Those Fat Little Politician Guys

…just so they don’t completely disappear into the waves…

…are being celebrated here at Boredinarecordshop…

…being celebrated in fine style with the “piece” that has had me prevaricating all week…

…for anyone who unfollows in disgust, I can be quoted as saying “It seemed like a good idea at the time”…

…enjoy – if you don’t enjoy, don’t judge…

…wow, you made it this far… I wasn’t sure you’d join me here…

…er… it has been my experience that 4 out of 5 people read “Fatc**t” as “Fatcat”…

…it isn’t…

…still with me?

…picture if you will the “artist” in is 6th week of smoking cessation… to the concern (and amusement ) of his friends, family and peers he has become very manic in his speech and actions… he is continually thrashing around in his sketchbook working thru another set of cigarette-craving induced ideas…

… still pissed for the folk of Christchurch…. and any body caught up in natural disasters in general, as governments and local bodies, all over the globe, ¬†continue to struggle with providing what they told us they could, should the need arise….

…the best disaster preparedness, as far as I can tell, is to live along way away from all disasters.

(apologies to any one whose broadband allotment got eaten by this post… the scan I took wouldn’t go thru any other way than full blast….will try to correct tomorrow…)

….be glad when it’s out of my system and I can go back to a less frenetic schedule…

…feeling less than wordy… (pity the punters who have to deal with me in person today…)
