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 repeat...so 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

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.

So we went to the Zoo...
Seals....duckin' and divin'
I've got my bead on...it's a right old suntrap.

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!
