A Lumbering Start

Cure all

Cure all

Today did not start well.

Still have a belly ache, but it is subsiding with the help of the milk of magnesia that I got this morning.

What really pissed me off today was that I discovered that my digital camera had been stolen. I used it on Saturday, but in my rush to clear up the BBQ I had left it on the table in the yard.

I discovered its absence this morning. It’s pretty obvious where it went as the only person to have been in my house was the laundry lady on Sunday morning who hung clothes alongside the table. Missing also was R$2 in coins I had left on the coffee table; this had happened once before, about six weeks ago with a R$2 note.

I was so rattled after discovering the theft, I couldn’t even nap. Then my afternoon student rang and cancelled. Okay that’s when I was off with a hiss and a roar. I went out for some therapy.

I bought some new handkerchiefs, milk of magnesia and then went hunting.

I found my prey after visiting three shops; a nice little Canon digital camera. I don’t feel so bad now and managed a nap when I got home.

Now I have to learn my new camera.

This time I’ll be a little more careful.

Oh, and the laundry lady, she’ll be getting a don’t-bother-coming-back when she turns up next week.

Now all that remains is to find a replacement laundry lady, or I could buy a washing machine; I’ve got the money there to pay cash.

1mensalãoBrazil has arrested most of the politicians and bankers that were found guilty in the mensalão scandal, although one escaped to Italy. It will remain to be seen how long they stay in prison. Some have already applied for habeus corpus, which is used far to flippantly here. Brazil’s justice system is a real mockery. Half of the accused, those sentenced to less than 8 years will start off spending only the night in prison, they will be allowed out during the day. Several more, who were sentenced to lesser terms (2 or 3 years), will never see jail, because they will be serving community based sentences. What a bunch of clowns?

The naughty Toronto mayors loses more powers…

Looks like New Zealand has lost its bid for the FIFA World Cup. Mex vs NZ last week, 5-1; next play off is on the 20th, Wednesday in New Zealand. There needs to be a miracle.

Looks like the beginning of the end, just had a nasty altercation with the bathroom. Looks like the old ENOs ad “If the bottom’s falling out of your world… take ENOs and let the world fall…”

With that inspirational thought.

Later.

Dizzy Lizzy Pills

I need one of these

I seriously need one of these

Despite my having taken the dizzy lizzy pills as prescribed at regular +/- give-or-take intervals, I still have the occasional dizzy lizzy.

Like last night, the final ten minutes of class threatened to send me into an embarrassing collapse in mid-flight. Then again during the night, I woke at 1, something, o’clock and tried to sit up in bed… whoops, wrong thing to do; I fell back in an amoebic-like heap and lay still letting the fan play across my sweating form until I finally fell asleep waking two hours later feeling fine +/-.

My head feels a little thick, okay, thicker than it normally feels! But I think (ouch that hurts) I’ll get through the day; especially as it is a day off.

Today, I attempt a god-like miracle. I will attempt the resurrection of my beloved little saucepan (see yesterday’s post). I haven’t got a fancy rock to roll away, and Mary Magdalene hasn’t stopped by, yet.

I so wanted smoke out of his ears, but couldn't find one

No, Bradley, I will not be calling you Celeste

Bradley Manning has, or at least, wants to be Celeste, the big question is, now that he has been imprisoned for 35 years, will the army let him?

You see, I was right again; the army judge didn’t award him the Medal of Honor which he justifiably deserved.

Obama really has his panties in a twist over these guys.

I bet he’s fuming over Snowden.

I so wanted smoke pouring out of his ears, but couldn’t find one. Google is really so slack.

Fish for lunch, baked, poached, fried, I haven’t decided… yet. Snap decision when I open the fridge. It’s times like these that I really miss my Lixo, he so loved the trimmings of the fish as I prepared it. Gone but not forgotten my little friend.

There has been a suggestion, that the use of nerve gas in Syria, was a deliberate attempt to escalate the situation to armed conflict, in effect a ‘false flag’ situation. These seem to be prevalent wherever America is involved, almost so prevalent as to be totally discarded as a coincidence. It really makes one wonder WTF is going on? And, personally, I find the answer scary!

Think of it like this…

shadyas

The dogs represent our traditional enemies and fears, whereas the cat represents our security… America.

I think that is a brilliant analogy… of course, I would, it’s mine!

Must blog along, much to do today, despite the woolly head.

Later.
