I can feel the little virus battalians mobilising for total warfare. The only good thing about it is that Mother doesn't want me anywhere near her. A shame I feel too crook to enjoy the freedom.
Lemonade icy-poles win over Vinegar and Salt crisps any day.

I spent the day in bed after I staggered to the shop for the above goodies. I loved lying there with the sun shining in, books to hand, snot to my chin and bits of lung being hacked up. (anybody eating?) Lemonade icy-poles really help.

So I'm reading an article about locust swarms and why they swarm. Scientists have determined that the locusts in the lead aren't hungry, they're the ones who are well fed on protein and salt. It's the ones behind who aren't getting the food. They're hot for the fat bodies in front and the fat bodies have to start moving fast before they become the food for the hungries behind and so the swarming begins.

All the time I was reading that and looking at the locust feeding on another locust, I could picture Brendan the Brave twirling his little antennae hoping to outrun Malcolm the Mighty who is trying to keep ahead of Costello the Cunning. The swarming of the Federal Liberal Party should make a ripper of a horror movie.

"I can feel the little virus battalians mobilising for total warfare."'ve been watching the opening ceremony at the Bejing Olympics then.

Not watching it, going to watch Star Wars after I delete spam crap.
I'm being un-patriotic and not watching one event over the whole time.
How much is Pomland in debt already over the damn 2012 games not that you have to worry. That's the date New Agers reckon the Mayan Calendar signals the end of the world. I just hope it's the end of the Olympics.

No idea. As far as I'm aware the bill's being footed by the cockneys...which suits me fine.

FB watched the opening ceremony and suitably ohhed and ahhed at it.
I kept hiding on the net and outside, in the rain, for a ciggie ;)

Hope you're feeling better soon, J!

Hi Jahteh

You make feeling ill sound so romantic. To think I've been avoiding it this whole time.

Brendan the Boofhead
Malcolm the Mongrel
and Costello the Creep ?

I'm with you on the not watching the Olympics. I don't care how good they think they are at hosting the games, they still suck.

Ozfemme said...

Oh and I hope you get better soon.

Very descriptive. Perhaps a little too.....

Can't claim Locust status - though my ancient molecules may well be carried by them ..

Can, as a current sentient human being - only wish you Love and well being .. heh

JahTeh said...

Thanks Davo, I'm needing a lot of wellbeing.

Bella, it gets worse. Kudos to you when you're crook but still look after the kids.

Nice one, Annie, have you noticed Brendan's eyes are disappearing?

Pants, don't get sick, it's over-rated, believe me.

Jayne, even the thought of smoking with this dodgy lung is making it worse.
