In the news today
Off to work this morning and managed to get through the traffic without meeting any idiots today – that’s always a bonus!
Popped onto Google.com to stick a quick line in the Google Translate tool and found it’s a certain persons 138th birthday today. Well it would be if he was still alive….
Wednesday is a half day for lucky me so first stop from leaving work was Jumbo Bebe (needed a new hairbrush as I’ve lost the one I use to blow-dry my hair). Had to put the A/C on in the car for the first time this year when I got stuck in traffic on the road by the Ajax Hotel heading up towards the traffic lights. Long summer on the way maybe?
Got home from Jumbo and literally as I shut the front door the whole house rattled.
The patio door shutters started rattling, then our Egypt “artefacts” in the display cabinet joined and finally, the house decided to do a quick “one, two” shuffle sideways a few times. It was like a ripple effect and I wouldn’t have felt it but for the fact I was standing still because it took me a few seconds to put two and two together to register what was actually taking place.
We haven’t had a decent tremor in Cyprus for some time now but this was one big by comparison to our usual 3.2 magnitudes.
4.4 magnitude #earthquake just off the coast of #Cyprus near Kolossi a little over an hour ago. Woo Hoo – wobbles!!!! emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/ear…—

So now it’s almost 4.30pm as I’m typing this up and I thought I would celebrate the day by buying myself a new book for my Kindle – which got me to thinking…. Is it really possible to “buy” something that’s free?
Last but not least, I’ve just downloaded the results of The Voice (USA Season 2) and shall settle down later this evening to find out which of the 4 finalists we watched last night won the series. I reckon it’s a toss up between Ceilo Green’s protege or Blake Shelton’s.
But what I really want to know is, and something that’s intrigued us all the way through this series of the The Voice is just “what is the problem that Christina Aguilera has with Adam Levine’s chosen singer, Tony Lucca?“
If he had any chance of winning the show, Team Xtina most definitely put the kibosh on it with her comments last night as well as all the way through this series.
I’m trying to avoid twitter now for the rest of the day. Luckily
@NBCTheVoice isn’t on my twitter list of “follows”.
