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.

So far, not even a ripple

With the end of the world supposedly approaching, you would have thought that there may have been some signs already.

I am curious as to whether it will be a slow rumbling sort of end, or a ‘rip-whoosh-bang’ ending. The latter would be so disappointing for one such as myself expecting a spectacle.

I got an email from a great friend yesterday. The tone of which was most unexpected given that this person is a scientist who has published many papers and speaks several languages fluently. He is also a pianist and has composed hence his reference to Beethoven’s 5th. Being such a serious type of person, it goes without saying that he is almost devoid of a sense of humour, not quite, but close. I sent him the YouTube link of my passion fruit flowers being inspected by an abelha negra (big black bumble bee) for pollinating (you can find the clip in this post). This was the reaction…

“I always wondered who uploads these shitty videos on youtube ūüôā

Very beautiful humble bee, indeed, I kept watching the video for hours. I mean, four hours. Again and again, absolutely stunning images. They fit very well to Beethoven’s fifth symphony (beginning). They also combine well with rice, vinegar and dehydrated cucumbers. And to the number 777. And, of course, to my favourite colour: smelly.

I think I am wheeled. Or at least, completely tired. Wheel, tire, who cares. The Chinese would anyhow say that I am a “wheeldo”.”

I was stunned. Having known this person for more than ten years, I never suspected, nor expected that.

Moving right along…

I see that the latest tragedy in the USA has planted the idea of gun control in Obama’s tiny little brain.¬† The aim of the government has been for sometime to de-arm the populace so as to reduce resistance to the government in the event of the coming crisis. What better way to achieve one’s aims than riding on the crest of the public hysteria wave; make it seem as it is what they want.

Today, I am classless. I cunningly combined today’s classes with yesterdays. So very shortly it will be beer o’clock, but before that I thought it only right that I should write a post.

The days continue to be hot, although yesterday showed promise of rain, lots of thunder and lightning, a light sprinkle and that was it. They have been promising storms since the weekend, so much for the hit and miss technology of the meteorologist.

People ask me if I am animado (looking forward) to Christmas. I am about as animated as a dead fish. Christmas fails to stir an iota of interest other than it’s a good reason to drink beer. The hype and commercialisation has destroyed any pleasure. In effect it is a day when I can’t give class, therefore don’t get paid.

My coffee cup is empty. I should consider lunch before beer o’clock looms over the horizon. The clouds of a good storm are already looming… probably come to nothing.
