This Is Spinal Crap

I took the week off, so I've been working my ass off at home. New DIY projects await me; 2008 has already started a month ago, so high time to get in gear. But before I can start breaking down walls and ceilings, I need a bit of space to work.

Belgicum

I joined a group of bloggers/photo-enthusiasts yesterday to visit a photo exhibition by Stephan Vanfleteren. 'Yes', you say, 'isn't that the famous photographer with his pictures of the dark, grimy, smelly, impoverished underside of Belgium?' And you're totally correct, dear readers. It's such a pleasure to know that my readership is entirely composed of the upper strata of intellectuals all around the globe.

No Comment

Keith warned me that my comments disappear and reappear at random. I checked it out at Haloscan, and I can't find anything wrong apart from a message that it was more than three months ago since I last logged in (yup, that's me) and that they'd archived my comments. Maybe it's that, anyways it seems to be functioning now and your comments have not been deleted, least of all by me.

Heating Up

After two winters in our new house with only one (electric) stove, we’re getting fed up with freezing up while we work on our computers, turning into giant ice cubes when we take a shower and waking up only to find that our blankets are covered in ripe. Two weeks ago we went to a building fair to look around for prices of different types of heating systems. We definitely want to get rid of our accumulators (we have two, but we only use one) because of the truck loads of money we have to ship each month to the electricity company.

Bon Au Beau

At the moment, my life is utterly boring. Apart from going to work, working, coming back from work and thinking about work, nothing much is happening. So why not reflect on happier times when I roamed freely through the Congolese Jungle and discovered this tribe of apemen. Allright, they weren't ape-men and they weren't living freely in the jungle either - not yet. So here are the promised pictures of our distant cousins, the Bonobos, in the Bonobo political asylum of Lola Ya Bonobo west of Kinshasa.

Moving Up

It seems just a blink of an eye ago that we held this little fragile mini-baby in our hands. Our Wolfy is growing fast and learning new tricks, such as:

  • Sitting up on his own (and licking cows).

  • Eating bread - or rather, turning it into a mushy ball of slime that he can spit out if he has enough. On the other hand, he'd eat the whole bread if you would let him.

Bart Awards

Wouldn't you know, I'm nominated for the Belgian blog awards, or Bwards. I thought the 'b' stood for Bart, but then I found it referred to my fatherland, which is also nice.

A Man And His Shed

When we were looking for a new house, I made sure there was a shed in the garden. Because what is a man without a shed? Nothing, I tell you.

The shed is my exclusive domain. There's practically nothing there that belongs to Mrs.B, apart from some garden equipment and pots and fertiliser and things. It is stuffed with all things male, such as power tools and big pieces of lumber and testosterone.

Wireless

We have a wireless network at home. That's not really astonishing news, but it is supposed to be a wired network. I went at great lengths to pull cables throughout our house, drilling holes in walls and floors, fixing wires in the wall or underneath the stairs, trying to hide everything as much as possible.

Happy 2008

Happy New Year, from little Wolf, Mrs.B. and myself of course! May your bank dump all its black money by accident on your account. May your sex life be filled with multi-orgasmic experiences. May your health remain excellent, despite the many multi-orgasmic experiences and the laden bank account that allows you to buy five tons of chocolates a day. May your inner beauty shine through and may your outer beauty make your friends jealous as hell. And may your colossal New Year's hang over fade away in a day or three.
