Fridays rock

This is why it's cool to be me... it only takes two savanahs to get tipsy. Even less when I'm fit, or if I've just donated blood. Sometimes I have a binge and I can handle anything up to five!

A two hour lunch on a Friday also helps.

On the walk back from Mimmos (all two hundred metres) I managed to trip myself on the pavement and stumble down a set of stairs. And then I got the giggles. All after I decided to share as many dodgy stories from my Rhodes days as possible to the wide-eyed amusement of a stranger/colleague.

Drinks = R25
Entertainment = unlimited.

Thanks Champagne Heathen for this delight:

NEW YORK, NY - A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a problem for us," Gonzales said. "They desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as ' unknowns', but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are three sides to every triangle'."

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes."

White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the president.
