To be famous, I need to change my image.

It seems to have worked for Lindsay Lohan. Smeagle became famous!

Then again, maybe I need someone famous to promote my blog…


I’ll try anything… well almost anything!

I got a pleasant surprise last night; WordPress acknowledged a milestone on my Genes blog.


Could be that things are looking up, although, I have never recovered the readership that I had before the 26th Jan and the dramatic drop that happened.

Even passing the 1,000 likes Genes doesn’t rise above 10 daily visits. Go figure!

cinco-de-mayoI suppose I should wish you all a Happy Avocado and Hot Sauce Day.

Well, it’s actually Cinco de mayo, but as I don’t celebrate Cinco de mayo, I make it Happy Avocado Day.

Nothing like a good guacamole dip and tomato hot sauce to have with my nachos.

During the night I had to slake my thirst, first I bumped into the door jamb, then I kicked the sofa, then I thought what a good idea it would have been to turn the light on.

Sometimes good ideas come after the event.

It was about that time I saw a fleeting movement on the kitchen shelf. I rustled a bag and a rat leapt out into my vege stand then decided to beat a hasty retreat to the bathroom.

Then Lixo arrived home… where was he when I needed him?

2am and he wanted tickles, I told him to get the rat first and rolled over.

None of the above was amongst my plans to post about today.

I had planned to post about cheese making, but I guess that can wait for another day.

The sun is out, the day promises to be a 35°C autumnish day. I will go and sweep the yard. That will raise a sweat that needs to be quenched. I will then do some quenching and think about lunch. The nachos are for TV snack tonight.



A Comfort Stop

beerAfter yesterday’s depressing news, I opted for a comfort stop last night after class. Yes, I headed for Brazeiro, my favourite BBQ restaurant, red meat and beer…

Oh, the bliss!

But I was a good boy. I avoided the other gout irritating foods like scallops, herring, turkey and liver. They didn’t have any…. LOL!

I am currently looking out the window. It has decided to rain somewhat heavily, just an hour before I am due to leave for work. If it continues, I’ll cancel the first class and hopefully stay dry for the second.

I had hoped to go early and pass by downtown to pay my rent. But I have this aversion, get wet to part with money… don’t be stupid! I had also hoped to buy an extension chord and remote for my ‘new’ TV and do my reorg tomorrow. But that can wait.

mr_bean_popeI see we have been poped!

I was a bit disappointed that it only took five votes over two days. You get a better deal with Big Brother, at least they are sequestered for three months. I have about the same level of interest in both the conclave and BB… zero! You can read about the similarities on They Say it’s in the Genes.

Now, the big question is, can Pope Francis drag the church screaming from the Middle Ages?

I need more coffee…
