Sunday Desperate

Nothing written for today to post but I can fall back on cloud photos and a few words.




Still playing with words, last night with a dinner out with new friends and old in the ever so posh Bay Street Brighton but had a cheap meal, Chapel Street Bazaar was mentioned. Later I thought, how bizarre is the bazaar. 

Should I seek legal advice from my barista? Maybe if he or she is a law student. Otherwise I might need a barrister. It is all about empharseis on the syllables when the word is spoken. Would young people know what a syllable is?

Oh Jesus, I hope he is not another god botherer Fijian football player, but no matter. What a fabulous alliterative name has Aussie Rules player Nic Naitanui. His name is poetry to my ears.

  1. American Insularity Confession Time: I have such a stereotyped view of Australia that I actually was surprised to see clouds. I thought it was nothing but endless days.

    1. Good morning to you Lee. I feel like saying stay in bed and cuddle in with your cats, but it is probably not cold like it is here.

    2. It's been pretty nippy up here these past couple of mornings, Andrew...and I've lingered long in bed with the paper and my two furry mates. It was down to around 1C, give or take since Friday morning. The days are glorious.

      I prefer the cooler weather to the heat and humidity of summer.

    3. Ok, that is colder than here. I think the human brain functions better in cooler temperatures.

  3. Definitely a wonderful name. I like his dreads too, though I always wonder whether they are a pain to sleep on.
    Love your clouds and will slink away in shame next time I post them on my blog.

    1. EC, Firefighting Nephew once had dreads and he never complained about them being painful to sleep on. Not at all. I love your cloud photos.

  4. I love the way some of you Aussie and the words you use It so informative. Any how for an Aussie we call Hick or Hillybilly. And the term barista for me is someone who service coffee.
    Coffee is on

    1. Dora, I suppose everywhere has their own special words. Of course we know hick and hillbilly, Hicksville even. We were glued to the tv watching Beverly Hillbillies.

  5. As a student, I had a friend called Linda Lee. It was an unforgettable name. Another from student days was Trentham DeLeliva. Wonderful. I could go on...

  7. The clouds don't look very friendly ! I don't see or hear the difference between Aussi English and English, only the Americans have a very different accent ! My teacher used to say they have a potato in their mouth !

    1. Gattina, we have lots of clouds of times, that deliver no rain at all. We used to say about posh English speakers that they spoke with a plum in mouth. Spoken Aussie English is quite different to English as spoken in any part of England, and we have different regional accents here too.

  10. Your word play is very funny this morning. Maybe you wrote it dead of night, but I'm reading it here in the morning, as the sun breaks over the neighbors houses to my east. Yes, sun finally, last two days.
