Am back, quick, pretend you missed me

Hey y’all, it’s been a while; I’d taken time off to recover from the trauma of Chelsea’s loss to Man-Utd. The mere mention of the incident is sufficient to return me to the brink of the abyss but I’ll not succumb to such disheartening impulses: Having re-watched and re-examination the match am now quite convinced that it was simply a case of ill fortune. And yesterday’s win over Newcastle has greatly bolstered my recovery. In the intervening time, the cock still crowed, markets opened and closed, money was made and lost, and African leaders continued to loose their militia onto citizens- Meles Zanawe and Yoweri Museveni, don’t look away. Damn time, damn life, it just carries on without you!! If only, it just laboured on, that would be bad enough but it positively springs along as though nothing changed! But y’all have missed me, right? Right? Ah (sigh of relief), just as I thought. Some pretty remarkable reports have emerged in the meantime.
A CIA report released last week revealed that Fidel Castro is ailing from Parkinson’s and will soon be to encumbered with it to maintain his grip on Cuba.
Concerns about the reliability of the report and the implications of it aside, it’s really heart-warming to witness the CIA’s latest transformation into. It sure has come a long way from the days when it plotted against and assassinated socialist leaders (The DRC owes it a huge debt of gratitude, that Patrice Lumumba was a threat not just to the Country but to the world as a whole. Thanks to the CIA, the Congolese people have enjoyed unprecedented prosperity).
The CIA is probably taking its cue from America’s oh so compassionate commander in chief. Speaking of whom, the leader of the free world has once again outdone him-self. The latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll revealed that the ever so moral president has managed to get himself less trusted than the immoral, deceitful and altogether despicable former president Clinton; proving once again that with heaps of talent and a little help from one’s friends nothing’s unattainable.
Got to go, will post again soon.

Oh we noticed. And we don't for a second believe any of that twoddle about grieving for a team who lost a stupid football game. Go on now. Tell us the truth about what you've really been up to.

Oh and your post was fun to read too.

Hey ck, i really have been broken up about chelsea and Real Madrid, which seem to synchronise their bad patches. How is a girl to hedge her losses if both her teams have similar fortunes! Okay, i stop with the "twoddle"!
I took a week off for my move to UG aka Uganda, then was indisposed for another week, Malaria. Yep, that was Ug's way of showing me some love, and i appreciated it - aint hostility an expression of devotion?

So they say but Muffti never believed it. Malaria, eh? How is Uganda otherwise?

I don't know what to believe! Am completely recovered now. Uganda is exceedingly hot but if one can go around naked, it's great.
