Daily Twitterscopes (Scorpio): October 2009

Wednesday, October 7th

Take whatever time you need to sort out any problem relationships today: you don’t want to hurt anyone, & it never feels virtuous, but sometimes they just come to an end. There is currently no need to explain yourself or to understand; today is the day for when you couldn’t be more obvious. If you procrastinate you may find that you no longer understand what someone in your position is to do. Today you do; today is your day.

Tuesday, October 6th

Only you know if everything is in place today, whether everything seems alright. There’s a chill in the air & the sky’s turning black, & you may feel that there’s something missing; in the whispering rain & the trembling leaves it’s easy to feel this way. If you keep your head, stay centred & focus on your strengths you will be able to compensate for this feeling of loss, & rise above it.

Monday, October 5th

Although you may be unable to stay out all night & feel alright, it sometimes helps to remember that you’re not just here for business: you’re also here for fun. It doesn’t help if you know you don’t have any money; yet there’s often some little café where they play guitars all night & all night day. Your rosy day will come; someday you’ll look back on this & it will all seem funny.

Sunday, October 4th

You may be so energetic today that you are ready to shake your knees, bang the drum & cut the rug right where you are. Calming down is tricky- and that’s the basic dilemna of this Starr in your 3rd House of Laughter opposite the Sun in your 10th House of Plans. When the Autumn leaves come down, soon the snow flakes fall. So waste no moré time fooling around: act today on what you have discovered. You may go wrong but it will be alright as long as you are prepared to wait. If you deal the pack & check your hand you should get everything you expect.

Saturday, October 3rd

Today you may need to just slow down. In the evening, in the dark, stop: ‘til there’s not a sound, not one sigh, just the beat of your poor heart. It may be as if your mind begs you to please keep still, knowing it will be ending. Now you may find what the rest have left behind; just let them dance, you could find what you need in the dark.

Friday, October 2nd

You want to feel things are fine: ‘til the time you find your plans have died. You may be a diamond in the rough; wanting that special someone who stays & won’t play games behind you is perfectly normal. You don’t know that you will but until you can find yourself you have to be what you are: right or wrong, weak or strong.

Thursday, October 1st

You may have moved up while just trying to make a living; we’re not all movie stars or millionaires. Now, however, do you know where you came from or where you plan to go? Choosing to move on again is one way. Ultimately, however, time alone & thinking about your life are healthy ways to fix things. Like allvintage wine, sometimes it’s the best move just to stay put for a bit.

Daily Twitterscopes (Scorpio): September 2009

Wednesday, September 30th

You are quite private about your past, especially juvenile, success & are often overly careful about your appearance: for instance taking a long time making sure your hair’s alright before you got out at night. It’s not that you are afraid that you’ll look a mess, but – when the mood takes you – you love dancing & you love bands when they’re playing hard. Don’t be bowed; don’t let anyone put you down or say you’re wrong, you still look divine.

Tuesday, September 29th

You’ve been in stress mode, feeling unknown and all alone. Part of the problem is that you take second best; you’ve got things on your chest. Today, maybe you need to confess, to reach out & touch faith. Is there a special someone, maybe by the telephone, someone who cares? Looking forward you may find that they will deliver the forgiveness you need.

Monday, September 28th

If one could read your mind what a strange tale your thoughts could tell:  fortunately you are not required to act this way. So, for now, let’s be real, & light of foot: you never thought you could feel this way, so just try to understand the feelings that others lack.

Sunday, September 27th

You seem to be able to keep this world from dragging you down today. Somehow you can know what’s right, in an often petty world that keeps on pushing you around. Don’t worry that there seems to be no easy way out; sometimes you just have to stand your ground. You’re strong: you won’t back down

Drolgerg Does Istanbul #1: Why You Shouldn’t Always Listen To Your Mother

Drolgerg & wife took a brief break in Istanbul.

This is their story

There are actually times when you shouldn’t listen to what your mother tells you. We had decided that for our 3-day trip we were going to pack as light as possible so as to avoid tedium of the baggage carousel & take all our luggage on the ‘plane. We did our research on what you can’t take through customs: most liquids, aerosols, sharp pointy things, rocket-propelled grenades, meerkats & the like.

We stayed overnight with my wife’s parents as they’re close to Heathrow & they own beds & ovens & such that conveniently have walls & roofs built around them

After an intervention over my wife’s latest scheme to bring down the government, or at least people she doesn’t like, we got onto how smug we were feeling at cramming all our stuff into itsy bitsy cases.

“You can’t take mascara you know” mother-in-law says.


What mascara does to you on airplanes, say mothers-in-law

“What?” says my wife.

I say nothing as I’m not entirely sure what mascara is. Also in conversation involving my wife’s family I find that it’s generally the best policy anyway. Also they don’t pay any attention to anything I have to say, which is probably quite reasonable actually.

Mother-in-law is very convincing. Wife decides that she can go without her ladyshave, scissors, lotions & potions but no way in the world can she go to Turkey for 3 days without this mascara stuff.I’ve left behind my deodorant & razor, so by holiday’s end I expect to look & smell like this:

rasputinDespite the lack of deodorant probably being more her problem than mine, the fact remains that now all my sacrifices are in vain,  so we check in her luggage regardless, mascara & all.

Turns out mother-in-law dearest was wrong – you can take mascara (less than 100ml) onto airplanes! So there you go kids – sometimes what your parents say is actually total codswollop!

She’s lovely really, just wrong about mascara. Holiday off to great start!

Got luggage almost straight away at Istanbul airport, luckily, then off we went to the hotel.

So what do you think?
Is mascara evil?
Should you listen to your mother-in-law?
Do I look better with a beard?
Should we be allowed to take our meerkats on ‘planes?

My advanced psychomattress research techniques tell me that the average Blog of Drolgerg reader is smarter than the average bear, so I’d love to hear your comments here.

More to come: with nicer pictures, hopefully
