es, and with a breakfast double sausage and egg muffin it sets me up well for any jobs when I'm working out of town, even better if it is a long drive so I can have a nap and shut my eyes in the passenger seat.


That sounds like the easy life.

Here's a coffeehouse chill track to listen to unconsciously, during that nap.

Sounds like my world minus the pistols, we aren't legally allowed to play with them.
Go on though tell me you have rattlesnakes cactus and tumbleweed yeh?!
Rattlesnakes and cactus, yeah. It's not tumbleweed country. Lots of rocky hills and lush vegetation.

Loving the tunes thanks

It shall be downloaded and in my ear buds during tomorrow's journey to work as I snooze.
I've recently been banned from driving by my doctor due to a blackout condition I have. I'm on some magic drug which keeps me stable enough to work but I would be a risk to other people's lives if I drove. I actually banned myself months ago anyway but it is official now.
It's fantastic though in as much as I get driven around now with my perfect excuse to never take turns, so I get an extra hour shut-eye on the way to jobs haha!

Sound amazing, except the rattlers of course lol
Do you have mountain bears and coyotes etc? Loads of dangerous animals in your world, nothing like that here in my parts.
One snake which is venomous but will only make an adult sick. I've only ever seen 2 in my life though, beautiful little things, but really rare to find.

But spiders and snakes are beautiful, and scorpions too, specially! They can silently walk around you, and crawl through your clothes and into your tummy then into your neck and then into your hands, and then when you try to throw them away while half asleep they sting in your hand and run away laughing, how can you don't love them poor things?

Awwwww

So good weekend then

I've had a good working week so far...

That spider in the eyes pic was horrible haha, and yep I'm glad we don't have stingy bitey things in Britain!
The cartoon strip made me chuckle, I can identify with a few.

I finished early today, paddled my feet in the sea after, now I'm switching between ATS and watching stupid stuff on youtube.

Cornish - But we do have stingy bity things here, granted - not on the scale of places like Australia where practically everything will kill you. Horseflies, hornets and round here the dreaded Blandford Fly. And ants.

Went night fishing a while back and took a can of condensed milk for tea making. Early hours, fancied a brew so made one, poured in condensed milk. Tin was full of red ants which I did not notice and when I took a sip of tea so was my mouth. Very painful, I can tell you.

Wasps in numbers are bad news too, especially when they've got the right hump with you. Fishing again, set up gear including screwing bivvy pole into a handily located hole in ground. Bailiff came round and warned me I was on a wasp's nest. I thought he was being a wuss as there was no sign of any wasps.

Apparently, they come back to their nest in the evening, which they did. A lot of them. Seems handy hole in ground was entrance to nest.

Wasps very angry buzzing about going "Some bastard's stuck a ruddy great pole in our nest, GRRRRR" which soon changed to "Hang on, THAT bastard's stuck a ruddy great pole in our nest GET HIM!" which was when things turned ugly. I still have some scars from the bites.

BoneSay - loved the cartoons, glad you are back.

Haha that was a mad story!

I've enjoyed the great outdoors all my life and I've only ever been stung by anything once, a wasp when I was about 8.
I wouldn't want scorpions running around like BoneSay has, don't get me wrong I love travelling and I've seen my share of snakes and big spiders in jungles or whatever, but it's nice doing without such beasties in Britain.
When you get a chance check this out, small beasty world is brutal, listen to the commentary to the end, it made me cringe how it turns out for the loser...

That was gruesome! I had my money on the spider.

Speaking of which we do have a lot of False Widows here which have a nasty bite.

I've seen their webs when working in old basements or attics and stay well clear.
I like regular spiders though, my house has loads, they're amazing creatures. I had one for a couple of years lived in a web she'd built in the opening of my roof skylight window, even adapted it so I could open and close it and her web stayed intact.
She caught loads of flies coming in, I liked watching her make her strike.
One day I opened the skylight and a zillion baby spiders fell onto my head. I brushed them off as carefully as I could but kept saying sorry, sorry, because I knew I was killing some.
She hatched another load the following year.

Not keen on spiders. Someone once told me that when you find a dried up spider husk in your shed its not dead - its just grown bigger and shed its skin. Had two in an old potting shed that were huge. When I opened the door they would run over and stare at you like "This is our shed - sod off".

Haha, imagine if spiders were the size of dogs they'd rule the world!
My best mate teaches marshal arts and he is well scared of spiders, I'm scared of heights, even this video gets my heart racing and sweaty palms...

So as i was saying some time ago, "beasts from hell", now i won't be able to sleep thinking i may get eating from the inside out


It's been 10 years since that thing sting me but i still can't get over it, every time i feel something crawling or similar i jump from bed like crazy ha ha. This one time my hair got lose when i turned and i could feel the ends on my hand, i thought it was sometimes else and jumped out of bed and it was nothing at all ha ha, i need to go get my brain checked lmao

I also watched a video where a wasp kills a rodent, it is difficult to watch, could not get to the end


The marine video is crazy, i don't think the guy has that much resolve, he's just paralyzed in fear lmfao

Here's another song by Crystal Castles, i am liking this band a lot the past days




I missed the chance to get the pasties, as i went out i did not get to buy any of the stuff or tell the lady, it will have to wait, and you may not believe but i have not found any local place that makes them or has similar food, but every other block i find a Sushi or China food place lol :/

I even found Tai, and Italian among other things, but nothing like what you have posted and it bothers me, even French and Argentina restaurants, honestly it was kind of meh, i want to have a breakfast that sends me to the hospital but people refuse to provide lmao

Got some Mexican candy as a small gift, yay!

These are "borrachitos", i'm not sure how to translate ha ha, i guess it would be "drunkies" or something, it is fruit flavored candy with a very small touch of Tequila in the center, they taste like heaven. There's also a Mazapan, peanut candy and it tastes so nice too





Life is so short....
