Not liking this!

My fucking house is over-run with cockroaches tonight. I'm not a fan of creepy crawlies and I get that weird shuddering thing going on when I see one. Should one get too close, the shuddering progresses to a jumping, flapping and frantic rubbing of the hair. It's not the most masculine manoeuvre, I'll grant you that.

They seem to be massing in the bathroom but their plan is literally going tits up because they keep landing on their backs. Why has this species (that is supposedly the most resilient on Earth) not figured out a way to get up off its back?

Suits me, the ugly bastards.

The great Arse About Fez fortune telling experiment

I've mentioned before that reading the coffee grinds is a traditional Turkish way of telling someone's fortune; well I had a thought about I put up pictures of my coffee grinds and invite the internet to tell me my fortune? Then, I'll compare the notes and see if there are any similarities. By the end of this experiment, we should know without doubt whether or not fortune telling is real or shit.

So here's the deal. Below are a series of shots of my coffee cup today. Have a look and then please email your reading to (please don't post your reading as a comment or you'll fuck everything up and give others ideas). Once I get a serious quantity back, I'll share my notes.

....then all we have to do is to wait to see whether it all comes true.

BTW click on the pictures for a bigger version.

I am but a child at heart...

...and that's why things like this make me laugh when the kids are doing a listening exercise.

Is it just me...

...or does this peach have a frenulum?

Things I'd never done before moving to Turkey #4

Tried to coax a dog down from the roof of a car.
