I am NOT Responsible

getoffyourasspre-Coffee Dangers:

1. Making that first coffee

I just woke up and the first blog I read this morning had a wonderful post,All the signs point to me getting off my ass…..

That’s exactly how I felt before I got up. Visit the blog, there are some great posts there.

So, what could I do? I got off my ass and made coffee. That’s where the danger lies, as I was not fully awake I overfilled the filter, and now I have gritty coffee.

It has to be Monday!

My student just rang, cancelled class, so my weekend has been extended to four days.

See, it’s Monday!


Mondays are complicated.

I don’t really have anything yet to write about, but I just had to get off my ass and post about getting off my ass.

I am still having catmares. Twice last night I had nasty dreams about Clorinha and had to change my thoughts; left me quite distraught. That’s why, when I finally fell asleep I slept so late.

I have never suffered such angst at losing a fluffy friend before.

When it comes to life and death, I am usually at ease because I realise that it is the nature of things and don’t tend to get bitter and twisted about it.

Sunny day out there, cool, but sunny. Rain forecast for Wednesday.

It’s birthday month for me. I have birthdays on 8th, 12th, 16th, 29th and 7th & 17th of Sept. Then it’s all done until next year. I usually take the ex and kids to a pizza restaurant, but this year money is a bit tight, so planning a BBQ on the 30th in the praça in front of home.

Well, that’s an hour gone. Fortunately I got some posts in in the early hours, but must blog along.

Oh, regards I am not responsible…


This is NOT the way to clean your CPU!


Pinky Promise

Pinky Promise

Never, ever, make a pinky promise with your cat!

It hurts.

Clorinha loves the shelves in my new old laptop table.

She sits on the top shelf and watches TV or wants to make pinky promises.

But mostly she just sits there looking… pretty.

Cold day today after a cold night. It was 2am that I woke freezing and pulled the cover over. Clorinha got under the cover too purring away under my chin.

I just had lunch. Not as glamorous as yesterday’s, left over fries reheated in the oven and left over cottage pie from a couple of days ago. I managed to hide the hardness of the fries with ketchup. I’m not a ketchup fan, but there are times when it’s the most appropriate thing in the fridge.

Furthering Clorinha’s meteoric rise to stardom, here is her latest film.

Clorinha and the Twig

One of the many things that find their way on to the living room floor.

There’s not much to do on a cold day. I have been waiting for a sign that I should have a nap, but the best sign I’ve seen so far is this…



I should obey the sign!

That’ll take care of the rest of the day!
