Getting a Boob Job? Better pay up!

I always like those goofy news articles.

It seems all of the ladies just sort of walked out after the surgery without as much as a “by-your-leave” leaving the good doctor paymentless.

“Tanja” went out for “fresh air” after 8,000-euro ($10,000) surgery to enlarge her breasts. “She never came back and never paid,” Koenig said. He now plans to demand payment in advance.

It seems he also prepared “wanted posters” showing his handiwork.

Now correct me if I am wrong here, but just who is going to SEE these boobs? Husbands, boyfriends, various lovers? And that begs more questions!

1. Who is going to report this if they DO happen to stumble across those felonious knockers?

2. Who REALLY looks at them all that closely in the first place? I mean we need a POSITIVE ID right?? I happen to believe that a truly close breast examination often provides just too much information for the average viewer.

3. Presuming an arrest… Will there be a line-up?

4. Just how much freedom have the German police to examine the… ummm… the evidence… and maybe MOST important,

5. Anyone know where can I get ahold of one of those wanted posters!


Hoo are you?

A couple of nights ago, Piro started to go crazy in the back yard. This in itself is not so strange as she is a nutty animal under the best of circumstances and can always find something to go crazy about, but this was about 1 AM on a nasty, cold and rainy night and that bore some checking out. ML went to the window and announced that “something big” was in the back yard. I figured she was talking about the pool. Those of you who have spend any time on this blog know that my dear wifey is prone to…emmm… exagerate things. I decided the bed was a better option.



Something I learned today

Lately, my health has taken a bit of downturn. Seems that past a certain age, things begin to break. I am also becoming intimately familiar with the CAJA health care system in Costa Rica which I will expound upon soon in a future post.



Pope Makes First Papal Visit To Six Flags

1-Pope-Makes-C.jpgTo me, there are not too many web sites around that are any funnier than The Onion (on a good day!). These people are just not normal and their rampant silliness was exactly what I needed after a nasty day.

Today’s story about Pope Benedict XVI’s return to Rome following his historic, three-day trip to Six Flags St. Louis is just about as funny as it gets.

Anyway, I have no idea if this link will hold forever… but do take a read. It will brighten up your day unless you’re like terminally Catholic!


A Visit to Hooters & a Review

Ξ May 28th, 2006 | → 4 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Food, Humor, Maria Luisa |


I have never been to a Hooters Restaurant. There is no reason for this… just never did. Yesterday though, ML, friends Beverly and her husband Juan Carlos and I went to the Hooters in Escazu. Generally, I avoid the restaurants in Escazu and Santa Ana as they are just horribly overpriced, but ML wanted a salad and to see what all the fuss was about at Hooters, so off we went.

Our waitress represented the average Hooters wait person and saying that, it was clear that this chain was named Hooters for a reason. I also discovered just how easy it is for a person to regress… regardless of how well trained they are… or thought they were.



Meet Rolando!

marias_bugOK… It’s a Sunday morning, and I am lying in the bed. Maria has headed off to the kitchen to make coffee and toast. I am sorta dozing a bit, then in flies ML, all excited.

In her hand, she is holding a cloth and it appears to be moving without assistance. In fact it is wiggling!



Now THIS is Depressing… or Interesting!

OK… so I stopped blogging in January for a lot of reasons… then, a fews days ago, I begin again.

Now I don’t advertise this blog much. Two or three links in other sites that I am involved with, but I have been blessed with a group of followers, kinda like blog groupies (bloupies? groggies? groggers?) who come back and visit on a regular basis to read my pearls.



Ever the Optimists

I love a lot of things about the Costa Ricans, but one of my favorites is their overwhelming optimism when it comes to football (soccer to you heathens up North). On June 9, 2006 (my sister’s birthday BTW if you want to send me a gift of money that I PROMISE I will forward to her), Costa Rica faces Germany in the opening round of the World Cup.



I bet the boys are PO’d!

A member of the Ugandan parliament has pledged to reward girls for their chastity by paying their university fees if they are virgins when they leave high school.

Bbaale County MP Sulaiman Madada said any girl in his district who wanted to take part in the scheme aimed at promoting girls’ education would be given a gynecological examination by health workers to check they were virgins.

Probably don’t have a Ugandan Civil Liberties Group there huh?

The orginal article is here Oddly Enough News Article | but they don;t leave them up for long.

Oh… and The MP did not extend his offer to young men… apparently because he was unwilling to accept a boy’s word that he was, in fact, a virgin. Whatta surprise!


There are rules for calling shotgun?

Ξ May 14th, 2006 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Humor, Whatever |

OK… So I saw this the other day… Who knew there were RULES? In my youth, the person who GOT shotgun had nothing to do with who CALLED shotgun. The coveted right front seat space went to the person who could kick everyone else’s ass.
