Then it Dawned on Me…

hate-mondays-500x500That yesterday was Monday!

No wonder the day was so screwed up.

It’s Tuesday now, and the belly ache is subsiding. I’ve never had one so severe, there was something that I had that really didn’t agree with me.

Sunny day here, it is expected to reach 33°C, and that will be exactly when I am due to walk to work in the strong sunshine.

Cloro is back the plastic bag. Earlier he was asleep in the same bag when I played a video clip where the blogger’s cat had been attacked by a fox and was being taken to the vet. Oscar’s meowing brought Cloro out of the bag in panic; I had to cut the sound. It then took me quite some minutes to calm him down. Who said animals don’t have empathy? Anyway, he’s quite happy to be back in the bag and is giving his nuts a good washing, so all is well.

I recently discovered that I may have been subjecting you, dear readers, to unsolicited advertising inserted by WordPress, for this I apologise. One more reason why I hate WP. I never had this problem with BlogSpot. My hatred of WP is only exceeded my by intense distrust of Google aka BlogSpot; that’s why I am still here.

Several times...

Several times…

Today is World Toilet Day… tell me about it! I would be hard pressed to determine if I have spent more time there (in homage) than in front of the keyboard.

Why do we have a World Toilet Day?

Is someone afraid we’ll forget them?

Monty Python is going to return after a 15 year absence. They are planning a stage show with the original cast. I have spent a good part of the morning checking out past shows. Their humour is so banal as to be genuinely funny.

Zombie cyclist

Zombie cyclist

My gripe today is about cyclists and motorists. I remember the days when I used to drive, you need to have all your faculties and senses about you. Hearing is one of the prerequisites for driving. How can you drive without hearing what’s going on around you? How can you even change gears without the sound of the engine? So for me, loud music in cars and the wearing of earphones by cyclists and motorist, is a road hazard. This has been commented on by the mayor of London, saying they should be banned as half the cycling accidents in London are a result of this; and I heartily agree with him. They are tantamount to dangerous driving and should result in loss of licence, or bicycle in the case of cyclists.

Don’t come crying to me when you get run over and smeared across the road by a semitrailer, because I don’t sympathise with idiots. Some people are just plain idiots. Idiots should be made to pay for their own hospital bills in full and not encumber the health system because of their stupidity.

It’s lunchtime, my tummy is rumbling, it’s empty. Do I dare try something light for lunch?

I must admit that the belly ache has been good for losing some girth, I can see my toes now without leaning forward; as for other parts of my anatomy, they still remain a mystery.

I’ll leave you with a quote from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…



The Peasants are Revolting

WizardofIdSomething happened in the past week that reminded me of the lines (as best I remember them), now for the life of me, I cant’ remember why I was reminded; it was to be fundamental to the post.

Mel Brooks had a go in “History of the World, Part 1″ Count De Money is telling the King…””Your highness, the peasants are revolting.” and the King says…””You said it. They stink on ice!”

Anyway, must blog along.

This post will be the product of at least two mugs of coffee, marmalade on toast and no intentional distress to Cloro; or other cats for that matter. Except the little vixen from next door, if she continues to shit in my laundry; which she has already done this morning.

I get miffed. There are certain blogs where the post consists of an opening paragraph, then you get Read more… WTF? I hate this. I generally race for the little red X in the top right corner, unless a word in the first sentence doesn’t up and slap me with interest in the face. The only time I do this is when I post an article from another source such as a newspaper, then at least I post the pertinent stuff before sending the reader for deeper reading. But generally, my posts are complete.

I posted an interesting article City of Ghosts on Tomus Arcanum yesterday. It surprised me to read about Wan Chai, a suburb in Hong Kong. When I was younger (years 11 – 15) I had a plethora of penfriends all around the world including two from Hong Kong; both from Wan Chai. So it surprised me to read of the decline and the haunting of this once prosperous suburb.

I read with interest a few moments ago that some football (soccer) clubs in Britain are banning the local press from their press boxes, after (in one case) 100 years of loyal coverage. The bloody club concerned want £10,000, for the privilege. Turns out that many clubs have done the same, one even banning the BBC, that’s tantamount to treason. Of course, there is a solution… all newspapers and broadcasters, radio and TV, just spend a month pretending that the football clubs don’t even exist. No coverage whatever on any media; make the bastard clubs bleed. This kind of attitude pisses me off in the extreme.

OMG, I’ve just realised, no pictures on this post yet. Golden rule of posting, at least one image.

Monty Python… on Peasants and Kings…

I think I feel a BBQ coming on…

There goes Saturday!
