You lucky, lucky people

Hmmm, still blank

Hmmm, still blank

I have an hour to write a post.

I don’t promise any miracles, but I can’t in all good conscience go off to work with out putting pen to paper, so to speak.

The paper of course is blank, which is how most of my posts start. I have no preconceived idea as to what I’ll write, if anything.

Sticky Balls

Now I bet that conjures up images, which are probably nothing to do with the sticky balls I am referring to. Apparently they have discovered that nano-sized sticky balls can help stem the spread of cancers via the blood stream.

I was disgusted by an report in the news that an eight year old girl has been arrested in Afghanistan, She was a suicide bomber dressed in an explosive jacket, but she had forgotten how to activate it giving rise to suspicions at the roadblock and time to prevent her demise. What sort of people resort to this kind of thing in the name of religion? I don’t need to name the religion.

While Canada and the US are suffering the effects of this polar vortex, people are saying “well that puts paid to global warming!” They might be freezing, but here in Brazil we have global warming, actually it is more like global scorching. So just because a part of your world is cold doesn’t mean that others elsewhere aren’t suffering from the reverse.

I have already had my dose of cold today.

It’s not the forecast 39°C they promised, but it is so refreshing to have one of these machines just outside the gate.

Zambia has arrested the leader of the opposition because he called the president a ‘potato’. Obviously the president is a thin-skinned potato if he can’t take criticism.

Ever heard of the ‘Carolina Reaper’?

No? Neither had I until today. Apparently it is the world’s hottest pepper created by a grower in Southern Carolina. It is said to have a heat factor similar to the pepper spray used so gleefully by US law enforcement. To add the sting, the pepper has a tail like a scorpion.

Contrary to popular belief, tooth decay is not a modern problem. Severe decay has been found in teeth 13,600 years old. Around the time man added carbohydrates in the form of corn to their diet.

Well, time to get desmellified and look like a teacher; it instills confidence in ones pupils.


Iridescent Green Poop


Battling the Monday Blues…


with coffee


and a Cummin’s diesel purring at the idle in my lap

My evening student has just canceled, I have one mid-afternoon, so that’s good news , because I want to start the week off slowly so I don’t get the wobbles.


Press in case of wobbles

I see the doctor tomorrow and hopefully get some good news; like I won’t need a reset button implanted somewhere.

A sunny weekend which continues today, change expected tomorrow.

Flamengo lost yesterday against Corinthians. It was 4-0 when I flicked the TV off in disgust at 42 minutes into the second half. I doubted that Flamengo was going to make much impression in the last three minutes; I mean there is hope and desperation…

I could always market it

Kitty piddle in a bottle

Cloro has mastered the poop-side of things, but her little piddlometer needs some fine tuning.

I could always market it.

Who knows, Cloro Kitty Cola could outsell Coca Cola. Imagine the blurb, all natural, no added sugar… Just piddle in a bottle.

At least she hasn’t started to poop iridescent green, the title was just to attract your attention.

But then I found this…

Wow, scary

Wow, scary

The stuff actually exists.

If Cloro starts doing that, I’m sending her back to Chernobyl.

At the moment she is racing crazily round the house. Up on the bed, around the bed, under the bed, over the sofa skidding around the kitchen and back to the bed. Talk about being on Hedgy Bull (that’s how they say Red Bull in Portuguese).

I read this morning that football (soccer, for our American cousins) is not a religion. Someone forgot to tell the Brazilians. It said that football lacks theology. Footy has as much theology as I ever found in the bible. Just because it’s in the bible they call it theology instead of a fever. At least football’s god has substance and you can prove that it exists.

Must be nap time. I tossed up whether to go to the supermarket or bed, the bed won.
