am thinking of sushi, there’s a good chance it will be sake. Because I have to open a bottle to mix a little with the rice.

Last night I made some gari (pickled ginger). It’s in the fridge pickling.

I was interested in the current economic recovery bullshit. An article yesterday made the observation that the current slump is the worst since 1860. So where does that leave the ‘recovery’? Any suggestion that the economic situation is recovering is a myth.

Hong Kong’s leader CY Leung is a cowardly wanker feathering his own nest with China’s communist regime because he’s too scared to think for himself. Bloody wimp!

Why does China continue with this ideology? It is well proven and documented that communism doesn’t work. Why did Russia chuck it out? This is where Putin is a political Neanderthal, he dreams of a renewed communist Russia. He’s another wanker.

Ever noticed that in general, the world is governed by wankers?

Ebola, the first tests on the Guinean proved negative, second test today to confirm that result. Okay, that’s a sigh of relief. But lat night a politician announced that the chances of Ebola reaching Brazil is negligible; I call bullshit on that. A second case in America, one of the health workers caring for the Texas guy who died, has now tested positive. The snowball has started rolling.

I mentioned the other day about gun control… Check the video that I posted on Tomus Arcanum today. It’s got a lot of ‘fowl’ language, so if naughty words curl your hair, don’t click on the link. But I think it’s hilarious and says a lot about attitudes.

Yesterday reached 39ºC, that’s about 100ºF+. My plants didn’t wilt, because I watered them and sacrificed my cooked breakfast which I had at 4pm with beer at the botequim. That’s what I love about my life, flexibilty, nothing is rigid, plans can be changed.

Last night at 10pm I felt peckish (NO! I’m not pregnant), so I got a pastel (a fried filled pastry); calabresa (smoked sausage) & onion… I farted all night. It was enough to keep anyone awake.

I think the plants deserve another drink before Nap-fu, although I don’t think the day will be as hot as yesterday; I’m not taking chances.

Later.

UPDATE!

Remember what I said about flexibility?

Well, while I was watering the plants outside my gate the botequim was setting up the BBQ… well, there’s only one thing to do. Put the Nap-fu on hold and have BBQ for breakfast… 🙂

Life is wonderful.

Plan B

PoweredbycaffeinePlan A was yesterday, go to the supermarket.

I opted for Plan B, go to the supermarket tomorrow.

It is now tomorrow and I didn’t take into account that it would be pissing down with rain.

I have to go to the supermarket, because the fridge was empty yesterday, today it is ultra-empty. I have enough milk for two more coffees, then it is Armageddon.

Actually, I do have food, but it is all frozen, and I am saving it for my birthday BBQ next month.

I woke early this morning, at counter-productive o’clock. It was like 5am. Normally, I am okay with waking at that hour, but I chose to watch the TV movie, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, the one with Nicholas Cage. It was coolish, predictable, but coolish. It finished at 1am+, whereas I am normally in bed before 11pm. Waking at 5am didn’t gel well at all.

In the news, we have these dopes ah, doped athletes. We need to take a stronger stance with this doping shit. I am all in favour of lifetime bans, none of this banned from the next event pussy footing nonsense. Ban them from all competitive sport for life. Would they run the risk then? Probably…

The news has once again been full of major headlines for five days. A Glee actor was found dead. The people need to know about this, spying on emails is not important, climategate is not important, the world is not important.

I have discovered a paradox. We all need a healthier diet…

aservingoffruitSee, the world is just full of paradoxes.

These are the things that I come to grip with on a daily basis, they torment me, they twist my mind, blacken my soul.

Last night on the TV news, after seeing the C-130 land yesterday on all channels various times, they showed the Popemobile being unloaded; not once, not twice, but three times. I was soooo enthralled. It was accompanied by more wood hugging and kissing. Such devout believers in a myth.

There is no such thing as heaven and hell as places, they are hopes and fears in the dark corners of people’s minds. I fail to understand how ‘intelligent people allow themselves to be controlled by a perpetual myth, perpetrated by those who want to control.

karma1Enough, the rain has stopped, time to get out of my pyjamas and dash to the supermarket.

Any odds that it will start raining again as soon as I poke my head out the gate? Murhy’s Law in action.

Later.
