Been Gone Awhile

It feels weird to be back and writing in my own blog after all this time.  Sort of like going back to your old childhood neighborhood...without getting mugged, of course.

So what has VE been doing during all of this time?

- Taking advanced typewriter repair courses.  Ya gotta look after your career...and your teeth.

- Writing virtual posts.  They're as useful as regular posts; they just don't take up any time.

- Mastering the yoga pose savasana.  If you don't know this one; it's basically just lying flat on your back and doing nothing.  I find it the only yoga pose I'm truly flexible enough to master without looking ridiculous or being in pain.  The real trick is avoiding snoring.

- Adding random countries to maps of Africa.  It's fun.  I mean, come on, countries in Africa change names more than women change fashion!  What's a newly made country like Botsogide between friends?  Most people are ignorant anyway.  They won't know it doesn't exist until they can't book their flights to adopt babies from it.

- Researching Gumby's geneology.  There's a reason his head slants to one side...but that's classified.

- Starting a Canadian Nascar franchise.  Apparently all that frigid air up there knocked some sense into them because they won't come outside in -50C temperatures to watch a bunch of readnecks spend $25,000 in fuel just to drive in circles.

Savasana is the only pose I'm interested in mastering

Baino said...

Hmm good to see you've been using your time productively. Thank goodness for Reader or I'd have never known you're back.

I'm with you on that being the best yoga pose. I just thought Gumby had the slanted head because they ran out of clay when they were making him and then got stuck with him looking like that. Geez, now I find out it is classified. Does that mean I have to pull my head out of the sand?

Oh and you have been a busy man. And with all the changes happening in Northern Africa, when the Califate happens we can just call them all by numbers, Islamic Nation 1, Islamnic Nation 2, Islamic Nation 3, etc. I mean they will all have the same leaders and besides how will we be able to tell any of the women apart from one country to another, they do kinda all look the same when covered up.

Yup, the democracy is for the men, not the women who are considered second class citizens. I hope all women try to avoid the area like the plague, I think I will only travel to areas where the men put their women on a pedestal. Okay, it is sometimes lonely here on Venus but it is still safer then No. Africa.

God bless.

Great to see you back, VE! And I'm with you on the NASCAR thing, although it doesn't take -50ºC temps to keep me away from watching overgrown boys waste gas driving in circles all day.

Dang! No wonder you took so much time off... that's a lot of activity! Hope you're not too exhausted from all of that.

gab said...

Ok I thought that said snort not snore and I thought whats wrong with snorting I do it? alot lol. And if they wanna adopt kids why dont they do it here in AMERICA where Im sure there are thousands of kids waiting for someone to give them love.? I really dont want to start on that "sigh" Oh and welcome back.

ReformingGeek said...

Ah, yes, savasana, easiest post to spell in Sanskrit. OK. Trikonasana may possible be a bit easier...

Drop and give me 5 minutes holding Chaturanga Dandasana while reciting all the African nations..

Kurt said...

You are officially back on the Internet.

secret agent woman said...

That's my only yoga pose, too.

Janna said...

Imagine that; I've been doing Savasana my whole life and never knew it.

There should be a country named "Pepsi", just so we can have fun watching the Pepsi company try to sue them.

The Incredible Woody said...

OMG! I think I'm related to Gumby. I have a cousin whose head slants to one side. Everyone always said it was from "the accident" but now I know the truth...

VE said...

Sybil – Thanks, now I have to round up the gnomes. They tend to wander when I’m not around…

Nursemyra – It’s a worthy pursuit too…

Baino – Wait…who said I’m back? I’m just hacking my own blog…

Mrsupole – Hmmm…if you put your head in the sand…aren’t you really just bending over for the government? ;)

Roy – It’s a tough sell up North…

Boom boom larew – Naw…I delegate the gnomes to do most of the real work…except savasana that is…

Anne – You’ve been shaking your head for a long time now…you must have healthy neck muscles!

Gab – Snorting isn’t allowed either. Now farting…that seems to happen to somebody every class!

Reforminggeek – Chaturanga? I thought at first that was some new Chalupa entre!

Kurt – Do I get some kind of certificate?

Secret agent woman – I think that’s all the real zen masters had and then some mean person invented all the others for us to suffer…

Janna – I’d live in Pepsi!

Incredible woody – Shhh…that’s classified!

Jaime said...

Subby said...

VE said...
