thank the lord for clouds!

monday was spent on deck re-fitting all of the winches, eyes, loops, handles etc. It was so hot all day i came very close to burning even with my oil on. that wouldnt have been good after taking the piss out of the emmetts last week would it!!
so today, started off clear but windy and by mid morning we had cloud cover. good for me , i was on deck again all day. no sun burn, no wind burn but by evening time it was a chilly 17 degrees or so. i was goosey and nipply all at the same time. havent been like that for a while.
tonight had a call from Julia in portugal, seems the electricity board had paid a visit, i owed them 125€. after a little thought, i called her back and asked her to check the bank book.  Seems they are quite happy to collect the money on direct debit but not so happy to apply it to my account. Anyway, julia will head to lagos this week and sort it out for me – kinda makes me feel glad she took the house, could have left it in the hands of a complete gimp and been in serious trouble.
curiosity got the better of me last night – i emailled gentleman jim to see where he is in the world. heard nothing back as yet but will let you know as soon as i do.
still looking at ferry tickets, and will head to the port this weekend to see if i can get more details. when one web site quotes you less than half that the others do, you gotta wonder whats going on.
apart from that, am on countdown now, one month to go, five paydays to pass, no more rent to pay, life could be good this summer.
will have to look for a touristy job when i get home, russ got so busy he had to find someone else to fill my boots – impossible i hear you scream, i am unique………but alas it is true – maybe i can flip burgers at the cape for a few months. either way, will have more time to surf this year so will make th emost of that, certainly will make up for the drought that has been here.
on that very subject, the wind is blowing its tits off at the moment so maybe it will bring in some swell to play on ?
but i doubt it

for kade

dude, i told you the Maxter would come through.
still looking for a copy to burn but relax – she always comes through. I will contact the origin of this clip and ask direct.

just one cornetto

give it to me.
well, glad i logged on at 8pm (7uk time) dave pearce in full flow.  yes i know, i am a band width leach but i am sure the other users in the cafe wont mind a slow pc for an hour or so. Just think, two years ago, i would have been listening to this in england ironing my shirts ready for the week at work!!
ok, so here we go, been a bit sporadic this week but i will try and fill you in (not litterally of course)
the girls left this morning – i am confused. normally, in one week, i would have just one bag of waste to throw out. So, logically, if there is three of use for one week, you might expect three bags of rubbish, maybe four or even five but no………………………………..this week i have taken 9 bags of waste to the bins, i wonder how these chicks manage to consume and generate so much stuff – answers can be posted to my site but if you drop an F bomb on me, i will delete your comments (christine collier) so keep it clean and logical.
So after dropping the tarts off at the airport, i decided to clean the bathroom. Then mason rang, did i want to go to a vintage car rally? so bagged along and had a look, some real cool old stuff there including a couple of convertible bugs 1303´s, loads of old moto guzzi´s and even an old bright orange Jota in pristine condition.
when we had finished, he told me he was off wakeboarding in the afternoon – did i fancy it ?  oh yeah – never tried that before but sadly was called off at the last minute – otherwise i could have broken a leg or two.
for any of you that remember my old friend ´pecker´mason is a lot like him, with the same facial expressions and even a similar tone of voice.
been looking at my route back home, gonna be one hell of a drive.  decided to leave glorious mallorca on 1st July and drive all the way home to portugal, some 1000kms away – a good solid 10 hours.  decided against stopping in gibraltar, i just wanna ge thome to see what is happening back there and finally grab some surf.
three months out of the water will have taken its toll on me for sure.  but i will be back. my plan is to return to mallorca in november and stay for another 6 months but this time i dont think i will bother with my boards.

never trust a woman

It was many years ago since the embarrassing day when a young woman, with a baby in her arms, entered his butcher shop and confronted him with the news that the baby was his and asked what was he going to do about it? Finally he offered to provide her with free meat until the boy was 16. She agreed.

