Roughly in life...J. Hardspear de la Azotea’s current obsessions

Work... My current project ends in a month. I have sent my CV out, I have irons in the fire, my time on this project may get extended, I may patent a product and sell the manufacturing rights to Nabisco/Frito-Lay/NASA/UNILEVER/The Government of San Marino, OR...my blog may become super popular overnight and I can switch Google Ads on again and make tons.

Lady Gaga. Saw her on Oprah the other day. Realized her closet-personality is actually a NERD! Bought the Fame Monster CD yesterday (didn’t tell Lamb), listened to both CDs with headphones on my PC 3x today already.

Rain. Wish it would come now – looked super promising yesterday

My weight. Bought USN Phedra Cut XT yesterday (didn’t tell Lamb)

My Finances. The lack thereof exacerbated by my excessive frittering away of money.

SANRAL. GFIP to be completed over the next 5 millennia.

My Blogging Stats. (Will do a separate post on that one)

Lamb. We’ve been having a number of ups-and-downs lately but lately more ups.

Janis Joplin. Oh Lord won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz. See YouTube below for coolest clip you have ever seen. WHY DID SHE HAVE TO DIE?

Baconaise – Blogged about it before – Now available in SA from P’nP Hyper. Sinfully delicious.

Lamb. Worried about her health. She went to see a Iridologist / Naturopath – seems to get slowly better (Chronic fatigue, horse voice a.o.)

Science Fiction. I promise you, I really have 1000 sci-fi books on my Kindle. Currently reading Ringworld by Larry Niven. He wrote it in 1970 – won the Hugo, Nebula and Locus (3 biggest SF awards).

Image. Cuter than ever. Talks, strong-willed, lovable, her 2nd birthday is coming up early November.

Dad. Seems to be doing well. Bought a new car.

Sister Honey Bee. Health has improved.

Paula Deen. Her Lasagne Sandwich

My friends. Guilt...I am neglecting them...

eMalahleni. Formerly known as Witbank. Going there Thursday & Friday.

Soda Water. With lotsa ice and slice of lemon. Can drink tons.  Or is it kilo-litres?

Amatomu. What happened to it?

Sport. Infidelity, match fixing, suicide attempts, politicians interfering, illegal substances.

Muscle Cars. I want a Chev SS like my Grandfather had. Yellow with a black roof and double black stripes on the bonnet and boot. The sound of that engine is enough to make me hard.

Stimulants. Ritalin. They used to give it to American Troops in the Vietnam War to combat battle fatigue.

Summer. Balmy evenings, the delicious smell of Syringa Tree blooms (atichoooooo!). Sound of impulse sprayers wetting countless lawns, braai fires.

Heidi, Pinocchio & Nemo. Image’s current favourite DVDs.

The Dutch. My funny colleague. The funniest ever, EVER video clip on YouTube.

Afrigator. Why is it so damn slow

Twitter. 1 Tweet per day diet.

Amazon Kindle. Lamb currently annexed mine.

Kathy Reichs. Bones to Ashes. Reading physical copy since Lamb has spread like a fungus all over my Kindle. I still read paper books. Got nothing against them.

Sheebee. She knelt on her Amazon Kindle DS. Wonder how she managed that. Wonder if it can be repaired.

BlackBerry PlayBook. The Apple iPad has competition. The Amazon Kindle is NOT competition. eBook Readers are not to be confused with Tablet PC devices!

Zombie. What’s in your head, in your head?

I'm sorry to hear about the job & finance thingum. I'm just like you -I spend money frantically when I know I don't have any. It's like I keep thinking that the Universe will just grow money trees in my backyard later when I need it. It has yet to happen.

I'm so sad about my Kindle!!!!

Amatomu, I gave up trying to understand what happened there.

Doesn't ephedra pills wreak havoc on the heart?

Blackberry Playbook looks awesome.

All my sympathy

Oh shit...

Tamara said...

Kathy Reichs is good stuff. I will always opt for paper books (I spend too much time with a screen as is, I don't need to be heading to bed with one).

Hardspear said...

Tamara... yeah that is what Lamb also said about the Kindle - now I have to pry it out of her clutches if I want to read something.

I have just caught up on a whole lot of your blog posts. I am so sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. Deepest condolences to you and your family.

I loved this post. Awesome updates. And I also went to go and buy the Fame Monster the day after that Oprah show. I am listening to it non - stop. Lady Gaga is brilliant and she totally fascinates me.
