We’ve been to the Zoo.

Which in an of itself is nothing I would inform you guys about.

But if you take into account that Europe is under the influence of the third (!) devastatingly excruciating heatwave, with harvests that usually took place in September are being conducted right now (!), that is worth mentioning.

You know it’s hot when,

the Hippo is not “hungry hungry” but “fuck off sleepy”…

…panthera leo is a cat. What do cats do when it’s hot? Right, the same thing as “fuck off sleepy Hippo”,

…and when even the Koala – who should be used to skull frying heat – couldn’t give a frak, you know it’s hot.

If there is a heatwave related fire in the area, do not hesitate to call the

Hint: the word you were searching for is “firefighters”…

Athena & Teddy (Bedtimestory)

One night, Athena the Owl flew from the her forest home down to the town where the little boy lives. She knows he can’t sleep without her there to cuddle and watch over him.

But there was a dense fog covering the forest and streets of the town, so she got lost!

Until she came to a crossroads following the lights on the street. She took a turn left after perching on a streetlight for a moment. But that road came to a dead end. and that is not where the boy lives. So she turned back and took the way straight from where she had originally come.

After some time she realized she had come to town square. That wasn’t where the boy lives either. So, after flying back, she used the las road in the crossroads and came to the house where the little boy lives. An old small bear sat at the door. “Why are you out here little bear?” Athena asked.
“I’m Teddy and I used to come here, but the boy I came to visit, cuddle and watch over has all grown up now. He has a baby now.” his sad voice was made sadder by his frown.
“I come here for that baby to cuddle me and to watch over him!” Athena exclaimed! “Come with me, and we can both attend the little boy, I’m sure if his father sees you, he will be glad too.”

So the little owl and the little old bear went inside to the bed of the little boy. Quickly Athena climbed into the bed and cuddled against the small boy, who embraced her eagerly. With a tired, but still curious and loving gaze he reached for Teddy, who too got to cuddle with him.

Sleep tight you folks.

Caffeine (comedy)

One of these days I’m gonna drop dead.

I’ll just stop breathing, and tumble over.

They will discover then that I have no more blood in my system, but pure undiluted caffeine!
Curious how I survived to the point of my death they’re gonna start an autopsy, just when placing the scalpel for the first incision I’ll wake up, screaming!
They’ll ask “How do you live?” to which I’ll reply “What do you mean ‘How do I live?’ I just DO! How DO YOU live??”
“You ain’t got no blood, only caffeine pumping through your veins!”
“Then why do feel tired all the time?” even more curious they’ll want to cut me open anyway, to which I’ll say “You can’t! You fracking can’t! There is no sufficient caffeine transfusion to keep me alive and you Frackers swore an oath to protect life!” then I’ll hook up a can of RedBull to my veins and run off.

‘Cause you see, sleep is a commodity that many can’t afford these days.
Myself very well included.

Ask doctors, and they’ll tell you that eight hours a night is healthy, and just what you should get.
Frak you!
If I want eight hours of sleep I’d need to go to bed at 9pm! But there’s too much left to do at 9pm!

First of all my baby needs feeding, bathing, change of diapers. Then my wife needs (my) time too, something she sadly doesn’t get enough of as of late. Don’t forget – watering the plants, wlaking the dog, dishes, laundry, and tidying up a little.
Go to bed at 9 pm and you’ll vomit in your pyjamas the next morning when you see the mess in the kitchen.

So, no. No sleep at 9pm, bugger off. In the meanwhile I’ll keep substituting sleep with coffee transforming myself slowly but steadily from a “Homo Sapiens Sapiens” into a “Homo Sapiens Caffeinis” – something like a zombie, only aware and only harmful to coffee and energy drinks…Who needs oygen when you have sugar? Who needs nutrients when you’ve got caffeine? ;Þ
