There's an Elephant in my ear

Of the earworm variety.

Flo demanded "The Elephant Song" 5 times in a row last night (before I pretended to forget the words) and now it's stuck in my head on permanent here, for your reading pleassure, are the words to "Effervescing Elephant" by Syd Barrett (the song in question).

An effervescing elephant, with tiny eyes and great big trunk,

Once whispered to the tiny ear - the ear of one inferior -

That by next June he'd die (oh yeah) because the tiger would roam

The little one said, "Oh my goodness I must stay at home!"

"And every time I hear a growl I'll know the tiger's on the prowl,

But he'll be really safe you know, the elephant he told me so."

Everyone was nervy (oh yeah) and the message was spread

To zebra, mongoose and the dirty hippopotamus

Who wallowed in the mud and chewed his spicy hippo-plankton food

And tended to ignore the word, preferring to survey a herd

Of stupid water bison (oh yeah) and all the jungle took fright

And ran around for all the day and the night.

But all in vain because the tiger came and said,

"Who me? No, I wouldn't eat not one of you;

I much prefer something to chew

And you're all too skant (oh yeah)

He ate the elephant.

I love the fact that we can play in the garden for a bit in the morning

Just some pictures for you today...I'm a bit busy and drinking too much coffee

No, I didn't expect this ramp to work either...Flo was convinced though.

Trying on the robot costume for size...

Chocolate croissant...

Smashin' Splashin'!

Flo's enjoyment was infectious...I joined her for a while. Random passing tourists were taking photos.

I have never seen anyone enjoy the simple pleasure of making the biggest splashes you can.

You should have seen the tantrum she chucked when I told her it was time to go...promises of further splashing were made...

Nowhere near as much fun as the fountain...but you can clearly see how pleased she is.

Bratislava and Bust

I've got lots of pictures of various bits of Bratislava, but rather than bore you with pictures of churches and Novy Most (mad UFO style bridge built by the Russkies), I'll leave you with a single represantive picture and tell you that something called a "Toast Manager" (which seemed innocuous enough when I ordered it) made me vomit because it tasted of musty mushrooms.

At least it amused Teh B055 for 2 days.

Meals from Camel indeed!
