NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND


Actually, that should be "Notes from small island that think it's big." Small island syndrome. Akin to a Napoleon little man complex, but applied to countries. Do you want further proof that my comparisons are correct. Cats. Remember those powerful little men who invade countries, Napoleon, Hitler and Tom Cruise. Ok, not Tom Cruise he has cuban heels. If only the other two had discovered cuban heels, but I digress cats wasn't it?

Well you know the old chestnut about little men dictactors having the cat phobia, well I think the island does too. Take the Manx cat. It's a tailess cat. I mean only the island that has a three legged flag could produce a tailess cat, and yes some islanders are wary of them. So you see, little dictators persuing world domination, but fear the kitty cat and little island persuing financial industry world domination, but fear of the kitty cat. I rest my case.

It's been a busy old time lately. I took my eye off the ball for a wee while and the wallaby left the island, and the cones moved in closer. I now have the photographic evidence of the cone infestation. Quick, call in Mulder and Scully, it's an x file.

One more thing. This blog isn't supposed to make sense, it's light hearted, tongue in cheek, ranting and raving of my far too clever for her own good alter ego. So please newbies, don't be snippy. You have to admit the Tom Cruise gag was good. Just click and your'e away from the nasty blog.


WALLABY WATCH!
Kidnapped by aliens, rumour has it. Remember folks The truth is out there!

Woot! Glad you're back, missed you and I'm so glad to be part of the tongue in cheek, rantings and ravings......

Yikes, hope the Wallaby returns safely and Scully & Mulder are safe and happy too!

Heh heh great post - oh and I'm finally going to get around to doing that meme today lol! I've actually thought of one (the bath is always the best place to think of these things, right?)

My family has always objected to my "little man" complaints (hubby and 1st son are shorter than I am) but lack of height doesn't necessarily define the little man. They can be short without being little.

But I found - oh, too many years ago to think of now - that a tall girl is a challenge to a little man!

Rant away. I'm happy to join in!

Hi there!

Just been listening to the local government election results on Radio 4!
What a landslide away from Mr Brown...
TY for interesting info re partner.

I'm not really a true Green!
But, I do believe Local Elections should be about local issues & not national ones, so I vote according, based on what I see happening in my city.

Catch you later on photo blog for your Sky Watch.

Take care
Blue

I've been lucky enough to visit your little island a couple of times and it's beautiful. I'd happily come to stay long enough to develop a cat and cone complex. As for Tom Cruisian Syndrome, just remember that he believes he's an alien, and I'm not catching that. A case indeed for Mulder and Scully. Great post hunny. xx
