Sprung!

It's an oft used expression at this time of year that Spring has sprung. That is exactly what has happened here. Not literally because that doesnt mean anything, but it's happened all the same. The following is one example of this which has sprung.

Happy this time of year.

If you celebrate it. Enjoy Easter, Passover, whatever, whether you're searching for eggs strewn about a garden, gorging on egg shaped chocolate (allegedly) brought by giant bunnies, or...

eating flat bread while telling a story about how awesome it was that when the creator of the universe ordered that all first borns in your land must die for reasons* that he (sorry He) spared the first born of all your group...

or....whipping ladies legs with colored ribbons, celebrating the brutal death (which likely never happened and we're not sure this guy ever even existed) and (alleged) resurrection of the (again alleged and really do you even consider it alleged when it's such an outrageous claim) son of God, and somehow spinning it into celebrations of spring which is totally not because those are things that people were celebrating at the time anyway...

or...

putting up springy decorations, ie the eggs and bunnies and chicks (some of them anyway) referenced above even though it's autumn because you live in a Northern Hemisphere-centric culture and are a typically Christian culture which celebrates these particular Pagan rituals this time of year, a combination of 2 or more of the previous or of one or some of them and something else, just hanging out with the family

or....

working because you're employed in the tourist industry in the most visited per capita city in Europe on a continent wide long weekend and you're one of the very few people at the company which does the tour to Prague Castle, the biggest tourist attraction in the aforementioned city, on it's busiest weekend of the year.

Happy season.

*Because the Pharoah wouldn't free His people, and when he started to think about it God hardened his heart and made him change his mind back, presumably so He could unleash all those plagues.

Framed


This is a view of Vitkov Hill, which I can also see from my window. There was a battle there. So, nearish where I live and very near one of the places I start work is some construction being done, quite a big job so they're making a bit of a song and dance about it, and have this lookout thingy with which to view it.

The hill is in the background and I thought a "framed" picture of it would be really cool. There were people standing on it every time I went there so it took me a while to get the photo, and then I realized it wasn't all that amazing. Posted it anyway.

Season

It's the season. Well it's a season. The days get longer and warmer (well where I happen to live now anyway not universally I don't forget that I come from the southern hemisphere I shan't be 'spherist with this well not very much anyway) it's the season when things bloom and it gets all pretty and stuff and if you work in the tourist industry as I do, then it's when all the people show up.. oh so many people. This season sucks, really, I fucking hate it  but what can one do? 


So anyway here's a springy picture. It's April 1st but I got no jokes, I'm all out of humour I shall be very serious and sensible from now on.. NOT! Oh yeah the picture.

And with this post I've already equaled last year's post count. That's going to have to do for an achievement this year.
