Pathetic pansy-ass 2016

Sunday 28 February 2016, 5.35am HKT


THAT’s exactly the problem.

Try to schedule a post. Then misfired at the go-get. Then salvage the thing by adding rubbish to the empty post. A great start for the first post for 2016.

Please don’t remind me that my last post was a depressing 95 days ago.

The Year of the Horse isn’t a euphemism

Wednesday 12 February 2014, 3.40am HKT


The horse-head proposes

9pm local time, 8°C (45°F), overcast and chilly

THIS is my long-promised but SRSLY delayed Chinese New Fear Year post for the Year of the Woodchip Particleboard Horse.

The Chinese Year of the Wood Horse (Whores?) began a whole week ago last Friday (31 Jan) at 23h00 Hong Kong time (Thursday, 30 Jan, 16h00 UTC).

With that kind of delay, anybody could reasonable hit back that I might as well put out a 2014 Christmas post instead. Point taken.

Interestingly, the original ‘lede’ was to have been “Torommow will be…”

Yes, folks, ‘torommow’ is the latest Hong Kong spelling of ‘tomorrow.’ So now my readers are hip, flip and no blip in the hip-speak scene.

Like all Horse years, this year will be a year of horsetrading.

Dafuqizdat?

(Some words and pictures offensive to prudes, or exciting to w@nkers)
