Sweet, sweet idiocy

Politically-minded bloggers and visitors, help out this Poli Sci undergrad: my hypothesis is that he is a raging moron. Am I right? Or am I just correct?

Da boss is going, going.....

I just found out a few days ago that my boss- who bears an uncanny resemblance to the cartoon here-is going back to Canada, undoubtedly so that he can catch some more yummy fish in Newfoundland, which, sources tell me, is about the only thing one can do in Newfoundland. This means that I must now con ANOTHER guy/gal into thinking I'm competent. Sigh.

From the 6th (!) Annual Miss Afro-Hungary beauty pageant

A few weekends ago, after a chap informed me about this blessed event, I made the trek to Budapest's suburban 14th district. And what a sight for sore eyes it was.


Now this is my kind of cultural experience

An important public service announcement

Pictures of deserted synagogues, Madagascarian lemurs, and authoritarian statues coming soon. Until then, please be sure to protect your banana.

Closer to a triple X rating

My laptop is alive! Alive I tell you! Many thanks to the fellows in IT for said miracle. Plum vodka awaits. Also, the big 2-9 is today. Celebrated by realizing that there are infinitely worse places and jobs for me than the current one which looks good until March '07 or so. (This means that my blog will become incredibly boring as opposed to my Korea days.)

My laptop is dead

I consider this a bad thing. On the bright side, I did get published.

I'm B-a-a-a-c-k

And dirty. The building is going 0 for 2 in the washing machine department. If I weren't a bachelor I would go crazy. (-ier.)

If my computer doesn't die until then, I will tell you about the bedrock of Hungarian civilization tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Mi familia cont´d

So am back in BP. A grey and rainy weekend spend among people I can actually quasi-understand. Clad in winter clothes and surrounded by a sort of nice warm fuzzy atmosphere. Time to get off the computer.

An ideal venue

I have returned to Budapest for the weekend. The program, besides mx fam will be shopping at the Chinese market, eating at the Chinese market and generally making a pest of mysel- at the Chinese market....


and attending the annual Miss Afro-Hungary beauty pageant. Pictures to follow. Not sonograms though. (I am an eternal quasi-optimist).

Satan is one sexy bitch?

So presentation time again. To quote one:

"Today, I here to talk about Satanist. Satanist is religion,'s oldest religion. This {holding up pentagram} is Satanist symbol. Satanist people dress in black and cast ummm...spells on the not Satanist people. Their women dress in ummm sexy- sorry, sexy, so ummm very sexy outfit that is black also and very ummm tight around the body."

I did an image search for sexy satanists and this is what I got:
get thee behind me Satan

The Q and A session, or at least an excerpt:

"How do you know all this?"
"I know ummm many sexy people."

The pictures will be on tomorrow but first, ponder priorities:

Within three blocks of the Uni are five drinking holes and two restaurants.

Begin the picture show (with snarky comments)

I am indebted to Noorster for calling the national bloggers contest to my attention. I couldn't sign up through their site but am with you in spirit. And so, starting tomorrow (this being a lazy kinda introductory post thingamajig), I will begin The Not Last Picture Show.
