Sayonara El Papa

I just caught the beginning of a news story about today being the Pope's last day and I heard the words, '...the mood was festive. Nun and monks were gathered...'

And it just made me smile - I've never associated 'nuns and monks' and 'festive'.

But then maybe my stereotypes are just all sorts of wrong...?

I had a very busy time last night. I dreamt I went to the moon - twice - and  on one trip my father also came. I was about to go on a third trip but my head gear was a bit faulty. It was a relatively easy trip and lots of fun. There's a lot to be said for no gravity. 

And then I did a massive skydive somewhere in the States - the view was stunning - as I recall, it was from a very high altitude.

Busy, busy, busy.

I wonder how the dream people would interpret that?

That I should stop eating cheese at night?

I know this is cruel...

..particularly if you live in the Northern Hemisphere but, I (sort of) hate to be a Little Miss Gloaty Pants, our cracking good summer just keeps on giving. 

I hate to jinx it but, bite me, this weather is stunning.

Dogs Versus Cats

Sweet mother of God, I nearly choked when I watched this.

Happy Friday.

It's Awkward Family Photo Time

And as another glorious summer's day come to a close I think it only appropriate that I bring you some pictures courtesy of Awkward Family Photo and the eighties. 

I mean, who could resist this shot that I shall call Brothers? I'm picking Youngest inherited Oldest's braces. I'm also quite fond of the hand-me-down haircuts. 

 Do you reckon these guys are off to an Adams Family party?
 And I know I'm a bit late for the Valentine's Day party, but just to celebrate what an absolute croc of commercialism I think the day we go.
I mean, there's nothing that says 'I love you' like a cross bow.

Wise Words

Vehicle Inspectors - the guys who look at cars that have been in serious car accidents. Here is some advice I heard from of one of them recently:

'Only ever have unsecured stuff in your car that you'd be happy with me throwing at your head. Cause when shit happens, that's what coming at you.'

I'm taking that advice and running with it.

How to appreciate your morning in forty seconds...

My sister sent me this.

It made me laugh.

The end.
