Dirty Little Rats!

Ok, today must be the first time ever that I can't think of anything to blog. No funny stories, no complains, no neighbour rants. Nothing! My mind is a total blank right now. I sat here for a whole 10 minutes (really) staring at my screen hoping somehow the keyboards would miraculously start typing out something for me, though if that happened, especially so close to 12.00 midnight, being the coward that I am, I would have bolted out of here in a flash ... LOL!

Wifey actually just came over about 2 minutes ago and asked me why I was sitting here staring at an empty screen. I just have no idea what to post. Well, that's not entirely true though. I do have a few things running around in my mind but I just can't seem to form proper sentences to actually write them down. I guess the beer I had just know is probably dulling my brain and turning it into mush or something ...

'Beer, Nick? When did you start boozing?'

Well, I don't really booze, but today was the first Akedemi Fantasia concert and the beer was needed, trust me on that one. I'm no Akedemi Fantasia fan, but wifey is and based on the contestants progress throughout the week, the beer was needed to dull the mind while sitting through the torture of their horrendous singing during the concert and it kinda worked. They all sounded like Elvis to me after that ... LOL! Oh and for the benefit of my foreign bloggers, Akedemi Fantasia is somewhat like American Idol and is a craze over here with some people. And yes, the concert sucked big time. Thank god for Cuban beer :D

'Cuban Beer, Nick? You're really losing it aren't you?'

You gotta have variety once in a while you know. I was out at Cold Storage this afternoon with wifey and the boys and we were shopping for tidbits and stuff and I just had this urge to grab a bottle of beer, so there I was walking through the alcohol section trying to figure out which beer to buy when I spy this Cuban beer (first time I ever saw it though) and since I wanted to feel a little Fidel Castroish I tried it out. Bad mistake people. That beer tasted like fermented sewage water. And no, I haven't tasted fermented sewage water but if I did, that would be what the beer tasted like! No more beers for me, I'll just stick to something safer like Shandy ... LOL!

And today I also discovered that rats love chocolates. Or at least I think rats love chocolates unless there's some other little critter lurking around the chocolate section. I'm not making any sense here now am I? Well, wifey who is a chocolate lover was checking out some chocolates to get for the concert. She came across one that she liked called Milka or something. I'm not good with chocolate names.

And just as she was about to take a bar, we noticed one that was ripped open and eaten. We thought someone ripped it open and stole a few but upon closer inspection, we could tell it was done by some dirty little rats (pun intended) and she was totally turned off from buying any chocolates from that whole shelf! I checked a few more bars and there were small itsy bitsy teeth marks on a few other bars too. So I guess rats love chocolates too, ya? Or did you guys already know that and not tell me?


See, I told you guys I had nothing worth writing today. I mean how interesting and exciting can beer and chocolate loving rats be, ya? Maybe I could tell you guys about auto insurance quotes or something, that might prove to be more beneficial ... LOL! Who knows, one of you just may need to get your car insurance renewed or something and don't know where to look. Ok, ok, I'll go to bed already and spare you guys the agony of my really nonsensical post any longer. I guess Cuban beer, being up way past my bedtime and watching a horrendous concert dulls my brain to the max.

Oh, but before I go and join wifey in bed, who is by the way snugly cozied up in bed and fast asleep, let me wish all my Christian friends a very Happy and Blessed Easter :D
