Just another shit day in Africa.

Post by ZAffer » Tue Jul 30, 2013 2:31 pm

Some of you may have heard the phrase. It is usually delivered in a flat, neutral tone, and means the exact, absolute, opposite. I've just had one of those.

I wouldn't live anywhere else, with the possible exception of Nigeria.

Ignore the blood-splatter on my hand; annoying fuck, but the vegetable patch will be blooming.

I have not said this before, but Zaffer wins the prize as the most interesting poster on PS.
I truly never know, day to day what his next post will contain (OK the politics section is generally anti-US).
When I see the avatar I'm actually curious as to what the post will be.

So enlighten us, why are your hands so bloody?

Flobster that is no shadow. Look at where the sun is on his face and then tell me that is a shadow. Zaffer has sliced through his finger and instead of going to the hospital is now drunk, online and posting about what a great day it is.

Fucking excellent day; the lethargy etc of tick-bite fever has been driving me nuts for months. The meds already kicked in hours after I got them, and today I got a lot of stuff done. I attribute the effectiveness of the drugs to a long-term reluctance to take drugs in any form: those bugs didn't know what hit them. I's feeling very chirpy, so I can drink beer and smoke fags with gay abandon! Plus my girlfriend is coming around later, so seriously no worries. (You try fucking when you sick...no fun at all.)

Next time you decide to try to quit smoking, you should probably go cold turkey. Very few heavy smokers are able to cut back to one or two a day permanently. None that I've ever known.

You're probably doing just as many interesting things and drinking just as many beers, but you don't have as many wacky OPs as he does.

I hope that shit stops spreading into Mexico. I always knew Tamaulipas was a bit dicey when I would go there to visit family, but Yucatan on towards DF and surroundings I always considered very safe areas. Would hate for that to change.

Wasn't Michoacan where they burned that casino down with all those people in it though?

Tierra Caliente, where most of the bloodshed occurs at present. Monday, a large group of vigilantes made a show and five were shot dead by the narcos. Tuesday the military that raced to the scene were ambushed, result twenty-two dead. A couple of days ago an admiral was assassinated along with another near Lazaro Cardenas.

Am at this very minute sitting in the birrieria which photo you edited. No mayores-elect executed in the last fifteen minutes.

I was on a record pace of 4.42 liters per day for the month of July until Sunday. Been crook for two days and the avg has dropped to ~ 4.35. Not a record.

That was up near Monterrey. Dragon might know more. Uruapan a few miles down the road from me is where they were bowling severed heads in the disco.

Oi! I thought WE were the crime the crime capital of the world! No fair! The hat was a present from some young slackpacker when she was in India. (Keeps the 'peacock' neat.) Dunno if it has any significance, but it seems to get a certain deference in some circles. As is my due. Or maybe it's just because I'm white.(What the fuck colour did you expect, THFKATD?)
I've also just had a most satisfying NO. 2. (After a kg of lasanga.) I'd post a pic, but I dropped my camera in the bowl. Did I miss anything? Has the damnyankee shift arrived yet?

That's my AmericanJoke pose, except I've never raped life or owned a Camaro.

Today I built a bedstand in the corner to my left, it's 95 cms high plus the colchon, so a hop to get on bed, but elevated mattresses are best.

All of that after another attempt to end a thirty-five year "relationship", an hour at the lumber yard, purchasing 61 beers, posting from the birrieria, and

discovering that I am essentially blind in anything other than bright light. So far, fifty-two is so-so. Fifty-three is bound to be better.

ZAffer looking good!
