>Todd in 3D

>Todd in 3D Originally uploaded by zoeinbrussels. Todd was showing us what he’s going to wear for an oral exam this week and then saw the Twat’s 3D glasses on the table. When he put them on he looked so ‘cool’ that I got Q to take this photo of him. Very Madness.

>Sisters are doing it….

>8-8-09 the girls Originally uploaded by zoeinbrussels. There are my daughters, on August 8, 2009. A later photo than I had hoped for and one that looks like I am falling through my chair. The damn slats are giving way and I happened to be sitting on the first one to fail us all. So […]

>Of Hedgehogs and Men

>So. My beloved, whom I love deeply and I were walking to the tramstop where she saw a clump of something between the tracks. “Oh look, it’s a hedgehog!” she said, so I went over and had a look. “Is it a hedgehog” she asked. I gave it a huge kick down the track as […]

>Another prize!

>There have been a couple of posts about loo rolls recently and so when offered with this hand-made, pine loo roll from my mate Tony down the road I could only think of one thing: you, chickadees! Yes, you. I thought that maybe somebody would like to win this fine piece of wood-work for FREE […]

>The dizzying heights of Herman.

>climbing1 Originally uploaded by zoeinbrussels. That’s to show just how high Hermie climbs up until he makes his stilted fall to the bottom ending in a thud. Each time I watch him do it I crease up with laughter as there is one thing that a tortoise is not: graceful. I have winners for that […]

>Prison Break Part II.

>climbing2 Originally uploaded by zoeinbrussels. Here is Herman right at the top of his cage. He shimmies up between the wooden column to the left, his shed behind him and the front caging which gives him all the footing that he needs. The next question, of course, is how does he get down? Well that’s […]

>FML Book Review and Competition Update

> Good morning everyone. As you may have gathered, my beloved, whom I love deeply, hasn’t announced the winners of competition yet, so you’ve got a little more time to enter. Here’s my review of the book: There have been a bewildering amount of books turned into blogs, most of them only suitable as a […]

>A Shed

> Nope. Not mine, but doesn’t a shed grace any garden? Anyway, Ma’am has commanded me to blog cos she’s forgotten how to do links, or something. Earlier today her father contacted her with the advice “You’d better get one of these, quick!”. What was he talking about? A USB Wine Stick Enjoy.

>Things you find on the ‘net.

>Looking through my stats I saw that someone had come via MetaFilter due to this: “oh god. please god, don’t let my girlfriend write a book based on her blog. it’s like sebas’s link, but on steroids”posted by quarsan at 12:47 AM on July 8, 2003 If only he’d known then.

>Zoe Strikes Again

> My beloved, whom I love deeply has taken to staring out of the bedroom window through binoculars. This is how she monitors Herman’s pen. It’s far too like a guard in a watchtower for comfort, but there you go. Anyway, she was thinking about Herman Z: We should find out what sex Herman is […]

>Watermelon Time

> Here’s Herman tucking into his latest favourite snack, a sliver of watermelon. He can eat a piece that is around 10% of his body mass in a few minutes. I’ve no idea where he puts it, unless the shell is largely hollow. Still he’s happy. He eats so fast he even nibbled my finger. […]

>Meeting President Pottering

> The European Parliament is an odd place. There’s a lot going on there. In recent weeks I’ve heard choirs, seen virtuoso pianists, met film directors and so on. This is when the place isn’t in session, when it is, it gets even more surreal. Which brings us to today’s photo. My fellow hack, Cillian […]

>Prison Break.

>Herman trying to escape. Originally uploaded by zoeinbrussels. Unfortunately for me, that is not Wentworth Miller or Dominic Purcell trying to unsuccessfully escape from Herman’s run, but Herman himself. He does this two or three times a day and can get quite high up, depending on what he’s standing on. Last week saw Herman’s last […]
