Free Otto

January 3, 2009

It’s been a quiet start to the New Year. Not much going on, just sitting and drinking and eating, a game of bowls at Homestead Lanes, a bit of Abba Karaoke, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on DVD.

My New Year’s Resolution? To get fat.

And there’s no news… Well ,ok, there is news, like lots of violence and stuff in the Middle East, but that’s not really my kind of thing. Stop it now! All of you!

My kind of news is… 1000’s of shoes found on Miami Highway!

And… bored octopus juggles with hermit crabs! Yes! A bored German octopus passes his time juggling the poor hermit crabs and rearranging the furniture in his tank, to the dismay of all the Wallpaper-reading seahorses.

So, Free Otto. Join the campaign. We’ll rehouse him in a huge aquarium. We’ll give him the shoes from the Miami Highway to play with. Eight legs, a thousand pairs of shoes. We’ll rename him Imelda.

That’s enough nonsense. I’ll try to get back on track in the next few days. For now, back to getting fat.

Oops! Big big update. Just when I thought I could get away with frivolity. My brother-in-law is in the lounge getting all the news. He tells me Israel have gone in to the Gaza Strip. Well, get out.

And the shoe thing is starting to take shape. Now, a load of shoes have turned up in Downing Street. Just as I thought. One shoe hits Bush and it escalates! First Miami, now London. It’s going to be a worldwide shoe protest, and, I hope, the first time shoes have ever stopped war.

Better get in shape. End of New Year Resolution.
