Explanation of kitchen pictures

Just to clarify, the reason I am not in 'the cast' gallery is that I think you'll find enough pictures of me on the blog already…

The reason Jenny's pictures are so grainy is that I had to zoom in quite a lot- beyond the power of my optical zoom, and the digital one isn't the best on this camera (shoddy chinese workmanship!). Also she was wearing grain makeup.

It was particularly challenging to take pictures of my 'eastern' female housemates- for some reason they don't like having their pictures taken. I can't even begin to understand why anyone wouldn't want their picture taken- except perhaps those tribes where they believe it takes part of your soul, or is that only if you get the eyes. Or is that the islamic faith- who knows, and indeed why is it important?

For this reason I am particularly proud of my pictures of Jenny. The ones of Cheryl proved most unimpressive. I think she would have been far better off if she had just consented- at least then I would have a decent picture. To think she's leaving very soon and this is the only picture I have of her, (sniff)...

Jane on the other hand, proved very elusive. I managed to take a picture of her- the reflex actually made her look rather like an elf, which was very strange- sort of like the cover of my soundgarden album (superunknown). Unfortunately through some kind of mind control/hypnotic command, I found myself deleting it right away! Perhaps there is more to her than meets the eye…

Needless to say, the other pictures turned out alright- slightly racist, but alright nontheless (in one shot joseann was really black, and masaki was really yellow). I hope in the future the girls will not fear the camera as much. Personally, I don't understand what they are afraid of- with a still pose, even the worst camera in the world couldn't make them look unattractive.

    I heard there were pictures of Cheryl on the internet somewhere- perhaps on her blog?

    Interesting how Joseann got to take her picture…perhaps she doesn't trust you with a camera!

    Jane's no elf! Perhaps she's a witch or a sorceress that can not only control minds but change shape. You should be careful that she doesn't try to assume the image of a different person to trick you. Or worse! She could kidnap you and assume your life!!! Be afraid, be very afraid. Or you could call the Inquisition, I'm sure they'd love to take care of that…

    We want nothing to do with this witch you speak of! If she really is a witch, she will weigh as much as a duck and therefore float. In which case you may as well burn her.

    Although, this extreme method of healing is frowned upon these days… Perhaps you would be better off just breaking her wand? But DON'T call us! We want nothing to do with her!

    While perusing my historical lexicon of nautical terminology, I just so happened upon this entry… behold:

    Decades' does not refer to a measure of time, but is the modern English of the nautical term; 'Deck-Aids'. Which meant that a manatee had leapt onto the deck of the vessel and deliberatly cut itself in order to infect the seamen with 'the black death'. The aids-manatee or 'setee' was a beast employed by the Spanish during a 120 year period of political unrest between the English and Spanish thrones, both of which claimed the ownership of all the cheese on the moon. Manatees could make a fortune selling their services to the Spanish crown. One such manatee known as Charlie 'deckaidence' McMannatee, was reputed to have amassed 20,000 worth of gold florins. Rumor has it that he spent the money on a magical talisman from Peru, said to bestow hypnotic powers upon the wearer. Charlie is now the owner of the largest chain of mexicanwrestlingmask stores in south-america and is now rumoured to have had plastic surgery in order to look like a female Chinese student… but only his back… from the front he is still a manatee.

    Thus concludeth the lesson. beware our waterborne mamalian foes… for they are mighty their mastery of the dark arts.

    Interesting… Who is this Rodrigo? A scoundrel and a villain no doubt- I do not think it wise to trust anything this Rodrigo may say, for it is surely the work of the devil! Mutating aids-ridden mannatees indeed…

    (I have a warm chorizo waiting for you my decaident friend. Come have a 'siesta' in my fiesta and we shall converse of the good old days, in the language of crazy guitars- espagnoly)

    To those who read the last passage without permission: you are cursed to walk on your bellys- or perhaps your feet…YES! You are cursed to walk on your feet for the rest of your life!!! HA hahahahahaha- the mighty Espanserola triumphs again! hahahahaha haiiiii! Away to my fiesta! hasta la-fiesta, losers!

    Indeed. But i do feel that open-faced sandwiches are the best way to go, cheese on toast, the quintessential pizza, bread and butter…you get the point. Or rather someone will ;) Just gotta whip up something to put in between the cheese and the toast to give it a tasty surprise after the heat has melted away all inhibition…

    High Five!
