Not so terrible, but Monday sucked.
Got home from work found my boat full of footprints. My guess is thieves are casing the joint out. So we went and got some items to secure the boat better, and when I got home, although the Sun had set, it was still light on our street. Turns out that also yesterday they put not one but two street lights are tiny cul de sac. Now our bedroom is filled with light all night. Below is a pic of the two new lights.
Also last night, I got food poisoning. Last time (time before last, now) we went to my new favorite restaurant, I saw a plate that looked really good. It was about eight medallions of meat and it looked delicious. I told the waitress that I wanted to try it next time.
So, last night, I ordered it. It didn’t look the same It was nasty. Now I feel like my stomach is full of molten lead.
I’m taking my first ever sick day from work.
Monday, Blah Blah Blah-Blah, that song is playing in my head again.
Here is a picture post for your Monday.
US Airways, comin’ in
I don’t know the name of this fish, penis fish?
Same fish, different angle.
Upside down goldfish. Usually you see one or two, with a school of a different type. But these were all together, in a crack in a channel where it was very surgy.
Today is Fried Day. The day to eat some fried food. Happy Fried Day!
50 years ago John F Kennedy was killed. I was three years old but I think I remember it. I remember my parents were upset about something. Something big. Like a war. I can’t really express the memory on paper.
I am looking forward to the weekend. If my boss asks me to work extra time I’m going to say no. I halfway expect him to. No!
When I was little, like 3 years old I guess, I thought dogs were male and cats were female. I thought horses were female and cows were male. I thought the hood ornament on a car was to help the driver aim, and wondered why it was in the middle, not in front of the driver.
In kindergarten, I met a kid who thought the blue in the sky was the clouds, and the white was clear sky.
In third grade, my best friend told me, seriously, that he invented the word diarrhea. Actually, I can’t remember if it was the word or if he claimed to invent diarrhea itself.
I may come back and add to this list later.
This is in about 6 inches of water, sand at the bottom, surface reflection at the top, and minnows in the middle.
Yesterday there were needlefish everywhere. This is one of several shots I took.
Yesterday Lunchtime Photos
It is a Tuesday. I don’t have much to say today. My computer still tied up. Converting MKVs ti .AVIs. I haven’t checked my email since Thursday apparently.
Hawk the rooster has disappeared. He’s been missing for about three days. I think another big rooster killed him. Now there’s just Pearl.
You’ve read about how I”d like to eliminate Microsoft from my life, I seldom use my laptop any more. Of course, I use Microsoft all over the place at work, but there’s not much I can do about that.
Anyway, my little-used laptop seems to have suddenly slowed down to a crawl. Lately, I use it mostly to convert movie files from .mkv and .mp4 to .avi. I used to be able to do about 10 45 minute programs in about 4 hours, but for the past two days, it’s been much much slower, like one 45 minute program in two hours.
And I notice this slowness elsewhere with this computer. I think It’s time for a new laptop…. Mine is ancient.
It was a good weekend. Saturday beach, Sunday boat. I felt much more inexperienced Sunday than I felt last time I went out on the boat.
Now it’s Monday, and I think tomorrow is payday!
Have ye a good week.
You’ve heard my Friday song:
Yeay! It’s Fri Hiiii Day!
The Weekend’s Here!
We’ll relax (hallelujah! hallelujah!)
And take off our slacks (hallelujah! Hallelujah! )
And sit aroind the house in our rotten underwear!
Well, I didn’t write that song. It’s from a radio dj in the 90′s.
Soooooo I’ve been working on an original song. It’s not finished but it starts like this:
The week is gone!
Shift ‘er out of gear.
And that’s all I have so far. But I’m working on it.
Have a good weekend! !!
Last night the wife and I went to the Ninth Annual Cayman Islands Tourism Association International Underwater Film Festival. At the end they announced with a happy happy video that it was the last Cayman Islands Underwater Film Festival. In 2015 it would be a different, new kind of film festival. Oh, but don’t worry, there will still be an underwater “section”.
In other words, CITA sold out on the International Underwater Film Festival, giving it to Camana Bay and Dart corporation. No doubt Dart Corporation intends to take the Underwater Film Festival and turn it into a “proppa” film festival.
The video advertisement/announcement showed movie stars and red carpets.
In 2015 I anticipate a black tie, trendy, snooty event that few can afford or desire to attend.
Bad for Caymanians, bad for divers, probably bad for tourism. Good for Dart corporation.
Sugar coated shit.
