Tearing at that brain of mine

Oh, to those who know about both blogs, these arent the same word for word,  just the same subject, as I only felt it fair all should know. And hey, its a different video too, so stop complaining!

Saturday I had another seizure, thats the reason for the delay between blogs. If you want to call it a system failure (more apt for a robot?) then fine, but more strictly, just another brain malfunction. This time I didnt need to go to hospital at the time, as I came round (sort of) after a short while, but still went up there yesterday,  when semi aware again, just to make sure, but got cleared after checks.

Yes, seriously, my organic body, especially the brain is thoroughly busted, but I live at least. But yes, seriously, if anyone has a robot body they want to test out, oh please…! Sadly it means the MRI (Sunday) and follow up EEG (yesterday) never happened, and will need to be sorted out before someone whisks me off to Oregon regardless (love you, Kiefer) to get me sorted out that way. He knows I’ll do as I’m commanded (as a good robot should) once these tests are done, but anyway…

I know, I keep hoping they will stop, but seemingly not to be. Anyway, I’ve officially given up the thought of getting back to work, only have about a month less of half sick pay, so lets face it, organic repair isnt go to happen in time.

Ironic, isnt is, I wanted something weird to be done to my brain, but this wasnt quiet what I had in mind! Still, its been ‘tampered’ with, so I guess I cant complain too much?

OK, video time. Two golden oldies tonight, and yes, I suspect I wanted to be Polly Brown as a child?

Boris, who I’d probably get for love

And no, before anyone works about me, no, not Johnson. Strictly, its Karloff, though you have to work back one step, for the authors name at least. The amusing thing is, I know him between by yet another name totally, and goodness only knows what name he uses for me. But enough of that, this blogs story piece is

Oh, and this shows how long I’ve known, and got along well with this guy for, as this is 13 years old!

https://mcstories.com/Repairs/index.html

My personal tip, read both, and probably some of his other stuff, you wont be disappointed!

But going back to his current story… I have in my time used a few messenger services, currently I stick to Facebook, and Twitter, though I used Yahoo a lot in the very old days. I’ve also used, jokingly, a couple of these romance finding sites, but never met anyone through them, but thats probably me, more than them. But fine, unless one of my contacts was Karloff, Lugosi, or Chaney, I’d probably pass anyway. Well, there is Rotwang, but besides that…

So no, I’ve never found a contact site quite like this one, for sure. Doubt I’d make a target now, anyway. And besides, if ‘Mr Pratt’ was involved, I’d probably end up with the most ridiculous pair of boobs if I did! Either that or I’d get the special deal and look like a stunning young lady, lol, though probably even then, with bigger boobs than average!

Its funny, ‘William’ is one of those people I’ve known, and enjoyed the online company of for many years, but that I know I’m never going to meet. We’d probably both be a disappointment to each other,but besides that…

Bless you, Geo, enjoy your moment of blog fame, lol.

OK, video time. Well, when do you go to dating agency sites. When you need to be…

We talk in C, you talk in F

To those not getting the title, think temperatures. Here in the UK, as with so many parts of the world, we do them in Centigrade. But the US is one of few now that still does them in Fahrenheit. It means I still tend to think in the latter, because otherwise most of my friends across the Pond would think it was always below freezing over here. It does give me some fun moments over here when talking to Brits, and I do temperatures in F, and they look at me as if crazy lol.

Of course thats just one of numerous things that despite supposedly talking the same language, English, that is different between us, and the US. We put a u in so many words that Americans dont, and we pronounce words differently too. And thats before you even get to the whole lift/elevator thing too.

Anyway, last week one of my fellow EMCSA writers did a play on this in his story

https://mcstories.com/SnapsToClicks/index.html

No, I dont know which side of the pond he’s actually on, by the way.

