Another Week 50 - American Hustle, Gravity, Super Bowl, Oscars, Estes Park Colorado and

Prince Harry

The Dimple is the way to go

Well., because that's three pairs of shoes trainers cross-training running shoe thingies soaked through and not properly dry YET, I had to resort to wearing/using my fourth 'reserve' pair today.. and now I've developed an effing blister.. I guess I should have got ALL the same pair 'cause the others fit me perfectly..; damn the fourth pair.. Now I know why I think what I think  and feel what I feel.

Fiction Writing
E-mails., fear and etiquette
Distance., travel and etiquette
authenticity., performance and etiquette
Cliques., courage and is sincerity

Teach me
Guide me
Show me
I will learn
I can

Writers writing drivel
words making up numbers
 Minimalism, minimalistic and minimalist
'cause 'that' added word is sooo unnecessary


There are signs on the floor, there are signs on the door
 There are signs on the walls, there are signs on the posts
There are signs in the air and there are signs everEEwhere
Signs, signs and signs

Innocence and simplicity

I make my bed everyday and segueing right along wha tis punctuation Speaking of punKtuation is it a comma.. period Aren't we lucky to have pillowcases

Two lions, a palm tree and a raven
Forty Days & Forty Nights

So., this is the deal., again.. OBSERVATIONS.. 'Observations' are fact., right.? Aren't they ? Really.? I mean., if I see a car with a flat tire., does that car not have a flat tire..? If I see a guy with a can of beer., am I not seeing a guy with a can of beer.? and if I see a leaning beach hut with faded peeling paint and rotten wood., is it not there.? How about some dude sat on a bench who keeps asking me if I want to buy a Big Issue.; am I imagining it..? and if you'd like some customer service and it's simply not there., am I imagining that too..!

Lowe Alpine Packs
AirZone Pro 35:45 
Cotswolds Outdoor people are great..; well the one guy I spoke too was.. The bus experience was just that., an experience.. There was a loud telephone conversation going on behind me about the one dude making 16 pounds in the last hour selling five books and was it worth him coming 'in' for two hours.. and if he did, how many more books could he get with his 16 pounds. Apparently he could get 12, because he asked for 12 .. He ended his conversation loudly enough for one or two passengers to turn around., eventually by telling the person on the 'other' end of the line, not "thanks, bye".., but.. and I quote., "don't masturbate too much.!".. True story..; why do some folk feel they need to speak  extra loudly on a phone (?)., especially while in such a confined public space..!  I noticed that combs, brushes, make-up and a wardrobe sense isn't that much of a priority too.. This was also an observation., but accurate nonetheless.. and while I obviously can't speak of every bus journey., or passenger., this one WAS an experience.. There were walking sticks, walking frames, children's buggies., shopping buggies squeezed in.; there were lots of shopping bags, baggy sweat pants and telephone conversations.. There were lots of 'accents'., dialects.. and lots of bus passes.. There were old people, young people and people in leather.. There were lots of piercings., comb overs and staring around.. There were dogs., crying babies and farts.. Texts., arguments and complaints.. One girl on the phone was definitely gossiping about her work and a colleague who had apparently changed her 'hours'.. Many headphones, earphones and deaf aids.. a couple of books., one Kindle and lots of sandwich, crisp/chip and cookie/biscuit/choc' eating.. There was a child whistling., a wave and one person took a photo with her Blackberry... Many passengers leaving the two buses I rode on thanked the driver.; when asking the second driver about my return ticket, he immediately jumped to the wrong assumption about my, as yet 'unseen' ticket, telling me "that it was probably the wrong ticket for this bus.." - It was infact the CORRECT one., but the whole jumping to and forming of 'a negative assumption' appears par for the course., baby.. Observations uh..

