Just and F-Blog #59. Well, inbetween...

... almost too many things that are going on here, I am still kinda live, it's just that I can hardly find enough time to devote to the WWWorld, because this darned thing called World is taking almost all of my time. After threesomething years of agony our government finally collapsed last week and it was announced today that we're having early elections on 4 Dec. Another wild ride for me as well, but as tiring as it might be, this is the time for a tiny political journalist. Whole Slovenia already has earful of me and there's more to come. LOL And, yes, inbetween that Autumn morning fog and really beautiful Indian Summer afternoons and days that are getting shorter and shorter and some stolen weekend goodness and Uroš's, lil baby Taja's father, PhD, and... I am still here. It just seems that LiveJournal will see occasional bursts of me and I will try to keep it on the "content side", because I don't want to cut myself down to Friday flashes, although that's the easiest thing to do, really. And I apologise in advance, because I might not be able to track every single bit and piece that will appear on here.

Anyway, here are a few shots from the last week or two. The set is, of course, flickr'd as well.

Time to go.

In case you didn't know, I am versatile.

02
Trilemma.

03
Indian Summer.

04
Sometimes even going to a press conference is pretty.

05
Congratulations, Uroš!

06
No shit.

07
Where?

08
We had a "mobility week". Street-bike-pimping was part of it, too.

09
One of those mornings...

10
Indeed.

I love this series!! Very evocative.

I have not had the chance to read the news but from your photographs it would seem that Slovenes are far too cultured and sophisticated to do anything in a messy, disorderly way--even total collapse of the govt.

You know we cherish your Friday flashes! No need at all to apologize!

Well, gov't is maybe falling to pieces, but life must go on, right? With all good stuff that's important. :)

It's an inbetween time here too, but we haven't got to the fog stage yet.

Congratulations to Uros! :)

Ah, Ljubljana! :)

I always enjoy your photo posts. Even when they aren't of the Friday kind. LOL

I hope at least your government crisis stays peaceful. xxx

I'd hate to see you leave LJ.

Collapsed Gov't - scary.

Ours won't collapse for a while - it's too corrupt to do that just yet. :P

Sep. 29th, 2011 02:54 pm (UTC)
hahahahahaha maybe ours was just corrupt enough to do it LOL

Glad to hear you're versatile... :-)

Please keep us informed of Slovenia's run-up to the election, and how you think things will go - and hope you can be busy AND enjoy yourself, too!

---and keep up the FYFF...!

Well, as much as you might guess, you know I won't forget about the "enjoy" part. :)

I had no idea.
Wow I thought it was rough here with our government nab,e to pull their collective head out of their ass to do something worthwhile.

I'll have to read the wires and see if I can get some more information about what is happening there.

Be safe, write when you can. Hugs

I'm surprised to see you use the expression "Indian Summer." Is that used in Slovenia, or did you learn it from your American friends? (I assume it's an American expression, but now I think I'll look it up!)

paterson_si
Sep. 29th, 2011 02:57 pm (UTC)
It's actually the expression we all use here.

Top pics.

I had no idea about the Slovenian government collapsing. I wouldn't object to early elections over here.

Sep. 29th, 2011 02:58 pm (UTC)
Well, I am sort of glad it happened, because the whole country was totally blocked.

But it will be sillybusy time for me.

And thanks. :)

Most of what I read about the crisis in Slovenia today was related to a financial downgrade. I'll look back further and try to understand what's going on. It seems like everyone's enduring some crazy, trying times.

Take care and let us know how you're doing soon....
paterson_si
Sep. 29th, 2011 02:59 pm (UTC)
Financial downgrade and the politics that's uncapable of dialogue. For the last 20 years now. Oh well... :)

Should I say he was a dish instead?

A cookie? :)
dendren
Oct. 5th, 2011 02:55 pm (UTC)
I don't know, you're still in the realm of eating him. Just call him a hottie and leave the tasty dish stuff out. no more zombies!