Of course the snag with a story like this is that most of the amusement is lost unless you travel between the UK, and the US, like I do. Mind, to add to the confusion, though strictly we are now a metric country, all the road signposts are still in miles, not kilometres, and all our horse racing is still in miles, furlongs, and yards too, not metres. Yes, I remember when Ireland was changing between the two, you would find signposts in miles, others in kilometres, and no clue as to which was which, beyond (but not infallibly) the age of the signs, in that old ones would be miles, new ones kilometres, but anyway…

OK, the video, one of the songs most suitable for the issue discussed. It proves that not only could Fred, and Ginger dance in shoes (her in heels), but on roller skates too!

Das Robotermodell

That will probably get a few dashing to Google Translate, or whichever Translate engine you wish, though seriously, its not that hard to work out, is it?

Given that you cant wear anything metal within a MRI scanner, even zips, I’ve started to try and work out what I can actually wear for the scan, as my slacks all tended to have a buckle on them, even if the slacks are elasticated waists. Most of my skirts have got a metal zip on them too. So I’m sort of coming down to a summer dress, or one of my strapless ones to get over the issue.

But I must admit, the one amusing idea that has crossed my mind, though I suspect its now too late to get one, would be to have it done wearing a silver spandex bodysuit, including ideally a hood. Seriously, can you imagine the fit of giggles I could have, sliding into the MRI chamber wearing that? Even if I had to do it, under a summer dress, for sake of demureness? As I say, not sure I could even get one in time, especially given we’ve now hit the weekend, though that seems to count for less, nowadays. I have actually got the old one (no hood), which if I wore it under said dress, well…? Yes, I have got a hood, but I believe its glittery, so no go, sadly.

I suppose its struck me that said MRI chamber is about as close as I’m likely to get to a robot processing moment in my life now, lets face it. No, I probably wont, but I’m not saying I wont, especially with a full body suit, including hood, could I resist, probably not? What me, strip down to the spandex suit only, before getting in the chamber, well…? I suspect the zip on the commercial ones are probably metal, anyway. And no, I’m not going to find a velcro seal one, in a week, am I?

Right, the video. Kraftwerk, and the vocals are definitely live, though pretty sure the music isnt. Oh, and the German version of the song too, as the blog title might have given away

We will be fine…Apollo 11

So fine, thats not the flight number in the song tonight, but hey, who’s counting?

50 years ago today, a child saw a space rocket take off, complete with lunar module, and a 2 couple of now famous astronauts who were going to be famous for being the first to walk on the moon, but lets pass a thought for the poor man left behind in the rocket while they grabbed all the glory.

They had been building up to it, with the previous flight circling the moon, but not sending anyone down to the surface. I missed the actual first step live seemingly, because accordingly to the internet, it happens in the middle of the night my time, and good 11 year old girls with school the next day would have been asleep. Well, I assume I had school the next day, but given that term would be nearly over, and I would have already sat the exams to go to Grammar School that autumn, I cant be 100% sure. But even so, at about 3.30 am, I was in bed asleep!

Of course there are those who say it was all faked, in a studio, somewhere in the US. But given their rivals like the USSR acknowledged the event, I’m of the group who believe it was real. Of course there are some who believe no one has ever been in, or sent anything into space, but how we watch live events, from the other side of the world, without satellites, dont ask me?

But hey, I might have readers that genuinely believe I’m a robot, or an alien, so besides all that…?

It must be strange, standing on the Moon, looking back at Earth, but I doubt I will ever find out for myself. But a few men know, at least.

Oh, one piece of trivia before I finish. This was the first time that the command centre wasnt an entirely male affair. Yes, shock horror, one woman was allowed in for the first time. Oh my, hasnt the world moving on in that sense in the last 50 years. for sure?

OK, video time. Strictly this is credited to Adam Ant, but the backing group are all the Ants, so regardless…

Oh, fine, we need something relating to the actual flight, but fortunately, OMD to the rescue. Though given this is from Sugar Tax, its not the famous classic lineup

See the aliens, lying there in the sun

Seemingly, in the last couple of days, someone thought it was a great idea to start a group on Facebook, with the intention of invading Area 51, on the 20th September, to rescue the aliens being held there. No, dont laugh, at the last point yesterday, over 400,000 people had supposedly accepted the invitation to be there. Now I know, most are only being sheep, and following the crowd by joining, but it seems there are a few crazies actually planning to do this!