The butcher had been counting the years off on his calendar, and one day the teenager, who had been collecting the meat each week, came into the shop and said, "I’ll be 16 tomorrow."
"I know," said the butcher with a smile, "I’ve been counting too, tell your mother, when you take this parcel of meat home, that it is the last free meat she’ll get, and watch the expression on her face."

When the boy arrived home he told his mother. The woman nodded and said, "Son, go back to the butcher and tell him I have also had free bread, free milk, and free groceries for the last 16 years and watch the expression on his face!"

a quick thank you

to jakes girlfriend georgie – for my pube trimming scissors. i used them tonight, they worked a treat!

it had to happen !!

they came back from the beach today with sunburn !!!!
oh yeah – despite all i told them, christine managed to get burned – please all feel free to laugh out loud.
so my day at work started badly, just one of those very bad moods that soon cleared by mid morning. Headed off to ikea for lunch with mason and a bit of babe spotting – always fun there!
tonight, i had some documents from my friend rob the soap at to help with the translation into english so that he can tap into a new market. Soapy is a good guy so i am more than happy to help. It has been at his hands that i have managed to get too drunk on many occasions.
so tonight i thought i should update my page. i am still waiting for details of an old friend of mine, Jo Beach to get her space up and running and to tell me where to find it. she was a complete cutie when i knew her but had a boyfriend …………..imagine how gutted i was when i found out she left him and married some other dude without even calling me first!  i am expecting her to be 100% MILFY though, keep watching my links to friends spaces to see what she is all about.
Kade gave me a copy of the latest Pearl Jam cd today, havent bought any of their stuff for a few years so will be good to see how they have progressed. To return the favour, i will lend him my copy of dave grohl acoustic – i know he will be in awe.
staying on the subject of music, if anyone out there has a copy of radio head playing live at glastonbury late 1990´s please let me know. the track both kade and me are after is karma police.  I asked the music guru herself – Max but she is all loved up again so will be slow to respond to the mail.
well i guess not more to tell you tonight but feel free to drop me a line or leave me a comment.
thanks for listening, and i would like to leave you with an unrelated qoute that touched me last week.
Pete Burns – you can lead a horse to water but can´t make it drink, you can lead a tart to culture but you can´t make her think!!!!

one day at a time

my count down timer is on – counting down until road trip time.
the fog horns sound louder now as the ships leave and to add to my excitement, a couple of metres swell is forecast for two days time.
mike and murdo lead me on tonight – told me there was a metre and a half forecast for pegeura.  believing the local knowledge, i headed there after work and guess what – flatter than a witches tit.
maybe on wednesday
heres hoping

dance anthems

i forgot to mention, the internet cafe have no objections to streaming radio 1 live so currently remembering my dance days with dave pearce – good old buy.
if i was in blighty now, i would be doing my ironing while listening to this dude – my god how things have changed.
for the better of course

sunny sundays

last night impromptu late night meant we didnt surface until around 10.30 this morning.  by the time i had suitably chilled and woken, three cups of coffee and some breakfast it was midday before we left for the north of the island.
mallorca was suddenly beautiful again. 30+ degrees and greenness everywhere.  we were heading to the very northern tip of the island to find two beaches that i had spotted from the aeroplane last week.  The drive up was superb, twisty mountain roads, hairpin bend one after the other – just like the italian job.
when we finally reached the tip of the island, i guessed that we had missed a turn or something. we arrived at the lighthouse sitting on top of cliffs that were at least 200 feet up if they were an inch.  Not much of a mountaineer, i didnt fancy the climb down (or back up again for that matter) so we turned and headed back to another beach we passed 10 k before.
A long thin beach that wrapped around the northern tip with plenty of baby jellyfish to deal with. sat for an hour or so before i got completely bored off my tits and managed to persuade the girls that we should head home and hit my fave little cafe opposite santa catalina market. two hot waitresses mean this is the best place to go (for me anyway)
so after a coffee we finally made it back to the apartment, picked up my usb lead, hit the diner for a burrito and then hotfooted it into the internet cafe to update my space.
so sit tight for now, i am sure i will have a dozen tales to tell of the girls antics this week.
enough for now