I'm outta


What's everybody talking about

Thanks this week go/goes to Claire Koch - Chris Du Plessis - Mtombi - Alan Young - Eric Kunkel - Elena Shumilova and Trigger

Another Week 49 - Michael De Beyer, "Violent Storms Batter Britain", Arctic Air and


New London Black Taxi


and where is it

Landscape., fauna and flora.., of a certain type..
living with condensation

I have a hill to meander walk venture down., which will only mean I've got to climb it back., at some point..; the question is., do I take an umbrella., or do I hug the huts..?

I can see the need to wash your car., but have no clue as to why you would attempt to dry it..; "offside" I hear you shout.. I've been trying to think if I have a blatant bias against something so trivial.. I guess the deal is that while I'm a fan, I've kinda outgrown the screaming and shouting at a couple of players mainly who play for opponents and/or perhaps referees who 'appear' to be human beings..

The Black Pearl

I kinda grew up knowing about Eusébio ., watched him.. and well remember that moment, when 'clean through', Mr. Stepney stood his ground and saved the day/night.. Mr. da Silva Ferreira's sporting tap and acknowledgement is still remembered and respected..

Animal print coats seem to be worn by the same/similar kind of hairstyles., I've noticed.; have you.? I just took a social media quiz thingy and my knuckles are dry.. Baseball caps.
Damnit., I can see rings dancing in the bloody puddles AGAIN..  and she's still drying her car off.. ART., art..; I need to see me some art today.., or at the very least., textured movement., sounds.. and.., drat.., there ain't gonna be much., if any color today..; bummer.!
So., yes.., I got drenched to the point that I just rung my gloves out..; really appealing.. Is Puma, Pooma.. or Pewma and Addidas, Addeedas or Addidas.. an' while we're at it., is Nike., Nykee or Nyke..? I like Marmite on crumpets.. and views from a tropically located verandah..

Does walking with your shoulders hunched up to your ears, your head down while exhibiting a frowned or pained  expression really work for keeping the rain off one's bod'..

I stood on the edge (today) and not only felt the spray hit my face., but my legs wobbled too., man..

Searchin'., lookin'.. an' researchin'., baby

Who said that.?

I don't need to watch Sherlock.; sorry.. I'm sure it's great., but my cup of tea ain't that flavor.. I'm kinda relieved that I've got another pair of training., running.,  hiking., outdoors type boot things, 'cause two are now soaked with little to NO indication that they will be dry anytime soon..
I watched Drive with Ryan Gosling in it.. and let me tell ya..; I watched it.. man.. I also hit the shredder too.. , but really, what is it with tea., coffee shops and potatoes., again.! Long live fresh air., sunlight and chocolate..


So., if I told you I walked  up the infamous Landsdowne Road today and saw one guy aKtually peeing on the street., front and center., a policeman book a car, two separate 'traveling' dudes.. and he hadn't reached the three who were sitting, staggering., falling over on the wet pavement in and around a doorway  while arguing and hugging their cans of Carlsberg....  I stepped over three separate 'areas' of broken bottles., passed two cracked store front windows..  and noticed two new student accommodations being built..
Welcome to the town

 Are We There Yet



A little black screw just fell out of the bottom of my laptop., which can't be a good sign., can it.!


There are moments., times


Book a ticket & Just leave

Thanks this week go/goes to Eusébio - Cheerios - Keith Hill - Plastic Jeezus - Quirky the blind kitten - Cara Delevingne -  Cheapflights and Kaiserhof Restaurant and Wunderbar

Another Week 48 - Predictions for 2014, Mean Girls, and Paragraphs

PartAY season

Tis the season to be jolly and patient..; tis the season for crowds and lines queues lines., tis the season for booze.; tis the season for extravagance and tis the season to stress., unless.. I confess., you turn up with less..
Tis the season for choirs., for bells, for overindulging and for forgetting..; forgetting the reason of the season..
Tis the season for trees., for fires and for love..; all together now..
While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks.. baby

Shopping carts full of crisps chips crisp chip thingies
Shopping carts full of sugar and vino plonko
Shopping carts full of bread and toilet rolls
Shopping carts full of boxes of cookies
Shopping carts full of coat hangers

Ho ho ho

I'm traveling again.., well, immediately after my meeting.., to the world of parties, trees and sounds of gravel., to where the air is clean and the land peaceful, plentiful and generous .. Friends are getting older and the bottle bank's gonna get fuller.. It's going to be a smashing time..
There will be fires a crackling., trees a smellin'..; there's a tradition a traditioning.. Laughter., surprises  and time for reflecting., for planning and for getting rid of oodles of wrapping paper..
 Black hoodies., red vino.. 
white cars..

