An Ordinary Weekend

As you may have guessed already my life revolves around getting through the week so that I can live on the weekend. But what to do when the weekend is all but ordinary yaani just bland nothing to blog write about.  Yep, you guessed it I had one those, it probably had more to do with the status of my wallet being midmonth and no plots forthcoming from my various friends.

The events of Friday may have had a part to play since I have been hosting a colleague from a neighbouring country in my house for the last 2 weeks we decided to have a polite party for him which ended up not being polite as we literally stripped the ka-local of all the decent lagers (leading brand in this part of the country is Senator-Keg which is really not an option for me!) which made me resort to my stash (sorry Betty but a couple of those bottles are missing in action). The only regret from this episode is that it caused me to imbibe a sorry cocktail or assorted liquors which without fail produced the mother of all hangovers on Sato morning. So even as I was bidding my visitor goodbye the only thought on my mind was alka seltzer. Lesson learnt is “Don’t ever mix grain and grape” but surely some lessons are meant to be forgotten.

After a few more hours of tossing and turning in bed and at the risk of overdosing on Panadol Extra I managed to drag myself down to Nairobi whereby I was unable to meetup with my pals or even watch the Rugby Worldcup game of England vs Samoa that I so wanted to watch. So an early night it was.

Sunday as usual was just travelling back to Embu and window shopping for a phone (I,m so fed up with this bloody moto). I made it to Kenol just in time to watch the ManU-Chelsea game but I will desist from rubbing it in for the Chelsea fan but I will surely miss miss the gaffa – Jose the pleasure would have been infinately more sublime if he were still the manager. That said if it was possible the Chelsea fans should put pressure for Abramovich to quit England his Mafia type of management is quite dim in my view.

Have a pleasant week! I’m pretty sure next weekend will be much better (End month in sight!) and with the Concour’s d’elegance it should be even better!

Today I’m Relaxed Finally!

After weeks of agony last night was absolute bliss.

The obnoxious bats that have been keeping me awake in the evenings have finally vacated although it had nothing to do with my desperate measures but rather we had to call in a professional exterminator – Rentokill who apparently did some voodoo which had those flying rats vacating the premises. Now that I can get my nights sleep maybe I can get back to regular blogging.

Now this post is a week too late, I had intended to do a write up on the motor show that was held 2 weekends ago but as I explained in my rant I somehow misplaced my camera cable and couldn’t download the photos but fortunately I knew someone with a SonyEricsson mobile phone which also uses the Memory Stick duo so phew!

The famous Hummer that everybody was struggling to touch but I found it abit overhyped

The Camry is one fine car that I would definately aspire to.

Subaru Tribeca, Very Popular with the masses but in my opinion not very pretty

but the girls were an added attraction

My type of car!

The show was generally a good day out but I have to rant a bit about the fact that some of the brands I was looking forward to seeing were just not there. How is it possible to have a motorshow without any BMW’s, Audi’s, Volkswagen, Range Rover, Land Rover……. Surely for that ticket price I definitely expected to at least drool at the latest Tourag or X5 but sadly that was not to be.

Now who can tell me that pretty girls in short dresses have to do with selling cars I was just wondering whether the mamasita’s draped over the Subaru Tribeca did more to attract the crowds to the Subaru stand than the car, then there were the ones in hotpants and rollerblades hawking carfreshner I bet there will be very many nice smelling cars on the roads this month.

I am still there!

Its been a while since I put up a post actually last week is the first time I have gone over a week without posting and its not that I have been on a hiatus or anything like that its just that I have been plain lazy to write up anything, I have just contented myself by going around making comments on other peeps blogs. So 3TOC no the bats didn’t consume me and apparently they are still there and are threatening to keep Baby Mama perpetually away. Since this is not a post in the true sense of the word I will go back to the drawing board and put up something later in the week. For now I leave you with a few random numbers on my mind.

  • 5 – Bottles of wine in the house 
  • 12 – an important milestone I am marking this month
  • 42 – I finally figured out the answer to EGM’s blog title.
  • 079174 – My cars odometer reading
  • – The number of fine legs I have witnessed lately

My rant of the week goes to Sony, why o why did they have to design a digital camera with a propriety cable, my old camera had a simple mini-usb connection and I could use the same cable as my phone and it was easy to share with others, now I forgot the cable at home and I am now stuck with several great photos of lovely cars I will never own that I took at the motorshow last weekend. Too bad and I though I would share. Why can’t all manufacturers use the same connector wouldn’t the world be better if all phones just used the Nokia charger and all laptops used the Toshiba Charger? (Actually I read that argument from an article on PC magazine) would save us the agony of carrying a laptop bag full of assorted comm/sync cables and chargers for all the gadgets devices we acquire in our short lifetimes
