There has been Soweto:

And Cape Town:

And Safari:

And all sorts of general havoc, mayhem and chaos that only four Finns and one Viking can possibly wreak, but finally, albeit very sadly, the first set of guests is on their way back to Europe.

Although no thanks to Iberia, who bring new meaning to the words 'customer disservice'. And 'blow'. And 'suck'. And 'incompetent'. And 'rude'. And 'clueless'. And apparently also 'endless list'. They make me wish I mattered. Thanks a lot Iberia!

And as for me, you ask?


I'm having a pile up. Of people, to-dos, assignments, laundry, places, things, trash, mails, calls, jobs, and everything and anything imaginable. But mostly good stuff.

The real world is stealing me away. And not only from you and your blogs, but also from sleep which is resulting in some seriously suspect encounters, to-dos, arrivals and departures, answers, calls, performances, photos, some inadvertent public nose-excavations, and a lot of yelling at Iberia. And possibly at someone who had absolutely nothing to do with Iberia, but may have just been passing by.

And for once I have to just stick to coffee.

Seriously, the unimaginable has happened: I have no time even for wine.

I might as well just quit right now. But I can't. I'm too EXCITED!

Perfectly crytic and weird enough! Soon there will be wine again!

Cyndy said...

Missing you, but knowing full well that while you are busy, you are gathering much fodder for thought...

And that first glass (scratch that, read bottle) of wine? It should be a doozy!

Fidgeting Gidget said...

We've missed you out here in the blogosphere!

You? Not drinking wine? WTF?

B said...

It sounds exciting! It must be, if you're not drinking wine anymore! :)

As a Spanish representative, I feel I must apologize for Iberia! If it's any consolation, I've been there!

wow...i must be really high, i mean like really really high, or super drunk, or something. yet oddly I don't feel funny and i'm not seeing two or more of things there should only be one of.

i could have sworn i read that you don't have time for wine. hmmm, i wonder what kind of mushrooms i had on my sandwich? That is knee slappin' funny.

Good to hear from you - seems like you've been gone a long time.

Myne Whitman said...

That got me laughing, what's happening?

Bored Housewife said...

Its not about the time you have, its about the time you make, and you can always make time for wine. Always. I'm making time for it right now.