I'm groovin'  to the point of wearing a shirt., with an aKtual collar man..- stereotypes and vision.. Life an' friends..Sometimes it just works and today it's working it's magic., whatever it is.. Options, opportunity, adventure and change.; spontaneity., light and a new razor.. It really can be that simple sometimes.. Divas, princess' and regular funky folk.. and  irregular, unfunky folk., like moi..

What's hot
So I've got this idea., like.. ; like for da spring and 6 to eight weeks (possibly ?) baby.., but until then I'm going to listen to some music., write a little and continue placing one foot infront of the other all while taking in the moments of life..
Grow Old With Me
Tom Odell

Cheers to the great lyricists of the world., for the great artists and for gas stations.. It would be a bloody long assed walk without 'em.. and if I'm going to enjoy the arts., man, I need to get my ass there with the help of a pump and full tank...
 Today I'm feeling Pollack., Jackson Pollock .., Matisse & The Stranglers..; today I'm feeling the way new socks make me feel.., the way a bowl of cereal makes me feel and the way clean glasses make me feel..

Isy & JJ

I think I start with the same foot each time I hit a set of stairs.. I wonder who measures set the parking space space in a UK car park..! My guess is someone who rides a bike (perhaps a councilor?) and is only about 120lbs and 5'5" tall.. an'/or they haven't been changed since cars were narrower, smaller.. They simply send out the worker type folk to paint on the ground a few white lines here and there according to the 'rules' made in 1901 an' seconded by the man in the local pub.. Ok, people, gather round., lets see how many parking spaces we can paint in this space and call it a car park.; forget the size of today's cars and forget the fact that people need to actually open their car doors., let's just pack 'em in nice and tight.. Remember the good ole days when Minis were Minis.; remember the days when we had motorbikes and sidecars... and remember the days when we had to rub shoulder to shoulder in them thur vinyl/plastic front seats., well, those days aren't gone, let's pack 'em in., the little buggers, the little sods.. Let's make 'em remember that little cars were effing little.. Long live wind up windows., MG Midgets, Minis and anything that gave you cramp... Car parking spaces and local councilors that (and who) haven't evolved quite like the size of a modern car..- I'm off to pull a muscle and contort my way out of the car..


The choir and Gareth rock..

Ricky's Place

'k, so I'm back., , I've eaten lot's of choc'.; parties done, fires lit, taken in the bloody Big Issue guys ALready and stood on stage in the rain..
          So., this is the deal., baby..; The road was fast., the seat was comfortAble.., but man., man that sand is right up to the top of the.. wheelie bins.. and that fourth and fifth gear are bloody "long legged".., so if you need a car review, I'm yer man., man..
.. and what's the deal with the Chines., dude.. The beach was on the boardwalk... Some people are funny.., while some aren't.; Jock's really funny..

 The new year's started with a new year., duh.. and while Gaza Barlow is unbelievably talented., he's also really too much for me to take in anymore than about five., or six minutes of him..; the dude's kinda 'safe', a tad boring and a little 'indulgent' (maybe?)., for my tastes., but hey., the geezer's a good guy.., I think.. Which brings me onto the fact that I got me some new toothpaste..; well., it's kinda clean, sparkly and too much on the brush., makes ya sick..

Oh.. and 'yeah'.., we've had some storm type action.. Da whole beach moved baby..

I haven't had a cold yet., but man, being sick and waking up face down on the floor is as much the pits as finding out you slept on the bathroom floor....- One Passed Out old guy who left his stomach in San Francisco., baby - 

 Dry Shoes