In truth, I suspect that number is a few hundred, or less, probably a lot less but lets consider the facts, maybe from an alien’s point of view?

Area 51 is a highly protected area (for whatever reason), and unless all these people are going to beam in at exactly the same moment, seconds before the invasion, they’re going to get noticed. And given the speed that anything more than 1 person acting suspiciously in the area is greeted by armed guards, the chance of a few hundred thousand people being allowed to gather in the area, especially given they’ve advertised the plan, its really not going to happen, is it? Or is it that the aliens, or the military have set this all up, so they can test out some new technology on a number of gullible idiots?

Weapons? A shortage of Anal Probing victims? A body swapping project, or a transformation device to turn humans into aliens? Besides, lets face it, if there is anything interesting in Area 51, giving them 2 months notice to get it out of the area, well…?

Or lets look at it from the other perspective, after 72 years, do you really think all we, sorry, those aliens are all still patiently waiting in Area 51 to be rescued? Hey, we, sorry again, they are safely spread out around the world by now. Just think how annoying its going to be if I have to go back to Area 51 in September to help out with all the organic being processing that is going to need to be done. Still, at least my flying saucer can get to Nevada in about 2-3 hours, so no great deal. But clearing all that air space for us, seriously, I guess we will just have to fly at 60,000 feet, or even in outer space to get there.

But fine, I havent convinced you, you still think there are thousands of aliens, with their spacecraft parked up in Area 51? Well…

OK, I’ll do you a deal, I’ll offer a round the planet flight, in outer space, in my top notch space craft to anyone depositing $10,000 in my Paypal account (robotunit8@hotmail.com) prior to the invasion, and I’ll sort it. Yes, we aliens, in Area 51, or elsewhere all have internet, didnt you know?  Just show the receipt to your alien captors, and it will all be arranged from there. Would be wise, because those without receipts, well, ouch! Those anal probing devices they want to test, well… As for your new body, yes, I’m sure you’ll look cute!

Oh, and that ‘alien whore house’ on the edge of the Area, that you are all assume are humans dressed as Aliens, well…? 😉

The video, what you might want to do before being caught in Area 51, without a flight ticket, maybe?

The Sterling Countdown

Generally nowadays, I try to catch the national news at least a few times in a week, just to find out whats going on, but I avoid the regional news that precedes it on ITV for good reason. Unfortunately, Wednesday, I collided with it. To be fair, I’ve seen some of the regional news programmes in the US, and fine, they arent a lot better, but seriously, I have no idea where they got the couple that present the evening show in Yorkshire, but in all honesty, they could probably do better by going to any Amateur Drama Group in the county, grab a pair of people, and they’d be better.

Anyway, the article I caught, that lowered my opinion of them even more came on Wednesday. It could have been done decently, the subject being the fact that the pound now goes a lot less distance in Europe than it used to. Nothing to do with raging costs in Europe, and entirely to do with Brexit.

They started out by pointing out that about 5 years ago, you got 1.50 Euro to the pound. Then they mentioned that before the referendum, it was still around 1.40 to the pound. But it was the next line that killed me, they actually said they were shocked that it collapsed to about 1.20 after the referendum result was announced. They then added that they couldnt understand why (despite all going on) that it was now worth nearer 1.10.

They then went on to show a film of a number of people from the region saying much the same thing, and complaining about the fact, and some even said that they were sure it would improve all the way back again when we left Europe (stop laughing), which is as likely as me winning Miss United Kingdom! It might, I suspect, with a decent deal improve again, but to expect 1.50 to the pound again, oh please!

In  truth, the thing that scares me is that people actually believe this, but anyway… Yes, I wish I’d stored some Euros/Dollars away, but ah well…

The video? Well its only just over 3 months away, supposedly, so I guess we’re in this?
