Where in the world have you been?

This morning I was visited by a small snake. Everyone seems to think I should have killed it to prevent it from coming back when it is bigger, but I did not.

In the ‘more’ section below is a map of the countries in the world that I have visited. I got it from Thaths, we both score 13%.

    >> weather: Hot
    >> food: Porridge and fruit.

    Shouldn’t you build this into the blog template now…? 😉

    Were you really up and blogging at 5:14am?! Suppose it’s best to be up early before it gets too hot.

    Weather in Edinburgh is grey and v. cold (that could pretty much be default for this time of year, too). Off now to have kippers for breakfast (yeah, cue Supertramp, works every time).

    Muzungu Bwana Snake-Charmer Geeza!

    Nice snake you got there. Does he find it hard to get from place to place with such a blurry head?

    I think you ought to give him a name, something respectful and appropriate, like, say, "Mr. Blurry-Headed Snake Visitor." You could call him "Visitor" for short.

    Think about it.

    Presume us mortals aren’t allowed to put images in comments in case we do something evil and bad…?

    I had a go at making my world domination map, and simply through visiting 2 cities in the US, and going to Moscow once, they paint in most of the Northern Hemisphere for me! How nice! Only score 10% worldwide though. About time I got intercontinental again.

    Score 45% on Europe though… I knew there had to be a good reason I went to Luxembourg once (and it was even open, on a Tuesday!).

    This smiley looks like a yawn –> :laugh:

    Here’s a link to the map.

    See what I mean? Russia’s a jolly big place.
    :laugh: yawn….

    No, I wasn’t up and blogging at 5.15. I’ll try and find the place where I tell Greymatter what time zone Im in.

    Could call the snake Bwana Blurry I suppose. I like alliteration.
