Suddenly a decade seems like nothing …

Man, 24, weds 82-year-old bride


A 24-year-old Argentine man has married a woman 58 years his senior.

The groom, Reinaldo Waveqche, told reporters after the ceremony in Santa Fe, northern Argentina: “I’ve always liked mature ladies.”   Mr Waveqche added: “I don’t care what other people say.” He and bride Adelfa Volpes, 82, are planning to travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon.

Asked if the marriage was purely spiritual, Ms Volpes laughed and replied: “There is going to be more.”  The couple were married in a civil service after several years of engagement, and later walked through a local church surrounded by reporters.

Their love blossomed when Mr Waveqche went to live with her after his mother’s death when he was 15.    

He said he admired his new wife’s zest for life, and emphasised how special she was to him.

It makes no sense! :|

Went to the Sushi Station for dinner tonight.  Quite a nice dining experience, apart from the haste.  You can see the guys in the kitchen there and they’re working a mile a minute, and you know there’s more people waiting outside for a table, so you do feel compelled to just eat and get the hell out of the place.  Probably great for business, not so great for digestion.

And for some reason, from the minute I walked in the place. I had China Grove by the Doobie Brothers running through my head.  Go figure… if anyone works out the segway there, I’d be very interested to hear it!


When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
down around San Antone
and the folks are risin’ for another day
’round about their homes.
The people of the town are strange
and they’re proud of where they came.

Well, you’re talkin’ ’bout China Grove, wo, oh, oh,
oh, China Grove.

Well, the preacher and the teacher,
Lord, they’re a caution, they are the talk of the town.
When the gossip gets to flyin’ and they ain’t lyin’;
when the sun goes fallin’ down.
They say that the father’s insane
and dear Missus Perkin’s a game.

We’re talkin’ ’bout the China Grove, wo, oh, oh,
oh, China Grove.

But ev’ryday there’s a new thing comin’,
the ways of an oriental view.
The sheriff and his buddies
with their samurai swords,
you can even hear the music at night.
And though it’s part of the Lone Star State
people don’t seem to care,
they just keep on lookin’ to the East.

Talkin’ ’bout the China Grove, oh, China Grove.

Monkey see, monkey do.

I dont know how it happened, but I found myself down in the production warehouse today stuffing envelopes in the handline standing next to the Production Manager, the National Human Resources Manager, the Regional Quality Assurance Manager and the General Manager of the entire company! I have no idea how this came about. One minute I was upstair answering emails, and the next they had drafted everyone who wasn’t screamingly busy to come down and do some training monkey hand work – stuffing envelopes on the PDS line for a massive mailout for a large superannuation company that was falling behind and not going to make it’s deadline.

Actually it was kinda fun. We were all standing around in our nice work clothes … stilettos on some of the office women, and ties on the Business Development Executives, laughing and stuffing envelopes. It was an okay way to spend a few hours, but I certainly wouldn’t want to do it full time or anything. Stuff that! On your feet all day, doing the same thing over and over…. you’d go absolutely brain dead. And never mind the noise when the DLX machines start running… omg. No thanks…. don’t ever want to go there.

What’s wrong with this picture?

I get a regular email from the Rammstein online community… yes I know… it’s about as twee as humanly possible to be subscribed to a fan mail newsletter… but it’s Rammstein yes? So there’s like, less humiliation in admitting to being subscribed to their newsletter, than say… oh, I don’t know… Kelly Clarkson or some such shit. And I am keen to know if they are ever planning to tour Down Under.. or somewhere near by, like maybe Hong Kong or something :S so I stay subscribed (besides they have some really cool merchandise from time to time 🙂

Anyway at the bottom of the latest mail out was this notation (love the interesting translation from the German) and a link to this video…

“Those who want to know whereat one laughs the most in the Rammstein home at the moment, should be tempted to dance here!”
