Oxyzen & On my Feet Again


psiiiiiishhh (inhale) …. hhaaasshhh (exhale) … psiiiiiishhh (inhale) …

hhaaasshhh (exhale) … psiiiiiishhh (inhale) … hhaaasshhh (exhale) …

no kidding now people THIS IS THE SONG OF LIFE !!!

Just dare and contradict me -:))

Oxyzen turns me on and makes me high. My only drug forevaah -:))

It’s so strange though; have you thought about it? oxyzen makes metals rust and go soft, it accelerates combustion and makes people grow old (and new again -but that’s not the point now). If I were an alien visitor on earth I would distrust this gas. I would look down at and at the same time admire the organisms who breathe and live on it, like we humans feel about those unbelievable forms of life who are able to live in boiling water and toxic gas coktails clinging to the cliffs among the craters and the cracks of active submarine volcanoes.

So I’m on my feet again.Image

It’s a big national celebration today: The Greek Independance Day

It’s also a big religious holiday: Annunciation, Ευαγγελισμός της Θεοτόκου.

(Virgin Mary, the Angel, the Lily)

Many Evangelos and Evangelias‘ names day. I am invited by one of them. They will play bouzouki music there. I am still not able to smoke or drink, but I feel like singing Image tonight. As a dancer I am nule, but I can sing -I sing well actually. So I’m going to try my deep sorethroat-stuffed nose sexy voice on the rembetika. What’s rembetika? The rembetika are «Songs of the Jail and the Old Greek Underworld» (ho-ho-ho). I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow. I may also transcribe the verses of one or two of my favourites.

Enjoy breathing…Image

The ‘no comment’ request is only for the «The Story of…» episodes, ok?

I think you are meant to inhale the haaash, to get maximum effect, not exhale.

You are a tease! Where is Episode 2 in the story of your life?

I agree w/Simon on that other stuff, and congrats to Greece and Greeks.

Hey! We got spring yesterday here in England! Nice to think we were one step ahead of Italian climate for once. The daffodils are dancing in my local park.

-> I have a cold, I have a sore throat, I have a headache, I have dry lips, I have a red nose, I have red eyes and they are running. I have a dribbling mouth. I have a lot of toilet paper and the waste paper basket is by my side. I empty it every 4 hours. The content will be good fertilizer for the garden.

-> I don’t have fever. I don’t have cramps. I don’t have stomachache. I don’t have diarrhoea. I don’t have bird flu.

-> I don’t have malaria. I don’t have two red hot iron bars in my nostrils (I’ve checked it in the mirror).

-> I can write & I can think too -very hard, slowly and exclusively about my nose, but I can think.

-> I can’t smoke. I can’t have coffee. I can’t eat. I can’t remember what french fries (Ikarian style -my favorite) taste like.

here iz zome mbore mnews

-> I delivered the final draft of something and it was well received.

-> I went out to see a piece of land (a cliff actually). I liked that piece of land.

-> I met the man with the earth mover (bulldozer) who is going to make a road to the land I liked.

He is going to destroy at least half of the beauty of that land (not to mention that the road will be very risky and probably slide down and disappear altogether), however the price of the land will rise because it will be ‘accesible’ then.


-> In spite everything I liked that man!?! ^^’ 

These 4 factors combined together undermined and weakened my (overloaded) system, so I caught a virus (as it usually happens with me) and now I’m running on «safety mode» tzzz krk krk bzizk apstchou !…

+ zome goodz mnews

-> today waz ze firzt day of zpring. «Earini Isimeria» = equal day-equal night. Εαρινή Ισημερία.

-> many ozers too, not only me, are ill, the zame az me.

-> I got rid of the idea that I am harming the tourism of Ikaria with my pictures in Flickr.

-> Someone is coming tonight to rub my back with warm alcohol. I will be allowed (and I’ll allow myself) to groan, sigh & moan during the process. I’ll be allowed (and allow myself) to be ill.

P.S. did you know? I was going to post that photo of the sea here anyway but then as I opened my Ikaria 139blog I saw the last of Jimmy P’s comments. I dedicate this photo to him. No one should deprive anyone of such a view of the sea. It must remain public.

Grazie 1000 per la dedica, sono onorato.

Get well soon, El! It’s difficult to read the blog when you type with a stuffy nose  😉

Telling your life story, eh? That sounds like it has a bit more soul-stealing potential than a photograph to me.

The sea is endless, life is not, that’s what it means.

We look forward for spring and here’s what we get… hahaha

There is terrific tempest of the equinox blowing right now right here. I won’t go out to take pictures. I’m staying in drinking tsipouro (like ‘grapa’ hey Jimmy?) in warm water with honey. Good medicine… Felicia, my cat, sings me her songs. She is pregnant.
