Bratticus Nobilis is latin for what we in Sweden call “stekare” (“fryer”) or “brat” as in spoiled child. Bratticus nobilis are usually young guys with gelled hair combed backwards, a plain but expensive shirt, tight trousers, and with their head slightly tilted backwards so as to better look down on others.
Now there is something called Powerplate. It looks a bit like a hoovercraft from the future, but is actually a vibrating pad that you do exercises on and thereby tone your body. It might work, it might not. Lenah will try it, but since she is already fit it will be hard to judge the effectiveness of it. And I will probably stick to tennis courts and cisk, the most entertaining way of balancing calories.
Did you know that Flo rida actually is from Florida? I mean what a coincidence that his artist name put together is his home state. I don’t care if he doesn’t write his own songs, I mean, LOL what a clever guy!
The author of this post would like to acknowledge that “Erikzona”, a weird combination of Eriksson and a state in the U, S, and A, is a lot more clever and actually quite sexy.
In Hollywood…new topless pictures of Britney Spears has leaked out and Megan Fox is saying that they should legalize cannabis. But then again she is 22 or something, a dangerous age. Nope, I won’t link here. Google it yourselves, folks.
My song of the day is undoubtly “Follow the lights” by Ryan Adams and the Cardinals. With “Down in a hole” coming close second! And you can listen to them endlessly here
But in many other cultures, Monday is held to be the first day of the week. For example, Monday is xingqi yi (???) in Chinese, meaning day one of the week. The international standard, ISO 8601, defines Monday as the first day of the week. Its name in Georgian, Greek and Syriac means “first day”. Quakers also traditionally refer to Monday as “First Day” eschewing the pagan origin of the English name “Monday”. For similar reasons the official liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church refers to Monday as “Feria II”. (The Portuguese name for Monday reflects this, as do all the days’ names except Saturday and Sunday: the Portuguese word for Monday is segunda-feira.)
