Last night I was having dinner at my favourite Japanese restaurant when a dodgy looking couple walked in. As I have the back corner table I had the best of views. I knew they were trouble and watched the trap unfold. The woman pretended to be extremely thirsty and asked if she could buy a bottle of water, whilst the guy stood in the doorway. It is a restaurant so it was an unusual request. Anywho, as the guy paid for the water the woman placed her bag on the counter (over the tip jar) and grabbed the notes out from under it. They then both hurried off out the door, not even bothering to take the water. As soon as they left I went up and told the staff what had happened. While I was talking to the manager and laughing my head off, I could see the now furious couple yelling at each other in the carpark. The reason? The tip jar is always full of useless old notes from Asia. And the bonus, the waitress charged them $4.50 for the water. Classic fail.
When a queue starts forming the first thing you think of is …FOMOers, Spice Girls tickets or a bargain sale. But you would all be wrong if you saw the line of 4,800 plus lining up in the pouring rain in the UK over the weekend. They weren’t there for a sale, or concert tickets, they were all there to get tested. Tested for being a potential stem cell match to save a 5-year-old boy fighting a rare cancer. Yes, young, old, males, females, and every nationality under the sun queued up outside a primary school in Worchester in hope of being a match for little Oscar. The desperate parents did a shout out in a last ditched effort to save their little boy. You can check out the campaign here ‘Hand in Hand for Oscar’.
A dead humpback whale has been found in the Amazon jungle. That’s it, I got nothing!
Two questions, did you make the cover yourself and what on earth could be under it? OK, no, I have a third question. Do you fold, roll or bundle the cover when you leave?
I am currently creating a new Friggin Loon Page on Facebook because apparently just having a normal Friggin Loon profile is no longer enough. Yep, FB stopped my WordPress feed and I have been silently protesting ever since. I’ll be damned cutting and pasting on both platforms. Don’t worry followers (the two of you), they are recreating my site so you will all be soon receiving my WP posts once again.
Seriously, life is complicated enough without having to go down this slippery slope. Yes, I know, patience is a virtue. BUT when you have forgotten your FB passwords it tests the most virtuous of us.
You know what I hate? When a serial killer, who confessed to killing over 90 women, begins sketching and painting some of his victims in his cell. What the? He gets to do arts and crafts? Investigators have been encouraging him to draw his victims in chalk, pastels and watercolours in an attempt to identify them. According to the FBI, Sam Little has an eye for detail, especially when capturing their petrified expressions. Very Gacyesque.
Sam Little had gone under the radar for over 40 years until he got kaboomed with Historic DNA. Aint that a bitch. Having been linked to three murders he later confessed to many, many more. As is with some serial killers he chose to kill vulnerable women, such as drug addicts and prostitutes. He also strangled his victims before dumping them in dense forest areas, making it seem as though they died by accident.
Investigators are struggling to identify many of the women as the killings span the length and breadth of the US. Despite this, they have confirmed 36 women so far.
If you suspect one of your relatives is a serial killer off you trot to Ancestry.com and take them down, I say.
