I heard a Christmas song the other day, I sh*t you not. I say that but this year is flying by at a remarkable pace. I realised this earlier today when remembering that this would and should have been Notting Hill Carnival weekend, alas it too has been cancelled as a result of coronavirus, in all honesty it's probably the right decision. I do miss it though - I miss the smiles, the oversized sound systems, the overpriced cans of Red Stripe, the risk of taking a pee in the front garden of some posh West London house whilst trying to swerve the old bill. Ah, good times, at least my head won't hurt as much on the Tuesday after as usual.
Anyway, how's your week been? Taken your de-worming medication? That's right - apparently the latest mad conspiracy theory is that the coronavirus can be cured by taking de-worming pills meant for horses and cows. It seems pretty ludicrous to me but it's forced the US FDA to release a wonderful statement advising against the experimental use of the drugs.
"You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y'all. Stop it. Taking large doses of this drug is dangerous and can cause serious harm."
God bless America...
Meanwhile, back on this side of the world I've been following the adventures of my new favourite creature from the sea. If you haven't been keeping up with Wally the Walrus you are in for a treat - he's been all over as of late and I suggest your Friday afternoon is spent looking into his fantastic travels.
Anyway, that was wholesome wasn't it? Have a lovely weekend...
