the elephant blowjob

It was grey and wet this morning so I brought my unbrella. I had taken one of the strong ibuprofens and my ulcer protection pill and as a consequence I was as happy as Larry and didn't feel a tiny bit of pain. I walked towards the Ringvaart through Laing's Nekstraat. This tiny street is named after the Battle of Laing's Nek (lost by the British) during the First Boer War in 1881. It was the last battle in which the British carried their colours into battle. Four ensigns in succession were shot down carrying the colours of the 1st Battalion, 58th Regiment of Foot.

I carried on (without colours) along Ringvaart, crossed Linnaeusstraat and turned into Linnaeusparkweg. I then turned left into Copernicusstraat, not knowing where this would end.


copernicusstraat

It turned out that Copernicusstraat ended at the railway bridge near work.

I passed under the railway, turned right onto MacGillavrylaan and immediately got stuck in the sand. There still isn't a proper footpath along this road, not even in front of the building where people are already living. The footpath you see in the photo stops right before the building. If you live there you have to walk through the sand.

At work I passed the door to the workshop. As you can see the security gates, which should have been operational today, could easily be bypassed here. The gates didn't function either.

I had an appointment with Ben of the Typo3 consultancy at 09:00 to install the most up-to-date version of the content database on my real server. We installed the database by the book, and it didn't work. We then reinstalled it, not by the book, and that didn't work either. We then dropped the whole database all together, installed another variation of not-by-the-book and this time it worked. It worries me that by-the-book installations don't work. This means you might have to tinker with the software every time there's a change.

Ben wasn't ready yet with his php plug-in, so our phonebook didn't work and will have to be installed at a later date.

In the afternoon I updated the old website (and some others) with work that had been stacking up during the week. I also tried to make a page with a Flash movie player, to be used for the LHC event. The player had worked in the past, but due to upgrades in Flash there was the problem that H.264 encoded QT movies only played for 3 seconds and then the image froze. When I converted the movies to FLVs they did work. I don't want to convert them to FLV; I've got most of my movies in QT H.264 format and converting hours and hours of my movie library wil take forever and downgrade the visual quality. I'll have to think of something else.

After work I took the bus to Insulindeweg. The weather was nice and sunny. I walked through Javastraat where I had a look in the photo shop at the Lowepro SlingShot 200 AW bag for my photo gear. The bag is only € 85 in this shop, whereas it's € 120 in the photo shop on Beukenweg. If I decide to buy it I'll probably buy it in Javastraat.

I went straight to Oosterpark where I crossed the little wooden bridge. It had a post on every corner with the directions of the compass on it. Think of it as an early version of the Tom-Tom.

On a whim I didn't follow my normal route, but turned towards Mauritskade halfway through the park. I was surprised to see elephants in the street. The people at 55c were testing blow-up African elephants. If you stand at the other side of the street they look pretty life-like.

I walked home and did some shopping at AH. Dinner was an Italian salad.

Industrial trademarks, Eddie, he answered. Any grafter can make money. Your brother James in particular. I merely wondered about it. Have you examined any data on Rearden Metal? I have no talent or taste for dealing with people. Who is supporting you now? The sky was still the intense blue of evening.

She sat up, staring with her nightsight at the outlines of the men around her. They had both recognized Salins unique voice when hed spoken through his mindlink with Radin. Lanthan saw her move. Rhaes markings stood out on his black skin, almost glowing in the amply lit arena. She was the one to blame. It was so different, this control. Eyrhaen peeped up to see her blow a kiss at her truemate. She, too, was watching, her cheek resting on the top of his head. Nialdlye wore a simple green shift that barely reached her thighs. Ive treated you all miserably in the past, because I could, because you let me. What more do you want me to say? Gods, I would hope not. Shed convinced herself it was over. They still refused to relent. I love you, she murmured, needing to share the warmth in her heart. She closed her eyes and yawned. For you, came his hidden thought, I would make time. In the time shed had with them, Eyrhaen had been a main point of discussion. I fell in love with you when I was only a shadow in the darkness. He switched his hold as he knelt on the mattress.

He grabbed her shoulders in a punishing grip and hauled her back onto his cock. His face was devoid of its former markings, the skin smooth and black and unblemished. Unfortunately, that included using Eyrhaen as a lodestone, both for Herself and for Her people. Below her, even more people filed in through the open archway across from her balcony. His hands were comforting weights on her shoulders, helping her to ground.

I think that everything composed was actually very reasonable.

But, what about this? what if you added a little content?
I am not saying your information is not good, but suppose you added something to possibly grab folk's attention? I mean "the elephant blowjob" is a little boring. You could look at Yahoo's front page and see how they create news titles to get people interested.
You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people interested
about everything've written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
