Monday morning

4 days in a row of posts - must mean I have some free time. Maybe not.

I just heard some outrageous news from a phone call in the U.S. I was told by highly reliable sources that my brother has been sending me emails, but that I haven't been responding. Let me just say right here, right now, to my whole reading audience, that this is the biggest preverification since...ah, heck, I'm no good at thinking up those, what do you call them, analogies. Or, is that a metaphor? How about that for an SAT question - what is the difference between an analogy and a metaphor? If you answer the question correctly, you pass and go straight to college. All the students that took my mom's class would pass.

The Rocking Fun Zone received some disturbing news this morning, also during the telephone conversation. The Fun Zone learned that readership levels may be somewhat lower than expected. While the Fun Zone appreciates every reader that graces these pages, the Fun Zone needs more, more, more. That is all.

To give you relevant Ethiopian input, the weather here is again rainy - sprinkling, if you will. The garbage hauling boy just stopped by to collect his monthly payment. For 15 Birr a month (less than $2), these guys come with a wheeled cart and take away your trash twice a week. Where it goes, no one knows. All right, I've got to get off with this abbreviated note as my singular employee has arrived for the day.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
