Interstellar Leaps

Confusing title, I know.
But not any less than what's going on right now!
I will try to keep it short for you though and give it my best shot!
I've neglected this blog in someway, I admit that much!
And I say "this" Blog because I've been recently blogging in my new blog.
So I've been swapping back and forth lately and that's what I'll probably be doing from now on.
You can catch up with me anytime though provided of course you understand the language.
For all of my friends from abroad and all of the english speaking visitors, please bare with me!
I will however try to give you a juicy and satisfying update of my hectic last weeks in the days to come followed by a short break while I'm away on vacation, and then back again.
Now now, don't be nonchalant about it, I still have a little something for you in this post.
Here are few snapshots from my short break in Mykonos island this last weekend especially for you.
TC to all

I've always said that as long as we have dreams to follow, we are healthy and alive.
It's never too late to pursue any dream of ours whatsoever regardless our age or any other obstacle that may arise. The sky's the limit and as a wise friend of mine once said, the only reason obstacles exist is because they are to be surpassed. And I strongly believe that the future is only what we make of it. Here's one of my favorite poems by none other than the world renowned Greek poet Constantine P. Cavafy

Body, Remember . . .

Body remember, not only how much you were loved,
not only the beds on which you lay,
but also those desires for you
that glowed plainly in the eyes,
and trembled in the voice - and some
chance obstacle made futile.
Now that all of them belong to the past,
it almost seems as if you had yielded
to those desires - how they glowed,
remember, in the eyes gazing at you;
how they trembled in the voice, for you, remember, body.

C.P. Cavafy

Friday the 12th

Everyone talks about the ominous Friday the 13th but has anyone spoken of Friday the 12th?
Call me superstitious if you’d like but here’s a recap of my day so far:

1. Spilled my morning coffee 5 minutes before I leave the house for work
2. Miss my bus
3. Wait for the next one only to realize that I don’t have my tickets with me (and nowhere around to buy any)
4. Get’s in a taxi with a new driver which was driving under the speed limits
5. Late for work
6. Three phone calls on hold while computer is locked for maintenance by the IT dpt.
7. Third phone call was about a marble plate that (with the help of the cleaning lady of the upper floor of my house) chipped off the balcony and fell right in the center of my parked car’s back window shattering it to pieces!
8. Trying to find a garage that’s is open after working hours so that I would have the time to go after work, or even tomorrow.. but NO, “Sir, we are really sorry but tomorrow is Saturday”.. what did I expect?
9. Fighting with the taxi driver upon my return drive home as he insists to take a longer path and trying to convince me that my proposed route is much longer. Result: stuck on traffic..
10. Back home and first raindrops start to threaten my now open hood car! (which I got to cover right on time before the first rainfall since last winter!!)

Luckily.. yes I did say “luckily”, somewhere among those 10 points, I got a rather nice surprise today, which more or less made up and erased anything negative..
Big thank you to that nice surprise for making me smile!

Saturday's prelude to autumn

Aren’t Saturdays supposed to be part of the weekend? Isn’t the weekend supposed to be part of a 2 day break to help us rest after a hectic 5 day workweek?
So why is it I’m working today?
Ok no whining, I promise.. it’s just that I didn’t get to do my favourite Saturday morning hobby (staying in bed) and I guess I’m a little cranky considering that the weather made it ideal for such an activity as it was a true prelude to autumn.

Partly cloudy skies, a significant drop in temperature and the smell of the autumn breeze.. an ideal morning indeed.

I’m sure you’ll agree that it has been a very long and intense summer this year, although it’s still uncertain whether it’s going to let us go so easily.

For all I know we could have another heat wave waiting around the corner…

Let’s hope not, bearing in mind that we’ve had enough heat this year (heat waves, wildfires, drought) and the signs are stronger than ever.

Global warming is threatening us with no mercy and instead of doing something about it, we are making it even worse by helping it evolve in a WMD.
Yes, a weapon of massive destruction.
And in case you’ve been brainwashed by imperialistic nonsense and linked this term to war, let me just tell you that this weapon isn’t about Iraq or Kosovo or any other havocked territory, it is about earth... and its power can cause immeasurable damage to this planet.
What worries me most though, is the ignorance and lack of interest by many of us…

Anyway, I wish I had more time to write more but I will have to dedicate another post to this important subject some other time as I still need to get some work done before my day is over.
For the time being, all my best for this weekend!

From Germany to Australia??

Ok, i don't usually do this, but I found a couple of articles that are really worth sharing :-) I won't say more, I will let the articles do the talking...

Man hides sex toys in the wurst way...

BERLIN (Reuters) - Staff at a German butcher's shop were shocked to discover a customer had hidden two sex toys in their sausages for transport to Dubai, police said Wednesday.

"It was two latex dildos with a natural look," said a spokesman for police in the southwestern city of Mannheim.

After shopping there earlier in the day, the man, who spoke broken English, returned to the butcher's with two large "Schwartenmagen" sausages. He asked a shop assistant to wrap and cool them until he departed for Dubai the next day.

But the assistant noticed the goods had got heavier and alerted police. Officers discovered the man, who was about 50, had removed some of the meat and packed the dildos inside.

"He could have used a loaf of bread," the spokesman said. "It's not against the law here. But obviously I can't speculate on what customs in Dubai will have to say about it."

He used WHAT?

SYDNEY (Reuters) - It was a stick up of a different kind for one Australian burglar, who broke into a neighbor's house and played sex games in the bathroom with a bottle of toilet detergent and a vacuum cleaner.

A court in the northern city of Brisbane heard how 27 year old Jamie Lacey, high on drugs, broke into the house in September 2004, scattering pornographic magazines around the bathroom and making a sex toy from a bottle of detergent, a piece of wood and a rubber glove, the Brisbane Times reported.

Lacey was arrested in December 2006 after police matched DNA his DNA to that on the rubber glove, according to the Australian Associated Press.

A vacuum cleaner was also found in the bathroom, but the judge dismissed a defense submission that there was no proof the vacuum has been used for sexual purposes.

"I'm sure that your client didn't hoover the carpets," the newspaper and AAP quoted judge Tony Rafter as saying.

Lacey was sentenced to 12 months community service, with judge declining to send him to jail since he had held a steady job for two years and was now a father.
