… at this point why not just buy a car?
People often comment on how Nazarenos look sinister, even without the obvious KKK reference. Well, this week while out on a Triana Tapas Tour (perfect for midday tours during Semana Santa – it was lovely and quiet over there!) I happened across a bakery that was closed for the holidays. And these little meringue nazarenos caught my eye, all droopy and melty from being left in a sunny shop window. And then I noticed the sad bendy birthday candles they were holding, an attention to detail that totally melted my heart.
There are so many answers to that question but I bet this is the first time anyone has said – because one day you’ll need it at the Post Office. I had been expecting a delivery from Amazon and thought it had been taking longer than usual, so I checked the tracking thingy on their website and saw that my parcel had been delivered to my address last Thursday (!!!). So I popped over to the Post Office and showed them the Amazon page on my iPhone, with the tracking number, my address, etc, and sure enough, they had my parcel. Obviously the guy had forgotten to leave a delivery notice.
So that was fine. Until I was asked for ID. Which I always have in my wallet. Except I didn’t have my wallet with me. I tried explaining that I had to be me because I’d already shown them the Amazon page that had my name and address on it, but they insisted on seeing photo ID. I was just about to leave in frustration to go home and get my wallet when I remember this blog post that I wrote ages ago. So I did a quick search, found the post, and showed them this photo of my (expired) driving licence. I still can’t believe it worked. Moral of the story: keep on writing because you just never know when blogging will come in handy. 🙂
Today I went to renew my residency card, which included getting a fingerprint taken, and the woman at the immigration office couldn’t get the machine to “accept” my print. She said they were very faint. It was then I remembered hearing something about this while I was on chemo, that taking Xeloda could actually wipe out your fingerprints, as happened to this guy. After quite a few tries with both thumbs and a couple of fingers the machine finally gave a little “ping” and I was okay. I was beginning to worry, wondering what would happen if they couldn’t get an acceptable print. So that was a relief. Also a good thing I never tried using the fingerprint ID option on my new iPhone…
On Saturday afternoon while out on my tapas tour with Rachel (now aka @JaenTapas) we spotted the shoes on the right dangling up there and I stopped to take a photo of this curious sight. I put the pic up on Twitter when I got home and probably would have forgotten all about it, except that two days later (yesterday) I spotted another pair of shoes up in the air which seemed, well, weird. So I also put that on Twitter and got a few responses including one from Baron Grim who left a Wikipedia link about shoe flinging which also mentioned “shoefiti”. Seriously – shoefiti?
Have you ever seen this before?
