Lazy bones, sleeping in the sun...

I had loads of stuff I wanted to do this weekend, and there are no prizes for guessing how much of it I actually got done.

Manana banana... always manana.... never do today what you can put off until tomorrow!!

I sometimes amaze myself with the level of apathy I am capable of.

See yesterday's post for full details.... exactly!! There wasn't one!!

I resolve to be on best behaviour tis week, and to be more productive.

One thing I HAVE done this weekend is watched a lot of films....

Starsky and Hutch
Pulp Fiction
Big trouble in little China

... to name but a few (the ones I immediately remember)

I totally enjoyed Starsky and Hutch... I thought it was very true to the orignial series, but managed to take a few key memorable moments from the series and put its own twist on them. Quite cleverly done really.

I might have an early night tonight and start watching some Eerie Indiana episodes.

I DID rake the leaves off the lawn at one point... a splendid job, well done!

I also tried out my tripod, and managed to achieve one photograph that I have been unable to achieve before. I've always loved ferns. We have a lot of ferens in the garden, it's all a bit woddland glade style. The very fractal nature of ferns and their fronds, is one of life's miracles in my book. I have wanted a nice close-up, but the stupid autofocus never quite works right or it's too shaky. Well here it is. Enjoy.

Well, this After Eight ice cream isn't going to eat itself... time for me to get my act together and think about the impending sense of Monday morning that's about to wash over me!!

Have a great day muchachos... be good, and if you can't be good, be careful!!

Cool thing for today:

Sorry Ahm, I stole this from you.


  1. You've done well with the fern, good out of focus background and showing some nice 'bokeh' as our Japanese friends call the diffused areas.

    Great photo awards site, I love the one titled 'worship' in the action section. Not too keen on the winners in people, though. Wouldn't it be nice to have your own electron microscope?

    Beer would be fine sometime soon - pick your preferred time.

  2. Have had a similar weekend hunmas ever a dining room like a chinese laundry lol but there are just so many more interesting things to do than housework.......
    Anyway off to get those vitamins Father Fox,young padawan is heeding her masters advice...

  3. How do you get the photo and text to line up like that???!!! I tried and my ignorance won out. Nice pic...that's the level of photography I aspire to!

  4. A relaxing weekend without getting off my tuff is what I aspire too... Long gone are those days. I am happy if I can fit one whole movie in that I don't have to pause to answer a child's call...

    I also love ferns. I have some potted ones in my house, but they have caught a nasty fungus from some idiot(me) overwatering them. I am trying to nurse them back to health, but they don't look like they are going to pull through... any suggestions?

  5. When I saw the subject of this entry on a fellow blogger's site, I thought of you, for two reasons: It reminded me of the Random Shopping and because it started out as photography. Yuan has a romantic sense of humor. Talk to you later... Jen!1paMWjWkMevsMrx4ekOPKU6A!1335.entry

  6. Hey there, FoXy. You and Shawn share a very manly distaste for spiders. He recently heard of Camel Spiders (Google it if you are not familiar). I have more of a "Charlotte's Web" mentality towards them, but these monstrosities even freak me out. Have fun! Watch the videos of the Camel spider eating the lizzard, they show up right away when you google it.

  7. hey...
    i like your language use to this blog...manana...muchachos...
    does this have something to do with the films you watched???

    fox was working??? you're welcome to rake in my garden too!!!
